I wrote about this at length in Heaven's Mirror. Have a good look at what I say there and then come back to me with any further queries. Thanks, G

I have nothing against aliens, but I don't think they are necessary to explain any of the the mysteries of the past that I am presently aware of. I'm sure the universe if full of life. I just don't see any evidence that "ancient astronauts" visited planet Earth. So I regard this as an area for other people to explore if they want to, but its not for me. Yes I'm quite familiar

You wrote: Thanks for taking the time to make an almost an immediate reply to the comments I aired below. It makes me wonder why you are so quick to refute any derisory comments on here considering the 'huge' amount of effort and work you are pursuing on 'Underworld' ********* Glad to be able to accommodate you. I am enjoying this message board and have been willing to engage in debate de

I have never met Erich, although I did once talk to him on the telephone. I don't agree with his theory, but he's welcome to express it and I'm glad he got in the face of the establishment and at least stirred up people's interest in unorthodox history. All the best, Graham

I don't think that any of the theories I've presented are indisputable. I just think they are interesting. I've never insisted that anybody should agree with my claims, only that in a free and literate society I should have a right to think my own thoughts about the past and to express them freely. I cannot see why reviewing and synthesising interesting alternative views of history -- which i

You underestimate people. We can all think independently and use our intelligence to weigh up an alternative position. Obviously quite a lot of people are interested in the alternative position I have offered and I am certain that all my readers have reached their own independent and intelligent conclusions about it -- either for or against. But they wouldn't have had the opportunity to do

Two points: (1) Yes, Bauval and I have read the article in Nature. (2) Yes, it confirms our theories about the dating of the construction of the Great Pyramid to around 2450 BC. It is a common mistake amongst our critics, who have rarely if ever read our work, that we date the construction of the Giza pyramids to the epoch of 10,500 BC. This is not the case. We say that the ground-pl

Much of what I do involves a synthesis of many other people's work -- including the brilliant Velikovsky who is footnoted often in Fingerprints of the Gods and referenced in the Bibliography. Velikovsky is still the leading figure of 20th century catastrophism, but since his time the content of the debate has inevitably changed. The catastrophic consequences he documented are of incredible val

I'm extremely intersted in Baalbek but haven't been there yet. Probably will make a trip some time in the next six months in connection with "Underworld". All the best, Graham

Regarding Yonaguni, you're're not reading my work properly. Look around pages 215-216 of Heaven's Mirror.

Thanks for your contributions to this message board which are intelligent and reasonable. I have a position on "objectivity". My opinion is that the structure and intellectual framework of science and education in industrialised societies is powerfully biased against the lost civilisation hypothesis and has effectively closed people's minds to this interesting possibility. I do no

Dear Vince Please do speak to BBC people about this! I am sure there are many good and decent employees of the BBC who believe in freedom of speech and would be horrified to know the truth of what is happening. Please also email them, Vince, and let them known how you feel. I am convinced that if enough people send emails to the two senior Television officials we name on the News Desk page

I have an invitation for you. Elaborate your critique of what you regard as my errors and wrongdoings over the Piri Reis map into a well-researched, thoroughly documented piece of writing which we will then (a) publish on this website and (b)publish as an appendix to the edition of Fingerprints scheduled for April next year. I won't pay you to do this since I realise that you you are too p

Yes, you did touch a nerve. I feel it's wrong, and unkind, especially since you know nothing of me as a person, for you to impute primarily mercenary motives to me. How can you just jump to such a conclusion and damn me and my life's work out of hand in this way? Writing has been the one thing I've consistently done well since I was a small child. I write because I love writing and I choose

Dear Eyeswideshut, One of the strange things I've discovered since I made a bit of money is that some people who I don't even know hate me. Odd eh? Why should that be do you think? Why should there always be resentful individuals like you, mostly abject failures in life, who sit seething somewhere about how I'm a "multi-millionaire" and warning people never to "loose si

I hope visitors to this message board are having a good look at the thread called "Rubbish" (below, somehwere). I'm enormously grateful to Garrett Fagan for making some really stimulating input into the discussion. I'm sorry that he's decided to stop posting messages and although I know that he's extremely busy I hope that he will join us again from time to time. He is an orthodox hi

Thanks Andrew, Oli Hein was my former assitant -- up until around the end of June. I would have passed your email on to him to give me an assessment of whether what you were proposing was interesting and viable. I don't remember reading an assessment on this subject and I don't remember him passing on any images from you to me, but that doesn't mean he didn't. I've spent most of this year on i

Mark, I see that you're a professional accountant. I am not an accountant. If I was going to get into an on-line public-debate with you about accounting I think it would be fair for you to inform me, and our audience, in advance that you are a professional in the field. Otherwise you would have a hidden, unfair advantage over me. Your brother Garrett is a professional historian. He

Hi Mark, Your brother Garrett Fagan didn't get "sucked into this". He sucked himself into it. Nobody forced him to join us here but once he chose to do so (in a debate about history and evidence)I was disappointed that he did not declare at the outset that he is himself a professional historian. That's why I decided to "out" him in my posting. Originally I had asked him

Garrett, neither you, nor I have the time to get into a live debate on this site and if we do we'll both end up jobless because we won't have time to do anything else! Remember our experience of this during December and January when we exchanged more than 70 pages of private emails debating the various failings that you believe you have identified in my person and arguments? For goodness sake, we

This is a quick hello to everyone who has put up ideas on the message board. Keep them coming please. I'm touched by the many really kind things that people have said. Honestly, its nice to know that I have some friends out there. But I have to say, I'm NOT and do not want to be "the way".
