Michael Cremo and Today

History is to learn from

Michael Cremo, also known by his devotional name Drutakarmā Dāsa, is an American freelance researcher who identifies himself as a Vedic creationist and an alternative archaeologist. He has made some very interesting discoveries from which we can arrive at the possibility that humanity has been around for millions of years and over different periods developed basic metallurgy and similar technologies.

There is a possibility that the Egyptian pyramids were constructed 35,000 or so years ago to produce electricity for global distribution. On the other hand these evidences could represent that alien cultures have resided here and either died out or departed. Certainly some of the unidentifiable metallic objects, giants and other phenomena provide interesting food for thought.

On the other hand we have Hindu artefacts going back to that same date but no substantive data to complete the picture - continuity of modern humanity . Like many I tend to keep these possibilities open (to the civilisations that may have risen and fallen over the millennia) yet it is this round of civilisation that's far more important. Assuming that past civilisations have been and gone, we have not been able to determine if they were successful because if they were, surely they would still exist.

It is the past 20,000 years which is far more interesting because now we can trace the origins of Dharma and access the wisdom of our ancestors although it may not be enough to save this round of civilisation which seems so bent on self-destruction. Assuming that we (civilisation) grew from past failures then that is an incentive to put in more effort to succeed now. But we can also see that ignorance of Dharma leads to failure.

I'm not disagreeing with Michael Cremo, I'm just saying that's part of the overall background bringing us to here. But what's more important is clarifying our history over the past 10,000 years or so which is happening. It seems reasonably clear that civilisation began in the region of India where knowledge and the concepts of Dharma got somewhat diluted and misinterpreted further away from the motherland they travelled. Yet Dharma has been tainted by capitalism and in many places turned into belief systems for economic and political control.

While Nilesh Oak and so many continue the research, we need more of a drive to replace the colonial textbooks in our schools so that kids learn more about actual history, the consequences of capitalism, colonialism and the possibility of a heaven on earth by living in accord with Dharma because all of the heavens described by religions require that you be dead to enjoy.

Over the past centuries, researchers have found bones and art-crafts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why?

Because they contradict dominant views of human origins and antiquity. Evolutionary prejudices, deeply held powerful groups of scientists, have acted as what Michael A. Cremo and Richard L.Thompson call a knowledge filter. And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins According to Cremo and Thompson, we have come to accept a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect.

This book is a call for a change in today's arbitrarily rigid mindset. Deploying an unexpectedly great number of convincing facts, deeply illuminated with critical analysis. Cremo and Thompson challenge us to rethink our understanding of human origins, identity and destiny. In forbidden archaeology, we accompany the authors on a fascinating intellectual expedition.

We take part in the literary excavation of a vast store of hidden knowledge that adds a new dimension to our understanding of the history of our spieces. The journey of exploration takes us accross five continents to key archeological sites. Some long forgotten, some the centre of ongoing research. Along the way, we encounter many famous and infamous pioneers of prehistoric research, all with secrets to share.

"Forbidden archaeology" is bound to inspire controversy, challenging as ti does one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Meticulously researched and carefully written. The book takes us to a crossroads of knoweledge and invites us to take a courageous first step in a new direction of truth.
