Discussion 1 to Meditation 280
Update on Sarmast's Atlantis

In the course of routine review of old material, I came across the article on Atlantis from 2004. So, I decided to look at what had happened in the past few years.

In the original article, based on the news reports, I called Robert Sarmast an archeologist; actually he is not. He is now variously identified as an author, architect and explorer.

He has a website at Discovery of Atlantis where the status reports seem to end in 2007. At the end of those updates, a link is provided to a blog - presumably for further information, but the blog seems abandoned and possibly in the hands of another person.

A couple of TV specials were made a few years ago on Sarmast's search. And apparently he appeared on John Stewart once. Otherwise, Sarmast seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. Like Atlantis.

An article written in November 2004 (about the same time as Meditation 280) on livescience.com called Sarmast's discovery "completely bogus." There has been nothing discovered since then to change that characterization.

As with many of these mythological discoveries, Sarmast's Atlantis discovery was really about selling a book.
