    This is why our understanding of the prehistoric world is simply wrong

    We are like children who insist in believing in Santa Claus instead of Saint Christopher. The myth is very compelling but useless to adults. Here in this book one of the many cracks in the historical facade we believe about prehistory is opened wide to prove that ancient man was intellignet and capabile of building precise machines to discover the nature of the solar system as well as prediction of the seasons.

    This is what makes this book such compelling reading. Let's stop telling the lie that ancient man couldn't travel across contintents and oceans. Let's stop listening to the Egyptian council of antiquities who say that ancient man picked berries in season and couldn't stack three stones on top of each other. And lets find out what happend eight to sixteen thousand years ago on this planet. Let's really find out where the megalithic measurement system came from and let's rediscover the kind of world spanning civilization that actually existed long ago.

    I am currently building into modern computers various programs that divide the circle of the sky into 360 parts. I am glad to know that the anciens knew as I do that the world is a sphere and that you can use any convenient system of numbering to determine the future time in which the year will repeat, the seasons change, storms restart and an ice-age to reappear.

    Here is the truth about the mind of ancient man, it was as capable and intricate as ours. And whereever he could grasp the details of the universe, he made a machine to work for all seasons to aid his life and protect his future.

    This book was well organized and kept me reading it late into the night for a week. My congratulations to the author for digging into this old information and raising speculation to a science.

    A wonderful insight to the pre-history of the human race.

    Uriel's Machine was an incredibly exciting look into true history. Questions that have been avoided by the scientific elite have been answered and more theories that prove thought provoking stir your mind. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. 5 stars isn't enough.
