Advancing Our Case on the Web

By J. Douglas Kenyon, Publisher

When we launched this publication late in 1994, we daydreamed about becoming a kind of alternative National Geographic, but, in fact, we had no clue to what to expect. Now, though, about 18 years later, we can say that while we may still have a way to go to catch NatGeo, a not inconsiderable number of achievements have been chalked up. Atlantis Rising has now become the number-one-selling magazine in the U.S. featuring ancient mysteries, unexplained anomalies, and future science. Our books have been bestsellers…

When Far Out Is Next Door

By J. Douglas Kenyon

Sometimes artists, interested in illustrating for Atlantis Rising, send us their material; and in many cases, their work is what can only be described as very strange, maybe even a trifle mad. The motive for these well-meaning, would-be contributors seems to be their conclusion that since this magazine is dealing with really “far-out” subject matter—well beyond the bounds of conven­tional thought—we must also, therefore, be looking for art from beyond the pale. Only thus can we avoid the sin of boring our readers. We, however,…

Challenging the Consensus

BY J. DOUGLAS KENYON

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….

What Goes Around Comes Around

By J. Douglas Kenyon

One of the causes for the destruction of Atlantis, it has been theorized, was the kind of thoroughly mad science said to have been practiced in the place. Edgar Cayce, the “sleeping prophet” of Virginia Beach, was among those who spoke of strange creatures produced through the genetic engineering of that time. In fact, Cayce said, the battle over what to do with such creatures led to warfare, which eventuated in the complete destruction of the empire. Some have speculated that so-called mythological creatures, chimeras…

Personal Revelation & Public Pertinence

By J. Douglas Kenyon

Recently, I found myself explaining to an ernest advertiser why her version of “revealed truth” could not be included in Atlantis Rising’s editorial content. Her “information” she assured me came from the highest sources, meaning, doubtless, the ‘cosmic hierarchy’ itself. On another occasion, we were chastised by a well-known psychic for quoting the quatrains of Nostradamus without consulting that same psychic to obtain current (channeled) quotes directly from the French prophet himself. Still another well-known writer who claims to be the recipient of guidance from…

Egypt’s Gathering Antiquities Storm

J. DOUGLAS KENYON

In January and February, as the world watched in fascination, a relatively peaceful revolution (at least the first act thereof) played out on the streets of Egypt. When the dust had begun to clear the man known as the “last pharaoh,” president Hosni Mubarak, had been driven from power. The full meaning of it all has only begun to be fully grasped, but many unexpected consequences have already started to unfold. Not only was a corrupt dictator overthrown, but the momentous events in the land…

Our New iPad Retina App Makes Its Debut

By J. Douglas Kenyon

A couple years ago, Atlantis Rising engaged a computer programming company to build an iPad App, which enabled readers to buy and read single copies of Atlantis Rising on their iPad. The app worked, but we encountered a number of problems in managing the process, which eventually forced us to drop the program. Not the least of our concerns was the difficulty in communicating with the Russian company that built the app. As you might expect, there were significant language hurdles; but, in addition, the…
