    Description

    Are history books giving us the whole story? Or is civilization far more complex and for older than we have been taught?

    Our school textbooks barely mention the 6,000-year-old Sumerian civilization, yet the latest archaeological findings at sites such as Jericho, and most recently, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, have been dated to 10,000 BC.

    Civilization goes back at least another 10,000 years, if we are willing to believe what our ancestors themselves claimed.

    The Lost Civilization Enigma reveals the truth about:

    • Lost magnitudes to known cultures, such as the Bosnian Pyramids and the civilization of "Old Europe";
    • The fabled lost "golden" cities of South America and the Amazon, which are slowly being rediscovered;
    • Fascinating examples of lost technology, such as the Antikythera Device;
    • Atlantis and the fact that it was a real civilization.

    Analyzing historical and archaeological records, best-selling author Philip Coppens demonstrates that there is substantial evidence that civilization is far older, far more advanced, and far more special than is currently accepted. Clearly, our history books have left out a great deal!

    Large parts of history are still unknown

    Ok this is an odd book. Its one of the odd books about odd subjects that if you tried to just go out and tell others about they would give you a blank look and then slowly back away while checking your hat for tinfoil linings. That or they might think your incredibly dull and say 'that's nice dear' and ignore you.

    The author brings up good points and states odd mysteries about the world we don't have good answers for.The problem comes in when he gives tentative answers for those problems we have no good answers for. He has a very well worked out chain of logic for his views but it seems a bit mythical.

    I love the facts he digs up. He even is pretty good at telling you when he runs off on speculation and when he has a chain of proof but the entire book and a lot of the books the author writes are about the slightly strange areas of science.

    This book specifically is about civilizations that didn't leave any useful written language carved into stone blocks buried in the desert. So the only traces we have of them are some really big rock formations, stories about how or what they were like from the civilizations that came after them, and religious texts that maybe up for interpretation.

    This books tells how there are still things that are out there about our history that we don't know or may never know.

    Not as factual as I would have liked

    What disappointed you about The Lost Civilization Enigma?

    The author constantly berates scientists as having prejudices against his ideas and urges them to get out into the field. As a scientist I have to say that I spend plenty of time in the field and have changed my hypotheses many times. At the same time the author holds up stories or legends and states that they "obviously" or "undoubtedly" must be true even though he sometimes presents little or no evidence to support the idea. Still, I must say that the book touches on many interesting topics. I enjoyed it, even though I gritted my teeth through some sections.

    I, too would love it if some of the ideas in this book were true, and they may be, but we need hard proof.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Philip Coppens? Why or why not?

    Yes. His writing style is not bad and he brought up some interesting points.

    What three words best describe David Drummond’s voice?

    His voice is excellent.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lost Civilization Enigma?

    I would cut out the conjecture and reciting of legends as though they were fact. With some careful editing, this would be an excellent book.

    Rather Good

    Any additional comments?

    Taken together with The Ancient Alien Question, these two books have information I haven't come across in any other searches or reference materials regarding this subject. As well, this book is well thought out and has references.

    Makes you think

    This is the kind of audiobook that makes you question how much you know, and how much you can really trust the experts not to put their own credibility over the truth.

    Great book

    Great history twists, a mind opener to our ancient origins. Must be open to theories that normal history books keep out.

    Mostly complaining with no good details

    I share the authors views that established archeology will go to great lengths to ignore anything that challenges established dates and theories. However with this book I was disappointed that rather than give voice and analysis to these ignored theories he spends almost the entire first 5 chapters constantly whining about all the archeologists who have ignored or debunked alternate theories. I have to admit I stopped listening after the 5th chapter. It makes no sense to me to give these "bad guys" more of your attention than the supposed theories they attacked. I was looking for solid analysis and facts and never found any that were thoroughly pursued. Any factual line always lead to more recriminations. For readers like me who are interested in facts I would suggest Graham Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods. They only have the abridged version in audible but its nicely narrated and you will definitely get some solid information out of it.

    I was looking for something more fact-based

    this should have been more clearly explained, that this wasn't a fact-based book, very disappointed

    A nice book

    This is a nice book. It addresses issues in science and history. He sounds reasonable in the way he expresses his ideas.
