Overview

They appear in the first pages of the Bible, sons of God who coupled with mere mortals before and after the Flood. They are the fallen angels and their children--the Nephilim--who are also the true builders of the pyramids and other great monuments of ancient history.
The Truth Behind Myth

In The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse, author Patrick Heron examines ancient texts from Genesis to the Book of Enoch to Revelations to once and for all establish the true identity of this mysterious, lost race of giant beings. Are they angels? Genetic monsters? Are they characters of fable and myth? Are they still among us? Within these pages the answers are finally revealed.

Solving The Riddle Of The Pyramids

The identity of the Nephilim firmly in hand, Patrick Heron takes his research deeper, using science and an examination of age-old prophecies to discover the true meaning of the pyramids. His astonishing findings address the importance of the pyramid shape and its diabolical aim to supplant the City of God. And last but not least, once the riddle of the pyramids is solved, its significance in helping to navigate the coming Apocalypse is fully illuminated.

Patrick Heron was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1952, and has a B.S. and M.A. in Business Studies from Trinity College, Dublin. At the age of 24, he began his Christian walk following an epiphany he experienced while reading the Bible. In 1997, having recently become interested in Bible prophecy concerning the "end times," Patrick published his best-selling book Apocalypse Soon. He currently resides in Dublin with his family and is not associated with any particular church or denomination.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The title doesn't roll off your lips smoothly, but The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse nevertheless has become a word-of-mouth hit. Originally self-published, the title has drawn widespread attention on the Internet, attracting readers with its contention that a race of giants once walked the earth. Its thesis about superhuman pyramid builders will pique the imaginations of believers in UFOs, students of the Old Testament and the Apocalypse, and those interested in heterodox history.

    Extremely Weak Argument and Fatally Flawed Research

    I strongly disagree with the positive reviews left by other readers concerning the previous edition of this book (published in 2005 by Xulon Press). My review is also based upon that edition. However, I highly doubt that the flaws I am pointing out will have been corrected for this new edition. Therefore, I wish to warn others about the shoddy research that Heron presents for his argument. If someone has read the current edition of the book and finds that these mistakes have been corrected, then please let me know and I will adjust my review accordingly. To begin, I would like to point out that some of Heron's supposed 'facts' about the Great Pyramid of Giza are incorrect. This is further compounded because he uses these details at the beginning of his book to build up his grand theory that the pyramid (and all ancient pyramids for that matter) are diabolical deceptions created by Satan to mimic the Holy City of God. For instance, Heron uses outdated information from Clarence Larkin as his source that the Great Pyramid consisted over over 2.3 million blocks weighing an average of 2.5 tons apiece. However, more recent quarry evidence suggests that perhaps only 1.3 million blocks were used or even less (some estimate only 750,000) weighing an average of 1.6 tons. Another grievous error is that Heron states matter-of-factly that the 'Hebrew cubit' measures 25.025 inches (again, based upon Larkin's data, which was, unsurprisingly, based upon the flawed research of others). However, there's no such thing as the 25.025 inch Hebrew cubit. Any reputable source will tell you that that measurement of a cubit used by the Hebrews varied between approximately 17.49 inches and 20.67 inches. Additionally, since we are talking about an Egyptian pyramid, we should be dealing with Egyptian cubits (the royal cubit was approx. 20.61 inches) -- not Hebrew cubits. Heron then goes on to use this so-called 25.025 inch 'Hebrew cubit' as the base unit of measure to reveal that the length of each side of the pyramid's base equals 365.2422 cubits. He argues that this demonstrates that the Great Pyramid had the number of days in the solar calendar built into its design. This might sound impressive but it's flat wrong if you do any real calculations based upon measurements by credentialed Egyptologists. He's only doing it to make his data look more impressive. Taking it another step further, Heron tells us that these measurements of the Great Pyramid can be used to successfully 'square the circle' -- and he even provides the equations to demonstrate it. First, he shows how the pyramid incorporates an approximation of the value for Pi (3.14159 -- note: Heron's version is rounded to 3.1416) Then, he does some more fancy math to make it seem as though the perimeter of the pyramid's base equals the diameter of a circle that is twice the height of the pyramid. Here are the exact equations provided by Heron: 1) 365.242 x 4 = 14609.68 and 2) 232.52 x 2 x 3.1416 = 14609.68 But there are some BIG problems with the equations that Heron has given to us. First, he is sloppy and has misplaced the decimal point TWICE. If you actually care to check the calculation, you will find that the first answer should be 1460.968. The second equation actually results in a more precise value of 1460.9696. Heron has therefore rounded the six up (but to a value of 8 instead of 7!!!) to make it appear as if the final answers match precisely. But he makes it even worse because that's not the only place where he rounded. Recall that I said he rounded the value for Pi up to 3.1416 (instead of the familiar 3.14159). Heron purposely rounded this value UP because the normal value would make the result for his second equation come out to 1460.965. But since he wants to have this answer 'match' his first equation, he needs an excuse to round the value up -- and he gets it by using the rounded value of Pi. I know that this might sound like I am being too critical of

    Beyond Excellent

    Outstanding - a must read for everybody. I could not put this book down and that very seldom happens. This book will answer a lot of your questions in the world today. The last review by Craig Hines is a waste of text. He gets involved with minutia and fails to see the bigger and more important picture. You will not be disappointed with this read and I can't wait to read his other book.

    Compelling. Foreboding. Extraordinary in implication

    So compelling - and foreboding, are the conclusions reached by Patrick Heron in The Nephilim and The Pyramid of the Apocalypse, that the writing of a 'review' is minimalist. The implications of Dr. Heron's research are beyond the realm of 'recommended' reading and should be mandatory. These conclusions reach the high ground of the convergence of archaeological, historical and theological conjecture. Quite unexpectedly, The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse introduces a new level in the apologetics genre of Judeo Christian academics. The subject itself is mystical and universally appealing but the significance of the Pyramid's message is strikingly prescient and more relevant today than possibly any other time since its initial construction. Dr. Heron's research is excellent his documentation, thorough and his presentation is well ordered, comprehensive and extraordinary in scope and consequence. While conservative Biblical perspective is often dismissed as lacking academic depth and scientific scholarship, the technologies of 21st century physics and microbiology are revealing startling parallels which are carefully organized and skillfully introduced and developed by Dr. Heron. Those who appreciate the elegance, precision and order of our universe recognize that no event is beyond coincidence and will find it providential that Dr. Heron has been given the insight, direction and ability to sift the sands deposited milennia ago and deliver their message today. These findings are a somber warning to a faltering generation. They speak of unseen schemes and forces that may soon be revealed. But these findings have also been given to one who can offer both the explanation and the solution for the darkness tucked within - and they have been wrapped with the warmth and comfort of a lilt which can only be delivered by the heart and passion of an Irishman. The detractors? They are what they are and they always have been. We make our choices - but Patrick Heron has made the message clear - and they have now heard.

    Interesting theory.

    Very good hypothesis, it gets your attention an almost reads like science fiction but so does the book of Revalation.

    The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse

    This book was very unique and interesting. I was looking for information on the Nephilim and their orgins and history and I got it, plus a lot more. I think this book is written very well and is very informative. Wheather or not you beleive in Nephilim, The Book of Revelations or The Book of Enoch is not the point. This book gives good information and makes you think. I reccommend this book for anyone interested in learning about any of the above.

    Thought Provoking and Insightful Work

    I enjoyed this book very much. As a long time bible student, I have often questioned the ancient mysteries and their origin. My attention was peaked and I could not put the book down. It was an excellent read and I enjoyed the author's sense of humor. I have bought several copies to give to friends and I recommend this book to anyone who ever wondered how the pyramids were built and why God had to do what he did in the Old Testament. I have read all of Graham Hancock's and Robert Bauval's books and this book provided a great deal of additional insight to the ancient mysteries as well. I look forward to getting his next book Apocolypse Soon.
