Forbidden Archeology's Impact
by Michael Cremo
"How a Controversial New Book Shocked the Scientific Community and Became an Underground Classic"
     -- from the cover.

Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson's book Forbidden Archeology, first published in 1993 (also listed in Heretics' Bookstore), presented an impressive collection of evidence showing that humans indistinguishable from those walking the Earth today existed long before conventional theory allows. This knowledge was commonplace a century ago, but has been systematically excluded from later texts and teachings, with the result that virtually the entire generation of contemporary graduates are unaware of its existence and form their perceptions accordingly.

Forbidden Archeology's Impact describes how the scientific Establishment reacted with ridicule, threats, and intimidation, including the organized lobbying of the Federal Communications Commission with demands to fine NBC for daring to air a TV documentary featuring Cremo and Thompson's work. Also contains Cremo's correspondence with scientists and others, along with his responses to the barrage of negative criticism from regular scientific journals, which they refused to publish.

"Cremo's unruffled confidence in response to the openly boorish and arrogant comments of these defunct fur-covered die-hards is a wonder to behold. His professional finesse makes me feel a little ashamed of my joy in watching this pathetic group go extinct. In truth, the supremacy and authority of the Darwinists is in trouble. This slipshod paradigm doesn't hold up to the scrutiny of those leading the emerging paradigm of mankind's genesis. Cremo is one of those leaders."
     -- From an interview with Michaael Cremo by Joan D'Arc of B.I.P.E.D., posted at www.biped.info/articles/cremo.html.

Reactions to Forbidden Archeology:

"All the reasons and evidence why modern humans are not rather recent, but most ancient."
     -- Cyprian Broodbank, in Antiquity, December, 1993

"A stunning description of some of the evidence that was once known to science, but which has disappeared from view due to the 'knowledge filter' that protects the ruling paradigm."
     -- Phillip E. Johnson, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley, author of Darwin on Trial

"One of the landmark intellectual achievements of the late 20th century. It will take more conservative scholars a long while to come to terms with the revelations it contains."
     -- Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods

"Your book is pure humbug, and does not deserve to be taken seriously by anyone but a fool."
     -- Richard Leakey, Anthropologist and Author
