History is the lie commonly agreed upon, according to Voltaire. Henry T. Ford updated the sentiment for the 20th century by saying that "history is bunk."
The commonly accepted picture of prehistory (man evolved from apes via a "missing link" approximately 4 million years ago) may be largely incorrect as evidenced by a multitude of archeological finds that are routinely suppressed by mainstream science. Bones and artifacts have been discovered over the past two centuries showing that humans (like contemporary man) existed millions of years ago, but ruling archeologists use prejudices based on current scientific theory as a "knowledge filter" to suppress these finds when they write their textbooks. Instead, probable guesses are paraded as facts throughout our schools of primary, secondary, and higher learning.
The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson, first published by Govardhan Hill in 1993, is a controversial challenge to rethink our understanding of human origins, identity and destiny. The authors call for a change in today's rigid scientific mindset and the accepted methods of science itself.
Status Quo Suppression
A product of years of painstaking research, this book catalogues much of the mounds of evidence indicating the origin of the human race predates by millenia what is currently accepted. It also reveals how and why these finds have been suppressed, ignored, and forgotten. Reprinted with this article is a table listing several of these archeological finds and their age in millions of year (Myr.). When you read this book you will never cease to be surprised at how much archeological evidence has been "buried" by mainstream scientists.
Who created a grooved metallic sphere 2.8 billion years ago, or the shoe print over 505-590 million years ago? While the ruling archeologists in the big universities are busy bickering over whether man originated 4 million years ago or 4.5 or 3.5, independent investigators continue to turn up human skeletons and footprints from 286-320 million years ago! "My mind's made up, don't bother me with the facts" is the pervading attitude that keeps the status quo in their positions of power, and ridicule is a great deterrent, especially when large egos are at stake.

Confronting the Scientific Establishment
If you are intrigued by the mysteries of the human race and our origins, then you must read this book. It is a thoroughly documented job that confronts the position of the scientific establishment. Co-author Michael Cremo discussed this book on 21st Century Radio on 4/10/94 and 9/25/94.
We also highly recommend another Govardhan Hill Publication, Alien Identities: Ancient Insights Into Modern UFO Phenomena, by Richard L. Thompson, who was a guest on 21st Century Radio on 9/17/95. We thought this book was so good, we sent a complimentary copy of it to former Beatle, George Harrison! To order, call: 1-800-HIDDEN-1, Torch Light Publications, P.O. Box 177, Badger, CA 93603.
Although it is rare for a major television network to produce a special that questions the prevailing status quo research in any field of knowledge, perhaps Cremo and Thompson's Hidden History of the Human Race has been on the shelves long enough to make some impression on NBC's producers, because in March 1996, NBC-TV aired "The Mysterious Origins of Man," hosted by Charlton Heston. "The Mysterious Origins of Man" is a fascinating documentary that presents controversial evidence challenging history as we "know" it. Although the academic community has quietly but persistently ignored the research of Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson as found in their book The Hidden History of the Human Race, Charlton Heston persuasively explains it. Order your copy of "The Mysterious Origins of Man" (46 minutes) and its companion tape (60 minutes) from BC Video by calling 1-800-846-9682 or writing to BC Video Inc., P.O. Box 97, Shelburne, VT 05482. We highly recommend it and plan to invite its creators and/or Charlton Heston to join us on the air to discuss this production in the coming months.
Future Book Reviews
Two book reviews coming in future Hieronimus & Co. newsletters will include Cadborosaurus: Survivor from the Deep by Drs. Paul H. LeBlond and Edward L. Bousfield, published by Horsdal and Schubart (phone: 604-360-2031). These two researchers have discovered "Cadborosaurus Willsi" which is a new genus, new species, and also a large aquatic reptile (i.e. a sea serpent) inhabiting the Pacific Coast of North America. We will also review High Strangeness: UFOs From 1960 Through 1979: The UFO Encyclopedia Volume 3 by Jerome Clark, Omnigraphics (1-800-234-1340), a blockbuster of a compendium of one of the most interesting topics of our time.
