Possible Atlantis Sites Discovered
By John Van Auken

For fifteen years, the Edgar Cayce Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has been conducting expeditions off the coast of the tiny island of Bimini and along the Gulf Stream in search of Atlantis. They have found fascinating underwater features that may be man-made structures covered by ages of sand and coral.

According to the Edgar Cayce readings, the people of Atlantis became aware of the fact that their civilization was about to be destroyed. As a result, they hid identical records of the Atlantean civilization in Bimini, in Egypt, and in the Yucatan. Numerous readings contend that this “Hall of Records” will be discovered, including:

(Q) Give in detail what the sealed room contains.


(A) A record of Atlantis from the beginnings of those periods when the Spirit took form or began the encasements in that land, and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn, with the record of the first destruction and the changes that took place in the land...


This in position lies, as the sun rises from the waters, the line of the shadow (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx, that was later set as the sentinel or guard, and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's paw (right paw) until the TIME has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man's experience. (Reading 378-16)

A.R.E. is still seeking the Hall of Records, which director John Van Auken believes might be found off the coast of Bimini at the edge of the Gulf Stream where the waters are 200-300 feet deep.

This first photo was taken in July of 2000 and reveals a series of terraces rising from the depths up a mound with sandy pathways.

In addition to these terraces and mounds the expeditions also found evenly spaced rectangular structures with a pathway between them, as seen in this sonar image.

Each year the Edgar Cayce Center receives tax-deductible financial contributions that allow them to do four expeditions to continue the search for the sunken remnants of legendary Atlantis.
