The Sleeping Prophet

Considered the most gifted psychic of 20th century, Edgar Cayce was supposedly able to access the present, future, and past all from an unconscious state of channeling. Most of his readings(over 14,000) were recorded by his wife and dealt with numerous issues including health, history, reincarnation, astrology, and prophecy. If given the name and place of an individual he was able to read their body and suggest cures usually in the form of natural remedies. Many of his natural remedies are considered quackery and work no better than the placebo effect. He also predicted(vaguely) many future events with some accuracy including WW2, stock market crash, civil rights movement, and JFK assassination. Many events he predicted did not occur including 1933 being a good year(great depression) a pole shift in the year 2000 and cataclysmic destruction of California and the New York area in the late 90's.

He also spoke about historical events with some accuracy including relevant information about the Essenes before the dead sea scrolls and geographical information including that the Nile once connected to the Atlantic Ocean. Some of historical readings have proven to be controversial including the dating of the Great Pyramid of Giza to the year 10,490 BC and the existence of a technologically advanced civilization known as Atlantis. Cayce claimed that Atlantis would rise up in 1968 which is attributed to the discovery of "Bimini Road" in the Bahamas as funded by his organization the ARE. Cayce also claimed that the records of Atlantis would be discovered under the right paw of the Sphinx. Although there is a confirmed chamber beneath the right paw it has yet to explored.
