We're going on a Genesis Quest. Wanna come along?
Genesis Quest is a global network of over 40 scientists and explorers. We’re trying to solve the world’s greatest ancient enigmas, even if that means overturning cherished academic, scientific, and religious doctrines. We’ll deploy powerful sensors and robotic search assets that may soon be the envy of archaeologists everywhere; we’ve lined up several university labs to analyze evidence in a scientifically rigorous way; and we intend to achieve unassailable findings based on undeniable and repeatable scientific results.
But first, a caveat: WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR ANCIENT ALIENS. We’re conducting our research in a balanced way, and scrupulously in accordance with archaeological best practices, ethical standards of professional conduct, and international laws. We have no ax to grind; no preconceived ideas to “prove” by manipulating or creatively interpreting or selectively considering evidence to suit our preconceived views; and no bent for cheap sensationalism just to make a buck. Rather, we will apply robust scientific testing and analysis of evidence that has thus far defied explanation according to mainstream views, while digging up new evidence and analyzing that, in a relentless effort to uncover the real truth about humanity’s forgotten past. ...more

How did this advanced society disappear without leaving any solid evidence of their downfall? Is this a sign of a sudden collapse from a cataclysm or, like some believe, abandonment as the result of political upheaval? ...more
