Born on April 6, 1949 in Calgary, Alberta, Rand Flem-Ath came to B.C. in 1967. In 1977, Flem-Ath began corresponding with Charles Hapgood whose research had been supported by Albert Einstein. Hapgood believed that the Earth periodically experiences dramatic shifts of its entire outer shell. When the Sky Fell, which Rand Flem-Ath co-authored with Rose Flem-Ath, applied the theory of earth crust displacement to the problem of Atlantis and suggested that the lost island continent became Antarctica after the last displacement. The Atlantis Blueprint applied the ECD theory to the placement of sacred sites around the earth with Egypt's Great Pyramid serving as the Prime Meridian.
