The Rise & Fall of Atlantis: And the Mysterious Origins of Human Civilization

Overview

Could the lost civilization of Atlantis provide the answer to the origins of human existence? In his controversial new study, John Gordon examines the evidence and makes some startling discoveries.

Overview

Could the lost civilization of Atlantis provide the answer to the origins of human existence? In his controversial new study, John Gordon examines the evidence and makes some startling discoveries. Though many have dismissed Plato’s account of the vanished continent and its people as fantasy, Gordon argues that not only is the story true, but it’s a brilliant and complex metaphor for cosmic creation. Gordon’s research leads him to oppose modern scientific orthodoxy on a range of accepted ideas from the “Big Bang” theory to Darwinian evolution. He questions the concept that humans emerged relatively recently; the notion that dinosaurs became extinct due to an asteroid impact; and the belief that present-day global warming has a human cause. It’s an eye-opening look at our world.
