Many have believed that Atlantis was a fiction created by Plato. Well Plato was not the first to write about it.
We have found a very much earlier document. It was written in 9619 BC, about 9,250 years before Plato's writing. Further, we have assembled enough evidence in terms of archeological finds and scientific facts to provide convincing proof that Atlantis really did exist. And we have found the remains.
We structure the evidence to answers three basic questions: how was Atlantis created; did it leave evidence, or a legacy; how was it destroyed?
This audio is Part I.
. . . and Folklore and Mythology from around the world are brought together to tell a story of a world disaster or catastrophe from space causing devastation and huge changes to the planet, land masses, waters, and atmosphere.
This is not one of the channeled New Age versions of Atlantis, but is based on material findings, observations, and combing through of ancient records and lore worldwide.
This is a perfect listen in conjunction with Graham Hancock's recent audio book Magician of the Gods and while Graham Hancock had a slightly different focus, there are very interesting overlaps.
Of interest, near the end, was an entirely new application of the Bible's books of Revelation and also of Job.
If you can listen to the first portions of this three-part audio book with access to Google Maps, it will be more enjoyable. The book starts with a lot of geology discussion - tectonic plates, the Atlantic Ridge, etc. and uses current geography names to point out places where changes happened. The astronomy is where there is partial overlap to Graham Hancock's book, along with some of the search through ancient texts.
Very interesting gathering of information and summarizing theory.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Only people who are advanced in their Atlantis studies.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The topic is of great interest to me, but this was very much a study class type of story.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lynn Benson?
Yes. He read it too fast and it was hard to tell when it was an end to the sentence.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
Needs to be a documentary so the audience can see the places he is talking about.
