"Naturally, the inspiration and driving force behind the work was not academic, otherwise the book would never have materialized."
That is exactly what it is about. The passage I quoted refers to the most ambiguous "source of inspiration" possible. And if we don't focus primarily on this "inspiring source, or sources," we are going to keep our chat with it for ever…
"without any spiritual or religious interpolation"
It is absolutely impossible to say something about human origin "without any spiritual or religious interpolation" (lurking at the background), isn’t it? (And that’s the scandal all around science.)
(In passing, I think Darwinism is now utterly dead, capable only of automatic reflex-activity of a dead body, - so there is a lot of danger in arguing with it, - and that it is not academic preaching that should be “exposed" and refuted, not a Dawkins, but rather such very intelligent guys like let’s say Berlinsky. This latter, moreover, is really of a very sympathetic and engaging type of speaker…
Roughly speaking: evolutionism serves as strawman for "creationists," and vice versa. And both parties are materialist to their core. Neither of them has anything to say that were of any interest – except the perpetual battle cries.
In the good old days, evolutionists quarreled over which part of the original theory could be saved somehow. By the time it‘s turned out - because it has turned out! and today’s professionals are mere epigones only - that nothing tenable was there in it at all, the brains of the general public were already completely washed by propaganda tenets. Here we go.
As I see the business, "creationism" was a logical step as it were to keep the everlasting battle noisy enough.)

Is Mr. Cremo really a neglected person and the case he represents is really a neglected case, even at the university level? Let’s not forget it’s a bestseller that runs out of millions of copies.
I am not sure what you mean. Could you elaborate?
I just simply suppose, based on or rather confirmed by the information that the book is running out by millions, that pretty much all the student of paleoanthropology, maybe not only those poisoned already by "esoterism" of some kind, would hear of it, and if he is young enough the chance seems considerable to fall for it as well. And I think "Human Devolution
," to which "Forbidden Archeology
" seems to be only a preamble, is poisonous as hell.
