Atlantis in the Azores
I plucked the above image from the Frontiers of Anthropology operated with Dale Drinnon. The text does push an expansive view of the Atlantean world that is a little over the top when the data conforms well with a pretty exciting story in the event.
The maps however are very important and it is data that I have been waiting for.
Recall that I have recently posted that the upsurge of the
region, resulting from the collapse of the Great Ice Age had the natural
consequence of allowing for an equivalent crustal decline. I observed that the easiest region to
experience a decline would surely be the Trans Atlantic Ridge. The most obvious candidate would have to be
the Lyonese land mass, much larger than Great Britain and just West of it
and fully submerged.
This left open the question of further subsidence along the ridge between Lyonese and the equator. This obviously opened the door for the Atlantean legend itself. Yet we had no data.
Now we have the above. Essentially a mountainous ring is shown and apparently on better images we have a central cone. Far more important is the basaltic outflow that is mapped and massive. We get the picture of a subsiding island structure that is quite huge along with massive undersea basaltic volcanism. It is also clear that an uplift here could easily been hundreds of miles across. The pumice float from all this is recent and has been dated somewhat although I suspect it is far from precise as yet.
Pumice debris has been found in northern waters that date from 4000 years ago to 6,000 years ago according to one paper I came across. That coincides well with my expected window of activity although the critical catastrophic event appears to have taken place around 1159 BC. However this critical event has been blamed on Hecla alone. Yet the 1159 BC event could easily have followed thousands of years of basaltic out flows similar to
Hawaii. The subsidence event could easily have been a
final dénouement. Hecla itself interior
to the coast and is an unlikely source of pumice.
The main event was the subsidence itself and this likely occurred in discrete events first perhaps with Lyonese and later with Poseidia on which Atlantis was established. The volcanism was integral to both
and the region about Atlantis itself and was ongoing the same as many other
As previously posted, the emergence of a global thalocracy was clearly an event triggered by the Great Pyramid. Conforming dates all effectively go live at this time. I suspect efforts to trace things much before 2440 BC appear badly misplaced. Societies existed but were barely communicating as no economic driver existed.
