Danni Reches: Building Your Path In the Social Sciences
"We're going to be talking about how you got to where you are today in academic terms. So we've talked about So you're in Haifa Center for German and European Studies. You're doing a PhD on policy and perceptions of immigrants from the Middle East in. Europe. how did you get before talking about exactly what you working on? How did you get to the PHD? How was the whole academic journey for you? It all comes down to a big coincidence adds to the honest I. Didn't really know what I was getting into. When I signed up for BBC or or applied for position actually see what happened is data. I moved to from the Netherlands when from. partially to be able to go from the humanities. Faculty which I had had my Ian Levin's. To Straits ahead, go into political science, which is in social sciences. Different faculty in unknowns wasn't able to do that. Unless. Would have done a year in between to get some more courses than every year the University of Haiphong. Because I have taken some classes earlier recent conflicts, which also political science they allowed me to state go into get him. So that's one of the reasons that I moved here that I started doing that M. A. N. as I loved to science. I love the small programs with just a few students so that I could really choose my own self aches that have tonight. So when I wrote my master's thesis. Supervisor said I'm not only in political science departments also a part of the sense of Germany abuse. Studies. And we are you, we opened up two positions for his suits with a scholarship. maybe you WANNA consider applying for us because my master's thesis was about the refugee crisis in Europe. So you're being center that was something interesting. So. I was like, well, you know I like what I'm doing I like the writing of first ongoing on the gap here in Salia and from there alright the application. Which I did from the Wifi at McDonald's. In, Australia was as a backpacker. I applied for the Specie position. After having spoken to. Supervisor Miami was over with. With that. Center. and. Then eventually I got the news was still in Australia that I've gotten that I got the position and that when I was be back in this is something I was starts. Would Abuse De was How much effort at time and? A lifestyle is just a position was not clear to me and I had to learn a lot along the way. I am very happy to be hosting bolts costs what to do with Dad's. Because I get to listen to others. To hear a how they've been dealing with things and I'm also happy like you said before I confess that on people who are just starting now you mentioned something that I found really interesting and I didn't do that. I didn't think it was something possible. I didn't. It didn't arise in my mind you talked about taking a gap year. I'd like to talk about that and. Yet to talk about how you took that decision, how easy was it to take it and how you organize to be able to go backpacking in Australia that how Atlantis? Well. It's always been something on my mind right Australia as child's. To seeking room for real. To See all these amazing places where there's desert big cities. At. But also the tropics and everything in between. was. Something that was always on my mind and I learn about this program way to go on a working holiday visa. which that people with my nationality? Is Fairly, easily apply just go online you a little bit of money and then within twenty four hours I got the email zero mine visa. To go to. For one year allowing you to work so that you could also finance your said there. and I knew that this was only possible until the age of certain. Now, not necessarily tell you how old I am now but I'm eating it. At some point you know before thirty, this is my goal in life is to make it to the and. This was the right time in my life because I just finished Ma I. Wasn't sure yet. What was GONNA do exactly with bats whether I was GONNA look for a job. He is railway move to or if I was GONNA find a job in Europe Netherlands or any other. Country which is an option. Or. Continue studying because I. got this idea for my. Evasive advisor, Ovadia about the Beastie. So this was a good time for me to go about and think about it in a different setting and my everything together for quite a while already. Also got really lucky as an Israeli to death that same visa that he at applies for from. Yeah it was really a dick out of the lottery. And then. You know.

"He knows at least a little bit about sports, but the fact that this came in the movie and not in the book, that's where you're like Oh. Okay. Someone wanted to make this extra connection between Bobby head and I think Ted. Also just has this sort of ability to know things and feel things like bobby does so I don't think he was necessarily with bobbies dad. I think he just sort of knows how bobbies dad felt either because of how he knows that the dad bobby the story or something, but you really get the sense that Tej knows a bunch of things he should really know. Yeah. And I was I was because he does tell bobby that he was at that game. But you you're right. You wonder like, was he really there or is this just psychic? Ted. Yeah. You really just don't. Fully know what Ted's capable of knowing either because he obviously can be very observant at times like when. Bobby's mom. Liz comes back from her quote unquote business trip. You can visibly see that something happened to her, maybe the kids won't know exactly what it is, but Ted is smart enough to put two and two together. You know he's been around for quite some time. He knows what happened in that hotel room and you're kind of like, okay. Is that just because of how she looks or is it because he just knows these things? Yeah. No, it ended. It's he he. Will he also, he did like you're saying he did the same thing with them, Doolan. And you know he kind of pulled him. You know right up to and it's like you don't want people to know that when no one's around you. You know dress up in your MOMS, close That he had to. You know that's definitely like some kype, a psychic connection. You're not making any guesses there. Yeah. He's not a peeping tom or anything like that. Right. So I definitely think that they were playing in those in those areas they're playing on Ted's Psychic perception, his God. But was it. What was the? What's the actual word for it in in the Gunslinger Dark Tower How I should know this? I host the Stephen. King Podcast, I should have S. Can't remember I. Don't I don't have written down either said on my notes, it's like a reader or something whatever teddy breaker breaker. Thank you. Thank, Google. So. Yeah. I definitely think that they were showing off You. Know. Ted's. Break your skills. Yeah. And you get the whole Loman situation too because you see these guys in suits going around and you see bobby getting paranoid because he saw like a fedora in A. Car, and then he started seeing these signs or not signs. But you know these papers posted all around town like as if someone had lost a dog and it's like, have you seen Ted brought again at the end and you really get sort of this tinfoil. To, some of Stephen King Stories to which I really enjoy, and you think this paranoid. But then you're like oh wait, these guys are actually real. So while you kind of get conspiracy theory side of things, it's also something that is actually happening. It's again kind of like Charlie and fire-starter where they have the shop chasing after her and I think king does a very nice job of creating these entities that go. Go after these unique people and it's not necessarily the shop every time, but he makes it very entertaining. Yeah. You know going into the movie. One of the things I was maybe kind of concerned about was the portrayal of the low men because in the book, it goes into lot more detail when there's the final confrontation and they are these very strange I would say bordering on cartoonish characters, you know they. The Way Bobby describes it the the cars like really seem almost alive pulsating and things like that and I, and I were read You know once we get there especially in this like very. Other than the psychic elements is very grounded, realistic, Young Kid coming of age movie. If all of a sudden, there's these like monster cars. You know with some bad CGI that was really going to you know take the thing down. But I. I liked that changes. Well, Kinda just made them these shadowy background figures. You never even saw their full faces or a conversation in person bobby talked one of them on the phone you know. So it was all very disconnected and you just kind of new that they were this. Some kind of shadow agency. Yeah and I. Kind of liked that a little better because when he goes a little too weird with things like in the Tommy knockers, which is by far by least favorite thing I've read of his so far. It was one of those things where I kind of enjoy entities like the shop and like the Loman, as they are portrayed in this movie, a little more than something more cartoonish or alien like and. There's a lot to sort of. pull apart from just the Lohman story because if I'm not mistaken at is the longest story from the collection. You know I, think it was over two hundred pages long. It might barely be considered a novella. But you're left kind of wondering. Okay. How would they have portrayed these other stories? Obviously, the title story hearts in Atlantis would have been easier one because it was just you know this kind of college movie and a little bit of that coming of age elements still because in college. That's when people really start to figure out who they are before they go into like true adulthood. So to speak and I think it's just..

"Everyone chat cemetery is back as is Dan Poland. Today, we are talking about the hearts in Atlantis movie from two thousand one, which ironically the same year that Anthony? Hopkins was in Hannibal, and these are two very, very different movies if you ask me. Are you doing? Yeah, it's going to be back. Yeah, I'm glad you signed up for both of these because it gives us the chance to go through and be like, okay. What was like the story and what was different, and in this instance you know hearts in Atlanta's, we talked about how the five stories were interconnected. But this movie really only touches on two of the stories and it doesn't even touch on the title story of hearts in Atlantis. Though that was Kinda funny. Yeah. Well, it's focused on our favorite parts of book which were the the kind of coming of age story around the kids. But I thought I thought it was interesting. You know we a little bit about the book being King's statement about his generation and the struggles they went through and stuff. All of that's gone like all. You know this, there's nothing here. This is straight up to story of kids can a growing up in a neighborhood in a little? Episode in their life. That's it. It really felt like they were trying to get that stand by me feel and replicate everything that happened in the body and that adaptation because those movies tend to play. So well, I, love watching coming of age movies even though I have gone far beyond coming of age time. Of course, it's just one of those genres that really resonates with people for one reason or another whether it's because they can relate or maybe they're a little more like me where I didn't have as much freedom as a kid. So I watch things like stranger things and I'm like Oh. Man I wish I could do. Yeah. Yes stranger things. I, watch because that like that was my. Childhood like those those look back at those kids, I was born in Nineteen, seventy seven. So like eighties was prime kid time for me. It was on my bike and you know having a not adventures that were as good as those kids, but you know little adventures. But yeah, you're you're absolutely right with the comparison to stand by me. It's hard not to you know it's it's Stephen, King. It's coming of age. It's the sixties It's kind of like it would be like not comparing Shashank in the Green Mile, right because you know president movies. Bright. Stephen King does something different and yeah, you're gonNA can a latch onto that and I don't know about you. I mean I, I liked this movie. Definitely, it not hold up if you compare it to stand by me right and I want to quickly run through the cast because you have. Anthony Hopkins obviously as the big name, but then you have David. Moores. Older bobby returning after doing the Green Mile, and it's always fun to me to see who returns to Stephen King Properties especially. So soon, because the Green Mile closed out the nineties as far as Stephen King adaptations go, and then this basically kicks off the two thousands because it's two thousand one and the only thing he had that came out in two thousand was the plan, which is an online story that you can read. It's two giant PDF's, and it seems like it's one of those things not everyone knows about, but the big Stephen King fans will know about. You really just get a sense that they wanted to hit big with this, and maybe didn't work quite as well. But having Anthony Hopkins at the height of the Hannibal series. You know that seems like a good bet, and then you have a young Anton, Yeltsin, who unfortunately has since passed away in a freak accident basically, and just to see his performance as a child I didn't even know he was a child actor. Really. I. Thought. He started getting more roles in his twenties and I was like Oh. Wow, that is him and he plays I'll be Garfield. So. You have these characters who interact so much with each other that you're really hoping the chemistry is perfect with the two of them and I think that came across pretty well because it wasn't like Anthony Hopkins felt creepy towards Hito, Anton, Jenner anything throughout this and given everything we've been hearing about Hollywood, lately, you're kind like Oh. Thank goodness. I definitely think there were elements of the cast that really worked I thought Anthony Hopkins and Anton. Yeltsin were perfect. I liked Meka born I think rim forum. Yeah. As Carol thought she, she played really well, is funny. I thought she. Played Carol. Really well, but I didn't feel really great connection between the characters of Bobby and Carol Yeah Yeah. So I thought she was great as Carol. But as far as the chemistry of the characters together and then I don't even know who who played solely. He's somewhere down on this list. Well, Rothe are I believe. Yeah and I. Just I felt his character wasn't. Developed. Not. He didn't seem like the big goof that he was in the story and really. Your banking on Anthony. Hopkins. In this I think is what the movie really wanted to do, and you have hope Davis as Garfield who is good. But we don't see her quite as much I feel like as we do in the story since she spends a good chunk of the movie gone on her business trip and we get that brief Hor horrific scene in the hotel room, and they don't need us to see everything to know exactly what happened and we see how she looks when she returns. So they leave a lot of that unspoken. But you know that Ted knows what happened because he even brings it up a little, and then you also have the fun appearance by Alan to Dick. The car guy, and it was just so fun to see him because that's kind of the perfect role for him. He's really this funny guy, and he was funny. He was also sort of this angry guy wants the kids started beating him at the game and. Bobby was just like I just knew. So you get this. Stephen, king situation that comes up. So often with children is that they have powers. And you get a sense that bobby and Ted. Have this unique connection and granted his powers aren't something like Charlie from fire starter or even carries powers. But you get a sense. There's something special about him, kind of like Danny and the shining. Yeah. I agree with you especially on the Allen Terrific, I thought that was a great. A great seen a great casting. I mean Hope Davis for me was was great. She's always great. I made this have a a choice, but I thought she was a little softer in this. In the book you know what I mean, but I don't think it was bad. I think her character still worked. She was still kind of Stern and standoffish enough and things like that. That you you got that tension between her and bobby. But it was it was that was one of the characters that was a little bit different story. Wise. There were quite a few different things too because if I'm not mistaken carroll wasn't dead because her and bobby meet up and she gives them the glove. So at the beginning of the movie when you see David Morris as this is Bob e and he's going to sully his funeral, he asked about. Carol. And the guy is like, Oh, you didn't hear. She's dead too. You know. He's a little more delicate about it. But it was one of those things where I was like, Oh, they're hitting us with this big change. Right off the bat. And at the end, instead he meets her daughter in her. So you still get that and if I'm not mistaken, the daughter was played by the girl who plays Carol? Yes. Yeah. I earned initially I, thought it was gonna be like a Bayton switch because in the. In the book she is You know she says she's not care. She says she somebody else and she has this whole different life. So I was like, okay. Maybe Carol shows up. But yeah, there was there was a lot of changes. You know that's that's another one of those elements that I think maybe this movie. Had too many too many things going for it..
The Yearning for the Unexplained
"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans. I mean certainly loch ness monster is a you know a denizen of of Scott, London, and the UK certainly loves Nessie, but I do think it is a by-in-large, a function of a kind of modern industrial age culture that has kind of tap out the world prior to. I Dunno, the you know seventeenth eighteenth century there were still literal monsters. There were still things that were unexplained. There were still hearts of the globe that that Western nations hadn't experienced a reached or whatever, and so you could still believe that there were strange things out there.

When a myth becomes a mystery
"Owls Welcome to kids Miss Mysteries! I'm your host kid crumb today. When a myth becomes mystery for today's Podcast, I decided to begin with the definition of terms I started with myth I went to my webster dictionary and came away with the following a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people, explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings events, next I locked up mystery something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain I needed a local place or event that fit both definitions and had more from myth to mystery, and decided on Mount, Shasta California Shasta a dorm volcano located at the southern end of the cascade range in Siskiyou. County. California is has erupted approximately. Approximately every eight hundred years for the past ten thousand years and vulcanologists will tell you it is overdue. It has seven glaciers, three small glaciers on the southern flank for the larger ones are located on the north and east flanks for those who live next to the volcano, especially on the north side in the Lake Shasta area remnant from the last eruption are easily visible, ranging from lava tubes amounts left by cry, pyroclastic flows Labra Shasta is an incredible site and occupies the lands of four native American tribes. The earliest myth was that the great spirit Scowl came down from the heavens and fought with the spirit of mountain. Ussamma known today as Crater Lake. Indeed this is how the ancient. Ancient people of the area explained volcanic activity for years. It was believed that Shasta contain sacred healing waters during the eighteen eighties, teenage psychic rhetoric Spencer Oliver who lived in the nearby town of White. Rica wrote a book a dweller on two planets. It was published by his mother in nineteen five six years after his death. It was among the pages of that book. That young Oliver, mentioned the many tunnels and chambers in and Beneath Shasta some will tell you that the publication of dweller onto planets was went. Myth turned to mystery for Mount, Shasta, remember now that myth is a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people or explaining some natural, a social phenomenon, typically involving supernatural. Supernatural beings or events and mystery is something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain tunnels and chambers below Shasta is certainly hard to explain it and qualify as a mystery but Oliver, and perhaps hundreds of other authors claim that these chambers are occupied by the survivors of Atlantis still others describe Americans remnants of a lost civilization as the occupants who occasionally wander into the town of Shasta city to trade gold for supplies. Any locals of the area described little men from Shasta that only come out at night, wandering the surrounding woods collected herbal edibles Shasta has been variously described as a doorway to another dimension.

"I just quickly want to say I'm not really sure why. This is a collection because. It involves all the same characters, so it's kind of just a funky format for a book in my opinion, but. The WIKKI says it's a collection, so were just going to roll with that but Dan. How are you doing today? Pretty good? How are you doing not bad I think I enjoyed this book low more than I expected because. I don't really hear. It talked about all too often. I tend to hear more about the movie adaptation and I think a lot of that will probably has to do with the fact that Anthony Hopkins in it. You know he's kind of a big name. Yet right? Yup Yup. Yeah and that that's kind of my impression when we talked about getting together and Doing some king stuff you know. I had not really heard great things about hearts in Atlantis and maybe maybe i. just heard things from the wrong people I don't know. I yeah! I liked it a lot more than I thought I was going to. Yeah was one of those things where I was like? Oh. I was expecting this to be. You know somewhat along the lines of maybe the Tommy knockers which I do not like all. It's like the only book of Kings I've read that I've actively disliked and hearts in Atlantis. I was like okay. It takes place. It's kind of Vietnam War era. US history was not my strong suit in schools I was like. How much am I going to like this, but the way that it's presented is. So different from a lot of the other stuff that he's done, and there have been instances where he writes something like Salems Lot, and then he follows it up with a story like Jerusalem's Lot later on in a collection and okay, you get a sense that he does ten. Just keep writing stories and who knows. When he wrote all of these stories, he could have read his. You know at totally different times, and then brought them together for the collection, which tends to be what happens, but because these are related. It's kind of like Oh actually know how this one was done. Right. I guess I didn't write that down. One of them was released fryer. As a short story, a its own short story I think it was. The one. I, think it was blind Willie, if I'm not mistaken and it was, it was different though I didn't go and find the original version, but it had a lot. It didn't have that interconnected element. It was it didn't have the call backs to different elements of low Manolo Coats, and things like that so. So. Yeah, I think you're probably right in the you know. These were written. At different times and and kind of. Pulled together rather than being. It is. It's a weird thing since it's not totally cohesive, but there's threads that run through every story. Yeah, and you are right. It was blind Willie that one was published in ninety seven before this ninety nine collection came out, so that is something that I clearly didn't catch. Up So. Thank you for that. But why don't we just go ahead and run through these in order because I think low men in yellow coats is definitely the. Longest of them and get so much backstory on these characters who are going to come back throughout the other four stories and you know Bobby Garfield. Sully and Carol Gerber are. You know sort of the. Three, musketeers, if you will. They're kind of always hanging out always doing stuff. Bobby and Carol are kind of dating in that. You know pre highschool kind of way and. You really just get a sense of who these kids are. And you have no idea what they're going to be like. When they grow up, because this is very much a story rooted in sort of that coming of age era that Stephen King really loves to write about, and does such a good job with writing those stories to where you're like okay. Is this going to be something along the lines of? The body or something like that because you're like okay, we have these three best friends, and then this kind of weird old Guy Ted comes around and starts talking to bobby a lot because they're practically. NEIGHBORS BELIEVE TED is on the floor above them or something Yeah third-floor. He's I and bobbies very much sort of a latchkey kid, too, because his mom is. Is always working he. She's a single mom and you just get a sense that this took place in a very very different time. You know there might be some latchkey kid stole around today, but they seem to be few, and far between just because parents tend to be more protective and aren't as just sort of freewheeling as they were in the sixties. Yeah and this is definitely is. You know you mentioned the body. This is definitely a community bauge story in a story about community college in the sixties. Yeah, you know. You mentioned his mom being single mother would. Wasn't. I wasn't totally income, but that's not the picture that you you get the sixties right? You get this very American dream kind of family vibe from the sixties Yup on a personal level This story takes place in Connecticut. I'm from Connecticut this. That's always really cool, so there's a lot of little mentions in here, rich poor and out guide now. I can't remember the Savak. Rock things like that? That so I always love when stories are told about the area that you grew up in get those little nods, so was fun. Yeah, and with King. Sometimes they'll blend, and the is real cities with these fictional cities, which is something. He does a lot in Maine. Because there is no jerry, there is no castle rock, but then he'll mention cities that actually exist in especially something like Portland, being an obvious. But you just get a sense. That king really understands how important it is to sort of blend the real with his fiction right because of the town of Harwich in which the story takes, place is fictional, but there's so many elements the reflect the actual towns in that area You know the old movie theaters and the you know the way the cops would walker beats and all this other stuff you. You remember back to win. Times are like that. Yeah! That's something I love about his storytelling and. To kind of take a look at the title with low men in yellow coats, that phrase comes about when Ted comes to town, and he is from the low men, but it's also appeared in the dark tower series. So you have this running theme of okay. Maybe Ted has something to do with. What's going on in the dark tower world? And then you aren't really too sure what is going on because king will drop in these dark tower references, and as someone who hasn't made my way through the entire dark tower series sometimes I'm just like Oh okay. Right and I actually I've never read. Of the dark tower series so. Love Mindy Yellow Coats. Is it a weird introduction to that series for me? Yeah, but that didn't really affect anything. You know who's enough to follow, and even though you like, Ted was talking about things, like CAA which I guess is like a big element of that world and stuff. It wasn't like it was so esoteric that I couldn't follow it in order to be. Yeah, and it's just one of those things where you're like. He is always dropping something whether it's a nod back to one of the other towns in Maine or something like that, and you have to assume that king has visited Connecticut, or it's enough like Maine to where he religious understands what these towns were like especially in the sixties because he was around, I was not. So I'm going to take his word for it. Little little before my time, too yeah, this is this is like my parents. Time my parents were born in. Nineteen fifty. Seven. Right, so they would have been a few years younger than the main character Bobby Garfield here, but it. It very much reminded me of you. Know what my parents or my aunts and uncles would talk about when when they were growing..

"Today. We're discussing warning signs starring Sam Waterston. Kathleen Quinlan my Italian cousin Koto. Jeffrey Demon directed by HAL bar. Would this is Arnie? From Quarantine and Stewart and this is the CO host feels rage beautiful rage Jacob. Yes folks I am in Quarantine. I've actually broken quarantine. I have not left my bedroom in eight days. I have broken quarantine to come to the recording studio so we could record about plague and I'm glad to hear that you're up. You sound pretty good. It sounds like things are going. Well Yeah this is not a joke or a bit people. Yeah Yeah you're awfully chipper about it but just to put it in perspective. You seem to be dealing with it well and we're glad about that. We usually record on Wednesdays. I came down with it on the Thursday after recording. I had like six days of hell and I'm back for this feeling my best. I haven't gotten the results of the coverted test back. I did get one of the coveted Cova tests. They did take a cotton swab and stick and so for up my nose. I think they swabbed my frontal lobe. I don't think I have cove it. I got a flu or something. I don't think I'm sick enough for coveted. But in an abundance of caution yes our local respiratory clinic has ordered me into isolation for two weeks but yes. I felt like if there's a movie that I should break quarantine to discuss. Its warning sign in our viral outbreak series. Yeah because they break a whole lot of rules in this film Yes. The nineteen eighties is a huge decade. For pandemic you know the AIDS crisis explodes. I wanted to cover one of those films. But they weren't made in the one thousand nine hundred. Eighty s yeah. They all came out in the nineties. Right they did. I mean let's just call it. What it is. You couldn't be gay on screen in the nineteen eighties. It was this big taboo and if they dealt with AIDS. It was usually like an very sensitive. Tv movie like an Early Frost or like an indie film. Like one of Steve buscemi's early parting glances and none of them talked about it as an epidemic. They were just stories about gay life and one of the characters would be infected with HIV can see. I remember the one aides. Tv movie. I think from the eighties that I remember. It wasn't even about gay life. It was about a got it from a blood transfusion. Oh yeah they didn't even want to address that Ryan White. He was a hemophiliac definitely. Did try to push that narrative and that story and one of the lessons we can learn about pandemic is until it touches everybody. It's very easy to marginalize or at least a celebrity. That's when Reagan notice when his buddy rock Hudson died of HIV. That's when he's like. Oh maybe we should use some government money to research this. Yes it took. I think seven years from becoming does outbreak in San Francisco. Bath houses to being something that the president would talk about. But my dad was there. Here's the weird thing about my life I knew about. Std's before I knew about sex. My Dad led the Public Health Department on Sexually Transmitted Diseases. One of my earliest memories was that he had this shirt that said stamp out sex in really big letters and then in tiny letters at ped- dash usually transmitted diseases and he walked around the mall and people would point. I wanted to just crawl under awry. They just think it was like he's anti-sex because that's what it sounds like. He was so funny to get those reactions but he was there and he'd come home from work and he's looked yes. I'm going to all the gay bars. Were doing all this outreach. Because of this grid this gay cancer as it was described in the early eighties and eventually became known as eights. And if you want to see a movie around this time that was about it. I think you'd have to look at like fatal attraction. I actually think the whole erotic thriller genre is really a Metaphor about AIDS. Like the idea that if you step out on your wife or you do anything. Outside of your monogamous relationship is going to kill you like many cases. It's just a bitch with a knife but she's eight that's what it is. I never thought about it that but I do like those movies and I did think those movies more than AIDS kept men celebrate. Yeah and if you want to see a movie about the AIDS pandemic one of the earliest made. It was an. Hbo Movie in the Early Nineties was based on a book by randy shells and the band played on the movies kind of me but he's got a lot of celebrities in a lot of recognizable faces and it does a good job of at least telling you the history about how it all unfolded and what it was like. During that time when AIDS equal death there were no drugs. There was no hope and many people felt like it was in times. I really liked that movie. When we get to the review of contagion what contagion reminded me. Most of is in the band played on down. But let's talk about a different kind of outbreak. Yeah I'm surprised out of all the eighties. This is the outbreak movie that you picked Zombie Movie. Yeah I mean what? What else is there? I was looking at least this is a movie about does deal with an actual virus was being discussed. Here is real. I don't know if it's accurate to all the symptoms that you can acquire from it but Borna is an infectious disease that did break out in a little German town and we can discuss it so it had some validity that was the criteria. Oh so that part's real. Yes I had no idea that people ever died and came back. That's really happening. I'm not seeing. The screen is an accurate representation. What I'm saying is I looked for an outbreak movie that had some scientific backing and this writer director was very proud to say he did his research and he wanted this to be as real as possible. Who's even behind that like? Did this come out in theaters. I've never heard of warning sign and I saw it a lot. It was always on cable. I think what happened was this is a first time director. It was someone that had worked a lot with Lucas and Spielberg. He was a ghost rider on close encounters and script doctor and work on return of the Jedi behind the scenes. And what have you? And he was finally getting. His first and his last movie Bar would would never direct again but he wrote the script for Sugarland Express and he just knew the right people. I look this guy up. I've seen a ton of his work. Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures Indiana Jones in his infernal machine. I played all of those. Yeah on the commentary of this Blu Ray that I had. He basically said that he knew even while he was finishing. This movie. Directing wasn't for him he was getting into this whole video game craze. That was happening and that is where he put all of his energy but at the time he thought he would want to try his hand behind the camera after writing so many scripts his thought was. I've written scripts on the cheap. So much can it be that hard to write movies on the cheap so much. The answer is yes. This movie struggled for budget. Fox was very frugal about wanting to give this movie. Anything at the end. I guess it was a big battle with the producers and the studio to studio punishment was. We're going to put you out at the end of summer. August released not good the week after return of the living dead. So you know like if people even wanted to see Zombie movie the much better Zombie Film. They're not going to go to warning sign. This didn't even crack the top twenty disappeared. A blip you wouldn't have known it happened but it was always on cable and I just always saw pieces of it and I wanted to connect to again. I can't say I was excited but I wanted to connect the images in my mind and what they were talking about. It reminded me a lot of andromeda strain that pace the tone the kind of characters that were in it. It felt much more SCIENC- than your average Zombie movie.

Ancient Artifacts on the Beaches of Northern Europe
"Now speak with Andrew Curry a freelance journalist based in Berlin. His new article in science explores hidden treasures that have surfaced on the coast of the Netherlands. They include such things as neanderthal tools. A willy mammoth tooth and human remains from thousands of years ago. These remarkable fines lending significant insight into the ecological and anthropological history of the region. Hi Andrew All right. The story highlights a variety of people from a nurse to university professors who were studying the samples from vastly different perspectives. Generally speaking who were the scientists involved in the research so it's kind of an incredible array of different disciplines that are being brought to bear on the same questioner region there geneticists archaeologists geographers people who specialize in underwater mapping. And then. There's also one of the things that really interested me in a story. There's a big contribution being made by amateurs interested in the fines and spend time just looking for the stuff on each where it washes up right so these things are just washing up on shore. What are some of the most compelling fines that have been dredged up so some of the most compelling fines are stone and bone tools and human remains that date back seven thousand or more years ago some of which goes all the way back to fifty thousand years when the the area was populated by neanderthals? They're also finding animal remains. They found Bama's skulls all kinds of things that date back to a time when the shore off the Netherlands and the UK in the North Sea was actually above water. So how are these finds turning up on the beach in the first place? It used to be that these finds would turn up in fishing nets and sort of at random but in the last few years as the Netherlands has really focused on coastal reclamation and protecting their coast against sea level rise. They've been dredging sand and gravel offshore and bringing it and dumping it on the beach and in those massive hundreds of thousands of tons of sand and gravel that they've brought in from offshore there are bones stone tools human remains that slowly then get uncovered by the waves and they're amateurs who go out to the beach every day almost and just look for the stuff as it as it comes out of the sand. Pick it up. Send pictures of it to archaeologists then identify it and they work together to analysts. Awesome and like you said. These fines are eating found by all these different types of people. Could you outline some of the techniques being used to analyze the fines? There's actually geneticists who are scraping DNA straight off the sea floor and showing what kind of plants and animals live there when it was terrestrial land. The fines are one aspect of the whole effort. Devoted to trying to figure out what the landscape under the North Sea looked like before the last ice age ended and flooded the area so at one point there was an area three or four times bigger than Modern Day Holland. That was all above ground. There were forests there were rivers and it was probably heavily populated. Sounds pretty beautiful actually. Yeah what kind of DNA is being analyzed. So geneticists are using ancient DNA techniques to look at both the soil to get DNA from there and also analyzing human remains. The collectors have found on the beach. That are actually really well preserved because of the cold and wet at the bottom of the sea to get whole human genomes and you can then look at the ancient. Dna from these populations that lived in an area that is now underwater very cool. There's a specific item that surface that holds huge significance. And that's the landscape of the area being studied. What are some of the most important lessons learned about the landscape of this submerged region? I mean part of it is just that it's cool to go is one of the researchers. I talked to said. They're getting maps of a country that you can't visit so there's this massive landscape that was once above water and they're testing out all these different ways to look at it could also be applied to other coastal regions. That were once habitable. That were once passages to new lands like the landscape between Alaska and Asia for example Barron. Jia they call it yeah and look at how you know how these areas worked for human migration how humankind spread around the world. There are these key gaps in our knowledge because the sea levels today are thirty meters higher than they were twenty five thousand years ago right and you mentioned these maps that they're able to make out of information being collected and one of the sources of that information are these energy companies. Could you explain how these energy companies are contributing to the data collection? And what that data help discover sure. It's been a really interesting and sort of inspirational collaboration. Between scientists and industry in the North Sea is a is a tremendously important commercial area for shipping. And then there's a lot of wind farms oil. Well gas well drilling and so companies went out and did these seismic surveys to see what was deep under the ground. And for the archaeologists it was a very top level. That wasn't maybe commercially. Valuable but tremendously valuable. In terms of the knowledge it contains about the landscapes so they worked with the companies to get that data. And then we're able to start. These maps based on seismic survey data. There's also been some interesting collaboration. Between companies that dredged gravel for construction use and then led archaeologists have access to the stones and dirt that are dragged up from the bottom of the sea which was once land these maps and some of this information really revealing what humans were like thousands of years ago what civilization was like before this landscape changed. So what did this region? What does this research teach us about human history? The very end of this landscape was populated by modern humans. Just like you and me who were hunter gatherers. At first they were in a landscape that was probably a lot like the most fertile parts of England were Hollander Belgium today and then slowly over a couple of hundred years. Some of the research has revealed that as the water levels rose it transformed into more of estuary wetland area but people kept living there and they managed to adapt and change their lifestyle to the rising seas which I guess goes to show you. The climate change is an old story of course that that begs the question right. This begs the question of sea level. Rise impacted these civilizations and we can see it. Is that going to tell us? About our present. On the one hand they managed to deal with a certain level of sea level rise and then there came a point about seven thousand years ago when there were a series of nominees and the landscape completely disappeared. It was rendered uninhabitable su-nam as that's That's pretty familiar. Actually yeah I mean for a while. Archaeologists were reluctant to get into this one expert. Told me because they didn't want to be seen as digging after chasing after lost continents or Atlantis or something like that. But as the techniques have gotten more and more advanced it turns out that they can do some really scientific
Middle Earth Minute: The Numenoreans
"I'm going to be talking about. The Newman orients the new minorities. Were that race of men. If you remember in the movie airborne was a new minority in. They had a long life and they got their start. After the downfall of more goth sirens master Saharan fled but the gods the allies what they're called rewarded the men a group of men for helping in the defeat of Serotonin more goth and gave him this island. I king of the Newman orients was l Ross. And he had a brother named L. Ronde as we know from the movies they were half Elven so they could pick either the immortality of the elves or the mortality of the men so l. Ross chose to be one of the men but also the land that they got from the valor. They also gave them long life as we know in the movie airborne was seventy six seventy eight. I think if I remember correctly so they gave these men. The Newman orients extended life. They typically lived around four hundred years of age sometimes a little longer later on. They didn't live quite as long. But we'll get that in the later on this island really good. They loved the valor on the Gods and everything good but slowly but surely they started to decline. They wanted not only a long life. They wanted immortality like the elves became jealous of the elves and wanted immortality. They were told that they can never visit the West. If you remember in the movies the end Bilbo and Frodo and Gandalf and some of the others went on a ship and went to the West. They went to this place called the undying land. The deal the valor made with the new minorities was that you can have long life but you can never go to. The undying land will later on generations later thousands of years later in fact they said No. No we're not going to be banned from that. They call it the ban. R- actually going to go to the undying land anyway. And so sorry. Ron Shows up on the scene later. On the Newman Guide extremely wealthy and very arrogant. And that's why they decided to say you know what we're going to them dying land anyway. We don't care we're better. We know better and sarin help feed that. In fact he came to the island as a prisoner and faked being captured by one of the minority and kings. And that's where all this got started. And the Valor said. We're not having any of that. As soon as one of the kings went to the undying land he destroyed the army and sunk the island. And so basically. This is tokens version of Atlantis. But as we know some of airborne's relatives he still door remember. He was from new minore. They left the island before it sank and established colonies in middle earth. And there's where we get gone door fascinating fascinating story. I definitely don't do it. Justice but the whole story has a lot of intrigue and you can find a detailed story of this in the Sylmar million towards the back. It's called the Cala Bath and it's only about thirty pages long and goes into much more detail of the capturing of SAR on and the deception. He gives the king and how he moves. The Newman orients down that dark dark path to the point that they start doing human sacrifices as well. Then there's another book called. The Tales of new Minora and middle earth has even more little short stories about the different kings of new minore and how they had shifted over the years and started getting more evil also in the return of the king. If you remember there's those a pen nixes in the back there's one in there called Appendix B. That gives you an outline a time line. Excuse me of the second age which is when this whole Numidian. Time-line took place and it gives an outline of the second age and talks about how they started. And how you can see there that they slowly disintegrated down to basically evil so you get little tidbits of the new minority ans even in the Lord of the rings books the Cala Bath and the other. The unfinished tales of numerous men are numerous middle. Earth just gives you more detail. One of the quotes from the tales of numerous middle earth is this. They turn their play into great matters and great matters into play. I thought that was just a fun quote from the book and that one details of middle earth is written by Tolkien but edited by his son. Just like the Iranian Christopher Tolkien so what Christopher Tolkien did in a nutshell is take little stories that his dad wrote but never finished and kind of put them together. In a more cohesive matter. Not The best as you know by. The million is very disjointed. But that's the best he could do so he might find a couple of paragraphs about the new minority in kings over here and he finds another two three or four pages about the numerous Newman. Orients over here and put them all into one book? And that's what he did definitely check out the bath in the back of the sylmar million or tales of new minore in middle earth or both good and the Cala bath is very short so you can probably sit down and read those thirty pages very quickly and it's just a fun read. I just but I'm also a token nerd so take that with a grain of

"Here's where it gets they crazy. Yes actually Oh oh yes. According to. According to multiple people believe that they at least east no where the mythic civilization of Atlantis was located and some people believe that they have found it and they've been been searching for this for a long time. Now remember we're talking about two different kinds of Atlantis. One kind of Atlantis is the Oji. Is You one. The Plato described Somebody Topi in society downfall punished by the gods. A God's a real B B Atlantis. A I would you know. was by Gibraltar the pillars of Hercules. And then the second. Atlantis is the one that has all the bells and whistles of folklore folklore and all of the personal attitudes people writing about it later in the first centuries of the Christian era people. It didn't really talk too much about Atlantis. They said you know what Aristotle road it was quoting. Plato those guys are stand up dudes. They taught us a lot. So we don't need to worry about it. In the sixteen. Hundreds in sixteen twenty seven there was of course Francis Bacon the English philosopher and scientist who who published a Utopian novel titled The new Atlantis. And just like Plato. He was mainly. I don't know he was taking the story of Atlantis in a different direction. He wasn't saying it was necessarily true. He was more interested in exploring the ideas of politically and scientifically advanced society on a previously unidentified island. That did amazing thing that did amazing things I in sixteen seventy nine there was a sweeter scientist named Toss Route Beck who published a book called UPLANDS. At L. A. N. T. and this. This is a work in four volumes. And over the course of this. This is interesting this way now. I have read all four volumes. But here's what happens. Essentially throughout this four volume him work route Beck is trying assiduously to prove that the thing plato called. Atlantis was located located in Sweden. Just by the way where he's from and all human languages are descended from Swedish. which by the way what he speaks? Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean this is interesting though because this is the first time where Atlantis is depicted as being at the center center of humanity. Right like the origin point or at least one of one of the bottlenecks where through the origins of humanity went the through which they traveled Connecting everything this occurred on this earth all languages all peoples. It all centered around Atlantis at one time before they spread across fear and it sounds. It sounds weird now. But you're right that's that's a huge pivot point. It's easy to dismiss it knowing what we know about the evolution of language today right. That Swedish was not the basis for things like Mandarin. Bantu you know other other languages that existed before then we'll also goes against our the known migratory pattern of Hugh of humanity and you know our descendants across time. There's a lot of questions of course. Yeah but it goes against a lot it also would have even back in the sixteen. Hundreds been a more compelling argument argument if the guy making it was not himself Swedish. You know there's a it smacks of nationalism and at the time people in Sweden other Swedes. I thought makes sense. Yeah Sweet Yeah Swede and even then people out there were people who did not believe Rubik's association and they were pretty much. Everybody who wasn't Swedish said this. This doesn't make sense And we have we have other examples. There's so many that we can't the that we're trying to sort of emphasize the ones that show US pivot point uh-huh so in the eighteen hundreds there was a US congressman former U S Congressman with a Great Name Ignatius l Donnelly and he published. The book called Atlantis the Anti Diluvian world and this this became a watershed moment for an aunt. The best choice of words for what is sometimes called the Ecole ties. Ation of Atlantis which is taking member again and we're talking about two different conceptual places says This one was putting the emphasis on suppressed technology on this idea of a proto civilization upon which the majority if not all modern civilizations are based so he says that Atlantis was more It did yes it did have its capital at seat On an island but it was really an empire fire of sorts and that immigrants from Atlanta had gone to ancient Europe to Africa to the American Continents Mints and that they're heroes would ultimately become the inspiration for God's and adventures in other mythologies Scandinavian in Hindu and Greek. So it's it's similar to root big claim but this was the more popular version was more sophisticated argument because now he say not only does language spring from this place but everything you see that feels like a common common thread throughout global mythology is because it all comes from the same place. Where we're we're recognizing pattern were categorizing in? It's is one of the most popular Survivor arguments that the floods in the earthquakes consumed everything in a night in a day and some people all survived or maybe they were just happened to be out of town off the island and they brought their knowledge to other ancient people. So that's why you'll see. See you'll see arguments that say. Well look at these unexplained carvings on the you know Toward the eastern side of South America Central America. And you'll see people arguing that while the olmecs were actually Atlantan or or those myths in some areas of the world about mysterious Pale people who show up and tell you how to do things Those are stories about people both from Atlantis. There's not a lot to back this up but it's a very it was for. Its time. It's a blockbuster it's it's something something people love because it ties into the the concurrent rise of an interest in spirituality and science united that we can despite the fact that we were bad at it earlier our species can in fact understand the world around us and so People were followers of theon sophy and people who were later what would become what we would later. Call new agers or people have new age. Beliefs loved this and they were saying saying well. You know maybe this means that ESP clairvoyance all these other things that are dismissed by the scientific ACA The scientific institutions of of these days. Maybe they were just ancient technology and Atlanta's had a handle on it and it's being suppressed and this where we enter the story of a guy named Edgar Casey. Who did something really interesting? Have we ever talked. Educates you on the show this year. We have yeah I I think it's mostly an invention when when we are getting into some of these realm that's right Of lost history or something like that. He comes up yeah so he was a he was born eighteen seventy seven. He was a clairvoyant. And he would go into. trances is known as the Sleeping Prophet. And in his trances. He would answer questions that people ask them about everything from nutrition to chronic illness. Reincarnation incarnation future wars of future events of global import and. He talked about Atlantis as well his stories a little bit. Different print from Rubik's A little bit different from Bacon and so on because he and and different from my boy Ignatius because he had a specific prediction that appeared depending on where you stand appeared to come true just a quick mention. We did talk about Edgar. Casey in an episode called prophecy predictions and pre science. Will I think it was back in the youtube days as well so there should be a video version of okay audio Oh. ESPN he got. He got very specific about a place. Where at least some part of the thing that we call Atlantis? The city would rise is up from the ocean depths at some point and he pinpointed he said it would rise off off the coast of Bombini around the western end of the Bahamas and he was like that is definitely going to happen. You guys. I'm Edgar Casey. That's my word and I'm sticking to it. That's how we talked. Atlantis is GONNA hang out over over there off the mini and guess what happened in nineteen sixty eight and all. I guess it's right here. Diver actually discovered discovered an underwater rock formation now known as the Amini road. Oh it's fascinating and whether or not it was men made Whether it was natural just not know right now. Well it appears to be natural just kind of put that out. There appears to be natural but I don't believe believe IT I. I don't know man because it looks. Yes sure it could all be just a a pattern Saturn that we are inventing the we attempt to see if you pull up photographs. It looks it looks like these are gigantic Stones laid out in a pattern pattern right like a cobblestone road for giants. You know mcgann experts have pooh-poohed the idea that it was man. Dan Made is also sometimes called the the meany wall and the look like they're limestone blocks laid out in order in a pattern. It's not hard to find. You can see a ton of photographs of it. However there are people who you feel that there's a geological non human argument for its creation and then there are people who feel like it has has been created by some ancient civilization? Wouldn't that be relatively easy to test for like in terms of the composition or the consistency of the material. I'm no underwater water geologist or anything that you would think that you know taking a sample You could date at the very least and then kind of figure out what kind of material it's made and based on that figure out if it was cobbled together from different stuff for if it's consistent or whatever. Well I think this calls for a trip guys yes Hamas sure. Of course we need to go. Can I bring snorkel face mask or have to get a snorkel organ. We're going to get face mask. Oxygen tanks. We're going to send Paul down there. We're going to start an applebees on the ocean on under the well. It's going to be right above of like floating floating apple but the event space under the water. You can snorkel the road to get there there we go there we go and talk shirts in. How got up t shirts and also flippers? What's the what's the fancy word for those come out? dippers he's just gone flippers I think thinks Oh ins fence foot fence. Here's here's the best part about the applebee's that's GONNA float above. The Bikini Road. Is it that they play. Play Atlantis the lost empire. Twenty four seven. I mean that will certainly be a feature the best part. Is that when you go there. You're going to have your four basic food groups okay beans. Yeah Yeah Bacon whiskey. Yep Yep Oh and there's a fourth on large large three fingers just I've I've in my head. I was like their four things within my hand to trade really did okay hang on. I'M GONNA make eye contact contact with with Michigan sufficient okay. We got it okay. got a weird nod though. I think we can lean into this little a little further. Yeah Yeah it's it's weird because Benin road it's fascinating about this is that it's when people are arguments may have made it's often presented as a a relatively unique thing but it's it's one of several types of formations found throughout the world. There's a tesla pavement in Tasmania. There's the In Oklahoma. There's this jointed bedrock. That has been called Venetian fortress and furnace There's a place called Battlement Mesa in Colorado when you just mentioned before the battlement what we're nation fortress interest in furnace also.

"They don't want you to know it occurs to me that although this episode is coming out in twenty twenty January most likely this is the last episode we are. We're going to record for the year recording this the very end of twenty nineteen. Oh yes the lost decade is out. What history the name of the teams? It's interesting Because we're also covering something today that many of our fellow listeners. I have asked us to cover for years and years and years. We've touched upon this. We have mentioned it But as as you all know longtime listeners when we first set that out creating this show we generally wanted to go for more obscure things Things that were on the edges of the map things that mainstream people probably would not have encountered before things that used to be on the map rights so we we skipped over Initially usually things like the JFK's assassination area fifty one the moon landing all those all those history channel hits Today we are finally early We're finally investigating something that has been a longtime coming or a longtime going if you go if you believe the story and that is is the tale of Atlantis Not Atlanta Atlanta's so here are the facts. According to the the folklore the stories that we we all know. Atlantis was a civilization located on a mysterious island and in ancient times. Sometimes we do very much mean ancient. This civilization was a seat of great culture and learning like later seats of learning such as Alexandria people came to Atlantis from far and wide to learn the secrets of technology to divide the workings workings of the world. And the Gods the heavens in the firmament we know that it was a city laid out on this island in in sort of concentric rings and a had a central canal going through to the center but Atlantis had some issues despite the fact that it was so oh advanced in architecture. Art and technology it was destroyed Nine thousand years ago nine thousand six hundred years ago when a wave and earthquake sent by Poseidon the God of waves and the end earthquakes When Poseidon got tired of them he He sent these natural disasters or divine disasters to punish the inhabitants for their wicked ways. With a minute. Though weren't the gods odds pretty bacchanalian themselves the Interesting choice words there yet Any study of Greco Roman gods. I even the Old Testament God of Judaism Islam and Christianity. A shows a pretty clear. Study hypocrisy you know what I mean Do as I say say not as I do. I didn't Zeus. Come down to earth in the form of like a a Aram. A goose goose. Yeah so he couldn't How do they with his whom ever and he stayed in Goose Forum when he did that The way the story goes yeah. Weird and the You know that's very common Hamann in tales of Pantheon's but so back to Atlantis we can already see how this story in folklore has so much in common with similar tales from around the world advanced civilizations laid low by divine forces. And you know. Some of the specifics are common to other stories Gods seem too often punish ancient communities via floods. We can see this as a parable of sorts sorts. You can choose to read it in that way which is a warning right. Tell tell people what not to do or else less the be punished. A cautionary retail. Yeah well yes parable the first mention of Atlantis We do have the earliest known. Mention of Atlanta's very interesting comes comes to us from Plato in his dialogue to May ascend critise. Plato Describes Atlantis as not just an island but a huge island. It says it's larger than Libya in Asia. Minor put together. He also says that he is relating this story Third or even fourth hand which which will will get to because there's a character in his dialogues character Cretaceous CRI S. And this guy says okay. I heard the story of Atlantis from my grandfather. who heard it from Athenian politician named Solon. This is three hundred years before or Plato was around and that this guy. This politician in turn learned it from an Egyptian priest and the Egyptian priest is the one who says it happened nine thousand years ago in. Atlantis was protected by the God. Poseidon who they worshiped and they made the son of Poseidon. Like demi-god kind of like. Thank you alluded to earlier and They made his son King of the islands. His name was atlas so he ruled the island and the ocean surrounding it and as the Atlantans came up in the world as they became more powerful geopolitically their ethics declined the place was awash in corruption in depravity and perversion their armies met a lot of success eventually. According to the story they conquered parts of North Africa They went on to conquer at least part of Italy. The atrocities part of Italy and then eventually The people of Athens posse up with some like minded Atlanta's haters and they drove the folks back. They drove them out of Italy. They drew with him out of Egypt North Africa but at this point they were still very much in play. They got their butts whipped once and they were still oh planning to do more damage in Plato's writings continue About Atlantis Again in that dialogue. This time to me is and He writes that. This lost civilization wasn't fact in a location. A place where you could go. It was real He he calls it the pillars others of Hercules. The the area where this Atlantis existed and these days like if you looked right now. Hey what what are the pillars of Hercules Assiri. It would be called the Strait of Gibraltar. which is unknown thing? You can look that up right now. You can travel there. Yeah you go right now if you want it and Plato argues that despite being technologically advanced and having pretty well organized society. The people of Atlantis Atlanta's Didn't have infrastructure in place to protect them from the wolf that was at their door constantly basically the threat of floods ads and earthquakes You know whether or not they were actually sent. By God's or not and the AD APPs they were basically out there completely unprotected and that Great Island of Atlantis along with the city that was built upon it did sink over the course of a single all night and day right around ninety six hundred B C e now that would be intents right right because again. This is larger than Libya in Asia. Minor longer this thing is almost its own continent. How could the entire thing be gone within forty eight hours but here actually by floods especially by floods and dearth? Wakes earthquakes makes a little more sensitive. That's the question that's just what it means. The sea level rose so high that it's swallowed up. Everything would depend on the kind of tectonic tonic shift to because the have risen or the island could have descended bombings is. So here's the deal. That's that's the story where you can read the full quotations in in these dialogues. But a Plato's tail spoiler alert has a number of vagaries IMP- Blot Holes I. He doesn't stop it saying that The inhabitants of Atlanta's worshiped poseidon. He says that they were blood. Descendants descendents of Poseidon and this links the more with myth than it does with any tribal community that would have been extent at the time. You know what I mean I it Lantis also I like that. You pointed out that they had a good social system here because they did have a constitution that was eerily incredibly similar to a constitution that Plato outlined as a good idea in the republic so yeah yeah so it's it it does have has some troubling ties to fiction already even ancient Greeks at the time. We're not sure we're weather to your point whether Plato story was meant to be taken his history or a metaphor and allegory. You know what I mean. It's kind of like The BRERA rabbit ace up fables you know no one there were no one really thought there was a talking rabbit right. Some people did. I'm sure I don't WanNa ruin that for us listening but in the written history books right who has never written. Oh once a talking rabbit. It did this and his name was this right. We have to emphasize this part because there were strong doubts about the veracity of this tale from the very beginning and there award to more issues that. Come into play with the timeline that I think Raise serious questions about the story just just from the trump before we get anywhere near the most recent like millennium. There were problems with the story. The number one on our list. Here is that when Plato. Plato talked about Atlanta's. This is the first time it had been mentioned before the phrase Atlantis place the thing just the name itself Atlantis. Atlantis was the first time it was ever mentioned when Plato wrote it down so even though he says it happened nine thousand years ago no no one talked about it. This Egyptian priests who so willingly told his tale to an Athenian politician. Apparently never talked to anybody else about it at. Aw and it was just this one conversational thread through millennia. Why but it's also like I mean it references the intervention? John of God's as though that is just of course. That's what happens right. Yep so you gotTA wonder. Is he making up. Some sort of teachable moment kind of tail. or where's he getting this info from there's another aspect here The the second part I think is also hours a damning but it doesn't make the tail. Look good if this was rediscovered knowledge and if it was legitimate how come none of Plato's contemporaries aries none of Aristotle's contemporaries deigned to mention. It's a lot like imagine. Imagine aliens were discovered extraterrestrials. Were discovered they were real and you turn on your local cable news to hear about it and you find that only one cable outlet is reporting on it and it's Fox snooze only Fox News some intense cataclysmic thing right right right It's a global events. Why is only one source Talionis? The those are pretty Pretty important pieces. Those are things we would think. If this were real place we would have heard about prior to Plato Lido or we would have at least heard his contemporaries saying something about Atlantis. I would say very here just explore a little more as we go but you know around the time that Plato's walking around There had been quite a bit of his history written down by that point but however there would still be at that time countless of tales that it only been passed down through word of mouth right vocal histories that would still there existed across the planet at that time that perhaps never did make it you know on papyrus or whatever whatever instrument and piece of material. You're going to write it down on just we. We have to put that out there as has in. There's still that room which is where our show comes in for speculation even though these things are going against it from the jump right right and the valid concerns did not did not stop the party. The legend of Atlanta's grew over time from the time of Plato. To with the time that you're hearing this episode numerous later authors would argue that Plato had part of the story right but he was. Let's call it incorrect. You're confused multiple accounts and just like any other game of telephone people embellished this thing. They tailored to fit their own notions Russians so the original story was rephrased as it was retold over and over and over again and soon the residents of Atlantis houses were no longer descended. From God's they were actually aliens or hybrids of Aliens. And these people who believe this would argue that Plato and his contemporaries were just were just framing extraterrestrials through a social lens that they could understand and and then they would say well. The city's technology was super advanced. They had no idea how advanced it was. They used energy crystals and and they affected global OSHII onic patterns the effect of the world in more ways than we know. As a matter of fact you'll read some fringe author. You're saying You can you can clearly tell that all of the quote unquote paranormal disturbances. In the Bermuda Triangle are ultimately intimately traceable.

"atlantis" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories
"Time. The Atlantis story was largely accepted as fact over the centuries. Many readers have refused to believe that it Lantis is fictional typically they've placed the historical lost island in either the Mediterranean or the Americas. But our first conspiracy theory contends that the island was actually off the coast of Spain. Well, researching his twenty fifteen book meet me in Atlanta's author Mark Adams spent years speaking with a story ins archaeologist and conspiracy theorists. His goal was understanding why so many people believe Atlantis exists and was hidden or covered up, and if any of their theories held any merit what he found was that. So called Atlanta colleges from Minnesota to Morocco all believe there was a kernel of truth within the ancient legend, the problem was in sorting the fact from the fiction, the first issue to address in any of the possible theories is the dimensions Plato gives for the island size Adams agreed with the scholarly consensus that those numbers were heavily influenced by patheticness as we mentioned last week, the mathmetician and philosopher literally had a cult following in ancient Greece his followers. Ascribed extreme symbolic significance to certain numbers. For example. They never gathered in groups of more than ten people because ten was the perfect number many people believe that the oddly specific numbers in the Atlantis story were intended as Therrien symbols rather than as factual details. Plato described Atlantis being surrounded by rings of massive concentric circles, and pathetic or in philosophy circles are considered the ideal shape. This detail was probably added to symbolize the perfection of the islands utopian society. Scholars typically take this symbolic numerology as evidence that the entire Atlantis story was invented as a metaphor. But to Atlanta's believers understanding, the Pathet grin symbols is the key to unlocking the truth if the circular ring surrounding Atlantis were just added in for symbolic fact, we can disregard them in our search for the actual lost island the historic Lantis. If it really existed could have been any shape at all Mark Adams, also used a strategy to tackle the other major obstacle regarding the search for Atlantis the island's massive dimensions Plato's, given measurements put Atlanticists total area at nearly six hundred eighty two thousand square miles bigger than the state of Alaska, and this is without counting the mountains or ring surrounding the central plain theoretical. Physicist Raina Kuna hypothesized that the city's dimensions were actually a math joke. If Atlanticists central plane was three thousand by two thousand Stade's, it's total parameter would be ten thousand states. The ancient Greek word for ten thousand was Maria d-, which also meant largest possible number. According to Kuna Plato may have just meant to say that Atlantis was incalculably huge similarly Plato's claim that Atlantis existed nine thousand years ago may have been an exaggeration. Mark Adams came to the conclusion that have some of Plato's numbers were symbolic. None of them can be reliably used as evidence for finding the real Atlantis. This also a lot of the problems involved in linking, the massive prehistoric city to relocations. So what clues can be used to find Atlantis Adams focuses on two aspects of Plato story. That seem historically reliable. Atlanta says war with Athens and the earthquakes that destroyed the area. In Plato's dialogue, Solan travels to Egypt where the priests tell him about a mighty power, which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe. And Asia these forces from an island known as it Lantis toppled every city in the region, except Athens who soldiers successfully fought back, it's unknown whether the historical Solan actually heard the story from priests in Egypt, or whether the framing device was a fiction invented by Plato, but according to historian, Eric h Cline?.

"Perhaps no one has had a greater influence on Atlantis conspiracy theories, then Ignatius Donnelly, all of the previous men were accomplished in their fields of study outside of what they had to say about Atlantis. This was not true for agnosio Donnelly in eighteen fifty seven Donnelly and his wife left their home in Pennsylvania to start a cooperative farming community in Minnesota he and his partners built communal homes a hotel and a newspaper office, but that same year a financial panic hit the United States and the new community collapsed before it even got off the ground after that failure Donnelly decided to enter politics after he was elected to congress in eighteen sixty three he became a local supporter of highly unpopular. Ideas, like women's suffrage and abolition ISM his efforts were spectacularly unsuccessful. And in the next election in eighteen sixty nine he was voted out of office. He went back to his failed. Minnesota commune and wrote quote, all my hopes are gone and the future settles down upon me dark and gloomy indeed. And quote, but during his time in Washington DC Donnelly had had accessed the library of congress. He was an avid reader, and by the end of his tenure he had a favorite subject Atlantis in eighteen eighty two. He wrote his book Atlantis the anti diluvian world. It should be mentioned that Jules Verne's novel twenty thousand leagues under the sea came out in eighteen seventy twelve years before Donnelly published his work, and there's a strong likelihood that Donnelly had read it. Twenty thousand leagues under the sea is an adventure story where the characters briefly visit the lost city of Atlantis while it's just a small mention it brought Atlantis back into popular culture. So when Donnelly came out with his book on Atlantis the public was primed to embrace it. In other words, it was clever marketing Donnelly begins his book by boldly. And clearly stating that Plato story about Atlantis should be taken. As fact, he also adamantly states that Atlantis is somewhere near the Americas. Donnelly further describes Atlantis as utopia with an advanced language in technologies and claims that it was the location of the garden of Eden, the explains that the reason most civilizations around the world have a flood story within the annals of their mythology is because all cultures originated from Atlantis the people that survive. The flood left and started cultures in Egypt Europe and Israel Donnelley's the first to use i-in tiff evidence to argue that Atlantis Israel in the early eighteen seventies. The US coastguard had just discovered that the Gulfstream in the North Atlantic flowed in a clockwise circular motion. Scientists had also discovered a large bulk Cannock mountain range under this part of the ocean. Donnelly argued that the mountains were the same ones that had once protected the center of Atlantis the Gulf stream flowed circularly because for so many years it had circled the now sunken island, the impact of Donnelly's book was intense the public absolutely adored it and Donnelly was finally receiving positive attention in the eighteen seventies. A British cabinet member. Even wanted to put together a task force to find Atlantis. The scientific community wasn't quite as on. Board.

"Your warlike men in a body sank into the earth and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea and quote. A few key details from the story have been aggressively researched in the search for Atlantis. The first point of contention is the date nine thousand years ago. The oldest known civilizations are dated around the three thousand BC era. If Plato's date was correct that would mean that there was an advanced culture living six thousand years before the earliest evidence, we have of human civilization scholars usually point to this discrepancy as evidence that the story is fictional. And if what we've heard about Atlantis so far seems within the realm of historical possibility Plato second dialogue criticize paints a picture of Atlantic civilization. That sounds much more myth than fact. The critics dialogue focuses on the mythical origins of Atlantis and what the island was like before it disappeared under the see Plato's character. Critics explains that Atlantis was ruled by the Greek God Poseidon, he married a mortal name Klay Atto and she lived on a hill at the center of the island in the planes that surrounded the hill beside and created cold and warm water springs to make sure his progeny never suffered for water elephants roam the massive plane, which was two hundred and thirty miles in width the planes were surrounded by mountains, which protected Klay toe in her descendants from the harsh of north wind beside an also created five perfect circles around the hills alternating between land and water in a sort of bullseye fashion to protect against invaders the two outermost rings of water and land or each about three Stade's at their widest point the middle to rings were too. Stade's wide and the final ring of water around the hill was one statewide the stayed is an ancient unit of measurement that continues to boggle modern scholars it's generally agreed to equal about six hundred feet. But some ancient writers used the term to refer to distances of three hundred feet. If we assume one stayed equals six hundred feet, the total diameter of the island of Atlantis would be over four hundred miles across surrounded by another mile of circular rings for reference that's more than twice the size of the largest Greek island Crete, this massive size suggest the islands. Description is symbolic instead of historically accurate. Maybe maybe not moving on the during Poseidon Klay toes marriage. She bore five sets of twins all sons as the sons became men beside and distributed the land equally between the ten princes with the. Oldest receiving the central hill. His name was atlas and the empire took his name becoming Atlantis at this point Poseidon deemed, Atlantis the perfect society.

They would begin these meetings by capturing and slaughtering a bull and offering it up as a sacrifice to Poseidon after the sacrifice the leaders pledged. They would never attempt to overthrow each other. And if one did the others would all rally together to defeat mutineer? But even though Atlantis grew prosperous and strong the prince's link to Sidon weakened over the generations as they married mortal women after a while their actions became more, human and less godly, eventually Zeus, the leader of the gods was so displeased with what Lantis had become that. He came down from out Olympics to Atlantis to confront them Plato writes, quote, Zeus had gathered them together he said, and that's it the open ended. He said are the last two words of Plato's dialogue, the ultimate cliffhanger. But is the story unfinished or is the abrupt ending part of Plato's lesson Plato went on to write other works after this one. So perhaps he was planning to circle back and continue the story at a later date or maybe he felt he had set enough already. No one really knows. But what we do know is that these fifty pages ignited a two thousand plus year debate about whether Atlantis Israel or not during ancient times. Many people accepted the story as truth whether Plato intended it to be read that way or not even in more recent eras, some people point to the exact.
