From Atlantis to the Sphinx

By Colin Wilson

During this compelling publication, Colin Wilson argues that hundreds of thousands of years ahead of historic Egypt and Greece held sway, there has been a good civilization whose ships traveled the realm from China to Antarctica. Their complicated wisdom of technological know-how, arithmetic, and astronomy was once handed directly to descendants who escaped to Egypt and South America.

From Atlantis to the Sphinx bases this statement on a real truth: that archaeologists and geologists are at odds over the age of the Sphinx. Archaeologists declare that the Sphinx dates to classical dynastic Egypt, round 2,400 b.c. yet a few geologists declare that it might probably were outfitted as early as 7,000 to 10,500 b.c. The geologists' declare is predicated at the curious undeniable fact that the erosion of the Sphinx is extra attribute of water erosion than that of wind and sand.

Starting from the belief that there has been a complicated civilization in life a lot prior to formerly proposal, Wilson is going directly to declare that it might probably rather well be Atlantis--not a literal island that sank, yet extra of an exceptional civilization that both declined certainly or skilled a very good disaster, passing on just a fraction of its wisdom to different peoples. From Atlantis to the Sphinx delves into what could have been a very various wisdom method from that of contemporary man--one as alien to us as that of the Martians.

The publication units out to reconstruct that historical wisdom in a desirable exploration of the distant depths of background, a ground-breaking try and know how those long-forgotten peoples notion, felt, and communicated with the universe.
