Overview

The Atlantis Blueprint: Unlocking the Ancient Mysteries of a Long-Lost Civilization by Colin Wilson, Rand Flem-Ath

A spellbinding blend of history and science, scholarship and speculation, this landmark work presents startling new evidence that traces archaeology's most enduring mysteries back to the lost civilization of Atlantis....

The Great Pyramid. Stonehenge. Machu Picchu. For centuries, these and other sacred sites have inspired wonder among those who ponder their origins.

Conventional science tells us they were constructed by local peoples working with the primitive tools of a fledgling civilization. But these megaliths nonetheless continue to attract pilgrims, scholars, and adventurers drawn by the possibility that their true spiritual and technological secrets remain hidden.

Who could have built these elaborate monuments? How did they do it? And what were their incomprehensible efforts and sacrifices designed to accomplish?

Now comes a revolutionary theory that connects these mysteries to reveal a hidden global pattern -- the ancient work of an advanced civilization whose warnings of planetary cataclysm now reverberate across one hundred millennia.

International bestselling author Colin Wilson and Canadian researcher Rand Flem-Ath join forces to share startling evidence of a fiercely intelligent society dating back as much as 100,000 years -- one that sailed the oceans of the world, building monuments to preserve and communicate its remarkable wisdom.

The Atlantis Blueprint is their term for a sophisticated network of connections between these sacred sites that they trace to Atlantis: a sophisticated maritime society that charted the globe from its home base in Antarctica ... until it was obliterated by the devastating global changes it anticipated but could not escape.

Here is adventure to realms beyond our imaginings ... to shifting poles, changing latitudes ... into the world of ancient mariners who recharted the globe ... to astonishing discoveries about our ancestors. Here are the great mysteries ... the incredibly complex geography of the Temple of Luxor ... the startling sophistication of Egyptian science and math ... and tantalizing similarities among the Hebrew, Greek, and Mayan alphabets to the Chinese lunar zodiac.

The Atlantis Blueprint opens up a Pandora's box of ancient mysteries, lost worlds, and millennial riddles. It is a story as controversial, fascinating, dangerous -- and inspiring -- as any ever told.

This book is a theory, and it's not fiction, but nor is it non-fiction and fact. Flem-Ath and Wilson present a very good case towards their theory of Atlantis. And they only use the 'idea' of Atlantis to give it a name because they don't present the idea of just one city. Yes, they're are jumps in logic and some seemingly made up ideas, but they're also some good points, some excellent points. Even if they are wrong at times, their book and research shows that what we think we know may not be true and we shouldn't just accept what's thrown at us. A very fine piece of work and a must read for it can open your eyes to not believing the old history books on every fact.

After ages and ages of pouring through useless conspiracy books, The Atlantis Blueprint, really shines as having actual fact behind it. This book really offers realistic data as to why Atlantis could have existed. Phenomenal!

Ive read most of these types of books which include Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval, Knight & Lomas and these guys are right up there with the best. Tons of info, great interpretations and solid theories. If you like the authors i mentioned before this is a great addition

Found this book to be a very interesting take on Atlantis. It didn't follow the normal theory of it being just a lost treasure, but rather a lost people and way of life. Very much enjoyed it.

This book is pure fiction! It is filled with jumps in logic and uses rhetoric in a poor attempt to prove Atlantis once existed.
