Many years have been spent (by many different researchers) looking for the mythical city of Atlantis (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to these shows). Now an international team of archeologists think they've finally found the evidence they've been looking for, in quite an unglamorous place: the mud flats of southern Spain.
We've learned the destructive properties of tsunamis from the recent events in Japan, and this is probably what sank Atlantis as well. MSNBC quotes researcher Richard Freund as saying, ""It is just so hard to understand that it can wipe out 60 miles inland, and that's pretty much what we're talking about. This is the power of tsunamis." The Greek philosopher Plato described Atlantis over 2,000 years ago as "an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Hercules" (today known as the Straits of Gibraltar.)
The team analyzed satellite imagery which revealed a series of concentric circles, buried in the mud in an area near Cadiz. Freund and his think this may be the site of the actual city of Atlantis, because they have also found what they believe to be a series of "memorial cities" which they believe were built in Atlantis' image by its refugees after the city's likely destruction by a tsunami. They think that Atlanteans who survived the tsunami that wiped out their city-state fled inland and built new cities there.
There are legends about a city that may be Atlantis in the Old Testament as well, and in Whitley's Room, just for subscribers, there are now several short (15 min.) discussions by Whitley Strieber on bible verses. The first covers the meaning of the phrase "because man goeth to his long home" in Ecclesiastes 12:5. It explains this enigmatic phrase in a startling and deeply moving way. The second in the series covers John 13: 34: "Love one another." When Whitley begins talking about what the imposition of doctrine did at the Council of Nicea, this quickly becomes one of the most powerful discussions on any biblical passage you are going to hear. These brief fifteen minutes have the potential to free us from thousands of years of unacknowledged bondage to doctrine, and bring vivid new life to the experience of Jesus.
The third is on the opening lines of Genesis (you've never heard an interpretation like THIS before)! In another, Whitley Strieber talks about how the Romans saw Jesus, and uses the gospels and his deep knowledge of Roman history to explain what Jesus meant to them and why they executed him, and why they did it in the precise way that they did. And the latest is on the REAL meaning of the "marriage feast at Cana."
