    Graham Hancock

    Jason Colavito casts a jaundiced eye on Hancock's 3 minutes. The Science Channel bumped the next episode of America’s Lost Vikings by a week, perhaps because last week’s episode failed to register in the top 150 cable shows airing last Sunday, so in the meantime, I thought we should take a look...

    It's Paedogeddon!
