The Discovery of Atlantis

What would the discovery of the Lost City and Continent of Atlantis do for “The Power of Culture in Sustainable Development” if it were to turn-up in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia? What could we learn from our ancient ancestors from remotest antiquity? What would the impact of such a discovery be on our youth and all of humanity? Perhaps just a little or perhaps a whole lot? Thousands of books and papers have already been written on Atlantis since its reality was first disclosed by the great philosopher Plato, some two and a half millennia ago. Hence, one may well wonder whether a new theory on the subject is really needed. Can anything new actually be said about Atlantis? The answer is a most categorical yes. After all, the riddle of Atlantis has never been satisfactorily solved so far. Our theory is an attempt by a reputed scientist (the late Prof. Arysio Nunes dos Santos, Ph.D.), to scientifically compare and refute, perhaps for the first time ever, the various existing theories on Atlantis’ location and reality.
In his book Atlantis – The Lost Continent Finally Found {The Definitive Localization of Plato’s Lost Civilization} Prof. Santos marries the most recent results and techniques of Modern Science to the sacred and folk lore of all the peoples of the world, knitting humanity together in a solution to the riddle of Atlantis that neatly ties together the vast scientific and traditional evidence which was always there but never before seen by other researchers. Whether you are a scientist with an open mind or a lay person, you will be led to conclude that Plato could well have been telling the truth, after all, since the information provided by the great philosopher is so uncannily confirmed by the recent scientific finds of all sorts.
First, it is being presented a novel theory on Atlantis that will, if accepted, cause a revolution in the fields of archaeology and the human sciences, rendering them fit for the Millennium, or for the birth of the New Age. Atlantis was never found because we have all been looking in the wrong places. Realizing that, Prof. Santos reversed engineered Atlantis back to its true location by studying ancient and modern maps, ancient texts, occultism, archeology,  nthropology, geology, etymology, linguistics, ethnology, mythology, physics, physical chemistry, engineering, alchemy and by doing the necessary research for 30 years and testing the science. He started the process by looking for a location where an entire sunken continent could be hiding itself. Geology afforded the correct, irrefutable answer: down under the South China Sea. So secondly we are also proposing that Atlantis is definitively located  in Indonesia and the surrounding area and that The Evidence is fast emerging. As our theory also proposes the dramatic cataclysmic explosion of the Krakatoa volcano, which opened the Sunda Strait separating the islands of Java and Sumatra and caused the destruction of Atlantis. That it was the mechanism in ending the Pleistocene Ice Age some 11, 600 years ago and when some 70% of the former species of great mammals which existed in this former era became extinct, including, in all probability, two species of humans, the Neandertals and the Cro-Magnons. The rest follows quite naturally and, in fact, far more serendipitously than we ourselves could ever have imagined beforehand. Third, we would like to propose that Indonesia and the surrounding area of Southeast Asia is the “Birthplace or Cradle of Civilization” and to harness the cultural and economic energy in Holistic ways so that such an incredible archaeological discovery will benefit people all around the world, especially in Southeast Asia.
