The New Atlantis

Read by Bill Boerst

(4.4 stars; 75 reviews)

In 1623, Francis Bacon expressed his aspirations and ideas in New Atlantis. Released in 1627, this was his creation of an ideal land where people were kind, knowledgeable, and civic-minded. Part of this new land was his perfect college, a vision for our modern research universities. Islands he had visited may have served as models for his ideas. ( Summary by Wikipedia ) (1 hr 37 min)



(5 stars)

It was an enjoyable story, though the description leaves out the first half of it being about a unknown land of Christian peoples. The description of the scientific laboratory is not until the last two chapters and is only part off the story.

The truth is stranger than the supposed “fiction”. Well read Sir!

The New Atlantis by Francis Bacon and reader are life savers

(5 stars)

The New Atlantis by Francis Bacon and reader are life savers. when midnight came i thought this is Sunday this is our day of worship BUT it was not so and throughout the day i checked in. there were beautiful contemporary music 🎶 last year NOW I KNOW THAT MY SAVIOR LIVETH 🎶 🎤 🎵 GLORY HALLELUJAH was expected weeks ago but i guess because of coronavirus it was more beneficial to be contemporary. i was happy that the Bible Pure And Simple was on my cell signal didn’t allow me to follow church ⛪️ online. Al called after the “in 🚗 🚙 car” service they had dear sausage caught in GA a week or so. i love free food 🥘 BUT at long last i started THE NEW ATLANTIS the “ship wrecked” prayed GOD who delivered them. then gave GOD 🙏 praises made me smile and thankful that HE didn’t let coronavirus get me, i was cleaning and putting things in order despite everything going wrong knowing that GOD IS IN CONTROL FRANCIS BACON had an utopia thing going on which reminds me of JULES VERNE’s MYSTERIOUS ISLAND 🌴 read by MARK F SMITH. it was lovely and hopeful to be lost at sea 🌊 and found haven not to subsist but to live and flourish just like king Salomon, Shakespeare MR BACON spoke of so many new inventions that could have not been in his time and now they’re here and in our past. men should love the new Atlantis with no commitment marriage maybe later life. OUTSTANDING MARVELOUS BEAUTIFUL sweet❤️
