Here's the answer to the Gympie Pyramid question. Guess it was good old Rex not Tim that deserves the credit.
"Rex Gilroy himself was a poor student, a slow learner who was overlooked by the educational methods of that day, and had to teach himself. His home
is overflowing with books, thousands of them. Here he is also surrounded by his huge collection, which includes several hundred rock inscriptions of
Phoenician, Egyptian, Libyan Celtic and other ancient visitors who came to these shores thousands of years before Captain James Cook.
Here he keeps his collection of huge stone 'megatools' and other evidence of giant hominids, as well as a fossil skull collection showing the
evolution of Homo erectus into Homo sapiens in Australia long before modern humans supposedly first evolved in Africa.
His research on our pre-Aboriginal history alone has taken up the past 35 years of his researching life.
Rex met his wife Heather in 1972 and since then they have become Australia's most famous research 'team', making regular field investigations
Australia-wide, as well as in New Zealand on a variety of endeavours. They have found evidence of a surviving Little Scrub Moa colony in the North
Island and in 2004 they will search areas in the South Island for the equally supposed long 'extinct' Giant Moa. The regions where they flightless
birds are believed to survive is virtually impenetrable mountainous scrublands.
The 'father ' of Yowie research, he established the "Australian Yowie Research Centre" in 1965 and officially at his Katoomba home in the 1970's
where all manner of evidence of these relict hominids is gathered and scientifically researched. Rex Gilroy was first to realise that the Yowie, or
"hairy man" was living relict populations of Homo erectus, a tool-making, fire-making race and our immediate ancestor.
Yet, for all his 46 years of research into the Yowie mystery alone, he has had to face up to not only an often violent academic opposition, the
ridicule of ignorant journalists, but the plagiarism of jealous 'researchers' who, unlike Rex and Heather Gilroy, seek only quick fame and MONEY
using his hard-won findings for their own personal, selfish gain!
In the word of American author/publisher-researcher, David Hatcher Childress "I wouldn't want to be Rex Gilroy".
In the course of his field investigations, in July 1999 Rex Gilroy was lost in the dangerous Kanangra Boyd National park overnight, soaking wet in -3
degrees temperatures, and fighting hypothermia and hallucinations, had to battle his way up an escarpment through dense scrub, to be found the next
morning, still on his feet despite exhaustion and a dislocated right shoulder!
In 1995 Nexus published his first book "Mysterious Australia" [soon to be re-released by URU Publications]. This book continues to inspire and
encourage other future young researchers.
In 1999 the Gilroys formed URU Publications and have so far published "Pyramids in the Pacific - The Unwritten History of Australia" and "Giants
From the Dreamtime - The Yowie in Myth and Reality", with more titles on the horizon, including a monster book on unknown animals, which is seen as
the 'Bible' of Australian Cryptozoology, just as their "Giants From the Dreamtime" is hailed as the 'Bible' of Yowie research in Australia.
There have been attempts by university academics to discredit Rex Gilroy's books, even to the point of sending a delegation to the Gilroy home to ask
them to withdraw "Pyramids in the Pacific" from sale while a university historian went over the text, and who would subsequently tell them what they
had to remove and what they could retain!
The 'delegation' [which included an elderly retired politician in his nineties!] was naturally sent packing by Rex - after a lecture on free speech
and the freedom of people to make up their own minds about what they want to believe about our ancient past.
At this the former politician retorted "The public have to be told what to think sometimes!"
Back in 1965 Rex Gilroy discovered a number of mysterious altar stones and strange rock script at site on the Blue Mountains. It was the beginning of
a lifelong quest to uncover what has become the "Lost [megalithic] civilisation of Uru". After 28 years he was able to 'crack' the translation of
the mystery script [Rex is deeply involved in Epigraphy] to find that this people called themselves the Uru [a root word of 'Aryan'] and that this
the THE 'mother' civilisation, which arose here in Australia to spread out across the earth at the dawn of history.
The Gilroys, aided by a team of trustworthy field assistants, are searching the continent, turning up lengthy stone alignments, circles, temples and
other astronomical site of this advanced stone-age civilisation. "When in 1965 I realised I was the discoverer of a 'lost civilisation' I felt like
Heinrich Schliemann, who discovered the lost city of Troy in 1873.
Schliemann was rubbished by jealous university academics at the time who tried to discredit the importance of his discovery, due to his lack of
academic credentials. I soon got a taste of what Heinrich Schleimann went through, when I tried to write newspaper articles on my find in the later
part of the 1960's and early 1970's, and they were dismissed as nonsense by journalists who knew nothing about these matters anyway.
"I have made many important discoveries over the years, may with the loyal assistance of my wife Heather. Finds which would question many aspects of
our 'official' history - fossil hominid footprints, Homo erectus [mineralised] skull-types, the Gympie and Cooktown pyramids; countless rock
inscriptions left by a host of ancient maritime peoples, and all have without exception been dismissed out-of-hand and my work discredited in the
media, by a close-minded academic establishment.
Slander and ridicule are no strangers to Me", said Rex.
The Lost Civilisation of Uru is the subject of another book which the Gilroys will publish in the near future. Like everything else they produce, or
lecture on, it is regarded as "not Politically Correct"!"
