    Atlantipedia will be wound down in 2023. After nearly twenty years compiling Atlantipedia on my own, and as I am now approaching my 80th birthday, I have decided to cut back on the time I dedicate to compiling this website. An orderly conclusion rather than an enforced one is always preferable, before the Grim Reaper […]Read More »

    Joining The Dots

    I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato’s own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.Read More »

Margiani, K.L.

margianiK.L. Margiani of the Georgian Technical University, Tbilisi, Georgia has an extensive website(a) promoting his new ‘science’ of cosmogeology! The first two sections are devoted to Atlantis, which Margiani claims to have been located on the Azores archipelago. He is convinced that the widely published map of Atlantis by Athanasius Kircher is an ancient map of the Azores. He specifies a location between the eastern islands of São Miguel and Santa Maria as the site of Plato’s lost city.

In a 90-page pdf file(h) that wanders all over the place, Margiani claims that Atlantis was a pre-diluvian empire and “the source of all civilization”.

I found his website somewhat disjointed and not very convincing. Margiani has been seeking a publisher for his work(b) which he modestly describes as “the most sensational book in the world”!

If you have the time, it might be worth reading a 2009 Atlantis thread(c) on the Naked Science Forum website where Margiani reveals a dramatic lack of logic leading to the total exasperation of other contributors.

Margiani’s modesty obviously knows no bounds,  because in a recent communication he describes himself as “The first Expert on Atlantis in the world”!

He now offers three pdf files(d)(e)(f) outlining his ‘cosmogeological’ theories regarding Atlantis. In December 2012, Margiani sent me further links(g) to his unique output.
