I found the latter recently at the Amarynth Bookstore in Evanston. Excited by my purchase I began to read it immediately... ...and was disappointed upon finishing its critical apparatus and beginning its first part. Temple's thesis is that amphibians from the Sirius star system visited Earth and imparted some information, possibly to the Egyptians, possibly to a culture antedating Egypt or Sumer, approximately 7000+ years ago. His reason for imagining such?: that a people in southern Chad, the Dogon, knew things about the trinary Sirius system that no one else did, things subsequently confirmed by contemporary astrophysics. From other sources I've noted that this claim is contested. Further, I wasn't much impressed by the claims advanced by Temple in his attempt to represent to Dogon, nor in his attempt to show how they migrated via Egypt to their current habitations. Beyond that his arguments depend a lot upon dubious etymologies in various languages and in what he sees as apparent similarities between the myths of various ancient cultures--none of which were very convincing, most of which became quite tedious to follow. Now, of course, I know only a tad of classical Greek and Latin, effectively nothing of other ancient languages, and I'm no expert on comparative mythology. I know enough, however, to understand what a guessing game etymology is and how fuzzy mythologetics is. At best, as with Joseph Campbell or C.G. Jung, the study of mythology can be connotatively suggestive. It is not, in my experience, denotatively exact. Thus I consign Mr. Temple to the realm of such outlandish speculators as Zechariah Sitchin.

    The Sirius Mystery “It’s aliens I tell you?” Yeah Yeah we have heard it all before. Zecharia Sitchin hypothesized that aliens came from a planet with an extreme elliptical orbit around our sun called Nabiru. The planet comes into contact with ours supposedly every 3,600 years and that aliens cam to our planet and spliced our genes. Now this is based on his reading of Sumerian, Egyptian and biblical scripture.

Zecharia Sitchin hypothesized that aliens came from a planet with an extreme elliptical orbit around our sun called Nabiru. The planet comes into contact with ours supposedly every 3,600 years and that aliens cam to our planet and spliced our genes. Now this is based on his reading of Sumerian, Egyptian and biblical scripture. Robert Temple has a more realistic theory and demonstrates his knowledge of pagan mysteries by elucidating Egyptian, Sumerian and Greek mysteries. The ancient Egyptians used to connect the Sirius star with Isis. It would disappear for about 70 days and then reappear bringing with it a flood on the Nile. The African tribe of Dogon also worshipped the Sirius star and they knew before modern science caught on that there was a Sirius B Star and a Sirius C star. Robert Temple revealed this knowledge in his book and the scientific community did not take him seriously in fact many big time organizations gave him a real rough time. His basic thesis is that several thousand years ago Aliens came from a planet that was from the Sirius star system and visited the planet Earth. They were amphibious in nature resembling the appearance of mermaids. It is from them that we get some of our earliest achievements, like building the pyramids and mapping the Arctic Circle before science even knew what it looked like without ice. These amphibious aliens existed in the water at night and then returned to their water chamber at night. Looking at some of mankind’s achievements it becomes clear that some form of higher intelligence was at play here. We cannot duplicate some of this stuff today.. Some would speculate that it was all Aliens, some would say that we are not giving ancient man enough credit. Others would say that there were human civilizations going further back in time than we realize. Some would say that Atlantis was such a civilization and then it was destroyed by some cataclysm. Robert Temple rejects all that. He has his own theory and it does sound pretty plausible especially when he shows you direct quotes from Ancient Historians that describe the merman like nature of Oannes , who came from the sea and enlightened mankind. Whether or not I buy into his theory is a big question, but I do know there are lots of planets, galaxies an star systems out there so there is a good possibility that there is life on other planets an it certainly is possible they have contacted mankind. It still need to see more proof. Could it have ben that these mermen were natural inhabitant of this planet, an in between phase between amphibian and mankind.? Could be . Robert Temple does not claim that his theory is 100 percent correct as it is just a theory. I will tell you one thing though , he has found a way to show his reader that all these ancient philosophies and religions come from a common source and he draws those connections extremely well. Whether you are into Ancient Alien theories or not this is one awesome book,

    Non-Fiction. Yes I do like this sort of thing. There's a tribe in Africa, the Dogon's who can recount the planets and others stars surrounding the star Sirius. The information that they have was not discovered by astronomers until 1920/30's (can't remember exactly). The information the Dogon's have has been passed down from generation to generation. There's more to the book than just this. Good read, again if you like this sort of book. Non-Fiction. Yes I do like this sort of thing.

    Everyone should read this,looks like a typical airy fairy new age book and I was reluctant to dive in, but when I did I realised there are fundamental and obvious scientific facts we don't get told about our existence.

    Never mind the alien theory, this book is really enjoyable. Robert Temple here puts the finger on some absolutely crucial information: Sirius related symbolism which, so far as I know, was at the core of Egyptian mythology. This work comprises many fascinating chapters namely the Oracle centres; the myth of Jason and the Argonauts; Noah's/Deukalion's ark; the number 50 in Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian lore and so on...

As mentioned already I found his alien theory a bit harebrained, although I wouldn't discard it as being complete nonsense. In my opinion he interprets some of his sources far too literally (fish-tailed gods as real physical ET's), which I find surprising for a scholar of his intelligence and calibre. What I liked though, is the flow of his writing, his sense of humour and his conclusions concerning the meaning of the Giza Sphinx. A definitive classic in comparative mythology.

    This is a brilliant book on mans' connection with the stars and other worlds condemned as being without evidence, but then so have been many sci-fi books which have paved the way with far out concepts which have come true. Sure the book is speculative but much of the information make one think seriously about our place in the universe and that we may freely travel in it with its other members if we only have the intelligence to do so.

    I had a lot of fun with this book. It's great to suspend disbelief and imagine that there really is a civilization out there. Aside from this, the value of works like this is that they bring out many things for which we have no answer. Academia needs to address itself to the Dogon and not simply wave their mythology off - vacuums have a way of being filled up. I had a lot of fun with this book.

The claims made by Temple are simply ridiculous as he confuses probability with plausibility throughout his novel. The connections he makes between the ancient civilizations of Egypt with Sumer as well as Ancient Greece are written in such a confusing manner to make them appear credible or factual but when closely examined are simply ridiculous. I do not normally review books if I do not like them but this is an exception. I am choosing to believe that this book has only been given such a high rating because everyone reviewed it as a work of fiction and in no way could possibly believe any of the well camouflaged lies.

    If you believe Homo Sapiens is likely to arrived on Earth via an alien race and want some seriously intelligent and imaginative evidence for it then this is the exceptional book for you. Many people, including the great DNA scientist Francis Crick hold the same views as explained in the novel The Royal Secret and that humanity has the means to return from whence it came. This book maybe speculative but it if so it is brilliantly done.

    Maybe it's my pea brain but I found this book to be muddled and confusing. Just when Mr. Temple gets on to a great point, he goes off on some tangent and loses my interest. He's a bit of a name dropper and likes to pat himself on the back. That said, it does pose some great questions about the mysterious antiquities of our planet and origins. Do the Dogons hold the key?

    This is a very interesting book. It goes too many details time to time but still it is very intriguing. At the end of the book, Mr. Temple is talking about how a member of the Masons approached him and showed their interest in his research. If there is another Masonic group in the Sirius system, we are really doomed.

The second third however, is the part where Temple tries to present the evidence by comparing different ancient cultures and their linguistic similarities and origins and then tying it to the visit from the Sirius amphibians. This part is really tedious to read and hard to follow, I would almsot recommend skipping it entirely for the casual reader that is only interested in the theory's premesis as a whole. The third part wraps up the whole book in a fantastic way and explains everything that has been covered in the second part only more compressed.

    This book provides a discussion on the Dogon tribe and how they possessed knowledge of the stars Sirius A, B, and C; something that should have been impossible given their level of technology and development. In addition there is a significant discussion on myth and how many of the worlds original myths tend to derive from Sirius.

    3.5 I decided to read this book because I have to do an article about the Dogons and their relation with Sirius. The book doesn't talk just about the tribe in question, but parallels the Egypt mitology - wich irritated me because it wasn't my focus, but it gave me a new perspective. I don't deny, was a hard read for me and sometimes - long times - I got caught up in daydreams. I point out this book to anyone who appreciates mythology, astronomy and African civilizations.

    I've been waiting to read this for a long time. I saw the author on H2 "Ancient Aliens" and wrote down the title of his book. His theories on the Dogon alone are so fascinating, I lost my place in history and the universe. He has rewritten history! There are many internets sites devoted to this too!! If you like the H2's "Ancient Aliens" you will flip over this work. IT's been revised, to keep it current with discoveries since it's original publication.
