Drilling for Atlantis

When a couple of geologists turn their scientific know-how to a search for evidence of a lost continent off the coast of Florida, it’s not surprising that synchronicity would come into play. That was the case with a geological investigation conducted by William Hutton and Jonathan Eagle in March 2007 that took place beneath the water near Bimini.

Hutton and Eagle decided to take up the quest proposed by Edgar Cayce in a reading from 1932 in which he described Bimini as a location where evidence of Atlantis could be found. Here is Cayce’s reading:

…while the destruction of this [Atlantean] continent and the peoples are far beyond any of that as has been kept as an absolute record, that record in the rocks[emphasis added] still remains….

The position as the continent of Atlantis occupied, is that as between the Gulf of Mexico on the one hand – and the Mediterranean upon the other. Evidences of this lost civilization are to be found in the Pyrenees and Morocco on the one hand, British Honduras, Yucatan and America upon the other. There are some protruding portions within this that must have at one time or another been a portion of this great continent. The British West Indies or the Bahamas, and a portion of same that may be seen in the present – if the geological survey would be made in some of these – especially, or notably, in Bimini [emphasis added] and in the Gulf Stream through this vicinity, these may be even yet determined.

(364-3; February 16, 1932)

However, you can’t just go to Bimini and start drilling into the earth. You need a permit from the government of the Bahamas. That’s where the synchronicity came into play. Hutton and Eagle own a company that coincidentally already had received a drilling permit for unrelated research. That meant they didn’t have to approach the government and say they were looking for Atlantis and wanted start drilling. Instead, they were able to combine the two projects.

What they found was a missing rock strata that would have served as the surface of a land mass at least 13,000 years ago when the sea level was 130 feet lower.

Here is what they say in their conclusion:

“A reasonable implication of these missing rocks is that, during a period of time covering perhaps 800,000 years — or a minimum of 120,000 years at the least — an ancient land surface in the Bimini area could have been above sea-level during times of continental glaciations when ocean water levels were depressed due to the oceanic water mass locked up in ice sheets. That ancient land surface could have been the continent of Atlantis.”

You can find their complete story of their research, which involved underwater drilling near Bimini  here at Hutton Commentaries.  They’ve also written a book.

As I (Rob) was reading this article, I paused and wondered if I had lived during the time of Atlantis. I wondered what life was like, and I also wondered if there are people  I know now who lived at that time and place. That very instant the phone rang, not my cell phone, but our land line, which we mostly use for radio interviews when we’re not on Skype. If the phone rings, it’s usually a telemarketer. But not this time.

I answered it and to my surprise it was Connie Cannon, who comments on blog posts as mathmajik. In the decade that we’ve known Connie, this was only the second or third time that she has called us. Her call was about a computer problem she was having and wanted to find out if we had received a comment that she had sent. She said her e-mail wasn’t working and that was why she called. Since I like to look for messages in signs and symbols, her call seemed like an answer to the question that I had just posed. Also, my call was about ‘land’ – Atlantis – and as I said the call came on our rarely used land line!

I should also add that in the years we’ve known Connie, we’ve discussed a variety of esoteric/mystical topics with her through emails and the blog, but I don’t ever recall her mentioning anything about Atlantis. So I told later told her about the synchronicity of her call and asked about her thoughts on the possibility that she had lived in Atlantis.

Here is what she wrote:

“I agree that it is significant, in more ways than one. For most of my adult life I’ve had a sense of having been in Atlantis at the time of its destruction. Can’t explain it, but believe it’s true and that my incarnation there has impacted this current life in several ways, especially certain fears and phobias, but also my spiritual path.”

    Now i am curious, mainly because I want to study creative writing in college. Thanks.

  2. I’m struck with the various mentions of email or computer not working since I just wrote to Trish that my email was not working for a while yesterday. I blamed Mercury retrograde.

    Interesting post!

    I’ve always been fascinated with the stories of Atlantis, and remember reading about the archeologist Valentine’s efforts to find the “Bimini Wall”. Conventional archeologists have dismissed his finds, just as they have dismissed the extraordinary phenomenon of the Bosnian Pyramids. But I believe, as a dowser and someone who loves to visit sacred sites, the ancients had a great understanding of the Earth Mysteries, an understanding we have long ago lost. Some have suggested that the Bermuda Triangle phenomenon might be linked to an Atlantean power source long submerged in the ocean……..fascinating to speculate.

    One think mythologically I so often think of now is how the story of Atlantis parallels our time. Greed, exploitation of the planet, and abuse of power is rampant and threatening virtually all life, just as our technology, and so many evolved souls, are equally capable of marvels, wonders, great beauty and a shift in human consciousness. Perhaps Atlanteans faced the same struggle………and lost. I think of these things every day now, and hope that we are not also living “before the deluge”.

    Well, this article is definitely a synchro for me, as I’m presently revising my Fate of Atlantis novelization for serial publication in IndyMag! I did a double-take when I saw the title of today’s post. Good one! 🙂

    Please check trash bin for emails. My computer continues to malfunction! THANKS, and hope everyone will have a beautiful Bunny-Day tomorrow!

    Our middle son Kenny has always had an incredibly clear “memory” of “being somewhere in the ocean and watching a huge land mass sink into the water. He refers to it as an “impossibly enormous island” and says he was terrified, and could also see a volcano erupting in the distance as he himself sank and drowned. These memories began long before he was old enough to have any knowledge or awareness of Atlantis or Lemuria. Now age 49, he has become convinced over years of reading and seeing material about Atlantis, (and certain pictures elicit deep fear in him), he has no doubt he was in Atlantis. Among his memories, he says he watched a “massive mountain of crystal’ sink out of sight, and he definitely hasn’t read anything about such a crystal having been in Atlantis.
