9781907486098: Civilization One: The World is Not as You Thought It Was

There must have been a Civilization One: a highly advanced precursor to the earliest recognized civilization. That's the conclusion reached in this fascinating book. Christopher Knight and Alan Butler began with a quest to crack the mystery of the ancient megalithic yard”-a precise unit of measurement based on the motions of the Earth, Moon, and Sun. It seems beyond the comprehension of the supposedly unsophisticated people of Stone Age Britain, and yet the measurement kept appearing in ancient structures. The authors' breakthrough discovery goes far beyond the idea of prehistory, and has far-reaching theological ramifications.

Book Description Watkins Media, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the amazing story of how a quest to try to crack the mystery of the Megalithic Yard - an ancient unit of linear measurement - led to the discovery of compelling evidence pointing to the existence of an unknown, highly advanced culture which was the precursor to the earliest known civilizations such as the Sumerians and the Egyptians. There must have been a Civilization One. Knight and Butler reveal the secrets of an extraordinary integrated measuring system which might have been lost to the world for ever. It was a system, far more advanced than anything used today, which forms the basis of both the Imperial and Metric measure systems! These ancient scientists understood the dimensions, motions and relationships of the Earth, Moon and Sun - they measured the solar system and even understood how the speed of light was integrated into the movements of our planet. Their conclusions fly in the face of everything that we thought we knew about the origins of the modern world - but the evidence is incontrovertible. And the implications of these revelations go far beyond the fascination of the discovery of a super-science of prehistory; they indicate a grand plan which will have far reaching theological ramifications!.
