Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A gifted linguist whose mastery of Greek, Latin, Sanskrit, and Dravida facilitated his lifelong study of Atlantis, Arysio Santos also ran the most popular website on the subject, www.atlan.org, with more than 4 million visitors to date.

More About the Author

Prof. Arysio Nunes Santos is a Nuclear Physicist with a Ph. D. in Nuclear Physics and a Free-Docency in Physical-Chemistry. In the course of his protracted professional career as a scientist, Prof. Santos also worked as a geologist and climatologist, disciplines he came to master, making substantial contributions to Ice Age Theory, particularly in what concerns Catastrophism and the reality of the Flood, the cataclysm which ultimately led to the demise of Atlantis-Eden.

Prof. Santos also wrote several other books and articles on Science and Engineering, as well as on arcane subjects such as Symbolism, Alchemy, the Holy Grail, Comparative Mythology and Religion, etc.. Pursuing these studies with a multi-disciplinary approach based on both the Exact and the Human Sciences, as well as the more traditional disciplines, the author finally managed to discover Atlantis' true location; to prove its identity with Eden and the other traditional Paradises, and to reconstruct in detail the secret history of the Lost Continent described by Plato and several other ancient sages.

A gifted amateur linguist, Prof. Santos masters several tongues, including Greek, Latin, Sanskrit and Dravida, which are essential for the understanding of the ancient myths on Paradise and its destruction by the Universal Flood. This knowledge has enabled him to decipher Etruscan and Pelasgian, the languages of the predecessors of the Greeks and the Romans in the Mediterranean region. Prof. Santos traced these languages back to Sanskrit and Dravida, establishing an ineluctable connection with the East Indies, the true site of Atlantis.

His Internet Site on Atlantis, the one you are visiting now, has received over 2.5 million visits in the last few years, being by far the most popular page in that medium.

This is simply an awesome, and very convincing search about the fabled continent of Atlantis.
D. Crouzet
Of course, there is much more than this to the book, which is essential reading for all who are interested in the Atlantis mystery.

Format: Paperback
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.

Let me emphasize this a bit more: THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK ON HUMAN PREHISTORY.

Why?

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Congratulations.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is no place like home...and finally...Prof. Santos' book definitively locates Plato's lost continent of Atlantis, the original ancestral home of human civilization and the true Garden of Eden. The prodigious, scientific, inter-discipline, research compiled over 30 years, by nuclear physicist, Prof. Santos, finds this prehistory, Ice Age, global culture in Indonesia, with its circular three-ringed capital city, situated in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra, at the base of today's Krakatoa volcano.

Many people are aware of the Atlantis story as recorded by Plato in 360 B.C., which was passed down to him by a relative, and originally told by Athenian ambassador, Solon, who heard it from an Egyptian priest. However, the existence of a pre-flood,advanced, homeland continent, now submerged, exists in over 200 cultures worldwide. Atlantis has never been found because we have been looking in the wrong places. This book presents the overwhelming case that Atlantis could only have been located in today's Indonesia. In pre-flood times, when ocean levels were 300-400 feet lower, this nation of islands, was a great continental landmass, larger in area, than the United States. Temperatures were 10-15 degrees cooler than present, meaning that Atlantis-Indonesia had a year around balmy climate similar to Hawaii. There, in this true paradise, in the Far East, in prehistory, our ancestors, reached a high level of civilization, that apparently was not re-established again, by the Atlantean survivors, until the historical cultures of India,Sumer,and Egypt. The ancient Mayan, Peruvian, Olmec, Brazilian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Maori, and Native American cultures all appear to be linked to an Atlantis-Indonesia origin as well.
