"Enter these portals if you dare..."
18-9-2012: This website, which imagines it has some global/historical scope, wishes to say as little as possible about the multi-country furore which has arisen due to comment about the so-called movie trailer on You Tube of a badly-done movie named Innocence of Muslims. But it does appear that various groups of Muslims around the world have indeed been too-innocent (unsophisticated) and fallen victim to an unscrupulous, but very determined, Internet Troll who has virally foisted awareness of this badly-done movie onto the world stage. Something here has happened with use of the Internet that the Islamic World is simply going to have to catch up with. From Ayatollahs down. Enough said.
It has only been since 1945 that Europeans have stopped killing each other due to religious/ideological differences. Why would Muslims today want to repeat any of the mistakes about religion that Europeans have made since the ending of The Crusades? Why would they wish to avoid modernity, the Internet, and so many advances in human knowledge? It seems to this website that behind all calls that ¨God is Great¨ stands a great sense of human non-greatness held on the part of the person saying it -- a sense of inferiority. The time has come for humanity here to grow up. Enough said.

Lost Worlds - the editorial outlook - the new - a decade later, the problem of lost causes
It has to be confessed ... by November 2008 as Barack Obama became President-Elect of the USA. This website has changed its style as far as its original intentions were concerned (see above). We began with an idea of Lost Worlds, but as life has unfolded since 1997, the website has gradually been obliged to consider, for more modern times, not so much Lost Worlds, as Lost Causes. All we can say, is that we feel no personal sense of responsibility as the world has abandoned the disciplines of Civilisation (leading eg to the 2008 world financial crisis) - that is something we have tried, however vainly, to stave off, as we asked people to think/re-think.
We began in 1996-1997 with ideas of presenting helpful information on new archaeological discoveries; views on esoterica in world history, quaint items on little-known aspects of watersheds in history; items on the influence of considerations of the influence of theology in history.
But, but, Events since 9/11 have taken us over and it's been impossible to keep up. Now we have the amazing scenario where an Afro-American, albeit via Kenya, (which is real, eastern, not western, Africa), Mr. Obama, becomes the new President of the USA. This is an astonishing watershed in history! And so, this website will in future change tack a little in order to take account of this shift in what will amount to - world perceptions of matters of contemporary historical importance. Since we wholly approve of Obama, this ought to improve the website in the future. We hope so.

NB: The editor has decided that some contemporary sections of Lost Worlds - The Website will be closed at sometime in 2010. It has simply gotten too big and complex to work on usefully, and it is probably the same for netsurfers/readers. The website has been on the Net for more than a decade, and culturally, (we mean, internationally), seems to have done its job. All information already gathered for inclusion will be uploaded to the Net in due course. This decision has been taken for many reasons, but chiefly as 9/11 deflected the website from its original course. The events of "9/11" as it is called were historical in their way, and slowly led the website not into the territories of Lost Worlds, but into the territories of Lost Causes. The website then will be closed with this remark in 2010 but will remain on the Net. If any webpages are modified after the closure, that will not be for content-modification reasons, but mainly for website/technical reasons where relevant. - Ed
