Quatrième de couverture :

In 1991 a Boston professor of geology made a shocking announcement - the Sphinx had been weathered by water, and not wind-blown sand as previously thought. This would make it thousands of years older than the oldest civilisation known to man.

Subsequent research showed that it could have been built as early as 10,500 BC, by survivors of a great catastrophe which occurred around the time when, according to Plato, the 'lost civilisation' of Atlantis was destroyed.

In this revised and updated edition of his groundbreaking book, bestselling author Colin Wilson argues that civilisation is likely to be far older than we have always believed. Thousands of years before the reign of ancient Egypt and Greece, a great civilisation existed. What's more, these 'old ones' possessed a sophisticated knowledge system that offered them a unified view of the universe. It was this knowledge - alien to modern man - that enabled them to move stones weighing a thousand tons.

From Atlantis to the Sphinx is a fascinating exploration of the remote depths of history and a compelling attempt to understand these long forgotten people.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Inspired by the revelation that the Sphinx had been weathered by water and not by wind-blown sand and was, therefore, thousands of years older than the oldest civilisation known to man, Colin Wilson sets out to explore the remote depths of history. The compelling argument of this bestselling book is that, thousands of years before Ancient Egypt and Greece held sway, there was a great civilisation whose ships travelled the world and who possessed some knowledge system that offered a unified view of the universe, alien to modern man. In this fascinating exploration of the world at a time when, according to Plato, the 'lost civilisation' of Atlantis was destroyed, the author makes a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten peoples thought, felt and communicated on a universal plane.

Description du livre Weiser Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. État : New. 224 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this compelling book, Colin Wilson argues that thousands of years before ancient Egypt and Greece held sway, there was a great civilization whose ships traveled the world from China to Antarctica. Their advanced knowledge of science, mathematics, and astronomy was passed on to descendants who escaped to Egypt and South America. From Atlantis to the Sphinx bases this assertion on a true fact: that archaeologists and geologists are at odds over the age of the Sphinx. Archaeologists claim that the Sphinx dates to classical dynastic Egypt, around 2,400 b.c. But some geologists claim that it could have been built as early as 7,000 to 10,500 b.c. The geologists claim is based on the curious fact that the erosion of the Sphinx is more characteristic of water erosion than that of wind and sand. Starting from the assumption that there was an advanced civilization in existence much earlier than previously thought, Wilson goes on to claim that it could very well be Atlantis--not a literal island that sank, but more of a great civilization that either declined naturally or experienced a great catastrophe, passing on only a fraction of its knowledge to other peoples. From Atlantis to the Sphinx delves into what might have been a completely different knowledge system from that of modern man--one as alien to us as that of the Martians. The book sets out to reconstruct that ancient knowledge in a fascinating exploration of the remote depths of history, a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten peoples thought, felt, and communicated with the universe.
