Two young men
find themselves seated together at a science symposium dinner.
Each has hold of the beginnings of a profound vision. All that
evening and into the night they explore the possibilities of
this vision. Then they part and do not meet again for twenty

David Talbott traces
the great stories and myths of the world back to their origins.
He arrives at a startling conclusion: the origins of the myths
are not so much stories as they are descriptions, descriptions
of real events, events almost beyond imagining.
But once imagined -- these events make sense of hundreds of
anomalies science has been brushing under the rug for centuries,
anomalies that contradict our most cherished assumptions about
the history of planet Earth.

Wal Thornhill studies
the peculiar anomalies of the gravitational model that has been
the foundation of astronomy since an apple fell on Isaac Newton,
anomalies that have produced theories such as The Big Bang, The
Expanding Universe, Black Holes, and Dark Matter. Thornhill too,
arrives at a startling conclusion: the gravitational model is
flawed. There is a force in the universe billions of times more
powerful and more influential than gravity. Electricity.
For those twenty years Talbott and Thornhill remain outsiders,
at odds with the scientific establishment. Each longs for
confirmation of his discoveries from other disciplines.
Thornhill meet in an elevator. And each
discovers in the work of the other the confirmation he has been
searching for. Ancient mythology and leading edge astrophysics
are telling the same story. That story will shake up our
collective assumptions both about the Earth’s not so distant
past and about how deep space and the universe actually
After ten years of continuing research and collaboration,
aided by a close group of associated scientists and scholars, Talbott and
Thornhill have produced THUNDERBOLTS OF THE GODS, a
series of monographs that presents a stunning new theory, the
culmination of almost sixty years work.
