The Memory of Atlantis and the Time at Hand!
“And how many a town which was iniquitous did We demolish, and We raised up after it another people! So when they felt Our might, lo! they began to flee from it. Flee not and return to the easy lives which you led, and to your dwellings, that you may be questioned. They said: O woe to us! Surely we were unjust. And this cry of theirs ceased not till We made them cut off, extinct.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 21, verses 11-15
The initial stage of our journey to Cuba entailed a two-day stopover in Nassau, capital of the Bahamas. When I learned that this would be the first leg of our trip, my thoughts raced back to approximately eight years ago when I had the opportunity to visit the small island of Bimini in the Bahamas, located about 50 miles from the Florida coast.
I was accompanied by a few Sisters from the Ft. Lauderdale-Miami area. It was my birthday present–and what a birthday present it turned out to be. We were traveling on an investigative expedition in search of the evidence viewed on television showing underwater scenes of divers on the Bimini Road being investigated as man-made megalithic stones of the lost continent of Atlantis.
Throughout these several years of research, we have become one with our family in the Bahamas, and have met with the principal representatives on the island, including the Historian of the Bahamas and the appointed Guardian of the Atlantis Mysteries. I had heard about the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in Nassau, but I didn’t know for certain that I would be close enough to visit. But on this journey, Atlantis was beckoning me on. The day before our departure to Cuba, the time had come and a few members of our delegation, including my three sons, took a few hours in the afternoon to visit this unique resort.
We made our way through the maze of dazzling casinos to the entrance of “The Dig” to begin our tour. Their brochure read: “Inside The Dig, you can discover the ruins of ancient Atlantis, history’s most legendary continent. A labyrinth of splendid chambers and twisting streets, The Dig provides a unique excursion into a wondrous civilization. The remarkably well-preserved artifacts and hieroglyphs provide evidence that Atlanteans possessed great technological and artistic prowess. Presenting an ever-changing spectacle of sights, sounds and sensations, The Dig tells a tale of the lost continent that is no longer long ago and far away. But here. And now.”
As we landed in Cuba, rushing through my mind was the memory of Atlantis and what it might mean for us today. Towards the end of our nine-day state visit, I asked several ladies of our host team about the reported discovery of ruins off the coast of Cuba that I had read about in the U.S. They confirmed that this was true, and that I would, in a future visit, be able to make contact with those who were in charge of this scientific exploration. When I returned home, I began my initial research on this subject, with help from the Editorial Department of The Final Call, which resulted in the report of our findings published in my last article of our newspaper.
If this was not stunning enough, I recently reviewed a book in my home library that speaks about the discoveries made in 1968, 1969 and 1970 of an aerial photographed region of the Bahamas revealing the outlines of a submerged pyramid between Bimini and the largest island in the chain, San Andros, all located within the Bermuda Triangle. Geographically, this area of the Bermuda Triangle begins from the beautiful island of Bermuda down to the Florida Straits and coastline to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, with Cuba at her side, while crisscrossing the Gulf of Mexico into the Yucatan Peninsula, Quintana Roo and Belize, where more discoveries are yet to be found.
More information on this discovery of the submerged pyramid is contained in the archives of the University of Miami, Museum of Science, along with the work of Dr. Ray Brown, who in his underwater digs and explorations as marine biologist entered this Temple Pyramid and found therein an inner chamber that exposed sculptured metallic hands grasping a circular quartz crystal stone. It was such an awesome find that, in his report, he stated that he received a telepathic warning not to return to that place and to advise others the same.
The Mystery of Atlantis continues to reveal itself as a warning to us today that technological advancement unchecked or not tempered with humility will carry us into the abysm of hell.
“And We will set up a just balance on the day of Resurrection, so no soul will be wronged in the least. And if there be the weight of a grain of mustard seed, We will bring it. And Sufficient are We to take account. And certainly We gave Moses and Aaron the criterion and a light and a reminder for those who keep from evil, Who fear their Lord in secret and they are fearful of the Hour. And this is a blessed Reminder, which We have revealed. Will you then deny it?” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 21, verses 47-50
