Présentation de l'éditeur

Thought-provoking' - Daily Mail

The moon has confounded scientists for many years. It does not obey the known rules of astrophysics and there is no theory of its origin that explains the known facts - in fact it should not really be there. When researching the ancient system of geometry and measurement used in the Stone Age that they discovered in their previous book, Civilization One, the authors discovered to their great surprise that the system also works perfectly on the Moon! On further investigation, they found a consistent sequence of beautiful integer numbers when looking at every major aspect of the Moon - no pattern emerges for any other planet or moon in the solar system. For example, the Moon revolves at exactly one hundredth of the speed that the Earth turns on its axis; the Moon is exactly 400 times smaller than the Sun and is precisely 400 times closer to the Earth. They also discovered that the Moon possesses little or no heavy metals and has no core, in fact many specialists suspect that the Moon is hollow. If our Moon did not exist - nor would we. Experts are now agreed that higher life only developed on Earth because the Moon is exactly what it is and where it is!

When all of the facts are dispassionately reviewed, it becomes unreasonable to cling to the idea that the Moon is a natural object. The only question that remains is who built it?

Biographie de l'auteur

Christopher Knight has written five very successful books. His first book, The Hiram Key, co-authored with Robert Lomas, was published in 1996 and it immediately went into the UK top ten, bestseller list and remained there for 8 consecutive weeks. It has since been translated into 37 languages and sold over a million copies worldwide, becoming a bestseller in several countries. Alan Butler, a qualified engineer, but always fascinated by history made himself into something of an expert in astrology and astronomy. He has published four successful books on the Knights Templar and the Grail legend. He is also a published playwright and a very successful radio dramatist. They are co-authors of the best selling Civilization One.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 INTERESSANT 13 mai 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
J'ai trouvé le livre bien, et il ne faut pas s'arrêter au titre, qui peut faire passer ce livre dans la case, "Conspirateur et Ufologie".
Il n'en est rien, les deux Auteurs se posent les bonnes questions, vont au fond du problème, nous amène les réultats, que l'on peut trés bien verifier de notre côté, chose que je n'est pas fait personnellement, mais cela étant dit, tous point de vue est intéressant, la Science ne serait pas ce qu'elle est sans la curiosité.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sounds weird but this is a very sensible book 11 décembre 2006
Par N Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
There is some true nonsense amongst the reviews on this book. Because it sounds weird a number of people have dismissed it out of hand - without any valid reason given at all. One individual quotes the book as claiming that; "the Moon is exactly 400 times smaller than the Sun." The reviewer than announces with great pride "This is false, of course. The diameter of the moon is 400 times smaller than the diameter of the sun; but that does not mean the moon, as a whole, is 400 times smaller. The moon exists in 3 dimensions, not one. For example, the mass of the moon is about 27 million times smaller than the sun".

This is typical of the disingenuous logic of certain critics who seem not to have actually bothered to read the book at all. The book makes it very clear that this reference is about observational astronomy i.e. the size of the moon's disc seen the sky is the same size as the sun because it is 400 times smaller but 400 times closer to the earth. The book goes on to deal with the relative mass of the two bodies in some detail.

The numbers and calculations given can be easily checked by any reader with average numerical skills. This book is indeed challenging but a little bit of honesty and objectivity would go a long way here. My I recommend that future reviewers forget thier prejudices and read the book with an open mind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Too Many Coincidences To Be Chance Alone. 15 octobre 2005
Par Harvey L. Gaspar MD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Coincidence that the moon's diameter is exactly 400 times smaller than that of the Sun? Coincidence that the one second arc of the Moon's rotation is exactly 100 Megalithic Yards? Coincidence that the Moon exactly blocks the Sun's disk during a solar eclipse so that the Sun's corona can be studied? Without which much of Einstein's work would not have been confirmed. By the way the Moon is also 1/400 of the distance from the Sun which Isaac Asimov described as being 'the most unlikey of coincidences'. That the Moon is almost exactly 1/4 the size in diameter of the earth (which makes it the largest moon for a planet this size) and without its precise posisition at present, life as we know it would not have happened? Too many coincidences to accept as pure chance for me. And the fact that so many of the relationships can be expressed in whole rounded integers (within 99 % accuracy)in the metric system which we have blindly accepted as of modern origin which it apparently is not. All in all, an exciting and easy read even for this non mathmatician. The authors conclude that the moon is not a coincidence of blind nature and offer several (3) answers, which they wisely do not force upon us. The most important thing is that they do force us to think a bit more about what we have accepted blindly for centuries just because it seemed to fit the science of the times. Just as the 'flat earth' did before it.

Two criticisms: 1. The book cover, and several areas in the book state that the Moon is 1/400 the size of the moon. This should have read as the 'diameter' of the moon's disk and the Sun's disk for clarity. 2. Page 41 last paragraph states that the Moon's circumference in Megalithic Yards was divided INTO the total of seconds of arc in the earths orbit. It should have read BY the total of seconds of arc as correctly reflected by the answer given. The math is correct and simple and hard to refute.
And by the way, none of these or similar coincidences are found with the rest of the planets or moons in our solar system. Another coincidence?

Perhaps our scientific community should be willing to look a little closer to home for some of their answers as to the origin of our planet and solar system and in particular to the source of our miraculous Moon.
Both thumbs way up on this one. Maybe more is coming?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 education you say? 27 avril 2006
Par Dr. French - Publié sur Amazon.com
Hey, Mr. Gillis, aka "Real Scientist": I've gone to school, done Graduate work, and have become a doctor. So along the way I have indeed taken quite a few courses on physics, astronomy and the like. I've also always been interested in space travel, astrophysics, and geology personally. The one thing I can say, unequivically, is that my "formal education" has not only not satisfactorly answered many of the big questions, but it is often in error when answering many of the small questions. Once you achieve a good grasp of the subject matter, it becomes painfully obvious that the most revered, most popular theories, are not proven in all circumstances. There has to be some revision, at the very least, which science is loath to undergo. Our moon is a good example. The mainsteam explanation of the history, geology, and physics of the moon, in my view, is far more comical and outlandish that any put forth here by Chris Knight. He may not be totally correct either, but his ideas are moving us towards a much more workable theory given the data. What I do find rather ironic of Mr. Knight's position, is that as a self proclaimed quasi-expert on the moon, he absolutely dismisses the various controversies of the Apollo missions, landings and sample collections which are so crucial in framing his controversial theory. He often takes NASA data and press releases at face value, which is a very risky practice, given NASA's track record of cover-ups, half truths, fraud, collusion, and corruption. An excellent book on these issues is, DARK MOON, which goes more in depth and is more meticulous in its research than Knight's book. Also, he chooses his final theory from three that he has "narrowed down", but once the reader has followed the author down this rabbit hole, it seems odd that he believes it much more likely we were manipulated 4.5 billion years ago by time traveling human beings from the distant future rather than by periodic intervention from other intelligent species. Why take this position? Why the aversion to the possibility of other intelligent life in the Universe? It seems rather silly given the already bizarre nature of the book's premise. Regardless, I truly wish the moon was not so bizarre, because the implications of its true history and relationship to us may be really very disturbing, Alien or not. This book is worth the read if you have a bit of courage because it will spark discussion. I give it 5 stars for this reason, not do to overall quality compared to other books within its genre.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun and sometimes insightful 18 décembre 2012
Par Harrison Koehli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Who Built the Moon? follows the authors' previous book Civilization One, which itself was a sequel of sorts to Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas's Uriel's Machine. In those two books, the authors developed the idea (successfully, in my opinion) that Europe's Neolithic civilization had devised a highly sophisticated method of spatial and temporal measurement by using a pendulum and observations of the movement of the planet Venus. (A similar method was apparently used by the Sumerians as well.) They present the continuation of their research along those lines in this volume.

Now, it has to be said: the title is pretty bad, and doesn't really do the book justice. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns off many readers from even picking up the book. The only reason I did is because I enjoyed the previous books so much. So what do they mean? Well, in the course of their research they found some facts that pretty much defy explanation; specifically, these relate to the distances, sizes, and ratios between the Earth/Moon/Sun system, using said Neolithic system of measurement. The correspondences between just two solar system bodies might conceivably be coincidence, but three kind of boggles my mind. And it's just those three (the most essential for human life); no other three show such correspondences. This doesn't leave Knight and Butler with many options. What are the chances of figuring out a system of measure that not only takes into account the size and speed of the Earth, but also the Moon, and manages to have meaningful ratios between them and the Sun, or that such a possibility even exists in the first place? Not likely, at all, leading them to conclude the Moon might have been artificially created or altered to fit the detectable pattern (not to mention allow life to develop here, but that's another story developed in the book).

The fact that the patterns are detectable leads to their hypothesis that these ratios are a kind of message in a bottle: they were meant to be discovered by whatever intelligence put them there. This idea is developed in the last chapters of the book. It's here that something I wasn't expecting appeared: the idea that DNA might follow the same principle. This is the same conclusion Bryant Shiller came to in his book Origin of Life: The 5th Option.

Who Built the Moon? (***1/2) presents some pretty fascinating information and speculation, and while it asks more questions than it answers, that's fine by me. It's a fun and easy read. That said, it still has its flaws: minor inaccuracies, lack of sources, extraneous information that the book could do without. But if you enjoy a good mystery, check it out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Makes you think.... 30 décembre 2005
Par Robeerto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Some of the information presented is irrefutable. The mathematical "coincidences" (which actually are no coincidence) make it so that natural theories of the moon's creation are very highly unlikely. Yes, they go into a sort of science fiction area when discussing theories of the "who built it", but if you focus on the data that they have come up with, there is no other conclusion than the moon was "put" there. Who did it? They don't know; I don't know; you don't know - but it's fun to think about it.
