From Atlantis to the Sphinx bases this assertion on a true fact: that archaeologists and geologists are at odds over the age of the Sphinx. Archaeologists claim that the Sphinx dates to classical dynastic Egypt, around 2,400 b.c. But some geologists claim that it could have been built as early as 7,000 to 10,500 b.c. The geologists' claim is based on the curious fact that the erosion of the Sphinx is more characteristic of water erosion than that of wind and sand.
Starting from the assumption that there was an advanced civilization in existence much earlier than previously thought, Wilson goes on to claim that it could very well be Atlantis--not a literal island that sank, but more of a great civilization that either declined naturally or experienced a great catastrophe, passing on only a fraction of its knowledge to other peoples. From Atlantis to the Sphinx delves into what might have been a completely different knowledge system from that of modern man--one as alien to us as that of the Martians.
The book sets out to reconstruct that ancient knowledge in a fascinating exploration of the remote depths of history, a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten peoples thought, felt, and communicated with the universe.

I was really excited about gettingthis book, and would say that thefirst half held my interest. When theauthor started getting into too muchdata about early man, interest beganto wane. What I especially liked isthat he pulled together the writingsof numerous other people, summarizingthem, a handy thing to have if onedoesn't have the time to read a stackof books on the same subject.Was this review helpful?

One of my favorite books ever. I hated to put it down from the time i picked it up. Every page is packed with information that'll keep the most intellectual persons burning to look deeper into our past to know and 'understand' the way of life of past civilizations. Peace and harmony, love, groups who 'shared' one mind. How different we have grown in our selfish search for life which is now more than anything just a daily process to satisfy our physical appitites. pick up a book and critically analyze life, history, and religionand look inside yourself and see the constant degeneration of the human mind. Figure out what you must do to make the world a better place!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

AMAZING !!!!! This book will open your eyes to a whole different world. Wilson strongly puts down his point-of-view but, at the same time shows you what others say and think. He gives you a wide range of theries and deeply explains each one of them. I could not put this book down and it is one that I will read over and over. This book will really stretch your mind.
