Apparently, the religion of the Atlantean superpower bore great resemblance
to the Greek religion – people worshipped sky, sea and sun. A blend of
different nations, the Greek have been existing since 2000 BC, that is 7 000
years after the island’s doom. Let alone the Greek Pantheon of gods which is
even younger. How is it possible, then, that Poseidon founded Atlantis, that
Atlas was the first king and that Zeus razed everything to the ground?
Did Atlantis have a religion unknown to us? Or did the Atlanteans base
their religion on the same religious roots that also underlie ours today? Or,
even more speculative, were the Atlanteans the founders of our present view
of the world? As is common knowledge today, the world’s great religions are
based upon the same pattern:
||the nothingness, total emptiness,
||the emergence of earth, flora
||the creation of the first human
being and his female companion
||the punishment of people
||the arrogance of people
||the Flood as punishment for the
||the Saviour who creates a new
generation of man and the resulting redeemers like Jesus, Buddha,
Quetzalcoatl or Muhammad
Apparently, nothing has changed until today. Basically, our religions
remained the same during the last 2 000 years. However, disagreement on
several topics led to the split of religions: there is discord in the fields
of garment colours, interpretations or the way one seems to know the Saviour.
The first religion recorded in writing to make use of the above pattern
is Judaism, basis of Christianity. When it comes to the origin of today’s
religions, Judaism, as old as it may be, is an equal fallacy – the roots of
our present world view lie at a much deeper level. 5 000 years ago, the
Sumerians had a complex religious system including all stories of today’s
great religions. They were the first to write about total emptiness and the
Flood. Hence, all religions can be assumed to originate from a single
primeval religion which, in turn, came from somewhere in Mesopotamia.
Now let us have a look at the facts: the Greek religion is very young and
the underlying religious roots both of the Greek people and the Occident
originate from Mesopotamia. But how, then, is it possible that a western
Atlantis had a Mediterranean way of belief when the roots of these religions
come from the area around the Red Sea, in the east?
Is it true, then, that Atlantis is nothing but a vivid product of Plato’s
imagination that becomes unmasked through such simple topics as religion? Or
did Solon leave behind an incorrect translation of the pillars? I think we
should have another look at the report in order to avoid mistakes.
|“(...) Yet, before proceeding
further in the narrative, I ought to warn you, that you must not be
surprised if you should perhaps hear Hellenic names given to foreigners.
I will tell you the reason of this: Solon, who was intending to use the
tale for his poem, enquired into the meaning of the names, and found
that the early Egyptians in writing them down had translated them into
their own language, and he recovered the meaning of the several names
and when copying them out again translated them into our language. My
great-grandfather, Dropides, had the original writing, which is still in
my possession, and was carefully studied by me when I was a child.
Therefore if you hear names such as are used in this country, you must
not be surprised, for I have told how they came to be introduced.(...)“
A translation that gives a faithful rendering of the gods – done twice: from
Atlantean to Egyptian gods and from Egyptian to Greek gods. Hence, Atlantis
was not called Atlantis and Poseidon was not the founder. Atlas was not the
first king and Zeus never saw Atlantis, for he did not even exist at that
time. The only possible conclusion is that Atlantis was polytheistic with a
thunder god or sky god at the top. In addition, Atlantis was founded by a
sea god. But who they were will be kept a secret forever.
