This review is from: Edgar Cayce's Atlantis and Lemuria: The Lost Civilizations in the Light of Modern Discoveries (Paperback)
The main problem with this book is that it rests on the author's quirky insistence that Atlantis sank in 1200 BC. This does not agree with Edgar Cayce or Plato, or any of the scholars that have devoted years of study to uncovering historical information about Atlantis.
Joseph follows Plato's guidance and places Atlantis in the vicinity of the Atlantic Ridge, but there is no evidence that a large portion of the Atlantic Ridge was above the surface after 10,000 B.C. and a great deal of proof that some of it was above the surface before that time.
He ignores the Cayce Readings that distinctly name dates and changes some of the Readings to reflect his ideas. One must ignore most of what Joseph has written, based as it is on false premise.
For a careful compilation of information from Edgar Cayce, scholars and scientists about the land and people of Atlantis, I suggest "Atlantis: Insights From a Lost Civilization."
