ancient history, history
The legend of Atlantis has captured the imaginations of millions of people worldwide - thousands of books have been written on it, and with good reason. This week historian Michael Le Flem joins me to discuss his deep and eclectic research into the subject. Drawing on everything from ancient records and myths from around the world, to psychic sources of information, Le Flem presents a view of Atlantis much more compelling than the usual superficial caricatures promoted by "skeptics" and debunkers. His work supports Graham Hancock's thesis that humanity is a species with SEVERE amnesia - we have forgotten who we are and where we come from. If Le Flem's work and sources are even vaguely accurate, the timeline of Atlantis extends back some 200,000 years, meeting its untimely end roughly around 10,500 BC. We discuss everything from Plato, the 50,000 BC megafauna dieoff, the first incarnations of homo sapiens and "mitochondrial Eve," the deceptive and pallid arguments of the debunking community, the likely location of the lost continent of Atlantis, the incredible work of Edgar Cayce and what he said about Atlantis, the Egypt and Giza connection, Frederick Oliver's strange work "A Dweller on Two Planets," advanced Atlantean technology comparable to today's smart phones, key Atlantean figures, Poseid, the multiple stages of Atlantis' destruction over time, and much, much more.
Don't miss this.

Episode 54: Ancient Memories of Inundation - Tribal Myths of Prehistoric Catastrophe Proved True with Dr Patrick Nunn

ancient history, geography, geology, history, indigenous culture
In this episode respected geologist and geographer Patrick Nunn shares insights into his ground-breaking research into ancient indigenous cultures and their oral traditions. Nunn’s work shows that these pre-literate societies’ verbally transmitted myths and legends actually encode truthful information about ancient catastrophic sea level rise and the resultant land loss and trauma. Astonishing cross-correlations between geographical and geological evidence and such stories dating back as much as 13,000 years have been established, validating ancient stories that were once dismissed as fable and imaginative fabrication. Nunn’s work supports the idea that while mainstream culture makes humanity look like a species with amnesia, many indigenous cultures have succeeded in remembering at least some of their roots—roots reaching back thousands of years.
