Little-known histories and legends yet shared by civilizations worldwide may hold the key to today’s modern varied cultures.

History gives us an understanding of the past and the present and perhaps a glimpse into the future. But history is complex and covers many areas- culture, politics, art, faith, practices, and people. There is also canon history and myths, stories, legends, and lessons that are somehow known the world over. Richard Scott Rahn’s The Book of It covers history like never before. Extensive research produced discoveries that these stories, legends, and teachings guide modern varied cultures in Rahn’s book.

In a way, these beliefs and stories, which are not widely accepted as canon truth or even discussed in many history books, may hold the answer to some of our questions about early civilizations. There are several civilizations lost in time or eradicated through conquests or subjugation.

If we take a closer look at the histories of civilizations worldwide, we can see certain similarities in culture, art, and practices despite the distance and different timelines.

For a time, the world thought that pyramids existed only in Egypt. Then, we were surprised to learn that there are pyramids in Iran, China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nubia, and even as far as Mexico. The one in Iran predates the ones built in Egypt by at least a thousand years. So how come the idea of a pyramid exists in many parts of the world in different timelines?

The pyramid is not the only idea evident in different ancient civilizations, which we thought was only present in one geopolitical location. Again, Egypt features prominently on this one. When we talk of mummified dead or mummies, the first thing that comes to mind is Egyptian mummies. Yet, there is compelling evidence that other civilizations have practice embalming and mummifying their dead as well. There are also mummies in China, the Philippines, Denmark, Italy, Canada, Mexico, America, Australia, and New Zealand.

These are just some of the shared history and culture of ancient civilizations that tell us something about the past peoples, philosophies, myths, and lessons beyond what is widely accepted. And there are many other discoveries (many in Rahn’s The Book of It) that invite us to dig deeper into the ancient text, scriptures, history, legends, and other materials.

Overall, there is a great need for us to read and study widely accepted history books and research papers and works that deal with myths, legends, and ancient teachings, for they may contribute to our understanding of the present and perhaps open new doors to the future.

“I tell you what,” he said, still laughing, “If you put aside all that you believe that you know to be real long enough to hear my own story and my own thoughts about the sword and its origin, then just maybe I will tell you.” –excerpt from The Book of It by Richard Scott Rahn.

There are many truths out there that are yet to be discovered. They are hidden in songs, poems, riddles, and even cryptic narratives. Books like Scott Rahn’sRahn’s Book of It are products of years of personal research, study, and observation. They offer valuable insights, lessons, philosophies, and, most importantly, truths about our history that sometimes we overlook. His narratives provide a strand of common legends, stories, lessons, and teachings that will educate us and even take us on a journey of adventure and profound personal realization.

Who knows, we might be able to unlock present mysteries by digging deeper into these ancient mysteries.
