Joining The Dots

I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato's own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

Paturi, Felix R.

paturiFelix R. Paturi is the pseudonym of German author Heinz Mindt (1940- ), whose work includes Prehistoric Heritage[1339],  in which he touches on the subject of Atlantis[p215], in particular the theories of Jürgen Spanuth. Although he does not expressly endorse the idea of the reality of Atlantis he is very critical of the manner in which Spanuth was treated by some members of the scientific community, which resulted in ten professors being forced, in a law court, to admit that their arguments against Spanuth were untenable. Paturi also includes references to some scientists who did support Spanuth. He concludes with the following comment – “But independent of whether the mysterious sea peoples were or were not the inhabitants of Plato’s Atlantis, there is one thing which in the long run can scarcely be denied: that they came from the far north.”
