Had the mysterious and evil "sphinx-like" python spirit in Acts 16:16 fooled us all including Plato by making us believe that a "mixed up of Biblical symbols" island Atlantis had existed in a remote past? To reproduce a contra-creation story out of it? The answer is most likely, "yes".

Does the Bible really keep silent on Atlantis and Troy? Or did we read the Bible in the wrong way? If the city of Enoch in Genesis 4 was the first blueprint for Atlantis, then where and how will the Atlantis model end? Was Atlantis "mirrored"? And what was the Atlantis underworld? How does the mighty earthquake in Revelation 16:18 correspond with the earthquake in Critias 108? How did Atlantis move between sunrise and sunset? And what does “Tzaphon” “north” or “midnight have to do with Atlantis, Cairo, Jerusalem or Babylon? What are the mysterious aionian times in the Bible? What do the Pillars of Hercules have to do with the polarization in western societies? What about Daniel 2:41-43 & Isaiah 26:1-5? And what does the City of Hagar in Galatians 4:24-25 have to do with Atlantis? Other researchers were just searching for an island Atlantis while I search in my book for a "dualistic" Atlantis that was innerly dividid. As satan's empire is innerly divided (Matthew 12:26). The main gods in Plato's Atlantis story were very well known in the Bible. Athena was the Canaanite goddess Astarte (1 Kings 11:5), Poseidon was Dagon in Judges 16, aka Ansjaar in Sura 9:117, while Heracles was the god Melqart of Tyrus. It was Alexander the Great who destroyed Tyrus in an Atlantis way (Ezekiel 26-28). He was predicted in Daniel 8:21. For this reason we can say that Atlantis was a theological rather than an archeological issue.

A new Greek world empire will rise

The Bible teaches us that a new Alexander will come. Not Cina, Russia, India or USA will be the Fourth Reich but Greece. The leopardess in Revelation 13:2 is the same as the leopardess in Daniel 7:6. This leopardess is Greece. No matter how disabled Greece looks like in 2019, the Bible teaches us that God will do a miracle to Greece. The End Time would begin around 2030, two thousand years after the resurrection. This means that the final Greek empire will rise before 2030. A new Alexander will stand up and conquer the Middle East. He will settle his headquarters in rebuilt Babylon. Is this not a mirrored image of the war between Athens and Atlantis? Only time and place differ. Generations looked for Atlantis and Troy. But we we all unconsciously knew what they were. The Bible reveals the real identity of Atlantis. (Not Tarshish). Atlantis seems to have less to do with a bunch of rocks on the sea bottom but instead of that it has everything to do with the end of world capitalism. Capitalism is in fact religious Mammonism and an immediate rival of Paulinian Christianity. The real Atlantis is in the desert, not in the sea. If we "mirror" Atlantis and shine the light of the Bible over Plato's story, the results will be very interesting. Did the python spirit in Acts 16:16 mix Biblical symbols into an invented dualistic island Atlantis of which "mirroring" was the central principle? And who was Socrates really? Who is Allah and what is Atlantislam? I wrote my 582 pages book on Atlantis in Dutch language.

De echte Reformatie: We zien elkaar allemaal weer


Deze website preekt alverzoening, een woord dat in Kolossenzen 1:20 staat. We zien elkaar allemaal weer! Dat is de echte boodschap van de Bijbel (1 Timotheüs 4:10). Ook de dieren zien we terug (Psalm 36:6, Romeinen 8:21). Niet in een hiernamaals zien we elkaar weer maar na onze opstandingen uit de dood. Het woord "hel" was een foute vertaling van Gehenna dat het Hinnomdal bij Jeruzalem is. Het woord "eeuwig" was een foute vertaling van het woord olam/aion dat een periode aanduidt.

Ik opereer in de geest van de Bereërs (Handelingen 17). De wereld heeft geen belang bij opwekkers maar des temeer bij Bereërs die de geschriften kritisch onderzoeken. Voor meer informatie noem ik dit boek of de Engelse tekst. Over dood en opstanding:

Rood Goud

De titel van deze website, het "Rode Goud van Parvaïm" gaat over de kleur van het rode goud uit Parvaïm. Niemand weet exact waar Parvaïm lag. Ik houd het op de stad Sippar aan de Eufraat.


Een sleutelwoord in de Bijbel is het Griekse woord "aion" (Hebreeuws "olam"). Een aion is een lange periode. De Bijbel kent waarschijnlijk vijf van zulke perioden die als panelen naast elkaar staan (Efeziërs 3:9, 11). Zie deze studie.

Polarisatie versus diversiteit

Anno 2018 is er veel te doen over polarisatie en diversiteit. Echte samenhang kan alleen vanuit een brandpunt ontstaan. Dit brandpunt is de opgestane christus. In Hem krijgt alles samenhang (Kolossenzen 1:16-17; Johannes 1:1-3; Romeinen 11:36; 1 Korinthe 8:6; 15:27-28; Kolossenzen 1:16-17; 1:20; Hebreeën 1:3; 2:8; Efeze 4:8-10 en Openbaring 4:11). In Romeinen 16 staat een voorbeeld van een diverse oecumene die totaal anders gedefinieerd werd dan wat wij onder diversiteit verstaan.


Tenslotte is de Eindtijd aanstaande. Ene Dionysius Exiguus knoeide met onze jaartelling waardoor we dertig jaar voorlopen op de Bijbelse tijdslijn. Diverse typologieën in de Bijbel wijzen erop dat Jezus 2000 jaar na Zijn opstanding terugkeert. Die termijn is nagenoeg om. Uitleg hierover vindt u hier.

Atlantis versus de Bijbel

De echte botsing der beschavingen vond krap tweeduizend jaar geleden plaats op de Areopagus – de Heuvel van Mars – in Athene, toen de apostel Paulus er het evangelie verkondigde. De gebeurtenis was een confrontatie tussen Jeruzalem en Athene. Of beter gezegd: tussen Atlantis en de Bijbel. Zie deze studie

Dan is er deze historische toespraak van Rich Nathan over de val van Rome en 9/11:

Atlantis as an anti-Semitic story

Atlantis was not simply “just” an island in a remote past that existed beyond Gibraltar in the ocean. Atlantis fits perfectly in the western dimension of Tzafon, which means “midnight”. It is incorrect to compare the downfall of Atlantis with the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. This Edenic fall was designed by the God of Heaven and earth Himself and not by Poseidon who was in fact the serpent that invaded Eden in Genesis 3.

The fall of Atlantis has much more similarities with the downfall of EndTimes Babylon in Revelation 16:18 (compare with Critias 108). Babylon on the Euphrates was both the eastern and northern dimension of Tzafon. Her armies invaded Jerusalem from the north. How crazy and brilliant it was to mirror the downfall of EndTimes Babylon into a remote past and to make a contrary creation story of it. At this mythical island Atlantis it was not the God of Heaven and Earth who introduced evil to the island but Poseidon, the Greek equivalent of Dagon.

Dagon was the Philistine Deity and the second blueprint of Poseidon while the serpent in Eden was the first blueprint of Poseidon before the Flood. The Philistines from Crete (Bible: Kaftor) were the arch enemies of the Israëlites. So what was a Philistine deity doing in Plato’s story about the rise and downfall of Atlantis that resonated in every way with the downfall of EndTimes Babylon in Revelation 17-18 and with the downfall of Tyrus in Ezekiel 26-28?

The storyline of Atlantis seemed to cover the highlight of the ministry of Sint John with his book of Revelation. The storyline of Athens seemed to cover the highlight of the ministry of the apostle Paul’s speech on the Areopagus. This Areopagus was the domein of Athena in Acts 17. On this “Mars Hill” Paul faced the gods of Atlantis as he cited the Greek poet, Aratus who on his turn had written his own translation of Homer’s Odyssey. Aratus knew the story of Troy. Paul had been studying the scriptures at the feet of a rabbi named Gamaliel (Acts 22:3). He knew his classics. Paul had certainly heart of Homer’s Odyssey and the story of Troy.

If Poseidon aka Dagon was responsible for the evil that was introduced into Atlantis, then the God of Heaven and Earth was not an almighty God anymore. At best He was a bit more almighty than Poseidon. If a lesser God introduced evil in the world, then there were suddenly two competetive Gods instead of an almighty God who also created evil, war and famine (Isaiah 45:7). The downfall of Atlantis was at the same time the enthronement of the almighty God of heaven and earth of his power to create evil. Poseidon had actually won this game. As the rejection of the gospel by the Israelites had cleared the road for Paul to bring the gospel to the nations (Acts 28), it seemed that the downfall of Atlantis had also wept Israel out of Plato’s Atlantis story.

In Acts 14:12 the Greek compared Paul with Hermes and Barnabas with Zeus, the same god who had punished Atlantis. In Acts 28 the people from Malta thought Paul to be a God when he was bitten by a Poseidon like serpent. On Malta, Paul was in an Atlantis like situation from where he – coming from Crete – escaped to Sicily on a ship named Dioscures (Acts 28:11). These Dioscures were the Roman Pillars of Hercules and named Castor and Pollux.

Why did Plato come up with such a religous story that was clothed with so many symbols that we find in the book of Revelation? And more: why was the main protagonist absent in the Atlantis story? This protagonist was of course, Israel. Was this by accident? Or was Plato’s Atlantis story a Greek variant of early anti-Semitism? Not for nothing it was the apostle Paul who was sent by the resurrected Christ to the Areopagus to be confronted with the Gods of Atlantis. A better question is: who was Plato anyway?
