The Roman god Mercury was a swift and just messenger capable of sending messages to Heaven at lightning speeds. He was depicted as having wings sprouting from his ankles and head emphasizing his speed and agility. The Mercury of the Romans was a derivative of a long line of information technologists. The oldest known reference to a Deity resembling Mercury was made by the Ancient Sumer. They described creatures known to them as Nephilim, meaning "lofty Ones" or "Those who came to Earth from Heaven".

The Sumer sculpted images of these beings as half bird and half man, they wrote extensively about how these beings travelled from Earth to Heaven and back at will. One possibility is that the Sumer wanted to make a clear statement that these man like beings could fly. One of the well documented stories details the fascination and desire the Nephilim had for human women and how they bred with them generating a race of super hybrids. The Hebrew Bible eludes to these events in Genesis chapter six. The Sumer's Nephilim became the Egyptian god Thoth. Thoth was depicted as having the head of an Ibis bird and the body of a man. A very close iteration of the Nephilim as described by the Sumer 2000 years earlier. Thoth was the Egyptian god that created writing, chronicled all knowledge and was the measurer
and recorder of time. Thoth was thought to be scribe to the gods and maintained a great library of scrolls. His images are prolific among the ruins of ancient Egyptian temples. Thoth always has one form of instrument or device in his hand or about his head. What these curious items are and their purpose may never be understood. Thoth evolved into the Greek god Hermes a thousand years on resuming his post as herald to the gods. Hermes carries messages from earth to the gods in Heaven. All of these figures carried an instrument called by the Romans a Caduceus. A staff with two snakes entwined around it. When real life Roman messengers carried important news or information across the battlefield to the opposing leadership they in fact bore a Caduceus. This provided complete protection for messengers, no one would dare harm them if they carried a Caduceus. The Sumerians were the first to document the appearance of the Nephilim and record the amazing and thought provoking behavior of a being that inspired many great empires. Were Mercury and all his progenitors spacemen? Were their behavior and capabilities patterned after an individual from a space fairing civilization that once lived on Earth? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is YES. The Ancient Sumer recorded many stories of the Nephilim, the Hebrew Bible refers to them as Fallen Angels and their mark on humanity has continued until today. Just like many other ancient artifacts that are taken for granted, they remain Mercurial until viewed through the filter of scientific curiosity. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author

The 60's Sci-Fi movie opus "Planet of the Apes" contains a profound and famous scene of three Ape judges confronted with irrefutable evidence of Human Technology and then striking the iconic pose of Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, and See No Evil. These three Ape judges refused to be persuaded by the facts. Today many ancient artifacts are confusing Scientists and bewildering authorities in all disciplines.

The precept of an ancient technologically advanced civilization dating back 35,000 to 50,000 years ago is not a consideration for contemporary science. A rock discovered in the Lanzhou province of China was found to contain an intricately machined shaft of metal. The stone is at least tens of thousands of years old and contains a screw that could have been made in a modern machine shop. The Chinese have studied it and have no explanation how such a modern piece of technology came to set inside a stone formed millennia ago. No theories were put forth by these scholars. Instead looking to outer space for an explanation for the existence of the mysterious rock. "Perhaps the machined metal is a relic from a nearby civilization in space", some of the researchers have been quoted as saying. A similar rock made the Russian newspapers recently. The stone contained a Nut and Bolt which was obviously there for quite some time. Nuts and Bolts are a fairly modern contrivance.
Another ancient belief buster are the hundreds of glass and crystal lenses that have been found in many ancient ruins around the world. Some of these precision ground lenses have been dated to 3500 b.c. and beyond. Optics of this caliber were not commonly available until the late 1500s. A ground lens was excavated from the Palace of the Assyrian King Sargon II who lived 800 years before Christ. The lens which sets in a British Museum is a perfect convex lens with a flat plane base. This lens was ground in a way known today as "Toroidal" the process was first invented in the 1900s. Roman authors Seneca and Cicero wrote of magnification and minute works of art produced under a magnifying glass. Cicero writes of a miniature version of the Iliad so small that it could fit inside a nutshell. It is from this the expression " in a nutshell" came into being after being passed on by Shakespeare in the play of Hamlet. Robert Temple best selling author writes extensively about OOPARTS (Out Of Place ARTifacts) and is a collector of ancient lenses. He writes about taking a sample from his collection and showing it to the Greek and Roman antiquities department of the British Museum. They immediately said it was a "fake" it was made of glass and they didn't make these back then. Had the lens been crystal it would have dated to 700 b.c. Temple had no doubt that it was crystal and had the lens analysed by the Natural History Museum which proved that the object was rock crystal, and hence genuine. The interesting part of the comment by the British Museum expert who insisted the lens was a fake and said none of this can be real is that Temple has come across this response many times. He calls it "consensus blindness". People agree not to see what they are convinced cannot exist. 'Everyone knows' that there was no optical technology in antiquity, so consequently when you come across it, staring you in the face, you go blind. End of conflict. Could an ancient worldwide society have made advanced optics and precision tooled metal? Did early man use these advanced artifacts left over after some global catastrophe? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is YES. It is possible that an ancient advanced civilization made these technologically advanced artifacts. If we could just open our minds enough to at least question the origins of these amazing creations we may be astounded by what we find.

Today the Enola Gay rests in the Smithsonian completely restored in factory new condition. But on August 6th 1945 Colonel Paul W. Tibbets Jr. climbed behind the controls of the most advanced Bomber in the world and headed for Hiroshima Japan. A Top Secret weapon was in the bomb bay of his Boeing B29 SuperFortress. A weapon that would forever change the course of human history and endeavour. The Atomic Age was born and Hiroshima was completely annihilated in moments using the power of the Sun. Amazingly this may have been the second time nuclear weapons were used in war.
Ancient Indian and Hebrew texts describe in great detail a war in which "Final Weapons"were used. The term "Final Weapon" used in the "Mahabharata" a 6500 year old religious text refers to a very powerful weapon that has harnessed the power of the Universe. The following is an except from the Mahabharata.

Gurka, flying a swift and powerful Vimana hurled a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as a thousand suns rose in all its splendour...a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds......the cloud of smoke rising after its first explosion formed into expanding round circles like the opening of a giant was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas. The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without apparent cause, and the birds turned white. After a few hours all foodstuffs were escape from this fire the soldiers threw themselves into streams to wash themselves and their equipment.
These passages are both horrific and compelling and would have meant nothing to us prior to 1945. These descriptions would have seemed fanciful and implausible.
In a region of India known as Rajasthan local officials discovered an area where very high rates of cancers and birth defects were occurring. A layer of ash with an extremely high level of radiation was excavated and the ruins of an ancient city were discovered below it. Officials believe the city was destroyed by an atomic blast that completely leveled the city and killed 500,000 people. It was subsequently determined that this dramatic event took place well over 12,000 years ago. When excavators had reached down to the street level, bodies were found holding hands and locked in embrace. The whole city was frozen in an instant in time. Atomic blasts produce glass and numerous glass spheres were discovered throughout the city. These spheres were thought to have been pottery that had been super heated during the explosion. In the Hebrew Bible in the book of Genesis the destruction of the "Cities of the Plain" are described. Sodom and Gomorrah two of these cities are wiped out in and instant by an all encompassing hail of fire and brimstone. A fire that rains down from the sky above and turns everyone into a pillar of salt. This depiction is not unlike the story in the Mahabharata and events after the blasts at Hiroshima. Most respected scientists would say these ancient references are just ambiguous details that could be made to fit into any modern context. A coincidental and amusing improbability. Could ancient man had the knowledge and expertise to build and deliver a nuclear device capable of killing a half million people? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is YES. The ancient pre-flood world has left us a roadmap filled with artifacts, written and oral history that continues to point to a world where an ultra advanced civilization covered the Earth. We are only now becoming aware of the amazing capabilities of these ancient people. What differences could they have had that would require the use of a "Final Weapon"? Just like in 1945 it must have seemed like a reasonable solution. ATLANTIUM.             Roc Hatfield/Author

"And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, which come of the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
- Numbers 13:33

The young intrepid Jack went up the beanstalk and discovered a world where everything was large. Jack was amazed at the Giants that dwelt at the top of his magic stalk of beans. The story of Jack and the Beanstalk as told by Edwin Sydney Hartland in 1890 reflects a plethora of both oral and written stories of giant men that roamed the earth in ancient times. The Hebrew Bible contains numerous references to giants. In the first book of Samuel the epic story of David and Goliath takes center stage 1000 years b.c. Great care is given to the description of Goliath, a nine foot tall warrior with a giant shield and sword. David eventually takes the massive giant out using just a smooth stone and a sling shot. One deft shot to Goliath's forehead and he is down. Goliath was a descendant of the Nephilim, a race of giants that inhabited the earth for thousands of years. Moses described these giants in the book of Genesis as the offspring of the "Sons of God" who came down from Heaven and mated with human women. The story of these giants doesn't stop in the days of the Bible. There are in fact numerous references to giant men in many ancient cultural texts. Aaron Wright found the Conneaut Giants in a burial mound on the Ohio plains in 1800. He reported that he found a race of giants buried in the mound and that the individuals were nine to ten feet in height. He further reported that the bones were proportionate to regular sized humans. A number of metal tools were also found near the mound. Fossilized bones of these giant men are surfacing all around the world. A giant femur bone was recently discovered in Turkey. The bone would be from an individual 10-12 feet tall and weighing over 500 pounds. The Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan wrote in 1520 of a race of giants that lived near the Patagonian coast. "One day, when no one was expecting it, we saw a giant, completely naked, by the sea. He danced and jumped and, singing, spread sand and dust over his head...He was so tall that the tallest among us reached only to his waist. He was truly well built...The captain named these kind of people Pataghoni. They have no houses but huts, like the Egyptians.
They live on raw meat and eat a kind of sweet root which they call capac. The two giants we had on board ship ate their way through a large basket of biscuits, and ate rats without skinning them. They used to drink a half bucket of water at once". One James Snyder found a giant human foot print frozen in stone along a trail near his home in the Cleveland National Forest. The footprint of a very large individual made thousands of years ago is evidence that these Nephilim inhabited every continent. One of the most amazing stories of giants in the Americas is told by Dr. F. Bruce Russell in 1931. Dr. Russell claimed to have discovered a network of large man made caverns along the California-Nevada-Arizona borders. The story reported by the San Diego Union explained how the good doctor fell into the caves while looking for gold in an old abandoned mine shaft. Once he regained his composure after falling he explored the caverns and discovered a number of giant mummies. The mummies were wearing suits made from some type of hair that he didn't recognize. He said the mummies were at least nine to ten feet in length and were lying near a number of articles. He seemed to believe that whoever built the cave city was very advanced. Curiously he claimed that he found a type of oven that appeared to use some kind of radio waves to cook. No microwaves in 1931. Did Dr. Russell see to many Buck Rodgers afternoon matinees? Was Ferdinand Magellan sea sick and hallucinating? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is NO. Hundreds of accounts throughout history have been recorded of the giant Nephilim. Many documented discoveries of fossils from these giants are now surfacing. It is possible that these giants ruled the earth long before a worldwide flood decimated their ranks. ATLANTIUM.
