5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book, 30 May 2006
This review is from: Slave Species of God: The Story of Humankind from the Cradle of Humankind (Paperback)
Over the last fifty years of non-fiction publishing, certain books have grown from obscurity to achieve a worldwide popularity through the sheer impact, plausibility and originality of the ideas that they contain. This book is looking set to join those titles, as it challenges the beliefs about who we are and where we come from in a plausible yet compelling way.

Questioning creationism and Darwinism, whilst taking the reader on a remarkable odyssey, drawing clear and startling analogies between new discoveries in genetic engineering and information captured on ancient artifacts. Tellinger uses scientific discovery previously ignored and links biblical stories to their original forms recorded on Sumerian clay tablets while supporting this all with captivating illustrations. Within a dense yet convincing text, the reader is never lost as the sense of each chapter and theory is related to the previous, keeping the information flowing with ease and the reader constantly engaged.

The arguments are i find compelling and clearly presented in an engaging easy-to-read style, as we discover that our DNA may have been manipulated at the point of our human creation some 200,000 years ago, to provide our maker with a less intelligent, therefore more servile species.

Challenging accepted wisdom and using the most recent research as support for his theories, Michael Tellinger treads very much his own path, yet follows in the footsteps of authors like Erich Von Daniken and Graham Hancock.

Ultimately Tellinger attempts to provide clear and grounded answers as to why the chaos, in which the modern world has become enveloped, is closely related to the secrets of ancient history.

Von Daniken... :-)

That old plagiarist....
Ronald Story's 'The Space Gods Revealed' in 1976, is a page-by-page refutation of the hypotheses and "evidence" in Daniken's 'Chariots of the Gods?'.
