    This book is ridiculous, utter garbage. If Scott Wolter’s first book was filled with unsupportable suppositions and madcap correlations between the Kensington Runestone story and modern conspiracy lore, this one goes completely off the rails in terms of making any sense whatsoever. I found it nigh unreadable, as the author goes off on tangents that have nothing to do with any subject he’s trying to present; there seems little evidence of any sort of editing, one topic just rolls, turgidly, into This book is ridiculous, utter garbage. If Scott Wolter’s first book was filled with unsupportable suppositions and madcap correlations between the Kensington Runestone story and modern conspiracy lore, this one goes completely off the rails in terms of making any sense whatsoever. I found it nigh unreadable, as the author goes off on tangents that have nothing to do with any subject he’s trying to present; there seems little evidence of any sort of editing, one topic just rolls, turgidly, into the next leaving the reader cut adrift in a sea of nonsense. As a student of the pop culture history of the runestone, this book is, of course, an important primary source of how people view the runestone today; connected, due to Wolter’s influence, to that whole network of paranoid, often racist conspiracy theory and paranormal “ghost hunter” style reality TV. Wolter continues to dig up interesting tidbits of the 20th century history of the stone, including correspondence between original runestone proponent Hjalmar Holand and Constant Larson, the Alexandria, MN businessman integral to transforming the stone into a lucrative tourist attraction. For those not steeped in this strange little world, though, the rest of the bizarre rambling and mean spirited griping of “Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers” is best left alone. Even if it were true that the runestone is an “authentic” fourteenth century inscription, none of it would have anything to do with the frothing pablum presented here; Oreo cookies being imprinted with the same symbology as the runestone (if you squint just right), for example, because Templar/Masons rule the world and wish to secretly let this be known by manufacturing delicious pastries with their symbols on them. It just throws everything in there! The Pyramids! Jesus! George Washington! The weird urban planning of St. Paul, Minnesota! It’s like Assassins Creed fer reals. I mean, the world Wolter presents in this book is one where everything means something and it's all connected, you guys! If two people use the same symbol, it’s not just because it has multiple meanings throughout various cultures, it’s ‘cause they’re in cahoots! It’s hilarious how little difference there is between this and the conspiracy thriller roleplaying game supplements I used to read in the late ‘90s, though in those cases it never pretended to be anything other than silly entertainment. This is trying to tell you the truth that’s been hidden from you by those evil cultural elites. From the placement of the Serpent Mound in Ohio, to the legends of the Holy Grail, these are all signs of the secret rulers of the world and their plans (whatever they are). Another thing that felt odd, Wolter’s feelings on these secret rulers he is certain exist seem strangely opaque- I was unable to tell if he actually supports “them” for making a better world, or is trying to warn us of their nefarious plans. In spite of Wolter’s constant invocation of the “scientific method” that he uses above the mushy “social sciences” of his academic opponents, there is not a lick of actual hard evidence or information literacy anywhere in the pages of this book. To be honest, I am not sure if Wolter truly believes any of the ludicrous “theories” he trumpets, or if it is a totally cynical ploy to cash in on the current popularity of fringe topics online and among the cable TV viewing public.

    Normally, when I read a book of this nature - that is, a book arguing alternative theories of history - I can appreciate the research and the thought process, and at least entertain the ideas. Not this time. This book is full of a lot of what seem like assumptions that are never explained. Now, this is the third book in the series, and I did not read the first two, so perhaps some of it is explained in those volumes, but if you are looking for a well reasoned argument, this book does not stand o Normally, when I read a book of this nature - that is, a book arguing alternative theories of history - I can appreciate the research and the thought process, and at least entertain the ideas. Not this time. This book is full of a lot of what seem like assumptions that are never explained. Now, this is the third book in the series, and I did not read the first two, so perhaps some of it is explained in those volumes, but if you are looking for a well reasoned argument, this book does not stand on its own. As an example, Wolter states many times that the hooked X symbol indicates that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had a child, but nowhere does he explain why it signifies that. (I have seen some of the episodes of his TV show, where he does explain his interpretation of the symbology, but I have yet to hear him explain what he bases his interpretation on.) Another example is the M-handshape seen in paintings and sculptures from Medieval times up until the present (even on the Statue of Liberty). It is absolutely there, no question. According to Wolter, it is a symbol of Mary Magdalene because M is the thirteenth letter, so it must indicate the thirteenth apostle, whose initials happen to be M.M. Again, he never explains why this M-shape indicates Mary Magdalene as opposed to, say, the Roman numeral for 1,000. Or, maybe it's just an esthetic convention? Maybe it's easier to paint hands in that position? I chose this particular book to read instead of starting with the first one because I have a particular interest in Akhenaten. However, Wolter says very little about him, other than his revolutionary religion was about dualism - light/dark, male/female, etc. That was never my impression of Atenism (it always struck me as more of a narcissistic move on the part of Akhenaten to shift the country from worship of the gods to worship of himself), but there may be something of dualism in there. To give Wolter credit, if he finds that artifacts have been faked, he says so. And he does seem to be very knowledgeable about geology, rocks, and weathering. Also, he sticks to the topic. He doesn't spend pages talking about his failed travel plans, or the view from the taxi en route to the site - a trap which some other authors in the genre seem to fall into with alarming frequency. There are artifacts presented that do seem to indicate pre-Columbian European contact. Academics vehemently denied the Vikings were ever here, until archaeologists uncovered L'Anse au Meadows. It only stands to reason that if they were wrong about that, they could be wrong about other things as well. The fact that actual settlements haven't been found doesn't mean Europeans weren't here - archaeologists didn't find the settlements for the pyramid builders at Giza until 1999, despite centuries of digging. Stuff's hard to find if you don't know exactly where to look. I don't have difficulty acknowledging that people from other cultures may have made it to the Americas before Columbus (certainly, many cultures had the technology to do so), I just didn't read anything in this book resembling a cogent argument for it. The book is certainly entertaining, but don't expect to have your perceptions challenged in any meaningful way.

    Very interesting, the author ties ruins and artifacts found in this country to the Knights Templar and Free masons and back to the Essene and Akhenaten.
