I read a book called "fingerprints of the God's" by Graham Hancock in the mid 90's.
It was a fascinating read and was based around a theory of an ancient civilisation that was the mother of modern civilisation... From what i remember,
Hancock claimed that it was this civ that built the pyramids some 5000-6000 years before the Egyptians and the proof of this was that the 3 main
pyramids are perfectly aligned to Orion's belt (as it would have looked 12,000 years ago)
He had lots of other theories that where all very interesting until the discovery that Mr Hancock had been a little imaginative with his "proof"
When his data of the Orion's belt/pyramids alignment was investigated by independent astronomers it was discovered that his perfect match was
anything but perfect...
And all of the theories that, i thought, Hancock had come up with turned out to be... er... borrowed from other books.
Anywho... He released another book, then another, and more and more... To me it is obvious now what is actually going on... in my humble opinion i
think that Graham Hancock is nothing but a enthusiastic amateur who has found a formula to make money and indulge his own personal
I now look at most of these "alternative science/history/religion" with a fair amount of scepticism...
Just looking at your books synopsis on amazon made me laugh out loud...

WOW... now that's some claim...
He has mixed Hollywood movies, religion, science, politics, history and conspiracy theories!
If i was you i would look very carefully at his first claim...
Thousands of years ago stargate technology of the gods was lost
I take it he has offered some form of DATA/Proof to back this claim up? If so i would investigate it very carefully... If not, well you can close the
The main problem with these type of books is that they are aimed at us, the uneducated Masses, who have an interest in a certain field but do not have
the time to go to university and study the subject (Egyptology/astrology/history etc...) And so books like this offer, not only a short cut to this
knowledge, but some unknown secret that will prove all the traditional scientist/historians wrong, making us feel very smug around the dinner party
"pass me the wine dear, Actually you will find that the ancient pyramids are over 12,000 years old and may not of been built by the Egyptians. Water
erosion on the sphnx and the alignment of Orion's belt with the pyramids proves this"
The table gasps and the host says...
"Gosh you seem to know so much..."
Only problem is that the statement is total rubbish and the only people who could prove it are less than likely to be sitting at the same table as a
bloke who reads Graham Hancock books.
As for the whole "Stargate" business... I personally think its all fantasy...
I had never heard of a "stargate" until the film in the mid 90's... Then everyones talking about it... it starts with "wouldnt it be cool if
stargates exist" then its... "maybe they did exist once, you never know" and finally... "I think stargates exists and the government is trying to
cover it up"
It's how urban myths start and in my opinion you may as well believe in the Chewbacca theory or the X-men. But... thats just my opinion, i could be
