Before Atlantis

Exploring emerging and suppressed evidence from archaeology, anthropology and biology, Frank Joseph challenges conventional theories of evolution, the age of humanity, the origins of civilisation and the purpose of megaliths around the world. Further investigating the evolutionary branches of humanity, he explores the mounting biological evidence supporting the aquatic ape theory - that our ancestors spent one or more evolutionary phases in water - and shows how these aquatic phases of humanity fall neatly into place within his revised timeline of ancient history. Tying in his extensive research into Atlantis and Lemuria, Joseph provides a 20-million-year timeline of the rise and fall of ancient civilisations, both human and pre-human, the evolutionary stages of humanity and the catastrophes and resulting climate changes that triggered them all - events that our relatively young civilisation may soon experience. He reveals 20-million-year-old quartzite tools discovered in the remains of extinct fauna in Argentina and other evidence of ancient pre-human cultures from which we are not descended. He traces the genesis of modern human civilisation to Indonesia and the Central Pacific 75,000 years ago, launched by a catastrophic volcanic eruption that abruptly reduced humanity from two million to a few thousand individuals worldwide. Examining the profound similarities of megaliths around the world, including Nabta Playa, Gobekli Tepe, Stonehenge, New Hampshire's Mystery Hill and the Japanese Oyu circles, the author explains how these precisely placed monuments of quartz were built specifically to produce altered states of consciousness, revealing the spiritual and technological sophistication of their Neolithic builders - a transoceanic civilisation fractured by the cataclysmic effects of comets. * Explores biological evidence for the aquatic ape theory and 20-million-year-old evidence of pre-human cultures from which we are not descended * Traces the genesis of modern human civilisation to Indonesia and the Central Pacific 75,000 years ago after a near-extinction-level volcanic eruption * Examines the profound similarities of megaliths around the world, including Nabta Playa and Gobekli Tepe, to reveal the transoceanic civilisation that built them all

"Frank Joseph has come up with another tour de force about ancient seafarers and early migrations across the oceans in his new book, Before Atlantis." * Gunnar Thompson, Ph.D., author of Commander Francis Drake & the West Coast Mysteries, Secret Voyages * "Frank Joseph, author and former editor-oin-chief of Ancient American Magazine, builds his case on the latest findings from biology, geology, archeology, anthropology and paleontology to assemble a 20-million-year time line of the rise and fall of pre-humans and human cultures...A profoundly revealing study." * Nexus Reviews, October 2013 * "This book closely follows some of the research done by John Anthony West and R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz that shows that some of our ancient temples were tools of transformation and of consciousness. The material in this book also brings out the extreme importance of knowing about our past catastrophic event so that we can prepare for these same events in our future. For far too long we have been kept in the dark about our human history and now the evidence is being released that we have a vast and complex past on this planet we call earth. It's time we open our minds and hearts to our true human heritage, not the story that has been force-fed to us for centuries by patriarchal organizations with less than honorable intentions." * Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, July 2013 * "Staggering in scope, Before Atlantis provides compelling evidence that there is a much richer and deeper story of our world. By setting back the clock for our civilization and species, Frank Joseph builds a foundation on which the new history of the world will be written." * Steven Sora, author of The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar and regular contributor to Atlantis * "Making use of extensive evidence from biology, genetics, geology, archaeology, art history, cultural anthropology, and archaeoastronomy, Frank Joseph offers readers many intriguing alternative ideas about the origin of the human species, the origin of civilization, and the peopling of the Americas." * Michael A. Cremo, coauthor of The Hidden History of the Human Race and author of Forbidden Archeolog * "Thrilling. Exhilarating. I literally found myself swept up in the impressive scholarship of Before Atlantis. It is tempting to pronounce this book as Joseph's masterpiece, but such an accolade somehow implies a finality, the apex of a career. This book is but another major achievement in Joseph's ever-growing library of brilliant works." * Brad Steiger, author of Conspiracies and Secret Societies and Worlds Before Our Own *
