Some Video Links (YouTube)
-Some pics for good measure-
1) The first link is "Atlantis- An Interpretation" by Manly P. Hall, as read by Josh Reeves (1 hr 17 mins):
Some commentary on this: first of all it is known that thousands of years ago the climate was different. According to another source of Algonquian Oral Traditions I am aware about, it is said that the land was warmer in those days. Also the sea-levels hadn't risen yet.
Another point here is that the suffix "atl" (as in the source for the words "Atlantic", "Atlantis") does not show up in the Latin language or any European/ Old World language. This means that in the story of Atlantis, the Egyptian priesthood who originally told this to the Greeks (whom Plato later wrote down and retold in his "Republic") were using a word with the suffix "atl" coming straight from the New World (the America's), in most probability. The suffix "atl" is in use such as in the word "atlatl", the spear-like weapon used throughout North/ Central America (he hits on this point @ 23 mins in the link, drawing different comparisons from my own). With that said, the whole Atlantis thing is a fascinating topic, although there is a lot of rubbish written about it as well, so I am picky about the sources I use for this topic, "thinking outside the box" or even, looking into a larger picture here. Also look for other links/ insights about this topic I have previously posted throughout this blog from time to time- the more good info one has from various sources, the stronger the case for it.
2) "The Emerald Tablets of Thoth" also read by Josh Reeves (4 hrs.) He does a good reading IMO, but makes some unnecessary comments throughout.:
3) Samuel Poe on the city of Venice, Italy. One striking thing Samuel talks about is the way Venice was made using canals, much like the old Aztec cities in Mexico. "Chippewa Indians and the Kingdom of Venice". Thought provoking. (24 mins):
Pics are of pre-colonial Algonkian stone structures using a center-weight stone building technique, located along the North Atlantic Seaboard of the United States. Pics by Matt (Matthew) Howes.
