Product information "Theories Of Atlantis Dagon Longsleeve White"
The Dagon L/S tee is seen here on a 5' 11" model who is wearing a medium. Our long sleeve tees are on a slightly thicker, heavier stock and fit a tad more baggy than our short sleeves.Dagon, was a strange figure from early Mesopotamian religious mythology who was depicted as an eerie half man, half fish character. He was known by many other names, like Oannes or Nimrod and is credited by these religions to be a great civilizer who "brought great knowledge" to his people and taught them math, geometry and "how to build cities". It is proposed by some theorists that Dagon was actually one of the survivors of the lost civilization that is often referred to as Atlantis, after a major cataclysm completely destroyed it. The theory is that survivors of this catastrophe were scattered and made landfall at different locations around the globe, establishing new civilizations and teaching the natives of those areas the basics of masonry, agriculture, mathematics, etc. A theory that seems wild at first glance, but the more research one does they will discover a lot of similarities in the different religious myths of cultures around the world. And one common thread is a story about a god-like figure appearing in each culture's distant past and civilizing it's people, teaching them the basics of agriculture, masonry and so forth. It has been proposed that perhaps the fish-like appearance of Dagon refers to his ability to navigate the seas as a sailor in a time far before man had learned to build ships. Similar stories surround the gods of the central and south American civilizations of the Mayans and Aztecs with their gods Quetzalcoatl and Kulkulkan. And one very interesting commonality is the appearance of these gods holding a very strange purse-like article in their hand, an object that is too obscure in shape and size to be coincidentally depicted in Mesopotamian, Assyrian, Babylonian and also Mayan religious carvings. This hand-bag of sorts is called a "Kursa" bag and is depicted in religious carvings from Mesopotamia, Central America and even Turkey. Civilizations that supposedly never interacted or knew of one another's existence. Yet we see them depicting their religious figures with similar attire and attributes while also shown carrying an eerily similar article who's purpose is still unknown.
