After doing quite a bit of researching about the genetic's linked to Atlantis, I came across something that extends beyond coincidence.
Edgar Cayce "X" DNA
First off, the website above, states that found within
Native American tribes, namly the Iroquois, a rare mtDNA haplogroup X has been found within the population. It is in this rare haplogroup X, that the
story of Atlantis finally comes to light.
So I began thinking, if there truly was a continent that split the Atlantic Ocean, this halogroup X would be found not only in DNA reminents of the
Iroquois, but also in other continent's as well. And I was right. This same halogroup, is found in Northern Africa, parts of the Middle East (Israel)
and Europe. Within Europe and the Middle East, two to four percent of the population carry it. At first, I thought to myself, well there goes my
theory, if the halgroup X is found in Israel then there is no way, it is Atlantean in orgin. On the contrary, this makes perfect logical sense, as
these Atlanteans, would have escaped to area's such a Morocco in Northern Africa in around 10,000 b.c, and upon the formation of the Jewish State of
Israel, some of their decendants (now defining themselves by the Jewish religion) would in fact, now be found in Israel.
This brings me to my second point, if Atlantis truly existed, then the creation myth's of the Iroquois and many of their customs, should be extremely
similar to creation myth of other groups on the opposite side of the Atlantic. And sure enough it wasn't long before I stumbled upon connections
within culture's that were simply too strong to ignore. (Below is the Iroquois Creation Myth)
Iroquois Creation Myth
The myth states "The Sky Woman gave birth to twin sons. One named Sapling who grew to be kind and gentle and the other son named Flint, whose heart
was as cold as his name." It is in this idea of the two son's representing opposing forces, that I found within African creation mythology that twins
represent the duality, or balance between paired or opposing forces.
It was then that I began researching the commonalities between Native American and Northern African cultures and found that within both cultures,
people use red ochre during funeral ceremonies. Even the term "Red Indians", refers to the now extinct, Native American Beothuk tribe. Also, it is
interesting to note, that the Beothuk's tribe's language, was unlike that of any other Native American Tribe.
