Brady, J. D.
Joseph Daniel Brady is an American researcher with a particular interest in scripture related non-fiction mysteries. He has now turned his attention to the question of Atlantis. In a somewhat complicated theory he makes a distinction between the Phoenician Tyre and the Tyre (Tyrus) whose destruction is described by Ezekiel (26 &27). He compares the demise of Ezekiel’s Tyre with Plato’s destruction of Atlantis. Brady proceeds to identify the Plain of Troy, formerly a bay, as the final resting place of Atlantis.
In 2010 Brady published his ideas in a book with the ingenious title of Atlantis, which was available as a paperback and an ebook. He also claims to have located the Garden of Eden as well as having found evidence within the Bible of life on other planets!
Helena Blavatsky was possibly the first to link the biblical Tyrus with Atlantis in The Secret Doctrine. Brady’s idea that Ezekiel’s Tyrus was not the Phoenician city of Tyre has been taken up by David Hershiser in a 2015 article in Atlantis Rising magazine(d), reprising his book Beyond the Pillars of Hercules. *However, while Brady locates his Tyrus/Atlantis at Troy, Hershiser has placed his Tyrus/Atlantis in the Atlantis just beyond the Strait of Gibraltar.*
In 2014 Brady published a revised edition of his book with a new title, Atlantis: The Renamed Island, in which he claims that Atlantean gold treasure was hidden in a labyrinth on the Greek island of Lemnos. He further claims that Plato located Atlantis between Lemnos and Troy, in front of the Dardanelle Straits!(b) Jason Colavito has reviewed Brady’s claim of treasure(c).
