Undoubtedly Graham is an excellent researcher and gifted writer who has traveled the world, both on land and under water, to find what he calls “the Lost Civilization.” He is a scientist supreme, seeking out FACTS, artifacts, material EVIDENCE, and more. I greatly admire him and have read quite a few of his books. Fingerprints of the Gods, and his latest, Magicians of the Gods, were truly outstanding.
However, as he constantly tries to find clues to this “Lost Civilization,” I strongly
think he has MISSED the mark.
For me, Zecharia Sitchin in his 14 well researched and scholarly books provides the answer as to WHO this “Lost Civilization” was.
Sitchin also traveled the world looking for artifacts, material EVIDENCE as well as studying the world’s Sacred Scriptures (Graham does so with the Eastern Scriptures too, in Underworld)
HOWEVER, Sitchin studied the thousands of CLAY TABLETS and cylinder SEALS, all written in the cuneiform language, the first written records of our history, in the time of the SUMERIAN CIVILIZATION, along with the Babylonian, Assyrian Akkadian Civilizations, as well as others.
The Tablets contain the history of an Ancient Civilization, way before the Egyptian, Greek or Roman Civilizations.
Sitchin contends, as do many others, that this ANCIENT CIVILIZATION had “scribes” write down how they arrived, how they lived, what they created, their customs, governing structures, their political rules of succession and more importantly WHY they arrived.
I strongly think, after studying all of Sitchin’s research, that it was this pre-Sumerian Civilization that Graham has and is still looking for, his “Lost Civilization.”
And WHO are they? This is where Graham cannot go!
They were an extraterrestrial Civilization , an INTERSTELLAR RACE, that came from another planet. They had extraordinary powers and knowledge. They built the Great Egyptian Pyramids, cities like Cuzco, Machu Picchu in Peru and Teotihuacan in Mexico, and other unexplained sites around the world. They mined gold 200,000 years ago in two mile deep mines in South Africa.
They introduced and established Kingship and Pharaohship, and domestication of animals and plants. They knew about the precession of the equinoxes and all the planets in our solar system.
They were the “Giants,” (Genesis: 6:1-4) “the gods” of olden times, as portrayed in “mythology.”
And yet, Sitchin will demonstrate that they
were REAL BEINGS, with similar traits like ours, and they had a REAL HISTORY.
And that history is accurately spelled out in the hundreds of thousands of CLAY TABLETS and SEALS.
THEREFORE, I CONTEND that Graham’s “Lost Civilization” is EXACTLY the one that Sitchin has discovered. And that Sitchin has provided us with a NEW PARADIGM that will explain, better than most other theories/paradigms (Biblical Fundamentalism vs Evolution), our true planetary history. And more importantly, Sitchin will incorporate aspects of both Biblical theories, as well as Evolutionary Theories in his well-researched NEW PARADIGM.
