A.R.E. (Association for Research & Enlightenment Inc.) promotes the
cause of Edgar Cayce in particular his Atlantis prophecies. Their headquarters are in Virginia Beach, Virginia and operate on a multi-million dollar budget. A.R.E. has also been associated, somewhat controversially, with investigations on the Giza plateau, to substantiate Cayce’s claim of a Hall of Records existing near the Sphinx. Cayce also claimed that a second and third ‘Hall of Records’ was situated in the Bahamas and the Yucatan(c), while Joseph Robert Jochmans has suggested(b) the possibility of a fourth ‘Hall’.
A.R.E. purchased the library and papers of the late Egerton Sykes, the well-known British Atlantis investigator and have now made them available to other researchers in Virginia Beach.
A husband and wife team, Dr. Gregory and Laura Little, have carried out underwater investigations in the Bahamas, seeking evidence of Atlantis there. They also produce a monthly newsletter for the Association called “Ancient Mysteries” and are authors of many books and articles. A.R.E. also supports an Ancient Mysteries website(a).
