The Best Evidence I’ve Seen for the Existence of Atlantis

I was at and I ran across a fun article about “6 Insane Discoveries That Science Can’t Explain” and I found #5 especially interesting. This looks like the best evidence for Atlantis yet…
#5.The Antikythera Mechanism

The Mystery:

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient, intricate machine found in a shipwreck near Greece that dates back to about 100 BC. The Antikythera mechanism contains gears and structures that were not found in devices again for 1000 years, and only then when the Muslims and Chinese were busy inventing shit while the Europeans were busy killing each other.

Why Can’t They Solve It?

First, no one can agree on where the Antikythera mechanism was made or who designed it. Popular belief was that it was made by the Greeks due to its instructions all being in Greek (about a million of our tax dollars were probably spent arriving at that genius conclusion) but serious research published in serious places suggested the design came from Sicily.

And a billion parts with indecipherable instructions suggest it comes from Ikea. Ba-zing!

The mechanism, aside from placing you at serious risk for severing a finger, was supposedly used to figure out astronomical positions. The problem with that is that at the time this thing was made, no one had yet discovered laws of gravity or how heavenly bodies moved.

In other words, the Antikythera mechanism appears to have functions that no one alive at that time would have understood, and no single mechanical purpose of that era (such as navigating ships) explains the crazy number of functions and settings this machine has.

Our Guess: It’s a scrap from a time machine that exploded the moment it arrived in the past

    While I think that the time machine idea might be plausible, as well as the Atlantis Theory I believe I have a different Theory weather plausible or not. Based on the novel that Jules Verne wrote about the Nautilus and Captain Nemo it greatly resembles the device described as the navigational device used on the Nautilus by the captain. Perhaps there is more nonfiction in this science fictional fantasy than we once believed. There are many things that don’t make sense in this world however something that I do believe when my son asked me whether or not I believe in aliens because I believe in God, stands true here as well. God said that he created us in his own image, but he never said that we were the only ones he created! Having said that who’s to say that mr. Vern hadn’t had an experience with a greater civilization or contact with someone who had. Perhaps someone from Atlantis, perhaps someone from the future, or perhaps someone from the Nautilus!

    • If you haven’t read The Other Log of Phileas Fogg, you simply must! You would LOVE the world and plot. It an homage to Around the World in 80 Days, but with aliens 🙂
