Rand Flem-Ath

RAND FLEM-ATH is a 5 th generation Canadian living with his wife and co-author (ROSE FLEM-ATH) on the Pacific coast of Canada. In 1976, Rand discovered that an ancient map of Atlantis published in 1665 by the Jesuit priest, Athanasius Kircher, featured a remarkably accurate depiction of the sub-glacial contours of Antarctica (features unknown to the modern world until 1958). Convinced that Antarctica was Atlantis, Rand sought a climatic explanation for how people could have once lived on the now icy island continent. The answer came by reading the books of Professor Charles Hapgood with whom he corresponded about the theory of earth crust displacement from 1977 to 1982 (when Hapgood died). In 1981, Rand published in the scientific literature using the theory of earth crust displacement to explain the sudden global rise of agriculture around 9,600 B.C. (Plato’s date for the destruction of Atlantis). Rand then embarked upon a comprehensive study of world mythology using the resources of the Reading Room of the British Museum. Further research in archaeology, anthropology, geology, and the philosophy of science resulted in a trio of books, WHEN THE SKY FELL (with Rose), THE ATLANTIS BLUEPRINT (with Colin Wilson) and ATLANTIS BENEATH THE ICE (with Rose).
