Douglas Kenyon has chosen forty-two essays from the bimonthly journal Atlantis Rising to provide readers with an overview of the positions of some of the key thinkers in todays supercharged debate over ancient mysteries and alternative history. Contributors include, among others, Robert Schoch, Rand Flem-Ath, Moira Timms, Frank Joseph, Christopher Dunn, and Will Hart, all of whom have played leading roles in challenging the entrenched scientific establishment to reexamine its assumptions about our forgotten origins and to consider the possibility of meaningful debate--whatever the consequences to the existing paradigm. Kenyon has carefully built a collection of material in support of the growing challenge to such outmoded ways of thinking as Darwinism and Creationism, with each contribution building upon the work of the other authors. In these pages the latest discoveries and ideas regarding such perennially controversial topics as Atlantis, the pyramids, and extraterrestrial influence are explored, and many provocative questions are raised. What emerges is a thoughtful case in support of a much greater antiquity for civilization, a convincing argument for the existence of advanced technologies in prehistory, and the vast yet unmistakable outline of a lost fountainhead of world culture. These alternative arguments, once marginalized, are now gaining credibility and respect. The collection also includes several articles that introduce, compare, contrast, and complement the theories of other notable authors in these fields, such as Zecharia Sitchin, Paul LaViolette, John Michell, Graham Hancock, and John Anthony West. J. DOUGLAS KENYON is the editor and publisher of Atlantis Rising. He lives in Montana.
