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
