As long as I can remember I’ve been interested in unusual stories, the ‘Earth mysteries’ if you will, the Bermuda Triangle, Crop Circles, the pyramids of Egypt, the Loc Ness Monster, etc., it actually drives my wife crazy! One that has been peaking my interest lately is the mystery of Atlantis. This due in part to the book I’m reading The Convoluted Universe, Book 2 by Dolores Cannon (visit her website) and in part to some new discoveries in South America.
Plato was the first to document this mysterious lost continent some 3,000 years ago with a detailed description of the city of Atlantis which seems to point to it’s location high in the Andes! Read the 50 comparison points to this site near Pampa Aullagas, Bolivia, based on Plato’s story.
I’m not going to present all of the evidence here, there is far too much believe it or not. You can read all about it here.
To clarify, Altantis was an ancient organized society that may have spanned some 1,000 years and geographically from as far North as Bermuda, down through what is now the Carribean Islands (which would have been giant mountains over looking Atlantis at the time) to South America.
Here’s a video of the site where the ancient city of Atlantis as described by Plato, is believed to have once stood:
Search Google Earth for ‘Pampa Aullagas’, Bolivia. You’ll see the site as clear as day! Amazing!
“So Altantis is ~real~ big deal! What good is this information going to do for us now?” some people will ask. Well, if the legend is true, Atlantians had figured out a way to harness the energy of the universe and use it in every aspect of their lives from simply lighting their homes at night, to traveling both accross the surface of the Earth and maybe even into deep space. As a contemporary society we depend far too much on fossil fuels which in the end could end up being the ‘great flood’ that kills us off. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to learn as much as we can from them and use their knowledge today?
UPDATE: (December 17, 2007) I’ve just discovered this website that goes though a checklist system to point out the possible and impossible places for Atlantis, a great read. In it they insinuate that the capital of Atlantis was the model for ALL other great cities on the continent. So, while this sight may look like the lost city of Atlantis it may be simply a copy if you will, of the design for cities in Atlantis. Nonetheless, it would still qualify as A city of Atlantis if not THE city of Atlantis.
