Forgotten Worlds: From Atlantis to the X-Woman of Siberia and the Hobbits of Flores
Explores unexplained mysteries and examines evidence of lost, ancient civilisations in Asia, Europe and the Americas Shows that Siberia and the Amazon may have been cradles of humanity before AfricaOver and over again, mainstream views of early history - which state that the first civilisations arose around 3500 BCE - are plagued by evidence of much older civilisations, evidence ranging from artifacts and inexplicable remains to pyramids and ubiquitous myths that clearly speak of great empires prior to the rise of the Sumerian city states and pharaonic Egypt. Viewing Atlantis and its many related myths as a metaphor for a long-lost global civilisation, Patrick Chouinard explores the mythological, cultural, religious and archaelogical evidence for many forgotten civilisations in Europe, Asia and the Americas. He addresses unexplained mysteries from around the world, such as Caucasian mummies found in China, the pyramids of Caral in Peru, the hobbit remains on Flores Island, the giant heads of Easter Island, the lost legacy of Lemuria, the ideology and occult mysticism behind Nazi theory and the genetically unique X-woman of Siberia. He, also, examines evidence of ancient alien visits and other supernatural phenomena in the distant past. Using recent archaeological findings, he shows that Siberia and the Amazon may have been cradles of humanity millennia before Africa. Sounding the call to continue searching ancient, remote and formerly forbidden regions for lost cultures and genetic root races, Chouinard offers a new chronology for the emergence of human life and civilisation as well as a new mechanism for how and why societies and species change over time. By finding lost peoples and their forgotten worlds, we can truly begin to understand the human race and learn from its long history.
