    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 »

Corsetti, Jimmy

Jimmy Corsetti is the owner of the YouTube channel Bright Insight which deals with a range of what is considered ‘fringe’ subjects. Over the past few years, he has been advocating the Richat Structure as the remains of Atlantis, despite a total lack of archaeological evidence and so much scientific support for its identification as a ‘salt dome.

Corsetti was overjoyed and felt vindicated when David Edwards published Atlantis Solved [1926] in April 2022 which also endorsed the Richat Structure as Atlantis. However, Edwards admits that he has built his claim on Corsetti’s earlier ideas regarding Richat and is only offering an echo.

Edwards, David

David Edward is the author of Atlantis Solved: The Final Definitive Proof [1296], a slender 99-page volume published in 2022 that endeavours to prove that the Richat Structure was the location of Atlantis. The author claims to have been inspired by videos by Jimmy Corsetti, on the Bright Insight YouTube channel, who has been promoting the Structure as Atlantis for the past four years.

This identification has no archaeological or geological evidence to support it and more importantly, it conflicts with Plato’s account. These shortcomings are dealt with in greater detail in the Richat Structure entry here. However, Ulf Richter has succinctly pointed out that the feature is too wide (35km), too elevated (400 metres) and too far from the sea (500km) to be seriously considered as the location of Atlantis. To which I would add that with well over 3,000km between them, to launch an attack on Athens from Richat would have been totally impractical.

It is now being trailed that Edward’s second book, Fingerprints of the Atlanteans, will be published in late 2023. We can expect this to be a reprise of his first book. The pre-publication blurb ends with the claim that “this book changes everything!” I have heard that so many times before(a).
