DOMAIN -- Steve Alten

I am not sure how many of you have heard of the Mayan doomsday prophesy of Earth coming to an end on Dec 21st 2012 or in Mayan calender format
This sci-fi book by the author Steve Alten is all about it. Why did the Mayans turn to cannibalism and kill their own towards the end? Why were those huge pyramids built? Let alone building it, how were the rocks lifted several feet above the ground when some of them weighed in excess of 20 tonnes?
What is the purpose of those lines (The Astronaut, The humming bird, The monkey) drawn on the Nazca desert? Why are these lines and structures built pointing precisely to the Orion belt? Are they telling us something? Are they warning the human race to prepare for the worst?
Read this book and if you like read it's sequel, Resurrection.
Both of these books are fiction neatly woven with scientifically accurate facts.

Sounds interesting! Although this isnt clear - is it purely a fiction novel or ancient-history findings types?

I like Michael Crichton for the same reason. He does extensive research and does a neat job of weaving a fiction with scientific facts that his novels sounds so real. A couple of them I've read are Andromeda strain, Prey and sphere.

Then read Domain, Meg (read it just for the first chapter), Loch and Goliath, all of them by the same author. Personally I am not into Tom Clancy books and neither into murder mysteries. Science fiction keeps me rolling. Also if you can think of authors like Alten, Crichton do let me know

I tend not to drop a lot of responses, but i did
a few searching and wound up here "DOMAIN -- Steve Alten".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd like to follow everything
fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete
urls of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
