In this book Lloyd Pye demonstrates conclusively that the Darwinian model of macro evolution, that is, Cro-Magnon man descended from the homonids, is pure fiction. He shows that Darwin and his successors have never shown the link and have gone to incredible lengths to defend their position but are utterly incapable of admitting that their theory was unfounded. Lloyd also asserts that the Creationists, who base their claims on a literal interpretation of the Bible, don't have a case as well. Well, where did we come from? Lloyd maintains that we were genetically engineered by an extraterrestrial race, the Nefilim or Annunaki, to serve as their slaves. Lloyd's thesis is based on the work of the great Sumerian scholar, Zacariah Sitchin, whose Earth Chronicles series describes what the ancient Sumerians tell us about their origins. While I am a great admirer of Sitchin's scholarship, I believe his belief that the Nefilim were responsible for practically everything in Earth's origins is limited. There were many other players in Earth's history who had a role in man's place on this planet. Look at the Nommo from Sirius in Robert Temple's "The Sirius Mystery", the Pschats in the work of Murray Hope, the Pleiadians from numerous sources and others. I believe Lloyd is on the right track regarding man's origins but he needs to broaden his scope. Despite these differences, I recommend Lloyd's book highly as a guide to show you the grave deficiencies of the Darwinian model.
