Product Description

About the Author

Christopher Knight has written five very successful books. His first book, The Hiram Key, co-authored with Robert Lomas, was published in 1996 and it immediately went into the UK top ten, bestseller list and remained there for 8 consecutive weeks. It has since been translated into 37 languages and sold over a million copies worldwide, becoming a bestseller in several countries. Alan Butler, a qualified engineer, but always fascinated by history made himself into something of an expert in astrology and astronomy. He has published four successful books on the Knights Templar and the Grail legend. He is also a published playwright and a very successful radio dramatist. They are co-authors of the best selling Civilization One.

Firstly I'm not sure if I'm a critic or a supporter of this book. I've given it 4 stars because the actual data and numbers that are given are extremely interesting and need to be known by the world. The ratios of days, orbits and diameters, are correct, even if not worded properly: "The moon is exactly 400 times smaller than the sun" should be "the diameter of" the moon, sun etc.

There is clearly something in this that needs further research, but there are a couple of things that bother me about the book.

I personally will not come to a conclusion about what all this means until I have analyzed it far more thoroughly. I might never come to a conclusion about it ever, unless there is an actual fact that proves or disproves something.

That is my main problem with this book, the conclusions the authors come to, have no evidence to support them, its pure speculation. Don't get me wrong, the planetary mechanics and ratios are amazing, and are far too perfect to be coincidence, but that doesn't mean that people from the future did it all, which is what the authors state is their best theory. Theres just as much evidence to support that idea as there is to say the whole solar system is the poo of a giant space fish.

I recommend everyone reads this book before they come to any conclusion and once they've read it don't just settle with the authors ideas. there are more possibilities than just god, aliens or people from the future. Perhaps the solar system is a living organism or maybe theres a completely natural phenomenon where for some reason not yet known to physics, planets harmonize themselves with each other on many different levels ie size, rotation, who knows?

Sounds a bit quirky but I have to say the facts included don`t half make you think! I am a sceptical old bugger but the recurring pattern of numbers and the possibilities of hidden information is mind blowing.. A Great Read !

It's true that when reading books of this nature which question mainstream science (of which there are many now) that you mustn't get carried away with the train of though whilst leaving your analytical baggage behind. It's easy to get whipped up in the premise and accept practically everything presented in order to help support the notion that simply reading a book can turn the world on its head. But at the same time, the same can be said of mainstream education and science. What we think we know is only accurate in light of all the evidence and verifiable facts available at the time - and should the sands of evidence shift then so should the edifices that are founded on them.

So then, the book. The authors have done a good job in presenting a sound argument for there being a mathematical relationship between The Sun, Moon and Earth. As mentioned in other reviews, the relationships and their interplay between the bodies appears mind boggling. If it is true that these ratios are only present in and between Sun, Moon and Earth and no other planetary body in the solar system then it gets you pondering what the statistical chances are and how it could have occurred.

The fact that the moon is where it is with the apparent composition it has also appears, according to the authors, to confound common sense. Naturally, it's unhealthy to just accept what were told here at face value but if their assertions are accurate then science still has many questions to answer. A frequent theme in books like this is that science often feels the need to adopt a hypothesis and present it as final fact whilst still half baked. In this case, it's the 'Big Whack' theory of moon formation that gets put back under the microscope.

This is Knight and Butler's follow-up to their earlier work "Civilisation One". I got through my Kindle version in a few days - this is very interesting and controversial stuff. My logical mind tells me that scientists have a good idea how the Moon came into being - a giant interplanetary impact seems to be the prevailing view. The authors however have gathered together a number of bits of information which lead to the unbelievable scenario of the Moon being (at least partly) hollow. The impact of modules discarded by American astronauts, for example, caused the Moon to "ring" like a bell, The authors point to ancient legends and myths which allege that the "gods" brought the Moon here and placed it in orbit in such a way that the Earth tilted, the seasons were created and the development of intelligent life was made possible. This last item of course is pure speculation, and hard-nosed scientists have no doubt scoffed at the idea. But other situations exist, for example the case of the Dogon people of western Africa, whereby advanced astronomical knowledge seems to have been acquired by otherwise primitive people and handed down over many generations.

In a similar style and approach to "Civilisation One", Knight and Butler have studied the numerical and geometrical relationships between the Earth, Moon and Sun and have come up with some very startling facts - all of which could mean absolutely nothing, of course, but it's all there to stimulate the reader and provide some food for thought. They also touch on religious aspects, which weren't really my cup of tea, but of course, there is a body of "creationist" thinkers out there with whom this would strike a chord.
