The article was taken offline immediately after the show, and Michael Shermer, Editor of the Skeptic Magazine for the June issue of which the article was originally intended was big enough to apologise for the ad hominem attacks and misrepresentations of my work in the article. I asked Michael to have Defant reinstate the article online for the public record, but Shermer was unwilling to do this. A cached version still remains online and it is to that cached version that link above points. My response: Completely untrue. A debate was arranged in between myself and Zahi Hawass but Hawass walked out.

Post a Comment I'll be right with you. Graphic from Kinzie, Firestone, Kennett et al. The graphic shows the vast swathe of our planet that geologists call the Younger Dryas Boundary Field. Across this huge "fingerprint" spanning North America, Central America, parts of South America and most of Europe, the tell-tale traces of multiple impacts by the fragments of a giant comet have been found. This was near the end of the last Ice Age, from which our world had been emerging into a pleasant warming phase, but the impacts set in train a kind of "nuclear winter" and plunged the planet back into a period of deep cold and darkness that lasted until around 11, years ago. It is this period of extreme cold that is referred to as the Younger Dryas after a characteristic Alpine tundra wildflower, Dryas octopetala but it is only now, with conclusive evidence of the comet impact, that we can be sure what caused it.
With over 5 million copies sold worldwide of Fingerprints of the Gods , its New York Times bestselling sequel Magicians of the Gods brings new evidence supporting Hancock's thesis that a global cataclysm wiped out a great global civilization. On the heels of the very successful hardcover edition, Hancock returns with this paperback version including three new chapters brimming with recent reporting of fresh scientific advances ranging from DNA to astrophysics that substantially support his case. Twenty years ago, Graham Hancock published Fingerprints of the Gods an astonishing, deeply controversial investigation of the mysteries of and the evidence for Earth's lost prehistoric civilization. Twenty years after this massive bestseller debuted, Hancock returns with its sequel, filled with completely new scientific and archaeological evidence. Since , a host of new proof has come to light supporting his theories through new archaeological discoveries. He travels to a wholly different set of ancient sites, including Gobekli Tepe, and brings entirely up to date and exciting material to the table for fans eagerly awaiting more evidence in favor of the prehistoric civilization. And, even more intriguing, he proposes an answer to the one question he could not answer in Fingerprints what caused this civilization to disappear. Magicians is poised perfectly for what his fans want to hear as well as for ushering in a new generation of readers.
