I thought the research and ideas were completely fancinating! It makes me want to go to South America and see all the great ruins myself. I'm completely facinated with anicent civilations. I also am one who think that Atlantis did exist. The weird thing is I bought this book for my husband for his birthday last year and ended up reading it (well I'm not all the way finished). It's weird to know that so many cultures around the world have a deluge story in there tales/myths. What did you think?

Yes, it is amazing. I think that with the previous big deluge there was more groups of people that survived than just Noag and his family. We only know their story because it is part of the Middle East/Europian culture. I think lots of other cultures not so advanced in writing at that stage - through storytelling talks about the same thing. They were just cut of from the rest of the world for a long time and by the time we found out about their story - our were already famous and accepted as truth. So although their story is most probably true, it is sort of handled as secondary evidence (old news) and never received the full attention it should have.

It is not a "story". I think it would be classified as - Conspiracy Theory - Combination of fact, fiction, conclutions, myths, history and ideas in civilations and the human race. who we are, where we come from. check out the website www.grahamhancock.com and especialy the Forum. There is some mindblowing stuff. Some sounds like pure science fiction, others just ideas and some articles pure fact. From the bible, watchers, nephilim, egypt - pyramids, south america - mayas and incas to undergroung cities. Gets the grey stuff realy cooking...
