5.0 out of 5 stars A serious book about the events of September 11, 2001., 27 Oct 2004
You cannot claim to have heard both sides of the story until you have read The New Pearl Harbour.
This is simply the most comprehensive and authoritative source available of any kind. It provides a complete review of all the most important and reliable evidence for and against the official version of events, and covers all of the most important questions. It is 100% guaranteed to leave you in no doubt whatsoever that there are genuine and fundamental problems with the official account of 9/11.
If you sincerely care about what happened that day, or truly wish to prevent it from happening again, I strongly recommend this book to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four amazing early Christian Gnostic texts from Nag Hamadi, 17 April 2003
Ancient Gnostic texts have revealed a long-forgotten type of relationship with between humanity and the divine, and a surprisingly unique perception of the divinity in these circles.
This book presents the latest translations of four texts from the Nag Hammadi library of Gnostic texts. The four texts chosen are classic Gnostic scriptures of particular importance to early Christianity. They are, "The Secret Book of James" (written by Jesus' brother), "The Gospel of Thomas" (the most prominent classic of Gnostic Christian spirituality, by Jesus' twin, Judas Thomas), "The Book of Thomas", and "The Secret Book of John" (by Jesus' disciple, John the fisherman).
Amazingly, each of these four authentic texts are specifically identified by the mysterious ancient authors, in the first verses, as containing secret information from Jesus Christ himself! These texts in particular make an essential contribution to our understanding of gnosticism and its role in early stages of the development of Christianity, seeming to shed welcome new light on some previously uncertain aspects of Christianity.
We should be extremely grateful for the opportunity to read these fascinating documents, which were until recently all but lost forever. The Gnostic movement was systematically oppressed, and its legacy systematically destroyed, long ago by its powerful opponents. The Gnostics were triumphant in this epic story, because, in their wisdom, they deliberately sealed away their sacred knowledge to be re-discovered at a time in the distant future such as this when they would be respected and appreciated. The Nag Hammadi library comprises 52 documents in 13 books, most of which were entirely unknown until the Nag Hammadi artefacts were discovered.
In this book an informative introduction, including the remarkable story behind the texts, prepares a clear passage for the reader's journey into this repository of ancient wisdom. The notes at the end of the book provide a concise commentary, with useful explanation and reference to other scriptures including the Bible, to complete the reader's learning experience. The relatively thin size of this volume makes it highly accessible - most people could probably read the whole book in a single weekend!
If you have the slightest interest in history or religion - especially Gnosticism or Christianity, then you will certainly enjoy this book.
The texts in this book really are an amazing and important part of human history, and everyone should at least have a look at them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating new insight into the history of the Freemasons, 17 April 2003
This is one of the great corner-stone books of the popular history/religion genre.
The Hiram Key combines an interesting review of the history with some compelling theories, fascinating new ideas, and informed speculation.
The book is essentially a review of the mysterious history of Freemasonry in the light of information from ancient Egypt and Christian scripture. A revised version of historical events is proposed, and some intriguing solutions offered to some unanswered questions.
The authors argue their points so confidently that the less sceptical reader might be convinced by everything they read. The purpose of this text is to present a new theory, rather than consider the opposing arguments. The reader should explore other sources for additional evidence to balance the author's arguments.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in secret societies, history, or religion - especially the Masons, ancient Egypt, Christianity, and the Fnights Templar.
You'll enjoy reading this fascinating book and perhaps learn a little bit of history too.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS CHRIST?, 17 April 2003
This is primarily a book about Jesus, the development of Christianity, and the origins of certain heresies and secret or occult traditions. The authors share some interesting theories concerning Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and John the Baptist, supporting their ideas with some thought-provoking evidence from a wide range of sources. Special attention is afforded to the beliefs and traditions of certain well-known secret societies and religious sects.
The first half of the book is less compelling than the second, and deals with a few of the more curious historical characters, myths and legends that are often associated with these topics, and the authors offer a few novel insights. It is worthwhile persevering until the second half of the book, which presents some very interesting theories and is rich in intriguing scraps of information, scriptural contradictions, conspiracy theory, and unsolved mysteries.
Despite the title, the main focus of the book is not the Templars. However, anyone with an interest in the Templars, the history of the crusades, or the occult, should appreciate that experts continue to debate whether or not the alleged Templar heresy was genuine; where the heretical ideas originated and how they might have fitted in with the pursuits of a medieval Christian monastic military order. Some light is shed on these questions in this text, although the authors inexplicably seem to avoid actually stating some of the connections that they appear to be alluding to...
This book is easy to follow, informal and sometimes entertaining, packed with interesting information and ideas, and I would suggest it to any reader who would like to read around the subjects discussed.

4.0 out of 5 stars NEW WORLD ORDER: GLOBALISATION AND MUSLIM END-TIMES PROPHECY, 17 April 2003
This book is a serious and informative report on what many believe is a sinister conspiracy to establish control over the world's population. The conspiracy is illuminated here with some compelling evidence, and explained in straightforward terms, through which what is really happening in the world today seems suddenly very clear.
"The more you embody the illusory ideal of the perfect
consumer-producer as depicted in the media... the greater
is your reputation for success in the consumer-producer
game."
The word "Dajjal" is meaningless to most people outside the Muslim or Arab community, but this work deals with changes and events on a global scale which are currently familiar to everyone. "Dajjal" can be understood as synonymous with "Nuvus Ordo Seclorum" - the New Order of the Ages.
Not every reader will be interested in reading the enthusiastic recommendations of Islam, as an alternative to the Dajjal lifestyle, which are offered at regular intervals in the text. All who read this book will be enthralled by the striking comparisons drawn between the direction of modern international affairs and the ancient Muslim prophecy of the end of the world. Present-day observations clearly resemble very specific signs, which Muslims believe will immediately precede and forewarn the arrival of the anti-Christ and the advent of Judgement Day.
This is essential reading for anyone concerned about the important contemporary issues of globalisation and capitalism, and the book should not be overlooked by readers interested in the New World Order conspiracy theory or end-times prophecies.

Written by a respected Muslim author, "Dajjal, the antichrist" is a new and revised edition of his earlier book "Dajjal, the king who has no clothes". The word "Dajjal" is meaningless to most people outside the Muslim or Arab community, but this work deals with changes and events on a global scale which are currently familiar to everyone. "Dajjal" can be understood as synonymous with "Nuvus Ordo Seclorum" - the New Order of the Ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars FASCINATING EVIDENCE OF ANCIENT WISDOM SECRETLY PRESERVED, 28 Feb 2002
Through their insider's view of Freemasonry, and several years of research, the authors analyse ancient traditions in order to expose fascinating novel insights into key stages in human history. The topics presented are thoroughly researched, and the arguments are objective, logical, structured, clearly presented and easy to follow. There is an intelligent balance of detail and relevance in the information presented.
Substantial scientific data are cited to support the case that the biblical flood was an authentic historical event, with a clearly identified cause dated to the relevant period, and global cataclysmic effects that can still readily be seen today. An impressive ancient understanding of geometry, astronomy, navigation, the measurement of time, and other sciences, is revealed in the legacy of our distant ancestors. Persuasive documentary and archaeological proof is presented, together with interesting anecdotal evidence, to suggest how pre-historic wisdom was acquired and carefully handed down by secret organisations. An intriguing series of events are described, from the knowledge taught to Enoch by the angel Uriel, through the construction of megalithic monuments, to the creation and shaping of nations and religions, and the formation of modern secret societies - even the mysterious agenda of the New World Order. The book culminates in some astonishing observations on the influence of ancient traditions on today's modern civilisation. Royal and aristocratic bloodlines are traced back to high-priests from the ancient middle-east. Their secret knowledge is guarded by an elite Masonic brotherhood, organised by some of the world's most influential people. It seems that a sacred ideology - established in a legendary ancient era when gods lived on Earth among men - may be about to return to govern the world.
Such an intriguing and though-provoking text will enrich and broaden the outlook of anyone interested in reading about popular topics relevant to history, religion, conspiracy theory, or secret societies.

4.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC EXTRATERRESTRIAL FICTION BASED ON HISTORICAL FACTS, 27 Feb 2002
The reader will be aware that "The Book of Enki" is a fictional ancient Sumerian text and no such artefact has been unearthed by any archaeological exploration.
In this work the author has skilfully crafted an imaginary ancient record based on available evidence, and the result is as convincing as we could hope in view of his distinguished experience in the study and interpretation of ancient writings. The theme of this ancient fantasy is an autobiographical account by the Sumerian deity, Enki, in which the enthralling role of the gods in early human history is dramatically portrayed. The sequence of events is generally in accordance with the authentic historical record, and entirely consistent with the author's beliefs. The story is easy to follow, accessible and captivating.
The scholarly reader will be disappointed by the absolute absence of any references to support the facts. It is impossible to discriminate between the historical facts in this book and the author's own interpretation, dramatisation or embellishment.
I recommend referring to previous books by this author, where the established facts presented and referenced to support the discussion are conclusive in demonstrating the interventionist viewpoint. In addition, even the less certain interpretations proposed by the author, together with his own ideas and theories, are both fascinating and entertaining to read alongside the more serious arguments in his prior work.
If you are interested in extraterrestrial intervention theory or alien research, ancient history or the history of human civilisation, and if you like to read fiction - especially science fiction - then you will definitely enjoy this book.
