Map of Holy Time

The Elusive Sunken Atlantis Revealed

For anyone, who inspects a chart of the oceanic bottoms in the region of Indonesia, Malaysia, New Guinea and Australia such as the Ice Age Map of Indonesia, they will readily concede that the South China Sea encircled by Indonesia indeed formed a continent during the last glaciation; that ended some 10,400 tuns ago; (1 tun = 360 days.) This chart clearly shows the partially sunken continent of Lemuria (New Guinea to Australia,) as well as the extensively sunken strip of Atlantis (Indonesia.)

 

The map leaves no room for doubt about the reality of what we are affirming concerning Lemuria and Atlantis, one almost wholly sunken and the other sunken to a very considerable extension. We remark that this map – in contrast to most others presenting proposed sites for Atlantis and/or Lemuria – is purely scientific, rather than an invention of ours or of others. It is based on the detailed geophysical reconstruction of the sea bottoms in the region in question and portrays the areas of depth under 100 meters, which were obviously exposed during the Ice Age when sea levels dropped by that amount and even more.

 

One of these maps was published in the National Geographic Magazine (vol.174, no.4, Oct.1988, pg.446-7.) It shows the world, as it was some 18,000 solar years ago, at the peak of the last glaciation of the Pleistocene Ice Age. In particular, please note the huge chunk of land of continental dimensions to the south of Southeast Asia, which became sunken when sea levels rose at the end of the Pleistocene. This sizable piece of land is Malaysia, the site that disappeared likewise at that occasion. No other regions of the world display a similar event, including the Americas. The conclusion is that Atlantis, if Plato was in fact speaking truthfully, could only have been located in that region of the world.

 

A huge extension of continental size prolonged Southeast Asia all the way down to Australia. This continental-sized landmass was indeed larger than Asia Minor and Libya North Africa put together, exactly as Plato affirms. It was seen to have been about two or three times larger than continental-sized India.

 

The Indonesian Islands and the Malaysian Peninsula that we nowadays observe are the unsunken relicts of Atlantis, the lofty volcanic mountains that became the volcanic islands of this region, the true site of Paradise, in all ancient traditions. The sunken portion of continental extension now forms the muddy, shallow bottoms of the South China Sea.

 

Then as now, Indonesia formed the divide of the New and the Ancient Worlds; what the ancients called Ultima Thule (Ultimate Divide.) Thule also corresponded to what our elders named the Pillars of Hercules, which according to Plato, were placed just in front of Atlantis (hyper ten Heraklei Nyssai.)

 

The Pillars of Hercules was also the impassable frontier between the Old and the New Worlds, also called Orient and Occident. These two are sundered by the volcanic island arc of Indonesia, truly the boundary of the Tectonic Plates that form the Ancient and New Worlds. This barrier to navigation in the region of Atlantis is also insistently mentioned in Plato and other ancient sources on Atlantis.

 

The History of Atlantis

The cataclysms of fire and water of worldwide extent of which we speak of in this text are strictly scientific. They are widely attested to in the geological records, being generally accepted by modern Geology. So are the massive extinctions of all sorts of species, and particularly of the large mammals, which took place at the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age. This was also the end of the World Age of 4 Rain and the beginning of the World Age of 4 Water. 10,250 years ago some 70% of the former species of the great mammals, which existed in the former era, became extinct in this epoch.

 

The mechanism that initiated the end of the last Ice Age was a Cosmic Fireball that collided with Mother Earth some 13,000 years ago. This is a key element for mass extinctions; the extinction of the dinosaurs 64 million years ago was also caused by a Cosmic Fireball. This cosmic collision with our planet 13,000 years ago activated volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis that ravaged the entire planet. This earth shattering event activated great explosions of the many volcanoes of Indonesia. A huge explosion of the Krakatoa volcano opened the Strait of Sunda, separating the Islands of Java and Sumatra.

 

This giant explosion is widely attested to in all sorts of myths and traditions such as universally remembered as the explosion of the Mountain of Paradise = (Mt. Krakatoa, Mt. Atlas, Mt. Meru, Furnace of the Gods) and of the deluge it caused, of which they all speak obsessively as the Universal Flood and the Universal Conflagration.

 

The explosion of Mt. Krakatoa caused a mega tsunami, which ravaged the lowlands of Atlantis and Lemuria. It also triggered the end of the Ice Age by covering the continental glaciers with a layer of soot (fly ash) which precipitated there melting by increasing the absorption of sunshine. The melt waters of the glaciers rushed into the oceans raising sea levels by about 100-150 meters, which caused tremendous strains and stresses in the crust of the earth. This cracked open in the weak areas, engendering further volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and mega tsunamis that feedback positively the process, furthering it to completion. The result was the dramatic end of the Pleistocene Ice Age and the Quaternary Extinction’s.

 

All nations of all times, believed in the existence of a Primordial Paradise where Man originated and developed the first civilization ever. This story real and true is told in the Bible and in the Hindu Holy Books such as the Rig-Veda, the Puranas and many others. That this Paradise lay towards the Orient, no one doubts this except some die-hard scientists who hold that different civilizations developed independently from each other in such unlikely places such as Europe, the Americas or the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

It was in the Orient and beyond that agriculture of (rice and grains) and animal domestication was invented. These two inventions allowed man’s fixation to the soil, and the resulting prosperity led to civilization and the founding of the first city called Henok or Chenok, (the Abode of the Pure) in Dravida – to Cain; Genesis 4:17:

 

This name (Pure Land) of the very first one of all cities is the same in Hindu traditions (Shveta-dvipa, Sukhavati, and Atala.) In the Amerindian traditions (Yvymaraney) the Land of the Pure, is the legendary birthplace of the Tupi-Guarani Indians of Brazil, and the Ancient Maya of Mesoamerica. Man or more exactly, the anthropoid simians that were are ancestors in fact rose in Africa some 2 million years ago. But these anthropoids soon spread all over Eurasia and beyond, reaching the far Orient and Australia inclusive by about 1 million years ago.
