Dear Richard, Thanks for this. I wasn't consulted about the title of the programme. I won't be appealing again. It's taken a year to get this far and I want to get on with my life. Allbest, Graham

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. Putting video on the site is something we are thinking very seriously of already. I have about 30 hours of underwater footage of the Japanese monuments (Yonaguni, Kerama, Aguni, Chatan)that I have shot myself over the last three years and it would make sense to try and put some of this up on the site. I also have footage of many other underwater si

Hi Margaret, You should be able to get Lords of Poverty through Amazon.com in the US -- where its still in print. UK edition has gone out of print but a new edition will be coming out next year. All the best, Graham

Dear Ryan, Thanks for this question. I'm not currently investigating Antarctica as a possible 'home' for a lost civilisation, although I remain completely open-minded about it. I feel that this is very much Rand Flem-Ath's field and he is certainly vastly more knowledgeable on the subject than I am. My own current research focusses on the subject that Laura, one of the other contributors

Dear Samuel, Thanks for noticing "Lords of Poverty". No, I won't be writing another book about foreign aid. I said all I wanted to say there. But in a sense I still am doing in my books today what I did then -- questioning a sacred cow. It's just a different sacred cow. Thanks again. All the best, Graham

Dear Debbie, Hi. Nice to hear from you. We are planning to come back to Tenerife for some more diving -- the last place Paul showed us was very interesting (large cross cut underwater in bedrock at 27 metres). But not sure when it will be. I like this idea of a Message Board "gathering". I'd like to be involved in it if there's enough interest, and maybe give a talk or something.

Dear Trisha, I like the way this Board is evolving. I think there's been some great discussions on it and I hope these continue . A lot of common sense and good advice and ideas too. I agree that it's not necessary to stay strictly within certain areas of discussion. And I definitely haven't been scared off. Best wishes, Graham

I'm sorry, but I'm just not interested enough in the Stargate Conspiracy to spend time on it. The authors are welcome to whatever views they have of me, or of anything else, but I'm not obliged to pass this bilge through my brains. A skim-read was quite enough, thank you! I'm not putting down all of P and P's work, or them as people. They've done well in the past. But anyone can write a bad

In a thread below responding to my postings "IS GARRETT FAGAN A COWARD? Mark Chan posted an interesting comment. I am re-posting that comment here, and the reply that I have just given to him in the thread itself, and would welcome any further comments from Mark or others. By the way, I greatly appreciate Mark's input on this point -- and that of others who were unhappy with my challenge

Dear Mark Chan, Thanks for this and I appreciate your point of view. However I could not stay silent after Garrett had described my life's work as "rot through and through" because of my "methods" and alleged failure to abide by his self-defined "high standards of evidence". I thought that was enough so I decided to set Garrett a test to see whether he applies

Dear Laura, Hi. Thanks for this question. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to answer it, in any form of words, without sounding like a complete pseud. How do I feel about spirituality? That it is the essence of existence, that we are essentially spiritual beings, that there is meaning and purpose to our lives. How did I come across it? I haven't yet -- at least in the sen

From the Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa : "How foolish to spend your lifetime without meaning, when a precious human body is so rare a gift... From beginningless time in the past until now, we all have taken myriads of bodily forms in our past incarnations... Nevertheless, we have seldom utilised those bodies for a worthwhile purpose. Instead we have wasted them doing meaningless

Dear Bill, I'm writing to you without referring to Sharif first. This is because I have complete trust in Sharif as my research assistant and as the moderator of this board. If he has deleted some postings of yours then I am certain that he had very good reason. There have to be some basic guidelines to running a site like this otherwise it would become a complete madhouse. And with a

Mark, Since you have appointed yourself as your brother's keeper (quite understandable under the circumstances) perhaps you would like to have a go at answering the questions posed in my posting "Is Garrett Fagan a Coward"?

IS GARRETT FAGAN A COWARD? Dear Message Board, A couple of days ago I stayed up until 4 o’clock in the morning writing a detailed reply to some of the vile slurs and accusations that have been levelled at me on this Message Board by Garrett Fagan, Assistant Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and History at Penn State University, USA.

Dear Message Board, I'm posting this just before noon on Monday 4 December. I won't be on line again until late this evening or the small hours of tomorrow morning, as I am writing "Underworld".

Dr E, You write: "I come in this week and find you have decided to start another battle over the weekend. If you have the time to restart another debate why don't you have the time to tackle the C14 issue?" Sorry, Dr E, it wasn't me who started this latest battle.

Dear Garrett, You say all my books are “rot” and “spin”, “rot throughout”, “smoke and mirrors”. This is a terrible condemnation to heap on another person’s work and I wonder what is making you tick when you say something like that. Why do you go to such lengths to smear and insult everything that I do, every aspect of me, as though I am worthless? Why do you take such obvious pleasure in a

Dear Derek, Thank you for this. It is unlikely that my books will ever recover from the Horizon mugging. I'm fully aware of the damage that has been done, believe me, and have no doubt that the rebroadcast will be clevery edited to minimise the pain to the BBC of having to acknowledge Horizon's unfairness in the original broadcast, while at the same time furtherning Horizon's objective of smea

Dear Garrett, You have several times attacked me on this message board for what you see as a covert lack of objectivity on my side and for the use of speculation. In a posting on another thread I've pasted in a section from the Library Page of this website which sets out my position on these matters. But when I look through our email debate a year ago I find that we touched on the same s

Dear Mark Grant, Thank you for this intelligent and well thought-out contribution. When I say that Garrett Fagan is a worthy opponent I do not --repeat do not! -- mean to imply that he is "worthy" because he is a professional historian.

But Garrett, My job, as I see it, is to do precisely the thing that you seem to be accusing me of. I think its my job to look for and report on anything that contradicts or undermines the orthodox picture of prehistory -- because very few people are doing this and even fewer are doing it well. That's why Oswaldo Rivera's views on a possible "older" Tiahuanaco, which otherwise have no
