The secret history of
Atlantis, the ancient civilization of the Europe
So many people are talking and writing about Atlantis.
It seems Atlantis could have been everywhere.
I have read books where Atlantis is placed in Greece,
in Peru, in Antarctica, on the Azores, in the Bahamas.
Let us keep to the books of Plato and place Atlantis
where it belongs: somewhere between Europe and the Americas,
just outside the entrance to the Mediterranean.
At that place outside Gibraltar is a huge island
just below the surface of the ocean.
A whole continent is to much for the weak Atlantic Ocean bottom,
so it must have been a huge island or a group of islands,
may be some pieces of this archipelago are still in existence
along the borders of the ocean or as little islands.
This is about the only feature everybody agrees upon,
the concentric rings of the capital.
With the temple of Poseidon in the midst.
Poseidon is a sea god.
So the people of Atlantis were much involved with the ocean.
The Atlantis civilization and its destruction
cannot have happened to long ago.
Atlantis belongs to the very ancient civilizations
before the start of the present cultures,
but the survivors of the Atlantis disaster
most certainly have started civilizations elsewhere.
The remnants of Atlantis are seen in the buildings found
along the ocean shores with the giant building blocks.
To mention some:
the circular towers along the coast of Ireland;
part of the pyramids of Gizeh are made of enormous blocks;
the temple at Baalbek in Lebanon;
the Osirion next to the pyramids;
the ocean harbour Mitchu Pichu,
at present high up in the Andes mountains.
Also the megalithic remnants at Bimini, Cuba and Peru.
The line of knowledge through the civilizations
could have gone through the megalithic nations (10000BC-1600BC).
It is known that many ancient megalithic buildings are
seen in relation with the Atlantic culture.
Another very important line is through the Mother Goddess
religion of South Western Europe (9000-3600BC)
with a continuous line into the Thracian civilization (6200-700BC)
into the Ancient Egyptian civilization (4000BC-450AD).
The Mother Goddess civilization had a written tradition
that still has to be explored.
The writings have been written in early hieroglyphic symbols.
The oldest recognized writing in the known world is
the Egyptian hieroglyphic writing,
that was in full developed usage around 4000BC, maybe 3500BC.
Hieroglyphics are much older then 4000 BC,
in which we follow mr. Wallis Budge.
A new research links ancient hieroglyphs to the Thracian civilization.
Pictorial writings of 5000BC and 4000BC are translated
by using the hieroglyphic pictorials of the 4th dynasty.
The connection from megalithic people
through the Mother Goddess civilization
towards the Thracian people is very likely.
The Thracians were a powerful and highly developed
nation, well known in ancient times.
Homeros, Herodotos and Josephus wrote about the Thracians.
The graves of the Thracian kings can be visited
in Bulgaria, where the grave hills of the kings
are everywhere in the landscape.
The Thracians were once as populated as the Chinese nation.
The Thracian civilization is significant from 6200BC until 350BC.
The Thracians brought the hieroglyphs
to early ancient Egypt. The first dynasties of pharaohs
were very probably Thracian kings.
Did the Atlantis nation die of a natural disaster
or a self made disaster? The most probable disasters
are volcanoes and waterfloods (tsunami). A self made explosion
can also have shaken the thin ocean bottom,
where Atlantis was standing upon as an island-mountain.
There is a theory, that the sinking of the big island of Lemuria
in the Pacific Ocean has influenced the stability of the oceans,
so the island of Atlantis was destabilized .
That would fit in with the existance of the not so deep area
just outside Spain. It is known that normal ships
do hit the ocean floor in the area just
outside the Strait of Gibraltar.
I am not sure the Atlantis people were so happy
and highly developed as many people think.
It was a society of casts and they must have had a taboo
or kapu system, like many ancient tribal systems,
like the Hawaiians and the Indian people and
parts of China and many others. A cast system can only
exist together with a lot of rules and punishments
and discrimination. The treatment of women around the world
also reminds very much of a caste system.
The Atlantis nation had a lot of knowledge
that spread across the globe, when the Atlantis people had
to live like refugees across the world after the disaster.
My opinion is, that a lot about Atlantis can be found
in the ancient Egyptian civilization.
To be continued.

The concentric rings are also part of the Atlantis ring.
