Atze’s Temple is the focal point of a proposed submarine search for Atlantis near the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in the Atlantic. The principal drivers behind this project are three Danes, Martin Laungaard, Carsten Skaarup and Jasper Nissen(a). Their inspiration appears to have come from the writings and philosophy of Danish architect Knud Brønnum (1878-1953)(b) as expressed in Wandering Towards the Light (Vandrer mod Lyset or VmL). His ‘revelations’ included an Atlantic location for Atlantis, whose crowning feature was Atze’s Temple, built over a period of 60 years, 600 years before the destruction of Atlantis!(c)
A translation of some of Knud Brønnum’s text as well as a plan of the temple is now available online(d)(e).
The current promoters of this daft idea, apparently respectable educated people, are now seeking investors, having already put $300,000 of their own money into the project! Caveat Emptor.
>The promoters’ website includes a lengthy paper on scientific evidence supporting their claim of a large landmass close to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and home to Atlantis. I note that many of these scientific sources are now somewhat dated(f). However, for me, their attempt to use a channelled source as well as old scientific papers does not improve their credibility<
