Product Description

Product Description

Consider the possibility that the history of the human race is not as simple as what has been taught in classroom textbooks. Consider the possibility that the evolutionary scientific explanation for mankind has ignored critical facts that are buried deep within the fossils and mankind's DNA. Consider the possibility that the religious stories that have often been the core basis for mankind's understanding of where it belongs in the history of creation may actually reveal a planet occupied with tyrannical giants and an elite highly intelligent race bent on genetic mutation.

As horrifying as such possibilities are, Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men sets forth a plausible theory revealing a hidden history of mankind and a possible reason that it has remained veiled for hundreds of thousands of years. With his well-documented style and breathtaking conclusions, Dr. Joseph P. Farrell pulls back the veil and takes the reader on an odyssey behind the mysterious history and myths of the human race.

Joseph P. Farrell is a recognized scholar whose credentials include a PhD in philosophy from the University of Oxford. His literary contribution is a veritable resumé unto itself covering such fields as Nazi Germany, sacred literature, physics, finances, the Giza pyramids, and music theory. A renowned researcher with an eye to assimilate a tremendous amount of background material, Farrell is able to condense the best scholastic research in publication and draw insightful new conclusions on complex and controversial subjects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts put to good use 26 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Philosophical thinking put to good use. Not all of us can manage that unaided. A great deal of information is presented along with interesting speculation, in a way that is not a put-down. One can pick and choose through the range of themes.

Particularly useful to me were concepts regarding 'moral disconnect', and a 'believer-skeptic' dialectic that controls 'interpretative possibilities', whether occurring through technological or suggestive means, or simply implied through context.

People often have experiences they cannot explain, and no amount of effort gets those or the effects through to others, so they are left out on a limb. We do not have to believe in all of Farrell's speculations, but at least can try to understand more about our fellow humans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a look. 19 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For those of you that are new to this kind of material, then it's a must have. Firstly, Farrell is readable - a mix of the technical and formal, balanced with a clear, descriptive style. He covers a lot of ground (from Sumeria to America, the Annunaki to mitochondrial DNA....) and does so in enough depth to whet your appetite, but not so much you're left puzzling over the meanings.

For those that have read this kind of thing before (Sitchin etc.) then you may be pleasantly surprised at the range of material in here. I certainly had not come across some ideas/sections before. For example: the Sirrush. The book opens with this strange creature and it's certainly an intriguing read!

The reason I've only given it 4 stars is twofold. Firstly, some sections plant some great ideas but fail to dig deep or do anything more then scratch the surface. This is a shame but you could follow up lines of investigation with other authors/works if you felt so inclined.

The second and reason is serious. For someone as clearly intelligent and well-read as Farrell, quite why he insists on quoting from Wikipedia beats me. Even the kids I teach know not to use Wikipedia due to its unreliability and high rate of error! It doesn't just happen once - but he makes numerous references to it throughout. This is inexcusable. When you're researching and promoting 'alternative' theories, you're evidence has to be airtight. Using Wikipedia to prove his ideas undermines all the hard graft Farrell does everywhere else.

Added to this, he also spends a great deal of time quoting from Knight and Butler. This was fine until I realised these were the two authors behind the god-awful 'Who Built the Moon'. My estimation went down at this point. (You can read my review of that book to get the idea of my feelings about it!)

However, if you're prepared to dig deeper yourself and can overlook the use of Wikipedia, it's certainly worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking 18 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book once again continues on the shoulders of previous research and speculation contained within the other books of the series. To fully appreciate the information contained within this book its best to place it within the context of the previous books, you cannot start half way through and expect to understand the intricacies of the plot.

If you want a book to make you think you've come to the right place, Dr Farrell's broad knowledge and keen eye for detail give some truly astounding concepts and thought provoking ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Genes, giants, monsters... 9 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I found parts of this book interesting, I was frustrated by the lengthy quotes from other sources and felt that I would have been better off reading the books the author quoted.

3.0 out of 5 stars SLM 18 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading parts of this book, some information made me go and order the two bboks mentioned by Adrienne Mayor. Some parts are thought provoking, some made no sense, at least to me.You don't have to believe everything in these types of publications, and by the same rule you don't have to believe what science is telling you is right. After all as a schoolboy growing up in the 1960's we were told all dinosaurs were slow witted, small brained, giant lizards that had to lay around in the sun all day to warm up. How wrong can you be? although they won't admit to it.

Bryan Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford,427 discovered an amazing thing: all Europeans come from only seven different clan mothers, or The Seven Daughters of Eve as he calls them, which is the title of his fascinating book surveying his research and conclusions. Those seven different clan mothers all in turn come from one common mother, “mitochondrial Eve” as the geneticists call her, as indeed, do all humans now alive on the planet. &quote;

A sidereal day is the time it takes for one revolution of the planet, measured by observing a star returning to the same point in the heavens on two consecutive nights. This is a real revolution because it is unaffected by the secondary motion of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. This sidereal day, or rotation period, is 236 seconds shorter than a mean solar day, and over the year these lost seconds add up to exactly one extra day, giving a year of just over 366 sidereal days in terms of the Earth’s rotation about its axis. &quote;
