Read full description of the books:
Do you know what the Ice Age, Stonehenge, the temple of Machu Picchu, the Sphinx, and Plato have in common? Neither did I. All of them offer up clues to the existence of the lost city of Atlantis, and all are carefully dissected and analyzed by the Flem-Aths in this new book on that very topic.
To begin with, I wasn't even aware that the jury was still out on Atlantis; I thought the votes had been tabulated and a resounding "Uh-uh" was recorded. But apparently, scholarly debate continues to this very day. One of the scholars at the forefront of the debate was Charles Hapgood, whose work was supported by Albert Einstein in his day, and was continued by the Flem-Aths. Hapgood was a professor of anthropology who dabbled in geology and ancient cartography--and that's some dabbling! He theorized that around 12,000 years ago the earth underwent a sudden and violent upheaval which caused earthquakes, eruptions of volcanoes, and massive, world-wide flooding. The cause and/or result of this upheaval was a significant planetary crust displacement which shifted the entire outer layer of the earth's crust, causing certain land masses which were in polar locales to move to more temperate areas, such as Canada, and certain ones which were in temperate areas to move to a polar locale, such as Antarctica.
This theory explains many things which modern science can not--the ice age; the sudden, violent change of climate in certain parts of the world; the preservation of animals such as mastodons, which suggests they were caught in a rush of water and exposed to a rapid drop in temperature, because of the lack of decomposition; and such anomalies as why the Sphinx appears to have suffered water erosion. But it is also a theory which has been largely ignored by modern science.
The fact that this is a book that is entirely unscientific is not at issue. This is a case where the authors have set out for evidence to support a certain conclusion, rather than letting facts and observations lead them to a conclusion. The Flem-Aths are not scientists, you see; they are a husband and wife team of librarians. Their specialty is in the collection, cataloguing, and arrangement of documents and facts. What they have done is what librarians have always been famous for: they have united under one "roof" works of palaeoanthropology, geology, cartography, mythology, physics, history (oral and written), geography, and "Atlantology". But in the case of this book, they have gone one step further and made connections between all these works that the individual scientists couldn't and wouldn't make.
And let me assure you that their research was tireless and beyond thorough. The result is this fascinating book which brings the "legend" of the lost city of Atlantis into the realm of possibility. Their conclusion, based on all the sources they have presented, is that the ruins of Atlantis lie under several thousand tons of ice in Antarctica, and that the survivors which fled the island in all directions were pivotal figures in the development of all modern civilizations. And how is that related to Stonehenge? You'll have to read the book, of course.
