Rebel historians coming to Orange County

Binary Research Institute

Irvine, CA (August 3, 2006) Three of the most renowned authors and researchers in the field of alternative history will be speaking this Fall at the "Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge" (CPAK) at the University of California, Irvine. They are:

Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, Underworld and several other titles that examine the evidence of an advanced civilization that preceded modern cultures;

Dr. Robert Schoch, geologist at Boston University, famed for re-dating the Sphinx based on the limestone weathering patterns in the monument, and author of Pyramid Quest and Voices of the Rocks;

Rebel Egyptologist John Anthony West, Emmy winning documentary filmmaker and author of Serpent in the Sky: A Symbolist View of Ancient Egypt.

The three authors are well known for their research suggesting that ancient cultures were likely more advanced than many scholars now believe.

These theorists, along several other experts in the fields of archaeology, astronomy and physics will be discussing the ancient idea that civilization moves in a great cycle from Golden Ages to Dark Ages and back again as described in the myth and folklore of various ancient cultures. The two-day event will take place in the Social Sciences Building on the UCI campus during the weekend of October 14-15.. An evening Reception will be held Friday, October 13, where most of the speakers will be available to meet in an informal atmosphere.
