I'm not prepared to write off Graham Hancock just yet. But I have written off nearly all others ( still holding on to Sitchen as well ), but with nearly 100% accuracy, Marduk and some others have destroyed those theories. Believe me, with all due respect to ( Marduk and those others ) I wait with baited breath for someone to come here and turn their world on its head. But it just never happens.
The Popol Vuh is accepted by scholars as a great reservoir of uncontaminated, pre-Colombian tradition.6 It is therefore puzzling to find such similarities between these traditions and those recorded in the Genesis story. Moreover, like so many of the other Old World/New World links we have identified, the character of the similarities is not suggestive of any kind of direct influence of one region on the other but of two different interpretations of the same set of events
Who knows? Maybe one day I'll be the guy that blows the lid off the 'truth', lol. Until then, please keep threads like this one coming.

Have you looked in the old threads for Marduk's posts?
Guy's been around here forever, and he's a real bulldog - I mean that in the best way.
You read enough of his posts over the last decade (seems like) and you'll give up on Hancock and Sitchin as well.

So finally we can put the pseudo history to bed here. Not survivors from Atlantis, not indigenous and not Alien.
The latest research into Irish DNA has confirmed that the early inhabitants of Ireland were not directly descended from the Keltoi of central Europe. In fact the closest genetic relatives of the Irish in Europe are to be found in the north of Spain in the region known as the Basque Country."
