Lost Civilization & The Bermuda Triangle

BY DR. GREG LITTLE

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…

Has Atlantis Finally Been Found at Bimini?

By Drs. Greg & Lora Little

The location of the legendary empire of Atlantis is perhaps one of the most contentiously debated issues in all alterna­tive archaeological circles. The small Bimini Islands, located a scant 50 miles from Florida, are at the center of an even more controversial debate—especially from those who favor the location of Atlantis virtually everywhere and anywhere in the world except in the Bahamas. Yet dozens of explorations at Bimini and associated areas have been ongoing since the mid-1930’s. While mainstream archaeology has essentially turned a deaf…

Atlantis in Spain

BY FRANK JOSEPH

Atlantis has, at last, been found! That, at least, is the view of American archaeologist, Richard Freund, whose research was highlighted in a March National Geographic Channel special. “Finding Atlantis” follows Freund’s international team of field researchers to an extensive region of mud-flats just north of Cadiz and south of Seville, Spain. Beginning in 2009, Freund employed satellite photography, ground-penetration radar, and digital mapping of the vast marshlands which, he believes, conceal the lost city in Doñana Park, one of Europe’s largest swamps. The site…

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…

Exposing a Skeptical Hoax

BY DR. GREG LITTLE

In 1968 an 1800-foot long, J-shaped formation of stone blocks was discovered about a mile off the west coast of North Bimini, Bahamas, by a Miami-based biologist, Dr. J. Manson Valentine. The formation was initially thought to resem­ble a collapsed wall or a road, and the unfortunate name “Bimini Road” (or “Bimini Wall”) was attached to it. The site was linked to a 1940 prediction made by the famous “Sleeping Prophet,” Edgar Cayce, wherein Cayce related that a portion of Atlantis would “rise” or be…

Echoes of Atlantis from Homer

BY STEVEN SORA

The Homeric tales of the Iliad and the Odyssey do not add up. There was no “Troy” in Turkey until Alexander built one. There are no giant waves and major tides in the inlet of the Bosporus straits closest to the alleged Troy. There was no alliance of Greeks in 1200 B.C. as they themselves begin their history with a traditional date of 776 B.C. Nor was there a Trojan Empire in Anatolia where the powerful Hittite empire ruled and recorded history meticulously. History has…

Atlantis & The Great Pyramid

BY FRANK JOSEPH

The foreign tourists aboard our bus were worried because one of its headlights was out and the other flickered uncer­tainly. Combined with our driver’s kamikaze-like recklessness in maneuvering through the densely packed night­time streets over-crowded with cars, mules, carts, pedestrians and other careening buses, some catastrophic mishap seemed inevitable. But we were unaware that the free-for-all traffic patterns of modern Cairo represented standard driving practices in the United Arab Republic. All of us wanted to see the Great Pyramid after dark, under the moon and…

Cities of the Deep

By William B. Stoecker

The legend of Atlantis has such a powerful hold on the human imagination that it has defied all attempts by the de­bunkers to eradicate it. We are told that continents cannot sink (true enough; see below) and that there were no ad­vanced civilizations prior to our own, which began some 6,000 years B.P. (before the present). This is not true. Pro­fessional archaeologists and physical anthropologists used to believe (on the basis, really, of nothing) that fully “evolved” homo sapiens only appeared on Earth perhaps 50,000…

A King of Atlantis for Colombia

By Frank Joseph

In his 2,300-year-old “dialogue” known as the Kritias, Plato provides the names of the first kings of Atlantis. Athens’ famous philosopher tells us very little about them, although at least some have been identified by investigators with particular places, peoples, or persons. For example, he cites an Atlantean monarch called Gadeiros. Curiously, that is the same name by which the modern Spanish city of Cadiz was known to Plato’s fellow Greeks. Another member of the Atlantean kings list is Elasippos, as Portugal’s Lisbon was called…

Edgar Cayce’s Atlanteans

BY FRANK JOSEPH

Some Atlantologists are reluctant to even mention the name of Edgar Cayce—America’s foremost seer of the 20th century—for fear of ridicule by conventional scholars. They fail to appreciate, however, the seriousness with which a growing number of mainstream institutions rely on extrasensory perception. For example, no less an organization than the Federal Bureau of Investigation today provides police departments with a list of favorite psychics who have aided government agents in unraveling otherwise insoluble crimes. If such talented helpers continue to prove them­selves worthy of…
