For your information I will be posting on this message board later today a short article that Robert Bauval has put together on the subject of CISCOP. All the best, Graham

I have received a reply from John Lynch, Creative Director of Science at the BBC to a second letter I sent him yesterday but not, as yet, any reply to my Open Letter. In the interests of completeness I now paste in below (1) the second letter that I sent to the BBC on 23 November; (2) the reply to it from John Lynch, received this morning; (3) my reply to John Lynch, sent by return.

Dear Gary, Nice to hear from you. I lived in Sunderland from the age of 12 till the age of 23. Yes I do hope to give several lectures in the north-east but this won't be until the book I'm presently working on is published. Keep watching this site and I will post details of lectures etc. You ask for a few pointers. The only good advice I can give is that if you want to be a writer then

Thanks James, I appreciate that your admonition is well meant. As you know, Robert Bauval originally brought up the CSICOP issue in relation to Ed Krupp in his article "A Parody of Science and an Intellectual Auto Da Fe" (see "BBC Horizon Scandal" on this site). Then through your posting on this message board -- thank you! -- we heard of Ken Feder's involvement with

I have today sent this letter to John Lynch, Creative Director of Science at the BBC. To John Lynch Creative Director of Science, BBC. From Graham Hancock, Thursday 23 November 2000 Dear John Lynch, Thank you for sending me the release forms that I was conned into signing by Horizon. And I mean "conned" literally.

I've visited Nan Madol several times and dived there extensively Some of my wife Santha's underwater pix of Nan Madol are up on this site in the Gallery somewhere. There certainly are bizarre structures underwater there. But other than blocks associated directly with the submarine foundations of the big prismatic- basalt structures on land, very little of absolutely certain man-made provenance ha

Thanks for this Scott. I do hope to visit Australia but probably not until "Underworld" is out in early 2002. If I do get a chance to make a trip I'll mention it in advance on this site. All the best, Graham

Thanks for this. I have not seen the show, but will try to get hold of a copy. Probably several years old. Often when I do book promotion tours I do quite a few TV interviews for various projects, some short-term, some long-term. This sounds like something built up from one of them. In general I have no major complaint over how I've been treated in the media and its not a big issue for me.

Hi there EWS. I thought we'd resolved this. You are going to write a considered in-depth critique of my treatment of the Piri Reis map and I have agreed to publish it as an appendix to a reprint edition of Fingerprints next year. This surely must be an extraordinary step for an author to take and one worth some recognition even by you. Of course your critique will also be posted on this websit

Dr Edlin, You seem from your postings to be deaf to things I tell you. For example, why do I have to keep telling you that everything Robert Bauval has had to say on The Orion Correlation is in his books and published papers and TV documentaries, and that whatever he choses to say about it in the future will also easily be found in his books and published papers. Same goes for me and what I ha

I just don't believe any more that Vyse did it.There are some gaps in some cases a couple of fingerwidths wide between the blocks in the east and west walls of the upper relieving chamber, and elsewhere if I remember rightly. Squinting along these with a good torch, and in fact television lights, it was possible to make out quarry marks (sideways-on not full on). It would have been impossible for

I think you are just ducking the moral question. You should be able to answer from the transcripts the question of whether the BBC treated my views on carbon-dating fairly in their broadcast and it shouldn't take you long. I just wish to see whether your anticipation of the "complete humiliation and rejection" of my work by Horizon on Dec 14 is any way tempered by the close look I ha

Hi Mark, The argument has always been that, if there was a displacement, then it was over by 10,500 BC. For the original work on crustal displacement, from which my report in Fingerprints is drawn, read "The Path of the Pole" ("Earth's Shifting Crust") by Charles Hapgood, "When the Sky Fell", by Rand and Rose Flem-Ath, and "The Atantis Blueprint" by R

Our theory: what happened in 10,500 BC was "the First Time". The Pharaoh's journey through the Duat was to be through the Duat of this earlier, even "mythical" time rather than through the Duat of 2500 BC. In other words we may infer the belief that the soul was able to navigate in time as well as in space... All of this is in Keeper of Genesis. I am not dealing with Ant

Dear Dr Edlin, You "look forward" to the BBC's re-screening of Horizon and their "complete humiliation and rejection" of my work. Dear Dr Conspiracy (Hi there, by the way!) I guess you also think I got what I deserve from the good old boys at the BBC and are also looking forward to them sticking it to me again? Now here's my challenge for you both. Step 1: go to &

Some religions in the modern world are already more than 4000 years old -- so this says to me that religious ideas are capable of surviving for a very long time in human culture. Why not for 8000 years? Religious ideas often express themselves through architecture and these projects are often very long-lived with older buildings being added to and restored all the time. I'm only suggesting

No, there is no contradiction. Teotihuacan was the "place where men became gods" and Giza was too. In the case of Giza this involved knowledge of and a post-mortem journey through the Duat sky region upon which the Giza necropolis is modelled. Since we have no religious texts deriving from the Teotihuacan era we cannot say how precisely they were used but the name (meaning literal

Dear Dr Edlin, One thing I'd like to clear up. That I chose to report and refer to Robert Bauval's work and his Orion correlation theory in "Fingerprints of the Gods" does not mean that I am obliged to publish between the same two covers all of Robert's evidence supporting his theory. Let me explain to you. You see, Robert wrote a well-known and widely-available book on this ve

Hi. Sorry I didn't get back to you before on this. Yes I have been to China and spent several days looking at the amazing pyramids in Xian. There are hundreds of them and you start seeing them almost as soon as you drive out of the airport. They look more like the pyramids of Teotihuacan in Mexico than they look like the Egyptian pyramids, and they are made of ramped earth. I do prett

Dear Jennifer, I am sorry but if you have sent me anything (how, through my publishers?) I either haven't received it or have forgotten receiving it. I get a fair amount of unsolicited mail and honestly, nine days out of ten I just don't have the time to read it. Some I pass on to my assistant, but he's frantically busy too. And some I mean to get round to looking at properly but never do.

Hi Oziris, Thanks for your postings. The book I'm writing now is "Underworld". It's described elswhere on this site, can't remember where now. I'm using the changes to the shape of the habitable landmasses since the end of the last Ice Age to guide a search for underwater ruins (I'm a scuba diver). Of course there's much more to it than that, but those are the bare bones. Trav

Thanks for graciously offering me the last word. My readers can evaluate my work for themselves, and judge to what extent it is "scientific" or not -- though I have never claimed to be a scientist. I've always said that I'm just a writer, and that's all I am or ever want to be. Still, I don't understand your point about the endnotes/References in my books. You seem to be saying t

Sky: I think you may be misunderstanding this thread a little. Christophe Leijnen asks me about my views on the correlation between Teotihuan and Giza. I refer him to Heaven's Mirror where I do indeed discuss a relationship between Teotihuacan and Giza. I believe they are both places -- constructed on the Hermetic "as above, so below" principle -- where initiation rituals were undert
