Hi all -
Graham Hancock's new book is not all that bad.
He has big stones (Gobekli Tepe, the Pyramids, Baalbek, some in south east asia, and Tiwanaku).
(Believe me, big piles of dirt do not work.)
For Christians in need of material evidence to support their faith, he has Noah's Flood.
There are three sections of color plates, and fine illustrations.
Of course, Hancock lumps all pleistocene mariners together, as well as elliding impact events,
but not as badly as many have.
Using "ancient precessional astronomy".Hancock sets a maximum period of danger from 1980 to 2040, well after he's dead.
The usual process is to make people afraid and then sell them their fears.
But instead of that, fortunately Hancock really lights into NASA,
and they truly deserve it, as we can handle this problem.
Further it looks like Hancock's PR campaign is working quite well.
One problem with it, though,is that the maximum danger may likely be as early as 2022-2023.
Cheap used copies of my own Man and Impact in the Americas, of which Hancock was and is oblivious, and which has far more impacts than Hancock's book, are available through amazon. I suggest taking your money and collecting several today, and then borrowing a copy of Hancok's book from the library.
(BTW - Perhaps the Romans set the extremely large stones around the Temple of Jupiter as an effort to hold it still in earthquakes.
Also, perhaps the pillars at the Sphinx Temple were originally painted with hieroglyphic inscriptions,
