Santorini as Atlantis

Was Santorini the original Atlantis? Some scientists believe there are some good arguments that Santorini could be the location of the City of Atlantis.  What is left of the island are the remains of the largest volcanic eruption in history over 3000 years ago.  This doesn’t match with the timeframe that Plato used but we really don’t know what edits may have occured through history. Plato tells about a circular island with concentric structures. Santorini today does have an impressive concentric geographic setting and had it also before the Minoan eruption. This has come out because of detailed geologic...

Theories and More Theories about Atlantis

I’ve been researching Atlantis for over 30 years.  Much like many others, I haven’t written a book on the subject (yet), I haven’t been on the Discovery Channel, and I have my own idea of what Atlantis was.   Much like politics and religion, Atlantis is one of the most contentious topics you will ever encounter.  First you have the division between the academics and the non academics.    Mention Atlantis in an academic paper and you can kiss your career as an archaeologist or anthropologist goodbye.   I’ve contacted several people doing underwater research and at best I got a polite thanks...

Atlantis Poem

Legacy Beneath the Sea Waters rage in purple passion Moving sands in swirling fashion Freeing treasures trapped for years Amidst a culture’s final tears Lost beneath encroaching waves There wasn’t much to move or save Only to retain the thoughts Of things the elders once had taught And hope for days when they’d return And crystal fires again will burn To teach the children of their fate Extinguishing our thoughts of hate To claim the lands free from the water Which once were those of Neptune’s daughters Restored for children soon to be Their legacy beneath the sea   For more poems – check out...

When Did Atlantis Sink?

People have speculated over the dates Atlantis sank for years.   If you favor the Mediterranean version of Atlantis, you have one date.  If you favor something something in the Atlantic near Bimini, you typically favor an older date.   I tend to lean towards the later. Many people believe that the sinking of Atlantis coincided with the subsequent rise of Egyptian culture.  Based on the research by Robert Schoch into weathering around the Sphinx, the pyramids should be around 10,000 years old.   The following video makes an interesting case.  I haven’t figured out if the location makes perfect sense or it makes no sense at all.  This is based on an inscription inside one of the air shafts.  It’s 10 inches wide and if it weren’t for a robotic camera, no one would ever see this.  It has the ring of a carpenters mark, but it also seems to say, this is when I finished.  The two seem somewhat contradictory, since the first is almost always hidden (which this is), and the later is usually displayed for people to see.  Assuming it is what it appears to be, we would have to assume that the builder was aware of star procession to the point that leaving this mark would have meaning in a few thousand years. I’m curious what others think of the conclusions in this...
