Atlantis and the Neanderthals

BY COLIN WILSON

Charles Hapgood, an American professor of history, became convinced in 1989 that a civilization, ‘with high levels of science,’ had existed at least 100,000 years ago. In the mid-1950s, Hapgood had written a book called Earth’s Shifting Crust, to which Einstein contributed an In­troduction, arguing that the whole crust of the earth undergoes periodic ‘slippages,’ one of which in 9500 B.C. had caused the North Pole to move from Hudson Bay to its present position. And in 1966, his Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings…

Satellite Evidence of Lost Civilization? We live, it has been argued, in the ruins of a vast civilization, too great to be seen by our lowly earthbound vision, but as we advance to higher levels, we are at last able to behold the great but lost design.

Consequently, many have ruled out the possibility of advanced civilization before the…

Apostle of Mu

BY DAVID CHILDRESS

James Churchward’s The Lost Continent of Mu is a classic book that has withstood the test of time. Like Ignatius Donnelly’s Atlantis: The Antediluvian World (first published in 1882), The Lost Continent of Mu has never been out of print. Its message, while somewhat dated, still resonates with readers interested in the occult and ancient civiliza­tions. Colonel Churchward was a fascinating man—a world traveler, and a seasoned occultist—who, like many today, was exasperated by the “experts” of his day and their myopic reasoning and narrow…
