Many have dismissed Plato's account of the lost continent and people of Atlantis as an inventive fantasy but John Gordon argues that this is not only a true account of a forgotten civilization but also a brilliant and complex metaphor for cosmic creation. In presenting the evidence for Atlantis and its fate, Gordon raises controversial questions about the flawed logic of Darwinian theory and demonstrates that neither this nor literal Creationism is the only option for a credible theory of evolution. His research leads him to question modern scientific orthodoxy on a range of accepted theories which, he claims, are built on similarly weak foundations.He discusses the 'Big Bang' theory of Earth's origin; the concept that modern humans are of relatively recent date (he argues that an intelligent and creative humanity existed over ten million years before the earliest date that modern science admits is possible); the idea that dinosaurs were destroyed due to an asteroid impact; and the belief that present-day global warming has a human cause.
