Edgar Cayce and Atlantis
Edgar Cayce (KAY-Cee) was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky in 1877. He died in 1945, just around the time World War II was winding down. Referred to as the “sleeping prophet," Cayce was the most recognizable psychic in the 20th century. His alleged abilities came to him in childhood when he pronounced he could talk to spirits in another realm. Unbelievably, he could recite pages of a book after having slept on it!
Most scientists believe that Atlantis was destroyed after the Ice Age, when the mammoths died, about 12,000 years ago. They surmise that the island was either hit by an asteroid or swallowed up by a shift in earth’s crust. Edgar Cayce had Atlantis predictions that helped adventurers to rediscover the lost continent. About 20 years after his death, some of his ideas proved true. For example, Cayce said that Atlantis would “rise again" and he indicated a location, Bimini, in the Bahamas. Drivers and other pilots found evidence of vertical columns and blocks in that region. Surprisingly many of these structures appeared to be manmade. Some even resembled pyramids.
Cayce also said that the Atlantean people had a grip on technology and had been able to exploit the powers of the quantum world. He stated that they used crystals, lasers, air and steam along with metals to harness sound waves and that they used quartz crystal science to mine for gold, copper and silver. He also claimed they had gas balloons, airplanes, submarines, elevators, antigravity machines, x-ray devices and even television. He said the civilization they created was so advanced they had tapped into mass mental telepathy and psycho-kinesis, the ability to move inanimate objects.
This advanced culture caused their greed and manipulations to get the best of them. Their power plants were responsible for the destruction of the land. He revealed that the most corrupt Atlanteans were known as, “Sons of Belial" and that they had developed a crystal machine that harnessed the power of the sun but the device overloaded. He said the explosion took place around 50,000 BC, splitting Atlantis into five islands, which eventually led to the last final cataclysm.
Cayce claimed the ability to read the past lives of people, assessing their fears and trauma in “previous incarnations" to help them. He put himself into a trance-like state to be possessed by these entities from patient’s earlier lives. These utterings were taken down by amanuensis—a scribe—and interpreted. He completed over 2500 readings (some say up to 14,000) and 700 of them were purportedly for Atlantis incarnations; spirit forms.
Cayce was a devoted churchgoer and Sunday school teacher who read the Bible every year of this life. At his death, he had completed the entire text 67 times.
