DeMelo, Robert L.

Robert L. DeMelo is a Canadian physics researcher with a particular focus on cosmology as well as an interest in prehistory. He is the author of General Principles of Reality as well as a short paper entitled 2012 and Atlantis(a). His interest in mythology also led him to publish Norse Mythology Rooted in Ancient Mesopotamia [1700] in 2015.

He promotes the idea of civilisation being much older than currently accepted. To support this view he lamely lists a number of ancient monuments and peoples which includes the Sumerians, Machu Picchu, Stone Hedge(sic) and Easter Island.

He believes that Atlantis was situated in the Atlantic beyond the Pillars of Heracles at Gibraltar. He further contends that it had widespread influence but was destroyed by a geological catastrophe. However, he seems to be convinced that the Richat Structure in Mauritania, a possible ‘salt dome’, was an Atlantean city, but finds underwater features in the vicinity of the Azores are also possible remnants of large ancient cities!(b)
