Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis
Dr. P. P. Flambas
A Scientific Analysis
‘Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis’ provides a scientific
explanation for the greatest and most misunderstood
archaeological mystery of any era – the lost civilisation
In his two works, the ‘Timaeus’ and ‘Critias’, the Ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote in about 360 BCE about a powerful Atlantean empire that existed over eleven thousand years ago. Plato described an extensive empire based on an enormous Atlantic Island located in the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlanteans were involved in a war with the people of the Mediterranean but natural disasters eventually destroyed the Atlantic Island, which sank beneath the sea and disappeared.
Plato’s Atlantis story continues to intrigue people to the present day. Up to now, the thousands of books written about Atlantis have tried to interpret the details Plato described, with hundreds of theories proposed for its location. All of these past interpretations and theories have attempted to explain a few parts of Plato’s story but do not explain the entire story.
‘Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis’ claims that Plato believed
the Atlantis story was true and what he wrote was not his
invention or a myth. He wrote an accurate account of
Atlantis that had been recorded for thousands of years
before his time. By using current scientific knowledge of
the past, every detail of Plato’s story is explained so
that one can picture a real Atlantis and its empire. The
book’s conclusions may cause a radical rethinking of the
origin of human civilisation and the geological processes
that have shaped humanity.
Dr. Phil Flambas was born in Sydney, Australia in 1953.
He was a student at Sydney Boys High School and attended
the University of NSW medical school, graduating as a
doctor in 1978. From a young age, Phil has had an amateur
interest in Ancient History and Prehistory. Before
graduating medicine, he went to Sri Lanka for several
months as a medical student, followed by backpacking
through India and Nepal. After graduating, Phil worked as
a hospital doctor in England to gain extra qualifications
to be a country GP back in Australia. During that time
away from Australia, he spent several months backpacking
in Morocco, Greece, Turkey and Egypt. Later travel
destinations included Thailand and Japan. In his journeys,
Phil saw the remains of very ancient cultures first-hand,
which further spurred his interest in the remote past.
After returning to Australia and practicing medicine as a country General Practitioner for some years, Phil became interested in the commercialisation of new technologies as a change of career. He returned to Sydney and became the Managing Editor of a long-established medical journal. Realising he needed more knowledge to achieve his goals in technology transfer, he left medical publishing and entered full-time study for a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of NSW, graduating in 1992. Since then, Phil has worked as a hospital administrator, management consultant and equities analyst, supplemented at times with part-time medical work. Due to family commitments, he returned to full-time medical practice and for the past thirteen years has run his own practice as a skin cancer doctor. In his spare time, to satisfy his curiosity about pre-history, for the past six years he has researched and written about Plato’s Atlantis story.
