Some are now calling the circles "The Symbol of Atlantis".

Anyway - and strictly for entertainment purposes - here are some more concentric circle whatchamacallits:

Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Old City of Jerusalem. The site is venerated as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where Jesus was crucified.

Empyrean by Gustave Doré: The Empyrean was used as a name for the firmament, and in Christian literature, notably the Divine Comedy, for the dwelling-place of God, the blessed, celestial beings so divine they are made of pure light, and the source of light and creation.

Amazing! (all the images in this thread)

I have a copy of Olaus Rudbeck's "Atland" which is a 3000 page treatise in Swedish expounding his ideas and findings regarding Atlantis in the late 1600's. Interestingly, he believed that Swedish was the language of Adam and Eve. Seeing that Scandinavian languages have changed over time, certainly to a reasonable extent in the last 1000 years, it may be arguable that Danish rather than Swedish is nearest to that spoken by the Edenites.
