Michael A Cremo is a research associate of the Bhaktivedanta Institute specializing in the history and philosophy of science. His persistent investigations during.

He concludes that the book is only "superficially scholarly". These ideas can compel researchers to publish their analyses according to the conceptions permitted by the scientific community. Writing in the British Journal for the History of Science, Dr Tim Murray [10] wrote, "This is a piece of 'Creation Science,' which, while not based on a need to present a Christian alternative, manifests many of the same types of argument," including accusing opponents of unscientifically trying to defend their biases, alleging they are acting conspiratorially, and explaining "the currently marginal position of your alternative as being the result of prejudice, conspiracy and manipulation rather than of any fault of the theory itself.

Writing in Geoarcheology, [9] anthropologist Kenneth L. Feder said, "While decidedly antievolutionary in perspective, this work is not the ordinary variety of antievolutionism in form, content, or style. In distinction to the usual brand of such writing, the authors use original sources and the book is well written. Further, the overall tone of the work is far superior to that exhibited in ordinary creationist literature.

Nonetheless, I suspect that creationism is at the root of the authors' argument, albeit of a sort not commonly seen before. Murray [10] wrote that "far from being a disinterested analysis", Forbidden Archeology "is designed to demolish the case for biological and chemical evolution and to advance the case for a Vedic alternative". The conspiracy that killed JFK, and the cover-up that followed, is the forerunner for a lot of what you're going to read about in these pages.

In fact, the idea behind this book came out of writing my last one, American Conspiracies. In poring through numerous documents, many of them available through the Freedom-of-Information Act, I came to realize the importance of the public's right to know.

Let me begin by saying how concerned I am that we're moving rapidly in the direction President Kennedy tried to warn us about.

Classical texts suggest that all its inhabitants perished when the city sank beneath the waves after suffering a disastrous combination of earthquake and tidal wave. Some scholars have speculated that the catastrophe may well have been the source of Plato's story of Atlantis, a land that supposedly suffered a similar fate. During the summer, Greek and American researchers These revealed archaic walls, classical ceramic fragments and, perhaps most significantly, evidence that the ruins had been submerged beneath the sea.

Note: Here is solid evidence of ancient manmade structures that were submerged for a period under sea water, yet now are above sea level.

The evidence suggests an ancient civilization from many thousands of years ago, yet most archeologists will not entertain this idea. For a powerful interview that questions the consensus of archeologists, click here.

A dispute between the Brazilian Navy and an American marine archeologist has led Brazil to bar the diver from entering the country and to place a ban on all underwater exploration. The dispute involves Robert Marx, a Florida author and treasure hunter, who asserts that the Brazilian Navy dumped a thick layer of silt on the remains of a Roman vessel that he discovered inside Rio de Janeiro's bay.

The reason he gave for the Navy's action was that proof of a Roman presence would require Brazil to rewrite its recorded history, which has the Portuguese navigator Pedro Alvares Cabral discovering the country in Navy officials said. The story goes back to when lobster divers first found potsherds studded with barnacles.

Then a Brazilian diver brought up two complete jars with twin handles, tapering at the bottom, the kind that ancient Mediterranean peoples widely used for storage and are known as amphoras. According to Elizabeth Will, a professor of classics and specialist in ancient Roman amphoras at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the jars are very similar to the ones produced at Kouass, a Roman Empire colony that was a center for amphora-making on the Atlantic coast of Morocco.

Reached by telephone, Professor Will said of the fragments she had studied: ''They look to be ancient and because of the profile, the thin-walled fabric and the shape of the rims I suggested they belong to the third century A.

The book is The book's aim is to kill off once and for all the public-schoolboy perception of [Cecil] Rhodes as the model Englishman who selflessly deployed his vast diamond wealth to the task of civilising Southern Africa while adding, virtually single-handedly, a chunk of territory the size of Europe to Her Majesty's imperial possessions.

The picture that persuasively emerges in the book [is] of a man of immense charm and demonic single-mindedness. Thus the famous lines from his precocious personal credo, drafted at the age of "I contend that we are the finest race in the world, and the more of the world we inhabit, the better it is for the human race.

He beat his rivals not by fighting them but by seducing them. By bribery Rhodes coined the expression "every man has his price" or sheer force of personality, or more often both, he submitted members of the British cabinet, Kruger's Boers and proud African chieftains to his colossal will.

Such were his powers of persuasion that after a smallpox epidemic struck Kimberley in , he prevailed upon local doctors to sign false documents declaring the outbreak to be a rare skin disease. Thus did he prevent the temporary closure of his diamond mines and thus did at least people needlessly, hideously die.

Most paleobotanists say that angiosperms didn't appear until the late Cretaceous period about 70 million years ago. But Cremo never explains why these potential revelations threaten biological evolution.

In their separate reviews reprinted in this book, Tarzia and Bradley Lepper revealed Cremo's biological misunderstandings while critiquing his "ape-man" chapter. Forbidden Archaeology and its abridged version, Hidden History of the Human Race , claimed that Bigfoot, Yeti, and other backcountry "wildmen" really exist and threaten evolution.

Because if someone caught a live Sasquatch, that would prove ancient hominids still coexist with modern humans.

Review: Forbidden Archaeology's Impact

But on page , Tarzia accuses Cremo and Thompson of "ignoring the possibility of shared common ancestry. On page , Lepper says, "Cremo and Thompson devote an entire chapter to reports of 'living ape-men' such as Bigfoot, which, even if true, contribute nothing to their thesis that anatomically modern humans lived in geologically recent times.

And the evidence documented in Hidden History suggests that they did coexist in the distant past. If he concedes that humans and nonhuman hominids coexisting today would not undermine human evolution, then what was the purpose of his ape-man chapter to begin with? And if modern humans and apelike hominids coexisted in the distant past, paleoanthropologists will always presume that they shared an even earlier ancestry.

For example, even though some paleontologists and ornithologists currently disagree over whether birds diverged from Cretaceous maniraptorans a specific group of dinosaurs or earlier Triassic thecodonts tree-dwelling reptiles , neither side claims their disagreement invalidates the conclusions of common ancestry for dinosaurs and birds. What's more, Cremo is oblivious to biological context.

One of many reasons why scientists accept evolution is because humans share numerous anatomical traits with all living mammals, not just primates. But if we embrace the notion that modern people lived on earth million years ago, long before the arrival of other mammals, reptiles, fish, vertebrates, or any animal with a skeleton or hard body part, then biological patterns would be rendered senseless. Even if we overlook the implausibility of humans' thriving in an oxygen-starved world without available food sources, think about what it would mean to have people living on earth, eons before the first arthropods arrived.

Finding fossilized humans at every level of the geologic column would not be anomalous at all. Those finds would be the rule, not the exception, and a Darwinian paradigm would have never seized a foothold to begin with. But of all the criticisms aimed at Forbidden Archaeology , Cremo objects most to those who labeled it pseudoscience, which is understandable.

Cremo and Thompson toiled for 8 years on this comprehensive reference work, and calling it a pseudoscience is the same thing as labeling it a fraud. But when I read Forbidden Archaeology's Impact's reprinted correspondence that Cremo exchanged with his sympathizers and supporters, he appears too stubborn and sanctimonious to follow scientific rules.

For example, if Cremo and Thompson wanted their debut to be taken seriously, they should have first submitted their findings through an extensive peer-review process, but Cremo thinks "peer-review" simply means conspiracy and censorship. Like all creationists, Cremo's not looking for real answers - just believers. Next, let's examine portions of the two following letters that Cremo wrote to his supporters. This first one on page , is addressed to Dr Horst Friedrich: In your review, you note that Richard Thompson and I did not discuss the idea of recurring catastrophes or the evidence for advanced civilization mentioned in the Vedic literatures of India.We also find that a process of knowledge filtration has left current workers with a radically incomplete collection of facts.

The full text of this article hosted at iucr. Ventura draws on public but often overlooked information about such events as John F. For those working in disciplines connected with human origins and antiquity, Forbidden Archeology, provides a well-documented compendium of reports absent from many current references and not otherwise easily obtainable.

For example, FA devotes pages to analyzing anomalous stone tools depicted in obscure literature over the past years.
