A brief introduction
So how did i get involved with the study of Atlantis as a real location? And
how do ancient pre-colombian trans-oceanic travels fit into the picture?
The story itself started when I was a young man(well even younger than now
that is!) and my father told me fantastic tales about this mysterious place. It
was the usual stuff that we all have heard, he had books on the subjects and
so on, and honestly I believed he himself just considered it a legend and not
had a further interest in it.
Well I was wrong. After his death I got hold of one of his old diaries from his
own years of traveling around the world, he himself was quite the explorer,
indeed in my own view somewhat of an Indiana Jones - he even had the whip
and hat. Really!
Nevertheless, I took the diaries and briefly read through them. Some stories
here and there about things they had encountered on their journeys in
different parts of the world. One story was about a plane they had found
sunken in the ocean, another one about a strange huge animal they could not
identify but decided to bring along - just to later having to throw it over
board because of its rotten smell.
Then I came to the interesting parts. Very interesting I must say. He and some
of his men had entered the jungles of Brazil, and due to the sensitivity of this
nature I will not reveal the exact location, but there they had stumbled upon
marvelous ruins. Deep into the forest with gigantic trees hovering above
making it all invisible from air. These ruins consisted of various temples and
pyramide-like structures, some poles and obelisk featured objects, and most
interestingly they were carved out of a black shiny type of stone.
He himself was sure this was an ancient Atlantean settlement, and obviously
quite thrilled over the find. As he did not want anyone else to get to the
4

location and plunder it or otherwise damage it or take the credits for the
find, he decided to keep it a secret. He did not have much time to do any
research there and had to leave but planned to go back there on a bigger
expedition later. Unfortunately he died before he ever got to do that. Luckily
however he left the diaries with exact locations of the site.
That is what sparked my true interest in the subject, and I started digging,
started researching and studying, and I found other accounts of similar
nature telling about similar structures in the nearby area by other explorers
and natives.
So obviously I had to study the source of the Atlantis story itself: Plato. Thats
where I found many clues that led me to believe the Americas IS Atlantis,
which you soon will see why. Other clues from other sources strengthened
this idea.
From my own research on this subject I have come to believe the location of
Atlantis was actually the Latin-Americas. There are so many things that
points in this direction. And Atlantis was not just a city by the way, it was a
whole continent, and Plato states so himself. Atlantis, the city, was the capital
of Atlantis, the continent.
I believe large parts of Latin-Americas got submerged under water due to
some cataclysmic event in the past. The evidence for this is likely seen here:

Map of Gulf of Mexico


Look at a map of Latin Americas for starter, if you look at Mexico notice the
Gulf of Mexico, and further down the Caribbean ocean. Here it seems very
likely to me that there once was dry land that now is gone, filling up the gap
that is now between Mexico and rest of South America. And the evidence for
this has been found by underwater monuments, artifacts and ruins in the
mentioned area.
And if you follow Plato's own description of where Atlantis is located, he says
its a place far away in the Atlantic ocean, opposite the strait of Gibraltar. The
Strait of Gibraltar is the strait that divides Spain from Morocco. If you travel
through it and thus to the opposite side and continue until you reach another
continent you end up in South America.
And while we are at this route, there is also evidence of contact between
south America and Africa in ancient times. Among things worth mentioning,
there has been found traces of cocaine and tobacco in egyptian mummies,
and both these are native to south America. Possibly "atlanteans" who
escaped from the disaster and ended up in Africa and thus taught the
Egyptians some of their knowledge about stone technology and construction
among other things as well as establishing some trading route with south
America. I will present more evidence on this in later chapters.

There are many similarities between Egyptian pyramids and south American
ones, specially when it comes to the masonry and stone technology. And this
technology again fits the description of Atlantis and their advanced
knowledge. Even to this day modern science doesn't know how they built
these magnificent structures or how they processed the stones etc.
Here are some Aztec earplugs made of stone, less than one mm thick sides:

And here is an Egyptian vase, made out of solid granite in one piece, and
hollowed out:

Egyptian "tube" fashioned in a way very similar to the aztec earplugs above:

To me it seems both the egyptians and the latin americans had similar
knowledge on how to work with stone. Could this be because the egyptians
had learned it from the migrating south americans (Atlanteans)?
In addition there were the unknown pre-incan people, who built Machu
Picchu among other things. The incas themselves just built upon a preexisting foundation and structures that were already there - the evidence is
clear as the incas structures were not as advanced and of as excellent quality
as that of their precedents. And these pre-incan monuments show they had a
vast knowledge and very advanced building and construction skills. None
have been able to replicate these skills in later generations - though they
have tried to imitate. Here is an example of a pre-incan wall:

And here is an example of excellent pre-incan wall with sloppy incan


extended work on top:

If you walk around in places like Machu Picchu and other south american
ruins it will become clear that there were some highly advanced civilization
that suddenly disappeared and left their buildings and structures unfinished,
and then later incas and others came and started build on top of the ruins
they found which was already ancient for them as well.
Nobody knows what happened to this pre-incan people, where they went, or
why they suddenly disappeared. But it seems quite likely its related to some
ancient disaster happening that made the people of those days flee their
homes and cities.
If we again go back to Plato and his description of the continent of Atlantis,
he said it was "bigger than Libya and Asia put together". So we are talking
about a very large continent here, and what other continent could fit this
description than South America, when we also take in consideration the
other descriptions Plato gave us about this continent? He also describes a
huge endless opposite continent, which to me fits quite well with North
America - apparently the Atlantians only ruled some in South America
(Atlantis was a Kingdom with many settlements situated around Atlantis, the
Capital itself, and continents nearby according to Plato)
Places in Latin America also fits the description of Atlantis in more ways, f.ex
a researcher named Jim Allen has discovered that Bolivia fits rather perfectly
with how Atlantis (the capital city) is described to be a rectangular island
high above the sea level - the mountains. Check Jim Allen's theories on this at
his website:
http://www.geocities.com/webatlantis/
And the local natives have ancient legends telling about a great flood that
raged the planet and swept cities away around 10,000 years ago - which
could suit well with the destruction of Atlantis. There are also other similar
ancient stories about floods and terrible earthquakes and erupting volcanoes
around in South America, check this site for more info on
this: http://www.labyrinthina.com/flood.htm - This time table also fits
10

pretty well with Platos descriptions on when Atlantis went under.

There is also the linguistic evidence, if you look at ancient latin american
language and how they named many of their places, it fits together with the
theory of Atlantis being in Latin Americas. Here are Toltec names of places
around in Mexico:
Atln, Autln, Mazatln, Cihuatln, Cacatln, Tecaltitln, Tihuatln, Atitln,
Zapotln, Minititln, Ocotln, Miahuatln, Tecaltitln, Tepatitln, Tihuatln,
Texiutln, and the like.
Notice that the Nahuatl Tln root of these place names is exactly like the Tlan
in "Atlantis."
And the pre-conquest Meso-Americans claimed that their primordial
founding city was Tolln, which is another variety of Tlan.
Hard evidence suggests that Sanskrit is the father of most world-class
languages. If we use Sanskrit to explain the true meaning of "Atlantis," we'll
learn that the initial A means "Not; No longer." The final Tis derives from the
Sanskrit Desa, Des, or Tes, meaning "Nation." Atlantis = "No-Longerthe-'Tlan'-or-'Tolln'-Nation." When A-Tlan-Tis sank under the ocean named
after it, it certainly ceased to exist.
Of course there is a lot more mysteries regarding South America that could
possibly relate to an ancient advanced civilization of Atlantis. In addition to
all the monuments, pyramids, temples and structures all the way from
Mexico and down towards Brazil in South America, we also have strange
places like the Nazca lines of Peru that I assume most people are familiar
with, and the Ica stones found in an area close to them, which depicts
advanced surgery, astronomy and use of telescopes, people together with
dinosaurs and more, that cold be the remains of such an advanced and long
passed but not forgotten civilization. I do not have the time to tell more about
this and other things right now, perhaps some time later.
11

So, with what I have mentioned above in consideration, doesn't it seem


possible that Latin Americas actually was the so called continent of Atlantis,
and some of these people who once lived there managed to escape and
migrated to Egypt, bringing with them some of their knowledge and thus also
being responsible for the greatness of the Egyptian civilizations wonders,
and that they later on started a trading route with the Americas thanks the
the survivors coming from there? At least I think so myself.
And of course there are much more evidence to prove and support this,
which I will present throughout this book leaving little to no doubt about the
location of Atlantis as well as extensive pre-colombian world travels between
continents back thousands of years ago. Forget the Viking settlement in
Canada! Though there will be some interesting mentioning of
vikings/nordics later on here in this book though, dating much further back
in time.

Architectural & constructional evidence


So where is the evidence showing any connection between ancient Latin
Americas and the rest of the world - and what does that have to do with
Atlantis even if true?
Well, let me first answer the last: If we assume that the ancient people did
have some for now unknown contact with each other, which I intent to
provide evidence for here, then we may also assume that Plato and other
people at his time had heard of these ventures. They most likely must have
both discussed and wondered about these other continents, some having
more knowledge than others, indeed some must of course even have been
the ones whom took part of such voyages.
Thus it is easy to understand, that such a event would be written about as
well as talked about. And in my opinion that is exactly what happened. Plato
described what he had heard about such voyages to other continents, and
included the details he knew of, which was enough to pinpoint the location
pretty accurately. Of course, as he was a philosopher and teacher, he did add
some of his own "touch" to the story, some of his own personal ideas and
morality - which would be quite common and still is done when someone is
telling a truth, the core of the story is true, it has just been covered with
personal thoughts, ideas and moral stories.
So from my understanding he used a real example in his moral teachings to
his students, he used a location existing for real - we know the location as
Americas, he called it Atlantis. If he made that name up, or if it indeed is a
name that was already used about the place which some linguistic evidence
support, is hard to say and need more research. The main point is that he
used an example of a real place in the world he knew about, using real events
as part of his teachings that had occurred to that place.
So assuming I am right, this means that Atlantis was part of Americas, as I
have been mentioning in previous posts. Thus this again means that some
people must have survived whatever cataclysmic event led to the destruction
of Atlantis, and brought the knowledge about it back to people such as those
of Plato's times.
13

This not only explains how Plato would know about it, but it directly explains
the similarities between architecture and religious belief among other things
between continents such as Latin-Americas, where I believe Atlantis main
Kingdom was situated, and Africa - specifically egypt and areas around.
First of I will present some architectural evidence so unique yet so alike each
other that is is hard to believe there is NOT a common origin here. Lets get
started!
KEYSTONE CUTS IN EGYPT:

CUTTING AND FITTING:

16

So there you have the first samples - I believe it is not too hard to imagine
there seem to be some similarities there, perhaps they used the same
architecture? At least to me it looks like some ideas have been shared across
the oceans here - thousands of years ago long time before the Vikings or
Columbus ever put foot on these shores.
Now back to the interesting "humps" on the stones depicted above, i have
noticed that this may seem like the stones ones were soft, a form of concrete,
and that these humps may be the hole used to fill in this concrete into
perhaps wooden plates used to form these stones, and when looking at
inscriptions on several of them and other stones in these areas it seems to
have been inscribed into a soft concrete type of matter while it was still wet,
and then later dried up and other inscriptions has been carved into the hard
stone in addition. This is often visible with inscription that seem to have been
carved like a wooden knife in butter, except we are talking about hard stone
here (or wet concrete and wooden knives which makes the butter
comparison hold true)
Here is an example of what seem to possibly have been inscribed into once
wet stone that later have dried, thus making it easy to make the curves and
circles and so on. Indeed, it even looks like the artist pushed a bit too hard at
the three lines making the upper part a bit fatter, just as it would when doing
the same in clay or sand:

17

Notice this next one, back to Peru now, another close-up of the walls. Now
isn't that peculiar masonry - up to 7-8 angles a stone, round smooth curves,
gentle slopes, all neatly fitted together. Makes me think back to Egypt and the
same type of stone work there. And the possibility that these stones were
soft when putting in place, thus easily making them fit together and cut and
shape as wanted. I mean who needs to make things simple and cut hard stone
blocks into nice squares and stack them together when you can put some
hours extra in for overtime payment to make amazing work like this?

18

To make this further interesting, there are scientists whom claim the stones
from the egyptian pyramids are indeed concrete, actually an expert on the
matter has spoken out on this.
Joseph Davidovits, PhD, specialist in chemistry, geopolymers and ancient
cements deserves to be mentioned on that and his discoveries. I quote: "In a
microscopic study a human hair was found in a piece of a block taken from
one of the pyramids."
So I think Mr Davidovits deserves a tiny bit more column space here, and
thus I will grant it:
In the early Eighties, Joseph Davidovits came up with the radical
but inspired idea that the pyramids blocks were cast using a mixture
of limestone, clay, lime and water. These ingredients reacted and
formed a concrete that he termed geopolymers.
His idea was rejected by the Egyptological community because he
did not have irrefutable scientifific evidence.
Four years ago, A. Ganguly, my graduate student, Dr. G. Hug, a
colleague in France, and I, obtained some stone samples from the
outer and inner casings of the Great Pyramid of Khufu. It took us 3
years, but we fifinally managed to prove beyond a shadow of doubt
that indeed the inner and outer casing stones were NOT natural.
This evidence is technical and is summarized at the end of this
presentation.
DREXEL UNIVERSITY
Current Understanding
Egyptologists maintain that the entirety of the
pyramids are made of carved stones.
J. Davidovits claims that they are made entirely
of cast stones.
In this presentation I will show the pyramids are
actually a hybrid, where the outer casing,
backing blocks - i.e. outer skin - inner casing
19

and architecture and the top half are probably


cast. I say probably because I do not have
backing block or upper tier samples.
DREXEL UNIVERSITY
Major results of our paper
The inner and outer casing stones of the
Great Pyramid are not natural.
The microstructure is consistent with a
reconstituted limestone where the cementing
phase is either silicon dioxide or a Ca-Mgsilicate.
The starting materials are believed to be
diatomaceous earth, dolomite and lime.
In other words, some of the blocks must have
been cast in place.
This is the information I have from his scientific papers:
Davidovits manufactured an artificial limestone containing 15% of synthetic
binder, and submitted it to geologists who, on studying it, suspected nothing
[6].
A geologist not informed of geopolymer chemistry will assert with good faith
that the stones are natural.
[6] J. Davidovits, La nouvelle histoire des pyramides, d. J-C Godefroy, Paris,
2004, pp. 57-58 et 72
Basically, the principle is as follows: starting with a mineral
substance such as eroded, disintegrated or naturally disaggregated rock
such as the limestone found everywhere in northern France we give it a
compact structure using a binder, a geological glue that will agglomerate (or
re-agglomerate) the mineral particles. The result is a rock that looks perfectly
natural: in our case, for example, an extremely solid limestone similar to
certain types occurring naturally. A geologist would notice nothing unusual.
Only a very close observation of the binder can reveal the synthetic nature of
the rock, because the particles
themselves are without question limestone or granite or whatever you like.
20

The re-agglomerated stone binder is the result of a geosynthesis (a


geopolymer), which creates two natural minerals: limestone and hydrated
feldspar (feldspathoids). We understand why the geologists can easily be
misled.
QUOTE
The analysis methods used today by geologists are not relevant. To show the
artificial nature of the material, they need to work with more powerful
methods (analysis by synchrotron, transmission and electronic scan
microscopy SEM TEM, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Particle Induced
Gamma-Ray Emission, Particle Induced X-Ray Emission, X-ray fluorescence,
X-ray Diffraction). These tools are seldom used in this situation. Studies have
been made, and all show that the pyramid stones are artificial. [7]

Mr Davidovits, whom I have been in contact with, verified himself that
similar results where found in Latin-American stones, which again to me
indicates a common connection or origin here in regards of this technology.
And before I end the humpy stones tales, I would like to present an idea
formed by a colleague of mine, which may demonstrate how these bumps
ended up on the stones if we consider they were soft and concrete like when
working with them. As you see, the device illustrated would making moving
and lifting these easier than if they were flat solid stone alone, as concrete
soft enough to squeeze together making these bumps ooze out provides
more friction than flat solid stones.

22

Seems possible to me, and if they did use concrete it also explains why they
did not bother remove the bumps after the stones were dry - too much hard
work polishing them away once harden so they just let them. Or the cultures
simply vanished before they ever got to finish that fine-polish part.

There are really much to say about the ancient stone technology, as another
example I will mention this, again an object from Egypt:

In the Cairo museum and in other museums around the world there are
examples of stone ware that were found in and around the step pyramid at
Saqqarra. Petrie also found pieces of similar stoneware at Giza. There are
several special things about these bowls, vases and plates.
They show the unmistakable tool marks of a lathe manufactured item. This
can easily be seen in the center of the open bowls or plates where the angle
23

of the cut changes rapidly - leaving a clean, narrow and perfectly circular line
made by the tip of the cutting tool.
Let's look more at artifacts and physical evidence. Let's take a look at what
we find in South America and Latin Americas.
A Mysterious Giant Head, This stone head had very fine features: thin lips, a
large sharp nose, leaving an overall Caucasian interpretation. The eyes of the
head are closed. Its size is enormous, at least 30 feet, as can be calculated
from the three men sitting on top and the car parked in front of the statue.
Photo 1940's by the owner of the Finca, near Monte Alto. Unfortunately it
was destroyed in an attempt of selling it.

24

The Monte Alto Culture is the Oldest in Mesoamrica and undoubtedly it was
the Original Culture that lead other cultures such as the Olmec and Maya. The
archeologist refer to them as Pre-Olmec, Why not Pre-Maya?, but they
deserve to be named with their own Name. Several scholars have found
ceramic and sculpture proofs that the Olmecs developed its culture in this
area and them emigrated to Veracruz.
Here is an interesting asian looking sculpture found in the area:

Notice his asian-looking facial figure and buddha style sitting position.
Rather different than the above sculpture? Certainly 2 different races
represented in this and the other photo , of two sculptures found in the same
location dating thousands of years back.
But it doesnt stop there. We got more interesting sculptures from the ancient
olmec area.
25

Here is another olmec, this one showing clear negroid african facial
features:

And here is another one, also showing very clear african facial features:

26

Although Monte Alto is noted for its corpus of boulder sculptures (heads and
potbellies or Fat Boys), more than a dozen tabular shaped stone Stelas were
found as well as three stone Altars. 15 plain Stelas were recorded at Monte
Alto and one alignment of three large plain Stelas erected in a north south
line could have served astronomical purposes as a means for recording days
and the position of the sun for agricultural purposes, in fact, The azimuth
from the principal pyramid to the south Stela marked the winter solstice on
December 21. The sun rose over the central Stela on February 19, February
19 at midnight marks the eastern elongation of Eta Draconis during the Late
Preclassic period. According to Marion Popenoe de Hatch, Eta Draconis
shows unusual stability and that from 1800 B.C. to A.D. 500 the annual date
of its meridian midnight transit varied less than one day (Popenoe de Hatch,
1975). She has shown that alignments of certain monuments at Tak'alik Abaj,
also mark the eastern elongation of Eta Draconis at various periods during
Tak'alik Abajexistence.
Many of the Monte Alto sculptures are magnetic as well. Inasmuch as certain
distinctive patterns of magnetism recur with some frequency, it would
appear that the sculptures were executed by artisans who were aware of
these properties. If this is true, the Monte Alto sculptures no doubt deserve
recognition as the oldest known magnetic artifacts in the world.
Two general styles of sculpture stem from the Monte Alto site -- one
representing a human head, and the other, a human body. Since both the
heads and the bodies are rather crudely shaped from large, rounded basaltic
boulders, the subjects have a decidedly corpulent appearance. Because they
seem to be male figures, they have been termed "fat boys" in the
archaeological literature.
Of the collection of "fat boy" sculptures from Monte Alto on display in the
town park of La Democracia, Guatemala and in front of its local museum, four
of the heads and three of the bodies were found to have magnetic properties.
All four of the heads have a north magnetic pole located in their right
temples, while three of them have south magnetic poles below the right ear
and the fourth (that in front of the museum) has a south magnetic pole in its
left temple, Such a pattern of occurrence is unlikely to be a matter of chance,
even in a sample size as small as four.

27

There is also a substantial Early Classic occupation but it is largely localized at


Structure 6, a large platform located well to the northeast. Commerce with
Kaminal Juy and Chocol, besides Tak'alik Abaj is well documented.
So in the same area, we have at least 3 different races represented, that all
seem to be from other continents and not Latin Americas. Thus, if we assume
there were an actual local race as well, we got 4 different races represented
in one and the same place, from 4 different continents! Now that's
something.
Here are some more photographical evidence of sculptures:
Below is an Olmec jade mask interestingly asians also made jade masks,
and look at the asian facial features yet this is from Latin America:

28

And the following one, even got a beard something not common in Latin
America, notice again the asian features of this wrestler:

So it seems we might have a chinese / asian connection here with those


olmecs as well as african and possibly european / caucasian.
Olmec timeframe matches with the chinese Shang dynasty timeframe. Also it
matches with the Egyptian from around end of Middle Kingdom to some
beyond New Kingdom.
Perhaps, or most likely, this was a well-visited trading area, where people
from all over the world came to trade and sell and buy.
29

Regarding the African-Olmecs:


Studies done by researchers such as Ivan Van Sertima (They Came Before
Columbus), Alexander Von Wuthenau (Unexpected Faces in Ancient
America), Runoko Rashidi and others have presented evidence that clearly
show that the Olmecs were not Indians with "baby faces," or Indians who
looked like Blacks (although a few Olmecs did mix with the Native
Americans). They were Africans no different from Africans found in the
Mende regions of West Africa .
Studies done by Clyde Winters show that the Olmecs used the Mende script, a
writing system used among the Mandinkas and other Africans in West
Africa . When the writings on Olmec monuments were translated, it was
found that the language spoken by the Olmecs was Mende.
The Olmecs practiced a religion and astronomical sciences identical to those
practiced by Africans in the Mali region and Nigeria today. The Olmecs
studied the Venus Complex in astronomy. Today, the Ono and Bambara who
are famous sea and river travelers have studied that same complex for
thousands of years. In fact, another group the Dogon is well known for their
tracking and mapping of the Sirius star system and their accurate results.
The Olmecs also had a religious practice of Thunder worship where the ax
was a prominent feature. In West Africa , the ax is also a prominent feature in
connection with the Shango or Thunder God worship. Both the Olmecs and
the Shango worshippers in West Africa placed an emphasis on the religious
significance of children in their religious practices.
The Olmecs used an African practice that is very common in Africa and to
some extent in Melanesia . That practice is body scarification and specifically
facial scarification as practiced in West Africa . Many of the facial scars seen
on the Olmec terracotta faces, such as "dot" keloids and "lined" patterns are
30

identical to Africans such as the Dinka of Sudan and the Yoruba and others of
West Africa . (Dinka scarification can be found in old copies of National
Geographic. Olmec scarification can be found in the text by "Alexander Von
Wuthenau, Unexpected Faces in Ancient America."
Thus evidence clearly shows that there is a very high probability that
Africans were in Latin America. Which further explains how the Egyptians
knew about that continent, and Atlantis, as they were the ones telling Plato
about it in the first place.
Of course there are more evidence linking different ancient cultures and
continents thousands of years back, through different artifacts and objects.
We will take a further look.
