Imagine the following scene: Eric Schliemann having to get the permission of scientists, telling them that, based on Homer's descriptions, he believes he can discover the mythical Troy. Besides laughing their hearts out, do you believe there would even be the slightest chance for Schliemann to have gotten their permission? And it is not just Troy nor just Knossos nor just the Mycenae, most major archaeological findings in the entire world, despite the references in the ancient texts, were a complete surprise for the scientific establishment. If that establishment had full control, all those discoveries would simply never have happened.The main purpose of this book is to present evidence supporting the theory of a relatively advanced civilization during prehistory, which was however lost due to some natural catastrophe. This is mainly attempted by presenting knowledge of the ancient people which they are not justified to have had and similarities between very distant cultures which should not have existed. How advanced was that civilization? I would say somewhat more advanced than that of Europe during the 18th century AC. Secondarily, but no less important, there are the following goals:*To reveal the huge danger our civilization faces from cosmic impacts and help realize how much more frequent natural catastrophes are than we think.*To shoot down the theories regarding Indo-Europeans & foreign invaders in the area of Greece, proving that the Greeks have preserved knowledge from events that happened in this area many thousand years before their time.*To show that mythology hides within itself big doses of historical truth as it describes real events, although often distorted by the human imagination. And this truth may be of great help to the work of science in the investigation of the unknown aspects of our past.*To trouble the reader on how much we really differ from men of past eras, even from other human species, contrary to the common belief that we are vastly "superior".*To arouse the reader's interest in the ancient mysteries which spread like a fog over the history of the human civilization.Science after all accepts that large-scale catastrophes often occur while man walked the earth, so is it really unlikely for the human civilization to have had a set-back at least once in the past? On the contrary I would say, it is probably the normal thing. In a smaller scale than the one proposed here, there have been many set-backs in the human civilization, like the domination of the Romans (when the Hellenistic Age collapsed), the collapse of the Romans themselves later on, the rise of Islam, and more.The funny part is that science accepts the Indo-European theory, meaning that there was an Indo-European / Arian race which started travelling around the world during prehistoric times spreading civilization, but left no single trace behind before mysteriously disappearing. But how far is the Indo-European theory from that of a lost civilization? Not much, as one difference is the time period and the other one is the geographical area (the present theory presupposes the crossing of the ocean). So how reasonable is it for one theory to be officially adopted by science and the other to be out of the question?We are used to rejecting anything opposed to the established views, but during the course of human history all the great pioneers did exactly that: challenged the status quo.
