update on October 24., 2009 More than 400 laboratories, worldwide, purchased the book so far. It has been coined « The Geopolymer Science Bible ». We plane to discuss the opportunity of implementing the 3rd Edition, during the next GEOPOLYMER CAMP scheduled for July 5-6, 2010, in Saint Quentin, France (see at GeopolymerCamp. first message on Jan.

By Joseph Davidovits 20 years after the best seller book: The Pyramids: an enigma solved, after 20 years of new researches, and new discoveries, you will understand why the theory is more alive than ever, why more and more scientists agree, simply because it is the truth. In this book, Professor Joseph Davidovits explains [...]
A recent scientific study published in the renown “Europhysics News“, The Magazine of the European Physical Society, (2012), Vol. 43, number 6, described how paleomagnetism study on several pyramid stones demonstrates the validity of Davidovits’ theory on the artificial nature of Egyptian pyramid stones. Two scientists, Dr. Igor Túnyi from Geophysical Institute SAS – Bratislava [...]
In recent weeks, several internet forums discuss my involvement in a documentary made in 1991 by the American channel PBS, famous for it popular science program « NOVA » and entitled This Old Pyramid. The objective of NOVA was the illustration of different techniques proposed by experts in the construction of the pyramids of Egypt. NOVA had [...]

Mon livre Geopolymer Chemistry and Applications en Chinois. My book Geopolymer Chemistry and Applications has been published in Chinese by a major publisher, National Defense Industry Press, ISBN 978-7-118-07421-5, 2012.
I am happy to see how Geopolymer science, which I founded 33 years ago, is generating applications and innovations dedicated to the general public. BASF, the world Chemical Company is strongly promoting geopolymer technology. In an older post posted in the Geopolymer Institute on 24 March, 2011, we introduced the geopolymer grout PCI-GEOFUG (go to [...]
The revenge of the ridiculed scientists. In September 2006, my article Publish or Perish: the disease of scientific research highlighted how the 2005 Nobel Prize winners in Medicine had been forbidden for years to publish the results of their research, simply because they contradicted what was taught in the faculties world-wide, and accepted by the [...]
A new scientific analysis demonstrates the artificial nature of Egyptian Pyramid stone. The article titled: « Were the casing stones of Senefru’s Bent Pyramid in Dahshour cast or carved? Multinuclear NMR evidence » was published in Materials Letters 65 (2011) 350–352, by an international team of scientists involving Kenneth J.D. MacKenzie (MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and [...]
Mon éditeur Jean-Cyrille Godefroy rend mes livres « La nouvelle histoire des Pyramides » et « De cette Fresque Naquit la Bible » « La Bible avait raison tomes 1 et 2″ en version électronique (e-pub ou PDF) pour un prix très modeste. Voici le lien e-book davidovits

The objectives of this article are twofold. First of all, it presents one information omitted in Chapter 11 of my last book The Lost Fresco and the Bible (De cette fresque naquit la Bible). Then, it denounces an error, or more probably the forgery of an archaeological document of the greatest importance. The stele of [...]

I am presenting my 5th book on the Egyptian civilization, here in connection with the Bible, published by Éditions Jean-Cyrille Godefroy, Paris, ISBN 978-2-86553-216-2 Released on: 29 september 2009 In 1935 in Karnak, in Egypt, two French Egyptologists discover a fresco in the ruins of the memorial temple of Amenophis (Amenhotep) Son of Hapu, the [...]
This book replaces « They built the Pyramids », now out of print. By Joseph Davidovits 20 years after the best seller book: The Pyramids: an enigma solved, after 20 years of new research, and new discoveries, you will understand why the theory is more alive than ever, why more and more scientists agree, simply because it [...]
The excavations of the first Bosnian (and European) pyramids are underway. They are bringing interesting photos from the excavation site.
I have an interesting Film/TV documentary project, and I am looking for a serious producer. I discovered the most ancient genuine text copied word by word in the Bible. It is an ancient Egyptian fresco unearthed in 1935, in Karnak, Southern Egypt, dedicated to the greatest scribe and genius of Egyptian antiquity: Amenophis (Amenhotep) Son [...]
The 1st International Forum Ceramics & Brotherhoods was held on July 4, 2008, Verona, Italy, during the 2nd International Congress on Ceramics ICC2. It involved representatives of African Countries (Kenya, Liberia, Tanzania) and European scientists. The aim of Ceramics & Brotherhoods is the transfer of appropriate ceramic technologies to African Countries. I am member of [...]
The famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, USA, is supporting my re-agglomerated stone (concrete) pyramid theory. At MIT, Professor Hobbs and two colleagues and students are experimenting the construction of a small scale pyramid using my theory. Go to the Boston Globe article of April 22 2008 titled A new angle on pyramids Scientists explore [...]
Three basically different theories on pyramid construction were all validated « scientifically with 3D simulation « . Accordingly, all three would be exact and explain the true methods used by the ancient Egyptians. Actually, it would mean that none of them is accurate, because science cannot validate at the same time several theories, which are fundamentally different and opposite in their concepts.
The world press is commenting the study published by the French science magazine Science & Vie and the scientific paper released by the Journal of the American Ceramic Society , December 2006. Here some links and excerpts from major English, American and German news papers Materials Science: Concrete evidence The scientific magazine NATURE, vol. 444, [...]
It is obvious that, with his statement published on December 1, 2006, in the New York Times , Dr. Hawass, General Secretary of the Egyptian Antiquity Organisation, thought that the renowned material scientists, professors M. Barsoum, G. Hug and G. Demortier, had analyzed modern Portland cement concrete instead of the re-agglomerated (reconstituted) limestone, as claimed [...]
Walter Sullivan, science editor and writer at the New York Times, was the first English speaking journalist to write that the Egyptian pyramids may have been cast from plastic rock instead of being hewn. I have been attending the International Archaeometry Symposium, held at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island from May 18 to May [...]
In the USA, and consequently in the English scientific journals, my invention of the geopolymer chemistry in the years 1970-80 is narrated like a fairy tale. According to it, it was during my study of the pyramids of Egypt that, Eureka, I got this intuition. In America, the fundamental and applied researches on geopolymers are [...]
Last year, the Nobel Prize of medicine and physiology 2005 was awarded jointly to Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, two Australian researchers who discovered the role of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori in the formation of stomach or duodenum ulcers. Before Marshall and Warren identify this bacterium, at the beginning of the Eighties, way of life [...]
It is with sorrow that I learned that my friend Georges Grimal died at the age of 98 years. The majority of our scientific colleagues, engineers and students, know at least one of his works of Art created with geopolymer.
Continuing my visits to the Czech scientific institutions, I met with Professor Miroslav Verner, professor of egyptology, director of the Czech Institute of Egyptology.
The oldest prehistoric statue, the Venus from Dolni Vestonice (Czech Republic), made out of a ceramic of the geopolymeric type, manufactured at 300-400°C, in an open wood fire.
