Atlantis science fact, not science
Within the recorded history of many cultures, there are references
to the great island continent of Atlantis, and its highly sophisticated
civilization. Plato, a highly respected Greek philosopher and teacher,
gives a detailed, non-fiction account of Atlantis, allegedly imparted
by his father-in-law. Many of these cultures had no known contact
or knowledge of each others civilizations, so why would such
diverse ancient peoples, such as the Maya, the Egyptians, the Hopis,
or the Greeks, have the same legends? Some scientists
once dismissed it as myth. But not any longer.
Most scientists no longer argue about the existence of Atlantis
- just the whereabouts of its ruins. Even marine scientist and
explorer, Jacques Cousteau, searched for underwater archeological
evidence of Atlantis. It ended with his son believing Atlantis
was probably in the Caribbean or Atlantic, and Jacques believing it
was in the Mediterranean. Even though they both found what they
believed to be evidence of an ancient sunken civilization, neither
had definitive proof acceptable to all scientists that theyd
discovered the remains of Atlantis. However, little absolute
archeological proof is likely to even remain from any civilization
destroyed by a cataclysmic disaster, let alone tens of thousands of
years ago, let alone one sunken beneath the sea in a totally unknown
area. Even the great Titanic was only recently found,
and only after extensive searches, even though scientists knew approximately
where it sank. Furthermore, it went down only decades ago,
and it sunk from merely hitting an iceberg, whereas
Atlantis allegedly sunk long, long ago, in an unknown location, and
was totally devastated by unimaginable natural catastrophe.
A disaster so great, that it may have had a ripple effect
around the world, which brings us to the dying off of the dinosaurs,
and stories of the great flood,.
Cultures the world over, still have stories of a great flood that
destroyed most life, (which happen to be very similar to the story
of the sinking, and flooding of Atlantis). Descriptions of the
destruction of Atlantis, say it involved great earthquakes and volcanic
upheavals, and the actual sinking of the entire land mass. So
perhaps some legends of a great flood could have come from secondary
flooding, that resulted from unimaginably gigantic tsunami waves generated
by an event that was the greatest geological disaster in history (like
the one most scientists say caused the extinction of the dinosaurs).
Such waves could have swept the globe, flooding many, if not most,
parts of the world, and eruptions could have darkened the sky, and
created other disastrous ecological consequences.
To the open mind who researches this subject, the evidence that Atlantis
did indeed exist, is overwhelming. But if Atlantis, as Plato
described it, was a highly advanced, sophisticated civilization, with
technology that even surpasses that which we have now, shouldnt
there be some other remnant of their society? Not necessarily.
But just perhaps...
According to the legends, Atlantis was so thoroughly destroyed by
natural catastrophe, that there was nothing left. Yet, couldnt
there have been some Atlanteans with enough foresight to leave beforehand,
and escape the disaster? Or some that were traveling in other
parts of the world at the time? It seems quite possible that,
given the stories of how advanced and sophisticated a civilization
it was, that at least some traders or travelers were elsewhere
in the world at the time. Some theories say the Hopi Indians,
and the mythological inhabitants of Mt. Olympus, the gods of Greek
and Roman mythology, were actually Atlanteans that survived.
Now just consider this amazing possibility - what if groups of Atlanteans,
not only survived, but established communities in various places.
What if they continued to pass on their heritage, their history, philosophy,
and religion, even to this day? Such people could teach us so
much, and fill us in on this great missing piece of human history.
That is where the Children of the Law of One come in.
