The book is more than pages long. Cremo and Richard L. His book Human Devolutionlike Forbidden Archeologyclaims that man has existed for millions of years, attempts to prove this by citing, as Meera Nanda puts it, “every possible research into the paranormal ever conducted anywhere to ‘prove’ the truth of holist Vedic cosmology which proposes the presence of a spiritual element in all matter which takes different forms, thereby explaining the theory of ‘devolution’.

Books by Michael A. His idea that there is some massive cover-up to keep the idea that humans have been on the earth for millions of years is ridiculous. Cremo’s central claim in Forbidden Archeology is that humans have lived on Earth for tens to hundreds of millions of years, and that the scientific establishment has suppressed the fossil evidence of extreme human antiquity. Jan 17, Kelli George rated it it was amazing. Scholars of the mainstream archaeological and paleoanthropological communities have described his work as pse Hindu creationist whose work argues that humans have lived on the earth for billions of years.

A bible for the alternative history buffs, and a challenge to the scientific establishment. Cremo was born in Schenectady, New York. I don’t believe Cremo’s arguments wholesale. We conclude that the total evidence Want to Read saving….

Had I not read this book, I would have continued regurgitating the same nonsense I was taught in my college level anthropology class, for lack of having any better information to process and share. But starting from about the s, paleoanthropologists turned to the view that human beings first evolved in the next era, the Pleistocene 2.

This is a horrible book. Listen to both sides of the discussion.

Michael Cremo – Wikipedia

Archeologists, scientists, amateur cremmo and historians. The proof is provided in great abundance, and has rattled the cages of the worlds religions, political structure, and education institutions.

In distinction to the usual brand of such writing, the authors use original sources and the book is well written. This book is shyt. This archaeoloy contains numerous examples of disregarded evidence just because it did not fit into the preconcieved notions of how things progressed, illustrating how anthropology and archaeology are not ‘sciences’ if one repeatedly disregards evidence in favor of sticking with hypothesis that have already been established – and in many cases, without concrete evidence to begin with.

Chambers Dictionary of the Unexplained. Excellent book for anyone interested in anthropology, forbidxen, human origins. Other reviewers also wrote of the book as being doctrinally motivated. One day he made a comment about the “mongoloid” heritage of the Finnish people and explained that it was likely due to the fact that the Finns were an isolated direct ancestor of “homo erectus” and not quite “homo sapiens sapiens”. Just archaeoloyy, what you won’t be taught at school.

Nonetheless, I suspect that creationism is at the root of the authors’ argument, albeit of a sort not commonly seen before. That’s the same tabloid you see in the supermarket aisle with headlines about aliens and Bat Boy. L’Homo Sapiens ha convissuto per milioni di anni con quelli che la maggior parte degli studiosi del settore ritengono i suoi antenati Australopithecus, Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus: Mar 08, Jeffrey Petit-bois rated it really liked it.

So far I find the book convincing mostly because of the copious cases that the author references in the text. He also fails to connote the “principal of association”. Groves also states that their discussion of radiometric dating fails to take account of the ongoing refinement of these methods, and the resulting fact that later results are more reliable than earlier ones. Anyone who disagrees with this book and dismisses it has not even read it!!!

But, Feder says, “When you attempt to deconstruct a well-accepted paradigm, it is reasonable to expect that a new paradigm be suggested in its place.

Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race

He clearly has a religious motivation, which he acknowledges He favors a Vedic history but he keeps his religious biases out of the overt discussion in this book, unlike the works of say, creationists. My interest in human origins was piqued at this point as I was confident that I was not being provided with objective and unfiltered information.

A super ancient beautiful vase deep down in the strata, from a time long before the existence of homo erectus. For example, the Calaveras skull, alleged to be hundreds of thousands of years old, was dated to BP by radiocarbon dating methods Taylor et al I found it fascinating as I sat in class that this man was insinuating that I, as a Finn, was barely “human” enough to have earned the right to have fire and primitive tools, yet there I was in college completely integrated with the rest of the “homo sapiens sapiens”.

I like strange books, what can I say? Sep 23, Dennis rated it it was ok Shelves:
