Overview

This ground-breaking and provocative book presents new and astonishing interpretations of ancient history, mythology and world religions that will call many established beliefs into question. In Gateway of the Gods, author Craig Hines invites readers to reconsider preconceived notions concerning Biblical theology in light of recent scientific discoveries and inquiries concerning the nature of the universe. This fascinating exploration reveals a number of ideas that have been suppressed and obscured behind layers of symbolism and misguided propaganda for thousands of years... until now. Why is it that so many world cultures share details of an event when fallen angels descended upon the earth and fathered hybrid offspring called the Nephilim? Is it possible that these beings used "gateway" technology housed within pyramids and holy temples to travel between the heavenly and earthly realms? Do the latest advances in theoretical physics lend credibility to the idea that otherworldly beings might reside in dimensions parallel to our own? Do the recorded voices of the "dead," known as Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), indicate that we may be able to communicate with these other realms? Was a secret message embedded within ancient texts that could only be revealed after we have attained the knowledge and technology necessary to understand it? Does this message offer a solution to the approaching environmental disaster that scientists warn will be more devastating to human civilization than any others in recorded history? Drawing from a variety of historical sources and years of meticulous research, the author weaves together a compelling argument involving a range of seemingly disparate topics that when considered together, formulate a radically new narrative concerning the history and destiny of the human race.

Meet the Author

Craig Hines is a multimedia artist with nearly two decades of experience in the fields of computer graphics, video production, and website design. His interest in computers began at an early age, and has only been rivaled by his fascination with ancient civilizations, paranormal phenomena, science, and technology. His focused research on what would later become Gateway of the Gods began in 1999, and continues through today. Hines believes that his training in multimedia, coupled with his knowledge of the paranormal, has given him a unique point of view, whereby he examines how to make the fantastic real and accessible.

Hines hopes that his research breathes fresh perspective into the field, and that his methods garner the mainstream respect that has eluded other authors. He encourages discussion of the facts, not agendas, both within the scientific and historical communities, and in the population at large. "Finding the truth of the world around us," Hines states, "will depend upon our ability to be honest and open to fantastic possibilities, yet discerning enough to not blindly accept the fantastic as the only plausible explanation."

    SQUARE THE CIRCLE

    Using science, technology and a little bit of logic, historical myths and religious parables are called into question. This book will make readers rethink everything they¿ve ever known. Everything from angels, demons and the paranormal will be addressed. Nothing is safe, and everything will be cast in a new light. First-time author Craig Hines challenges readers to look beyond what they have been taught and accept a new reality. His interest in using scientific methods to investigate history sheds interesting light on everything we thought we knew. Hines¿s apparent fascination with questioning history through science will appeal to readers who yearn for the truth. Readers will become entranced in the ¿new¿ history that Hines is telling. ¿ 3 Stars ¿ Reviewed by Leigh O¿Donovan, Authors on the Rise Book Reviews.

    A reviewer

    Gateway of the Gods is one of the most delightfully surprising works that I have ever read which speaks to earthly/human wonderings and spiritual ponderings. It is both well researched and well written, and the Summary at the end of each chapter is extremely helpful. Whether you are a `fledgling¿ along your path of light or have traveled quite a distance, you will find that Gateway offers richness on many levels. It filled in a lot of the blanks in my `crossword puzzle of knowledge¿ that I have been working on throughout my 61 earth years. The author¿s ability to be non-threatening with new ideas and simply ask, ¿What if there is another meaning...¿ pulled me along, and I couldn¿t put the book down. Granted, some of the ideas are beyond my scope of knowledge and understanding right now, but isn¿t that why we read? After reading Gateway of the Gods · both the Bible and the Book of Enoch now have an enhanced light · Venus (the Evening Star) will never look the same to me again (even though I have to admit that I still make a wish!) and · The chapter called ¿The Gateways of the Gods¿ was breath taking o That chapter was (to me) worth the entire price of the book. There is no way for me to even begin to describe the wealth of information and new ideas in Gateway of the Gods. You need to read it. HOWEVER, the real `Hook¿ for you to buy the book is · You would never have stumbled onto it (as I did) if you weren¿t poking around trying to find so-called `hidden/forbidden¿ truth!! Now admit it! I had been searching the Internet for fallen angels Nephilim giant race after the flood Watchers and then, thankfully, Gateway of the Gods popped up. (You know: When a student is ready, a teacher (in the form of a book this time) appears!) It was money well spent. Just one question, Mr. Author: Is wine REALLY the nectar of the gods? Please say `Yes¿!!

    A Search for Explanations of Mysteries

    Craig Hines has taken on the formidable task of seeking connections between the surviving texts and artifacts of many different cultures, in search of an explanation of events and artifacts which science can't explain. This will shake up many True Believers (of whatever they choose to believe in), and opens the way for further research in many directions. This isn't a fast read, or a book that should be read casually, but one which will reward careful reading and study.
