Cassinelli, Dennis

Dennis Cassinelli is a historian and writer from Nevada, who has written: on topics that range from American Indian stone tools to the Great Basin to the history of the Comstock Lode”. In his 2009 book, Uncovering Archaeology[1612], he outlines in some detail his Atlantis theory, which he locates in Central America (a).

I found that the Mormons believe that Jesus Christ did in fact survive the Crucifixion and was able to make his way, most likely on a Phoenician ship, to Central America where he resumed teaching his Gospel to the Mayan natives.”<

He suggests that Phoenicians landed in Central America and on seeing the Mayan cities concluded that they had landed in Atlantis. Jason Colavito had a few comments to offer regarding this idea(b).
