I’ll be recording the podcast a little later in the week, but I thought I might ask my readers to participate in a little contest. It’s very simple: in the upcoming show, I’ll be talking a little bit about the legend of Atlantis. I recently watched this video, and was completely awestruck by just how ludicrous and ridiculous the claims are. In fact, they are so out there, my contest is to dare anyone to make a claim that is even more outrageous than the ones in this ‘documentary’. My entry goes a little something like this:
The lost continent of Atlantis is actually inhabited by lilliputians. In fact, the story of Gilligan is really just based on ancient texts regarding the tiny size of this lost world. The continent never sank; it is, in fact, the size of a soccer ball, and has merely never been detected. We know its location to be somewhere in the Atlantic, but beyond that, we can only guess. These tiny, technologically advanced humanoids are the descendants of an ancient race of space dwellers who were previously as big as mountains. When they saw the earth, they wished to colonize it, but realizing they were too big, they used their understanding of magnets to shrink themselves down in a device called ‘The Minutron’.
I’m not entirely convinced this is actually less silly than what the video proclaims…it’s up to you to do better!
