Disturbing new evidence recently published in leading scientific journals confirms that multiple fragments of a disintegrating giant comet struck the earth in a series of cataclysmic bombardments that began 12,800 years ago and continued until 11,600 years ago. The impacts brought the last Ice Age to an end, caused worldwide extinctions of animal species and changed the face of the Earth. Established theories about the emergence of civilization cite the invention of agriculture and monumental architecture at precisely 11,600 years ago – immediately after this sustained cataclysmic episode – yet the cataclysm itself is not taken into account by archaeologists seeking to explain the origins of civilization. What the record attests, Graham Hancock argues, is not the sudden “invention” of new and previously unknown skills, but a transfer of technology to hunter-gatherers from the survivors of a more advanced “lost” civilization. These survivors were remembered by later cultures under such names such as ‘the Sages’, ‘the Magicians’, ‘the Shining Ones’, and ‘the Mystery Teachers of Heaven’. They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning. They settled at key locations where new archeological discoveries are now being unearthed – Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in the Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia. Everywhere they went these ‘Magicians of the Gods’ brought with them the memory of a time when mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe and paid a heavy price — a memory of immense significance to the predicament of our own society today.
