Item description for Worlds Before Our Own by Steiger Brad...
Twenty-two years before Technology of the Gods... Seventeen years before Fingerprints of the Gods... Fifteen years before Forbidden Archaeology... ...there was Worlds Before Our Own, Brad Steiger's groundbreaking argument for the existence of a global prehistoric civilization. The evidence Steiger had amassed for such a claim was based primarily upon finds of "erratics" -- mysterious "man-made" artifacts found in the deepest, most primordial geological strata. In the past couple of decades the concepts first presented in Worlds Before Our Own have garnered tremendous critical and popular support. This is the book that started it all.

Very thought provoking May 12, 2008
Hi everyone. This is not your usual run of the mill ufo conspiracy theory book written for psychics by authors who can't distinguish the nuts & the bolts from the spiritual, whereby the only people who can see ufos are of the psychic persuasion but is rather an alternative view on ancient civilisations & the possibility that we are not the first advanced technological civilisation. The author goes on to describe annoying annomolies & artifacts that are dug up at archaeological digs from depths in the ground where only dinosaur bones are supposed to be found which would make these artifacts millions of years old. The author also asks the taboo question whether mankind actually existed alongside these giant reptiles.
Not only is there mention of giant reptiles but of giant humans, too. Is it possible that the human race were responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs? There is mention of a giant human skeleton at 34 feet long! This raises the questions if there were such massive humans what species were they & if technology was so advanced at one time is it possible that these humans were genetically engineered to be so big & why isn't there mention of these giant human species in orthodox natural history books?
Atlantis is also mentioned & the possibility was mentioned that it was once a vast island continent that spanned the Atlantic ocean & may have been destroyed by complacent scientists or in a massive prehistoric war. Amerindian history teaches of human history as being cyclic, that is the human race starts off as hunter gatherers & then advances technologically until the human race meets a golden age in science & medicine & then the advanced civilisation gets destroyed either in a natural disaster or the human race becomes arrogant, complacent & greedy & destroys itself in a massive war! There is mention of evidence of prehistoric nuclear conflicts on our planet where glassy patches are found in the sand in some of the desert areas of our planet similar to those found in the Nevada desert after nuclear experiments were carried out in world war 2.
Amerindian history also teaches that there are to be seven cycles & by the seventh cycle mankind would have learnt to live in harmony with nature & with each other & that the human race would have reached the point of utopia. The author ran through the seven cycles & he is of the opinion we are probably in the sixth cycle & not the seventh! Afterall you only have to look around you at our society today, particularly western society which is based on capitalism, greed & overpopulation to realise that our society is heading towards the destruction of our planet & ourselves! Everything has to be done at 90 miles an hour today, even our leisure is based on being hard & fast! Today we live in a revolting materialistic must have society, a society based on selfishness!
Amerindian culture which is totally alien to our way of thinking but far superior in idealism is based on putting back into the Earth what is taken from it & the Amerindians never overpopulated there habitat unlike us in the west who have been overpopulated for centuries & have always had to rely on a technological fix to sustain our population levels. The author also emphasises that Amerindian society wasn't always primitive but was once very advanced like our own society, possibly even more so with heavier than air flying machines. There is also mention that some sightings of wee folk seen both in Europe & Amerindian culture could be attributed to the ufo sightings that are seen today! Is it possible that some historians have found evidence of these advanced machines that appear as ufos & that these have now been reverse engineered by the American military & this technology actually existed in prehistory?
Do buy this book it's an interesting read & very thought provoking!
A better world? Mar 27, 2008
I read this because a young member of my book group is interested in such topics (para-normal, alternative history, etc.) Can't say I was impressed. Most of the book was regurgitated quotes from other writings, and mostly out of date. I found the book repetitive and disorganized. The topics were indeed interesting--where did we come from? how much more do we have to learn about the history of the earth and of humans? how advanced were previous civilizations and how much can we discover about them? I liked the premise, but not the presentation.
Worlds Before Our Own by Brad Steiger Mar 23, 2008
The mounting scientific and paleontological evidence towards an alternative to the current world view, that man evolved from apes during the last three to five million years, is skillfully and relentlessly presented by Brad Steiger in this landmark book. It is now widely accepted that the fragmented physical evidence for the establisment view would not actually fill a car boot whereas the accumulation of what are considered by science to be random anomalous finds is quickly filling a space the size of the Royal Albert Hall. Quite apart from the evidence which is being subverted from public view the tidle wave of skeletal remains, human footprints frozen in rock strata alongside those of dinosaurs, metal tools, metal jewellery and metal ornaments all discovered in strata beyond 50 million years of age, all point to human involvement in the affairs of planet Earth on a timescale which completely alters and constantly predates the established view by millions of years. We are long overdue for a radical review of human origins and our perceptions of our place in the universe. The tipping point will come when the general public comes forward in greater numbers to question the current thesis. Anyone at all interested in human origins and the birth of civilizations would do well to get up to speed and educate themselves on the subject and what better place to start than with this excellent book.
Glad this information wasn't lost! Feb 28, 2008
Very interesting information - it makes me think that the history we're taught in school is so edited down, we may as well start over to get any kind of grasp of where we've come from. I'm glad this was compiled and preserved - it has reorganized my thinking in several areas. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that no real way is given to authenticate every case included in the book.
Straight Forward Summany of the Facts Dec 18, 2007
This little book is truly a remarkable find. Presented in a clear and lucid style, Mr. Steiger presents information concerning anomalous archeological finds without the hyperbole usually associated with this type of material.
A great deal of information is provided in a compact format. The book is only a total of 224 pages long and is a reprint by Anomalist Books of the book, which was originally published over 30 years ago. It would be nice to have an update of the information provided - has any new information turned up or has anyone done first hand research of any of the sites mentioned? For example, early in the book the author mentions that concrete blocks, as well as a wall of these blocks, were found in a seam of coal in Oklahoma in 1928. Due to a tunnel collapse, this section of the mine was immediately closed thereafter. It would be interesting to follow-up on this report by first hand reporting of the site in question.
Overall, the book is worth the money and provides a very nice overview of this topic.
