Hi, was browsing through some of the old forums and found this one, couldn't resist adding my own picks:

Best Theories on Atlantis

A Listmania!
list by D. Hill "dhill757"

   1.  Atlantis: Mother of Empires

by Robert B. Stacy-Judd

The list author says: 

  "One of the best books on Atlantis, links to the Mayans, who claimed to be descended from Atlantis (a claim always overlooked by scholars)." 

   2.  The History of Atlantis

(Atlantis Reprint Series)
by Lewis Spence

The list author says: 
  "All that can be pieced together of the history of the lost continent, circa 1926, but still very relevant, written by Lewis Spence,
'the best atlantologist of
the first half of the century." 

   3.  Atlantis of the West:
The Case For Britain's Drowned Megalithic Civilization

by Paul Dunbavin

The list author says: 
  "The evidence of Atlantis and Britain's ancient megalith civilization." 

   4.  Atlantis in Spain
(Mystic Traveller)

by Elena Maria Whitshaw

The list author says: 

  "Written in 1928, the author searches for the ancient civilization in Spain,
especially in terms of the mining of orichalcum (metal mentioned by Plato),
and other artifacts." 

   5.  Timaeus and Critias
(Penguin Classics)

 by Plato

The list author says: 

  "Plato's original dialogues on Atlantis,
skeptics should note he mentions several times that it's a true story,
that it happened 9,000 (not 900) years before his time, and that it's in the Atlantic." 

   6.  Atlantis:
The Antideluvian World

by Ignatius Donnelly

The list author says: 
  "Never out of print, Donelly's book ushered in the Atlantis craze we know today, more relevant than ever, it's reputation speaks for itself." 

   7.  The Atlantis Enigma

by Herbie Brennan
The list author says: 
  "A very under-rated book on Atlantis, Brennan carefully derails some of the myths of the ice age and proves that a supernova might have been the event that brought it to an end, and, with it, Atlantis." 

   8.  Atlantis:
The Eighth Continent

by Charles Berlitz

The list author says: 
  "Berlitz was one of the best writers on Atlantis during the 80's and this is his best book on the subject."

   9.  Atlantis in America:
Navigators of the Ancient World

by Ivar Zapp

The list author says: 
  "One of the best written books on Atlantis in recent years, details many discoveries in America overlooked or misdated by archeologists." 

   10.  Atlantis in America

by Lewis Spence

The list author says: 
  "The forerunner of sorts to the last book, but details different information." 

   11.  Atlantis and the Power System of the Gods
Mercury Vortex Generators and the Power

by David Hatcher Childress

The list author says: 
  "Childress imagine what kind of power source that the Atlanteans must have had, a great book." 

   12.  When the Sky Fell:
In Search of Atlantis

by Rand Flem-Ath

The list author says: 
  "Rand Flem-Ath's original theory that Atlantis is actually Antarctica, buried beneath miles of ice

   13.  The Atlantis Blueprint:
Unlocking the Ancient Mysteries
of a Long-Lost Civilization

by Colin Wilson

The list author says: 
  "Collin Wilson and Flem-Ath expand considerably on the earlier book, When the Sky Fell, a better book with even more detail." 

   14.  Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings:
Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age

by Charles H. Hapgood

The list author says: 
  "Hapgood's ancient sea civilization and theories behind earth-crust displacement are the basis for Flem-Ath and Wilson's work, he doesn't come right out and mention Atlantis, but he might as well." 

   15.  From Atlantis to the Sphinx

by Colin Wilson

The list author says: 
  "Collin Wilson expands on the new redating of the Sphinx to say what Hancock and Bauval do not: 
Atlanteans built it, in 10,500 b.c.
and Egyptian civilization descends
from that of Atlantis." 

   16.  Gateway to Atlantis:
The Search for the Source of a Lost Civilization

by Andrew Collins

The list author says: 
  "Andrew Collins places Atlantis in the Caribbean, the recent underwater ruins discovered off of Cuba seem to bear him out that it was, at least, a part of Atlantis (people forget it was an empire)." 

   17.  Legends of Atlantis and Lost Lemuria

by W. Scott-Elliot

The list author says: 
  "Another great early look at Atlantis (1925),
as Atlantis was the well-spring for civilization


   18.  Edgar Cayce on Atlantis

(Edgar Cayce Series)
by Edgar Evans Cayce

The list author says: 
  "Cayce's work on Atlantis is the foundation for the more incredible theories on Atlantis, true or not, it's still worth a read." 

   19.  The Lost Continent:
The Story of Atlantis
(Bison Frontiers of Imagination)

by C. J. Cutcliffe Hyne

The list author says: 
  "Considered one of the best fictional books on Atlantis,
there are a lot of trite novels out there on the subject." 

   20.  Atlantis, the Lost Continent

VHS Sal Ponti

The list author says: 
  "Sadly, this B movie is the best one ever made on Atlantis -
it's entertaining enough, but it takes all it's cues from the wildest writings of Cayce. 
One hopes for a big screen treatment someday." 

   21.  The Flood from Heaven:
Deciphering the Atlantis Legend

by Eberhard, Ph.D. Zangger

The list author says: 
  "The author is adamant that Atlantis is actually ancient Troy, and that the Trojan War was the war with Atlantis - interesting read, but wrong, and an idea that never quite caught on." 

   22.  Atlantis: The Andes Solution:
The Discovery of South America as the Legendary Continent of Atlantis

by James M. Allen

The list author says: 
  "This is the book that place Atlantis in the Andes Mountain range.  The range and the Altiplano fit Plato's description of the flat rectangular plain, but other details don't - still interesting." 

   23.  Atlantis:
Insights from a Lost Civilization

by Shirley Andrews

The list author says: 
  "An interesting new mix of new age and archeological looks at Atlantis, hard to put down." 

   24.  The Destruction of Atlantis:
Compelling Evidence of the Sudden Fall of the Legendary Civilization

by Frank Joseph

The list author says: 
  "Joseph clings to his belief that Atlantis was destroyed in 1200 b.c., and was an island, not a continent, but this is an otherwise good book, a very good read." 

   25.  Collins Essential Atlas of the World
(Atlases for Today's World)

by HarperCollins

The list author says: 

  "Looking at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge,
one can see where Atlantis was,
the peaks are pushing up,
but this development has been been occurring for millions of years,
sea level was much lower in the ice age"

Hello Friends,

I recommend you to read the following book I bought from Amazon :

Greg Alexander - "Atlantis : The origin of a legend"  ISBN 0 595 33267 6 The price is 12.95 US

As I did myself, the author based his work on the study of ancient authors and particularly the evhemerist tales of Libyan origin reported by Diodorus of Sicily in his Book IV.
It is significant that as me he concluded that Atlantis could be in Africa near the Nile. But for him the Atlas mount is Kilimandjaro in Tanzania instead of mount Semien in Ethiopia.
I would like to meet him to discuss with him on ancient authors, I think he is a very clever man and he analyzed very well the ancient texts reporting about Atlantians.
I feel you would enjoy reading his work.

Intresting THOUGHT of Greg Alexander,

that Mount SEMIEN(= SIMEON !)
and Kilimanjaro might have been the originaL "Olympus" Mount.

Engineer Stan DEYO from Berkeley Univ. has made a undersea-FLOOR Grid
to prove that at 50 meters below the main Sealevel is a flat plain adjacent the Sea-shore
where the isle of Atlantis could have been built

His location is the submerged RiverMOUTH of the AWASH(= Blue-Nile) River,
of the  DJIBUTI- or TADJURA-bay, but he did not put that further than a pocket booklett

Djibuti or BUTHO is PUNT-Land where ISIS hid the infant-Child Horus from his enemy SETH
which is strange because SETH- Land is the same as PTHA/ PuntLand.( Chittim/ Sittim/ Sidamo )_

Do you agree that with " Atlantis" at or around Ethiopia, those " PILLARS" ( of Hercule.)can't be
at Gibraltar but rather at Bab -el-Mandab & PERIM ? !

Yes I agree. See below Herakles' Pillars in ancient authors :
Alexander the Great said :   
   “Our ships will sail round from the Persian Gulf to Libya as far as the Pillars of Hercules, then all Libya to the eastward will soon be ours” (Arrian “The campaigns of Alexander”).
   Sure ! Alexander the Macedonian never went to Gibraltar !

And Pliny the Elder H.N. VI, 29 said :  “Farther than Adulis (Eritrea), at 10 days of navigation, is the harbour of Isis where Troglodytes bring the myrrh... The harbour himself contains two islands named the Doors, one of which contains columns of stone with texts in unknown characters.
Moreover Strabo (Book XVI, 4, 5) said  : “The straits at Ethiopia, here is a pillar of Sesostris the Egyptian*, on which is inscribed in hieroglyphics, an account of his passage.
   *According to me this legendary Sesostris who was also called the “Egyptian Heracles” was king Kamose (c. 1500 B.C.)

Herakles' Pillars in Bab-el-Mandeb :

Proclus said (Commentary on Timaeus) from Marcellus, who wrote a history of Ethiopian affairs :
   “There were seven islands in the Atlantic Sea, sacred to Persephone, and also three others of enormous size, one of which was sacred to Pluto, another to Ammun, and another one between them to Poseidon, the extent of which was a thousand stadia.”
   The seven islands are those of the actual Sawabi archipelago in the Straits of Bab el Mandeb ; (one of them was bound to the coast forming Ras Syan). Persephone is the Greek translation for Isis.
Similarly Strabo said (Book XVI, 4, 4) : “Six islands contiguous to one another leave a very narrow passage through them for vessels, by filling up the interval between the continents. Through these, goods are transported from one continent to the other on rafts ; it is this passage which is called the Straits.”
   As for the three big islands*, the one devoted to Pluto-Osiris is Egypt, the one devoted to Amun (or Hemen) is Yemen, the one between them devoted to Poseidon is the island of Meroe (East of Africa).
   * N.B. : Ancient geographers named “islands” all states delimited by rivers as well as by sea.

Hoping to help,
