I've been studying the topic of Atlantis for over 15 years. I have a degree in anthropology and I took an interest in ancient American anomalies in the early 90s. Over the years I have become thoroughly versed in the works of Graham Hancock, Rand Flem-Ath, and Robert Bauval, among others. I've approached the topic from one of inquiry: specifically, if there were a global civilization that was seriously disrupted by the rising seas at the end of the ice age, where would the evidence be? Under water.

I was skeptical of the claims I found in the Professor's website when I first came upon them. Mainly because I was somewhat biased by other theories. But the more I read about his research, the more interesting it became. By the time I got a copy of this book in my hands I couldn't put it down.

Now, some have commented on the writing style or problems with the website. I imagine an erudite Brazilian scholar speaking to me and I can completely get that experience while reading this translation. In fact, the repetition that often occurs in the book serves a specific purpose: to drive home the main points. Sure, the website issues which appear to be connected to the webmaster, not the publisher, are inconvenient, but for me they do not take away from the message of this book.

I believe this book is an important first step towards awakening humanity to our roots.



In this book we have a SERIOUS treatment of a topic of massive consequence. If 1% of the students in universities around the world can be influenced by the hypothesis presented herein, I am sure that within 100 years this will be accepted as fact as the history of humanity on this planet.

The author's huge background in the field of Science distinguishes this book from others. In fact there we have deciphered - from the point ot the scientific method - the enigma of the localization of the lost continent, from the legacy of Plato and other sages.

Repleted of clever observations - the author reveals himself as an expert in other matters such as Mithology, Symbology, Comparative Religion and so on - this book present us a bright theory on the Atlantis demise, due to the worldwide cataclism provoked by the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano, some 11600 years BP (before present), exactly at the end ot the Pleistocene Age.

In this sense, he identifies the location of the lost continent in Indonesia, just under the South China Sea, submerged at least 130 meters, radically diferent from other theories now in vogue as those based on localizations such Cyprus and The Black Sea regions.

The several intriguing revelations, mainly that concerned to the relationship between Atlantis and the Terrestrial Paradise, transform this book to an unexpected source of investigation and study.

Finally, it is important to point out the additional and innovative electronical links to the footnotes which facilitate the access to countless sites of correlated matters.

In Atlantis: The Lost Continent Finally Found, Professor Arysio Santos makes a persuasive and well researched case for Atlantis being in the region of Indonesia. In going through this masterful and erudite work, the reader will find his preconceptions challenged. Plato said that Atlantis lay beyond the Pillars of Hercules. We tend to assume that the Pillars or Hercules are located at the Straits of Gibraltar, but Santos, relying on careful study of ancient texts, shows that the name Pillars of Hercules in ancient times was applied to many locations. Santos makes a convincing case that the best fit for the Pillars of Hercules is the Sunda Straits connecting the Indian Ocean with the Pacific. Of course, there is much more than this to the book, which is essential reading for all who are interested in the Atlantis mystery.

Having learned about the former existence of Sundaland I was interested to read a serious study of the theory that it was the true location of Atlantis. Sadly this book was a disappointment.

First, I was very put off by the author's arrogance. Many times he insisted that his theory was the only correct one and that any writer with a different idea was completely wrong. Worse was his constant bragging that all current interest on Atlantis was entirely due to his previous work. He even went so far as to bad-mouth other, more successful writers on the subject (Hancock) and accusing them of stealing his ideas.

As for his actual research, it was nothing more than a repetitive and monotonous analysis of Plato's writings, with Santos convinced he was the only person in history to ever properly interpret the original meanings. "Plato this, Plato that. Hercules was actually a volcano, Indonesia was Atlantis because I'm telling you it was - if you want proof look on my website". The same handful of arguments just repeated over and over again.

But the biggest problem with this book and Santos' research is the complete lack of any Archaeological evidence to support his theory. For someone so convinced of a particular location it was clear he never actually travelled to Indonesia, and certainly never located or investigated any ancient ruins there (No mention of Gunung Padang). Writers like Hancock and Schoch actually travel to the places they talk about, and do hands-on research instead of just reading. but Santos thinks he's better than them.

If you really want to prove that Indonesia was Atlantis you need to go there, and maybe search for underwater ruins in the Java Sea. If your entire theory is based on a single written source, without a scrap of physical evidence to support it, then your work is utterly meaningless.
