Collective memory of the Flood can be traced back to the myths and legends found in cultures all over the world. An element that is common to all of them is the destruction of humankind, in antiquity. Although the vast majority of people were annihilated, a smaller group survived, led by a key figure: Noah, Nene, Atrahasis, or Manu, depending on how each culture chronicles these events. In that era, technology was highly advanced, and some fled, using their airships, known as vimanas.
Remains of their constructions have been found underwater, in a variety of seas. These artefacts, which date back approximately 12,000 years, corroborate the existence of the civilisation of Atlantis.
Mythology and ancient written sources teach us that the final era of Atlantis was marked by a huge catastrophe. The ocean’s waves grew as high as mountains, whilst hurricanes and volcanic explosions shook the entire planet. Some scholars hypothesise, that the impact of a massive asteroid or comet – some 12,000-13,000 years ago – accelerated the end of the last ice-age. It also triggered a crucial change in the history of our civilisation, destroying Atlantis and causing the Flood, as a number of different contemporary researchers suggest.
