Editorial Reviews

Review

“Once again Frank Joseph has shown that when it comes to Atlantis and related subjects, no one else knows as much. In this case he has taken on two very difficult subjects but has succeeded in extracting some of the most fascinating history anyone has seen in a long time.” (J. Douglas Kenyon, editor of Forbidden History and Atlantis Rising)

“I have reviewed dozens of books on the year 2012 and its meaning and consequences, but Frank Joseph’s Atlantis and 2012 presents us with many facts and research ignored by most of the other guides. I have especially high regard for Frank Joseph’s courage to question what the majority of academia, government, and media around the world have concluded about global warming. They have ignored the research showing global warming is actually the precursor to a new ice age. In addition to all the other fascinating bits to be found in Atlantis and 2012, I find the most important is Joseph’s emphasis on the reminder that global warming may just be the trigger for an oncoming ice age, which we now know can manifest in as little as 20 years!

“The Mayan civilization gave a gift to future humanity in the form of their Mayan calendar. Having witnessed periodic extinctions, they documented these cycles in the hopes of preparing and maybe even preventing what they could not: a dark end for our age. Their message is one of balancing the material and spiritual dimensions, because an imbalance brings on social decay and physical annihilation. Vested interests and the domination of the corporate world, which enforces its status quo, have brought us to the edge of extinction. Although humankind may be vastly diminished, the planet will survive.

“The Atlanteans were much like us--in fact, they are us if you consider reincarnation. Their insatiable appetite for material prosperity and military might mirror the world governments of today. Frank Joseph has used the works of two great seers, Plato and Edgar Cayce, to guide us through our past and future. Thanks to the Atlantis code (which we know as the Mayan calendar), he shows that we still have hope that we might be able to avoid what the Atlanteans failed to avoid. You must read this book--today!” (Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., author of United Symbolism of America and host of 21st Century Radio)

"Mr. Joseph has assembled an impressive array of details, some of which have been drawn from almost forgotten sources. . . . [He] is, without doubt, one of the foremost writers on lost civilizations, and makes it easy to follow and understand his reasoning. Whether or not you believe in these continents; whether or not you believe we are living in 'end times'; you can find something of interest within these covers. Pick up a copy." (Michael Gleason, reviewer, May 2010)

"Joseph points to global cataclysms that affected our planet in c.3100 BC, 2200BC, 1600 BC, and 1200 BC. The next cataclysm could coincide with a solar superstorm and a reversal of the Earth's magnetic field, bringing on a new ice age. He cautions that our civilization could well be equally as fragile as those that rose and fell before it under the influence of massive cosmic and terrestrial forces." (Nexus New Times Magazine, Vol. 17, No. 4, June/July 2010)

"New age libraries will relish the unusually concrete approach!" (James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review, June 2010)

"Much has been written over the years about the so-called "Legend of Atlantis." More recently, a number of books have appeared anticipating what will happen to the earth in December 2012. . . for the first time we have in this new book by Frank Joseph the most well researched link between these two subjects." (Alan Glassman, New Dawn Magazine, September 2010)

“Frank Joseph’s Atlantis and 2012 presents thoughtful insights to readers . . . this work provides much food for thought for readers concerned about 2012.” (Intuitive Connections Network, June 2011)

--J. Douglas Kenyon, editor of Forbidden History and Atlantis Rising

Based on more than 25 years of research around the globe and statements from Edgar Cayce about Atlantis and its Pacific sister civilization of Lemuria, Frank Joseph reveals that the Mayan calendar was brought to Mexico by survivors of Atlantis. Uncovering the Atlantean influences in both ancient Mesoamerican culture and ancient Egyptian culture, he links the demise of Atlantis with the birth of the Olmec civilization in Mexico (the progenitors of the Maya), the beginning of the first Egyptian dynasty, and the start of the Mayan calendar.

Joseph explains that the Mayan calendar was invented by the combined genius of Atlantis and Lemuria and describes how it predicts an eternal cycle of global creation, destruction, and renewal. Correlating this recurring cycle with scientific studies on glacial ice cores and predictions from the Hopi, the Incas, and the Scandinavian Norse, Joseph reveals that 2012 could be the start of a new ice age and the advent of a massive solar storm. However, Joseph shows that the Maya knew the way to reestablish civilization’s cosmic balance before time runs out.

FRANK JOSEPH was the editor in chief of Ancient American magazine from 1993 until 2009. He is the author of Advanced Civilizations of Prehistoric America, The Destruction of Atlantis, The Lost Civilization of Lemuria, Survivors of Atlantis, and The Lost Treasure of King Juba. He lives in Minnesota.

The theories gathered here make very interesting reading, informative and thought provoking.

I would say it is more about Atlantis than 2012, but that is great.

An interesting book and I greatly appreciate the amount and depth of research that Frank Joseph has done. However, he apparently buys in all too well to establishment viewpoints concerning life in ancient times on this planet. This requires him to ratchet his dates for the destruction of Atlantis into incorrect spaces. While cometary bombardments occur on this planet at least every 3600 years, the cometary bombardment that resulted in the final destruction of Atlantis occurred approximately 12,000 years ago. (Do a google search for satellite photos of the Carolina Bays for some excellent visuals). The diligent researcher who goes beyond the works of Joseph will come to this undeniable conclusion. The fact that there were highly technological civilizations in prehistoric times is born out by the highly accurate Piri Reis map, showing a sub-glacial antarctica (which was not available in contemporary times until made by aerial radar imaging), based on a map projection determined to have been made about 3800 BC. Mr. Joseph also appears to follow too closely the Egyptologist construction dates for the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid at Giza. Contemporary studies of the RAIN erosion of the Sphinx by Dr. Robert M. Schoch date the monument to well before 5000 BC. Of course, this does not fit in with the standard Egyptologist viewpoint, so it is ignored or angrily debated. The main point I believe I want to make in this review, however, is that one must keep an open mind and look at ALL of the data that is available, in order to have any understanding of the whole subject of Atlantis.

This is the best book I have read on the subject of 2012. Well researched, makes the whole subject of 2012 relevant in history and in today's terms. I have always been fascinated by the legend of Atlantis and this book takes one more step towards the argument for Atlantis and its relevance today. The Mayan connection is fascinating and also rings true to what is happening in the world today in my opinion. Well worth the time to read and discuss...

How chilling it was to read that Atlantis was destroyed because of the greed of the faction called the Sons of Belial. While this may sound as if it has nothing to do with us today, we too have factions that are at war with each other.
One group thinks that the world should be more fair. People shouldn't starve to death while a small percentage of the population has everything. One group thinks that we should find clean ways to power world, ways that don't strip the world of her resources, leaving a polluted scared mess in our wake. There is another group that says greed is good, the world's resources are ours to have no matter what the cost, and that people are poor because they want to be.

If you didn't know better, you'd think that Edgar Cayce was talking about our own society, not two strange groups called the Children of the Law of One and the Sons of Belial. But, history is more of a spiral than a straight line and as Churchill said, if you want to see into the future, study history.

What I really liked about this book is that Frank Joseph quote Cayce's material and then explains it. I have the hardest time with Cayce's antiqued, Biblical way of speaking so it's nice to have someone put it in plain English. There's even a dictionary of sorts, explaining all the strange names that Cayce talks about throughout his readings. The last chapter is called Last Chance or Judgement in 2012? Joseph does a find job of putting into language clear enough for us to get the message the Mayan left us with.

Frank Joseph provides excerpt from Cayce stating that the materialistic Sons of Belial dug into Earth for the extraction of precious minerals. "They penetrated too deeply, however, and set off subterranean forces that resulted in catastrophic seismic upheavals." This eventually resulted in the destruction of Atlantis.

There are rumors that BP has also drilled too deep with it's deepwater project in the gulf oil penetrating a batholith and resulting in an uncontrollable spill including oil spilling from cracks in the earth several miles from the center of the drilling.

This book clearly has relevance to today especially in light of the gulf oil disaster occurring just a few years before 2012.

Frank Joseph has never been an easy writer to read, but always accurate and very informative.
One needs to have a reasonable technical background to follow him comfortably.

I have read many books on 2012 and Atlantis and this one is top notch. I would say it is more about Atlantis than 2012, but that is great. I found it very fascinating how the author was able to combine text from Plato and psychic readings from Edgar Cayce to piece together a very thorough book. Being an author myself, I know how time consuming that process can be. I have read books on Edgar Cayce before and have been amazed at how accurate his predictions became years after he made them. To me, the book, Atlantis and 2012, gives us a rare look behind the veil of our hidden past to see a very possible portrayal of Atlantis and how we came to be who we are today.

I enjoyed the statement that the pyramids of the world were build by the Atlantians after they had fled their homeland. Other books such as Norma Milanovich's, Sacred Journey to Atlantis, also talked about how Atlantis was responsible for the pyramids. If nothing else, it makes you think and wonder if this is true, and if so, what it must have been like to live back then.

One of the most intriguing parts of the book, for me, was that Plato and Cayce talked about the psychic and mental powers of the Atlantians. My book, Awaken Your Power, talks about how our thoughts work to create our reality through such forces called the universal laws which include the law of attraction. Could these powers be remnants of the powers shared by the Atlantians in this book, Atlantis and 2012?

All in all it was a VERY interesting read. The book did get a little dark with 2012 predictions for a short period, but I just choose to ignore that part since I believe we attract our futures with our thoughts. Final vote: I think it would be very difficult to find a better book on Atlantis.
