For more than twenty-five years, history and science writer Andrew Collins has investigated the relationship between paranormal phenomena, ancient sites, and the human mind. His books challenge our ideas regarding the way we see the past, and its effect on our lives today. Among them are From the Ashes of Angels, which sees the Watchers and Nephilim of the Book of Enoch as a race of human beings who instigated the Neolithic revolution at the end of the last Ice Age; Gods of Eden, which shows the greater antiquity of Egyptian civilization and its roots in ancient Eden, the home of the Watchers; Gateway to Atlantis, which pins down Atlantis to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, with Cuba as its flagship, and his latest book The Cygnus Mystery, which shows that evolution was accelerated by cosmic rays coming from the direction of the Cygnus constellation. He is also the organizer of the annual Questing Conference, Britain’s largest conference on ancient mysteries. He lives in England.
Mythology describes how beings of great beauty and intelligence, who served as messengers of gods, fell from grace through pride. These angels, also known as Watchers, lusted after human women, lay with them, and fathered giant offspring called the Nephilim. Andrew Collins reveals that these angels were flesh-and-blood members of a race who lived in Egypt (prior to the ancient Egyptians), before leaving the region for what is now eastern Turkey.
The stone temple complex of Göbekli Tepe in Turkey, built at the end of the last ice age with stones weighing from 10 to 15 tons, shows a level of sophistication that was unmatched until the much later rise of Sumer, Egypt, and Babylon. Was it built in response to the Great Flood, and were the Watchers of the Book of Enoch and the Anunnaki gods of Sumerian tradition behind its construction?
The ancient Egyptians claimed they inherited their advanced culture from a race of Elder gods who lived during a previous age. Gods of Eden describes how the Egyptians mastered acoustic technology, using sound to raise heavy objects and pierce holes through solid rock.
