Greek Backs Plato Theory on Where to Find Atlantis
ATHENS, Aug. 28:
A Greek researcher says he has determined the exact where abouts of the legendary island continent of Atlantis and has brought together many recent conflicting theories as to its location.
His theory has some similarities to the story by Plato, who some 24 centuries ago first wrote about a "lost continent" with an advanced civilization.
Vasilios Paschos says Atlantis was a continent larger than Asia in the area now occupied by the Atlantic Ocean. He says it had a population of about 60 million and had colonies in Latin America and the Middle East. He says that after the continent sank, around 6 500 B. C., its colonies on the islands of Crete, Delos and Thira, formerly called Santorini, became what he calls the new Atlantis. This area was also largely destroyed by volcanic eruption around 1450 B.C.
Speaking at the recent news conference and later in an interview, Mr Paschos said that American, Soviet, and other scientists had placed Atlantis off the Spanish-Portuguese coast or in the Vermuda triangle or between Crete and Thira. But .....

LETTER TO: ERICH von DANIKEN

I dare to assure you, Mr Daniken, that I found the Ariadne's yarn, which will take
your readers away from the daedalian labyrinth of your reflections, which are formulated
in your books "Recollections from the future", "Return to the Stars", "Sowing in
space".

I believe that those following my course, they will see the "Giants" who spread
their light plentiful to the universe as the Sun which has been their symbol.
These giants were terrestrials and self-taught in their mind and power. People only
would be able to approach other under developed people of other areas of this earth, to
be assimilated with them, to learn their manners and customs and language.
You, Mr. Daniken, you want the bearers of the prehistoric civilizations having a
borrowed knowledge, foreigners and out -terrestrials. If we admit that the men of the
19th and 20th centuries, ie of our times, who developed such, an important civilization
and reached within one or two generations, such an astonishing scientific conquests,
are not self - taught but have a borrowed knowledge, then we can admit - and again not
without torment - that the bearers of the civilization you report were also of a borrowed
knowledge themselves.

No invasion, however, by regiments of wise scientists and special leaders came in
19th and 20th centuries, from the stars.
All the elements you piled up in your books, Mr Daniken, from the magnificent
building masterpieces, to the simple pictures that have been discovered into caves
and from the description of flying apparatus, to the plain airfield, which has been
pointed out for their landing, they are all terrestrials, comprehensible, human. Certain
strange things are not inexplicable. With a little bit of effort and good will these become
accessible because they all have a certain similarity between them. They have
something that connects them, even if they have been found, a lot of them, thousands of
kilometers far from each other.
I have compared many of your elements and examples with my own ones and they
have become my arguments to lay the foundations of my conclusions.
The rich material of your books, the largest part of which I prove true, cleared out
an undefined opinion which aired during a certain number of years inside me. It’s about
the contents of Aeolus flasks. Now, I have the opportunity to liberate the gases of the
king of the Winds, which remained trapped for several thousand years. So I believe that
a fair wind will blow to navigate the ship to the right course. The faith gives power and
hope.

I hope, I am on the right track, as Heraclitus says, to reach the unexpected by

investigating.

I do not reply as a specialist scientist but as an amateur mediator to an amateur
searcher. I shall not even attempt to convince you, dear - having seen the world - friend.
I shall try to answer your questions and to divert your perplexities and doubts. I,
therefore, reply straight away:
The Atlantes Mr Daniken; The terrestrial Atlantes are the founders of the
organized human society and the pedestals of the known and, perhaps the unknown
prehistoric civilization. Its them who carried the weight of the universe on their
shoulders.

The picture presenting the Giant Atlas holding up the terraqueous globe, is not
based on legends. It is descriptive and meaningful, it shows the ancient human

grandeur.

It is not the first time that I undertake this subject. In my book "Pioneers in Space" printed
in December 1966 and circulated at the beginning of 1967, I formulated my arguments
that the inhabitants of the lost Atlantis were so much developed that they were
succeeded to build even flying machines.
The first story of my book "the Road of Pease" (edition 1964) is dedicated to Atlantis
as well. Previously, in 1959, I had also underlined, (in order to study later) in "Solon's Life",
his talk with the Egyptian priests about the lost Atlantis.
To me, the tale took a specific form and became a true story during the collection of

the related material.

I put to myself a question Mr. Daniken; how come you have not been conducted
towards Atlantis direction, Knowing so much about it as you say in your books, to give an
answer to your questions;

As you are extremely clever, I am sure that if the present book of mine has a wide
echo, you will go through it and allied with me.
Thank you for the offer of your precious material.
Yours Sincerely
Vas. Th. Paschos
July 1976.
