If you would like to read more about this try Graham Hancock’s offical website. You might want to get loaded before reading. If you are really feeling brave try the messageboard.
Hancock is not an archeologist, but a reporter with a degree in sociology. And yes, he has been burned before. His science has been questioned before. And will continued to be questioned. It does not help matters when Hancock becomes combattive over his work. If it the sites are as old as Hancock believes he should be given credit. If they are not as old he should admit he is wrong.
Hancock was on Art Bell not too long ago promoting his book and the underwater findings. He was quick to say the sites off India weren’t Atlantis, but they could have been created by former inhabitants of Atlantis. Bell was putting Atlantis into almost all of Hancocok’s statements, so everything became Atlantis. At one point Bell (Mr. Conspiracy) made the statement: “maybe when all the archeologists are dead we will learn the truth”. Sadly, I was mot made a fan of Hancock. I ended up disliking him even more.
Here is a long debate on the “lost cities”. Grab a drink and read away. The messages get juvenile. It really is amazing what people argue about.
