Book Description

5 Mar 2007
Twenty-two years before Technology of the Gods... Seventeen years before Fingerprints of the Gods... Fifteen years before Forbidden Archaeology... ...there was Worlds Before Our Own, Brad Steiger's groundbreaking argument for the existence of a global prehistoric civilization. The evidence Steiger had amassed for such a claim was based primarily upon finds of "erratics" -- mysterious "man-made" artifacts found in the deepest, most primordial geological strata. In the past couple of decades the concepts first presented in Worlds Before Our Own have garnered tremendous critical and popular support. This is the book that started it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The truth IS out there! 3 Aug 2009
Before Von Daniken, before Hancock, came Steiger.
Garnering a wealth of information on OOPARTS and other archaeological anomolies, Steiger pokes mortal holes in the established historical orthodoxy's "truth" on human history.
Bless him, he gets a tad carried away towards the end of the book, but don't let this distract you from the wealth of truth that lies within the covers of these pages.
If you too feel that orthodox historians and archaeologists are off the mark and have become the new priests of a blind religion - buy this book for a glimpse of the real world.

5.0 out of 5 stars a book in a category of it's own. 30 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good book, but didn't go along with chapter dealing with a 'machine that the israelites' used to make themselves manna during their 40 years in the wilderness wanderings.To me it was bunkum. Otherwise, the book was Very good indeed.I suppose the likes of Richard Dawkins would fall from a chair with apoplexy in disgust .Everyone should read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Seminal Work Republished 21 May 2007
By D. Allen - Published on
Reading through this book, it's hard to believe that it was first published nearly 30 years ago. The information contained within is very intriguing, and written in a form that has seem to be lost in the last two decades, a form which has made Brad a master in the field of research of the unknown...straight forward research journalism. Contained within are arguments which platform thesis of which have gained scaling reviews from academic science...proof that takes both creation and darwinism back to square one... that humans and advanced societies have been around far longer than any textbooks have supposed.


This is the phrase that open the forward, and has been pertinent with the treatment of this book by contemporary academia. At the time of it's original publication, it was one of two books that gave this topic a "serious" platform, the other being "Chariots of the Gods". The difference between this book and the works by Erich von Danikan is that von Danikan provided sloppy research and laughable conclusions that could be easily refuted by any layman. Brad's research, however is rock solid, and backed up by serious scientists. In a world where academia fights for grants, scientific prestige, and an unwillingness to change the information contained within textbooks, when unable to refute the evidence put forth within this book, all that "academia" could revert to was smear techniques, or outright denial that this book ever existed. Down through the ages, when any work has become so revolutionary as to outright disprove all that "science" has held as solid reality, the result has always been a call to ban or burn such a text (and let's be thankful it's not the middle ages, where such an author would have been burned at the stake as a heretic as well).
Contained within you will find evidence that humanity and advanced societies have not been around for merely 40,000 years, but perhaps millions. Evidence has been put forth that humans may have shared the earth with dinosaurs, giants and monstrous beings written in lore and the bible have a basis in reality, there is more than a good possibility that ancient societies knew about flight and may have produced flying machines, produced batteries and artificial light sources beyond torches, and we have had metal working techniques predating Greek and Roman civilizations. All are presented with scientific backing, and no theories of help from "little green men".
If you've ever proposed that civilization is far older than what the mainstream scientists have decreed, this is a must read. All evidence within is presented in a manor very difficult to refute, much of it provided with mainstream scientific data, such as geological strata. This book will cause you to question everything you learned in school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight Forward Summany of the Facts 18 Dec 2007
By Christopher C. Colvin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book is truly a remarkable find. Presented in a clear and lucid style, Mr. Steiger presents information concerning anomalous archeological finds without the hyperbole usually associated with this type of material.

A great deal of information is provided in a compact format. The book is only a total of 224 pages long and is a reprint by Anomalist Books of the book, which was originally published over 30 years ago. It would be nice to have an update of the information provided - has any new information turned up or has anyone done first hand research of any of the sites mentioned? For example, early in the book the author mentions that concrete blocks, as well as a wall of these blocks, were found in a seam of coal in Oklahoma in 1928. Due to a tunnel collapse, this section of the mine was immediately closed thereafter. It would be interesting to follow-up on this report by first hand reporting of the site in question.

Overall, the book is worth the money and provides a very nice overview of this topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worlds Before Our Own by Brad Steiger 23 Mar 2008
By A. Dark - Published on
The mounting scientific and paleontological evidence towards an alternative to the current world view, that man evolved from apes during the last three to five million years, is skillfully and relentlessly presented by Brad Steiger in this landmark book. It is now widely accepted that the fragmented physical evidence for the establisment view would not actually fill a car boot whereas the accumulation of what are considered by science to be random anomalous finds is quickly filling a space the size of the Royal Albert Hall. Quite apart from the evidence which is being subverted from public view the tidle wave of skeletal remains, human footprints frozen in rock strata alongside those of dinosaurs, metal tools, metal jewellery and metal ornaments all discovered in strata beyond 50 million years of age, all point to human involvement in the affairs of planet Earth on a timescale which completely alters and constantly predates the established view by millions of years.
We are long overdue for a radical review of human origins and our perceptions of our place in the universe. The tipping point will come when the general public comes forward in greater numbers to question the current thesis. Anyone at all interested in human origins and the birth of civilizations would do well to get up to speed and educate themselves on the subject and what better place to start than with this excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book Before its Time 24 Jun 2009
By Stewart P. Lewis - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mr. Steiger's book, "Worlds Before Our Own" is one that you will find difficult to put down. I first learned of it while listening to a repeat of an interview conducted by Art Bell in the program "Somewhere in Time." My background is in the hard sciences and the subject matter presented in Steiger's book is 180 degrees out of phase with what I normally read. It was a fresh and much needed break from the technical documents I typically review. Here are some of the things I enjoyed about this book.

1. Numerous obscure facts/findings are presented.
2. Steiger's writing style presents the data in a manner that is easy and enjoyable to read.
3. Steiger provides plausible alternative explanations for the numerous anomalous findings that clash with traditional theories on evolution and progression of mankind.

If I was to offer some criticism it would be as follows.

1. It would be nice if the references were cited within the text with a superscript and then listed in numerical order at the end of the book.
2. The commentary at the end of the book might be organized into its own subsection/chapter.
3. Additional photographs would be nice.

I highly recommend this book to others who have interest in controversial subjects ranging from giants to advanced civilizations that predate our own. This book has heightened my interest in these subjects to the point that on my next trip to China I hope to explore the "forbidden zone" and eventually other sites such as Nan Madol.
