Prior to Cayce's time, the theories of the origin of New World racial types were speculative.  Popular views included sources ranging from Atlanteans to Jews to Vikings.  In the scientific community, Hrdlicka's view of exclusively Asian origin dominated.  By 1933, however, opinion was shifting.  Earnest Hooton of Harvard University pointed out that, although the Indians are homogeneous in a number of characteristics, they differ widely in others.  Hooton remarked in 1040, in a chapter
of the book THE MAYA AND THEIR NEIGHBORS,  that Mayan skeletons from a well at the site of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan were not very different from Middle Eastern skeletons of the Old World and were not very Mongoloid.  The diversity could be explained either as differentiation out of a single type that entered the New World (that is, the Mongoloid type) or as the perpetuation of existing varieties among several original groups of immigrants (this would be consistent with the Cayce Atlantis story, as well as with other explanations), W.W. Howells of the Univerity of Wisconsin reviewed the status of this idea in another chapter of the same book, and felt that the bulk of the evidence pointed to a primarily Asian racial type.  He noted, however, that especially in Native Americans of the Eastern United States, evidence also points to affinities with the white racial type.  Thus, even during Cayce's lifetime, opinion had begun to change.

In the following years, to Cayce's death in 1945 and beyond, numerous findings clustered between 10,000 and 9,000 BC convinced most archaeologists that people had entered the New World in this time frame and spread rapidly.  Although these dates closely matched Cayce's, no older sites to confirm Cayce's tales of earlier migrations had been found; and Atlantis as a possible site of human origin was not seriouly considered.
