The mainstream media aren't on our team, of course, and last night provided more proof of it: a National Geographic TV show based on one of the books I'm reading, Before the Flood: The Biblical Flood as a Real Event and How It Changed the Course of Civilization, by British historian Ian Wilson, St. Martin's Press, 2001.

Before the Flood has a stunning premise: the cradle of Western civilization was not Mesopotamia, but Turkey and the Black Sea. And it was centered not on gods, nor on gods/goddesses, but almost entirely on the Goddess. Furthermore, this 8,000-year-old ancient Goddess civilization was, in Wilson's words, "More advanced and interesting than anyone has previously anticipated."

As Joburgpete put it (Joburgpete is one of Amazon.com's top-50 reviewers), Before the Flood is about "a lost culture that thrived in northern Turkey before a [massive and sudden] inundation in 5,600 BC turned a freshwater lake into what is now the Black Sea, by connecting it to the Mediterranean."

But did National Geographic even mention the Goddess? No. All they presented was what patriarchal couch potatoes might consume. For example the "Northern Horizon" -- the research vessel that uncovered what appears to be the remains of an ancient town, 300 feet under the Black Sea -- at precisely the place where the old Goddess shore line would have existed 8,000 years ago.

Here's the good news: the Black Sea is saturated with deadly toxins. These devastate almost anything living but are perfect preservers of wood and possibly other organic substances. So an entire lost civilization probably awaits discovery -- the first-ever civilization in Europe or West Asia, and one based almost entirely on Goddess.

WARNING: If you go to Amazon.com to read Joburgpete's review, you'll find that Christians hate this book. They read the title, think the book is for them, read a third of it, and get smacked in the face with the Goddess. It's not a pretty thing to read their reviews ("A tedious work full of non-sense" and "Boring to read.")
