WOW! What can I say? I have been honored to have now read two amazing books, Laurence Gardner's last masterpiece "The Origin of God" and now this, "Genius of the Few" which not only supports Laurence Gardner's work but delves even deeper into our distant past and straightens out an often confusing Bible for those of us seeking answers to our beginnings. The research is impeccible, the writing is easily comprehended by the layman and the topic fascinating. I can't recommend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely important book 9 Dec. 2012
By L. Gowen - Published on Amazon.com
Because this book doesn't follow main stream thinking, it has been allowed to go out of print. The book is about the prehistory of man and the Annanuki or Watchers. However, it is now available from The Golden Age Project, which has republished it for under $40. Anyone doing research using cuniform script or research on Eden or the Giants of Old will find this a valuable resource. Highly recommended. [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books ever written! 12 Nov. 2012
By RD - Published on Amazon.com
This book details the results of an expedition in Lebanon, of a site called Kharsag. There is monumental evidence that the Hebraic religions, and the Biblical story of the Garden of Eden, all hail back to this small area where agriculture began in the Middle East over 11,000 years ago. The valley of Kharsag is the ONLY proposed location for the Garden of Eden which matches the Biblical description perfectly, and the ONLY place with written records dating back 11,000 years which clear up the history of the Hebrews quite handily. These people had a proto-Hebraic written language which they used to record a vast number of events. Read sections of the Kharsag Epic somewhere online, and read some of the interpretations. These texts are very clear and easy to translate compared to other ancient texts, because there is no kind of mythology or any such thing, just a recording of events, with descriptions of various people and groups.

Just Google this information, and look at the facts as well as the Kharsag writings

These early people had a farming community based on a hierarchy, of real people doing real jobs. However, the "lower class" worshiped the management and specialized classes of workers as Gods. The organization of this society also is the source of stories of angels, elohim, etc. For some reason this information has been glossed over for many years. There is an ancient Akkadian story that tells of those working on the "Great Watercourse" in the Garden of Eden revolting against their overseer, who in Akkadian myths is called Enlil, and out of this confrontation came the creation of a "salaried worker" for the first time.

Nobody could make this stuff up, this is the source of the Judaic religions, and this book is the only source I know of for information about this archeological find. Sadly, the Lebanese government has not declared this a protected heritage site, and it is being developed and promoted for tourism. Anyone interested in this should look into the campaign to get the original Garden of Eden (for which there is no other reasonable site) declared a heritage site.
