ATLANTIS THE EIGHTH CONTINENT CHARLES BERLITZ PDF

Atlantis: The Eighth Continent by Charles Berlitz is a book in support of the mid-oceanic Atlantis over Mediterranean candidates or being a legend. Bringing forth ruins and cultural evidence from both sides of the Atlantic, Berlitz began his argument by attempting to show a shared connection between numerous cultures across the world that seemed to be influenced by the same source. Then he became chronicling the scientific discoveries of unwater ruins, dismissed by scientists as natural phenomena, that prove ruins of an ancient civilization having existed in the mid-Atlantic. The first is that cataclysms can and do occur within the geological record, but his thoughts and evidence are nothing compared to Dr. Robert M.

Destruction of libraries in Alexandria by the Arabs and in Spain by Spanish Catholics are referenced. These first chapters also reference actual archeological formations that seem to fit a possible supporting hypothesis for Atlantis. After the initial opening, the book is almost a complete reprint of "Chariots of the Gods", which was one of the first Berlitz bestsellers. This is the same material from which a large portion of the current history channel sensationalistic shows are drawn. And after 40 years, the exact same story is being told today word for word as this copy of "Chariots" tells it.

Looking at the references section it is pretty clear that after the first 20 or so which were written prior to , the rest are cross referenced pseudo-history with which the sensationalists author build a web of references in order to lend credibility to unsupportable assertions.

The book also include references to the meat of the Bermuda Triangle material, which I think was a Berlitz bestseller. Given the fact that Berlitz made a lot of money from these books, and the current team of authors are making a fair wage with the reiterative tales, it would really help to support their assertion if they actually did some physical research to support just one or two of their claims.

Any actual artifacts or engineered reconstructive proof that could be supported as engineering literature, should be even more valuable and represent a good return on investment. But after 40 years, other investigators have done the actual reconstructive work to recreate a working Antikytheran calendar instrument and a flying model of the gold bug jewelry.

Working archaeologists are still uncovering Thera, scanning Stonehenge, and developing ground penetrating electronic wave sensors to perform underground analysis at sites without destructive excavation.

North Sea and English channel excavations of proven prehistory artifacts are being uncovered. The site of Tartessos may have been found, and if ever excavated it may be the basis for the Atlantis structural layout as described by Plato. But none of these actual accomplishments can be attributed to the pseudo-history authors. The Bimini road is still out there, and a few feeble attempts to research it have been the basis for television documentaries.

But a full scale investigation and excavation has not been done. If Charles Berlitz and his protoges had real convictions, they should undertake to get a definitive answer to whether this is a natural or man-made structure. An just to stretch this review out, I really do wish that these guys would form a proper reference of historical time versus geological time.

For example, there is no evidence that a drop in the mid Atlantic ridge opened up the Atlantic to the Gulf Stream to allow a warmer Europe and to signal the beginning of the ice ages.

And the claims that some underwater structures had to be created while on dry land, such as the Hudson river valley extension onto the continental shelf, have been demonstrated to be explainable as a result of ice age events that occurred with the melting at the end of that period.

The point of my complaint here is that actual evidential support should be used to support the pseudo-history that Berlitz uses, and he should fund some of the research.

It could be summarized simply to Plato wrote about an island called Atlantis, there are records of white people coming from the sea with better technology, and there might be walls in the ocean. I have read a couple of Charles Berlitz books and they are always quite interesting. In this Atlantis book he shares and offers up a lot of ancient history that you never hear about. Great for the history buff.
