I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato’s own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense. He is frequently referred to as an eccentric and not without reason. He published an extraordinary book, Britain — The Key to World History [ ]in which he claimed among other things, that Edinburgh was the original Jerusalem, London was Damascus and rather worryingly that Bristol was Sodom see map.

In addition he was convinced that 18 th Dynasty Pharaohs ruled the Welsh Britons. In an earlier work [ ] he had identified ancient Britain as Atlantis and claimed that Atlantis was destroyed by a cometary impact in BC. Some years ago Benny J. The authorship of the works of Shakespeare has been questioned by both Ignatius Donnelly [ ] and Beaumont [ ].

Beaumont had completed the manuscript for another book, The Great Deception [ ]shortly before his death.

This has now been edited for publication by Janice Mendez and is now available in print and online. A more recent Jan. Fate [March ], Sir Francis B acon was born in London and died at Highgate. Although he was not a great scientist, his promotion of the Inductive Method a of reasoning did help scientific advancement. He was a lawyer and later a judge. In he was accused of taking bribes, a practice common among judges of the day. InBacon published T he N ew A tlantis cgenerally accepted as a political fable, in which he located his fictional Atlantis off the west coast of America.

In the same book he also describes a number of later inventions which probably also makes Bacon the first science fiction writer. However, David Hatcher Childress claims [ Asteroids a word coined by William Herschel [] used to be known as minor planets while meteoroids is the name applied to asteroids that are less than 50 metres in diameter, although some use 10 metres as the classification threshold. What is probably the first recorded death from a meteorite strike took place in India in February z.

The nucleus can have a diameter of a couple of kilometres. The chemical composition of comets is now known to be varied and much more complex than previously believed. A close encounter with the Earth would have been interesting! In a large comet is estimated to have come within a few hundred miles of Earth. It was photographed and some years later the image was hailed as the first image of an UFO! In recent years comets have come to been seen as potentially more dangerous than asteroids in the event of a collision.

This view was graphically demonstrated when the Levy-Shoemaker comet crashed spectacularly into Jupiter inafter breaking up into as many as 21 large pieces before impacting. This comet was originally about 20 km in diameter. Asteroids and comets have blamed for the demise of Atlantis since the end of the 18 th century.

Comets rather than asteroids were initially blamed because of their high visibility. The early part of the 20th century saw the eccentric William Comyns Beaumont [ ][ ][ ] and the mysterious Hans Schlindler Bellamy [ ] both supporting the idea of Atlantis being destroyed by an encounter with an extraterrestrial object. Spedicato is not alone in believing that impacts by large objects have been responsible for the triggering of past Ice Ages.

As we have seen a large number of writers have suggested an impact with the Earth as the primary or at least the secondary cause of the destruction of Atlantis d. These cosmic collisions have occurred throughout the history of our planet, continuing to this day.

Most of the impact material is small and burns up in the atmosphere. Some low-density objects have penetrated the atmosphere, but disintegrated before actually impacting, generating powerful shock waves commensurate with their size. However, some are large enough to survive the journey to the surface. Depending on the size, density, speed and angle of approach, the consequences of a large impact are difficult for the average person to appreciate.


On 19 Mayjust such an object came withinmiles of Earth: Humankind could have been eradicated. The most famous impact is probably that which in the Yucatan took place 66 million years ago and wiped out the dinosaurs. An online calculator of impact effects was developed by scientists at Purdue University and Imperial College, London was first published in and recently updated g.

Ina crater with a diameter of 30 km was discovered in the Southern Egyptian desert. This discovery may solve a mystery in the same region that has baffled science for over seventy years, namely, the Libyan desert glass that covers an area 60 x km.

However, the largest known impact crater is the Vredefort crater in South Africa with a diameter of km miles. But this may have to take second place to the mile wide crater identified in Hudson Bay in North America.

The spectacular collision of Comet Shoemaker-Levy with Jupiter in July and the manner in which it disintegrated into a number of huge pieces before impacting over seven days, may offer one possible explanation for the mechanism that could produce the apparent clustering of 3 rd millennium BC impacts on Earth.

The meteor that exploded over central Russia in February belonged to this Apollo group. Add to this the risk from comets, normally larger than asteroids, and it is obvious that large-scale impacts are inevitable, however infrequent.

May saw further estimates being published l. Terminology, definitions and number estimates are constantly changing.

Comyns Beaumont – The Irish Origins of Civilization

Asteroids that are in excess of m across with orbits that that come within 7. As recently as an asteroid impact with the Moon was photographed as a flash and only in was the resulting 2Km- wide crater identified.

The estimated energy released by this metre wide object on impact would have been half a Megaton of TNT 35 times the Hiroshima bomb. A hit of this magnitude on Earth could have wiped out a large city. For humans this meant death, destruction, floods, repeated crop failures and probably a breakdown in any existing civil order. Since then, the number of large identifiable impact craters grew to hundreds and the number of Apollo objects, whose impact would have global implications, became thousands.

It then became obvious that the Earth as we know it is at serious risk. World authorities are slowly realising that the probability of similar impacts in the future are simply inevitable. Until recently, statistical analysis indicates a major impact every 10, years; with the last such event occurred 12, years ago possibly destroying Atlantis, directly or indirectly. However, inthis estimate was revised downward to a major collision every 1, years with the last impact having taken place around BCin the Indian Ocean, where an mile diameter crater has been discovered at a depth of 12, feet.

So far large impact craters e have been discovered all over our planet, many more are undiscovered having been destroyed over time by wind and water erosion or hidden by vegetation.

Ina crater with a diameter of 30km was discovered in the southern Egyptian desert.

However, the largest known impact crater is the Vredefort crater n South Africa with a diameter of km miles. The Hudson Bay feature has generated even greater interest since Richard Firestonea nuclear physicist together with Allen West and Simon Warwick-Smith published [ ] their claim that it was created around BC and had human witnesses who preserved their memory of it in their local folklore and that may have been responsible for the extermination of the Clovis people.

Kennett and Jon M. However, it must be noted that the Firestone hypothesis has encountered some criticism since the start of and must therefore be treated with due caution. This criticism appears to be gaining support according to a May report h. In JuneJames Kennett, son of Douglas Kennet mentioned above, was part of a team who announced further evidence of a major impact event 13, years ago extending from Pennsylvania and South Carolina as far as Syria m.

Dr Reinoud de Jonge has written a number of articles d that drew on petroglyphs in Brittany to support his contention that the Earth had an encounter with a cometary body in BC. In a recent book [ ] the renowned dendrochronologist, Mike Baillie, has outlined compelling evidence from his own discipline combined with ancient mythologies to support the idea of extraterrestrial impacts in early historical times.


May I suggest that the mythologies that possibly relate to multiple impacts are in fact recollections of a comet that had been visible for some time before breaking up under the gravitational influence of our planet prior to impact?

This idea was developed by Baillie in a subsequent book [ ] written with Patrick McCafferty that focused on Celtic mythological figures. Comets rather than asteroids are more likely to have contributed to the development of myths since an asteroid would not have been visible long enough for it to develop an identity that would be remembered in legend.

Britain The Key To World History

Graham Phillips has gone further and proposed [ ] that a close encounter with a comet in the middle of the 2 nd millennium BC triggered the development of monotheism at that time. An earlier paper p by Coimbra looks at the swastika as a specific example of a reflection of such an event. Mythologies, worldwide, offer evidence of these impacts and have been subsequently reinforced by classical writers who describe in non-scientific terms the effects of these extraterrestrial assaults.

The interpretation of ancient legends and myths is obviously a matter of subjective response, but the volume of such evidence is so great that the probability of a number of major impacts being within the memory of man, who relayed the experience down to us through the medium bdaumont tradition, is quite high. The fact that our Earth is continually at risk of a cosmic collision, the physical evidence of recent and past collisions, the recording of impacts on the Moon and Jupiter compounded with stories in ancient mythologies offer strong grounds for accepting the possibility of Atlantis being destroyed as a result of a collision with an extraterrestrial object as a credible working hypothesis.

There is little doubt beaukont cosmic collisions of all the possible natural catastrophes pose the greatest possible threat to life on earth.

There is an interesting website c that discusses both catastrophes and Atlantis. Another site e has a small collection of images of impact craters baumont seen from space.

Recent deliberate encounters with comets and asteroids have produced images and data that have raised questions about the traditional description of comets being composed of ice and rock.

The lines between asteroids and comets are becoming increasingly blurred and new definitions required r. The trend now is to see asteroids and comets as part of a continuum.

Evidence is emerging that the H 2 0 previously associated with comets may bewumont been OH radicals s. Although large asteroids or comets have caused and will again cause global catastrophes on a scale that we can only imagine, they are not the greatest potential threat to our existence. It is estimated that comtns galaxy, as in others, are also home to free-floating giant gas planets untethered to any star, which, if they wandered our way, could not only obliterate our planet but de-stabilise our solar system.

Comyns Beaumont | The Velikovsky Encyclopedia

Terry Westerman offers a fascinating overview of possible global impact sites on his fully illustrated website y. Fortunately, the death and destruction caused by comets is balanced by the probability that they are also the source of life on our planet. This idea is gaining greater acceptance with a further paper aa offering additional supportive evidence published in April Nevertheless, improved vigilance is required if we are to believe Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario, whose research in concluded ab that hazardous asteroids are comynns times more likely to hit Earth than previously thought!

Ireland according to James Bramwell [ Apart from that, Ireland was less bbeaumont was first suggested in the 18 th century as a possible location of Atlantis by the English geologist John Whitehurst. As a nation famed for its storytelling we have never let truth stand in the way of a good tale. The mythical Hy-Brasil was shown west of Ireland on maps as early as and incredibly, was not removed from naval charts until One may be excused for viewing this as a blatant case of exploitative opportunistic publishing.

Apart from being written in the rather turgid English of the period, there is not a single reference to Plato or Atlantis to be found in that volume.
