Joseph's book contains numerous examples of cross-
cultural encounters between the Middle East and
the Americas. For instance, the pre-Incan people of
coastal Peru built similar stepped pyramids as their
middle eastern counterparts. The Sumerians built large
reed boats that could traverse virtually any wind at sea.
The Andes Mountains were accessible to Sumerian
sailors around the African Cape of Good Hope
and crossing the South Atlantic to South American
shores. Cotton used in Peru in the 4th Millenium BC had
fibers from the cross-bred Asian American plant.
The pre-Incan "Pyramid of the Kings" had the precise
correlations in architectural layout as the Victory
Temple in the Upper Nile Valley. The chemicals related
to cocoa and nicotine in several Egyptian mummies
confirm reciprocal trade between the Mediterranean Basin
and the Americas.
The survival of a Minoan Crete labyrinthine design at the
Casa Grande, Arizona suggests that Bronze Age visitors
from the Eastern Mediterranean made an indelible impact on
the American Southwest which carries over to today's
The existence of a purple shell industry confirms Phoenician
colonization of coastal S.America. This fact alone is one of
Carthage's most closely held trade protocols. Important Native
American words have parallels in Japan; thereby proving a
potential cultural or trade linkage.
Joseph's book has many pictures of ancient sites and artifacts
like Iraq's Ziggurat, the BES Egyptian god, Arizona's
Casa Grande petroglyph, San Lorenzo's Olmec Colossal stonehead,
the Zheng He statue in China, the Kanawha Madonna and others.
Joseph's book is a marvelous delineation of foreign cultures
with a connection to the Americas which transcends mere
coincidence. The work documents such connections to the
Sumerians, Egyptians, Minoans, Romans, Kelts, Hebrews,
Chinese, Japanese, Africans, Southeast Asians, Norsepeoples,
Knights Templar and Christians.
There are implications for a more scientific analysis of
these ancient artifacts. Artificial Intelligence may be employed
to categorize related archeological findings into intelligent
inferences and rule structures to determine interrelationships
which are present in the data.
