Welcome to the website of John Anthony West
Author, lecturer and guide, John Anthony West delivered a seismic shock to archaeology in the early 1990s when he and Boston University geologist Dr. Robert Schoch revealed that the Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, showed evidence of rainfall erosion. Such erosion could only mean that the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present interglacial epoch, a transition that occurred in the millennia from 10,000 to 5,000 BC.

“Egyptian civilization was not a development, it was a legacy”

John Anthony West’s work has touched millions of people’s lives the world over, and fought against close-mindedness and ignorance, while promoting critical thinking on where our true history and our culture’s past could come from. Now it is our turn as a community to give back to someone who has given so much to us.

We are with you in this fight John, every step of the way.


Our goal is to raise $10,000 for John’s treatment during the broadcast – and another $40,000 during the next 7 days as we release the audio edition of the podcast. Let’s make this a reality.

Excerpt from Clay Roup’s Fundly Campaign Page

John Anthony West, the Emmy award winning Egyptologist who took on the ‘Quackademics’ and conventional dating of The Sphinx is now taking on Cancer.

World renowned Egyptologist, writer and satirist John Anthony West has spent the majority of his life fighting academia with his controversial theories of ancient Egypt. In the first days of 2017 John was presented with a new fight, this time he is battling cancer instead of the “Quackademics” (one of many JAW’isms).

For those not familiar with John’s work, one can start with his 1993 Emmy award winning documentary, The Mysteries of the Sphinx, narrated by Charlton Heston. John first hypothesized and then proved geologically that the Sphinx is vastly older than the conventional date of 2500BC taught in schools. Simply put, he has changed the way we look at the history of our civilization.

John West was adamant about using alternative methods over the extremely harsh ‘standard of care’ treatment that would be tough on any person at any age.

The great news is that John has been accepted in the renowned Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, much like John, is a genius that the establishment does not know how to deal with. The FDA has continually harassed Dr Burzynski for using non standard of care methods, even though his treatment has shown more promise than traditional protocols. His patients testimonies have led to the FDA to consistently fail in their stubborn litigious pursuits.

Most non-traditional cancer treatments are disregarded from health insurance policies, giving most little choice in the matter. In addition to being radically cheaper, Dr Burzynski’s patient case studies have detailed incredible results. Be that as it may, the majority of health care institutions do not acknowledge. This of course requires people like John Anthony West to settle his medical care out of pocket.

We cant let that stop these two from trying.

The Rogue Oncologist meets the Rogue Egyptologist, soon with your help.

We estimate the medical obligations, financial commitments, and on-hold Egypt tours for 2017 to be $155,000. 100% of all funds will go to John West and his family. We also welcome your ideas and suggestions to help out this living treasure to continue his pursuits.

Peace to you all.

The Emmy award winning Egyptologist who took on the ‘Quackademics’ and conventional dating of The Sphinx is now taking on Cancer.

Dec '16- A month later, JAWs getting dizzy spells during his Enneagram Trip to Egypt. He goes to Albany Medical for checkup and tests upon returning.

· Jan '16- Two weeks ago the Albany Medical CAT and MRI results back. As John puts it, "I got a bad read". John has cancer.

Current- This weekend his son Zeke put out word to his upcoming group that is slated for Feb 15th, which is not likely. Obviously any indications of this sort are not to be taken lightly. The promising news is that Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston has looked at John medical results and has agreed to take him in. No surprise that insurance wont accept alternative cancer treament centers, so we are starting a fundraiser for him. Graham Hancock is also involved, and he is going to help get the word out to guys like Rogan and others in the community.

All ideas and comments on how to help John are welcome. You will see a few ideas posted on the Fundly site, and please send those in. As for communications, Zeke is helping out with emails and Im also including him here. You can always give me a shout as well

Our dear friends at Magical Egypt in Oz are already well into helping :)

Eg-Update 44.0.2 Lecture with gbh

Eg-update #44a (?)

Hello Everyone,

I am (in a sense) sorry to tell you that as of this morning, our talk is sold out.

If convenient for you, you can show up at the Church and hope someone cancels out, or doesn't pick their ticket. But that's the best I can do.

The evening will be video'd however, and that should be available sometime very soon. So the information won't be lost, but it is not the same. Sorry!


Eg-Update 44.0.1 BREAKING NEWS

Hello everyone,

As of this writing 312 out of the 340 available tickets to our joint 11/29 evening in NYC have been sold.

Anyone expecting to get tickets at the door might want to book now to avoid getting turned away if it's a sell-out.


Eg-Update 44.0

Hello All

Dates are now finalized for my February 2017 Egypt Trip.

Depart JFK (or elsewhere in the Western hemisphere) February 17 2017 -- Return March 3 2017.

The itinerary is the same as the standard trip already posted to my website, except that I've added a free day, which we can very much use!

This adds $100 on to the listed price. Thus $5595 instead of $5495. International airfare is NOT INCLUDED. Domestic airfare within Egypt is included, as are many other features that are expensive options on other tours, or, more commonly, not available at all.

Many more people have inquired about this trip than I have room for. Apart from my website and this Update to my mailing list, it will also go up on Facebook, and I'll be talking about it on a few blogs/interviews coming up shortly.

If you are certain you want to go, please let me know asap.

If you can put in a deposit right away, so much the better. If not I can wait as long as I know you're definite about signing on. Just let me know so I don't overbook, or tell people there's room when there isn't.

Remember there's a discount ($150) if you pay by check or wire transfer (Wire transfer info is on my website)

Note: Of possible interest to all living within striking distance of New York City. I will be doing a joint lecture/interview there (first time ever) with Graham Hancock on November 29. This should be a lively, entertaining and informative evening. As this is written (11/18) tickets are 2/3 sold out so if you plan to attend it might be wise to book in advance. Here is the link:

I hope to see you in Egypt or at the upcoming NYC event ... or both.

Eg-Update 43.0

Hello Friends and Egyptophiles, (especially insomniacs and night owls among you)

Here is a last-minute notice that I will be interviewed by George Noory tonight 11/10/16 on the very popular Coast to Coast audio show. Actually, it's not even tonight but early morning Friday (1 AM - 3 AM) East Coast time. If you can't or don't want to (and I wouldn't blame you if the latter) tune in at that ungodly hour not to worry. The show will be archived and available to all.

Date: Thursday - November 10, 2016

Host: George Noory

Guests: John Anthony West, Kala Ambrose

Author, lecturer, and guide, John Anthony West, delivered a seismic shock to archaeology in the early 1990s when he and geologist Robert Schoch revealed that the Great Sphinx showed evidence of rainfall erosion. Such erosion could only mean that the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present epoch. In the first half, he discussed his revolutionary reinterpretation of the ancient civilization of Egypt which challenges the timeline that had previously been accepted as dogma. This is not just a question of how old their civilization was, but the astonishing degree of sophistication they had in their building of what amounts to the "most spectacular sculpture on Earth," he remarked.

Further, the temples near the Sphinx are built from stones weighing up to 150 tons slotted together like a jigsaw puzzle in a way that could not be even be reproduced with today's technology, he marveled. While West doesn't entirely rule out the ancient ET hypothesis, he finds no evidence for it. He believes a lost civilization with advanced skills, predating the known ancient Egyptians, created the Sphinx. He also talked about how the pyramids at Giza seem to be connected as part of a mysterious grand unified plan or machine. The focus of all Egyptian religion deals with the quest for immortality, he added.

         Breaking News

John Anthony West in CA September 27 - October 1 2016

Hear ye, hear ye! All who live within striking distance of Rancho Mirage in southern CA.

1. 9/30-10/2. I will be featured in the 2016 CPAK (Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge).

CPAK is always a rewarding experience with its varied cast of knowledgeable and worthwhile speakers. Google it up. I will divulge much new Lost Civilization news and discuss major developments in our ongoing Battle-to-the-Death with the Quackademic Establishment and its dreaded Paradigm Police. The Strongest Thing in the World (“the idea whose time has come,” as Victor Hugo put it) establishes itself ... only when “The Second Strongest Thing in the World” (the Idea whose time has not yet gone) has been vanquished. (Its denouement may not be that far off.) Apart from the weather and this year’s desert setting, at CPAK there is also ample time for schmoozing and socializing. Try to be there if you can.

Hear ye, hear ye! All who live anywhere else in the world where there’s Internet.

2. Prior to CPAK on 9/27 (1 -3 PM PCT) I will be one-on-one live with the irrepressible Joe Rogan on his popular, no-holds-barred podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.

We will of course be talking about things Egyptian, but also my next trip there (10/21 – 11/4 2016), the new book I’ve spent the last two years editing and contributing to: The Dead Saints Chronicles: A Zen Journey Through the Christian Afterlife by David Solomon (for more info google it up on Amazon). But we will doubtless also be ranging far afield into all manner of uncharted, and probably wild territory -- wherever our conversation leads us.

If you can’t tune into it live, fear not. It will be archived…probably for Eternity.


PS. Also, coming soon and fleshing out this Eg-Update:

Further detailed thoughts on the “S” Word (Safety) prompted by the latest terror attacks in France, Belgium and Elsewhere, which have changed the general perception of the terrorist landscape.

News from Egypt in detail. Many promising new developments. On our recent “rekky” we meet amiably with the new Minister of Antiquities and also with the Director of the immense, soon-to-be-opened G.E.M. Grand Egyptian Museum.

Significant additions and updates to the Reading List; more on The Dead Saints Chronicles.

More good news!

Robert Schoch and I have formed a production company, Akio Enterprises, (which I’ll explain in detail in due course) looking to produce both documentary (and maybe even feature) films and books as well. We thought we had the financing together for our ambitious follow-up to Mystery of the Sphinx but unfortunately that seems to have evaporated.


Nevertheless, we now have the “smoking gun” evidence we have long sought (Gübekli Tepe in Turkey) and we are convinced that we will be able to get the funding together to produce Zep Tepi and the Dawn of Civilization. It may not be long before the quackademics are smoked out of their ivory towers once and for all.


In tandem with Akio Enterprises, we now also have a plan to activate our long-hibernating but still-breathing Foundation, and we also have enthusiastic and knowledgeable people aboard to make it happen via micro, (and, with luck, not-so-micro) funding.  For starters, Schoch and I are actively compiling/writing a book about our decades-long but still ongoing Sphinx battle (working title: Dancing Down the Bridge of Sirah: A Scientist and a Scholar Fend off the Unicorns and Take On the Paradigm Police ... explanation to follow ...eventually)


Curious note: For decades, back before the computer was invented, I dreamed about a way to do an end run around the cannibals and barracudas of Hollywood and mainstream television via some grassroots system of funding. But I could never think of a practical way to make it happen. The digital revolution now makes that possible. Stay tuned! Now it will happen.


PPS. I’ve mentioned this before. Much of my time the past few years has been devoted to working with my firebrand friend and colleague, trend forecaster Gerald Celente. Most of the turbulence going on now, and which will surely get much worse over the the next few years, was predicted in The Trends Journal, which has grown from an 8 page black-and-white newsletter into a substantial full color, take-no-prisoners unique magazine.


It features art work and spectacular graphics from Eugene Gregan and Anthony Freda, two of America’s most talented artists, and articles by a number of extraordinarily knowledgeable contributors. Celente has a proven, uncanny knack for connecting the dots in three dimensions.

SEKHMET SPEAKS: Patriotism - A Second Opinion 
For those who’ve not accessed the previous Sekhmet Speaks articles posted to my website, I’ve reprinted an edited version of the original introduction, written for the ephemeral English magazine that published the earlier Sekhmet Speaks essays. The rest should be self-explanatory.  More.

A handful of remarkable books, each in its way a significant contribution to its particular field, and together providing a significant contribution to the overriding quest to demonstrate both the reality and the specifics of the lost wisdom of the ancients. More.
