A shattering new perspective on human history...
This is the book that proves Erich von Daniken wrong. "Colony: Earth" shows that ancient astronauts came and STAYED. Earth was colonized by beings from another universe.
For millennia, man has tried to remember where he came from. "God created him," said the theologians. "He evolved from other forms of life," said the scientists. In any case, they agreed, man was native to Earth.
Not necessarily, says author Richard E. Mooney. Evidence from both scientific research and mythology - the "memory" of the human race - suggests another origin. True humans may have appeared on the earth thousands of years ago, clothed, equipped with weapons and technology, and with intelligence equal or superior to that of man today.
"Colony: Earth" demonstrates the author's contention that religion, far from being at odds with science, may itself be a vague and distorted memory of things once known - things we are now beginning to rediscover through science.
Like Immanuel Velikovsky's "Worlds in Collision" and "The Morning of the Magicians" by Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, "Colony: Earth" will infuriate the dogmatic, engage the skeptic, and delight the open-minded.
"For those readers impatient with the gaps in traditional science and theology, dissatisfied with both divine creation and evolutionary theory, Richard Mooney offers a radical hypothesis..." -Publishers Weekly
