Forbidden Archeology:The Full Unabridged Edition

( 18 )

Overview

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

    Forbidden Archeology and Human Origins

    During a 1989 sabbatical leave from Niagara University, I investigated philosophical problems arising from the interface of evolution theory and religious revelation, especially respecting the historicity of human first parents as depicted in Genesis. The 1993 publication of 'Forbidden Archeology' brought my attention to concerns about the manner in which the scientific community treats anomalous evidence of earlier than Late Pleistocene anatomically modern human beings. This, combined with a few apparently well-documented examples of anomalous finds, such as Reck's skeleton, the Castenedolo skeletons, and the Laetoli footprints -- plus a plethora of lesser known and sometimes less well-documented cases -- led me to the conclusion that there exists probable cause to have rational doubt about the current theory of human evolution. Chapter fourteen of my own 'Origin of the Human Species,' (second edition: 2003) discusses at length 'Forbidden Archeology's' contention that anatomically modern humans predated hominids from which evolutionary theory claims we descended. My book demonstrates that sound natural science is entirely compatible with an authentic reading of Genesis, including Adam and Eve's reality -- and this, without recourse to young-Earth creationism. While my thesis need not rely upon 'Forbidden Archeology's' claims, still, I considered its carefully documented analysis of the paleoanthropological record sufficiently credible to devote an entire chapter to analysis of its claims. I am grateful to Michael A. Cremo for his comments and suggestions during the writing of this chapter, which I include as a possible alternative scenario for human origins - one still consistent with belief in a single pair of historical first parents for the human race. We must recall that even a single instance of an anatomically modern human being prior to the Late Pleistocene period would be catastrophic to the current human evolution theory. The telling admission made in a review by the 'Social Studies of Science' (26:1 (1996): 207) that 'much of the historical material that they (Cremo and Thompson) resurrect has not been scrutinized in such detail before' should forewarn critics to beware of a priori dismissal of 'Forbidden Archeology's' claims concerning the early presence of true humans in the fossil record. 'Forbidden Archeology' explains how practical epistemological limitations place paleoanthropology in a category far removed from experimental science conceived as easily verifiable in a laboratory and universally replicable. These epistemological limitations, combined with Cremo and Thompson's extensive documentation of what appears to be anomalous evidence of true man living earlier than the Late Pleistocene period, renders credible the contention that, even in the early years of the 21st Century, educated persons can have rational doubts about the standard human evolution scenario. Indeed, the entire process of human origins might prove to be much more mysterious than atheistic Darwinians suppose. 'Forbidden Archeology' deserves careful consideration in any serious discussion of evolution and human origins.

    Great

    I am thirteen years old and I am half-way through this book. I enjoy it immnsely, and I recommend it to anyone who loves history and is looking for facts, or rather, a theory of facts of the homosapien race and how it came to be.

    Exposing the Lie

    This author should be applauded for exposing the fradulent theory of evolution that is being crammed down our Children's throats by the God-less academics out there as the Lie that it is. Teach Creation is schools!!!!

    More underwater cities found

    This is a good start. Even if only part of the conjecture holds. As of January 2001, three have been discovered in 80-120 feet of wateron ancient river courses just off the coast of India. They date from 9500 years ago. They were flooded by the rising seas when the ice sheets melted. (Gee, the FLOOD was natural!) These cities just doesn't fit in with current archeological thought. Oh well! The Science WILL evolve to capture the facts. What other wonders will we discover if we look and think? Only creationists will remain rectocephalic.

    Outstanding, Exhaustive and Well Researched

    If the so-called anomolies were only limited to a few, then the scientific establishment might have a case, but the sheer quantity of the evidence provided here certainly brings to our awareness the fact that science, as taught to us, does not have all the answers. Anybody still saying that ALL of these anomolies are hogwash appears really stupid! Get this book! If the full version is too daunting get the condensed paperback. It is a little bit dry, but worth the effort.

    Uh,

    Forbidden Archaeology is a great catching title, but the books is repetitive and tedious. I highly respect the author and his point of view, but he as a writer, uh... The book needed graphs showing comparison and contrast; pictures of classifications, and if not available, at least drawings because words in the book per se, lack illustration. And, it is too old to argue: aren't new ideas about the field?. I hope there is a new edition with a plethora of revisions. Also, it is so sad to find out that even in the so respected scientific field such as archaeology, there is a mob and a gang of cheaters, as the author points out.

    Interesting, but technical

    This is a thorough work with many interesting points about anomalous artifacts. This isn't for people without any knowledge of science. With a general knowledge everything is fine

    Absolute idiocy

    Cremo repeats the same old worthless arguments against the theory of evolution. Why does every reputable biologist in the world, with the exception of Michael Behe, embrace Darwinian evolution if it is so obviously wrong? Creationists are motivated by religion, not science. Save your money.

    Extremely enlightening

    Tuff read, very detailed, written by a professional for professionals, extremely well researched. And documented. Makes a most compelling scientific argument for the existence of modern man anywhere from 1million to 4million years ago using designed and made stone tools and fire.
