I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery.

I have addressed the critical questions of time, where and who, using Plato’s own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense. Pareidolia is the technical term to describe the human tendency to mentally construct familiar images from random visual stimuli, both dynamic and static, such as clouds, fires, mountains, trees, toasted bread, vegetables etc. The links below a – e give many examples, some funny, some pathetic.

The Fortean Times magazine provides regular examples. Readers will by now be asking what this has to do with Atlantis. The book is available as a free Kindle download f and quite frankly it is overpriced at that.

Perhaps even more pertinent is the claim by Doug Yurchey that Atlantis had been situated in the Atlantic and connected to twelve colonies by a perfect grid gone of which was in Canada and marked by an Indian head!

This perceived image is a classic gimes of pareidolia. A pathetic attempt to apfil a serious theory linking this natural rock formation with the Egyptian Timed is the subject of a feature-length YouTube video by filmmaker Oana Ghiocel h.

A collection of 20 images with a claimed religious significance has aptil published on the website of The Telegraph website in the UK i. S antoriniearlier known as Therais claimed by tradition to have received its name from Theras, a 9th century BC invader. It is named after St. In ancient times it was known as Calliste Most Beautiful and Stronghyle. One source states that for a short period in the 16th century a Jew named Nazi sic owned Thera.


A potted history of the island was compiled by Professor Christos Doumas c. Many writers over the past century have supported the idea that Atlantis was a Minoan society that was destroyed when Thera erupted violently in the second millennium BC.

This is discussed more fully under Thera. The archaeological site near the village of Akrotiri on the south of the island was closed nearly seven years ago after a ceiling collapsed killing one tourist and injuring six others. Now the site is due to open again in April a ironically just as evidence is mounting of increased volcanic activity in the Santorini caldera b. Madame Helena Petrovna B lavatsky was nothing but another charlatan in a long line of fraudsters who have tried to exploit the story of Atlantis.

Blavatsky was born in Ekaterinoslav, now known as Dnepropetrovsk in the Ukraine. She had a 20144 life including a stint as a circus bareback rider to being a professional pianist.

She was born in the Ukraine and married a Russian military man, who was a provincial governor. After a brief period she left him and embarked on extensive travels in the East, during which she claims to have spent seven years studying in Tibet. Eventually, she ended up in New York and became a co-founder of the Theosophical Society.

Theosophy is an occult philosophical religious system allegedly based on ancient Hindu writings. She claimed to have had direct contact with two dead Tibetan Mahatmas. InBlavatsky published a huge, two-volume book called I sis U nveiled. She said they were a super-human people who lived long before human beings.

According to Blavatsky, the era of Atlantis lasted for eight to ten million years, and the cataclysms that caused its main continental formations to sink happened as much as four to five million years ago.

She believed Atlanteans had firtean psychic powers. However, they were corrupted by a great dragon king, Thevetat, and turned into wicked magicians who started a war that destroyed Atlantis. Infollowing accusations by the Indian press that she was promoting a deception, the London Society for Psychical Research carried out an investigation and the following year declared that Blavatsky was a fraud.


In her next book, T he S ecret D fortfanpublished after her death, Blavatsky tells much more about her Atlantis. In that book she comments on an ancient text that she claims to have been written in Atlantis.

She tells how the survivors of Atlantis settled in Egypt and built the pyramids about thousand years ago. A far cry from the conventionally accepted, though sometimes disputed, date of around BC for their construction. Coleman made a study c e of her books and concluded that they were the result of a remarkable act of plagiarism. I sis U nveiled was calculated to contain at least 2, passages copied without credit. A core of around books were used which in turn quoted with references to a further 1, works.

Theosophy spawned a number of breakaway groups and has inspired quite a number on the lunatic fringe of Atlantis writers. Anthroposophy, a concoction of Rudolf Steinerwas one of these. Blavatsky has done nothing to advance the study of the Atlantis mystery, instead with her deceit; she only muddied the waters further. Since Atlantis had disappeared through flooding, it was possible to write almost anything about it, without any real danger of being definitively refuted.

For further information you can view a website a devoted to Blavatsky. A further site b outlines in some detail the level of plagiarism that she engaged in. In Gary Lachman, the musician and occult writer, published a book fortena to rehabilitate Blavatsky and followed up with an article in the June edition of Fortean Times of the same year promoting the book.

Jason Colavito has written a review d of the FT article. Colavito has also debunked f the claim that Blavatsky had discovered the theory of relativity before Einstein, an idea put forward by her grand-nephew Boris apil Zirkoff Published April 15, Published June 10, Published June 5,
