Rand Flem-Ath

RAND FLEM-ATH is a 5 th generation Canadian living with his wife and co-author (ROSE FLEM-ATH) on the Pacific coast of Canada. In 1976, Rand discovered that an ancient map of Atlantis published in 1665 by the Jesuit priest, Athanasius Kircher, featured a remarkably accurate depiction of the sub-glacial contours of Antarctica (features unknown to the modern world until 1958). Convinced that Antarctica was Atlantis, Rand sought a climatic explanation for how people could have once lived on the now icy island continent. The answer came by reading the books of Professor Charles Hapgood with whom he corresponded about the theory of earth crust displacement from 1977 to 1982 (when Hapgood died). In 1981, Rand published in the scientific literature using the theory of earth crust displacement to explain the sudden global rise of agriculture around 9,600 B.C. (Plato’s date for the destruction of Atlantis). Rand then embarked upon a comprehensive study of world mythology using the resources of the Reading Room of the British Museum. Further research in archaeology, anthropology, geology, and the philosophy of science resulted in a trio of books, WHEN THE SKY FELL (with Rose), THE ATLANTIS BLUEPRINT (with Colin Wilson) and ATLANTIS BENEATH THE ICE (with Rose).

Rand has a Masters degree in Library Science from the University of British Columbia. He was the Senior Researcher for Business International UK, now a part of The Economist. The standard biographical reference work, Contemporary Authors writes that Rand is known for his “intense dedication and diverse research…” skills that Rand brings to his new 15 year study of the biblical story of Moses.

KILLING MOSES is a ground-breaking retelling of the story of Moses.

    Rand Flem-Ath: Atlantis Beneath the Ice

    RAND FLEM-ATH is a librarian and coauthor of The Atlantis Blueprint. He has appeared on the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, NBC, CBC, and the BBC as well as on numerous radio shows. ROSE FLEM-ATH is a novelist, nonfiction writer, and two-time winner of the prestigious Canada Arts Council Grant for fiction.

    • Reveals how the earth’s crust shifted in 9600 BCE, dragging Atlantis into the polar zone beneath miles of Antarctic ice

    • Examines ancient yet highly accurate maps, including the Piri Reis map of 1513, which reveals a pre-glacial Antarctica

    • Shows how myths of floods and disaster from around the world all point to a common source

    In this completely revised and expanded edition of When the Sky Fell, Rand and Rose Flem-Ath show that 12,000 years ago vast areas of Antarctica were free from ice and home to the kingdom of Atlantis, a proposition that also elegantly solves the mysteries of ice ages and mass extinctions, the simultaneous worldwide rise of agriculture, and the source of devastating prehistoric climate change. Expanding upon Charles Hapgood’s theory of earth crust displacement, which was championed by Albert Einstein, they examine ancient yet highly accurate world maps, including the Piri Reis map of 1513, and show how the earth’s crust shifted in 9600 BCE, dragging Atlantis into the polar zone where it now lies beneath miles of Antarctic ice. From the Cherokee, Haida, and Okanagan of North America to the earliest records of Egypt, Iran, Mexico, and Japan, they reveal that ancient myths of floods, lost island paradises, and visits from advanced godlike peoples from all corners of the globe all point to the same worldwide catastrophe that resulted in Atlantis’s demise.

    Chapter 1. An Unlaid Ghost

    The name Moses is so familiar that we’ve forgotten that the word held an unfamiliar and foreign ring to the ancient Hebrews. In the Egyptian language Moses meant son of. It was always, without exception, added to another name--usually that of a god such as Thoth or Ra. Although easily understanding a name like Ra-Moses, which would translate as son of the god Ra, the single name Moses would have been puzzling and would naturally elicit the question, “son of whom?” To Freud the name strongly indicated that Moses’ parents were Egyptian and not Hebrew. In Moses and Monotheism he wrote, “It might have been expected that one of the many authors who recognized Moses to be an Egyptian name would have drawn the conclusion, or at least considered the possibility, that the bearer of an Egyptian name was himself an Egyptian. In modern times we have no misgivings in drawing such conclusions . . . What hindered them from doing so can only be guessed at. Perhaps the awe of Biblical tradition was insuperable. Perhaps it seemed monstrous to imagine that the man Moses could have been anything other than a Hebrew.”

    The second chapter of Exodus reveals that Moses was born in Egypt during the reign of a tyrannical Pharaoh who planned to kill all first born Hebrew sons. Moses’ frantic mother managed to hide him for three months.

    Freud claimed that Moses’ true heritage had been deliberately suppressed by Jewish editors of the Bible who couldn’t stomach the idea of such an authoritative prophet not being born to a Jewish mother. He believed that exiled Jewish scholars had invented a more palatable legend during their captivity in Babylon where they had most certainly read the legend of Sargon and were inspired to adopt it for their own propaganda purposes. By a simple cut-and-paste job they conferred upon their hero a fully Hebrew birthright more fitting of the great prophet. In a second article for Imago, Freud took his idea much further, arguing not only that Moses was a full-blooded Egyptian but also, shockingly, that he was a follower of the Eighteenth Dynasty Pharaoh, Akhenaten (1375 BC-1358 BC) who introduced the world’s first religion based upon the idea of a single God.

    In 1819, Johann Goethe wrote “Israel in the Desert” partly as an attempt to show how later editors of the Bible had tampered with the story of Moses. At the time, many biblical scholars were busy trying to disentangle the various strands that composed the first five books of the Old Testament attributed to Moses and named The Torah (the Law) by the Jews. Goethe was disturbed by what he saw as the deliberate insertion of artificial laws into the text that only impeded the progress of the stories. He believed that the narrative of the heroic adventure had been bogged down by unnecessary, and unwelcome, depictions of religious ritual.30

    Goethe’s aesthetic convinced him that misleading words had been added to the scriptures. Like an art historian peeling away the layers of paint covering a lost masterpiece he revealed hidden seams and overlapping pigments that implied that there were different authors, some of whom were obsessed with religious ceremony. According to Goethe these late, bogus and unwelcome additions spoiled the natural flow of the stories.

    The same meddlesome writers had exaggerated critical timescales. Goethe considered the idea that a great prophet had wandered the desert for forty years with thousands of people in tow to be absurd. It called into question Moses’ fitness as a commander and painted him in a ridiculous light. Goethe concluded that the only explanation must be that the forty years was symbolic noting other instances in the Bible where the number forty was used symbolically. Remove the corruption of the text, especially the illegitimate timescale, Goethe reasoned, and Moses’ dignity would be restored, revealing the prophet of God as more of a hero and less of a buffoon.

    When there are no witnesses to a murder, detectives are trained to discover the guilty party by asking who had the “motive, means and opportunity” to commit the crime. There is only one character in the Moses story who fits this bill. The insights of Marlowe, Goethe, and Freud all provide clues to his identity and point to evidence of his ruthlessness.

    Marlowe gave us the ‘means,’ by which the murder was accomplished. He believed that Moses was an illusionist whose acts thrilled and baffled the children of Israel because they were naive in the ways of an Egyptian-trained Magician. These acts of illusion concealed the murder of the prophet and allowed an impostor to step into his place. Goethe believed that the story of Moses had been tampered with by scribes with a powerful agenda. Their late editing of the original spoken stories distorted the truth by inserting artificially long periods of time into the text. Removing these exaggerated periods of time reveals what was concealed. We take Goethe’s argument further. Once we remove the artificial timescales that were shoe-horned into the text by the manipulative editors it becomes apparent that our prime suspect had the perfect opportunity to murder Moses.

    Freud insisted that Moses was an Egyptian. Denying the Jews a genetic link to the greatest of their prophets was something he did with great reluctance, especially since his people were facing the Nazis in 1939, the year his book was released. The idea that there were two Moses was something many of the faithful found deeply disturbing.

    Unlike Freud we don’t believe that the death of the ‘first’ Moses resulted from a spontaneous murder. One man was powerfully motivated, possessed the skills of a magician, and had the opportunity to murder Moses. Our suspect is Moses’ father-in-law, Reuel, the man Goethe held in such esteem.

    Introduction to the New Edition

    It is good to see the word Atlantis prominently strutting its stuff in the title of this new and expanded edition of When the Sky Fell. This tarnished word has been maligned, misinterpreted, and tossed back and forth between timid suitors unsure whether to embrace or disdain it.

    The theory of earth crust displacement, which proposes that the earth’s outer shell catastrophically shifts over the planet’s subterranean layers, forms the scaffolding of our quest for the lost civilization of Atlantis. Professor Charles Hapgood developed the theory, and in this new edition we detail our fresh research gleaned from three weeks of study at Hapgood’s long-neglected Yale archives. We delve in to his correspondence with President Dwight D. Eisenhower and visit the president’s archives in Abilene, Kansas. These forgotten documents reveal how Christopher Columbus may have possessed a world map drawn by the survivors of Atlantis. Fragments of the map incorporate astronomical clues pointing to the date it was originally drafted, 3800 BCE, a date that coincides with the dawn of Egyptian civilization.

    We learn how Einstein urged that Hapgood be awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Grant because his earth crust displacement theory was “fascinating and important.”

    A rare, debilitating genetic disease common to the Haida of British Columbia, on Canada’s western coast, is shown also to be suffered by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt, suggesting that the two vastly separated peoples may have had a common ancestor.

    We follow the career of the seventeenth-century Jesuit priest Athanasius Kircher as he becomes the Einstein of his century and marvel at the lost Egyptian map of Atlantis that Kircher rediscovered.

    Evidence is uncovered that demonstrates that intricate, advanced water-management systems were developed in the highlands of New Guinea immediately after the fall of Atlantis.

    We reveal the existence of a shadowy cave where DNA samples taken from a young man’s remains point to the astonishing fact that he had traveled thousands of miles from the southern tip of South America to his death in Alaska. Nobody knows how or why.

    And we celebrate a new generation of Latin American archaeologists who have come to the radical conclusion that South America was populated before North America.

    Science is exploding, and the blast is providing more and more energy to drive the theory of earth crust displacement and the search for the lost continent.

    A lot has changed since 1981, when we quit our jobs in Canada and packed up a trunk with all our worldly belongings, enough money to survive for three months, and presented ourselves at that mecca for librarians everywhere, the Reading Room of London’s British Museum. Under its robin-egg-blue dome, shutting out the great city’s roar, we devoured book after book. Some of them, like Charles Lyell’s 1830 Principles of Geology or James Hutton’s 1795 Theory of the Earth with Proofs and Illustrations, could only be accessed from the Rare Book Room. Books that took months to receive back home were presented to us in the Reading Room within hours. Five years later, our London adventure resulted in plenty of raw material for our own contributions to the library.

    It’s no longer necessary for any writer to go to such lengths to find the intellectual spring of his or her subject matter. The Internet delivers any text we want to our eager eyes within seconds. Has to be a good thing, right? You’d think so. And for most of us it probably is. But don’t hold your breath thinking it will result in any paradigm-busting breakthroughs in the places where ideas are supposed to rule.

    The Internet offers a potential gold mine of knowledge, bringing together more material than any individual could possibly explore in a lifetime. But it’s not well known that the search engines used to access this wealth of information direct researchers primarily to articles that espouse the conventional streams of current thought. Good enough, perhaps, to access the latest trend in scientific pronouncements, but far less effective for challenging hallowed assumptions and developing alternative theories. In fact, contrary to expectations, between 1945 and 2005, as millions of scholarly articles went online, researchers increasingly began to cite fewer and fewer articles. Rather than expanding the parameters within their fields of research, online access has unexpectedly resulted in a troubling narrowing of science and scholarship.

    In contrast with how the Internet has narrowed the world of some researchers, it has also opened the door for Atlantis to shine again. Brushed up and polished to be presented to a new audience--whether skeptical or keen, inspired artist or naysayer, geographer or psychologist--Atlantis can step out and be judged in the light of a new age of information.

    The remnants of the lost continent surface in intriguing places. In this book we delve in to the records of people from around the globe who fled the rising ocean and scrambled to safety in the mountains where, in a bid to survive, they began the sophisticated task of domesticating native plants. This sudden, global rise of the finely tuned art and science of agriculture in the highlands starts mysteriously at the precise time that Atlantis fell, suggesting a forgotten past unexplored by traditional archaeology.

    The chronicle of Atlantis is properly called a legend, not a myth. A legend tells of events that took place in the real world at a specific time involving human beings. A myth, in contrast, is enacted on a supernatural stage where events are controlled by all-powerful gods and goddesses. Plato, the source of the Atlantis legend, tells us that the island continent perished at a specific time, some 11,600 years ago. He says that the vast island was located in a “real ocean” and was destroyed by earthquakes and floods of extraordinary violence. Gods don’t determine the unfolding events in this legend. Instead, it is the palpable forces of nature that prevail against Atlantis and end its rule. Atlantis is a legendary, but real, place that can be found.


    Atlantis in Antarctica

    Most rewarding for us, since 1995, the idea that Antarctica could have been the home of Atlantis has entered the popular imagination in unexpected ways and triggered the talents of many artists and writers.

    Clive Cussler gave us Atlantis Found in which James-Bond-like-superhero Dirk Pitt travels to Antarctica and fights neo-Nazi villains over the remains of Atlantis. Later, Cussler teamed with Paul Kemprecos to write Pole Shift, a novel that envisioned terrorists hell bent on artificially displacing the Earth’s crust. Stel Pavlou created Decipher. Richard Scott, a linguist, travels around the world cracking ancient hieroglyphs including those found in the city of Atlantis two miles beneath the ice of Antarctica. Thomas Greanias wrote Raising Atlantis in which astro-archaeologist Conrad Yeats and Vatican linguist Serena Serghetti survive their quest to find Atlantis in Antarctica. In 2007, a Kindle book by Jeremy Robinson, Antarktos Rising, imagined a present-day Earth crust displacement that frees Antarctica from the polar zone, revealing the formerly iced continent and awakening the long hibernating civilisation that lies beneath.

    On television, the long running science fiction series Stargate SG1 (1997–2007) and its spinoff Stargate Atlantis (2004–2009) both assume a close connection between Atlantis and Antarctica. On the big screen, AVP: Alien vs Predator (2004) and AVPR: Alien vs Predator – Requiem (2007) are both predicated upon the idea that Antarctica was once the site of an advanced civilisation. In 2009 a film predicated on the idea of an Earth crust displacement corresponding with the end of the Mayan calendar carries the provocative title, 2012.

    In music, Atlantis Blueprint, a rock band in Ontario is enjoying success. And in Australia the group When the Sky Fell is gathering fans.

    Tom Miller’s evocative painting of scientists retrieving artefacts from beneath Antarctica’s ice was inspired by When the Sky Fell and was featured on the cover of the US magazine Atlantis Rising.

    The authors invite you to visit the new, expanded and updated second edition of When the Sky Fell available as an eBook at www.flem-ath.com. Rand & Rose Flem-Ath continue the search and detail the breakthroughs in science over the past decade and include the compelling evidence that points to Lesser Antarctica as the site of the lost island continent of Atlantis.

    Greenland’s Puzzling Ice Sheet – It’s Not For Sale!

    Greenland’s massive ice sheet that lies outside the polar zone – in a temperate zone.

    It remains a central concept in geology.

    But geology texts usually don’t mention that Hutton was attempting to prove that our planet was created to provide a harmonious environment for humans.
    He was an ‘agnostic theist’. Someone who believed that the Earth was designed by God for humans. But he was skeptical about religious texts. The geology of the Earth, in Hutton’s view, held a far more accurate record of the past than the scriptures.

    He rejected catastrophic events (such as the biblical Deluge) as being the driving force behind geological change. Even though the prevailing notion held that Catastrophism – the Great Flood or Deluge of Genesis – could explain everything about the earth’s physical history.

    He argued instead, that the same environmental conditions, operating over the ages, had created all the lakes, crevices, mountains, deserts and jungles of the planet. His radical insight – for the era – was that given enough time – everyday forces, like rain, wind, and snow could be the non-supernatural powers behind profound geological effects.

    Hutton’s notion, that the Earth was much older than what the Bible presumed, was a central feature of the research tradition – eventually called ‘Uniformitarianism’ – that he created.

    However, as we’ll see, his tidy formula (‘the present is the key to past’) has a massive blind spot. It can’t explain the existence of a ‘most puzzling ice sheet’.

    In 1965, Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) launched the next great step in geology’s evolution by illustrating that Uniformitarianism was really two ideas masquerading as one. While Gould accepted the idea that universal physical laws are invariant, he rejected that the idea that all change was necessarily gradual.

    The insistence on only gradual change was, for Gould, the fatal flaw in uniformitarianism.

    By his time, the notion that the dinosaurs may have been destroyed in a catastrophic collision of an asteroid with our planet was widely accepted. Here was a theory that flew in the face of “the present is the key to the past” mantra, since it assumed abrupt change without invoking a supernatural source.

    Gould believed that catastrophic events could occur abruptly when unexpected dramatic physical forces such as the dinosaur/comet collision were unleashed.
    Which brings us to that most enigmatic of ice sheets.

    The next deepest part of the ice sheet is between 2,500 (1.55 miles) and 3,000 meters thick and appears in two locations. One surrounding the deepest (black) area and a second ice sheet to the south of it.

    This second ice sheet (inside the red circle) lies outside our current polar zone and receives an annual snowfall of less than 25 cm [9.84 inches] per year. (Lower map.)
    This places it solidly within a polar desert. A puzzle.

    Uniformitarianism and the present geological and climatic influences on the earth provide no key to this mystery.

    Charles Hapgood’s displacement theory does.

    Greenland has been encapsulated within the polar zone longer than any other part of the northern hemisphere.

    Hapgood’s breakthrough was the realization that ice ages grip the earth not because the polar zones expand – but because the earth’s crust/mantle shifts into those polar zones.

    Every map shows Greenland’s mysterious temperate zone ice sheet in a place it shouldn’t be – a polar desert.

    Today, this area of southern Greenland receives so little snowfall because the moisture generated over the Pacific Ocean, that would normally be carried to Greenland, has already fallen over Canada.

    By the time the moisture-laden clouds finally drift over southern Greenland, they contain little snowfall.

    These conditions have not been seen since.

    When the critical missing piece of the polar desert puzzle – earth crust/mantel displacement – is slid into place, the geologic mystery of the earth’s most enigmatic ice sheet is solved.


    The Atlantis Blueprint : Unlocking the Ancient Mysteries of a Long-lost Civilization

    A spellbinding blend of history and science, scholarship and speculation, this landmark work presents startling new evidence that traces archaeology's most enduring mysteries back to the lost civilization of Atlantis.

    The Great Pyramid. Stonehenge. Machu Picchu. For centuries, these and other sacred sites have inspired wonder among those who ponder their origins.

    Conventional science tells us they were constructed by local peoples working with the primitive tools of a fledgling civilization. But these megaliths nonetheless continue to attract pilgrims, scholars, and adventurers drawn by the possibility that their true spiritual and technological secrets remain hidden.

    Who could have built these elaborate monuments? How did they do it? And what were their incomprehensible efforts and sacrifices designed to accomplish?

    Now comes a revolutionary theory that connects these mysteries to reveal a hidden global pattern -- the ancient work of an advanced civilization whose warnings of planetary cataclysm now reverberate across one hundred millennia.

    International bestselling author Colin Wilson and Canadian researcher Rand Flem-Ath join forces to share startling evidence of a fiercely intelligent society dating back as much as 100,000 years -- one that sailed the oceans of the world, building monuments to preserve and communicate its remarkable wisdom.

    The Atlantis Blueprint is their term for a sophisticated network of connections between these sacred sites that they trace to Atlantis: a sophisticated maritime society that charted the globe from its home base in Antarctica . until it was obliterated by the devastating global changes it anticipated but could not escape.

    Here is adventure to realms beyond our imaginings . to shifting poles, changing latitudes . into the world of ancient mariners who recharted the globe . to astonishing discoveries about our ancestors. Here are the great mysteries . the incredibly complex geography of the Temple of Luxor . the startling sophistication of Egyptian science and math . and tantalizing similarities among the Hebrew, Greek, and Mayan alphabets to the Chinese lunar zodiac.

    The Atlantis Blueprint opens up a Pandora's box of ancient mysteries, lost worlds, and millennial riddles. It is a story as controversial, fascinating, dangerous -- and inspiring -- as any ever told.
