A Top Read!
on 17 August 2007
Thinking that this book was going to be a heavy read I was in for a big surprise. It was like a scientific detective story that was so engaging that I read it in record time. Despite the easy reading for the layman the subject is thoroughly well researched by the 3 authors and presents a very compelling case for the proposition that the Northern Hemisphere was bombarded around 13000 years ago with catastrophic consequences. On top of meticulously detailing the many scientific finds by numerous researchers from various fields regarding the subject, the authors have interspersed stories from many native tribes and earlier civilizations that in this new light very likely are stories told by survivors of the cataclysm and passed down through oral traditions. It is hard at times not to feel a touch of the terror that our ancestors must have felt, when this happened, which historically speaking is not that long ago.
This book will without doubt cause a lot of stir in many places, and hopefully encourage more people to take an extra look and do more research. The book has definitely caused me to look at my home country with new eyes and with a keen interest to look out for signs in the countryside that confirms this theory. Like the book by Iman Wilkens "Where Troy once stood", this book has also been a great inspiration and catalyst to look at our history in a different way. And like the authors point out, the earth is currently in a very dangerous area of the galaxy where comets and other extraterrestrial objects are a lot more numerous than they have been for a long time.
This is a must read book that you will not regret having bought!
