Rather than being the proverbial lone voice in the desert, Dwardu Cardona is a senior member of an ever growing international school of academicians, which includes scholars from various scientific disciplines, who are presently involved in the scientific reconstruction of the events portrayed in this work. Cardona has been pursuing these studies since 1960. He has since then acted as a Contributing Editor for KRONOS and, later, as a Senior Editor for the same periodical, and is currently the Editor of AEON. He was a Founding Father of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies (now defunct), and has acted as a consultant on mythology and cosmogony for Chronology and Catastrophism Review, which is the official organ of the British-based Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. He has also acted as the Series Editor for the Osiris Series of books sponsored by Cosmos & Chronos. As a writer, Cardona has now published well over a hundred articles in various periodicals, most of them on the subject covered in the present book. He has also lectured by invitation at the University of Bergamo, in Italy, as well as at various organizations in Canada, the United States, and England. He presently makes his home, together with his wife, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
