Welcome To Atlantipedia
After many years recording everyone else’s Atlantis theories, I finally completed writing my own, which is now available as a Kindle ebook. Its full title is Joining the Dots: Plato’s Atlantis in the Central Mediterranean, which is fairly self-explanatory. I’m advocating Plato’s Atlantis to have been a military alliance centred on a zone that stretched from southern Italy across the Mediterranean to include at least part of north-west Africa as well as many of the islands in that region. I have endeavoured to answer some of the many questions posed by the Atlantis narrative, such as when, where, who and how. In particular, I have investigated the incredibly large numbers recorded by Plato, which have only provided ammunition for Atlantis critics.
ATLANTIPEDIA is aimed at providing the most comprehensive source of information regarding the development of Atlantis theories, particularly since Ignatius Donnelly produced his seminal work on the subject towards the end of the nineteenth century.
The content is intended to assist researchers, journalists and anyone with an enquiring mind. Unlike many other sites on the Internet, ATLANTIPEDIA will not be providing open forums, which I have seen so often devolve into time-wasting squabbles between ego-trippers. However, we are open to all ideas and data that might improve the quality of the information on offer and invite emails from readers.
My intention is that Atlantipedia be primarily concerned with the scientific search for Plato’s Atlantis. Speculative theories or alleged psychic revelations without any supporting evidence are as worthless here as they would be in a court of law. Atlantipedia encompasses a wide range of theories and their proponents to include, if I may badly paraphrase, the good, the mad and the unbelievable.
