Michael Szymczyk (1981- ) “is an independent filmmaker, photographer, philosopher and novelist” and is the author of Atlantis & Its Fate In The Postdiluvian World . In it, he makes some extraordinary claims without providing any evidence. He pinpoints an underwater site near Kodiak Island off the northwest Pacific coast of Alaska as the location of Atlantis and then suggests that an Atlantean empire stretched all the way across America and the Atlantic to include all of the Mediterranean as far as Egypt. This ignores the fact that Plato only identifies, without ambiguity, southern Italy and part of North Africa along with some of the nearby islands as Atlantean territory. Zymczyk offers speculation rather than evidence to support these wild claims.
To add further confusion, the author includes further speculation regarding such matters as the possibility of ancient electronics, time travel and UFOs, sorry, UAPs. For me, the book lacks focus, as it tries to deal with Plato’s Atlantis, ancient technology, time travel and fails with all three.
