Chronicles of Atlantis
|The highly influential ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote about Atlantis in his dialogues “Timaeus” and “Critias.” In these dialogues it was told by the character Critias that his grandfather heard about the story of Atlantis hundred years ago from Solon, a well-known Athenian poet and politician. Solon heard about the story during his stay in Egypt in 565 BCE. The story tells us that before the advanced Greek civilization, there once was another highly advanced civilization called “Atlantis”, and was an island nation. Plato’s account is regarded by many as the most credible account of a possible ancient lost civilization.||
Plato stated that the island of Atlantis was situated beyond these “Pillars of Hercules”; the Atlantic Ocean. For generations its people lived virtuous lives until greed and power began to corrupt them. Its final destruction happened some 9,500 years ago; In a single day and night, the land of Atlantis disappeared in the depths of the sea due to violent earthquakes and floods. Many scholars today believe Plato’s story about Atlantis was a fictional account, a possible metaphor, for the reason that there is no known land or civilization which fits it’s descriptions, however Plato himself did imply in his own story, even multiple times, that it once really existed.
In “Timaeus and Critias”, Plato wrote that Atlantis was founded by Poseidon: known as “the god of the sea”, who according to the myths fell in love with a mortal woman named Cleito. Cleito gave birth to five sets of twin boys, and the domain was divided amongst them. The eldest, named Atlas, became the first king of Atlantis. Poseidon had his own temple within the citadel of Atlantis City. Its exterior was entirely covered with silver and its pinnacles with gold, and the interior of the temple was of ivory, gold, silver, and orichalch, even to the pillars and floor. The temple contained a colossal statue of Poseidon standing in a chariot drawn by six winged horses, about him a hundred Nereids riding on dolphins. Arranged outside the building were golden statues of the first ten kings and their wives.
The name “Po Seidon” could be translated to either: “Father Seidon” or “Father of Seidon”, and might be possibly related to the city in Lebanon that is mentioned in the Bible as: “Sidon” (or Zidon/Cydon). This city was named after the “first-born” of Canaan; son of Ham and the grandson of Noah.
The name of the city-state called “Cydonia” in Crete could possibly also have been given in honour of Sidon. It is possible that those places that bear the names of the island of Cydonia and Sidon in Libanon did initiate the belief by some researchers that the island of Atlantis was in the Mediterranean Sea instead of the Atlantic Ocean. However, as Sidon is not an island, it is more likely that these places were settlements by migrants from Atlantis.
The earlier ancient Greek historian Herodotus used the name “Atlantis Sea” for the sea past the “Pillars of Heracles” (the Strait of Gibraltar), which may imply that Herodotus also knew something about Atlantis.
Kircher’s map of Atlantis
Athanasius Kircher (1601-1680), a renaissance man very much like Leonardo da Vinci, made a map based on Plato’s descriptions in his book “Mundus Subterraneus” (The Underground World) in ca. 1665. (Note that north is shown down and south up.)
The great library of Alexandria in Egypt was possibly the greatest library that has ever existed on earth; A large source of ancient literature, which for thousands of years had been the Western world’s most important center of learning. Historians tell us that it was conceived and opened either during the reign of Ptolemy I Soter (323-283 BCE) or his son Ptolemy II (283-246 BCE), but its literature could have been much older, and could have contained more evidence for the ancient continent and society of Atlantis.
The Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus (330-400 CE) wrote that the intelligentsia of Alexandria regarded the story and destruction of Atlantis a historical fact; It was described as a class of earthquakes that suddenly, by a violent motion, opened up huge mouths and so swallowed up portions of the earth, as once in the Atlantic Ocean a large island was swallowed up.
As read in the writings of the Greek historian Plutarch; Julius Caesar “accidentally” burned down the library, but probably not completely. In this time, a daughter library in the Serapeum temple still existed. It was finally completely destroyed during the conquest of Egypt by the Arabs in the year 642 AD. In 2004, a Polish-Egyptian excavation team announced its discovery of the remains of the long lost lecture halls, or auditoria of the library (BBC news), which proved without any doubt that this great library truly had existed. According to Edgar Cayce the library was initially established in the year 10,300 BCE (reading 315-4).
Could the disappearance of these ancient writings that possibly included these that were on the subject of Atlantis, as historical fact, be the reason why we have known so little about it? There is actually a lot been written about Atlantis, even in this day and age; It is even said that it is the most documented subject in the history of literature. It is possible that it is referred to in ancient Hindu texts and it also became the subject of numerous esoteric, occult and theosophical works, and clairvoyant readings. However, many of the presented claims about Atlantis still remain to be proven for it to be regarded as factual evidence. Personally I recommend reading the book “Atlantis: Insights from a Lost Civilization” (1997) by Shirley Andrews which summarizes geologic and metaphysical evidence that makes it likely that it really had existed.
The name “Atlantis” is a remarkable name; It is often thought to be connected to the god Atlas from Greek mythology: one of the sons of the god Poseidon and the first king of Atlantis. The name is actually not Greek but probably originates from Nahuatl: the language of the Aztecs. The name seems to be a composition of several words from the Nahua language; “atl” is the word for “water” and “atlan” means: in the middle of the water. (On it’s own, “antis” means “copper”.) “Aztec” is the Nahuatl word for “people from Aztlán”. According to the history of the Aztec people of Mesoamerica, they originally came from a now lost land called “Aztlán”.
Mexican polymath and writer Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora (1645-1700) came into possession of an unique collection of manuscripts and paintings from the indigenous Mexican people, which he inherited from his friend Don Juan de Alva; the son of Fernando de Alva Cortés Ixtlilxochitl and a direct descendant of the kings of Texcoco. Ixtlilxochitl was a learned man and wrote for the first time the history of Mexico into Spanish. In 1668, Sigüenza began the study of Aztec history and Toltec writing, and concluded that there had been another race of people before the Toltecs named the Olmecs. He believed that these Olmecs came from the mythical island of Atlantis and that they were responsible for the building of the pyramids at Teotihuacán. Later, after his death, his work was partly destroyed by the inquisition and another part became lost.
Fortunately, the Italian adventurer and traveler Gemelli Careri (1651-1725), with whom de Sigüenza also did share his information, included de Signüenza’s information about Atlantis and the ancient Mexican calendar in his own book: “Giro del Mondo”. (Source: “The Mayan Prophecies” (1995) by Adrian Gilbert and Maurice Cotterell.) In New Spain, Careri had the opportunity to study the pyramids carefully and their affinity to the Egyptian pyramids led him to believe that the ancient Egyptians and the Amerindians both descended from the inhabitants of Atlantis.
Other references to Atlantis by historians and other sources:
- The Greek historian and rhetorician Theopompos (c. 380 BCE) wrote of the huge size of Atlantis and its cities of Machimum and Eusebius and a golden age free from disease and manual labor.
- The Greek historian Diodorus Siculus (flourished between 60 and 30 BCE) made a reference about Phoenicians had been to the immense “Atlantic island”. He also wrote that these “Atlanteans” were engaged in war with the Amazonians.
- The Greek historian Timagenus recorded the war between Atlantis and Europe. Tribes in ancient France said that Atlantis was their original home.
- The Roman usurper Proculus (reigned c. 280 CE) visited the islands off Africa (Canaries or Azores) where the natives told him of the destruction of Atlantis.
- In Norse mythology there is the mention of “Asgard”; a land or capital city situated in the centre of the world where the “Æsir” (the gods) lived. It may be that this Asgard was in fact the central situated capital of Atlantis which was named: “Atlantis City” by Plato and that the Æsir could be the Ashvins/Asvins who are mentioned in the old Indian texts as Vedic gods who symbolised the rising and setting of the sun and appeared in a golden chariot. These chariots or aircraft of the Ashvins from the old Vedic texts were more or less described in the same manner as the aircraft described in the book “A Dweller on Two Planets” (1894). This could mean that the Atlanteans, the citizen of Atlantis City, were known by the people of ancient India as the Ashvins and the “Æsir” (the gods) in Northern-Europe.
- The ancient “Oera Linda Boek” from the Netherlands (the oldest part is supposed to be dating from 2,194 BCE) mentions the submerge a large Atlantic island known as “Atland” by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and rapid sea level changes. Its group of inhabitants who were followers of the goddess Freyja, fled to the place they later called “Frya’s Land”, currently known as the Dutch region of Friesland. (The text is fully readable online at: www.sacred-texts.com/atl/olb/index.htm)
- The ancient writings of the Aztecs and Mayans: the Chilam Balam, Desden Codex, Popuhl Vuh, Codex Cortesianus and Troano Manuscript also had been interpret as histories of the destruction of the lost continents of both Atlantis and Lemuria. The Aztecs even mention the name of the place of which they came as “Aztlán”, a possible reference to Atlantis.
- English occult writer and inventor James Churchward (1851-1936) wrote several volumes of books documenting ancient writings he claims to have translated in Southeast Asia concerning Atlantis and Mu, while geologist William Niven claimed to have excavated identical tablets in Mexico.
Many ancient writings and stories from Greece, Egypt, the Mayans and the Aztecs, the Basques from Spain, the Gauls from France, the tribes of the Canary and Azores islands, the Frisians from the Netherlands, and many Amerindian tribes all speak of their origins from a large sunken land in the region of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Three Cataclysms
|The famed American psychic Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) referred to Atlantis as fact – not fable. In a number of his readings, he spoke about past lives where people once had lived in Atlantis. Among Edgar Cayce’s 14,306 documented readings, exactly 700 – which is less then 5% – mentioned Atlantis.According to his readings; In the beginning, Atlantis was not a mere island but a large continent of the size of Europe, including Asia in Europe, that stretched from the Gulf of Mexico to the Mediterranean Sea. Evidences of this lost civilization could be found in the Pyrenees and Morocco at one side, and in British Honduras, Yucatan and America on the other side. Some parts including the British West Indies and the Bahamas, once were part of that huge continent, and the islands of the Azores once were its large mountain tops.||
The readings of Edgar Cayce suggest that 52,000 years ago, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes started to cause a shift of the magnetic poles of the earth which resulted in the loss of land in Atlantis and eventually became an archipelago of five islands. With the upheavals, the initial migrations from Atlantis took place in small numbers to the east and west. The earliest settlements were in the region of the Pyrenees in France and Spain and later in Central and South America.
According to the “Encyclopaedia Britannica”, the original Canary Island Guanches: “are thought to have been of Cro-Magnon origin”. Archaeology tells us that Cro-Magnon man, “invaded” the western shores of Europe and North Africa, in several waves around 35,000 BCE. According to the theories of Scottish folklorist Lewis Spence and theosophical writers like Walter Scott-Elliot, these people were immigrants from the continent of Atlantis.
From “The History of Atlantis (1927)” by Lewis Spence:
Within the period from 28,200 to 18,000 BCE, there was another shift of the magnetic poles of the earth, which caused volcanic eruptions which led to great earth changes and the start of the last known glacial age. The Biblical “Deluge”, or “Noah’s Flood” was the second of the great flood which would have happened in: “two-thousand-two-two thousand and six” [22,006?] BCE (Cayce 364-6). During this period Atlantis lost land again and became one island that was connected by a chain of islands to the land of North-America. Because of the upheavals, there were large movements of people who were migrating to other, safer parts of the earth including: the Americas, Egypt, India, Persia and Arabia (Cayce 364-13).
The remaining principal land areas in this part of the world were the islands of Poseidia in the North (West Indies area), Aryan in the central Atlantic and Peru in the west (then known as the land of Og). Also, two smaller islands that were known as Atalya and Eyre, which were ruled by Aryan. The Mahábhárata, one of the ancient Sanskrit texts of India (estimated from 600 BCE), actually refers to “Atala, the White Island”, which was situated in the far west. Often this description is believed to mean an island covered with snow like Greenland or Antarctica, but did this text actually intended to refer to the white colour of the people’s skin, and could this be the same island as the once Atlantic island: “Atalya”?
From section CCCXXXVII of the Mahábhárata:
“The men that inhabit that island have complexions as white as the rays of the Moon and they are devoted to Narayana… Indeed, the denizens of White Island believe and worship only one God.”
Among Hindu nationalists, the name “Aryan” refers to the Hindu/Indian people, and is derived from the Sanskrit “Arya” meaning “Noble”. According to certain occult texts (possibly from Helena Blavatsky) which were also known by Adolf Hitler, the Aryan race originated in Atlantis (island of Aryan). Hitler believed that the Aryan race was the most exalted among the human races. In the Sanskrit texts, people are usually called Arya or Anarya (not-noble) based on their behaviour. The name “Iran”, which was called Persia in the past, roughly translates to “Land of the Aryans”.
After the great upheavals, Atlantis was fully destroyed in 17,400 BCE, which he called the first destruction of Atlantis. (Cayce 364-11) The second and final destruction happened in 9,900 BCE, where another shift of the magnetic poles caused the final demise of Atlantis, and also the end of the last glacial age. During this period the last remaining great islands of Atlantis sank into the sea. Only its scattered mountain peaks remained, which are now known as the islands of the Azores. The people that were able to escape at that time, fled to places including: Egypt, Yucatan and Mexico. (Cayce 364-1 and 288-1.)
Based on certain esoteric and occult books and the readings from Edgar Cayce; It took the Atlanteans some “200,000 years” to advance to a technologically high level of development. (Cayce 364-4) Early on, they already learned to use gas for transport balloons made from animal skins, discovered electricity, and at later times they developed flying “ships”, advanced forms of communication, and a “power plant” which operated through the use of a “great crystal” that could capture and store the energy gathered from the sun, the moon and other cosmic energies.
Initially, the energy of the “great crystal” had been used as a spiritual tool for those who could handle the great energy. Later it was used for rejuvenation of the human body, and the transmission of energy throughout the land – like radio waves – which powered crafts and vehicles that traversed the land, through the sky and under the sea at the speed of sound. They where also able to levitate huge stones by altering and nullifying gravity, through a higher understanding of the workings of nature, sound and vibrations.
This crystal had been referred to as the “tuaoi stone” or “firestone”, had been described as huge in size, six sided, cylindrical in length, prismatic in shape, and opalescent (almost transparent), and could be tuned to various levels to produce power. The crystal was housed in a dome where insulation materials, “akin to asbestos” where used. This probably means that the crystal could generate a large amount of heat and the scattered conserved light issuing forth from all the facets would mean that the crystal would be glowing with light, thus the name “firestone” would be appropriate. Edgar Cayce described the construction of this stone in Reading 440-5:
“As to describing the manner of construction of the stone, we find it was a large cylindrical glass (as would be termed today), cut with facets in such a manner that the capstone on top of same made for the centralizing of the power or force that concentrated between the end of the cylinder and the capstone itself.”
On a side note: In the book Ezekiel, which is part of the Bible, there is the mention of “fiery stones” which where located at the “mount of God”. No one knows for sure what is meant by the term “fiery stones”, but may very well refer to these “firestones”” which where used in Atlantis. (See Ezekiel 28:14 and 28:16.)
The disaster that caused the second period of disturbances (starting around 28,000 BCE), was due to the overtuning, or overcharging, of their largest crystal generator which was located near the so-called “Bermuda Triangle” in the area of the islands of Bermuda in the Atlantic Ocean. As incredible amounts of energy were stored inside something like an underground battery and eventually got overloaded and caused a massive explosion, one can imagine that would lead to some major disturbances within the earth crust, and because of this; the sinking of much land mass.
This now damaged generator would periodically trigger a massive shift of unfocused electromagnetic energy which could dematerialize its direct surroundings, which can cause both ships and planes to go astray. The current scientific theory is that this place is dangerous because of gasses that are emerging from the bottom of the ocean which nullify the natural carrying capacity of water and air, causing both ships and planes to crash into the bottom of the ocean. But it is still highly unnatural for such a great amount of natural gasses to be released at once, and even leaks or drilling could probably not release such a great amount at once, especially in such a wide area, so I think the possibility of dematerialization is still viable.
According to the readings of trance medium Dan Akkerman; Planet Earth originally had two moons and there was no rise and fall of the Earth’s oceans. When a meteor was about to make an impact upon the earth, people tried to change its orbit with a form of nuclear fusion. They failed however, and the meteor struck, destroying one of the moons. Because of the disturbance of this imbalance, the rise and fall of the oceans were the result, causing the enormous continent to be changed into multiple large islands and later in smaller ones. This impact, and also the use of technology for wrong purposes, which caused that the forces of nature turned against man, was the beginning of the demise of Atlantis. Various species of animals became mass extinct, of which most of current modern scientists wrongly dated its remains back to millions of years, though this was only about 25,000 years ago. (Freely translated from: “Atlantis en ufo’s (2003)”.)
Deep trance medium Douglas James Cottrell also described some of the technology and machinery which would have been developed in Atlantis:
“For the Atlanteans were a red race, red skin. They lived in close harmony with nature. They believed the spirit was within all things and they imitated nature in all their undertakings. Their boats would look like fish – well, the shape of whales more exactly. Their machinery would look, or copy, which would be found in nature. If an animal could claw its way through dirt, they would make a machine that would look similar. Their airplanes would look like birds; the eagle and the hawk, you’ll say.And even now in this time of the world, designers of ships and airplanes are indeed copying what is already in nature: they emulate what they perceive; in the bird or the fish, in order for their machine that goes through the air or the water to function more correctly. As then as now they copied nature. They had great understanding how to live within the laws of nature. The druids, or the Atlanteans, were the remnants of Atlantis, knew geometry, knew astronomy, they understood electricity, and laser: the concentration of light.It was a point of power or influence that extended in all directions. We would see that this is in line with the grids or pyramids upon the earth, and there was a purpose for this. Who were these ancient peoples? They were the same peoples who migrated from Lemuria to Atlantis and went in the north-easterly direction to Europe itself. See?”(Source: Rev. Douglas James Cottrell PhD: the purpose of Stonehenge in England, by Rammsteinregeln.)
The mention of a ship in the form of a whale is also a very interesting detail what could mean that the fish or whale (depending on translation) that swallowed Jonah in the Biblical story of Jonah, could have been in fact an Atlantean ship or submarine which looks like a whale, instead of a real whale. Anyway, it is actually impossible to survive within the belly of a real whale, and certainly not as long as the mentioned “three days and three nights”, as its stomach acids would be fatal to any human. Also, it could be that such an airplane in the form of a eagle or hawk is seen at these ancient base-reliefs from ancient Mesopotamia, that are known currently known as depictions of the “Farohar” or simply: the “winged disk”. (See the chapter: “Ancient Anomalies: The Enigmatic Winged Disk” for more information.)
The book: “A Dweller on two Planets” (1894) (by Phylos the Thibetan, channeled through Frederick S. Oliver) describes many aspects of the Atlantean civilization at a certain point in time, including geological situation, buildings, religion, education, technology and politics. There was a caste system in Atlantis, which lead to great competition among the people. For this reason, many people where highly educated, which allowed them to acclaim higher functions, better opportunities and civil rights. Lower educated people ended up in lower classes which and could have a hard time possibly while living in poverty. In Atlantis City, each class of the population lived in a different area of Atlantis.
Curiously, the book also describes various kinds of technology that had still not yet been invented during 1894; the year this book had been written. It includes: a portable communication device like todays wireless mobile phone which could also transmit pictures, a kind of gun that used electricity instead of bullets, flying machines that worked through the means of anti-gravity, and even some devices that are unknown to current modern society.
According to the book, this “advanced” technology was already lost nine centuries prior to the final demise of the Atlantis, due to the destruction of Marzeus: the city of manufacturing arts, by the “Navaz” forces (explained as “earth-currents” at page 37) which they had “forgotten how to control” (page 211). This is particularly reminiscent of Edgar Cayce’s readings about the overtuning of the Great Crystal.
From page 205 of “A Dweller on Two Planets”:
When Plato described Atlantis in his dialogues, most of this advanced technology had already been lost for many centuries. During these times, the Atlanteans relied once again on more primitive transport, like wooden ships to sail the sea. He described that Atlantis waged many wars with other civilizations to conquer more land for colonization. The proud Atlanteans still had a powerful army, but were greatly humiliated when they were defeated in their attempt to penetrate to “Athens” (which in fact was not named Athens yet, because this is the name given by the much later Greek civilization).
Signs of various kinds of lost technology, which possibly originated in Atlantis, and maybe even more back into the times of Lemuria, are evident in and around many ancient megalithic structures around the globe such as in Egypt, Baalbek, Machu Pichu, England and many others. Often these structures are built with a frame of huge stone blocks which sometimes are weighing multiple hundreds of tons, therefore it is unthinkable how they could have moved – and more importantly: lifted – these without the use of modern mechanized cranes.
It is apparent that at some point in time, people stopped to use these large and heavy stones for construction purposes, which could mean that they used this technology or knowledge at this point. This seems evident in the restoration work at certain megalithic sites in Meso-America were smaller stones were used to fill in the gaps between the stones which were formed by earthquakes. Also, at certain constructions like in Egypt and Baalbek, there are some very heavy stones which are just laying around, as if they were never had been put to into place. Could this be because they just weren’t able to move them anymore?
These ancients were also able to carve and deform the hardest types of stone with such accurate precision as if they where laser cut. This curious kind of stone masonry is found at those megalithic sites from Egypt, Puma Punku and Cuzco. These achievements could be considered as the smoking guns for the evidence of ancient lost technology and should be receiving more serious attention and research.
Building with great blocks of stone may be considered primitive by some but stone is actually one of the most durable materials for construction. The advantage of using very heavy stones is that they have far superior resistance against earthquakes and violent storms. Materials like metals, plastics and wood (paper), which are abundantly in use in modern times, aren’t actually very durable at all. If there would be remains to be found, made of these not-so-durable materials, after a time period of 10,000 years, it would have to be exceptionally well conserved and protected from natural influences like humidity, corrosion and erosion, because otherwise there would be (as good as) nothing left of it today.
Atlantean Flying Machines
The book “A Dweller on Two Planets”, from 1894, describes a certain Atlantean cigar-shaped flying machine which is much like a modern passenger aircraft, though without wings and a tail. From its descriptions, it doesn’t rely on aero-dynamic forces, but instead uses the forces that could be considered gravitational/anti-gravitational. This flying machine is called a “vailx” (“vailxi” in plural form), and is actually the same name given to the flying craft of the Aswin people who had been mentioned in many ancient Sanskrit texts from India. This would mean that the Atlaneans were known as the Aswins in the Sanskrit texts..
It is said that when the 18 year old author of “A Dweller on Two Planets” channeled this information, he could not possibly have known of these ancient Sanskrit texts. Also, besides some early experimentation, airplanes weren’t invented until 1899, at the time when the American Wright Brothers designed their first aircraft: a small biplane glider flown as a kite.
Quoting from page 75 of the book:
“Our vailx was of the middle traffic−size, these vessels being made in four standard lengths: number one, about twenty−five feet; number two, eighty feet; number three, something like one hundred and fifty−five feet, while the largest was yet two hundred feet longer than the third size. These long spindles were in fact round, hollow needles of aluminum, formed of an outer and an inner shell between which were many thousands of double T braces, an arrangement productive of intense rigidity and strength. All the partitions made other braces of additional resistant force. From amidships the vessels tapered toward either end to sharp points. Most vailxi were provided with an arrangement allowing, when desired, an open promenade deck at one end. Windows of crystal, of enormous resistant strength, were in rows like portholes along the sides, a few on top, and others set in the floor, thus affording a view in all directions.”
“Vailx” (from “A Dweller on Two Planets”)
“Aerial-submarine vessel entering the water”
(from “A Dweller on Two Planets”)
Also, these futuristic looking craft bear an uncanny resemblance to those kind of cigar-shaped UFO’s which had been reported from as early as 1942 to this day. (See: www.ufoevidence.org) From the report by the crew of 61 Sqdn. Captain W/O Lever, of the object seen during the raid on Turin, at the night of November 28/29th, 1942:
Could these sightings in any way have been related to those Atlantean craft? According to the descriptions, these craft could fly very fast, so maybe Atlantean technology was able surpass the speed of light, which might cause a fluctuation in space-time according to certain theories, and thus might allow for some form of time travel. So, could it possibly have been that these ancient Atlanteans were once so technologically advanced that they could not only travel through space, but time as well? Or could it possibly be that some of these ships actually had been found and taken for a test flight, while still kept as military secret?
In his readings, Edgar Cayce also mentioned ships that “sailed both in the air and under water”:
(From Edgar Cayce Reading: 2157-1)
American psychic Paul Solomon also mentioned and described these Atlantean flying machines in one of his “Source Readings” (reading #5, March, 1972). A small excerpt from the text:
In the second part of this reading, Paul Solomon also mentioned another type of flying machine described as small winged aircraft:
This description sounds similar to these enigmatic small objects (ca. 8-12 cm in length), dubbed by some as “golden airplanes”, which originated from the Tolima Indians in Colombia, and are believed to be at least 1,500 years old. (Because they are made of gold, accurate dating is impossible.) Museums from Germany and Colombia who have these objects on display, claim these objects to be ficticious sculptures related to flying fish, insects and birds.
One of these Colombian “Golden Airplanes”
Another “Golden Airplane”
By closer inspection however, these seem to be models of machines built with advanced knowledge of technology and aerodynamics. These models are equipped with both a horizontal and a vertical stabilizer and looking at certain models, we can even make out rudders and elevators, while other designs were built in a way that the stabilizers themselves could act as rudders and elevators. Further we can see what looks like a seat of a motor cycle; a wind shield, and cylinders which could be related to its way of propulsion. It seems to match quite well with the description that Paul Solomon gave about these flying machines which he assumes must be part of the Atlantean existence.
Swiss author Erich von Däniken, known for his “ancient astronaut” hypothesis in his book: “Chariots of the Gods?” (1968) and others, once undertook experiments to build scale models of these statues out of molden plastic, of about a meter in size, and only being powered by a front propeller. These models were being proven aero-dynamic and able to fly through the air. (See this video: “The Mysterious World – Search for Ancient Technology”, at 7:45.)
Trance medium Daan Akkerman mentioned in one of his readings that those extraterrestrial “angels” (see the chapter “Ancient Scriptures”.) were able to manifest and dematerialize at will, during the older times of Atlantis and before, and were able to travel between time and dimensions of time, with the aid of small airplane-like craft. This could be related to the ancient Mesopotamian depictions of the “winged disk”, also known as “Farohar”. These angels weren’t been around anymore (in physical form) during the later era of technological advancements, so if these flying machines were built during this era, it is less likely that he was referring to these “Golden Airplanes”
Eklal Kueshana, author of the book “The Ultimate Frontier”, described yet another type of Atlantean craft. He wrote in an article from 1996 that the Vailixi were first developed in Atlantis around 18,000 BCE. During this time, the most common ones had the shape of what we know today as a flying saucer:
The chariot that had been witnessed and described by the Biblical prophet Ezekiel might have been such an saucer shaped Atlantean aircraft. The description of “wheels within wheels” hints to a saucer shaped craft. Edgar Cayce mentioned in his descriptions of Atlantean flying craft: “for the manners of transportation, the manners of communications were such as Ezekiel described at a later date” (Cayce 1859-1). According to Douglas James Cottrell, Ezekiel witnessed a “vehicle that would run by gravity and anti-gravity means”. (See: “Ezekiel’s wheel, the Garden of Eden, and the Dinosaurs’ demise”, by Rammsteinregeln.)
World’s earliest accounts of flying “machines” had already been mentioned in the ancient texts from India called the Vedas (Hindu poems), especially in the Mahábhárata, Bhágavata Purána and Rámáyana, by the name of “Vimana” (in some modern Indian languages the word for “aircraft”), These craft could even travel in space as there is the mention of a battle on the moon between two craft. They were described in various shapes and sizes: cigar shaped (like in Fredrick S. Oliver’s book), blimp-like, saucer-shaped, triangular (triangular winged?), and double-decked. As mentioned earlier, the Atlanteans where possibly described in the Vedic scriptures from India as the “Asvins/Ashvins”. (More about this subject at: www.hinduwisdom.info and Wikipedia.)
Edgar Cayce also told in his readings about “huge beasts” and “giant lizards”, which lived in the earlier times of Atlantis. He mentioned that the first ape-like human beings, which were living in caves, existed as early as 10,500,000 BCE (Cayce reading 2665-2). In the times of Atlantis, around 50,000 BCE, enormous carnivorous beasts were threatening man in many parts of the world. Mankind did built gigantic architecture to partially keep the large animals from entering a city and partially for earthquake stability. (Trance medium Douglas James Cottrell (PhD) also mentioned in one of his sessions that this was also the reason for the construction of certain ancient underground “cities”.) In the year 50,722 BCE there was a gathering of people from five nations around the world, where the decision had been made to exterminate these beasts, because otherwise people may had not been able to survive (reading 262-39).
First poisonous gasses where used in the caves where they dwelled, but this wasn’t a huge success; Because of sudden wind changes these gasses came back to the people and it often only made the beast come out enraged. They ultimately coped with them with explosives and by “sending out super-cosmic rays from various central plants”. In 1932 he said: “These rays will be discovered within the next twenty-five years.” This could have been referred to the later (re-)discovery of the anti-neutron beam. There was another ray which created a radiating force by storing up energy in a small insulating crystal of special magnetic properties, so that the crystal passes on more energy that it receives. This sound very much like the laser, which also wasn’t discovered until the sixties.
The huge and numerous gas pockets were blown open in the lairs of the animals which precipitated volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in the still slowly cooling earth, and caused the first continental catastrophe which affected both Lemuria and Atlantis; The axis of the world started to shift, which led to the beginning of the last great ice age. Lemuria was the first to be affected while Atlantis followed shortly. After the cataclysm, the huge beasts did became nearly extinct.
Could it be that among these giants beasts/lizards there were those giant reptiles we know today as dinosaurs? And could it be possible that these animals still have survived up to the early times of Atlantis? Edgar Cayce is not alone in this claim, as various psychic intuitives made the mention of large, currently extinct animals, who lived in the same time frame as mankind. Trance medium Dan Akkerman asserted that most of current modern scientist wrongly dated the remains of these animals back to millions of years. And also, trance medium Rev. Douglas James Cottrell (PhD) was asked during his sessions “what killed off the dinosaurs?”, and his answer was:
“Those beasts that ran upon the earth itself, that were somewhat an inconvenience to those humans who lived upon the earth at the time. There would be, first: the climatic changes that would be similar to this, but as such there would be the shift at the planets’ rotation, and as such, those that would be existing in humid climates – as most of these beasts did – they would have been shifted or put into very cold climates, and this would have caused their demise, but primarly it would be large masses of water sweeping across the continent itself.
Evidence of this would be the caches of bones found along hills or mountain ranges or ridges, in which their carcasses would have been swept and deposited as you would say. When you find them in large groupings, these are not pawns that they have fallen into, it is that their bodies had been swept across the mass of land as large waves have come across the landmass, and they would have drowned, you would say.”

Current modern science is under the assumption that all species of dinosaurs abruptly became fully extinct some 65 million years ago, and that no man ever lived when dinosaurs where around. This would be because no remains were found that dated back to much earlier times. However, could it be possible their datings were, for whatever reason, more or less off the hook? The earth was quite active in the past, and because of: tectonic activity, dramatic climate changes, the possibility and consideration of pole shifts and floods, one could not always say that: “the deeper the fossilized bones of a dinosaur where found, the older it must be”. Fossilized bones are bones that are turned into stone, and stone as a material itself cannot be directly dated by any currently known dating technique. Scientists could be wrong in their findings that these animals became fully extinct millions of years ago, as there could be the possibility that at least some species may have survived much longer.
There could be certain clues, found in our myths, legends and folklore, that some, possibly small number of dinosaur species might have survived a lot longer, even up to medieval times. The taxon “dinosauria” was formally named in 1842 by paleontologist Sir Richard Owen, but before these times these fearful beasts were possibly already mentioned in the myths and legends of various old and ancient civilizations as “dragons”. Large lizards like the komodo dragon still live up to this day, and as with crocodiles, lizards, snakes, turtles and sharks; these species already existed millions of years ago. So why would we consider it to be impossible that other large reptiles could have survived a lot longer than previously thought?
Dragons are mentioned in Norse, Greek and Chinese mythology and in medieval legends such as St. George and the Dragon. According to description and illustrations these were often slender, serpent- or lizard-like creatures, often with four paws and sometimes with wings, and while they were not exceptionally huge proportions, they still were deadly predators. Some medieval depictions of dragons are looking much like the dragons as depicted in Chinese art. (See for example this image from the work “Roman de Brut” by the 14th century poet Wace.) The dragon is also part of the animals from the Chinese zodiac, where the other animals are non-mythological creatures, which could suggest that the dragon was also once seen as a non-mythological creature.
Dragons were also mentioned in both the Old and the New Testament of the Bible. Its original Old-Hebrew is “Tanniyn” which is generally translated to: dragon, serpent, or sea monster.In the “Book of Job”, there is a list of impressive real animals which includes the “Behemoth” (see Job 40:15-24) and the “Leviathan” (see the books Job, Psalm and Isaiah). During medieval times the Behemoth had been interpret as an elephant until the French Protestant pastor Samuel Bochart suggested in his “Hierozoicon” (1663) that it could be a hippopotamus, and remained the most common interpretation so far. The suggestion of a dinosaur has only arisen in relatively modern times. The scarce description of the behemoth is that of a huge grass eating animal, like a sauropod dinosaur like the Diplodocus. The Leviathan is described as a powerful serpent-like sea creature with limbs, which could refer to the Plesiosaur or the more fearful looking Mosasaur, both huge prehistoric sea creatures. Interestingly enough, Dan Akkerman’s readings mention that the story in the “Book of Job” took place during the even older pre-Atlantean times of Lemuria (900,000 BCE to 250,000 BCE – according to Edgar Cayce).
Among the apocrypha, there is the story of “Bel and the Dragon”, where the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar kept a great dragon in the temple of the (false) diety Bael. This dragon might have looked like the animal which is now known as the “mushhushshu”, which was depicted in ancient Babylon art for centuries, and also was shown at walls of the “Ishtar Gate” from Babylon. (See the chapter “Legendary Creatures”.)
One of the many Ica Stones.
One of the stones seems to be a map of the world including the large continent of Atlantis.
During the 1500s, Spanish Conquistadors brought back stories that there were stones with strange creatures carved on them found in a cave near Ica, Peru. They were believed to be ceremonial burial stones from the Nazca culture. Some of the stones were even brought back to Spain. In his work: “Relacion de antique dades d’este reyno del Peru”, Indian chronicler Juan de Santa Cruz Pachucuti Llamgui already wrote in the year 1571 about these strange engraved stones from Ica, long before the very first remains of a dinosaur were recognized in the early 19th century. These stones were called “Manco” and were found in the “Kingdom of Chperu”-tomb in Chinchayunga.
The Ica stones were popularized in 1970 by Dr. Javier Cabrera, a Peruvian medical doctor who received an engraved stone as a birthday gift. In thirty-five years, he had collected over 11,000 engraved stones. The clearly illustrated andesite stones are depicting humans, dinosaurs (of the Jurassic type), even humans riding and fighting with dinosaurs, advanced technology like telescopes, maps of the earth (including what very much looks like the lost continent of Atlantis), ritual and sexual depictions, and more.
Research has shown that erosion of the images on the stone was minimal, therefore it is believed by many they couldn’t be very old. However, the oxidation in the carvings of one of the Ica stones has been dated to at least 55,000 years old, which places its origins right within the time frame given by Edgar Cayce when dinosaurs still would have roamed on the earth and co-existed with man.

In 1944 in Acámbaro, Mexico, there allegedly had been found several thousands of small ceramic figurines in the form of dinosaurs, and humans riding them. They are generally regarded as a hoax, because it was rumored that these kind of figures where still being made by traditional artists in more recent and modern times. Though, this does not exclude the possibility that these kind of figures could be based on much older ones.
It is often said that there is no reliable evidence for the validity of these figures as actual ancient artifacts. In 1955, outcomes of radio-carbon dating of these figures in New Jersey showed an age between 1,600 BCE and 1,110 CE. More surprisingly, an additional 18 pieces were dated by the University of Pennsylvania at around 2,500 BCE. (Source: http://mexicanarcheology.tripod.com)
Depiction of a dinosaur in a Buddhist temple?

At the ruins of an ancient Buddhist temple called Ta Prohm, near Angkor Wat in Cambodia, there is a certain stone relief depicting humans, various animals and what seems to be mythological creatures. Around these animals we can see decorations that may represent cycles of creation, possible related to the evolution of these animals. Among these animals, there is one particular animal which seems to have plates on his back, just like a Stegosaurus.
These plates would be too small for a stegosaurus however and they would definitely not be on the tail. Although it is not very clear, it is more likely that these plates were meant to be part of the surrounding ornaments. Also, the head is too large for any kind of stegosaurus we know today, which actually had a relatively small head. There are people who think it depicts a rhinocerus instead, especially the Sumatran rhinocerus because its short horn. The problem with this idea is that the rhinocerus always has a very thin and short tail, unlike the thick tail in the pictures above. Because of the large head, the heavy build and the absence of a horn, I personally believe it looks more like a kind of toxodon instead, which was an animal that according to archaeology became extinct at the end of the Pleistocene, which was around 12,000 years ago.
Author Dr. Cedric Leonard pointed out in his book: “A Geological Study of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge” (1979) that Wegeners theory about the shifting of continents, now known as “plate tectonics“, does not mean that a mid-Atlantic continent was an impossibility, as this is often thought. Leonard shows that even if all continents were once part of one single huge continent 200 million years ago, there would be still sufficient room for another large continent in the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean.
Edgar Cayce once made a prediction that portions of Atlantis could “rise” above the sea level in the year 1968 or 1969. From reading 958-3:
“…Poseidia will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again. Expect it in sixty-eight and sixty-nine (’68 and ’69); not so far away!”
The “Bimini Road” is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas, off the coast of Florida. It consists of a 0.5 mile (0.8 km) long, northeast-southwest linear feature, composed of roughly rectangular to sub-rectangular limestone blocks. It looks like a long, artificially created stone wall that once could have been above the sea level.
Though many researchers dismiss the Bimini Road as a fully natural formation, any structure that would be affected by a thousand years of water erosion and the growing of sea weed would look naturally, of course. But the curious things are there were found large stones that were piled up onto each other, that certain blocks were cut in a rectangular form, and what seems to be tool marks on numerous blocks, which adds to the evidence that these possibly were artificial, man-made structures. (See the documentary Search for Edgar Cayce’s Atlantis on Youtube.)
Because of its discovery by plane in 1968, various authors that had written about the Edgar Cayce readings erroneously assumed that these formations in this area must have been once part of the island of Poseidia. However, the Edgar Cayce reading clearly stated that, after the island of Poseidia had sunk, its mountain tops had became the islands of the Azores, and not those of the islands of Bimini. Poseidia would have lain largely a little south and west of the Azores. Also, the sea levels around the Azores islands are known to be slowly rising since at least 1939, while the Bahamas have not.
This is not to say that there would nothing to be found in the area of the Bimini Road according to the Edgar Cayce readings. In fact he actually mentioned that in the Bimini area there could be found records of some kind were kept which would be specific to the methods of construction of the “great crystal”, or “firestone”. From Cayce Reading 440-5:
“As indicated [see 996-12], the records of the manners of construction of same are in three places in the earth, as it stands today:  In the sunken portions of Atlantis, or Poseidia, where a portion of the temples may yet be discovered, under the slime of ages of sea water –  near what is known as Bimini, off the coast of Florida. And  in the temple records that were in Egypt, where the entity later acted in cooperation with others in preserving the records that came from the land where these had been kept.”
(If we leave out the numbers ,  and  in the text above, we can see what caused the confusion that the island of Poseidia would have thought to have been situated in the Bimini region instead of the region of the Azores.)

In the beginning of 2009, a grid pattern existing of what looks like a grid of neatly organized “lines” had been spotted by aeronautical engineer Bernie Bamford, while browsing the digital ocean maps with Google Earth (seen in the images above). This grid can be found near the Cruiser Tablemount at the Canary Basin, located in the neighboring of the west coast of Morocco (31 20’N, 24 19’W). There had been some speculation whether or not this pattern could be related to Atlantis, until a spokesman from Google explained a few days later that these lines where actually “boat mapping lines”:
“What users are seeing is an artifact of the data collection process,” a Google spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement. “Bathymetric (or sea-floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor. The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data. The fact that there are blank spots between each of these lines is a sign of how little we really know about the world’s oceans.”
“The area reflects a mixture of bathymetric data from sonar and satellite altimetry, which provides an estimate of the ocean floor topography based on wave height. The intersection of these two data sets, which don’t align perfectly, is what produces the appearance of a street grid. Similar grid lines can be found in other parts of the ocean where the sea floor has yet to be completely mapped, such as near Hawaii.”
(Source: InformationWeek, February 20, 2009)
However, this exact grid pattern was still clearly visible on the later image data from 2010 and 2011. If these were boat lines, would this mean that these boats followed the exact pattern and were repeating the very same mistakes? It is more likely that these later images only recaptured the satellite data and kept using the sonar data from previous years. If the sonar data was actually new it would convince me that there really is something down there from an ancient civilization. Curiously, when the image data from 2012 went online, it showed a lot less detail in this particular area compared to the image data from previous years.
In an article dated from February 2th, 2012, Scripps News actually made a reference to this data:
“The original version of Google Ocean was a newly developed prototype map that had high resolution but also contained thousands of blunders related to the original archived ship data,” said David Sandwell, a Scripps geophysicist. “UCSD undergraduate students spent the past three years identifying and correcting the blunders as well as adding all the multibeam echosounder data archived at the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado.”
“The Google map now matches the map used in the research community, which makes the Google Earth program much more useful as a tool for planning cruises to uncharted areas,” Sandwell added.
For example, the updated, more precise data corrects a grid-like artifact on the seafloor that was misinterpreted in the popular press as evidence of the lost city of Atlantis off the coast of North Africa.”

Actually, although certainly not as clear as on the images from previous years, if one looks close enough, the same rectangular grid still can be seen on the image data from 2012. It seems to show a lot less detail when compared to the previous ones, and these light blue patternless rectangles (when the image is zoomed out enough) could indicate that a lot of image data had been removed in that particular area. The absence of certain bumps at the seabed within the pattern – which had been there before – would suggest that certain images were removed instead of replaced by more recent ones. Also, it could be that an overlay filter was added to blur these lines that, according to Google spokesmen, were just image errors.
Could this be what David Sandwell means with: “identifying and correcting the blunders”; the removal or omission of these details? Could it be that Google simply manipulated these images by removing a lot of the sonar data, instead of re-acquiring this kind of data again to get it right? How could the omission of data really give a more precise map?
Nevertheless, if this image data would have been just moderately accurate all the time, this area could indeed once have been been part of an ancient civilization. From the looks of it, these rectangular forms reasonably could not be the tops of buildings or megalithic blocks, otherwise some of these would be over eight miles long (about fifty times the size of a city block in New York City). A more realistic possibility is that these might have been large canals, used for the irrigation of farmland, as these these lines might be deep grooves in the sea bed. It is known that the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians both used irrigation techniques, and Plato also mentioned in is dialogues about Atlantis that the island of Atlantis also made use of this.
