In Thorvald Franke’s review of Kenneth Feder’s Atlantis there is so much that I can’t make sense of that I zoom in on two things. First of all, the 9000 years comes back when Atlantis went under for Plato. Thorvald doesn’t even mention the demise of Atlantis at those 9000 years but simply calls the 9000 years a “distant past”. What does Franke actually mean? 9000 years for what? For Plato’s 30th birthday? Or before Plato walked his dog at 7:00 PM? Or before he wrote the Atlantis story? Was the 9000 years a rounded number or was it 8999 years or just 9001 years earlier? By comparison, the Bible calculates accurately to this day. The Exodus from Babylon was exactly a thousand years after the Exodus from Egypt. By the way, 9000 years before Plato, then you are way ahead of the creation of Adam. Thorvald makes a curious leap to 3000 BC when Egypt came into being. Again, was this a rounded number? And why is 9000 years suddenly 3000 years? Even at 3000 years you are before the Flood and in the second eon. Does Thorvald Franke understand the principle of the eons? In the second eon there were no islands, let alone Atlantis or America. By the way, it is well known that the Egyptian King Lists go too far back in time to make the Egyptian dynasty impressive. The Septuagint, Greek Bible was written in Alexandria and adapted to the Egyptian timeline so that this Greek Bible also has a different timeline compared to the Hebrew Bible. Let’s take the 9000 years of Plato and Atlantis with a very large grain of salt. Furthermore, Thorvald Franke writes that the Strait of Gibraltar was blocked by mud. I have remarked time and again that this was nonsense. In the time of King Solomon there was already shipping contact with Tarshish England. Jonah wanted to flee to England. So the Strait was just navigable. Furthermore, Thorvald Franke claims that Atlantis is not a myth but history. Well, I have stated again and again that the kings of Atlantis have no human bloodlines. Neither do Deucalion and Pyrrha. They stranded their raft on Mount Parnas while Noah stranded thousands of miles away on Ararat. Such a big difference is no longer history but a lie. In other words: goodbye Thorvald C. Franke.
