The creation mythoi of ancient cultures tend to attribute their origins to some external source of advanced knowledge. Quite often, this is interpreted to be gods or some other form of extraterrestrial intellect. However, there are those who feel that this external source may be of a terrestrial origin. Andrew Collins provides an alternate assessment of an advanced hybrid hominid species, which was displaced by cataclysmic events, and may have been the progenitors of civilization as we know it.
Andrew Collins has investigated the relationship between paranormal phenomena, ancient sites, and the human mind for more than twenty-five years. His books challenge our ideas regarding the way we see the past and its effect on our lives today. His most recent book, Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods examines the megalith’s role in the rise of civilization and how it connects to the Garden of Eden.
