The legendary old Atlantis in the
by Karl Juergen Hepke
It is nowadays regarded as
scientifically proved, that nearly 10 000 - 12 000 years ago, or following a
date of the old Maya-calendar about 9500 B.C. a devastating event happened on
earth, which had far reaching consequences for life of that time and caused
considerable regrouping of land and sea areas. So in Siberian ice were found
mammouths, the flesh of which was so quickly frozen that it was, thousands of
years after freezing , still edible. In hippopotamusses and other for
But also from other parts of the earth there are
proofs of extermination of entire herds of animals which were found far away
from their native country. So , for example, an gigantic graveyard of elephants
was found in the Columbian Andes and an enormous field of dead sea-elephants in
front of the coast of
To the level of science of today there is only one theorie that explains all these details of an world-wide catastrophe. It says, that an enormous meteorit or asteroid had struck the earth. It had enough energy to disturb the spin of earth. The earth began to stagger and the oceans left their natural bed cause of the mass-forces and flow over the lower situated countries in a gigantic wave, sweeping away all animal or human life and dumping it at places where the current stopped. In other areas, in which the water rose more slowly, because of greater distance to the sea, the animals could fly to hills, where the rising water drunk them at last.
In the memory of all people of the earth this event
lives as story of "The Flood", in which only survived who went into a
ship or chest like Noah in the Bible or clung to a swimming beam and was washed
ashore at a protruding mountain. In addition to the effect of the asteroid´s
impact is today assumed, that earth had accumulated a considerable instability
caused by the gigantic masses of ice, which had piled on the mountains of
Because the earth is on account of its iron bearing core a permanent magnet, staid the magnetic North and South Pole at its old place. This old place is situated on the Polar Circle and it is therefore possible, that before the described moving of the poles the earth´s axis was vertical to the orbit of the earth round the sun. That means , that there were no seasons on earth at that time. The sun shined more or less, corresponding to the degree of latitude. Because the poles got nearly no sunshine, it was possible, that there grew a gigantic mass of ice. Nevertheless the position of the earth´s axis vertical to its orbit can be seen as normal position from physical point of view, because nearly all physical forces are optimal in balance.
The assumption, that earth´s axis was vertical in time of the old cultures of Atlantis I, the old iranian culture and the old cultures of the East, which are not researched in that point until now, makes clear, why the calendars of these old nations, as the old Celts, the Egyptians and the Sumerians, counted with the moon. Because of the missing seasons the run of earth round the sun was without interest.
If you liked it more warm you went to the south, if you liked it more cool, you took the way to North. There were less thunderstorms and natural catastrophes and also less earthquakes. That this time left in human mind the idea of a "golden age" or an "paradise" is, facing these features, only natural.
Today the earth is in an not equable position. The forces of sun and moon try to put it back in the old stable position and exert pressure on the swimming floes of the continents. This produces again and again earthquakes at the edges of these floes. The not equable position of the earth is also visible in the still resting swaying of the earth´s axis called "praecession".
Although you could suppose, that the postponement of the poles, at the one side into the water and on the other side to the land of the Antarctic were nearly balancing each other, the level of the sea rose in the following time which was accompanied by a warming time and the end of a glacial epoch. The increase of the sea lies between 100 and 180 m because it was superimposed at several places by a rise of land.
A country which was struck extremely hard by the
catastrophe was South and
The center of this former country are the gigantic
banks of Bahama with the islands of Andros, Exuma and Eleuthera. Western of
them is the "Tongue of Ocean", a ditch of depths round 8000 m and at
its southern part there are two oval holes of several kilometre diameter and
unknown depth where the impact holes of the asteroid are supposed.
On this plate of Bahama were found astonishing things. It was before the flooding an expanded country with bays and inland waters and consisted of one ore some large islands. Since 1968 until now here were made surprising discoveries which are pointing to the fact, that this country has carried a signifying and varying culture before its destruction by the asteroid and following flooding.
Near Bimini were found under water constructions which
you could take for roads, terraces, docks, and collapsed walls. In the
utilization of gigantic stones they are remembering the time before the Inkas
The bigger stones of three or four-and-a-half meter length form straight going avenues with two parallel roads. It is interrupted by two widenings of big flat stones the ends of which are positioned on upright set stones. This method of building is comparable to that used at west-european dolmen. The southeastern end of this road construction ends in a waved bend which surfaces again at an other place and gives the impression, that it had former surrounded whole Bimini. Three short dams, built of exactly formed big stones are of same width and are ending in cornerstones.
Because all these constructions are under water, it is difficult to make excavations like on dry ground. Only experienced divers could identify ,that the bulky pillars which supported some of the stones could not be in that position by natural means and that at least these parts of the roads were built artificially.
Additionally were found in the sea area of the
Bahama-embankment as on the ground of the sea in the neighbourhood of
All this shows really , that in this area the sea
covers the remains of a great culture, which was nearly totally destroyed by
the impact of the asteroid. Nearly, because the megalithic constructions at the west-european coast of
Why of all people the far away living Indians (D) saved the story of these sunken countries and its high culture and civilization until today is shown in other chapters of TOLOS.
