Hitching, J. Francis
John Francis Hitching (1933- ) is a British writer with an interest in archaeology, non-Darwinian evolution as well as the paranormal. His best-known work on evolution is his controversial The Neck of the Giraffe.
He was editor of The World Atlas of Mysteries in which he gives an overview of Atlantis theories, while in his better-known work Earth Magic[0578.166] he reveals his preference for Crete as the source of the Atlantis story –>“Plato’s description of Atlantis, on which all Atlantean theories are based, can be readily assigned to the Mediterranean island of Crete, wrecked by an earthquake that happened on the near-by island of Thera.”<
Hitching’s scientific credentials and credibility have been seriously questioned(a)!
