In ‘Fingerprinting the Gods,’ Douglas Kenyon states that “(Graham) Hancock presents breakthrough evidence of a forgotten epoch in human history that preceded, by thousands of years, the presently acknowledged cradles of civilisation in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Far East. Moreover, he argues, this same lost culture was not only highly advanced but also technologically proficient, and was destroyed more than 12,000 years ago by the global cataclysm … “
He cites “Evidence of comprehensive ancient knowledge of the 25,776-year precession of the equinoxes (unmistakably encoded into ancient mythology and building sites … )“ and “Evidence that the monuments of the Giza Plateau were built in alignment with the belt of Orion at circa 10,500 BCE … “
Kenyon goes on to say “Hancock believes the entire Giza site was constructed after the crust of the earth had stabilized following a 30-degree crustal displacement that destroyed most of the high civilisation then standing.” As well, “The Giza complex was built, Hancock speculates, as part of an effort to re-map and re-orient civilisation. … The pyramids are a part of saying this is where it stopped. That is why the perfect alignment, for example, to due north, of the Great Pyramid is extremely interesting, because they obviously would have had a new north at that time.”
Here is the punch-line. “Despite a determination to stick with the hard evidence, Hancock is not uncomfortable with the knowledge that his work is serving to corroborate the claims of many intuitive and mystics. … Our whole cultural conditioning is to deny those elements of intuition and mystery in ourselves. But all the indications are that these are, in fact, vital facts in human beings, and I suspect that the civilisation that was destroyed, although technologically advanced, was much more spiritually advanced than we are today.”
This is not difficult to believe. Materiality over-rides spirituality.
