In this alternative past the civilisations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and Pre-Columbian America might not have arisen spontaneously — almost out of nowhere — as the historians would have us believe. Instead we must consider the possibility that they could have benefited from a shared legacy of culture and knowledge handed down to them from an earlier civilisation — lost to memory — that was ancestral to them all. My research has led me to the conclusion that we human beings could indeed have forgotten a major episode of our own history.
I have argued that at around the end of the last Ice Age — earlier than 12, years ago — it is possible that a culturally advanced maritime civilisation flourished around the globe, primarily inhabiting protected coastlines close to the oceans. This culture was then effectively wiped out by the rapid sea-level rises — which would have been experienced as a series of cataclysmic floods — that accompanied the meltdown of the vast ice sheets that had covered millions of square miles of northern Europe and North America up to a depth of three miles thick for approximately the previous , years.
For reasons that I set out in my books, I regard it as almost beyond doubt that it is vivid and terrifying memories of the end of the last Ice Age — and of no later event — that are preserved in more than myths and legends from all around the world referring to super-floods that rose up to the height of mountains and that brought about the virtual extermination of mankind. Today archaeologists are beginning to find evidence of sites of previous human occupation far out to sea, where once there was dry land.

It is here that I believe the incontrovertible remains of a lost civilisation are most likely to be found. Was it made by humans or is it a freak of nature? When was it above water, when was it submerged? If it is artificial then what might it have been used for? These questions have now expanded into a new book, Underworld , covering not only the controversial underwater monuments of Japan but other underwater structures, and mysterious megalithic sites above water all across the globe. This work, a decade in preparation, returns to the themes last dealt with in Keeper of Genesis , seeking further evidence for the continuation of a secret astronomical cult into modern times.
It is a roller-coaster intellectual journey through the back streets and rat runs of history to uncover the traces in architecture and monuments of a secret religion that has shaped the world.

My To Read Book List
Shepherd begins the unit on evolution, school becomes more dramatic than Mena could ever imagine. Q: What prompted you to write this book? I grew up in a fundamentalist religion, and learned that Genesis was the only explanation for how the universe was created. Later, when I heard about evolution, I had to reconcile my religious beliefs with the plain facts in front of my face. Q: How did your experience with your own church influence the story? One of the things I appreciate about my religious upbringing is that it inspired me to read the Bible every day.
I love to find ways to incorporate Bible stories into my novels, as I did in this one.

But the downside of my early church experiences is that I saw how some people use religion as an excuse for their own prejudices and hate. And like Mena, I was banished from my church when I was a teenager, though my crime was far more ridiculous and less noble than hers. Q: Why do you think this topic is of such interest to so many Americans right now?
Science is messy. Science is always in your face, making you question the things you thought you already knew. For me, believing in both God and science makes sense. Science is a way of honoring the creation of our universe by discovering as much as we possibly can about it.
Evolution is part of that explanation. Q: Like Ms. Shepherd, do you need your daily fix of Starbucks before you can start writing? I absolutely must have my Starbucks fix every morning. Q: While growing up did you raise puppies like the Connor family? I wish! I had to wait until I was an adult. Last summer my good and faithful Labrador retriever died, and I had to get a new puppy right away before my heart broke to smithereens. Join Reader Rewards and earn your way to a free book!
