Graham Hancock Sees The Future In The Past

Lost Knowledge of the AncientsThe good folks at Bear and Company recently mailed us a new release that’s been keeping us up nights.

Lost Knowledge of the Ancients: A Graham Hancock Reader is a collection of essays curated by Graham Hancock at his website. This volume gathers these contributions together in print for the first time and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

A book of essays by various authors certainly encourages grazing more than cover-to-cover reading, but no matter where one begins or ends this exploration of possible histories, one finds unexpected connections.

Lost includes essays by Robert Bauval, Mark Booth, Richard Hoagland, Robert Schoch, John Anthony West and Hancock himself. While the book is wide-ranging, covering topics from pole shifts to quantum philosophy to antediluvian history, its real strength lies in the themes that run throughout the book:

* The human race is much older than we think.

* There was a highly advanced human civilization that pre-dated ancient Egypt.

* Until we understand this ancient history, we will never understand who we really are.

    As much as I love the idea of ancient history having a lot more to it than we believe, I realized I’ll never buy this book once I saw Richard Hoagland’s name on it. If it’s the same Richard Hoagland who spent 20 years trying to sell people on that “face on Mars” crap which was since disproven, then got accused of fraud and plagiarism, then got spanked repeatedly by Phil Plait (who’s an actual scientist, unlike Hoagland), then it’s probably a waste of paper.
