If mankind possessed such knowledge, and shared it around the globe,
with contact between people on every continent, and apparent harmony
or at least mutually beneficial trade taking place between members of
all the different nations and families of the human race (who, after
all, are all truly brothers and sisters, mutually descended from the
survivors of a fairly recent global catastrophe, regardless of the
physical and cultural differences that began to develop as they
spread out again to inhabit the various parts of the planet), then
what could have taken place to plunge them into ignorance, isolation,
and hatred for centuries or even millennia to come?
We don’t know the answer, but it is pretty certain that if we
don’t even know that it ever happened, we won’t be able
to even start asking the questions.
The answer may or may not involve some of the suggestions and
conclusions that I have reached in my book. The geological answers
may or may not match exactly some of the conclusions Dr. Brown has
reached with his extensive and rigorous examination of the evidence.
But it is pretty clear that this is an important line of inquiry, and
one that concerns everyone. We need to approach it with open minds,
and with a willingness to entertain all possible explanations which
can demonstrate that they can provide answers to the evidence.
That is why this forum and those like it are so important, and why
the engaged analysis of all of its readers is so valuable. It is
also why the thought leadership that Graham Hancock has demonstrated
for more than two decades has been so exemplary and so important, and
why the conversations that he has started around the world matter
I am excited to be part of this conversation and urge everyone to
stay engaged and not to become discouraged by those who use ridicule
or derisive labels to shut down inquiry. I look forward to hearing
what you have to say.
