An NHNE News Flash:
Atlantis-Bimini Update
Tuesday, October 28, 1997

In July of this year, Aaron Du Val, President of THE EGYPTOLOGY SOCIETY IN MIAMI, announced that ruins of ancient temples, which were built over 12,000 years ago, had been discovered near Bimini. Du Val scheduled, and later canceled, several public meetings that were supposed to make these discoveries public. To date, there is still no hard evidence to support Du Val's claims that ancient artifacts, which he believes are from the legendary continent of Atlantis, actually exist, nor have any new dates been established for public meetings. In recent conversations with NHNE (10/25/97), Du Val said that he saw the ruins "with his own eyes" and they are, indeed, authentic. Du Val continues to say that detailed information about the site and ruins will be withheld until the site can be adequately protected. Du Val is planning to send out a news release on the current status of this project in the near future. As soon as we receive it, we will pass it along to all of you.

In the meantime, we have also been in contact with officials from the MIAMI MUSEUM OF SCIENCE. According to them, our coverage of Du Val's reported discovery has caused many people to contact the museum. Stating that they do not officially endorse, or refute, the EGYPTOLOGY SOCIETY'S claim, they have asked that all future enquiries be directed to Aaron Du Val:

In addition, both Du Val and museum officials have clarified their relationship with one another. While THE MIAMI MUSEUM OF SCIENCE does not officially endorse, or refute, Du Val's claims, THE EGYPTOLOGY SOCIETY IN MIAMI is affiliated with the museum. Along with six other affiliates, THE EGYPTOLOGY SOCIETY IN MIAMI holds regular meetings at the museum, receives their mail there, and has a contract with the museum to share research and be mutually supportive.
