There are many books written prophesying the forthcoming 2012, the changes that will happen, and what to expect. However, each author has his own concept and prophecy considering it his or her own truth. Frank Joseph takes the research further and explains that the Mayan Calendar was originally invented by the peoples of the lost continents of Atlantis and Lemuria and the calendar was actually brought to Mexico by the survivors of Atlantis. Much of his research comes from Edgar Cayce but also includes Egyptian and Greek history, works of Plato, and scientific studies and predictions from the Hopi, the Incas, and the Scandinavian Norse.
“Atlantis and 2012” was a slow read for me. I found the information very compelling and easy to understand but there is so much background and research it took me many sittings to digest all that Joseph was saying. His knowledge of Atlantis supersedes anyone else that has done research or writing. It is concise and informative as well as direct and scientific.
Personally I’m not sure what to think of what will happen at the end of 2012. The presentation by Joseph in “Atlantis and 2012” gave me another thought to conceptualize and contemplate. I believe his research is valid and commend him on putting his 25-plus years of investigation and study into a publication for us to consider. For some the shift may be traumatic or dramatic, others may not notice at all. For some it may be enlightenment, for others it may digression. We do not know until the actual date will pass. I encourage you to read this book and decide for yourself.
