Oh yes, we're going there. This man makes liberals seethe, makes Egyptologists and archeologists angry, and is absolutely and most definitely out to shake up this world and change things. He actually explicitly says he is against governments and that it is time to move to a different form of society where if there is a "government" it has a very limited role. He talks about unity, equality. He is often complaining about the profit motive, to me that sounds like communism to me, or some would say ACID COMMUNISM
Why are liberal academics and the science establishment Egyptologists and archaeologists so against even considering his theories? Because it would totally shake up the liberal worldview of us being the peak of human achievement and the status quo being the best society we could possibly achieve. Not to mention that a lost civilisation gives credence to historical materialism. According to liberals, if we have learned these ideas and society organisation, it'd be impossible to forget it. But historical materialism says that the type of society that emerges is dependent on the mode of production, or rather the relationships in the modes of production. So if an advanced, lost civilisation existed, and we "unlearned" all those things, it makes sense in the context of HistMat, but not liberal ideology.
Furthermore, Hancock says that those from the lost civilisation who survived the cataclysm that happened around 12.500 years ago, went out to different parts of the world and taught the hunter gatherers they found agriculture, astronomy, engineering, math, etc. and had them produce large monuments using these techniques. Thus it wasn't just the ideas they transfered, but they transformed their societies from the ground up, focusing on construction and production of surplus through agriculture, allowing everything else to flourish.
PYRAMIDS were built by an ancient civilisation. There is no fucking way the fucking hunter gathers of the desert in Egypt built the pyramids, or any of the contemporary structures. It is much more likely ancient Egyptians found a lot of that stuff and tried to copy it. Why else would the construction get worse as the time goes on? There are a lot of amazing constructions around the World, and I simply do not believe that a by definition nomadic society, who spent all of its time looking for food (no agriculture) built the pyramids in Africa, C. and S.
