You infer that you have read my work yet you have not cited a single line of it you have only referenced my posts.

So what is your complaint? That I am not attempting to defend my position? Without knowledge in full of what I have written, which you appear not to have as you have supplied not a single scrap of evidence that you have read the work, you have no real idea of what is behind my assertions.


I therefore repeat that when you are familiar with my work I shall debate it with you but until such time it is pointless. Cool your aggression and discover what I have written, think about it and then come back to debate it




I already said i've looked at your curious ramblings, so regarding the chapter on Atlantis, begining page 436 here,




[www.completelynovel.com]



After having trawled the twenty page preamble on NASA and disparate facts on Greek history, you consider the question of where the name Atlantis derived we find you in agreement with the Theosophist Massey that it can be traced through etymology to Egypt, no mention of the Greek God Atlas, then it's on to Masseys mistaken position on seven nomes of Egypt and seven pole stars and precession etc.



Read Timaeus for Platos interest in sevenfold division....nothing to do with pole stars or precession.


After failing to note Platos actual premise for sevenfold division, and continuing in your Massey wonderland until you end the chapter were you began with space rockets.



Next chapter, Celestial Atlantis, we eventually come to your point regarding the city of Atlantis being the constallation Hercules around celetial North, page 544, a most curious notion to arrive at.



However if one considered the astrological associations of the constellation known as Engonasin to the Greeks,



Of this constellation is begotten the desertion, craftiness, and deceit characteristic of its children, and from it comes the thug who terrorizes the heart of the city. If perchance his mind is moved to consider a profession, Engonasin [a Greek title for constellation Hercules] will inspire him with enthusiasm for risky callings, with danger the price, for which he will sell his talents: daring narrow steps on a path without thickness, he will plant firm feet on a horizontal tightrope; then, as he attempts an upward route to heaven, (on a sloping tightrope) he will all but lose his footing and, suspended in mid-air, he will keep a multitude in suspense upon himself" [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century, AD, p.353.]



then i guess that about sums things up...
