"The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative
the day after the revolution." -Hannah Arendt (1906-1975)
Hello dear friends, fans and fellow revolutionaries,
These times of exponential change and galactic shift are
indeed challenging both individual and collective willpower
and survival! Yet the potential exists for exponential growth,
as evidenced by Michael Cremo's continuing international
appeal and dawning of new opportunities for broadcasting
radical theories of intellectual dissent across significant
As you all play a major role in this open evolutionary
curriculum, we welcome your continued insights,
investigative leads and inquiries.

REFLECTIONS OF A FORBIDDEN ARCHEOLOGIST
Overcoming the Opposition
In November 2007 I arrived in Russia to begin a lecture and publicity
tour in connection with the Russian edition of my book Human
Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin's Theory. I visited
cities in Russia, ranging from Moscow to Krasnojarsk
in Siberia. I
had many media interviews and spoke at several universities and
other academic instutions. For the most part, everything went well.
In two cities there were some problems. In Yaroslavl, professors
had invited me to speak at the history department of one of the
universities. But a couple of days before the lecture, the president
of the university cancelled the lecture after having been pressured
by outside organizations who objected to my connection with the
International Society for Krishna Consciousness and my stance
against the theory of evolution. The professors who invited me
arranged for the lecture to be held at an auditorium near the
university, and all the seats were filled with students and professors
from the university. This also happened at a university in Tyumen,
in western Siberia. Professors had invited me to speak, but at the
last moment the university president, pressured by outside
religious organizations, cancelled the talk. The lecture was then
transferred to a local branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences,
the director of which said he would not be pressured by anyone
into cancelling my talk. The talk went on as scheduled. A bus
service was set up to bring students and professors from the
university to the new venue. There was standing room only at
the lecture. A professor from the university told me that after
the president cancelled my lecture, students all over the university
were talking about it. So it would appear that in both cases when
my lecture was "cancelled", the actions of the university
presidents attracted even more attention to my lectures. I
expect these things. I am a dissident intellectual, and you
cannot be a dissident intellectual without being banned

Letters to www.mcremo.com:
Recently, many authors such as Michael Behe, William
Simmons and others, have written books... about
the theory of intelligent design. In my opinion, this theory is very
interesting. Although, some Darwinist scientists named it
"Neocreationism" I would like to know the difference between
theory of intelligent design and creationism, and would you
recommend me these books to read?
Michael Cremo responds:
The intelligent design theorists generally do not mention God.
They say they are just talking about evidence for design, which
means there must be some designer. But they do not think
science can give the identity of the designer. That must come
from some other source. Most of the intelligent design theorists
will say they believe the designer is God. But that is beyond
science, they say. Creationists usually directly say that God is
the creator, or designer. So that is one big difference. The
books of the leading intelligent design theorists are good, so
I will recommend that you read them. You could also read my
book Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin's
Theory. In one of the chapters I talk about intelligent design.
Dear Mr. Cremo,
I have just finished your all too short essay in You
are being Lied
To released by Disinformation Press. I must say
that I am fairly
bowled over by your evidence. It inadvertently linked together
several other archeological "oddities" that I have been pondering
over the years, such as the famous crystal skulls (Arthur C. Clarke)
and the geode which contained what appears to be a ceramically
insulated copper rod (when sawed in half) found and is for sale,
in the North Western United States. Are you by any chance
familiar with Book of the Damned, and other works of
H. Fort? If not, you should surely consider giving his work,
Lewis Paul's and Jacques Berger's work, a look over,
(Their work The Eternal Man was almost totally plagiarized
Erich von Daniken, in his Chariots of the Gods).
Fort was the
very first to mention some form of the "Information Filter"
discussed; although with much more light heartedness he
referred to this prejudicial reflex as a "damning" of the facts
that don't "fit" the current scientific fashion. He also mentioned
that despite their damnation, the parade of the damned refuses
to go away and continues to march.
I intend to buy all your works when I have some disposable
income, and wondered if you would recommend a good
starter book on Vedic Archeology?
Thank you for your time, and especially thank you for your
Michael Cremo responds:
Thanks for the kind words. I was happy that I was asked to
contribute something to the book You Are Being Lied To
out by Disinformation Press. I also have something on my
latest book Human Devolution in one of their other books,
called Underground!, edited by Preston Peel.
I am familiar
with the work of Charles Fort. I have been invited to speak
to Fortean organizations a few times, and The Fortean
Times has reviewed my books.
As which of my books to start with, if money is a question,
you could start with The Hidden History of the Human Race,
which is the abridged edition of Forbidden Archeology.
Forbidden Archeology is about 950 pages long. Hidden
History is about 350 pages. It contains all the same cases
as in Forbidden Archeology, but with less detailed discussion.
It does not cost as much to buy as Forbidden Archeology.
But for someone with your level of interest, I would
recommend Forbidden Archeology.
Good evening. I came across this statue of a head and have
no idea of what it is and was wondering if you could recommend
someone that could help me in determining what it is. Here are
some pictures of it. Thank you for any help that you can provide.

Michael Cremo responds:
I would advise going to an art museum in a nearby city, one that
has ancient art (Egyptian, Roman, Inca, etc. art), and see if one
of the curators could give an opinion. The marking on the top of
the head is not very clear, but it looks vaguely Egyptian to me.
Best thing is to get in touch with a big art museum. Sometimes
their websites allow you to ask questions to their experts. Or
one can go personally or phone.
