I thought it important to start a topic on this as there is a great deal of misinformation about Atlantis on the Internet and even the best researchers are occasionally "suckered in" by it. This topic intends to deal with some of the sensational claims made about Atlantis by people who, for the most part, are into the Atlantis story for profit, fame, or simply are so earnest in their belief for Atlantis that they don't bother to check their third party sources for accuracy.
I encourage everyone to contribute to this. Not only for the sake of unmasking certain "hoaxers," but when bad information is repeated often enough, it then is considered "fact," which cheapens the overall integrity of the case being made here.

For simplicity's sake, I am not going to deal with any of the so-called "psychic" or "channelled" information when it comes to Atlantis. I AM going to deal with some of the various hucksters who claim to have found it one day, only to suspiciously disappear from the news the next. Either someone is killing these people before they get the chance to present their "evidence" (a possibility), or they disappear on purpose so they don't have to make their case.

Atlantis "Discovery" Gets Sunk
by D. Trull


Enigma Editor

dtrull@parascope.com




The island of Bimini in the Bahamas has long been a favorite hotspot in
the search for Atlantis. Speculation has centered around a supposed
"Bimini Road" (or "Bimini Wall"), a structure often said to have been
paved on the ocean floor by Atlanteans, which is actually a natural
formation of limestone. There have also been unfounded reports of stone
columns and giant pyramids in the island's waters. Now another claim has
surfaced of a great discovery at Bimini, and it appears that it will
prove just as insubstantial as the Atlantis theories that have come and
gone before.

Aaron Du Val, president of the Miami-based Egyptology Society, recently
announced that a team of underwater explorers has found the ruins of
12,000-year-old temples off the coast of Bimini. Du Val claimed the
structures bear markings and architectural specifications that match
well-known megaliths in Egypt, South America and other parts of the
world. The noted similarities to Egyptian ruins included distinctive
quarry marks on the rocks and the same geometric angles present in the
Great Pyramid of Giza. Other markings were said to match the Altamira
cave paintings of Spain. To make his claims even more fantastic, Du Val
said the Bimini ruins contained "exact orbital plots of the planets and
what seem to have been intricate star shafts, metal-coated walls, and
intermingled stones of various colors."

In the initial press release, dated July 6, 1997, Du Val made no
specific reference to Atlantis. Later, in an interview conducted by a
new age organization called New Heaven New Earth, he stopped short of
claiming that these ruins were evidence of the legendary sunken city,
although he seemed to relish the possibility.

"Atlantis is a pretty touchy subject," Du Val said. "Maybe this will be
the trigger to bring more people forth to explore ideas that have been
taboo in the past. Megalithic structures are not supposed to be in the
Bahamas. These are closer to what you would find at Giza than what you
would find in Mexico or Peru, which is very strange. People are saying
unbelievable things like it could force the re-interpretation of the
course of human history."

Du Val was quick to agree when the interviewer noted how his
announcement seemed to fulfill the predictions of alleged prophet Edgar
Cayce, one of the top Atlantis advocates of all time.

"This discovery fits right with his predictions," Du Val said. "Now we
are not saying it is Atlantis, but it sure is strange how these findings
not only match Cayce's predictions but Plato's writings as well, even to
the metal-coated walls."

In fact, Cayce actually prophesied -- among other things -- that
Atlantis would rise again to the surface in 1968 or 1969. Plato's
description of Atlantis was most likely a reference to the Minoan island
of Santorini, near Crete, which was devastated by a volcano.

Du Val remained tight-lipped on crucial details of the Bimini ruins,
including the exact location of the findings and the names of the
explorers who found them. He explained that he needed to work out
arrangements with museums and the Bahamian government to protect the
site before its location was made public. Du Val planned a press
conference for July 25, promising full disclosure and presentation of
video tapes and photographs of the ruins. He also stated that he had
never claimed the ruins were Atlantis, apparently to combat the
"Atlantis fever" word of his announcement had triggered on the Internet.

Du Val's claims garnered a stern rebuke from Dr. Paul Pettennude, an
underwater archaeologist with the Maya Underwater Research Center, who
is intimately familiar with the waters around Bimini. In a statement
issued to New Heaven New Earth, he listed several reasons why nothing
like the ruins Du Val describes could possibly exist. Among the points
of Pettennude's argument:

-- "Bimini is not the lost world. It is a very, very popular resort
destination and thousands of divers visit it every year. Every available
reef is dived frequently and nothing else has turned up."

-- Equipment used by the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute of
Melbourne, Florida, and the Rosenteil School of Oceanography at the
University of Miami "is very sophisticated and there is nothing but
known wrecks being found."

-- "In 1986, NASA had the Navy scour everything north of Cuba to north
of North Carolina looking for pieces of the exploded Challenger shuttle.
Every square foot of bottom down to 6,000 feet was examined and every
piece of the wreck larger than a dinner plate was recovered."

-- "The U.S. Navy maintains a system called SOSUS which cost $16 billion
to secure the ocean floor from foreign subs. It paints a picture of
everything from the bottom up."

-- "The reefs off Bimini from 300 feet up to the surface are less than
14,000 years old. This is the level to which the water rose at the end
of the last ice age. There could not be a sunken city because the Bahama
Islands are not shrinking but actually growing inches per year. This
would have made any ancient city unstable."

-- "Divers could not have found a city below 250 feet without special
diving gases. ... There are only a handful of people in the world
trained and certified to dive these research blends. I am one of them
and the group is a close knit family. No one has any knowledge nor has
been asked to find an ancient city."

Pettennude also mentioned the spurious "Bimini Road" and noted that the
man who discovered it in 1968, J. Manson Valentine, was one of his
professors at the University of Miami. Another red herring that has
thrown off Atlantis seekers at Bimini are stone pillars on the ocean
floor that resemble shattered marble columns. These artifacts were
actually formed by barrels of cement and similar materials that sunk
from ships and hardened underwater, leaving stone casts after the wood
staves of the barrels rotted away.

The weight of the evidence certainly seems to be stacked against Du Val.
As it turned out, he canceled the July 25 press conference at the last
minute. He indicated that more time was necessary to ensure the safety
of the ruins, lest they fall victim to looters and vandals. Du Val
rescheduled the press conference for August 8, but it was postponed a
second time.

After extensive research, ParaScope has found no further information on
this supposed discovery or any subsequent public remarks from Du Val.
Obviously, the mass media has made no announcement on the discovery of
Atlantis. The only news outlet that seems to be following the story is
the web site of New Heaven New Earth, whose news bulletins are available
to members only -- at a cost of $100 a year. News concerning the Bimini
discovery is to be posted by NHNE "four weeks after our subscribers have
received it." At ParaScope, where we believe the news should always be
free for everyone, we may have more to report on this story after all
the details have surfaced.

I printed this three years ago when I was a member of Atlantis Rising:

U.S. NAVY FOUND ATLANTIS IN 1973!
Underwater city is 19 miles off coast of Spain!
By VINCENZO SARDI

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Navy has known the exact location of Atlantis since 1973 and has even sent nuclear subs to explore the sunken ruins, a new book charges!

"For more than a quarter of a century, the United States government has kept this extraordinary discovery a secret from the American people," claims researcher Jeremy Horwick, authorof the upcoming book, Mission: Atlantis: What the Navy Really Knows about the Lost Continent.


Author: Jeremy Howick
According to Horwick, who cites once-classified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and interviews with former seamen, a Navy sub discovered the ruins of the fabled civilization while doing maneuvers off the coast of Spain on July 25, 1973.


"The ruins are about 5,500 feet deep and are quite vast, extending for at least 19 square miles," the D.C.-based author says.

While the captain of the vessel immediately recognized the significance of the find, he received orders to keep mum from the highest levels of the government.

Horwick has evidence that this order came from then-President Nixon, who decided that keeping the discovery secret was in the best national security interests of America.

"Nixon's advisers, including Henry Kissinger, were quite aware of the legends surrounding Atlantis, that it had achieved a highly sophisticated level of technology before the catastrophe that sent it to the bottom of the ocean," says Horwick. "They knew that during World War II, Hitler had sent his U-boats on a desperate hunt for Atlantis, believing that he might retrieve that technology and use it to build a secret weapon that would help Germany achieve victory.

"President Nixon felt that there might be technology Amer-ica could use to win the Cold War and he decided to try to salvage it.

"He didn't want to give the Russians a head's up with any kind of public announcement, out of fear they would plunder it first."

Since that time, the Navy has launched four expeditions to Atlantis, the latest in 1997 -- and has retrieved not only cultural artifacts but scientific machinery, the author claims.

"The Atlantean technology is based on principles very far afield from anything Western science has developed, apparently involving mind-over-matter," Horwick says.

"Some of the latest military hardware we're seeing now, including the Stealth Bomber and the Star Wars missile-defense system now being advanced by President Bush, incorporate technology salvaged from Atlantis."

ARCHAEOLOGIST FINDS 12,000-YEAR-OLD MAGAZINE . . . FROM ATLANTIS!
By MARSH FENLEY

A leading archaeologist claims to have found a glossy, 48-page magazine
that was published on the Lost Continent of Atlantis in 10,000 B.C. --
thousands of years before the ancient Egyptians figured out how to
scratch crude hieroglyphic "pictographs" on crumbly papyrus scrolls!
In a letter to the prestigious Antiquities Review journal, Dr. Kenton
Croler says The Atlantean Star-Sun was "lushly produced for an audience
of highly educated readers" and "provides tempting clues" to suggest
America's own Indians are direct descendants of the advanced
civilization.
He also drew chilling parallels between our modern war on terror and
events that may have led to the collapse of Atlantis, which appears to
have been reeling under a series of strikes by Al Qaeda-like terrorists
armed with a nightmarish array of nuclear, chemical, biological and
"magnetic" weapons, one of which "appears to have disrupted all but the
most primitive and violent urges of the human brain."
And that's not all. Croler, who found the near-perfectly preserved
periodical sealed in a bronze urn, says the magazine dated "Lunar Cycle
62,998" contains a treasure trove of news items, features, hand-drawn
images, cartoons and advertisements that provide a fascinating sneak
peek into daily life on the Lost Continent, including:

* A report on the most dangerous "flyway" on the Continent -- and the
264 hover-vehicle accidents that helped "Air Route 12" lay claim to the
title.
* An advertisement for a "holographic television receiver" that, instead
of relying on "old-fashioned screen technology" such as we use today,
projected three-dimensional images into the center of a home theater,
enabling viewers to "walk around" actors and entertainers and even "see
them from behind."
* A humorous drawing and short article on the magazine's search for the
Lost Continent's fattest snakes and rats, which appear to have been
revered as living gods in some quarters.
* An expose on hidden design flaws in the government's new "citizen
transport tubes" that, it was alleged, were "ripping the heads off
children" and "other people of short stature."
* A somewhat cryptic and possibly threatening appeal for more citizens
to voluntarily undergo "brain-chip surgery" to link them to the "central
library" before "we have to do it for you."
* A call for a ban on dangerous "backyard reactors" that appear to have
been in wide use by homeowners who were hoping to reduce their power
bills.
* A "health page" touting medical breakthroughs, including the
development of a cure for male-pattern baldness that testing had shown
to be equally effective as a "morning after" abortion pill and topical
treatment for eczema.
* A classifieds page selling everything from collectibles and fishing
equipment to human infants, boats and at least 50 different varieties of
narcotic and hallucinogenic drugs and beverages.
"What I find so intriguing," the Washington-based Croler said in his
letter to the journal, "is that the magazine not only gives use a
glimpse into the past, it also presents us with some rather unsavory
implications for our future.
"The parallels between terrorist activity then and terrorist activity
now are quite clear, as are the lessons to be learned: If terrorists
destroyed the greatest civilization the world has ever known, they can
destroy us, too."
Croler plans to publish a comprehensive report on the magazine, which
sophisticated dating techniques confirm is between 11,500 and 12,000
years old, by late summer.
In the meantime, he says early research indicates the periodical was
written in what appears to have been a lost "but fairly easy to
translate" Native American dialect based on an alphabet far more
advanced than the crude "picture writing" Indians were using when
Europeans arrived in the New World in the 15th century.
"The suggestion is that with the collapse of Atlantis, survivors made
their way to what we now call the United States."

LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS FOUND
- Underneath Sahara Desert!

THE LOST City of Atlantis is not deep beneath the ocean -- the ancient
metropolis is buried under the sands of the Sahara Desert!

Archaeologist Dr. Carla Sage points out that according to ancient
accounts, the Mycenaean, Cretan and Egyptian civilizations all traded
with Atlantis -- which would have been unlikely if it lay in the North
Atlantic as many believe.

"Atlantis was clearly within easy trading distance of Troy and the other
city states of the Mediterranean," she says. "I believe Atlantis was the
capital of a vast North African empire with ports on the Gulf of Sidra.

"Atlantis was destroyed, not by earthquake, floods or volcanoes, but by
the steady march of desert sands that smothered the civilization.

"The empire did not sink into the sea as is commonly believed -- it was
swallowed by the dunes."

While the theory flies in the face of traditional views of Atlantis, Dr.
Sage points to tantalizing evidence that supports the Sahara model.

Nomadic desert Bedouins, especially after sandstorms, often see marble
columns sticking up out of dunes, notably near the Ahaggar Mountains of
southern Algeria, the British expert reveals.

Even more surprising, scientists have discovered that within
comparatively recent times in geological terms, the Sahara region
enjoyed a temperate climate that would have made it an ideal site for
human civilization.

"Eleven thousand to 12,000 years ago, when the ancient Greeks say
Atlantis flourished, the Sahara was lush, fertile land," Dr. Sage
observes.

"Artwork etched in Saharan rocks at that time depicts giraffes roaming
freely. Archaeologists have also found pictograms of domesticated
cattle, horse-drawn chariots, as well as large caravans -- confirming
that trade played an important role in the region."

But the alarmingly rapid transformation of the region from paradise to
dry desert would have wiped out all agriculture and killed off
livestock.

"More significantly, as sand encroached on the empire, clogging caravan
wheels, it made travel nearly impossible -- which would have put an end
to an empire based on trade," Dr. Sage says.

"It was not until centuries later, around 100 B.C., that people began to
use camels for transportation in the region -- an innovation that came
too late for Atlantis, long since buried and forgotten under the dunes."

A few diehards continue to believe that Atlantis was literally a
continent in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean.

But most modern experts agree that theory was blown out of the water in
1912 when scientist Alfred Wegener demonstrated that the known
continents once fit neatly together like a jigsaw puzzle and have
drifted apart over the eons.

Although Plato, drawing upon earlier accounts, wrote of a watery end to
the great Atlantean civilization, Dr. Sage believes that the ancient
Greek philosopher misinterpreted an Egyptian word meaning "movement of
water."

"It was not water deluging Atlantis, but the departure of water from the
region, that caused the calamity," she says.

Next spring, the expert hopes to lead an international expedition,
including archaeologists from the United States, Britain, France, Egypt
and Saudi Arabia, that will begin combing the 3.5 million-square-mile
desert using high-tech equipment in search of traces of the lost empire.

"I am convinced that buried beneath that vast, arid no-man's-land we
will find Atlantis," Dr. Sage declares.

How I Found the Lost Atlantis, The Source of All Civilization
by Dr. Paul Schliemann
[1912]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On October 20th, 1912, readers of the New York American were regaled with a startling and perhaps history-making story in a lavish two-page spread. Paul Schliemann, grandson of Heinrich Schliemann, the famous archeologist who excavated Mycenae and the legendary city of Troy, revealed that his grandfather on his deathbed produced a mysterious bequest for any of his heirs willing to devote their life to proving the existence of Atlantis. He claimed that he had spent years following up on this and now was about to produce actual physical evidence of the reality of the fabled lost continent. Or was he....

The New York American was one of the newspapers started by William Randolph Hearst which spawned the term 'Yellow Journalism', the predecessor of such distinguished modern supermarket tabloids such as the National Enquirer. Hearst newspapers could be relied upon for banner headlines, sensational scoops, heart-tugging sob stories, and yarns which skirted the boundaries of good taste, if not logic. So in context, this article, which has occasionally been cited as an actual contribution to the study of Atlantis, can be appreciated as merely a diversion on the level of the Bat Boy or Aliens in the Oval Office.

And indeed, this turned out to be a flash-in-the-pan hoax. There was no follow-up book, and Paul Schliemann dropped out of sight as quickly as he emerged. The promised artifacts were never produced, and scholars who worked closely with Heinrich Schliemann confirmed that he had never demonstrated any interest in Atlantis whatsoever.

A close read of this article reveals many howlers that even an armchair archeologist will spot instantly. For instance, "...a collection of objects excavated from Tiahuanaca, in Central America." He misspells Tiahuanaco, and it's in South America. Or how about "...engraved with a sentence in Phoenician hieroglyphics". The Phoenicians used a phonetic writing system, not hieroglyphs. And "the Egyptian and the American pyramids [were] covered with a thick coating of smooth and shining cement", which is completely untrue. Some of the Egyptian pyramids were originally covered with casing stones; none of the American pyramids were encased, let alone with cement. And "In the records of the old Buddhistic Temple at Lhasa there is to be seen an ancient Chaldean inscription"; this is conceivable but unlikely; it would be like finding an illuminated Sanskrit manuscript in an Irish monastery. And so on... Whoever wrote this, they weren't an archeologist; it was probably one of the Hearst hacks. As a matter of fact, the writing is so pulp, the author (whoever he or she is) even apologizes halfway through for being over-dramatic.

In any case, we hope you enjoy this for what it is--a wonderful piece of flim-flam, a slice of Americana.

HOW I FOUND THE LOST ATLANTIS, THE SOURCE OF ALL CIVILIZATION
by Dr. Paul Schliemann
(Column One)

Some days before my grandfather, Dr. Heinrich Schliemann, the real discoverer of the great Mycenean civilization whose history is preserved in the books of Homer, died in Naples in 1890, he left a sealed envelope in care of his closest friends. The envelope bore the following inscription: "This can be opened only by a member of my family who solemnly vows to devote his life to the researches outlined therein."

Just an hour before my grandfather died he asked for a piece of paper and asked for a pencil. He wrote with a trembling hand: "Confidential addition to the sealed envelope. Break the owl-headed vase. Pay attention to the contents. It concerns Atlantis. Investigate the east of the ruins of the temple of Sais and the cemetery in Chacuna Valley. Important. Night approaches--Lebewohl."

He closed it in an envelope and directed the nurse to send it to the friend whom he had entrusted with the other package. This was done.

Although every one was curious as to what the mysterious packets contained, not one of the children or friends dared to break the seals. No one desired to devote his life to something he could know nothing about until too late to recede. The envelopes were deposited in one of the banks of France. After I had studied for some years in Russia, Germany and the Orient, I decided to take up the work of my illustrious grandfather. I decided that what he had felt so important that he had so safeguarded it must be important enough to devote one's life to. In 1906 I took the vow and broke the seals. Within were a number of documents and photographs. The first paper said:

"Whoever opens this must solemnly swear to carry out the work which I have left unfinished. I have come to the conclusion that Atlantis was not only a great territory between America and the west coast of Africa and Europe, but the cradle of all our civilization as well. There has been much dispute between scientists on this matter. According to one group the tradition of Atlantis is purely fictional, founded upon fragmentary accounts of a Deluge some thousands of years before the Christian era. Others declare the tradition wholly historical, but incapable of absolute proof.

"In the included material records, notes and explanations are to be found, the proofs that exist in my mind of the matter. Whoever takes charge of this mission is solemnly obligated to continue my researches and to form a definite statement using as well the matter I leave with this and crediting me with my just dues in the discovery. A special fund is deposited in the Bank of France to be paid to the bearer of the enclosed receipt, and this should pay the expenses of the research. The Almighty be with this great effort.

"HEINRICH SCHLIEMANN."

I cannot in this limited space give all the papers--nor do I care to. But one of the most important from the narrative's standpoint read:

"When in 1873, I made the excavation of the ruins of Troy at Hissarlik and discovered in the Second City the famous 'Treasure of Priam,' I found among that treasure a peculiar bronze vase, of great size. Within it were several pieces of pottery, various small images of peculiar metal, coins of the same metal and objects made of fossilized bone. Some of these objects and the bronze vase were engraved with a sentence in Phoenician hieroglyphics. The sentence read 'From the King Chronos of Atlantis.'

You who read can imagine my excitement! Here was the first, the very first material evidence

(Column Two)

of that great continent whose legend has lived for ages throughout the world. This material I kept secret, eager to make it the basis of investigations which I felt would prove of infinitely more importance than the discovery of a hundred Troys. But first I had to finish the work in which I was engaged, and I was the more eager to do this because I felt that I was sure to find other objects which would bear directly upon the lost continent. I was rewarded for my faith as you will see in the document marked B.

"In 1883 I found the Louvre a collection of objects excavated from Tiahuanaca, in Central America. And among, these I discovered pieces of pottery of exactly the same shape and material and objects of fossilized bone which reproduced line for line those which I had found in the bronze vase of the 'Treasure of Priam'! The similarity could not be a coincidence. The shapes and decorations were to complex for that. It is beyond the range of coincidence for two artists in such widely separated countries as Central America and Crete to make two vases--I mention only one of the objects--of exactly the same shape, the same size and with curious owls' heads arranged in just the same way on each.

"The Central American vases had no Phoenician characters upon them nor writing of any sort. I hurried away to examine again my own objects and by tests and exhaustive examinations became convinced that the inscriptions had been made by other hands after the objects themselves had been manufactured.

"I secured pieces of these simulacrums from Tiahaunaca and subjected them to chemical and microscopic analysis. These tests proved conclusively that both the Central American vases and those from Troy had been made from the same peculiar clay, and I learned later, further and definitively, that this clay does not exist, either in old Phoenicia nor in Central America!

"The metal objects I had analyzed, because I could not recognize what they were made of. The metal was unlike any I had ever seen. The chemical analysis showed the material to be platinum, aluminum and copper--a combination never before found in the remains of the ancients and unknown to-day!

"Objects then, perfectly similar and having unquestionably a common source were found in such widely separated countries as these. The objects themselves are not Phoenician, Mycenean nor Central American. What is the conclusion? That they came to both places from a common centre. The inscription on my objects gave that centre--It was Atlantis!

"That the objects were held in great veneration is shown from their presence among the 'Treasure of Priam' and the special receptacle that held them. Their character left no doubt that they were objects of sacred ceremonies and from the same temple. Were they the remains of a worship which had existed on

(Column Three)

[paragraph continues] Atlantis and which that great land had impressed upon colonies and countries as far apart as ancient Crete and Central America? Were these things sent out by the mother land just as Bibles are sent out to-day from Christendom--and as statutes of Isis and her altar paraphernalia were sent by Egypt to her colonies?

"This extraordinary discovery and my failing health induced me to push more rapidly my investigations. I found in the Museum at St. Petersburg one of the oldest papyrus rolls in existence. It was written in the reign of Pharaoh Sent, of the Second Dynasty, or 4,571 years B. C. It contains a description of how the Pharaoh sent out an expedition 'to the West' in search of traces of the 'Land of Atlantis,' whence '3,350 years ago the ancestors of the Egyptians arrived carrying with themselves all the wisdoms of their native lands.' The expedition returned after five years with the report that they had found neither people nor objects which could give them a clue as to the vanished land. Another papyrus, in the same museum, written by Manetho, the Egyptian historian, gives a reference of a period of '13,900 years as the reign of the sages of Atlantis.' The papyrus places this at the very beginning of Egyptian history; it approximates 16,000 years ago.

"An inscription which I excavated at the Lion Gate at Mycenae in Crete recites that Misor, from whom, according to the inscription, the Egyptians were descended, was the child of Taaut or Thoth, the God of History, and that Taaut was the emigrated son of a 'priest of Atlantis, who having fallen in love with a daughter of King Chronos, escaped and landed after many wanderings in Egypt.' He built the first temple at Sais and there taught the wisdom of his native land. This full inscription is most important, and I have kept it secret. You will find it among the papers marked D."

I cannot go further here into more than a small part of the enormous mass of evidence, and it is material evidence of this continent of Atlantis that my grandfather had collected. I must pass to the end of this remarkable document:

"One of the tables of my Trojan excavation gives also a medical treatise of the Egyptian priests--for there was communication between Crete and Egypt for many centuries--for the removal of cataract from the eye and ulcer from the intestines by means of surgery. I have read almost a similar formula in a Spanish manuscript in Berlin whose writer took it from an Aztec priest in Mexico. That priest had gotten it from an ancient Mayan manuscript.

"In coming to my conclusion I must say that neither the Egyptians nor the Mayan race that made the civilization of Central America before the Aztecs were great navigators. They had no ships to cross the Atlantic. Nor did they. We can dismiss the agency of the Phoenicians

(Column Four)

as a real link between the hemispheres. Yet the similarity of Egyptian and Mayan life and civilization is so perfect that it is impossible to think of it as an accident. We find no such accidents in nature or history. The only possibility is that there was, as the legend says, a great continent that connected what we now call the New World with what we call the old. Perhaps at this time what there was of Europe and America was populated with monsters. Africa possibly had a monkey-like negro race. Man in our sense had not overrun them. But there was a land where civilization as high as that we now know and perhaps higher was flourishing. Its outskirts were the edge of wilderness. It was Atlantis. From Atlantis came the colonies that settled Egypt and Central America.

I realized that I faced a serious problem indeed, despite all the astonishing evidence, greater far than any one dreams, left me by my grandfather. There were other notes and allusions to the material proofs which were in the secret safe in Paris, and besides these was the strict injunction that I should keep the matter secret until I had followed up his instructions and had finished my research.

For six years I have worked indefatigably in Egypt, in Central and South America and in all the archeological museums on the globe. I have discovered Atlantis, I have verified the existence of this great continent and the fact that from it sprang all the civilizations of historic times without a doubt.

In my research I have made a principle to retire to such a seclusion that no periodical could reach me, and no curiosity of the public could disturb me in this serious and important work. I shall pursue the same course until my book is finished. For these reasons I have avoided up to this time all notoriety, through the press and every association with any scientific expeditions. I am an individualist and will do the work in my individual way. However, I have been willing to follow the invitation of this newspaper and to reveal this secret of my illustrious grandfather and to give some of the facts which I have discovered and why I claim to be the discoverer of Atlantis. I proceed to what happened after I read Heinrich Schliemann's documents.

I at once proceeded to investigate the hidden collection in Paris. The owl headed vase was unique, of obviously extraordinarily ancient origin and on it I read the inscription in Phoenician characters: "From the King Chronos of Atlantis." I hesitated for days to break it for I still thought that the last letter of my grandfather might have been the result of a mind weakened by the approach of death. I could not see why it should be broken. It may be that he had found other vases of the kind of Hissarlik and had broken thme. He may have saved this last vase because he felt that

(Column Five)

an absolute proof of the evidence should be the possession of the one who should take up his work. I hesitate to write this because it seems to savor of pure romance. Yet it is absolute truth.

After all I broke it. I was not a little startled when out the bottom of the vase slipped a square of white, silver-like metal upon which were drawn strange figure and an inscription which were not like any hieroglyphs or writings I had ever seen. These were on the head side of the coin or medal. On the obverse side was engraved in ancient Phoenician, "Issued in the Temple of Transparent Walls." How did the metal get in the vase? I do not know. The neck was too small for its insertion, but there it was and it had been imbedded in the clay of the bottom and my grandfather had evidently known it was there.

If the vase was from Atlantis the piece must have come from it too. And yet my examination showed me that the Phoenician letters had been cut in after the object had been under the die that made the face figures. This is a mystery to me even now. But there is the evidence.

Besides this I found in the collection the other material objects which my grandfather had said came from Atlantis. One was a ring of the same peculiar metal as the coins or the medals. There was a strange looking elephant of fossilized bone, an extremely archaic vase and some other objects which I will not discuss now. The map by which the Egyptian captain had sought for Atlantis was there too. I prefer to save these other objects for my extended work--nor could I, under the instructions of my grandfather, tell of them. It is sufficient to say that no scientist can controvert them. The owl vase, the archaic vase, the bronze vase and the ring have the Phoenician inscription. The elephant and coins did not.

My grandfather had written that I should first pay attention to the ruins of the Temple of Sais and the Chucuna Valley in America. I arrived first in Egypt and started to excavate around the ruins of Sais. I worked a long time in vain. I found interesting pieces of antique ceremonial and astronomical uses, but no traces of what I wanted.

But one day, I made the acquaintance of an Egyptian hunter, who showed me a collection of old medals he had found in a sarcophagus in one of the tombs near by. Who can describe my surprise in finding among his collection two of the same design and size of the white medal I had found in the vase of Troy? The figures were not so lain of detail and the inscription was lacking, but they were undoubtedly of the same original as of mine. I procured them from the hunter and I investigated the sarcophagus. It proved to be that of a priest of the First Dynasty! One of the most ancient. But there was nothing else there of interest--to me.

Yet was I not progressing? Here was the coin in the vase of Troy, which, if my grandfather was right, came from Atlantis. And here were two of the same kind in a sarcophagus of a priest of the First Dynasty of the Temple of Sais, the temple which held the records of Atlantis and whose priest had recited them to Solon--their temple which had been founded by a son of Atlantis who had run away with a "daughter of Chronos," the name of which was on the vase of Hissarlik that held the coin! How explain?

I called to my aid two great French geological experts, and we examined the west coast of Africa at the points where my grandfather had indicated where he had believed the ancient Atlantis had touched that land. We

(Column Six)

found the whole shore here covered with volcanic action. Some distance in from the shore those evidences stopped. For many miles it was as though the volcanic action had chopped away land from the coast. Here I found an object of inestimable value to my research. It was a head of a child done in the same metal as that which formed the ring and the medals. It was imbedded in an encrustation of volcanic rock of great age. The chemical analysis showed it to be of exactly the same strange alloy I have described.

The full results of this survey I cannot go into here. They were immensely important, and they are supported by other testimony than my own.

(Column Seven)

I went to Paris and sought the owner of the Central American collection which my grandfather had alluded to. He consented that I break his owl headed vase for the purpose of investigation. I broke the vase.

And out of it slipped a medal exactly the same size and material as the three I had! The only difference was in the arrangement of the hieroglyphs!

Here there were three links: The coins in my grandfather's secret collection. The coin in the Atlantis vase. The coins in the Egyptian sarcophagus. The coin in the vase from Central America. The head from the Moroccan Coast!

I at once went to Central America, to Mexico and to Peru. I have dug up graveyards and excavated in the cities. The cemetery of the Chucuna Valley, where the ancient Chimus are buried, gave me immense material for other clues. I will say that although I found fragments of the owl-headed vases, I found no more medals there. But what I did find was just as important. These are inscriptions which will startle the world. And I found other medals at the Pyramid of Teohuatican in Mexico of the same alloy, but with different script!

I have reasons for saying that the strange medals were used as money in Atlantis forty thousand years ago. These reasons are based not only on my own researches, but upon those of my grandfather which I have not mentioned.

(Column Eight)

[paragraph continues] The "Temple of Transparent Walls" was one of the National Treasuries of the Lost Continent. As the Atlanteans and after them the Egyptians, the Mayans and the Chimus were hieratic nations, it is natural that a temple was considered as the centre and foundation of social, political life as well as the cradle of art, science, education and religion. Among the facts that I have to reveal in my book there are clear indications that of the City of the Golden Gates, as it was called, and two clear references to the Temple of Transparent Walls.

The Atlantean Temple of Transparent Walls was usually a high public place. Its operations were open for the masses. Did the words "transparent" have a symbolic meaning or did there really exist a temple with transparent walls? I do not know. However, I can prove that the Phoenicians got there knowledge of glass making from the "people who lived beyond the pillars of Hercules." It is necessary to say that the country which used the ancient medals as an equivalent of labor had a more advanced currency system than we have at present.

I pass, for lack of space, over the hieroglyphics and other evidences which I have

(Column Nine)

discovered that show that the civilizations of Egypt, of Mycenae, of Central America, South America and the Mediterranean had a common origin. They will be incontrovertible". I pass on to the translation of a Maya manuscript which is part of the famous collection of Le Plongeon, the Troano manuscript. It can be seen in the British Museum. It reads:

"In the year of 6 Kan, on the 11 Muluc, in the Month Zac, there occured terrific earthquakes which continued without interruption until the 13 Chuen. The country of the hills of mud, the Land of Mu, was sacrificed. Being twice upheaved it disappeared during the night, being continually shaken by the fires of the under earth. Being confined these caused the land to sink and rise several times and in various places. At last the surface gave way, and then ten countries were torn asunder and scattered. They sank with their 64,000,000 of inhabitants 8,000 years before the writing of this book."

In the records of the old Buddhistic Temple at Lhasa there is to be seen an ancient Chaldean inscription written about 2,000 years B.C. It reads:

"When the star Bal fell on the place where is now only sea and sky the Seven Cities with their Golden Gates and Transparent Temples quivered and shook like the leaves of a tree in storm. And behold a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces. Agony and cries of the multitude filled the air. They sought refuge in their temples and citadels. And the wise Mu, the hieratic of Ra-Mu, arose and said to them: 'Did not I predict all this?' And the women and the men in their precious stones and shining garments lamented: 'Mu, save us.' And Mu replied: 'You shall die together with your slaves and your riches and from your ashes will arise new nations. If they forget they are superior, not because of what they put on, but of what they put out, the same lot will befall them!' Flame and smoke choked the words of Mu. The land and its inhabitants were torn to pieces and swallowed by the depths in a few months."

How account for these two stories--one from Thibet, the other from Central America, each mentioning the same cataclysm and each referring to the land of Mu?

When I throw open all the facts that I have, there will be no mystery about it.

Let me now go back for a moment to that document of my grandfather which I have quoted and which was the basis of my research. After telling of the inscription which

(Column Ten)

he had found in the Dome Tombs of Mycenae, he continued:

"The religion of Egypt was pre-eminently sun worship. Ra was the sun god of the Egyptians. The religion of the Mayas in Central America was the same. Ra-Na was the sun god of the ancient Peruvians.

"My long archeological studies of various nations have proven that all of them show their earliest childhood and maturity. But I have failed to find any traces of a rude and savage Egypt or a rude, barbarous Maya race. I have found both these nations mature in their very earliest period, skilful, strong and learned. I have never found a time when they lacked in ability to organize their labor nor lacking in ability to dig canals, build highways, pyramids and temples, to irrigate fields nor a time when they did not know medicine, astronomy and the principles of highly organized government. Like the Mayas the Egyptians practised monogamy, and they built their cities and temples in the same style, exhibiting a technical knowledge and skill that remains a puzzle to the engineers of this age. Neither Egyptians nor Mayans were a black race, but yellow. Both nations had slaves and an intellectual caste, but the relations between the classes were cordial and humane. Their basic principles of government were the same.

"Lepsius found the same sacred symbols in the ceremonials of the Egyptians as in the Peruvians. Le Plongeon, the great French archeologist, recovered at Chichen-Itza in Yucatan the figure of a god who was club-footed and bore in every way the attributes of the great god Thoth, of the Egyptians!

"In the Egyptian and the American pyramids the outside was covered with a thick coating of smooth and shining cement of such strength as our builders are unable to get. Humboldt considered the Pyramid of Cholula of the same type as the Temple of Jupiter at Belus.

"In both America and Egypt, the pyramids were built in the same style. I have found the pyramids on both sides of the Atlantic with their four sides pointing astronomically like the arms of the cross, in the same directions. In both the line through their centres is on the astronomical meridian. The construction in grades and steps is the same and in both cases the larger pyramids are dedicated to the sun."
