History is Wrong?
Erich von Daniken again shows his flair for revealing the truths that his contemporaries have missed. After closely analyzing hundreds of ancient and apparently unrelated texts, he is now ready to proclaim that human history is nothing like the world religions claim and he has the proof!
In History Is Wrong, Erich von Daniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery, and makes some intriguing revelations about the equally incredible Book of Enoch.
Von Daniken also unearths the astounding story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels. He supplies evidence that the metal library has links not only to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers.
And what about the mysterious lines in the desert of Nazca that resemble landing strips when viewed from the air? Archeologists claim they are ancient procession routes. Think again! cries von Daniken, as he reveals the data that the archeologists never even thought to check.
History Is Wrong will challenge your intellect...and maybe a few long-held beliefs.
Mr Daniken is praiseworthy for daring to think outside the dominant archaeological paradigm; however, there are other options to explain the mysteries he deals with, such as the Lines of Nazca. We do not need aliens when we provide boats to the Megalith Builders. Not so famous as the Lines of Nazca, but much more ancient, the neighboring Lines of Palpa can provide the clue to solve the mystery. I am working to demonstrate that these trapezoids were pointers to key sites of Europe and Egypt. The explanation is relatively simple, based on astronomic considerations, as I will explain soon at http://onemysteryless.wordpress.com
Von Daniken was convicted of fraud and sent to jail. While in jail he published his second book. The most amazing thing about it is that he supposedly did all his original on location research from his jail cell. He has published fiction under the guise of fact and has bilked many a person out of their money.
I have not read enough Von Daniken to be able to argue intelligently for or against his claims. I do think he has raised an interesting alternate view to the accepted though. If you do not pause and give a respectable pause and thought to his theories you are cheating yourself. We should never blindly accept what anyone says is fact. We should continually research and ask questions. Find out for yourself. Don't just take what someone says as the truth.
His work added value but has lead to many people Fool-owing cults of UFO garbage or History Channel disinformation. Humanity is the engineer of it's past and future - but it won't survive if people don't wake up and start questioning what is really happening now and in the past.
Those who try to define or somehow limit spirituality end up ignoring its nature and those who accept it blindly assign it virtues beyond its purpose. It is not just religion or metaphysical science which concerns mankind as we try to make sense of our present and future potential to address the ethics and technologies that could allow real growth and movement away from our history of destructive acts that develop warfare rather than our total potential as life on Earth. Here is a case in point dealing with history and the cultural contact that took place in pre-Columbian times with the Americas. It is my response to someone who thinks you can tell a whole new history in a few threads who also has not read many of the excerpts much less any of my books.
'Science has found Roman and Etruscan settlements in America and many other cultures too. It is reported in the original writings of the first missionaries and it is in modern archaeology. There were Basque speaking communities in Central America found in the last century and Rongorongo of Ilavarta and Easter Island was there too.
No, in fact the problem is rather what Lord Renfrew has said. History has been shown to be a pack of lies. Lord Renfrew, Disney Professor of Archaeology at Cambridge University states:
"Archaeologists all over the world have realized that much of prehistory, as written in the existing textbooks, is inadequate. Some is quite simply wrong. What has come as a considerable shock, a development hardly foreseeable just a few years ago, is that prehistory, as we have learnt it is based upon several assumptions which can no longer be accepted as valid.."
I have both personal expertise and actual hands-on experience in Central America as well as the original languages which fieldworkers have found most insightful. My prognostications are always proven correct as new evidence comes forward (Hobbit, Bonobos - being two in the last year which further add to the Portuguese baby that is a crossbreed hominid) and there are examples of this in most sciences.
But what has served the 'social engineers' well is that they can say things like 'What is the peer reviewed opinion'? When there are no funds going to Phoenician Doctoral programs and no integrators of all science through all the world over all of history it is hard to have any peers.
Or they can point to another era and time and say something to bamboozle the student who sees the person speaking knows that era and people very well. But all these people or races and nations are not real history but rather a record of what politics and religion (social engineering) has done to separate people from their 'brothers'.
Thus I have had to have a complete picture or framework going back to the first white people and even how they might have come into being. Some of the pre-white people ideas are very speculative but I think I have done that framework of real history and the elite families who managed it. But no one (or four) books can put the picture together and thus pundits (often paid by 'social engineers') can say he refers to his other books for more on the point and avoids the issue. But I have to target certain issues and not the issue they might raise at that point in that particular book.'
I have older evidences of cross-breeding now - but do not forget academics were laughing at me about saying it for most of my life.
Next up is National Geo saying they have pinpointed when humans first mated with Neanderthals. It is good that they are finally admitting it happened but to say they have the first? NONsense and ego!!!!!
