Lost Civilization & The Bermuda Triangle

Editor’s Comment In the first eighteen issues of Atlantis Rising we serialized, in graphic novel style a story called The Atlantis Di­mension. Based on a screenplay originally written in the early 1980s by editor Doug Kenyon (in collaboration with artist Tom Miller), the story recounted the adventures of a group of contemporary characters who discover the ruins of Atlantis beneath the waters of the so-called Bermuda Triangle. The action is driven by ancient events on Atlantis which unfold in the lives of the principal characters…

Telepathy: a Sympathy of Souls

While on a mission to meet with the French King Henry the Fourth, the cleric and poet John Donne (1572-1631) had a vision. He saw his wife carrying a dead child in her arms. At the time his wife was pregnant, and Donne was so tak­en by the incident that a messenger was dispatched to England to check on his wife. Unfortunately, it was learned, Donne’s wife had gone into labor and delivered a stillborn, and this occurred on the same day and, as far…

The Lost Library of Ivan the Great

Students of history, religion, science and sociology can never forgive the destruction of some of the world’s most im­portant libraries. The library at Alexandria once held 500,000 volumes before it was destroyed by Julius Caesar, and the library at Carthage with 200,000 volumes met the same fate after war with Rome. The Chinese Emperor Shi­Hwang-ti had all his kingdom’s books burned in 214 B.C., and Mao revived this tradition in 1966. From ancient Per­gamus to modern Germany, books and libraries have regularly come under attack….

Challenging the Consensus

In 2005 Inner Traditions/Bear published Forbidden History, a collection of Atlantis Rising articles dealing with pre­historic technologies, extraterrestrial intervention and the suppressed origins of civilization. The book did so well— becoming one of the publisher’s bestselling titles and already translated into several languages—that in 2006 we all decided to do it again. With the publication of Forbidden Religion that spring, Atlantis Rising offered another collection of penetrating articles by some of the best writers in the business dealing with the suppressed heresies of the west….

Unveiling the Future

Writing to Atlantis Rising, via snail mail or e-mail is the best, but not the only way to make your views known to our readers. There are also “forums” on the Atlantis Rising web site (go to www.AtlantisRising. com and select “Discus­sions”). Seeing the Future Very interesting article (“Can We See the Future,” A.R. #65) and good to see more work being done on scientific proof of the ability to see the future. Your readers may be interested to know that some scientists are coming…

Giant Crop Circle Appears in a Flash For crop circle aficionados eager to prove that the phenomenon is real and not just a concoction of hoaxers—such as the notorious Doug and Dave—there are few better opportunities than those which accompanied formation of the giant field design at Alton Priors, in Wiltshire, England on July 7 (7/7/07). Not only did the colossal pattern appear overnight but it did so while the entire area was under careful human and photographic observation. Even though the actual making of…

Do Deep Space Photos Show Alien Engineering of Cosmic Proportions? For the last four years, John Lenard Walson, an English musician and amateur astronomer living in Scotland, has been carrying his trusty 8-inch Meade telescope and a Sony camcorder to various sites in the U.K. and on the Europe­an continent in search of the best locations to photograph a series of strange structures which he has observed in space. To say that the 38-year-old Walson has produced some remarkable images would be an understatement. Clear­ly…

Time Machine Could Be Possible Time travel could be possible, says an Israeli researcher. According to Professor Amos Ori of the Technion Institute of Technology, it all depends on whether spacetime is flat or curved. Ori has developed a new theoretical model of a time machine and his work has been published in the scientific journal Physical Review. Time travel, says Ori, requires the spacetime structure be engineered appropriately, which he says is what Ein­stein’s theory of general relativity meant. Space-time can be flat, he…

Mesopotamia Not ‘Cradle of Civilization’ After All It is almost official now, civilization started in places other than Mesopotamia. Indeed, according to the journal Sci­ence civilization had its beginnings in places as far away as India and Pakistan, not just in the so-called “cradle of civ­ilization” Mesopotamia, also known as the fertile crescent, as is taught to every school child. According to reporter Andrew Lawler, “A radical new view of human civilization, extending far beyond Mesopotamia,” has taken root and in July scientists gathered at…

Tesla and Otis Carr—Too Far Out?

An inventor whose reputation was ruined in the eyes of the 1950s public may yet be vindicated. When you dig into history of either “free energy” or saucer-shaped spacecraft, you run across the name Otis T. Carr. He was forced to call his invention an “amusement device” in order to get a United States patent. At least one researcher had told me about seeing a working model of the Carr invention, but ironically I threw out the notes about those stories while downsizing file boxes…

Habs and Habs Nots

In the second week of August, my e-mail inbox started filling up with copies of newspaper articles, sent to me by my readers, about a new fossil find in Africa. Actually, one of the articles was sent to me by Doug Kenyon, the editor of Atlantis Rising. I took that as a hint he would like to see me devote a column to the story. So here goes. Is the ancient apeman Homo habilis (let’s call him Habs for short) a human ancestor or not?…

The True Confessions of Lt. Haut

In June, the famous dispute over reports of a crashed UFO near Roswell, NM in 1947 got a new lease on life from a dead man. One important witness to those controversial events, whatever they were, had previously refused to talk, but now he has, from beyond the grave. Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public relations officer at the Roswell Army Air base in 1947, and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases after the crash on the orders of the…

Getting at the Facts

In March, the French National Space Agency announced, to much public fanfare, that it would release all of its UFO files. Following the French lead, Great Britain’s Ministry of Defense soon stated it would do the same. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the government was planning to make public its own “X-files” on all UFO sight­ings since 1967. The disclosure is also supposed to include previously unreleased files on the 1980 Rendlesham Forest incident. (Also know as “Britain’s Roswell,” the Rendlesham Forest Incident…

Sky-Time

Did you know that earthquakes occur in cycles? Scientists, charting the intensity of seismic upheavals since the 17th century, have come upon “cluster years” marking the most destructive quakes. Regardless of location—China, Italy, western Pacific—there is a definite peak period, every eleven years. Interesting that the earth’s thermosphere also obeys an 11-year rhythm in its variation from 700 degrees C (at low point) to 2000 degrees (at high point). And in the same vein, the great auroras painting the polar skies give their most lavish…

The War for Planet Earth

We reported in Part I (“The Nazi/ET Connection,” Atlantis Rising #65) that, strange as it might sound, the case could be made that German advanced scientific knowledge and weaponry was supplied by extraterrestrials somehow con­nected with a purported underground civilization in Tibet. Exactly how this information was conveyed is not clear, but some argue that the connection was established through the mediation of Karl Haushofer, and that a group of monks from that underground Tibetan city came to live in Berlin to assist with Hitler’s…

Quebec’s Curious Hammer

In 1964, archaeologist Thomas E. Lee was scouting near an excavation underway near the village of Imaha, in north­ern Quebec, when he found a tall, curious monument on the desolate north bank of the Payne Estuary, 15 miles above the village of Payne Bay, near the west coast of Ungava Bay. The two-ton stone structure stands 8 feet high and measures 4-1/2 feet across at its pointed lintel, surmounted by a 14-inch-high capstone. While the pillar was a sur­prise to Lee and his colleagues, he…

Getting the Dream Thing Right

Right off the bat, Ken Eagle Feather tells me he’s not Native American, but is “white as wonder bread.” The name was given to him by don Juan Matus, the same don Juan encountered by Carlos Castaneda of The Teachings of Don Juan, A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan fame. He had it legally changed in the 1970s, during the time he was active­ly engaged with the controversial figure. “The argument as to whether don Juan is or was a real person has spilled…

H. G. Wells and Near-Death Experience

“She was not clear whether it was night or day nor where she was; she made a second effort, wincing and groaning, and turned over and got in a sitting position and looked about her…. She seemed to be in a strange world, a sound­less, ruinous world, a world of heaped broken things. And it was lit—and somehow this seemed more familiar to her mind than any other fact about her—by a flickering, purplish-crimson light.” This isn’t a description, by a Japanese survivor, of the…

The Dimensions of Infinity

We stand at a very special point in time, between all that has preceded this moment and all moments to come and, moreover, we are also situated at a very precise point at the frontier between all that is small and all that is large— between the microcosm and the macrocosm. While it may seem, to some, that there is nothing special about that po­sition, we are beginning to understand that any other place would be impossible. In this issue we feature two new DVDs…
