I am sure their are many threads on this subject, but I'd like to post my own theory, so here it goes:
Around 30,000BC, a supernatural Race travelled through the Milky Way. They settled on Mars, the first Atlantis, when the planet was dying. Because
they built settlements their, the planet got worse and worse, until the point where the atmosphere weakened.
The great oceans drained into the core of Mars and froze, the Altantian settlers died, and over this time, remains have passed away. The great
Atlantians built Pyramids on Mars:
The capital city sank into the oceans of Mars before they froze,a nd has decayed over 30,000 years.
The remaing Atlantians left Mars and headed for Earth, seeing a well conditioned planet for them to settle on, they built their culture up again, but
with less technology.
They created the Aztec and Egyptian Pyramids, the earliest of which was created the same time as the Aztec Pryamids in Centeral America:
They then created the mighty sloped Pyramids in Egypt:
The tale passed on was dying, and the elders of Atlantis (Mars) told of a city that sank into the sea...
The Atlantians were a much earlier version of us, but with amazing brainpower.
EXTENSION: The Stargate Issue
Many people here have said that their have been findings of Stargates, so I extended this theory for the Stargate aswell.
The people of Atlantis needed a method of transport, so the Stargate's were created and left in great pyramids, one on Mars, and 2 on Earth (Egpty
and Mexico- Pyramids).
The elders wished to keep the world of Atlantis secret, they didn't beleive that the new age was ready for advanced technolgy, they were to reckless,
so they buried the Stargates for all time...
