John B. Alexander
John B. Alexander (1937- ) retired from the US Army with the rank of Colonel in 1988. He has lectured on pre-cataclysmic civilisations and as an underwater demolition expert with the Green Berets he was highly qualified to undertake exploratory diving in the vicinity of Bimini in 1971. He discovered a series of regularly shaped underwater features extending over a considerable area. Alexander was convinced that they were the product of a very ancient civilisation. However, he considered his views compatible with the ‘revelations’ of Edgar Cayce! For me, even more disturbing was his claim in an interview with Brad Steiger[874.59]that he used hypnotic regression to obtain “quite a bit of information on what we call Atlantis.” Plato does not get a look in. Cazeau & Scott[878.10] are even more critical, concluding that the interview shows Alexander to be neither archaeologist nor geologist and that his opinions regarding Bimini are “useless.” Frankly, it seems that Alexander was just one more trying to get on board the Bimini bandwagon.
