What if our concept of our planet’s history was completely different from what we’ve been taught? What if our concept of our species’ history was quite different from that which we’ve been led to believe? These are two of the disturbing questions discussed in depth in the fascinating collection of forty-two essays that make up Forbidden History, an intriguing and hard-to-put-down book that delves deeply into the positions of many of the world’s key thinkers and leading scientists that suggest an alternative history to our planet and our humanity.

Editor and publisher of Atlantis Rising, J. Douglas Kenyon has collected material that will shock and awe, with contributions from some of the leading researchers into a variety of sciences that chronicle their discoveries surrounding such controversial topics as the Pyramids, Atlantis, an extraterrestrial origin of human beings, catastrophes and ancient civilizations far older and far greater than we have ever been taught about in school.

These thoughtful, well-presented and impeccably researched essays form a foundation that shakes the foundation of history itself, presenting a totally different viewpoint of who we are, where we came from, and why we are here - not to mention where we might be heading. There are essays from the likes of Frank Joseph, Will Hart, Christopher Dunn, David Lewis and others, covering such subjects as the enigma of India’s origins, the unsolved mystery of the Pyramids, ancient high-tech society, underwater ruins of Atlantis and Mu, the evidence for catastrophic floods in our past, sudden and gradual earth changes, the battle between evolution and creationism, and so much more. The theories of such noted thinkers as Zecharia Sitchin, Graham Hancock and John Anthony West are also compared and contrasted.

Ultimately, reading Forbidden History is like reading the history of an alternate universe because it so deeply challenges our status quo concept of how we got here and how we evolved into modern civilized humans. And the fact that it does so with plenty of solid research, facts and statistics to back it all up is really chilling, and exciting, because our past may be more of a mystery than we could ever imagine.

With plenty of black-and-white pictures and a full-color center photo spread, the viewpoints and perspectives presented in Forbidden History may read like the wildest speculative fiction, but are fact, whether we are ready to accept it or not. This is an important book that will no doubt open the door for even more research and discussion, enough so that someday, we all might really know the truth.
