A Lost History of the Human Species –
“All this has happened before, and it will happen again” – A quote from the TV show “Battlestar Galactica” (the re-imagined version).
What they are referring to is the belief that all current technology, human achievements, and events have happened before in the past. Human civilization is simply an infinite circle that rises, falls and then rebuilds itself, again and again, only to repeat the cycle for all of eternity.
Perhaps this simple quote from a TV show is not as farfetched as one would think. Current mainstream science tells us that modern man, Homo Sapiens Sapiens, came into existence approximately 200,000 years ago.
Historians tell us that for only the last 5 or 6 thousand of those years, we have gone from living in caves to landing on the moon. In the span of 200,000 years, we developed civilization, great architecture, literature, medicine, music, and space travel in only the last .03% of those 200,000 years.
Why were humans able to make such great achievements only in the last 5 thousand years? Why not in the first 5,000 or even 10,000 years? What were humans doing those previous 195,000 years that we cannot seem to account for? We certainly, we weren’t just passing the time, hunting and screwing as our only reason for living. There had to be more to it than that.
Mainstream scientists also tell us, that ancient humans (Homo Sapiens Sapiens) had the same size brain and intelligence and “Modern” humans of today. Some would argue that Modern humans have less, but that is for another article. Now, let’s assume that the scientists are correct and humans are just as intelligent 200,000 years ago as we are today. That being the case, why didn’t ancient humans go to the Moon 5000 years after they evolved into Homo Sapiens Sapiens? I believe that is a fair question and we have yet to get a fair answer from the majority of the mainstream science community.
I would argue that our ancient ancestors did develop advanced civilizations several times over during the past 200,000 years of our existence. Logically, shouldn’t we have developed into a technologically advanced species within 5000 to 1000 years of our existence? If it took us 5000 years to go from the ice age to the moon, isn’t it logical to think it would have taken us 5000 years to go from the first human to a technologically advanced civilization?
Once humans get that curiosity for exploration and wanting to know what’s on the other side of the hill. It’s only natural for us to want to explore, travel and discover. It’s in our genes, it in our DNA. It’s proven time and again that invention, discovery, and exploration are what humans do naturally. We are curious as to what makes things tick, why the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. What are those twinkling lights in the night sky?
Eventually, we want to know if there are other tribes living among the stars, or are we alone.
Societies such as ancient, Greece, Rome, the Minoans, Crete’s, and others, developed high levels of civilization and technology for their times. They all have one thing in common. Every civilization rises to its absolute pinacol of power at some point, then begins a decline down to where it’s government, buildings and sometimes, people, fade from history. Eventually, another civilization rises to take its place as the strongest in the region or world.
But none of these cavillations developed the capability of flight or industry, much less space travel. This much is true, but these are only civilizations that developed in the past few thousand years. What if there were a civilization, say, 50 thousand years ago that did manage to develop into what we consider modern and technologically advanced. What if they did manage to go through an event like our Industrial revolution. Develop great building projects, transportation, communications, flight, and even space flight. What if they did manage to go to the Moon or even Mars.
It is certainly possible, if we did it in 5000 years another earlier civilization could accomplish even more given 10, 20 or 30,000 years?
Perhaps that civilization accomplished all those wonderful things and then began its slow decline possibly due to the coming ice age. If this civilization died out 75,000 or even 50, 000 years ago, and it was covered 20-mile thick ice, there would be little to nothing left that would be recognizable today. Everything would have been crushed and ground to powder under the massive weight of snow and ice covering most of the Earth.
Even today, there are buildings and cities that have been abandoned and in less than a century have been reclaimed by nature. Most of them are consumed by vegetation, desert sand, or rising water.
Now think what would happen to a place such as New York City if it were slowly abandoned and left to the elements. After only 100 years it would be overgrown with vegetation. After 1000 years the many of the huge skyscrapers would have collapsed into mounds of rubble. After 10,000 years, time and nature would have covered most of everything with topsoil and vegetation leaving only odd-looking mounds covered in trees, vines and other plants. Wildlife would have long since returned and in 50 to 75000, years there would be nothing much left to even dig up as all the steel, concrete and plaster had long since disintegrated into the soil.
So, in the end, there would be no record of any human achievements that we know of today. There, would probably be roaming tribes of nomadic humans trying to survive from day to day. Hunter-gatherers living as our ancestors once did. Slowly they would become curious as to what’s over the next rise or across the great waters if they still exist.
Then the cycle would logically start all over again.

The courage it took to tell a story of the supernatural that drove one to the depths of depression is to be admired. G L Davies accounts are raw, real and riveting
Jeremy Scott, Into The Parabnormal Radio
A paralogian to the paranormal is like a theologian to theology. A paralogian should have a good understanding of paranormal history, theory, & application. It is clearly evident that G L Davies not only has a real solid understanding of the different kinds of paranormal activity & phenomena people may experience, but he also understands the impact in which that said phenomena can have on an individual’s psychological well being as well as the parasociological implications for the surrounding family unit. G L Davies is a true paralogian through & through. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is a testament to that statement & a real pleasure to digest. I enjoyed this immensely.

G L Davies once again takes readers on a terrifying journey into madness and the unknown that will grip believers tightly and shake skeptics to their very core
Ashley Shannon, Schlock Tactics podcast
G L. Davies is up to his old tricks again in his latest book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. His nasty detailed and unimaginable horror scenarios will give some readers nightmares. I interviewed G. L Davies on my YouTube Show before and thoroughly enjoyed his previous work
Kevin Moore, The Kevin Moore Show
At Black Lotus, we pride ourselves in the exhaustive research we put into each of our episodes. Too often, people will not do the necessary legwork and research that is inherently required when investigating the paranormal. They simply parrot what others are saying and offer nothing new. This is why it was such a pleasure to discover G. L. Davies’ Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. Written as an interview with the previous tenants of the house in which Davies once resided, it is not your typical haunted house story. While maintaining the integrity required of such research, Davies also writes with a human compassion that is rarely found among other paranormal explorers. Amazing work! We loved it!!
Damian Gray & Ralph Torlucci, Black Lotus Media Productions
G L. Davies has done it again! Having experienced his previous work I can only say that “Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest” is the natural progression to the level of master in development of suspense & the building of shock & disbelief, all leading to the realization that these horrific paranormal experiences truly DO exist!
Kat Hobson, Paranormal Experienced Radio
G L Davies masterfully brings the terror of living in a real haunted house to life again as he returns to the Horror of Haverfordwest!
Jason Bland, Paranormal Soup – LNM radio
I had the pleasure of interviewing G. L Davies on my Radio Show many years ago discussing his first book and my listeners and I were left in awe, but I must say that his current book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest also did not disappoint. It gave me chills as read it and I was unable to put it down as I was led on a journey through this very twisted Paranormal tale. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the Paranormal and this book will definitely be put on my shows “MUST READ”List.
Christina George, Paranormal Connections Radio Show
Few of us will ever experience the paranormal in our own home. Where a place of sanctuary becomes strange and we fear for our own sanity. G L Davies takes us on a journey through the unknown with extraordinary clarity and humility. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest will appeal to those interested in the paranormal, as well as those who want to know more about how such experiences can help us grow as a person. Life is for the living, not the dead.
Claire Elliot, The Claire Witch Files
“G L Davies is a masterful author who, once again, leads the reader through a gripping account of the paranormal. Genuinely worrying and chilling. This is a MUST read and the section on the rationale behind the haunting is worth the read alone.
Dave Dominguez , – Event Horizon online Radio show
Very creepy retell of what happened in a haunted house when a married couple lived in it for a short period of time in the late 80’s -early 90’s. I am a sceptic, but that does not mean that I could not suspend belief a few times while reading about the horrifying things that happened in that house…
Giulia Naccarato, NetGalley
I could not put this book down. I found the story to be creepy, scary and at times terrifying.
Jill Long, NetGalley
A creepy ghost story just right for this time of year as the nights draw in. Atmospheric and draws you into the story and the characters
Tracy Clarkson, NetGalley
Another creepy and scary book to read from GL Davies. This time it follows the story of another couple who lived in The House years before, the things they suffered and how it affected them. The tales are horrific and awful and I couldn’t imagine ever living through what they did. Having lived in Haverfordwest for 18 years of my life, I’m really grateful it wasn’t in this house….and I’m grateful I didn’t know it existed. This is a fantastic read if you want to read a horror that’s real life….if you’re brave enough to!
I have just finished reading this book. I still have chills up my spine. I liked the way the story was set out and really got a sense of the terror experienced by Dai and Anne. Whether you are a believer in the paranormal or not, this book is well worth a read.
