Michael Cremo & Richard Thompson - The hidden history of the human race
Over the past centuries researchers have found bones and artifacts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions of years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored, or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why ? Because they contradict dominant views of human origins and antiquity.
Evolutionary prejudices, deeply held by powerful groups of scientists, have acted as what Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson call a "knowledge filter." And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins.
According to the authors, we have come to accept a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect. The Hidden History of the Human Race is a call for a change in today's arbitrarily rigid mindset.
Deploying an unexpectedly great number of convincing facts, deeply illuminated with critical analysis, Cremo and Thompson challenge us to rethink our understanding of human origins, identity, and destiny.
In The Hidden History of the Human Race we accompany the authors on a fascinating intellectual expedition. We take part in the literary excavation of a vast store of hidden knowledge that adds a new dimension to our understanding of the history of our species.
This journey of exploration takes us across five continents to key archeological sites-some long forgotten, some the center of ongoing research. Along the way we encounter many famous and infamous pioneers of prehistoric research, all with secrets to share.
The Hidden History of the Human Race is bound to ignite controversy, challenging as it does one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Meticulously researched and carefully written, it takes us to a crossroads of knowledge and invites us to take a courageous first step in a new direction of truth.
MICHAEL A. CREMO is an author and researcher specializing in the history and philosophy of science. His persistent investigations during the eight years of writing The Hidden History of the Human Race documented a major scientific cover-up.
RICHARD L. THOMPSON received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Cornell University. He is the author of scientific books and articles on evolutionary biology. In 1984, he initiated the intense research effort that culminated in the publishing of this book.
