Two extraordinary expeditions were initiated in 2004 & 2006 to find what remains of the First Garden of Eden, on the bottom of the ocean near Cyprus. These expeditions, which sent sensitive probes one mile down into the eastern Mediterranean, were led by Urantian scholar Robert Sarmast with the crucial assistance of our guest, Captain Robert Bates. The results of this research were detailed in Sarmast’s book, Discovery of Atlantis. Few people are aware of important new discoveries since these earlier efforts. Bates takes a fresh look at these artifacts in his new book, Eden-Atlantis Project.

The 2004 expedition was privately funded. The second was funded, filmed, and broadcast by the History Channel. Bates lead the expedition in 2004 and consulted with History Channel in 2006. After 15 years of combing through the results, Bates offers a remarkable new picture of the data acquired. The marine archeology department of Scripps Institute is "excited" by the discoveries made so far.

Capt. Robert Bates has led a distinguished 60 year career as an officer in the Coast Guard and U.S. Merchant Marine. Among his many activities at sea, he has served as captain on the University of Rhode Island research vessel ENDEAVOR, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute research vessel OCEANUS, and as captain of the survey vessel USNS HARKNESS for bottom mapping in the Persian Gulf. He served on the adjunct faculty at the University of Connecticut, the United States Coast Guard Academy and the STAR Center in Dania Beach, Florida. He founded Batek Marine, a maritime consulting firm and published the book: The Authority to Sail: The History of US Maritime Licenses and Documents (www.theauthoritytosail.com).
