The people who lived in Atlantis were basically very similar to us. Just as intelligent, they laughed, loved and grew angry, although they had more highly developed psychic abilities. Many Atlanteans thought one’s life should be 50% material and 50% spiritual. During the long civilization there were many who spent an immense amount of time in contemplation and loving and helping others.
I’m not alone in thinking that those who left the art work in the caves in southwestern Europe from 30,000 B.C. until about 10,000 B.C. (during the time of Atlantis) came from Atlantis. Many of the caves are in France and Spain along the rivers that lead to the Atlantic Ocean. The art is very sophisticated and there is no evidence of their skills developing on the European continent. One example of their advanced techniques is that their paintings are still visible after so many thousands of years. They knew how to make paints that lasted. And they knew how to make the paint stick to damp cave walls. Small sculptures are also found in caves in southwestern Europe. The “Encyclopedia Britannica” tells us: “Experts consider some of these sculptures to be among the most significant works of world art.”
The people who left these art works for us are referred to as Cro-Magnons (an early race of Homo sapiens from about 40,000 B.C.) who largely replaced the Neanderthals. From their remains, we know that they had a somewhat larger brain cavity than we do, the men were about 6 feet tall, the women were somewhat shorter. They had long narrow skulls, high cheek bones and prominent chins.
The primary inhabitants of the Canary Islands when the Spaniards first arrived in the 16th century were Cro-Magnons and, as I describe in “Atlantis: Insights From a Lost Civilization”, there is evidence in other areas around the Atlantic Ocean indicating where the same type of people lived and were buried.
The skeleton found recently in the Columbia River bank in Washington is very similar to that of a Cro-Magnon. It is said that a Cro-Magnon’s body structure was so similar to ours, that if one walked down the street in any American city today, dressed in contemporary clothes, he or she would only be conspicuous because of their handsome appearance.
