Baikie, Rev. James

Rev. James Baikie (1866-1931) was a prolific writer[142147] in the early part of the 20th century on subjects such as, astronomy, the Bible and ancient history.

A hundred years ago, in 1910, Baikie had suggested Minoan Crete as Atlantis in one of his earliest books, The Sea-Kings of Crete[142], which is now freely available to read or download online(a). Even then, while Arthur Evans was still reporting his amazing finds on Crete, Baikie was drawing parallels between Atlantis and Knossos. The science journal Nature(c) in December 1910[Vol.85.235] dismissed the book as having “no scientific value”.

The only drawback that Baikie considered his theory to have, was Plato’s reference to the Pillars of Heracles. However, he speculates that this was due to some misinterpretation by Solon.

A year earlier K. T. Frost had anonymously published similar views in The Times of London. This ‘first’ was generously acknowledged by Baikie in his book.

There is now available a free Kindle edition of The Sea-Kings of Crete(b) .
