(FOUR STARS) Vintage, Wonderful Steiger
- February 19, 2007 Reviewer:Michele B "Dreamseeker" (Olympic
Peninsula, WA) - See all my reviews. "Brad Steiger is one of a handful
of writers in this difficult field who is able to keep a clear head, tell
a great story, and inspire a person to think for him or herself. He has
elegant common sense and is a man who writes very, very, well. Many people
have borrowed his research and ideas and then written poor imitations of
the original work. This is the real thing. If you haven't read this book
yet, be sure to do so."
Worlds Before Our Own Review On Amazon
A Seminal Work Republished, May 21, 2007
By D. Allen "Wolfman" (Sparks, Nv USA)
Reading through this book, it's hard to believe that it was first published
nearly 30 years ago. The information contained within is very intriguing,
and written in a form that has seem to be lost in the last two decades,
a form which Brad has mad Brad a master in the field of research of the
unknown...straight forward research journalism. Contained within are arguments
which platform thesis of which have gained scaling reviews from academic
science...proof that takes both creation and darwinism back to square one...
that humans and advanced societies have been around far longer than any
textbooks have supposed.
"THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR BURNING"
This is the phrase that open the forward, and has been pertinent with
the treatment of this book by contemporary academia. At the time of it's
original publication, it was one of two books that gave this topic a "serious"
platform, the other being "Chariots of the Gods". The difference
between this book and the works by Erich von Danikan is that von Danikan
provided sloppy research and laughable conclusions that could be easily
refuted by any layman. Brad's research, however is rock solid, and backed
up by serious scientists. I a world where academia fights for grants, scientific
prestige, and an unwillingness to change the information contained within
textbooks, when unable to refute the evidence put forth within this book,
all that "academia" could revert to was smear techniques, or outright
denial that this book ever existed. Down through the ages, when any work
has become so revolutionary as to outright disprove all that "science"
has held as solid reality, the result has always been a call to ban or burn
such a text (and let's be thankful it's not the middle ages, where such
an author would have been burned at the stake as a heretic as well).
Contained within you will find evidence that humanity and advanced societies
have not been around for merely 40,000 years, but perhaps millions. Evidence
has been put forth that humans may have shared the earth with dinosaurs,
giants and monstrous beings written in lore and the bible have a basis in
reality, there is more than a good possibility that ancient societies knew
about flight and may have produced flying machines, produced batteries and
artificial light sources beyond torches, and we have had metal working techniques
predating Greek and Roman civilizations. All are presented with scientific
backing, and no theories of help from "little green men".
If you've ever proposed that civilization is far older than what the
mainstream scientists have decreed, this is a must read. All evidence within
is presented in a manor very difficult to refute, much of it provided with
mainstream scientific data, such as geological strata. This book will cause
you to question everything you learned in school.
