They planned one game, then realised after they started that they were never going to fit that much story into one game in the time they had, so decided to do a trilogy.

Go do some research on both subjects and you will see, there are plenty of threads talking about the subject, and plenty of books and websites devoted to it. And if you have played TRA it should be becoming pretty obvious what the connection is.

Yes, it is becoming obvious I was just wondering about that same connection in real life. I believe in totemism, thus I believe in Atlantis... Why? Well, if people could 'once' change the gene of one into hybrid, then they could surely make an island sink 'over one day and one night' as said in a book... Anyway, where do you suggest I start looking?

EDIT:

It isn't well said on wikipedia, but I want to be sure that you get genuine info on totemism (for those who don't know what it is of course )

Totemism is simply 'rendering' (nowadays believed only in rendering) a human body with animal body parts. Ancient Egyptians believed in it mostly. So did Ancient Greeks, and Ancient Persians. Here's a more 'genuine' explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totemism

Not really a lot to do with Atlantis and Nephilim. Simply googling combinations of the words Angels, fallen, watchers, Atlantis will lead to dozens of leads, l am sure you are used to researching such things, A 2 minute perusal lead to this page. Really if you are interested in such connections in the games it is not hard to do a bit of research on your own.

A connection between Atlantis and the fallen angels is hardly new, and we have been given enough hints to make an educated guess about the connection between nephilim and Atlanteans, they are the same thing.

hey i read the stuff on the website through the link you provided, seems that there's a pretty strong similiarity between nephilim & atlanteans. the nephilim sounded really vicious & barbaric

Thanks, Aussie. I usually research stuff from libraries ... In my city, the libraries are centuries old... We have books before the Soviet Union Now, I know some data are inaccurate, but at least they back up my theories... Maybe this is VERY off topic, but... Meh, thanks, for the link I'll research the net from now on, but I've always had trouble with Google... Anyway, thanks again.

By the way.. Nephilim are hardly the same as Atlanteans. Nephilim, they come from a curse, known in the bible (by known I mean coded). But the Atlanteans flourished far before the new era... This is interesting though... Maybe Christ was something waiting to come on top for centuries... OmG, I must not be making sense, excuse my spam

EDIT: God, this is interesting info !

Though I disagree with some things... Why would God create man, leave him to create his own world... Make him powerful and knowledgeable, but leave some things for him not to be known.. That just doesn't make sense.. I love history 9_9
