For over 15 years, explorer and author Marco Vigato has been researching the origins of civilization and mystery traditions around the world. He joined guest host Richard Syrett (Twitter) on Friday night to discuss the reality of Atlantis and its influence on the ancient civilizations that followed. According to Vigato, there was a great reset of civilization during the Younger Dryas period which coincided roughly with end of the last Ice Age. The world had begun warming and then something happened which caused temperatures to plunge again, he reported. "Nobody can really explain what happened at that time," Vigato said, suggesting the cataclysmic cold was caused by the impact of a large fragmenting comet that ultimately destroyed civilization.
After this period there appears to be a re-emergence of civilization from an advanced pre-cataclysm civilization. Later ancient civilizations, such as Gobekli Tepe, are vestiges of Atlantis, Vigato continued. "We see a global effort at reconstruction, rebuilding the civilization that existed before the cataclysm," he explained, pointing to the huge surge in construction of monolithic structures. He revealed how Gobekli Tepe, the oldest archaeological site on the planet, featured sophisticated architecture and a system of hieroglyphic writing thousands of years before ancient Egypt. "Somebody came to Gobekli Tepe... from somewhere else bringing an already advanced civilization and culture," he said, noting they taught the local people Atlantean knowledge but over time much of it was lost.
Vigato also commented on Plato's writings about Atlantis, noting the geographic area he described corresponds to the current Azores islands. The island chain may merely be the tops of the mountains of a sunken Atlantis, he disclosed.
The second half of the program featured Open Lines. Greg in New Jersey credited former president Franklin Roosevelt and the Teamsters for helping change the plight of mistreated workers. According to Greg, Teamsters were also set to slow the U.S. supply lines during the Reagan administration after he fired the striking air traffic controllers. "I know a lot of Teamster drivers who were set to shut down the country at that point to fight back," he said. Greg commented on the COVID lockdowns, pointing to a study by Johns Hopkins that suggests they have done nothing to slow the effects of the disease.
A caller in Pollock Pines, California, told Richard the water level of a pond by his house dropped several feet and revealed dozens of stone carvings that had been previously covered. The caller asked who to contact about the find. Richard suggested seeking out a local museum or historical society in the area. Trucker Mark recalled what it looked like driving through New York City at rush hour during the height of the pandemic. "There wasn't a soul anywhere," he recalled, adding "the only thing you heard and it was really eerie was ambulances." Mark said it reminded him of Will Smith's apocalyptic movie, I Am Legend. He estimated 25 percent of restaurants in the city are permanently closed.
