Gerardin, Lucien (m)
Lucien Gérardin (1923- ) is a French electronics engineer with a fascination for ancient cultures, in particular the megalith builders. He has published a book that firmly relates the disappearance of Atlantis to the consequence of the melting of the glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age and that the universality of Flood myths can be attributed to the fact that raising of sea levels affected the entire globe. He considers the North Sea and the Atlantic coast of Europe as being the most likely location of Plato’s Atlantis.
*[Gérardin is also the author of Le mystère des nombres : arithmétique et géométrie sacrées (The mystery of numbers: sacred arithmetic and geometry) in which he indulges his fascination with numerical harmonies.]*
