Just as a quick aside. 
The Egyptian and Mayan pantheons got linked to Atlantis in the 70s by Erich von Daniken (Chariots of the Gods) if I remember correctly.
The general idea is that the Egyptians and Mayans couldn’t have built the Pyramids and the Mayan equivalent by themselves.  So they had help from Plaedians space aliens who once lived in Atlantis.
I’m taking this from memory so forgive any errors.

I can’t find my copy of Chariots of the Gods. I now wonder if I ever read it. Hmm, maybe not. Maybe there is still some hope for me… :grin:

Von Daniken is quite prolific.  I don’t recall if Chariots of the Gods was the correct book responsible for the Atlantis nonsense but I am pretty certain it was Von Daniken.  I’ll dig out my books and see if I can find which book it was.
