The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

Atlantis For Real?

A scientist from a French university is proposing a possible resting place for the mythical (?) continent of Atlantis.
Of course, as everyone knows, Atlantis was the home of a ruling class of alien beings who created humans in a lab. Then, there was a pole shift, due to either a solar explosion, polar ice or alien bombardment which caused the crust of the earth to slide around and put Atlantis to the South Pole and assume the name "Antarctica," while the survivors of Atlantis sailed forth to settle on lands previously underwater where they founded civilizations in Central America, South America, Egypt, Europe and Africa. This explains how supposedly disparate civilizations could have so much in common (pyramids, serpent legends, light-skinned gods with red hair, end-of-the-world prophecies, etc.). It doesn't really matter because according to the Mayan Calendar, it's all going to end in a fiery cataclysm on December 21, 2012, so it's all a moot point.
You could believe that, or you could believe something that isn't so far-fetched and crazy . . . like the September 11th attacks being a complete and total surprise to our government. Yeah, that's much easier for me to swallow.

Er... my father actually believes that aliens were here first, so this kind of thinking is second nature to me.

I guess that explains a lot.
