The Lost World Religion – from Atlantis to Paganism
I finally got this video out! It's one hour long, and has taken a lot of work to put together. I wanted to give a big picture overview of the theory I present in my book The Ancient Religion of the Sun.

So I decided to bring them together in one place. These experiences happened in waking life, dreams, meditation, visions, in answer to prayer, and out-of-body experiences.
