about this book

Colin Wilson’s new book, co-written with Rand Flem-Ath, continues the work that Wilson began in his 1996 book From Atlantis to the Sphinx. In June 1990, Egyptologist John West accompanied geologist Robert Schoch to Cairo to take a closer look at the Sphinx. For almost two decades, West had been arguing that the erosion of the Sphinx revealed that rain rather than windblown-sand had weathered it. If that was true, the Sphinx had to be thousands of years older than Egyptologists believe–after all, the authors conclude, Egypt has had little measurable rain in thousands of years. They therefore determined that the Sphinx dates back to 7000 BC–a time when in fact there was not supposed to be any civilization anywhere in the world–and must have been built by the survivors of the vanished civilization which Plato called Atlantis. Rand Flem-Ath and Colin Wilson’s book crosses continents, arguing that this earlier civilization did exist, but was destroyed around 9600 BC.
