The Story of Atlantis

The Story of Atlantis


Another idea that is fatal to the Evolutionary Fable is the legend of Atlantis.  The Legend of Atlantis suggests that a continent with a highly advanced civilization once existed where the Atlantic Ocean now resides.  

That Atlantis was destroyed by a major cataclysm is also part of the Legend, so the Evolutionists are apt to suppress research into ancient civilizations for two reasons: 

1.) because their interpretation of the sub-human or pre-human nature of the cave-dwellers has been sold as part of the steady advance of evolution; and 

2.) the factual existence and subsequent decline of a highly advanced civilization, many thousands of years ago, raises the question of “How many such advances and declines have there been in pre-history?”  

They don’t want anybody thinking this way.  

Even more billions of years of “evolution” would be necessary once such catastrophes and pre-historic civilizations are conceded.  The uniformitarian presuppositions are up for grabs, once the uniformitarian model is shown to be defective.

The scientific establishment has done its utmost to suppress the Legend, but the Legend won’t go away.  

The reason it won't go away is because the Legend is true.  The archeological, geological and even botanical evidence all tell the same story: the earth has endured many planetary catastrophes.  

One catastrophe in particular almost wiped out all human life.  The consensus of the catastrophists is that this catastrophe happened around the year 10,500 BC.  

This was not Noah’s Flood.  Noah’s Flood happened around 3200 BC.  Unlike the 10,500 BC event, Noah’s Flood did relatively little damage to the planet.  

In fact, virtually all known civilizations that existed before the Flood survived it.  There are over 800 stories of this Flood from various widespread cultures and tribes in many different languages; and anthropologists and historians have all recorded that far-flung, indigenous peoples had these stories before the well-traveled White Man arrived on the scene, so it is not true that these cultures copied the myth from one central source.  

The “myth” is a world-wide, ancient phenomenon, universally recorded by every culture.

It is important to understand that we are talking about two separate cataclysms, not one.  Sometimes the Atlantis story is also referred to as a “flood.”  That is because the sinking of Atlantis caused enormous tidal waves to circumnavigate the globe.  

Tidal waves can approach a height of 100 ft, with storm surges going much higher, as the wave washes up into steep river valleys.  Conceding the probability that a majority of the world’s population lived near the seashore and inland along the rivers, those who survived such an event referred to it as a “flood.”  Within Christian Identity, we often refer to “Two Floods.”  

I intend to show that the first of these two floods was actually a global tsunami.  Some of those who write about “the Flood” fail to distinguish between these two separate events.  

Thus, prehistory and history are commingled and condensed into an impossible scenario, such as Creationism, which cannot explain how human relics appear far beneath the 4,000 BC strata.  Creationists teach that the Earth, and everything in it, is a mere 6,000 years old!   Failure to understand that we are dealing with two separate events 7,000 years apart leads to nothing but confusion.

To add considerable intrigue to our dilemma, both the Creationists and the Evolutionists, in my opinion, have been hired by our Adversary to intentionally distort history, so that we are unable to make sense of the past.  

Our Adversary does not want us to understand our past.  He is afraid that, if we do, we White People might awaken from our Scriptural and historical amnesia.  

This is why the False Dichotomy between Science and Religion exists, because our Adversary wishes to distract us with fables that have no bearing on True History, Archeology, Science, or the Bible.  

The more time we waste arguing across the aisle over this False Dichotomy, the more powerful the Adversary becomes.  It is all part of his divide and conquer strategy.

I will do my best in this essay to correct their errors.

The First “Flood”

The Legend of Atlantis has been preserved in Plato’s Critias.  I will occasionally make reference to that work to show that it is essentially an accurate story of what happened 9,000 years before Plato.  

Therein, Atlantis is described as having existed “beyond the pillars of Hercules,” that is, beyond the Strait of Gibraltar in the Atlantic Ocean.

To make the story credible, it must be shown that planet Earth was once a much different place in the year 11,000 BC.   

The cave-dwellers have left us drawings of many of the now extinct animals that existed then.  The earth was in the grip of an Ice Age, which forced most animal life toward the Equator.

For the existing species, all of this changed dramatically in the year 10,500 BC, as archeology and geology clearly demonstrate.  According to Otto Muck, in his book, The Secret of Atlantis, our planet was hit by a gigantic asteroid in or around that year.  

This asteroid was so huge that its impact not only sunk Atlantis, it nearly destroyed everything on this planet, so thorough was the devastation.  On impact, the continent that was Atlantis sustained a direct hit, a blow that drove most of it under water.  

Having pushed a continent under water, the earth’s crust buckled and heaved around the whole perimeter of what is today the Atlantic Ocean, causing earthquakes and volcanic eruptions to occur where tectonic plate met tectonic plate, and where continental shelf met continental shelf.  

The tidal wave caused by this impact pushed south past South America and Africa, sweeping around both capes into the Pacific, west from South America and east from Africa, inundating all coastal areas on the planet, drowning millions of inhabitants.  

It would also have pushed north, through the North Sea, over the North Pole and down across the Pacific Ocean from the north.  Thus, the two tidal waves would have met somewhere in the middle of the Pacific.  We can only guess how high these tidal waves might have been.

Since this “flood” was actually a global tidal wave, I will refer to it as such, or as a tsunami.  This seismic tsunami was a true Mass Extinction Event, or MEE, as I will call it in this study.   

Thus, this MEE is distinguished from Noah’s Flood, which was actually more local in character than the 10,500 BC Impact Event.

Ultimately, this information will help us to see Genesis, Chapter 1 in an entirely new light, not as a Creation Story, but as a Survival and Re-Creation Story.  That analysis will be contained in the “Enmity, Part 3.”

In the Introduction to The Secret of Atlantis, Peter Tompkins, summarizes Muck’s thesis with these words:

“According to the evidence, a cataclysmic event brought about the end of the last geological era and ushered in the present.  In one terrible day and night, so goes the charge, a rift was opened in the Atlantic bottom, from Puerto Rico to Iceland, into which the island of Atlantis, 400,000 square miles of mountains, fertile plains and tropical fruitland, as Elysian as Hawaii, was dropped three thousand meters to be submerged in boiling magma.

“Great tidal waves, asphyxiating gases, and a blanket of lava are said to have extinguished all life, leaving nothing but a mysterious widening of the mid-Atlantic ridge, with nine small islands, the tips of mountains that had once risen higher than Mount Blanc, our present Azores.

“It put an end to Eden.”  -- p. ix, Peter Tomkins, author of Secrets of the Great Pyramid.


Of course, the Biblical Eden came later, as the planet Earth was recovering from the Mass Extinction Event.  Nor was all life extinguished.  There were survivors, which the textbooks call “cavemen.”  

The old myths always say that such events are precipitated upon humanity because the “gods were angry.”   

Indeed, I will show, toward the end of this chapter, that Yahweh himself must have been angry with the sins of a once mighty, technologically advanced, colonial empire, complete with stories of flying machines, submarines and sophisticated science, that had degenerated into slavery, genetic engineering, and race-mixing.  

Unfortunately, we see this history repeating itself again today, as our civilization is showing the same signs of degeneration that caused the destruction of Atlantis.

I will show that this type of degeneration was the very same reason why Yahweh brought about the Flood of Noah, and the same reason why Yahweh is going to judge this planet one more time.  

We can see these same crimes against nature are being committed by both the various priesthoods and the scientific elite.  Today, we are seeing a replay of the prelude to the destruction of Atlantis and the Flood of Noah.  

There is no reason to doubt that we are going to have to face another Mass Extinction Event, which the Bible calls the “Great Day of the LORD,” which I believe corresponds to the Mayan End Date, or the MED, Dec. 21, 2012.  Since this MEE has Biblical implications, especially in the Book of Genesis, Chapters 1-3, let us take a hard look at what geological evidence presently exists.

The Geological Record

Most of what has been written about Atlantis is speculation and hokum, although Solon’s report in Plato’s Critias bears the ring of authenticity, as it describes the Mediterranean as a mere bay compared to the Atlantic Ocean, which, for its time, was a geographically precise statement.  Understanding that most of mythology contains a grain of truth, no one besides Otto Muck has done a scientific study of Atlantis.  In Muck’s own words:  “It is the scientific aspect that has been neglected.”  (p.14.) 

The suppression of Otto Muck’s book, The Secret of Atlantis, is a triumph for the obfuscationists, those who wish to obscure not only history and pre-history but also science and religion as well.  Unless we understand the past, we cannot make sense of the forces that have created our present world.  Otto Muck, more than any other researcher of Atlantis, has put the puzzle pieces together so well that the story cannot be denied.  Rather than dealing in myths and legends, his approach to the subject is entirely scientific, leaving little to speculation. 

It is an archeological fact that there is a stratum of earth that contains relatively few artifacts and remains.  This stratum exists between strata, above and below, that contain many artifacts and remains.  How do we account for this stratum, which has few artifacts, fossils, etc.?  Concerning this artifactual “gap” in the record, beginning with 10,000 BC to about 5,000 BC. Muck states, on page 43:

“Such comparison reveals, contrary to the prevailing idea of an uninterrupted progress of civilization, a regression of the later Mesolithic artifacts from the earlier Late Paleolithic ones.  This has been acknowledged and the Mesolithic epoch has been described as a ‘hiatus’ or intermediate period, a temporary setback coming between two widely differing cultural epochs of the Glacial Late Paleolithic and the postglacial Neolithic Age.  

This setback can only be interpreted as a consequence of a disturbance of life which also manifested itself in a wide variety of findings.  Archeological evidence confirms, not the hypothesis of undisturbed cultural progress, but the opposite: the aftereffect of a profound upset contemporaneous with the transition from the glacial to the postglacial climate…

A change of climate so radical that it caused ten-thousand-year-old land glaciers to melt must inevitably have had a profound effect on the living conditions of the people existing in that period of transition.  And it is equally clear that such an enormous upheaval, which fundamentally changed the climate of the whole world, cannot have come about in the natural course of everyday events, but was almost certainly cause by a catastrophe.”

According to standard geological reckoning, we are living in the Holocene era, which is reckoned from 8,000 BC to the present.  Previous to this was the Pleistocene era, reckoned from 1.8 million years ago to 8,000 BC.   

The formal division of these epochs into this present system is highly speculative and cannot be considered realistic.  

All dating methods, no matter how sophisticated, are subject to the presuppositions and biases of scientists.   It is clear to me that this fantastic guesswork, requiring millions and billions of years of geological time, is a function of the Fable of Evolution, which DEMANDS exaggerated sequences of time.  

Such exaggerated periods of time are absolutely necessary for the theology of evolution to be even remotely possible, given the fact that mutations and hybrids are almost universally infertile.  

The fact that fertile hybrids have never been observed to evolve into a higher species is more evidence against evolution.  This leaves genetic mutations as the only possible vehicle of evolution; and there is no evidence for this either.   Modern “science” has done everything it possibly can to prop up the Fable of Evolution.  

That fable is in the process of being demolished.  The fact is that scientists have NO IDEA how old the earth really is.  You can flush all those estimates of millions of years down the toilet.  They are utterly meaningless.  These are just big numbers used to mold impressionable minds.

It is scientific mumbo-jumbo.

In analyzing the geological and archeological evidence for this undeniable “hiatus” in the archaeological record, which divides the Pleistocene from the Holocene eras, Muck has found that isolated mysteries can be explained, such as why the Sargasso eels swim all the way across the Atlantic ocean from the Caribbean, then up the rivers of Europe, like Pacific salmon do to give birth.  This mystery is solved by the fact that there used to be dry land where there is today only open ocean.

You will be astounded as to how much evidence there is for the catastrophe and how much of the current natural world is explained by the catastrophe.  Here is some of the evidence he had presented:

The Gulf Stream and the Isothermic Record

Otto Muck presents geothermal evidence, coupled with the terminal moraine evidence on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, that the Gulf Stream, which warms Britain, Ireland, and northwestern Europe, did not exist prior to the sinking of Atlantis.  An isotherm is a mathematical average that tells us at what latitudes a given temperature predominates.  

The isotherm that warrants our consideration here is 32 degrees, Fahrenheit, which is, of course, the freezing point of water.  Both hemispheres always have a rough latitude where the ice does not melt, because, as you move toward each pole, you reach a level where the temperature constantly hovers at or below the freezing point.  That line of latitude is the 32 degree isotherm.   

In the northern hemisphere, the 32 degree isotherm presently runs through northern Canada, eastward past Greenland, then sharply north as the waters of the Atlantic Ocean are warmed by the Gulf Stream.   This isotherm today cuts across the North Sea, entering Europe slightly above Norway and Sweden, from where it gradually dips southward into Europe as the effects of the Gulf Stream begin to diminish.

But this pattern was not always present.  During the last Ice Age, glaciers slowly glided across the terrain, pushing debris in front of them.  These deposits of debris are called terminal moraines.

Muck presents evidence, from geothermal records, tree growth patterns, fossil records, etc, that show that our current isotherm suddenly replaced an older isotherm, which was at one time much further south and cut directly across the Atlantic, entering Europe in southern England, approximately where London is situated, then entering central Europe, cutting straight across France and Germany, into Eastern Europe.  The terminal moraine evidence of the past clearly shows that glaciers in America advanced as far south as the Wisconsin/Illinois border.  

The present Great Lakes, which contain one-fifth of the world’s fresh water supply, were fed by this melting ice.   Europe contains the same type of evidence, from the last Ice Age, showing that the glaciers advanced only so far south, pushing moraine debris southward, but then abruptly halting and beginning a period of retreat.  

In Europe, the ice sheet covered all of Britain.  In Germany, it would have advanced as far south as Berlin.  Europe, in those days, was not habitable by human beings, because of the cold.  Only occasional forays by hunter-gatherers from south of the Alps were possible.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here is a site that depicts the current gulf Stream flow:  http://library.thinkquest.org/25245/atlantology/azores.html

Before the Gulf Stream existed, Western Europe was a much colder place. The available evidence suggests that the Gulf Stream did not exist in those days.  The best explanation for this fact is that there was, at one time, a huge tract of land which stood in the way.

Muck’s thorough analysis of the Gulf Stream includes an analysis of the Atlantic Ocean bottom, which shows that the eastern, or African, ridge that runs between the full length of Africa and South America, from Iceland to Antarctica, is an average of 6,000 feet higher than the western side of the ridge.  

Muck concludes, from the isothermic evidence, that, Near the Azores Islands, this submerged continental shelf once stood in the way of the Gulf Stream, thus preventing its northward flow. As he explains it,

“The total glaciation of northwestern Europe presupposes the existence of an Atlantic barrier island blocking the flow of the Gulf Stream.

“This much is certain and it is vital to the solution of our problem…

“For some reason this land mass sank about 2 miles [gulp!!!!! – Eli], causing the broadening of the Atlantic Ridge…When was it that this barrier to the Gulf Stream submerged?

“This question is no longer very difficult to answer.  The barrier existed during the Quaternary Age and came to an end with the end of that era.  So, the sinking of Barrier Island X is contemporaneous with the end of the Quaternary or Diluvial Age.”

That sunken barrier is today known as the Azores Plateau, a relatively flat piece of submerged real estate, that used to be part of Atlantis.  Certainly Muck’s geological timing for this event is confirmed by the known scientific facts.  From an orthodox research site, I quote:

“The Quaternary Period has been one of extraordinary changes in global environment as well as the period during which much of hominid evolution took place.
“Since the middle of the l9th century geologists realised that during the most recent period of geological time (widely known as "The Ice-Age") there had been large changes in the landscape and the environment. Indeed it was widely accepted by the 1860s that the action of glaciers had profoundly altered the surface of the earth over wide areas, including most of northern Europe and North America. Modern scientific techniques have given us great insight into the scale and timing of the climatic changes that led to the expansion of the global ice caps to three times their present extent, causing glaciation in formerly unglaciated regions.   (Source: http://qra.org.uk/what.html )

Orthodox geology knows that a great change happened, but they have no idea why.  Based on the estimates of various paleontologists and geologists, averaging their values, Muck estimates that the mean date of the cataclysm was around 10,000 BC.  Note that this site falsely claims that “much of hominid evolution took place” during this period.  Where is the fossil evidence for this claim?  Evolutionists get away with making such absurd pronouncements, as long as they know that no hominids will throw rocks at them for telling bold-faced LIES!!!! 

The Mystery of the European Eels

The breeding ground for the European eel is the Sargasso Sea, an area of dense seaweed just east of the Bermuda Triangle, just south of the Gulf Stream, where that stream begins to head northeast towards Britain.  The life cycle of these eels begins in the Sargasso Sea.  At some point, these eels must travel 3,000 miles from their seaweed swamp to Europe.  Having reached the shores of Europe, the females leave the males behind and swim up into Europe’s rivers.  The reason they do this is because the females cannot mature sexually in saltwater.  They have to stay in fresh water for two years in order to mature, while the males wait patiently for them to come back down from the rivers to rejoin them.  Then the males and females swim all the way back to the Sargasso Sea, where they can mate.

The mystery is: Why such an enormous distance?   The hazards of swimming back and forth for 6,000 miles are great, as predators pick them off going both ways.  {A modern website that deals with this mystery can be found here: http://jeb.biologists.org/cgi/content/full/208/7/1329 }

Muck’s explanation is this:  Before Atlantis sank, the Sargasso Sea was much closer to  fresh water rivers.  Today, the eels, driven by instinct, latch onto the warm current of the Gulf Stream and keep on going until they sense fresh water coming from European rivers that dump into the sea.  12,000 years ago, this was a distance measured in miles, a few hundred miles, at most.  After Atlantis sank, that distance increased to 3,000 miles.  That these eels have survived this change in environment is remarkable.  It is a testament to both their desire to live and mate, plus their swimming ability.

The Atlantean Origin of the Pyramid Structures

The surviving peoples of the Americas have legends that tell us that the pyramid builders came to their land, by sea, from the east.  The surviving European and African legends say that the pyramid builders came from the west.  Almost without exception, the indigenous Americans referred to these people as “the bearded White men.”  Near Bimini, divers have reported ancient stone roads under water.

http://www.crystalinks.com/biminiroad.html http://www.joytravelonline.com/quest1.htm  

Others claim to have seen the tops of underwater pyramids.  How do we explain the fact that these ancient pyramids exist on both sides of the Atlantic and under Atlantic waters?

There are two possible explanations: 

1.) A pyramid building people flourished on one side of the ocean or the other, crossed the ocean, and began building pyramids on the other side of the ocean; or, 

2.) An inhabited continent or island existed  between these continents.  Since the legends from both sides of the ocean say that the builders came from the somewhere between the two known land masses, then option #2 actually has historical evidence.  

The original homeland of the pyramid builders was between the two present hemispheres.  Though most of these stories are shrouded in mythology, the direction from which the “gods” came is subject to verification.

Such similarities of structure, between the pyramids of the Yucatan and the pyramids of Egypt, suggest a common origin.  Their age also suggests that a pre-MEE civilization existed, which was capable of such massive construction projects.  

The Great Pyramid of Egypt defies explanation as to how it was built.  Blocks of stone, weighing up to sixty tons, had to be moved over miles of difficult terrain in order to be placed high up on this structure.  Modern engineers and scientists are at a loss to explain how it was constructed.

Dr. Robert Schoch, a geologist, who analyzed the Sphinx, located near the Great Pyramid, estimated the age of the Sphinx to be possibly older than 8,000 BC.  One of the main reasons for his conclusion was the fact that the Sphinx bears clear indications of vertical erosion caused by rain, which could only have occurred during periods of intense rainfall.  The Giza Plateau has been arid desert for well over 4,000 years.   

There was a time when the Sahara Desert was not nearly as extensive, when rainfall was more prevalent.  The Sahara climate then had to be much more tropical instead of arid.  This fact takes us well back into pre-history.  {Here is Dr. Schoch’s extensive analysis: 

http://www.robertschoch.net/Redating%20the%20Great%20Sphinx%20of%20Giza.htm

The Planetary Grid System

Not only does the ancient world show evidence of great technological wonders, it is quite obvious that there was, at one time, a civilization so advanced that they knew the distance from the earth to the moon, the earth to the sun, Pi, Phi, and many other mathematical concepts.  

All of these factors were known then and have been recorded and built into the structure of the Great Pyramid.  These astonishing details can be accessed by consulting any of the writings of the pyramidologists.  Just type the word pyramidology into your browser and you will get a wealth of detail, both pro and con.

Why is this information ignored by the mainstream scientist?   The fact is that nobody wants to upset the apple cart.  There are too many false theories of history, science, archeology, geology, etc, that would require every scientific textbook to be rewritten, if these facts were given recognition.  

But the main reason, as I have already alluded to, is the fact that the theology of evolution must be maintained at all costs; and the possibility that a civilization, which in some ways may have been more advanced than our own, cannot be allowed into the halls of academia.  Their agenda is too firmly entrenched.

One evidence for the superior knowledge of these ancients is the Planetary Grid System.  The fact is that the entire globe was mapped out, probably by the Atlanteans, like a geometric sphere, with the Great Pyramid being the focal point of this geometric system.  Dowsers call these lines ley lines.

Virtually all of Europe’s cathedrals have been built on top of these ley lines.  Since many of these structures were built on top of the ruins of older structures, it is hard to say when the first such monuments were built.  But the evidence is that this system of ley lines dates well back into prehistory.  The planet is riddled with these lines, and most of the pyramids are built on the intersection points of this grid system. 

Here is a good link itemizing the many megalithic monuments of the ancient world that are built upon the intersection points of this grid system.  

http://www.vortexmaps.com/htmla/megalit1.htm

Stonehenge is one of those monuments.

There are two possibilities:  

1.) Either this grid system represents a natural energy flow emanating from the planet, and the ancient monument builders had a method of detecting this energy, thus choosing these sites for monument building; 

or 

2.) Someone designed this system and began placing those megalithic monuments all over the world, as some kind of enormous energy/observatory project.   

For obvious reasons, neither the Creationists nor the Evolutionists want to touch this subject!!!!  

That this system predates Adam and Eve is obvious.  

That it is of intelligent design is also obvious.  That the scientific knowledge required to either recognize this type of energy or to design such an enormous, planet-wide construction project is mind-boggling, under current assumptions about the primitive state of the ancient world.

For an overview of this subject, this article by David Hatcher Childress is very good: 

http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/antigravityworldgrid/ciencia_antigravityworldgrid01.htm

Given such current knowledge about the advanced science and technology of the ancient world, it is nothing short of scandalous that official, establishment science remains in total denial regarding this ancient civilization.  

But grant money flows only to those who promote the status quo.  Consequently, real knowledge of the ancient world must be garnered from independent researchers, who are not part of the international, corporate New World Order.

I’m sure there are whispers of such knowledge within the halls of academia; but nothing will change until the current economic status quo of research funding is either abolished, dissipates, or collapses.  In the meantime, our view of the ancient world must be adjusted and timelines recalibrated to the realities of the facts that I have presented here.

Otto Muck’s book contains much more evidence than what I have cited.  His book is a wealth of scientific fact, not speculative interpretations of mythology.  Unfortunately, The Secret of Atlantis is out of print.  Used copies are available online, however.  Just do a search at any online bookstore, or maybe you’ll get lucky and find one at a used book store.

Phaeton, the Killer Asteroid

Given the astounding scientific details presented by Otto Muck and a few others, we can now piece together the events of that fateful day, the Mass Extinction Event.  Solon, in Plato’s Critias, gives this astronomical body a name: Phaeton.  Phaeton is the killer asteroid that nearly wiped out all life on planet Earth.

From the evidence we have, Phaeton approached our planet from a northwesterly direction, descending over what is today known as North America.  The trajectory was southeast, probably from Minnesota toward Georgia, down US Highway 41.  

As the asteroid, Phaeton, lost altitude, it heated up, causing the surface of its rock and iron mass to glow red, in turn causing explosions of giant shrapnel to shred the area below.  

Its azimuth was aimed directly at the area we today call the Bermuda Triangle. 

It is possible that the anomalous geomagnetic events, that are associated with the Bermuda Triangle, are a result of the great mass of iron ore that still lies buried under the mud and sand of the Caribbean.  

People who enter this zone often report that their compasses go haywire.  Squadrons of aircraft, ships and boats have become lost in this zone, because of these magnetic anomalies.

As Phaeton descended closer to the surface, over Kentucky and Tennessee, large chunks, which could be called meteors, broke off and impacted into the soil of southeastern Georgia, the Carolinas, and northern Florida, leaving oblong impact craters that are still visible today as oblong lakes and depressions, with chunks of Phaeton, given its trajectory, residing at the southeastern end of each of these craters.  {Here is an updated report which tends to confirm Muck’s analysis of the origin of these oblong “bays,” as they are called today:  http://www.georgehoward.net/cbays.htm }

The land mass of Atlantis, being, in my opinion, a westward projection of today’s Europe into the Atlantic Ocean, lay to the east of Phaeton.   This super-hot mass of iron and rock, possibly ten miles in diameter, impacted into the then shallow waters of today’s Caribbean, striking the southwestern edge of the continental shelf of Atlantis.  This impact was so powerful that it crushed this continental shelf, breaking it off from Europe, driving it deep under water.  The asteroid itself probably buried itself into the molten mass of magma that underlies all of the earth’s surface and ocean bottom.

The reason I believe that Atlantis was at some points contiguous with the European continent is the fact that there is evidence that much of Western Europe, which is now under water, was long ago above water.  { http://www.nii.net/~obie/historygold.htm } Jurgen Spanuth, in his book, Atlantis of the North, argues that the central city of Atlantis was actually located in Basilia, where the Eider and Elbe Rivers empty into the German Ocean (North Sea), off the coast of today’s Heiligoland of northern Germany.
He presents evidence that this area was once above water.

Pangea

A similar concept of the Earth’s past topology is known as Pangea.  This idea has received general acceptance by orthodox scientists.  The Pangea hypothesis proposes that all of the earth’s present, above-water land mass was at one time connected, with either no Atlantic Ocean or a much smaller sea separating the hemispheres.  Pangea, which may be a close description of the earth’s surface terrain at the time of Atlantis, was smashed by this asteroid, Phaeton.  Up to one thousand miles of Atlantis, which projected westward from today’s Europe, was driven downwards, engulfing it in ocean water.  

The impact on the Earth’s tectonic plates was so forceful that it further separated Africa from South America, which were then closer together, creating the South Atlantic Ocean, with its still active, mid-Atlantic sea bottom rift.  (If you look at a map of Africa and South America, you will see that they fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.)  An unnamed land mass, today called Antarctica, probably broke off from either South America or Southern Africa, and was driven southward, coming to rest at the bottom of the world, to be frozen over by centuries of snowfall.

The eastward and westward thrust of this impact pushed against the tectonic plates of Asia and the Americas, creating the Himalayan mountain range, the Rocky Mountains, and the Andes of South America. 

All of these mountain ranges are very young, showing very little erosion, compared to smaller mountain ranges, thus betraying their youth.  Horizontal tectonic plates, smashing into each other, were thrust upward at various angles, a feature which is easily distinguished by geologists.  

That such features could not have occurred gradually is quite obvious.  

The uniformitarian view that these mountain ranges have been in place for millions of years is proved false by the very cragginess of their terrain, which shows very little of the smoothing and rounding that millions of years of erosion would produce.  

The opinion that these mountain ranges were formed gradually, over eons of time, is proved false by the fact that subterranean layers of stratified rock, many containing evidence of sea-bottom shells and fossils, were pushed up at various angles and now lie on top of the layers they were pushed against.  

How does ocean-bottom sandstone end up on top of mountains? 

Here is a good website about ocean-bottom fossils in the State of Kansas:  

Oceans of Kansas


After reading the speculations of the uniformitarians, Muck’s Mass Extinction Event shines through with clarity, logic and solid science; and it conforms to the archeological and geological records.   

His explanation tells us how the youngest mountain ranges were really formed.  

Even today, after 12,000 years, Mt. Everest is a sharp-tipped mountain.  

The fact that it projects five miles above sea level (29,035 ft.) is a testament to the violence with which it was driven upwards.  

As Plato said in his Critias, Atlantis vanished “in a single dreadful day and a single dreadful night.”

Plato was telling us the truth.  It is modern science that is still teaching fables about the ancient past.

The Enmity, Part 3:
Atlantis and Genesis 1 & 2:
The Earth Recovers
By Pastor Eli James

Prologue

Here is an example of the current mind-set of orthodox “Christian scholarship,” with regard to the Book of Genesis:

'Probably, so far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Genesis 1-11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that:

(a) Creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience.

(b) the figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the biblical story.

(c) Noah's flood was understood to be world-wide and extinguish all human and animal life except for those in the ark.

Or, to put it negatively, the apologetic arguments which suppose the “days” of creation to be long eras of time, the figures of years not to be chronological, and the flood to be a merely local Mesopotamian flood, are not taken seriously by any such professors, as far as I know.  

Professor James Barr, Regius Professor of Hebrew at the University of Oxford.

Professor Barr has illustrated the orthodox, Judeo-Christian interpretation of the opening books of Genesis. 

What follows herein is a series of “apologetic arguments,” which despite orthodoxy’s reluctance to take them seriously, must be considered.  

The fact is that the above three notions rest on very shaky ground.  

They are opinions, not fact; and these opinions are supported neither by the archeological record nor by the Bible. 

They are examples of institutionalized error; dogmatic beliefs, which are not allowed to be questioned in the halls of organized religion.  

Since much of orthodoxy is set in concrete, Yahweh has provided us with a sledgehammer.  It is the Christian Identity Movement.  

I may not be a professor at a “world-class university,” but neither was the Carpenter from Nazareth!!!

Genesis, Chapter 1: An Identity Perspective

“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” – Jude 6.

Before reviewing Genesis, Chapter 1, here is a fascinating account of the relationship that existed between the kings of Atlantis and the Rephaim {pronounced Reff-A-yim} of the Bible.  

The salient point here is that Cro-Magnon Man is to be understood as representative of the pre-historic White Race. This Race ruled and colonized the world before its destruction by a great comet or asteroid, named Phaeton.

Here is a quotation from an article about the Cro-Magnon controversy:
Basic facts: Cro Magnon Man appeared abruptly in Europe and North Africa. He lasted from 40,000 years ago to about 12,000 years ago. 

The first recognized discovery of a Cro Magnon was in 1868, only 20 years before the Secret Doctrine was written.

Blavatsky quotes a man of science as saying:
‘On the contrary, one of the oldest types, that of the men of the sepulchral cave of Cro-Magnon, is that of a fine race, tall in stature, large in brain, and on the whole superior to many of the existing races of mankind.’ 

The scientist is quite right. Skull types are known after the name of the place where they are first discovered and Cro Magnon was discovered in a cave in France. He is still considered by scientists today to be taller and larger brained than the average human living today.

The first puzzle causes these physical characteristics to be not pleasant for the anthropologist. [These physical characteristics are “too modern” for the Fable of Evolution.  Take note of the next sentence.  – Eli.]  To fit in more gracefully with their theories, Cro Magnon should have been shorter and smaller brained than the average for humans today.

{As you can imagine, it is very difficult, these days, to find authors who will discuss Race objectively.  Even though this site is dedicated to Madam Blavatsky, the notorious occultist, the author’s focus is on the scientific details of Cro-Magnon skulls, not on occultism.   Note that the author states that Cro-Magnon man “disappeared” right around the time of the sinking of Atlantis, around 10,500 BC!!! - Eli}

Many in Identity have argued that Adam was the very first White Man.  I cannot and do not accept this proposition.  It is largely based on old science, which has reported that Caucasoid skeletons had not been found in ancient digs beneath the 4,000 BC layers.  

Trying to reconcile the Bible with this perceived fact, this idea made sense.  But, with constantly improving dating methods and computerized models, more recent archeology tells a different story.  

The fact is that skeletal remains of Caucasoids have been found in digs that have been dated as early as 100,000 years old.  

{This is a good reference site, for its comparison of a Neanderthal skull with a Cro-Magnon skull.  The rest of the site is doctrinaire evolutionism: 


Skeletal remains of ancient Cro-Magnon, such as Kennewick Man, are proof positive that the White Race existed before Adam was formed (Gen. 2:7).  I will explain the crucial significance of this fact later, when we focus our study on Genesis 2. In this essay, we will concentrate on the Earth’s prehistory, leading up to Genesis 1. Then we will reconsider Genesis 1 in the light of what we have learned.

Before reviewing Genesis, Chapter 1, here is a fascinating account of the relationship between the Story of Chronos (king Atlas of Atlantis) and the Rephaim of the Bible. The important point here is that Cro-Magnon Man is the White Race as it was before the formation of Adam in Gen. 2. Skeletal remains of ancient Cro-Magnon, such as Kennewick Man, are proof positive that the White Race existed before Adam was formed. I will explain the significance of this fact later. - Eli

ECHOES OF ATLANTIS

Myths and Traditions of Ancient Lands, by R. Cedric Leonard
The traditions and mythologies which will be brought forward here are not intrinsically a part of Plato's account. They are separate in themselves, but will be compared to Plato's story of Atlantis to illustrate the similarities. Plato did not create a mythology when he wrote of Atlantis; rather, he repeated a tradition which had been handed down to him as “historical”.

Here we will be dealing in supposition and interpretation rather than solid scientific facts. The story as related to us by Plato has seemingly mythological elements in it, just as the Old Testament contains similar elements even though it is usually thought of as basically historical. At least one of these “mythological elements” will be dealt with in detail, since it is found in both the Platonic and traditional accounts.

Again, the whole purpose of this website is to acquaint the inquirer with information that is not widely known. Therefore, be ready for some real surprises. The thrust here is specifically to compare Plato's quasi-historical account of Atlantis (including both its rise and demise) to mythologies and traditions which were in existence long before Plato, and to show how they relate to Plato's story of Atlantis.

I believe very strongly that events which actually happened gave rise to these traditions--even though they do not mention Atlantis by name--and it is the events which are important, not formalities which would satisfy scholars. The traditions and myths I am about to describe correspond so closely to details given in Plato's Atlantis narratives that mere coincidence is highly unlikely.

Egyptian Traditions

The ancient Egyptian records give us several kinds of information relating to the era of Atlantis. First of all, there is what is called the First Time, Zep Tepi, or the Golden Age, when the gods ruled. This is the time when mankind was given the elements of civilization, when the primordial darkness was banished. During Zep Tepi there were intermediaries between the gods and men, a time of the Neteru, the “Watchers”, who lived on the earth with men and guided them.

Not only do we have the king-lists bequeathed to us in Greek translation by Manetho (250 B.C.), we also have direct Egyptian sources, such as the king-list engraved on the Palermo Stone (2565-2420 B.C.) and the Turin Papyrus (circa. 1300 B.C.). One of the important aspects of Manetho's king-list is that since he writes in Greek, he gives us the Greek equivalent of each Egyptian king mentioned in the lists.

After telling us that the total number of years covered by all the king-lists equals 36,525 (which, incidentally, agrees precisely with the period of Cro-Magnon Man), he continues: “the first series of princes was that of the Auritae (or the Aletae according to Sanchuniathon).”Then he lists the kings who ruled during this “reign of the gods”. Here is Manetho's king-list, including the names from the Turin Papyrus on the left (there are two different kings named “Horus”):

According to Manetho the “rule of the demigods” immediately follows the reign of the gods (Cory, 1832). And Manetho's king-lists have been confirmed by the Egyptian sources mentioned above. (For an explanation of the omission of three kings, click on Manetho's king-list.) The important thing is that whenever the “reign of the gods” is included, Cronos (Seb) is always listed in one form or another.

Manetho is careful to point out that these first kings ruled not in Egypt itself, but rather in a foreign country. King Cronos and his connection with this Golden Age is very important in connecting up these traditions.

The Oldest Egyptian name for Cronos (Saturn) was Seb, which among the later Coptics became Repha. The latter appears in the ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament (the LXX) as “Raiphan” (Amos 5:26; modern versions use Rephan where the Amos passage is quoted in the New Testament--Acts 7:43). 

In any case, there is no doubt among scholars (Tyndale, 1962) that Saturn is the deity in reference--and as you know, Saturn is the Roman equivalent of Cronos.

This is in itself interesting, since the Hebrew were slaves in Egypt for hundreds of years and acquired many loan-words during that captivity. 

So it appears that Repha is an Egyptian loan-word, and the Hebrews' use of Rephaim (plural of Repha, usually translated “giants”) is most likely a reference to the gigantic sons of Cronos--the Titans.

One of the god-kings listed in the Turin Papyrus which is omitted in our copies of Manetho's king list is the god Thoth. King Thoth is important for several different reasons. 

First, he is credited as being the inventor of writing; secondly, he wrote a large number of mystical works known as the Books of Thoth; and thirdly, he ruled on an island located in the west (Budge, 1960). The well-known Egyptian Book of the Dead contains some of the writings of Thoth.

Greek Mythology

Both Herodotus and Diodorus Siculus described certain “Atlantean” tribes who lived in Libya. Herodotus describes them as living in the vicinity of Mt. Atlas (History, Book IV), and Diodorus (Lib. Hist., Book III) says they lived “in the regions which lie close to the shore of the ocean.” 

Both descriptions fit the modern North African country of Morocco. But most importantly, these very people retained traditions of a time when they were ruled by Ouranos, Cronos and Atlas.

According to Diodorus, King Ouranos married Titaea and their sons were called Titans. The most prominent among them were Cronos and Atlas. Atlas was given the regions near the shore of the ocean to rule. 

Cronos eventually deposed Ouranos and became their next king. (Lib. Hist., Book III) These rulers more closely resemble the “gods” of Homer and Hesiod than the Atlantean kings of Plato's account, which tells us that Diodorus did not use Plato's Atlantis narratives as a source. 

(Critias explains that the original king-names had first been translated into Egyptian using the meanings of the names, which the priests in turn translated into the Greek for Solon.)

Diodorus' “Atlanteans” were without doubt the survivors of the cataclysm and, finding themselves in North Africa, evidently retained memories of being ruled by the gods, “Whose source was the ocean [i.e., the Atlantic]”. 

It is more than interesting that Herodotus (450 B.C.) had already called these people “Atlanteans,” and the ocean to the west of them the “Atlantis Sea” nearly a hundred years before Plato. 

And it is also curious that a people calling themselves “Atlanteans” happened to be living precisely in the area that survivors of such a catastrophe should be expected!

As we have seen, it is virtually impossible to separate King Cronos from Atlantis. The war waged by the Atlanteans against the nations within the Mediterranean area and the mythological War of the Titans and Olympian gods have many important parallels. 

In both cases it happened just before the end of the invaders' civilization. In both accounts it was Zeus who was responsible for the demise of the opposing army. Both battles ended in violent destruction and a watery conclusion.

In the Atlanteans' case it was earthquakes, cataclysmic floods, and finally subsidence. In the Titans' case, Zeus rolled up a huge ball of fire in his hands and cast it down upon the Titans. 

This set the forested land on fire and made the ocean boil; the hills and valleys heaved and shook in a tremendous earthquake. 

The Titans were imprisoned (since they could not die) in Tartaros, which the Greek poets Homer and Orpheus place beneath the waves of “Oceanos,” now called the Atlantic Ocean.

In Plato's unfinished Critias, Zeus had just decided to convene a council of the gods to determine the fate of the Atlanteans; but we have already learned the result of that council from the Timaeus; i.e., after suffering tremendous earthquakes and floods, Atlantis, with all her inhabitants, was destroyed, disappearing beneath the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Atlanteans were described by Plato as being in the beginning a most noble race; but slowly the godly element of their nature became diluted by the baser human side. They eventually became greedy, materialistic, and warlike. In Greek mythology, King Cronos ruled during a Golden Age, introduced agriculture, established cities and law. The Golden Age was one of abundance and peace.

Hesiod writes about the Golden Age of Cronos in his Theogeny, wherein he is principally dealing with deities; but in his Works and Days where he is describing mankind he resorts to a different set of terms. 

He portrays mankind as a series of “races,” starting with a Golden Race, but eventually degenerating into an Iron Race. 

The original Golden race “lived in the time of Cronos” during the Golden Age. (Hesiod, 750 B.C.)

But, according to Hesiod, upon the demise of the Golden Race, an inferior Silver Race was then created. Later came the Bronze Race, the race of Heroes, and finally the inferior Iron Race (Hesiod, 750 B.C.). 

Since these are oral traditions carried down by the ancient Greeks, mostly in ballads and epic poems, no time frame is given; but the sequence as given is certainly indicative of the gradual deterioration of mankind parallel to Plato's description of the fate of the Atlantean people.

King Cronos ruled a western kingdom (called “the Saturnian continent” by Latins; Plutarch, 100 A.D.), was said to have invented agriculture, and instructed men how to live in a civilized manner. 

But to prevent rivals to his throne he began to kill all his own sons. Zeus (who was destined to depose him), was hid by his mother on the isle of Crete, where he grew up finally to defeat his father and rule as king of the gods (Hesiod, 735 B.C.).

The manner in which Zeus finally defeats Cronos and his Titans (the sons of Heaven) is reminiscent of the account found in the Mahabharata. 

After the war had continued unabated for ten years, Zeus was finally presented with “weapons” which resembled lightning, and the earth began to quake as fiery bolts flew from his hands. 

The vast forests were set on fire and the waters of the ocean itself “boiled and seethed” (Hesiod, 735 B.C.).

Cronos and the Titans are finally imprisoned in Tartaros, located deep beneath the ocean waves. In this passage from the Iliad (Book XIV), the queenly Hera proposes “to visit Oceanus at the far end of the earth, from whom the gods are sprung,” where Zeus “had also thrust great Cronos down beneath earth and the restless sea.” (Homer, 850 B.C.) 

Once the Titans are sealed in their infernal prison, Atlas himself is left guarding the gates, preventing a future escape--a lot of Atlantean connections here!

During the yearly festival known as the Cronia--similar to the Roman Saturnalia festival--the bound statue of Cronos was brought forth and loosed, but only for the duration of the festival. At the same time all slaves were temporarily freed, gifts exchanged, and a 7-day long party ensued during which there was drinking and merrymaking. 

Slaves were allowed to order their masters around (although the severity of such orders was tempered by the knowledge that in a few days they would again be ruled by these same masters). This was all, of course, to honor Cronos, the first great king and civilizer of mankind; but also to commemorate the defeat, binding, and imprisonment of Cronos at the end of the 10-year-long war.

Just how did Plato's Atlanteans obtain their “godly” nature to begin with? According to Plato's Critias, the god Poseidon fell in love with an earthborn girl named Cleito. He had intercourse with her (the “mythological element” of the Atlantis story), and built her a palace in Atlantis on a hill. They eventually had five sets of twins (ten princes), the eldest of which was named Atlas, for which the entire land was named Atlantis.

This “mixture” of divine and earthborn would, of course, make each of their offspring one-half divine and one-half human. The natural result of this generation mating with other earthborn women would result in only a “quarter” of the divine element, etc., etc., until eventually the divine element would become so “diluted” that the baser “human” characteristics would finally be in control. Now let's compare this scenario with another prominent body of legends.

Hebrew Records

The traditions recorded by the Hebrews parallel the above account closely. A strange, often puzzling, passage appears early in the Hebrew Bible which bears looking into at this point. In the book of Genesis one finds the following:

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. . . .

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughter of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men (heroes) which were of old, men of renown.” (Genesis 6:1-2-4)

Now this is basically how Plato says the Atlanteans came to be. (Remember also that Hesiod calls the Titans “sons of Heaven”.) 

The Hebrew account even contains a reference to Plato's “dilution” of the divine element with the human: “And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh” (verse 3), after which man grows extremely wicked and is eventually destroyed by a flood. 

The account in the Book of Enoch mentions the earth tilting on its axis during which the earth “labours and is violently shaken.” (I Enoch LXIV. 1-3)

Two of the most surprising (and mistranslated) verses in the Old Testament may actually concern Atlantis. The passage is found in the Book of Job, and in the respected King James Version reads like this:

“Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.” (Job 26:5-6)

An innocuous enough sounding passage: no clue here to the famous sunken land. But in reality, these verses deserve a second look. The very first word in the above passage is the Hebrew word Rephaim, a reference to the descendants of Repha! In other words, this is a direct reference to the sons of King Cronos - the famed Titans of Greek mythology. 

And the Hebrew verb translated “formed” should have been translated “tremble” or “writhe”. What a change this makes! 

An informed modern translation would read: “The Titans tremble beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof. Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.” (Job 26:5-6)

Dr. James Moffatt (1922) of Oxford University is almost poetic in his expressive rendering of the passage in question. Undoubtedly he has caught the meaning of what this is all about.

“Before him the primaeval giants writhe, under the ocean in their prison; the underworld lies open to his eyes, the nether regions are unveiled.” (Job 26:5-6)

If this is not a reference to the fateful destiny of the Titans, I don't know what it is! It was the god zeus who had won the battle (leading the Olympian gods against Cronos and the Titans), and had imprisoned them at the bottom of the ocean (Oceanos, which we now call the Atlantic). 

Yahweh is said to be able to see right through the “covering” (the waters) and view “destruction” as if it were lying naked before him. 

Tartaros is the Greek name for this underwater prison (translated “hell” in II Peter 2:4 of the New Testament), but this term is not used in the Hebrew texts--it is not a Hebrew word. 

However, if there ever was a place where the Hebrews could have used a Greek loan-word in place of sheol, this was it.

The only scholarly reference I've ever seen acknowledging this ancient Hebrew concept of a special “prison” or “hell” beneath the sea is that of the famed Assyriologist Alexander Heidel. 

He states unequivocally that: “The Old Testament localizes the realm of the dead, or, rather, the realm of certain disembodied human spirits, within the innermost parts of the earth, below the sea.” (Heidel, 1946; italics are mine.) In support of this, he quotes this same passage from the Book of Job which we have been analyzing.

The above reference to the Rephaim (giants), the descendants of Repha (Cronos), the agony of their imprisonment beneath the ocean, and the obvious reference to “destruction” covered by water is about as close as the Bible comes to mentioning the demise of Atlantis and the fate of its inhabitants.
