I bought a book recently after skimming through the back a bit, and thinking it might be good, but now I'm not so sure.
It's called Egyptian Myths and Mysteries "Lectures" by Rudolf Steiner.

So far the author seems to be obsessing over the legends of Atlantis. 'Saying that the "Atlantians" started all civilizations, and their cultures. Huh??
Atlantis is fascinating and all, but looking at known (though filtered) historical facts there is no way all of humanity started from the mythological oceanic civilization. Makes no sense to me. Does the author mean this metaphorically? Something from the subconscious of human kind?

Here's one sentence that starts it all: "If we look back clairvoyantly (sp?) into primeval times, we come to a point where tremendous catastrophe, caused by water forces, took place on our earth and fundamentally altered it's face."
How does that even make sense? "If we look back clairvoyantly". My mind fell asleep after reading that. I still get a headache trying to figure out what he means by this. If I'm missing something and any of you know what it means, please.. do tell.

After the first few pages of reading that nonsense I'm wondering if I should continue reading this . I remember reading a few things in the back that seemed worthwhile to continue reading about. I'm still going wow just thinking about it.

Bad book, or good book?
