My theory on Atlantis .


Your theory is apparently based on your imagination and a complete lack of any credible research.
Plato wasn't a historian, he was a philosopher and clearly if you'd actually read Critias or Timaeus, you would understand that he was using it as an allegory.

Some key details have led me to a theory of what happened to the lost city. In Plato's dialogues he says that the city was laid out in a circle, which struck him as odd. He stated in one of these dialogues that "I have never seen anything like what I saw in that city, the libraries had books and scrolls with knowledge of the galaxy, the technology was greater than that of anything that was readily available in Greece."

Can you source that please?

The Minoan Empire really fits the description. Especially if you look at the details from the Egyptian point of view (people from the sea indeed)

If you think Crete and the Minoans fit Plato's description, then you are unaware of what Plato's description says.

What my theory is suggesting is that the city is atop of the ship which lay beneath the sea, which would be why Plato didn't mention anything of thrusters, because he couldn't see them underwater.

He could use his diving gear no?

The Egyptians traded with the Minoan empire and may have hired their troops to help them during the New Kingdom. In addition, they were well-liked enough that one of Ramses II's palaces had a large section of wall done in Minoan style (with bull leapers.) They would have said "Minoan" if they meant Minoan. It's possible that they also supplied troops to Egypt (or at least ships) on several occasions.

The Hyksos ("Nine Bows") on the other hand were semi-nomadic tribes from Palestine and points east who had chariot technology but not shipbuilding technology. Current thinking (due to lack of destruction and population loss) was that Manetho's tale of invasion is overblown and what happened was immigrants coming in to trade and changing the culture of cities to Hyksos and obtaining land and property through purchase, causing the cities to become "un-Egyptian". Local rulers then would declare emancipation, which wouldn't please Egypt.

And, when you look at the artifacts in detail, it's clear that the Hyksos material is not derived from Minoan material. The two are very stylistically different and other details (such as the burials of the elite class) do not match Hyksos with Minoans. Crete did not develop chariot technology (it's not a good place for chariots or horses but the Hyksos were prominent users of both.

Neither Plato nor Socrates visited Atlantis.

Have you read the original source (in translation)? If not, you should.

Its not a theory, its a hypothesis, it becomes a theory when its been accepted as valid scientifically
Don't hold your breath

Uhuh, well I found this old Greek photo of Atlantis on a credible site (crystalinks) and that is clearly Plato in the foreground

So unless you can provide photographic proof to the contrary, I think this evidence trumps your belief...

Something like this maybe but on more of a grandesque scale?




The question begs through where did it sink or where did it go?

Didn't you know the Atlanteans had time-travelling technology?

Oh so they had nuclear weapons back then, but you won't credit them with cameras
Obviously, you have never read the works of David Hatcher Childress and Zechariah Sitchin or you would have known that

Nah. Atlantis -- the city on the continent -- was located just about where the white arrow points here. Just south and east of where the Azores are now.

Good luck finding any trace of it though. It really got slammed when the whole plateau sunk.

Much smaller than Plato's description.

Yeah, but it fits so many of the other things in his description, like the tops of the mountains that are now islands. Naturally, using old sources, he was going to get some things right and some things wrong. It's a helluva lot better match than Santorini, and it has the advantage of being a logical and practical place for the city to have existed. Along a river running from the mountains through a fairly large fertile plain. Within a large, protected bay, perfect for developing sailing skills. That's where I'd put it. You might even have those elephants (mammoths) transported from the northern regions to help you build it.
