The Lost Realms
Author: Zecharia Sitchin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
The Earth Chronicles series is based on the premise that mythology is not fanciful but the repository of ancient memories; that the Bible ought to be read literally as a historic/scientific document; and that ancient civilizations--older and greater than assumed--were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came." The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, presents ancient evidence for the existence of an additional planet in the Solar System: the home planet of the Anunnaki. In confirmation of this evidence, recent data from unmanned spacecraft has led astronomers to actively search for what is being called "Planet X." The subsequent volume, The Stairway to Heaven, traces man's unending search for immortality to a spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula and to the Giza pyramids, which had served as landing beacons for it--refuting the notion that these pyramids were built by human pharaohs. Recently, records by an eye witness to a forgery of an inscription by the pharaoh Khufu inside the Great Pyramid corroborated the book's conclusions. The Wars of Gods and Men, recounting events closer to our times, concludes that the Sinai spaceport was destroyed 4,000 years ago with nuclear weapons. Photographs of Earth from space clearly show evidence of such an explosion. Such gratifying corroboration of audacious conclusions has been even swifter for The Lost Realms. In the relatively short interval between the completion of the manuscript and its publication, archaeologists, linguists, and other scientists have offered a "coastal theory" in lieu of the "frozen trekking" one to account for man's arrival in the Americas--in ships, as this volume has concluded. These experts have "suddenly discovered 2,000 years of missing civilization" in the words of a Yale University scholar--confirming this book's conclusion--and are now linking the beginnings of such civilizations to those of the Old World, as Sumerian texts and biblical verses. For the first time, the entire Earth Chronicles series is now available in a hardcover collector's edition.
Worlds Before Our Own
Author: Brad Steiger
Publisher: Anomalist Books
Twenty-two years beforeTechnology of the Gods... Seventeen years beforeFingerprints of the Gods... Fifteen years beforeForbidden Archaeology... There was...Worlds Before Our Own, Brad Steiger's groundbreaking argument for the existence of a global prehistoric civilization. The evidence Steiger had amassed for such a claim was based primarily upon finds of "erratics" mysterious "man-made" artifacts found in the deepest, most primordial geological strata. When Worlds Before Our Own was first published, it was met with scathing reviews--even demands that the book be taken from the shelves and burned. Steiger's desire to determine humankind's true origins has always been one of his greatest areas of interest, and he was shocked that both the scientific and religious establishments had reacted so negatively to the theories put forward in the book. Hostile reviewers fumed that Steiger had no right to reveal archaeological discoveries that could threaten the traditional timetables of human evolution. Eventually critics began to hail the book as "mostly brilliant" and "daring," and in the past couple of decades the concepts first presented in Worlds Before Our Own have garnered tremendous critical and popular support. This is the book that started it all. Brad Steiger's first explorations of the strange and unexplained appeared in 1956. He is the author/coauthor of 164 books in the paranormal, UFO, and prehistoric mystery fields, including such titles as Mysteries of Time and Space, Project Blue Book, Revelation: The Divine Fire, Conspiracies and Secret Societies, Strange Guests, and Shadow World."

The Bible Unearthed
Author: Israel Finkelstein, Neil Asher Silberman
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
In this groundbreaking work that sets apart fact and legend, authors Finkelstein and Silberman use significant archeological discoveries to provide historical information about biblical Israel and its neighbors. In this iconoclastic and provocative work, leading scholars Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman draw on recent archaeological research to present a dramatically revised portrait of ancient Israel and its neighbors. They argue that crucial evidence (or a telling lack of evidence) at digs in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon suggests that many of the most famous stories in the Bible—the wanderings of the patriarchs, the Exodus from Egypt, Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, and David and Solomon’s vast empire—reflect the world of the later authors rather than actual historical facts. Challenging the fundamentalist readings of the scriptures and marshaling the latest archaeological evidence to support its new vision of ancient Israel, The Bible Unearthed offers a fascinating and controversial perspective on when and why the Bible was written and why it possesses such great spiritual and emotional power today.

This is the book you and I have been waiting for since authoring The Anunnaki of Nibiru released August 4th, 2013. The issues and questions that this research raised with the readers were carefully studied to locate the link between humanity's South African genesis account and today. How does one proceed after discovering that modern man was fashioned by the Anunnaki to supplant the labor force they brought to Earth from Nibiru? This knowledge changes all that we have been coerced into believing as the truth. A theme began to emerge given the lessons accessed from sacred writings. The profound nature of the material provided in this book took time to study, understand, process the lessons and assimilate them into a coherent message. Questions like "If the Anunnaki created mankind, then who created them?" The answer takes one back to the SOURCE of our reality. Are we evolving physically and consciously towards an archetype used in our biological design? Where are we headed as a species and to what extent are our genetic creators shaping the outcome? Who are the Dark Lords behind the NWO and will Light prevail? In my quest to find the ascension path out of our prison planet conditions, no map was found. The truth, as it always has been for participants on the stage of life, is a pathless land. Only through deep seeking at a spiritual level, could the wisdom be accessed. Profound and timely guidance from the pillars of Atlantis hold the keys to our ascension. The time to lift the veil of oppression, barbarian to Mystery School Graduate is here. Portal access to return to the Source of All creation exists. Mystery Schools run by the first Al-Khemist, Thoth the Atlantean, instructed highly qualified candidates in the Ancient Science of Continuous Creation. Some well-known graduates include Plato and Pythagorus. Thoth, also known as Ningishzida in the Sumerian cuneiform records, had many names in cultures separated by thousands of years. Also known as names (AKA) for him cause great consternation in the Abrahamic religions. Ningishzida, Thoth the Atlantean, Thrice Great Hermes, Yehosua (Biblical Jesus) and Melchizedek are just a few. Thoth was one of the immortals that chose to participate in helping mankind out of his quarantined perception prison. Combining genealogy studies, biblical theology, ancient astronaut theory, geopolitical developments, and a deep scientific understanding of the properties and nature of light led to an unexpected outcome, a profound unveiling intended for my supporters. The message and detailed criteria on how to participate in the Great Year ascension is presented to the reader in a manner that is easy to understand, given the complex nature of our reality. The unveiling re-invigorated me to write this book, simultaneous to the timing of the great culling planned for WW3. The reader will undoubtedly put the book down and zealously SEEK TO share the wisdom with family and friends, arming them with the knowledge that removes any remaining ideas or fears about the sting of death as we understand it. Overcoming our fear of death is part of the process to embrace the transformation we experience during aging. What if you knew that death was an illusion and conducted your life to achieve the goals that were determined by the Creator of All to lead you to the reflective consciousness that is the source of space-time and our reality here on the 7th Planet? Where Mercury-Ningishzida's role to raise mankind's consciousness during the ascension window is reaching a crescendo. Join me on this profound life-altering journey where the reader will encounter the mystical process that leads to the knowledge and reality of immortality if one chooses it. May the soul of the universe be with you and provide unmatched peace and comfort holding thy form through the transition to a new reality. I look forward to meeting you all at the SOURCE.
