Atlantis Uncovered
The Origins of Civilizations Lie at the Bottom of the Ocean

There is a theory that the origins of civilizations lie at the bottom of the ocean. That there was once a great kingdom called Atlantis home to an advanced and sophisticated society. The story goes that it perished in a flood around 12,000 years ago but a few survivors escaped in ships and brought civilization to the primitive peoples around the world.

This episode suggests that various underwater structures and ruins found around the globe may have been used by extraterrestrials such as the temple ruins found under Lake Titicaca in Peru the geometric structures of Yonaguni off the coast of Japan, and ancient Indian texts that allegedly describe other sunken cities yet to be discovered.

There are many unsolved mysteries in this world of ours. Many, but not all, were made up to explain the unknown. Over the ages, many people have tried to prove these mysteries right, and in some cases, wrong.

Many have claimed stories and eye-witness accounts to be hoaxes used to excite people and the media.

Some mysteries might have some basis in fact, though. One of these mysteries, as many have thought for more than two centuries, is Atlantis.

Atlantis was said to be a wonderful, wealthy community outside the Pillars of Hercules (Straits of Gibraltar), as written by the Greek philosopher/poet, Plato around 300-400 B.C.

Plato wrote about Atlantis in his two dialogues, the Timaeus and the Critias. Plato also wrote that he had heard the story from Solon, who heard it from the Egyptian priests. Solon was another famous philosopher in Greece at the time.

Plato described that Atlantis was a wealthy and fruitful community with many advanced structures and cities. He said that the people of Atlantis and its royal line were very wealthy because they could mine the mineral orichalch, which was as expensive as gold.

Atlantis also was said to be filled with beautiful trees and other natural scenery. The Atlantians were also said to be masters of warfare, and once tried to invade Greece. Eventually, the people of Atlantis became greedy, and thus the legend states the continent of Atlantis sunk under the sea.

Atlantis: Secret Star Mappers of A Lost World

Lost Human History! Submerged Megalithic Sites! Ancient Advanced Technology! Scientists are now discovering at the bottom of the earth's oceans stunning evidence of Atlantis that pre-dates the last ice age.

Submerged megalithic sites have been discovered that may be the remains of the lost ancient civilization of Atlantis. One thing is certain, what you are about to see in this amazing film can only be described as miraculous.

Scientists present new evidence that Atlantis was an ancient seafaring culture with advanced knowledge of astronomy, global mapping and complex mathematics. 

Includes the facts about this amazing mystery along with a fascinating series of spellbinding interviews with researchers:
  • Graham Hancock
  • John Anthony West
  • Michael Cremo
  • David Childress
  • James Nienhuis
  • Maxine Asher
  • Crichton Miller
  • William Henry

As continental drift became more widely accepted during the 1960s, and the increased understanding of plate tectonics demonstrated the impossibility of a lost continent in the geologically recent past, most “Lost Continent” theories of Atlantis began to wane in popularity.

Plato scholar Dr. Julia Annas, Regents Professor of Philosophy at the University of Arizona, had this to say on the matter: The continuing industry of discovering Atlantis illustrates the dangers of reading Plato.

For he is clearly using what has become a standard device of fiction—stressing the historicity of an event (and the discovery of hitherto unknown authorities) as an indication that what follows is fiction.

The idea is that we should use the story to examine our ideas of government and power. We have missed the point if instead of thinking about these issues we go off exploring the sea bed. The continuing misunderstanding of Plato as historian here enables us to see why his distrust of imaginative writing is sometimes justified.

Kenneth Feder points out that Critias's story in the Timaeus provides a major clue. In the dialogue, Critias says, referring to Socrates' hypothetical society: And when you were speaking yesterday about your city and citizens, the tale which I have just been repeating to you came into my mind, and I remarked with astonishment how, by some mysterious coincidence, you agreed in almost every particular with the narrative of Solon.

Feder quotes A. E. Taylor, who wrote, "We could not be told much more plainly that the whole narrative of Solon's conversation with the priests and his intention of writing the poem about Atlantis are an invention of Plato's fancy."
