Impressive research, interesting omissions,
This review is from: The Atlantis Blueprint: Unlocking the Mystery of a Long-Lost Civilisation (Hardcover)
Was Atlantis buried beneath the Antarctic 9,600 years ago? Flem-Ath and Wilson seek to prove by geology, geometry, astronomy and selective analysis of the subject's literature mans' earthly existence could encompass 100,000 years. The usual suspects are present; Tula, Easter Island, Stonehenge and Rosslyn, but enhanced by previously undiscussed additions all logically connected to the Great Pyramid at Gisa. Such large coverage of the available literature surprises with the omission of the undersea cave paintings discovered in the South of France, believed to date back 40,000 years. The skilled comprehension of perspective tangibly supports the theory of highly intelligent, scientifically knowledgeable ancestors. It is not explained how so much of this expertise was lost, for so many millennium, in all parts of the world. Despite this lacuna the narrative flows as a sea bound travelogue between continents and the bizarre discoveries of intrepid explorers. Whether inspecting the "Mystery spheres" at Costa Rica or puzzling through the moving Poles of the earth which placed Lhasa on the equator, plausible explanations will provoke a mixture of thought, for some acceptance and others probably a large pinch of incredulity. The amount of research is impressive as is the exposure of bigotry espoused by both religious and scientific institutions who choose not to examine facts or theories on their proven merit, thus provide a worthwhile contribution. The authors should be commended for bravery in publishing their findings.
