Huffman, Harry Dale
Harry Dale Huffman is an independent American researcher with an interest in ancient mysteries. He has written a book, The End of the Mystery, in which he offers his views on a wide range of subjects including the Holy Grail, the Sphinx and Atlantis. He controversially claims that Atlantis was located on a landmass that included parts of Greenland, Iceland and the British Isles, before being moved by some form of tectonic movement, that brought it from the Indian Ocean to its present position over a vast time span(a)(b). He tenaciously clings to the idea that the speculative map of Atlantis, published by Athanasius Kircher is a true representation of the outline of Plato’s island.>He also explains that although Greenland does not match the shape of Kircher’s island, it is because part of it broke off and became Iceland.<I cannot see how Huffman’s claims can stand up to even the most cursory investigation.
>Kircher’s map clearly places Atlantis between the Strait of Gibraltar and America, not between Canada and Scandinavia. Apart from this Kircher favoured the Azores and Canaries as the remnants of Atlantis.<
Huffman’s radical thinking also extends to the ‘hot’ subject of global warming, regarding which, he disputes the extent of the effect that CO2 has on the global climate(c).
>He has also written a number of papers on ‘Ancient Mysteries’.(d)<
