About The Book

Maps, Myths & Paradigms is a cartographic adventure that begins as a casual investigation into a curious but unlikely claim that an ancient civilization charted the Antarctic continent. The investigation that ensues leads the reader down a trail of mystery and intrigue revealing a series of fresh observations and new discoveries surrounding ancient maps, mythical lost civilizations, and modern geological paradigms.

Come along as we:
  • Revisit ancient maps of Antarctica revealing startling new evidence supporting their authenticity;
  • Discover a 2,000-year-old map on the bottom of one world and the world’s largest impact crater atop another; and finally,
  • Chart the rise of Atlantis from the depths of myth and legend and the fall of a modern paradigm from the heights of scientific consensus.

Observations and Discoveries:

  • An accurate depiction of Antarctica’s Carney and Siple Islands lying off the coast of a sixteenth century portrayal of Western Antarctica bolsters the possibility that an ancient civilization charted the continent;

  • A copy of a long-lost 2,000-year-old Roman map, Agrippa’s Orbis Terrarum, is discovered mysteriously affixed to the bottom of a sixteenth century globe;

  • A new site is posited for Atlantis based on the stringent geographical layout, dimensions, and scale set forth in the writings of Plato;

  • The remains of Genesis, the world’s largest impact crater measuring 715 miles in diameter, are discovered lying at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean;

  • The Genesis Hemispheric Impact Structure (GHIS) is revealed—a vast concentric pattern of compression and shear fracturing extending out from and entirely around Genesis that comprises and encompasses nearly half of Earth’s continental crust; and finally,

  • A theory for a new Earth dynamic is proposed, Catastrophic Ocean Planet Hydro-Equilibrial Expansion (COPHEE), which may have been responsible for the demise of the Atlantean empire and could prove to be the demise of plate tectonics.

Agrippa's Orbis Terrarum

Agrippa's long-lost 2,000-year-old world map is discovered affixed to the bottom of Johannes Schöner's 1515 globe. The find proves that Schöner, like others of his day, depicted new lands using ancient maps as templates. The find also lends support to the legitimacy of ancient maps of Antarctica.

Kamchatka Origins

Kamchatka is a fragment of Asia and not the product of magmatic upwelling caused by subduction. This simple discovery would lead to the refutation of plate tectonics and the proposal of a new Earth dynamics theory: Catastrophic Ocean Planet Hydro-Equilibrial Expansion (COPHEE).

Genesis Impact Crater

Located atop our planet, Genesis—a 715-mile diameter crater—is discovered resting at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. Though apparently split in two along a radial fracture, key components associated with impact craters remain which aid in the identification process.


Further supporting the existence of the Genesis Impact crater, there exists the  Genesis Hemispheric Impact Structure (GHIS), paralleling arcs comprising both the world's largest and highest mountain ranges and the largest and deepest inland bodies of water.
