An A-Z Guide To The Search For Plato's Atlantis

Latest News



    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 developing 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 »

Poe, Samuel

Samuel Poe lives in Montana and in the face of strong competition has written what I consider to be the most appalling book on Atlantis that I have read this year. A clue to its awfulness is in the title, The Algonquian Conquest of the Mediterranean Region of 11,500 Years Ago[847]. Without offering any semblance of evidence Poe claims that Atlantis was located along the eastern coastline of Canada and the United States. He then tells us that 11,500 years ago the Mediterranean was invaded by the Carthaginians, but does not explain how he equates the Algonquian with these Carthaginians. He also fails to tell us how this Carthaginian invasion took place over 10,000 years before Carthage even existed.

Poe insists that much of his inspiration came from, The History of the Ojibway People[0950], an 1885 book by William W. Warren, who himself was part Ojibway. This book is available online(b).

The book rambles on and on and on. To give just a flavour, here is one gem on page 21 – “Of course, the Algonquians settled Italy as it is clearly evident that numerous Italian people show Asian features.” Throughout the book, the author irritatingly uses ‘of’ instead of ‘have’; e.g. “may of seen or “must of filled”.

This is a 282-page book and I got to page 33 before I gave up. However, there is good news. This volume can be read online(a) so you can sample its delights without risking your money.
