J. Douglas Kenyon is the editor and publisher of the well-known Atlantis Rising magazine, now closed down. He is also the editor of the ‘Forbidden’ series of books. One of these Forbidden History is an anthology of over forty articles previously published in Atlantis Rising. The book covers a range of fascinating subjects including Darwinism, catastrophism, ancient technologies and ancient civilisations including Atlantis. Contributors include Will Hart, David Lewis(b), Frank Joseph, Robert Schoch and Christopher Dunn. Kenyon has written a number of introductory articles to the various sections of the book. Elsewhere(a), he has written a sympathetic review of the Flem-Aths’ Antarctic theory.
Although I cannot subscribe to many of the ideas presented in his book I can certainly recommend it as a good overview of ‘alternative’ history.
The Scott Stones were discovered in 1997 submerged off the Bahamas and touted as remnants of Plato’s Atlantis. Through a series of press releases, from Aaron DuVal, claims of dramatic discoveries were made, but never substantiated. Attempts, by writers Christopher Dunn and Andrew Collins, to view the ‘stones’ were initially agreed to but eventually they came to nothing. The most rational explanation on offer so far is that these stones are in fact jettisoned ballast. It would be prudent to consider the whole story as a badly organised hoax.
