You asked: "How come your link to scientology goes directly to the Scientology Website rather than to information about your lecture there? Or other independent, objective, information?" The link is in our Centres of the Unorthodox section. Scientology is a centre of the unorthodox and has challenging views on the nature of reality and the nature of the soul. But why do you think you

Just to let you know that both Malta and the Canary Islands will play a significant role in my next book Underworld (which I am writing right now). I interviewed Thor Heyerdahl in the Canaries and I believe there is an amazing story to tell about the Pyramids there. I have also made three research trips to Malta in the past year, including a lot of diving to suspected underwater structures. The

Dear Alessandro, Hi. Many thanks for your kind mail. I know Flavio Barbiero through the intermediary of Emilio Spedicato at the University of Bergamo. I have also communicated Adriano Forgione who I believe is the publisher of Hera. Is the article very long. If not too long I would be most grateful if you would do a quick translation (notes indicating the key points would be good) and post you

Hi Dr E, I didn't mention the deadline because EWS did (in his confirmation he said he would provide the appendix by the beginning of the New Year -- which happens to be the deadline.) But it's no sweat. If EWS misses this edition his appendix can can be included in a later reprint and meanwhile I will post it on this site. Happy New Year, Graham

There is a deadline for material for the April 2001 edition of Fingerprints of the Gods. That deadline is 10 January and Eyeswideshut's critical appendix on the Piri Reis Map will have to reach me by then if it is to appear in that edition. In the event that Eyeswideshut does send an appendix after 10 January it will be published on this website, but will not make it into the April edition of Fi

Interesting idea. Also in sky-ground thinking, "as above so below", it is often understood that it is the above that is perfect and the below, however hard we strive, an imperfect copy...

Thanks for this thoughtful posting. I'm sorry that I don't have time to write anything like a proper reply. The date of 10,500 BC derives solely from the Orion/Pyramids, Sphinx/Leo 'lock' at that date. It stands out as a kind of landmark and it is in an interesting date, but all interpretations of it are speculative. I'm not wedded to it and I don't set out to find it in stuff I look at. I'

Rather belatedly, but just in time to close out the millennium, here's a response to Fagan, which you're at liberty to post. With a bit of luck GF will usher in the new in characteristic high dudgeon! Happy holidays to all there! Best jaw Professor Fagan packs a quite remarkable amount of misinformation into very few sentences and is to be commended for economy if not for accuracy.

I think Robert's position on this has been the right one from the beginning. As he has urged, we should avoid jumping to any conclusions until Spence makes her position clear and puts it on the record -- which so far she has chosen not to do. It remains perfectly possible that she is the victim of misinterpretation or misunderstanding by others. We have a series of apparently bizarre anomalie

Dear Message Board, I will have to be a fairly quiet presence on the Message Board over the next several months. I'm in the thick of writing Underworld right now. It is by far the most challenging and demanding book I have ever worked on and needs massive input of my time. We're also going to be making several major filming trips during 2001, starting with India at the end of January, so am pr

I always felt that the mythology pointed more towards 10,500 BC as the end of one time and the beginning of another.On the other hand 9,600 BC is Plato's date and it is indisputable that there was massive melting of the Laurentide ice sheet at around that time. The honest answer to your question is I just don't know. I don't even know if earth-crust displacement is the mecahnism that causes th

Dear Helen, I believe Rand has an answer to the 'hot-spot' problem and the crust/mantle issue. Check out his website: www.flem-ath.com/homepage.htm. There is also a link and a description of the site on our Links page under "Centres of the Unorthodox". I think he also addresses this issue in his new book "The Atlantis Blueprint". Best wishes, Graham

Dear Dunca Hammond, Thank you for this query, and I understand why you are asking it after the way I was presented on the matter by Horizon The short clear answer is NO, I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON RAND FLEM-ATH'S ANTARCTICA THEORY! I think it is a very good theory. I presented arguments in favour of it as recently as Heaven's Mirror, and I did so also in my Horizon interviews -- what I was l

Dear Eyeswideopen? You wrote: >>Therefore we need written evidence that the Egyptians were aware of the constellation of Orion and that they were mapping this arrangement for a definable reason.

Dear Jameske, Hi. I appreciate your concerns about Angkor and the constructive way in which you voice them. Thanks for that.I don't know if I'll be able to set your mind at rest on this point. I can only tell you what I think. I have been attacked about the Draco/Angkor correlation theory since Heaven's Mirror was published. The funny thing is, I wasn't aware of any correlation when I firs

I've read Stephen Oppenheimer's book "Eden in the East". My wife Santha and I had lunch with Stephen and his wife (for which we were unforgivably late) a bit over a year ago. He seems like a nice chap, and incredibly knowledgeable on his subject. I think "Eden in the East" is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone studying the mysterious origins of civilisati

It will be published February 2002. The TV series, on Channel 4 will air at the same time. It's the fruit of four years of diving and detailed research into the end of the last Ice Age. I'm in the middle of writing it, so I won't prefigure its conclusions. All the best, Graham

1403. RE: Schock
Dear Rob, They certainly didn't point this out. And the last time I met up with Schoch, which was in Egypt in late June this year, he was horrified to hear that Horizon had said nothing about his position on the Sphinx. He even jokingly said he might complain himself. Best wishes, Graham

Dear Richard, Leo is present in the Dendera zodiac; however this doesn't necessarily prove anything about the way Old Kingdom Egyptians saw the sky because Dendera (first century BC) is a Ptolemaic temple and the priests there were very much in touch with Greek and Babylonian astronomical ideas. Robert Bauval and I do believe that the Old Kingdom Egyptians recognised Leo as a lion and equat

1406. RE: Money
Dear Andreas, I've several times been asked this before. A book that is deliberately sensationalised and falsified is not a good book and, in the long run books that are no good don't sell. I see my priority as a writer very clearly. I have to write good books (otherwise why bother?). I take this seriously.
