July 22, 1998 - We updated our links page and the text-only version of our catalog of books and videos which were both sadly out of date.

We have added a page of links at the request of some of those who have kindly listed our site on their pages and to keep up with standard World Wide Web practices.

May 8, 1996 - As a result of the NBC special, "The Mysterious Origin of Man," the January printing of 2,000 copies of Forbidden Archeology was all sold out. Moveover, there are 2,500 backorders. The book will be reprinted and will be available sometime in June. There are, however, still copies of the abridged version entitled Forbidden Archeology and anomalous archeology in general on newsgroups like, sci.archeology, alt.archeology, and sci.anthropology.paleo. A lot of the negative responses were just name-calling, but others seriously considered the evidence presented. Many people spoke up against the Texas footprints, which we didn't include in Forbidden Archeology because we were doubtful of their veracity. People also objected to the Calaveras skull, which we described in Forbidden Archeology as having evidence "so contradictory and confusing that although the skull could have come from an Indian burial cave we might regard with suspicion anyone who comes forward with any kind of definite conclusion." People wanted more information on the grooved spheres from South Africa, and so to satisfy them the Forbidden Archeology section on that find is this week's feature.

February 25, 1996 - At 7:00 p.m. there is a NBC special called "The Mysterious Origin of Man." Topics mentioned in Forbidden Archeology will be among those discussed, and there will be clips from an interview with the authors of that book.

February 18, 1996 - In light of next Sunday's NBC special on the mysterious origin of man, our feature for the week is just one of many of the well-documented pieces of evidence discussed in Forbidden Archeology showing modern man is older than commonly thought.

February 7, 1996 - We finally uploaded the second chapter of Vedic Cosmography and Astronomy as our sample chapter of this book and our feature for the week. This chapter discusses how the Vedic description of reality implies the existence of higher dimensions which are inaccessible to our present senses.

February 1, 1996 - We finally scanned in the concluding chapter of Origins. Thanks go to Philip of Orlando for reminding us about this. The chapter will constitute this week's feature.

January 24, 1996 - This week's feature is "High Technology and the Ground of Being", a nice article by Richard Thompson discussing physics, the origin of complex life forms, the cause of the order in the universe, and more.

January 17, 1996 - There was supposed to be an NBC special on the mysterious origin of man tonight. We didn't see it here in Alachua and are checking with NBC to see what happened. Topics mentioned in Forbidden Archeology will be among those discussed, and there will be clips from an interview with the authors of that book.

January 15, 1996 - This week's feature is "The Computerized Mr. Jones," an article by Richard Thompson from BTG magazine dealing with consciousness and how consciousness cannot be explained with a mechanistic model. An alternative explanation is given.
