Summary

Many have believed that Atlantis was a fiction created by Plato. Well Plato was not the first to write about it.

We have found a very much earlier document. It was written in 9619 BC, about 9,250 years before Plato’s writing.

This ancient document is believed to be the oldest document that has survived almost intact down through the ages.

Further, archeological finds and scientific evidence provide convincing proof that Atlantis really did exist; Atlantis was real.

We structure the evidence that we found as answers to 3 basic questions. First, if Atlantis did exist how was it created?

If Atlantis existed, did it influence anything; leave any evidence of its existence; leave a legacy?

If Atlantis did exist where are its remains?

Read and you will become convinced.

In writing this book, I stood on the shoulders of giants. Most of the concepts and material herein is based on ancient documents written by great, unknown authors in the era we have previously called pre-history.

Pre-history because most of today’s professional historians in academia have not yet recognized the great antiquity of some of the stories in the clay tablets of ancient Babylon and Sumer, nor the even greater age of some parts of the Hebrew Bible. Nor has academia recognized the great antiquity of some pre-history civilizations.

But the evidence is conclusive that great civilizations did exist more than 11,000 years ago. It is hoped that academia will soon acknowledge this certain fact.

I am deeply grateful to the unknown writers of yesteryear for providing me the insight to this certain fact.

I am also deeply indebted to the great classical writers of a much later age. The principal ones are Homer writing in about 800 BC, Herodotus in about 450 BC, Plato about 380 BC, Strabo about 30 BC, and Ovid in 1 AD. They had access to ancient documents and oral traditions that are not available today. Yet we can see elements from their source stories when we carefully study their writings and compare such elements that are common among them.

Extracting these common elements and comparing them to similar elements from the stories in the clay tablets and the other sources from greater antiquity, established the foundation for this book.

The story that developed from this foundation was very adverse to the established understandings of human history and religion. It therefore had to be verified by scientific evidence to have any credibility.

I am grateful to a more modern group of writers for providing insight to existing scientific data. These writers include I. Donnelly writing in 1882 and 1885, R. B. Anderson in 1888, I. Velikovsky in 1956 and 1977, C. H. Hapgood in 1958 through 1979, G. Hawkins in 1977, C. Sagan in 1977, J. A. West in 1979 and 1989, Z. Sitchin in 1983 and 1990, G. Hancock in 1993, R. Bauval in 1994, C. Wilson in 1995, Rand and Rose Flem-Ath in 1995, D. S. Allan and J. B. Delair in 1997.

I cannot agree with all the conclusions of these modern writers in that the evidence for some of their ideas is not as conclusive for me. Some of the evidence does, however, support some of my ideas, and I am grateful to them for the insights their work provided.

The unknown writers of old; the classical writers of ancient Greece and Rome; and the modern writers listed above, all shaped my understandings of, arguably, the greatest event in the history of mankind.

The generally unknown truths revealed by these ancient stories and contemporary scientific evidence is fundamental to our understanding of true history, important to some of our religious concepts, and vital to foretelling our future – and the destiny of mankind.

I thank them all.

Preface

Almost all of the ancient societies have stories of a great country from which their ancestors migrated. They frequently describe it as a shinning paradise. Plato said that it was Atlantis.

Many people today want to believe that Atlantis really did exist. Many believe that Atlantis was just a story created by Plato; just a myth.

Troy was a myth too until Archeologist Schliemann found it.

In our search for Atlantis we have found and gathered an enormous amount of conclusive evidence and documented it in this 3 part book.

Please remember that many myths have origins in truths – great, Unknown Truths.

Read, learn – and enjoy.

Chapter 1

Introduction

Some say that Atlantis is a myth. Troy was a myth too until Archeologist Schliemann found it. Come along with me and let’s find Atlantis.

Walter Parks

Ancient literature and mythology is filled with stories of an early civilization that was destroyed by a great worldwide flood. Plato said it was Atlantis.

Plato has long been accepted as the first to write about Atlantis and this was documented in his classic dialogs: Timaeus and Critias written about 360 to 370 BC. The dialogues are recorded as conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timeaus, and Critias.

Plato’s story describes Atlantis and a conflict between the ancient Athenians (Greeks) and the Atlantians that occurred 9,000 years before Plato's time. The story was initially told to an ancestor of Critias by Solon who was told the story by an ancient Egyptian priest.

Many have believed that Atlantis is a fiction created by Plato.

Hey, after all Plato wrote about Atlantis 9,000 years after it was destroyed!

Well Plato was not the first to write about it.

We have found a very much earlier document. It was written in 9619 BC, about 9,250 years before Plato’s writing.

This ancient document is believed to be the oldest document that has survived almost intact down through the ages.

Further, archeological finds and scientific evidence provide convincing proof that Atlantis really did exist. Atlantis is perhaps just the latest old myth becoming a reality.

Scientific findings have in the past proved that many of the ancient myths were based in reality.

We believe that we have assembled enough evidence to prove that Atlantis was real. Let’s review what we have found.

We structure the evidence that we found as answers to 3 basic questions. First, if Atlantis did exist how was it created?

If Atlantis existed, did it influence anything; leave any evidence of its existence; leave a legacy?

If Atlantis did exist where are its remains?

To answer these questions we describe Atlantis in the 3 parts:

Part I The Creation of Atlantis

Part II The Atlantians and Their Legacy

Part III The Destruction of Atlantis

Part I covers the period from 225 to 2.45 million years ago in which Atlantis was created.

Part II covers the period from 45,000 BC to 9,619 BC in which the Atlantians migrated to Atlantis and set up their society and flourished.

Part III covers the year of destruction, 9619 BC.

Part III starts with Chapter 14 The Destruction of Atlantis.

Chapter 14

The Destruction of Atlantis

The God Enki warned Ziusudra, King of Shuruppak that the gods were going to destroy mankind with a great flood.

Sumerian Clay Tablet

The God Ea warned Ziusudra, King of Uthnapishtem that the gods were going to destroy mankind with a great flood.

Akkadian Clay Tablet

God tells Noah to Make thee an ark… so he and his family can survive a great flood that God plans to send to destroy mankind.

The Book of Genesis in the Bible

Yes, Atlantis was the foundation of all we are and all we know. But the great Atlantis was destroyed in 9619 BC.

Its destruction was part of a worldwide event observed by all of the ancient societies of the time. Each society recorded the event in the folklore of their day and their stories and tales were documented by later historians. The stories, for the most part, have been considered myths by most later historians.

But the sinking of Atlantis was not a myth; it really did happen.

We have assembled a great deal of evidence as to how Atlantis was destroyed. Our initial attempt in presenting the evidence resulted in a rather dry commentary. The first draft was considered by the reviewers to be too technical with too many annotations.

I did some rewriting. Here I review the event of the destruction of Atlantis as remembered by the various societies of the time. Each of the ancient societies that witnessed the worldwide event made their own interpretations. You will see that each society witnessed the event in terms of their own abilities to understand and in terms of their own religious and cultural environment. I start the reviews with Atlantis itself.

After reviewing the ancient stories and myths I present the scientific evidence of what actually happened.

Please indulge my presenting part of the evidence in the form of a created story with assumptive dialog. Other than the created dialog, all the evidence presented is factual. I have tried to use real historical characters who speak the dialog. You will learn more about the historical characters as the
