If Jesus is such a significant figure in world history, what does the historical record give us about who he was and where he came from. That’s the question which Ralph Ellis asks, and as far as I am concerned, answers – by working his way through Josephus Flavius’ many deceptions and finding out the true historical context of the events that took place.
Ellis’ notion that the Israelites came out of Egypt because they were in fact Egyptian, is a key fact that his book ‘Cleopatra to Christ’ gets across forcefully. The Hebrew language descends from Egyptian, and many of Ellis’ explanations use his linguistic knowledge of Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew and Persian to track the family dynasty from which the biblical Jesus is descended.
The Lost History of Ancient America presents new evidence of transoceanic visitors to America, hundreds, even thousands, of years before Christopher Columbus was born. In ancient times, the sea was not an impassable barrier separating our ancestors from the outside world, but a highway taking them to every corner of it. Never before and nowhere else has so much evidence proving the impact made on America by overseas visitors been assembled. You will learn about:
A chain of stonewalls across southern Illinois that has stood for the last two millennia.
A profusion of plants flourishing throughout the United States and Canada that originated more than 20 centuries ago.
Underwater ruins recently found off the coast of Oregon.
Bronze Age oil wells in Pennsylvania.
And much, much more.

Some mysterious places are born with legendary qualities, others have legendary qualities thrust upon them. Both are the case with Mt. Shasta, which has been the subject of mystical speculation perhaps more than any other single mountain in history.
A great deal is revealed about Mt. Shasta and how it is related to other mysteries in California. The Town of Chico and its Founder John Bidwell played a distant yet important role in the development of many of the strange myths and legends of Mt. Shasta. The entire notion of cities beneath the mountain or hidden treasures may be a result of much older European “Man in the Mountain” myths. Strangely the already existing Native American creation story of Mt. Shasta and the people is very similar to this European tradition. See how the creation of the New Age may have been a response to the American ideal and its value of freedom of religion. The Bidwell family played an interesting role that relates them to many of the movers and shakers of the New Age.
Brien Foerster postulates that there is mounting scientific evidence that our planet was struck by a devastating cataclysm about 12,000 years ago. Global sea levels, as the result of rapidly melting polar ice rose by more than 300 feet in a very short period of time, causing the planet to become unstable. In Egypt, Peru, Bolivia, Lebanon and other locations we see the existence of ancient damaged but very sophisticated megalithic stone structures which we would be hard pressed to re-create today. They hint that once upon a time one or “Atlantean” civilizations indeed did exist.
