Happy Birthday, Graham!

Our favorite author and iconoclast, Graham Hancock, turns 60 today.

His books are a remarkable, awesome and life-changing look at archeology and it's current restraints. In the majority of his books, Hancock sets out to change the norm which is the pathetic paradigm that our society as we know it is the apex of civilization as it ever was on the planet.

His latest work, Supernatural, is his best yet. This book deviates from the archaeological "norm" of his prior works and explores the Shamanic Legacies around the globe, their common elements and connections with the other worlds "within". This book is the "Gateway Drug" that can open your mind to serious new potential. We had never heard of DMT before and now we want to know everything.

1992: The Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant
1995: Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilization
1996: The Message of the Sphinx: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind. Published in the United Kingdom as Keeper of Genesis: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind
1998: The Mars Mystery: A Tale of the End of Two Worlds
1998: Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization
2001: Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest Continues (New Updated Edition
2002: Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization
2004: Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith
2005: Supernatural: Meeting with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind

Hancock's basic theory is that we are "a civilization, a species with amnesia". Here is a quote from Fingerprints of the Gods:

"..., there is a common legacy of all these world wide ancient civilizations that they do not even address. This legacy lies not in the 'modern' myth of Atlantis, but in the myths and legends of each of these civilizations which make common reference to cataclysms, especially floods, similar gods or god experiences, and precessional and other astronomically significant numbers, etc, etc. The writing, architecture, and agriculture of these ancients are by products of their development which had its roots in a lost civilization of 12,000 years ago."
