Uchronia? Atlantis Revealed 

Uchronia? Atlantis Revealed
Nearly 2,400 years ago, ancient philosopher Plato wrote the story of Atlantis, a compelling tale of an 11,000-year-old island civilization which has since captivated the imagination of poets, authors, and the minds of many scholars who over the centuries kept on searching for the legendary island. 

Today, numerous speculations place Atlantis in locations like the Azores Islands in the middle of the Atlantic, in Spain, somewhere off the coast of southeastern Cyprus, in Malta, or in more exotic locations like Indonesia, Antarctica, even in the "Bermuda Triangle" off the coast of the United States. 

Of course, while some past claims seemed more probable than others, never before has there been a discovery where all the physical characteristics matched Plato's description, until now! Author and researcher Christos A. Djonis, reveals a tangible find where not one or two, but every aspect of the proposed location matches Plato's physical description.

Sacred Science: The King of Pharaonic Theocracy

Sacred Science:  
The King of Pharaonic Theocracy
R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1887-1961), one of the most important Egyptologists of this century, links the sacred science of the Ancients to its rediscovery in our own time. Sacred Science represents the first major breakthrough in understanding ancient Egypt and identifies Egypt, not Greece, as the cradle of Western thought, theology, and science.
