Is the Atlantis story a myth, pseudo-science, or a true story with lessons for our future? Objective and scrupulous, J. Allan Danelek applies his signature no-nonsense approach to the legend of the Lost Continent.
Investigating Plato's dialogues, geosciences, traditional theories, and historical maps, Danelek attempts to answer the questions surrounding this twelve-thousand-year-old legend. Did Atlantis truly exist? If so, what was its culture like? How did the Atlanteans destroy themselves? Why haven't we found any evidence of this civilization? And finally, what can we learn from the fate of Atlantis—an advanced civilization perhaps not unlike our own?
This engaging exploration of Atlantis brings levity to a controversial subject and offers reasonable and fascinating theories of what may have happened to this ancient civilization.
