Présentation de l'éditeur

by Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson
Over 200,000 copies sold in 18 languages.

Over the centuries, researchers have found bones and artifacts proving that humans like us have existed for millions of years. Mainstream science, however, has suppressed these facts. Prejudices based on current scientific theory act as a 'knowledge filter', giving us a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect.

Scientific Establishment Found Guilty of Witholding Evidence

The evolutionists’ “knowledge filter” at work over the last 200 years has left us with a radically altered view of our human origins and antiquity. Since 1993, when the controversial book, Forbidden
Archeology, was first published it has shocked the scientific world with its extensive evidence for extreme human antiquity. It documents hundreds of anomalies in the archeological record that
contradict the prevailing theory and shows how this massive amount of evidence was systematically “filtered” out. This book puts all the “pieces” on the table. You can then judge for yourself how objective the scientific community is in its pursuit of knowledge!

“Forbidden Archeology is a remarkably complete review of the scientific evidence concerning human origins. It carefully evaluates all the evidence, including the evidence that has been ignored because it does not fit the dominant paradigm. Anyone can learn a great deal from the authors’ meticulous research and analysis, whatever one concludes about their thesis regarding the antiquity of human beings.”
—Dr. Phillip E. Johnson, University of California, Berkeley, author of Darwin on Trial

“I perceive in Forbidden Archeology an important work of thoroughgoing scholarship and intellectual adventure. Forbidden Archeology ascends and descends into the realms of the human construction of scientific ‘fact’ and theory: postmodern territories that historians, philosophers, and sociologists of scientific knowledge are investigating with increasing frequency. . . .
With exacting research into the history of paleoanthropological discovery, Cremo and Thompson zoom in on the epistemological crisis of the human fossil record, the process of disciplinary
suppression, and the situated scientific handling of ‘anomalous evidence’ to build persuasive theory and local institutions of knowledge and power.”
—Dr. Pierce J. Flynn, Department of Arts and Science, California State University, San Marcos

“Forbidden Archeology, written primarily for the layman, provides a critical review of evidence relevant to human evolution. In addition, the book will serve as a valuable resource of forgotten literature, which is usually not easily accessible. If it stimulates professional reinvestigation of reports not fitting the current paradigm on human evolution, Forbidden Archeology will have contributed
to the advancement of knowledge of the history of mankind.”
—Dr. Siegfried Scherer, Institute for Microbiology, Technical Universtiy of Munich, Germany

“One of the landmark intellectual achievements of the late 20th century…Sooner or later, whether we like it or not, our species is going to have to come to terms with the facts that are so impressively documented…and these facts are stunning.”
—Graham Hancock, author, Fingerprints of the Gods

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Très interessant, en dehors des sentiers battus 29 janvier 2013
Par Pr Zorg
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ce livre remet en cause pas mal de choses qu'on apprend à l'école dès le plus jeune âge sur les origines de l'humanité.
Beaucoup de mystères demeurent.
Ce livre pose aussi beaucoup de questions sur la science en général: le système classique de peer-review, avec ces leaders d'opinion, et les idées qui ont "pignon sur rue".
Paradoxalement, il est depuis toujours très difficile pour les scientifiques les plus créatifs de faire valoir leurs idées, d'autant plus que quand elles sont très (trop) nouvelles et donc dénigrées par ceux qui sont dans le politiquement correct, leur exposition publique verse dans le fatras de ce que les journalistes appellent la 'théorie du complot', vocable initialement plutôt politique, maintenant utilisé à toutes les sauces.
La vérité est là et elle est unique, n'en déplaise à ceux qui ne veulent pas la voir. Et trier le vrai du faux a toujours été très difficile.
A l'école, on enseigne aussi toujours aux petits enfants l'exemple de Galilée (pour leur montrer que maintenant, nous sommes beaucoup plus civilisés), et pourtant... rien n'a vraiment changé ceci ne touche pas uniquement l'archéologie, loin de là. Même les sciences plus exactes sont régulièrement retardées de la même façon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 History you won't see taught in school... 19 janvier 2009
Par SmokeNMirrors - Publié sur
...which in itself should tell you everything you need to know about modern "education"...

After having spent best part of the last 6 months reading this juggernaut and cross-checking references, I can only say that the authors have done a tremendous job of proving that the evidence for the great antiquity of man is at least as strong as much of the evidence commonly accepted today as proof of human history. Those reviewers who claim the authors do not know their subject, or that they employ junk science or bad archaeology, quite simply have not read the book. Those claims are based more upon the (often very impressive) ignorance and preconceptions of the reviewers; do not be put off by them. Examine the evidence and judge for yourself.

Not only do they present a very strong case that we should either open our minds or discard most, if not all, of the commonly accepted evidence of human antiquity, but they demonstrate very clearly how the process of knowledge filtration works to preserve orthodox beliefs and bury contradictory evidence. This is a very important part of the discussion because it needs to be understood why a lot of evidence which was once widely accepted is now widely regarded as mythical or having never existed at all (look at some of the early reviews for this book, mostly from Mr. A Customer, which show how widespread that view is).

I started reading this book with no preconceptions at all except for a nagging suspicion that large parts of the history we are asked to uncritically swallow are wrong and known to be wrong by certain small groups of people. It strikes me from the evidence discussed that not only is the accepted version of human history inaccurate, it is almost completely wrong!

A note of caution: the above does not mean that I believe that every artefact uncovered is unequivocal proof that human beings were around millions, and hundreds of millions, of years ago. Nor do I believe every piece of evidence the authors present. Indeed, they make it abundantly clear that they themselves do not. As in all such situations, the point is that ALL of the evidence should be publicised, examined and analysed - evenhandedly. In too many walks of life there is a dogmatic and dangerously arrogant attitude that all there is to know has already been discovered. This is rarely true; this book is yet more evidence of that. Those who insist that works such as this should be consigned to the scrap heap are blissfully unaware of a very basic fact; that their ignorance is total.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fascinating Read 21 janvier 2011
Par B. J. Soder - Publié sur
I just finished reading this book cover to cover. Despite its 900+ page length, the book is written for the layman and is an easy, fascinating read that holds your attention and leaves you wanting to read more every day - took me a couple of weeks to get through it, reading for 1 - 5 hours every day or so. And I'm a pretty fast reader.

If you thought the theory of evolution was cut and dried, with all those cute pictures of hairy ancestors with hominid bodies and ape-like faces and that nifty "family tree" with all the branches, then you've been swallowing what popular media has been feeding you hook, line and sinker. I was amazed to find that, behind the scenes, there is an incredible amount of desention among respected paleoarcheologists about what all these fossils and artifacts mean, how to date them, and what they say about the history of the human race. It'st unfortunate that only one of the many theories - evolution - has been pushed to the public.

The authors don't just throw facts at you. They back everything up with an extensive bibliography that points to litterally thousands of reports from scientific journals that have been either ignored or forgotten over time. I can't imagine the amount of work and time that must have gone into finding, cross-referencing, and organizing all of these documents. But the authors did it and have pulled everything together in a easy to read and understand chronology of discovery.

Again, I found it an amazing, eye-opening book. Those who don't like it must either don't like to read or hold to very conservative views that don't permit an open-minded view of new ideas. And the ideas presented in this book aren't new. Interestingly enough, even the famous Louis, Mary and Richard Leaky, along with other pre-eminate paleoarcheologists, believe that the evolutionary tree so often taught to us is a lot of complete nonsense.

Read the book, cover to cover with an open mind, and decide for yourself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pushing back the Timeline 14 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
When I was at college in the 1970s, we undergraduate anthro majors would kick around the currently known "facts" we were being taught. Not having fully absorbed the approved dogma, we all came to the same conclusion -- the timeline of human development is too compressed. It does not allow enough time for the physical and social changes that had to occur for humans to develop from "proto-ape" to modern man. We felt that a 2 million mark was the absolute minimum required, and would have prefered 10 million, but even we weren't that daring. Today, I see news articles about discoveries that push the approved timeline further and further back. By reviewing evidence that has been labeled anomalous, Cremo and Thompson provide future researchers with the thought-provoking material that will lead to a better understanding of man's development. Human beings have been human --and little changed -- for a very long time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book. 23 juillet 2008
Par Stuart Bentley - Publié sur
If you're only interested in the politically correct version of human history, don't read this book. If, on the other hand, you are willing to explore evidence that contradicts the current history books, read on. The research done in this book is extremely comprehensive and hard to refute. The one-star reviews for this book don't get the big picture, and try to point out embellishments within the material that make it sound fishy, when it's really not. It's just their attempt to try and refute the real evidence which contradicts established canon. The current scientific viewpoint concerning the origins of human history has turned into a dogma, resembling that of the Inquisition, where any attempt to bring up an alternative viewpoint to history is met with a venomous assault. Scientists generally find what they are looking for, which only reinforces their current theories, and they tend to ignore evidence that doesn't fit into their belief systems. This is essentially what this book is all about.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Comprehensive and Balanced 12 janvier 2011
Par R. J. Luedke - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I purchased this book after seeing one of the authors quoted on a series of specials on the National Geographic Channel, dealing with the evidence that modern man was living on this planet perhaps a million years earlier than is thought on mainstream archeology.

As someone who loves both archeology and exploration of the roots of our planet and man's existence on it, I was facinated by the subject and had to have this book. But to my amazement, this volume is the closest thing to a text book I've read in almost 30 years. It is so comprehesive on presenting all aspects (including both sides of this argument) of this topic, that I may very well be pouring through this volume for months.

From the TV specials, I half expected to get a kind of pop-culture sensational approach within these pages, but was pleasently surprised by the high standards the authors set in presenting their case in a very scientific manner while continually balancing it with the skeptics viewpoint.

Robert Luedke is the author/illustrator of the Eye Witness graphic novel series, which features forensic archeologist Dr. Terry Harper (the Bone Man).
