Edgar Cayce and Atlantis
By Bret Burquest
Anthropologists once believed
North and South America had initially been populated by
Asians crossing a land bridge connecting Asia and Alaska
during the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago. However, recent genetic DNA
analysis of Native Americans now places the initial wave of migration between
38,000 to 50,000 years ago.
analysis can trace the ethnic tribal lineage, and thereby land of the origin,
of a human being.
Native American tribes contain four
distinct DNA groupings, designated A, B, C
and D. These groupings are found in Asia but not in Europe
or Africa. While 96 percent of all indigenous natives in
North and South America fall within A, B, C and D, there
was a mysterious four percent, dubbed Group X, that couldn't be explained.
Type X subjects were not found in
the vast majority of tribes, including none in South America.
It was also determined Type X subjects arrived in North America
10,000 to 38,000 years ago, later than the other groups.
By far, the highest concentration
of Type X in Europe was found in the Basques, a race of
Caucasians who live in the Pyrenees Mountains
and France. And
the highest frequency of Type X in the entire world was found in the Berbers, a
race of Caucasians who live in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco in North
The Basques and Berbers have long
puzzled anthropologists, linguists and historians because they don't seem to
fit into their continental surroundings. However, independent researchers of
the Association of Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), followers of Edgar
Cayce, came forward and made a few observations of their own.
Known as the Sleeping Prophet,
Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) is considered by many to have been America's
foremost psychic. Throughout his lifetime he performed over 14,000 readings
while in a self-induced trance. Although delving into many subjects, 8,976 of
his readings, transcribed onto 900,000 pages of notes, were devoted to medical
problems, a majority of which were resolved, often advancing current medical
Ironically, the genetic DNA
analysis findings may actually lend credence to Edgar Cayce's psychic readings.
Many of Edgar Cayce's readings
concerned the island continent of Atlantis, the fabled empire located beyond
the Pillars of Hercules (presumably the Rocks of
Gibraltar in the western Mediterranean), as thoroughly
detailed in Plato's "Timaeus," that fell
into the sea. The readings described three separate disasters that befell
The first catastrophe happened in
50,700 BC, caused by an explosion of gas pockets within the earth that
triggered volcanoes and earthquakes, generated a magnet pole shift on the
planet and produced a great Ice Age.
The second catastrophe occurred in
28.000 BC, coinciding with the Biblical account of Noah and the Great Flood.
After the deluge, the continent had been broken into three main islands: Aryaz in the east (present day Azores
Island group), Poseidia
in the north (West Indies area), and Og in the south (near South America).
The final catastrophe took place
in 10,600 BC. There were gigantic land upheavals upon the earth and the
remaining land mass of Posedia and Aryaz (except for the mountain peaks) disappeared into the
The Cayce readings indicated the Atlanteans had been forced to relocate to various distant
lands during the catastrophes, specifically to the Pyrenees
Mountains (between Spain
and France), Morocco
(Atlas Mountains), Egypt
(where they built the pyramids) and North America (where
they formed the Iroquois nation).
In North America,
the highest concentration of Type X lineage was found within the Iroquois
nation (Ojibway, Oneota and
Nuu-Chah-Nulth tribes). Cayce also reported some Atlanteans went on to the American Southwest and Midwest.
The Navajo (Southwest) and mound builder region (Midwest)
also contain some Type X subjects.
The bottom line is that everywhere
Edgar Cayce (psychic readings) claimed the Atlanteans
settled after their land disappeared has a high unaccountable occurrence of a
specific DNA type found nowhere else on this
This isn't exactly scientific
proof of the prior existence of Atlantis, but we live in a very strange
Edgar Cayce may have been a
brilliant talent or merely a crackpot.
Either way, it's an awesome
