Has discovered mankind's history prior to Sitchin's work
on 2 July 2000
Have just finished reading From the Ashes of Angels by Andrew Collins. I am the founder of a study group on ancient man and our roots and read a lot of books on the subject. Collins has broken into new territory, and discovered a civilization prior to the Mesopotamian civilizations of Sumer that Sitchen covered so well. The further one goes back, the more difficult the research must be, so Collins must be considered to be one of the premiere researchers today. This book is a must read for anyone searching for mankind's roots and to learn the truth of our history, and where man might have learned the skills and tools allowing civilization. It seems the Mesopotamians did not just pop into existence as a full fledged civilization as some historians would have us believe, but there were precusors, prior civilizations the Mesopotamians learned from. Collins calls this race the Watchers, because that what they are referred to in the Book of Enoch, and he has done an excellent job of discovering evidence that these Watchers were a highly advanced civilization long before circa 3,800 when the Mesopotamians began to rise as a civilization, and that the Watchers seemed to have been present in many areas of the globe. An absolute must read. I look forward to more work from this talented author.
