Product Description

Review

"Rand and Rose Flem-Ath's "Atlantis Beneath the Ice" is a fascinating and compelling read. Piling tantalising amounts of ancient history, along with modern scientific theories, into the mix with the ancient idea of Atlantis, is sure to draw in the new reader-and the Atlantis know-it-alls will come away with a few surprises. The melding of myth, science and the endearing legend of Atlantis, proves to be one tasty brew for the mind and the soul."

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Flem-Aths have taken all considerations, situations, world views - mythological and scientific - into account and come up with startling conclusions which show, for the first time perhaps, the unbiased eyes of serious scientific researchers and not pure flights of imagination.
Imagination has been brought to bear on the subject matter, however, in a surprisingly sensible way: instead of viewing the written historical 'evidence' provided by Plato with present day eyes, they have managed to conduct such comprehensive research that they are able to present 'the facts' of the writing as they would have been originally seen by the peoples of 'The World' who read it *at the time it was written*, which gives an entirely different view of the clues given to the location of Atlantis.
Atlantis was placed in the Atlantic Ocean, beyond the Pillars of Heracles. Simple enough. Except that location to us, *now* is severely limited in comparison to where it had to possibility of being at the time the evidence first came to light (in the time of the Greek, Solon, c. 638-559 B.C.) At that time the 'World was thought to be a circularish island in the midst of a vast ocean. The Pillars of Heracles, at the Western end of the Mediterranean Sea was considered to be the furthest reaches of the known world. The 'Atlantic' ocean was the entire ocean, not the part of it that is named N.Atlantic and S.Atlantic now.
This is just one point among many and in conjunction with the evidence of the vastly devastating Earth Crust Displacements, I found the research and conclusions drawn from it, compelling and thought-provoking.
Whether you believe or not, this book is definitely worth the read.

The book combines a comprehensive survey of ancient myth and oral tradition with down-to-earth science and remarkable cartography. The feeling one has is "of course! - why didn't that occur to us before?" Recent reappraisal of the meaning, purpose and date of various structures and artifacts (particularly in Egypt) is helping to loosen up our ideas about the evolution and history of mankind, but the continent of Atlantis - the homeland of an antediluvian society - has always been regarded as a mythical dream. This book helps to explain WHY and HOW we've missed a very important point. It's a first-rate contribution to the cool and objective debate concerning a land now lost, but not forgotten.

Probably everybody during their own lives, sooner or later, is going to hear something about Atlantis. This is quite a fascinating subject and I believe that Rand Flem Ath has presented one of the most convincing arguments for its location. Could scenario/hypothesis described in this book be true (that the remains of Atlantis may be found beneath the ice of lesser Antarctica)? I would like to see somebody to try to disprove it, as both authors have done quite a compelling job of presenting the evidence for their case. If you are interested in old maps or where did the maps that that show pre Ice-Age come from, this is also a good book to read. Some of the other reviews on Amazon.com, offer a better summary of the book, so there is no point of repeating that here again

Obviously something did happened on this planet, about 12000-16000 years ago, something that we as a human race have almost forgotten (or we, as humanity, just don't want to remember). All we have left are myths, and in those myths memories of those events live on. It would be simply irresponsible just to ignore them, or treat them simply only as "just" myths. I think they are more that. They are existing memories of the "lost civilization", which simply disappeared due to some catastrophic event that happened long time ago. There are many other myths across the globe (probably about few hundred of them), describing similar scenarios, but Atlantis is probably the most famous one. It's a shame that most of orthodox archaeologists and historians simply treat this whole subject as a bunch of "myths" - just because it doesn't fit their own theories.

Format: Paperback
The legend of Atlantis was first recorded by the Greek philosopher Plato. He relates how his ancestor Solon, the famous Athenian law-giver, received the legend from one of the most learned of the Egyptian priests. This priest descibed Atlantis as a high altitude, mountainous island continent in the 'real ocean' which was destroyed by earthquakes and floods of extraordinary violence. This description makes perfect sense when we view the world's geography from Antarctica. Antarctica is a high altitude, mountainous, island continent in what oceanographers call the 'World Ocean.' Ancient maps depict the actual shape of parts of Antarctica that are today under ice. One of these maps, Kircher's 1665 map of Atlantis, is an amazingly accurate map of Antarctica without is ice.
The common assumption is that Antarctica has been under ice for millons of years and therefore the idea that people might have once lived on this island continent is absurd. But a little thought on the matter sheds doubt on this assumption. We know that every place on the earth's surface has a corresponding spot on the opposite side of the globe. The North Pole is on the opposite side of the globe to the South Pole. New Zealand is almost on the opposite side of the globe to the U.K. There is even an island off the south coast of New Zealand called "Antiopodes" which is very near to being opposite to London. In each case, the climate is similar - New Zealand is temperate and so is England. We don't find cases where one area is polar and the opposite side of the globe is temperate. Lesser Antarctica (the size of Western Europe) is on the opposite side of the globe to Alaska, Siberia, Canada's Yukon and the former land bridge known as 'Beringa.
