Or maybe these people are right, maybe this was Atlantis the Richat Structure, or whatever you want to call it now a days. But if it were then that
means that we don't know as much as we think about the world some 12,000 years ago. the whole thing just going by the outer rings, is larger then
cities like Seattle and London almost twice or 3 times as large.
And if it was like Plato described and an actual city, oh ya, it would have been much more impressive then today's cities. But now its definitely not
coastal, and not really a low land even though it seems to be in a sort of bowl like landmass, and considering that the oceans were supposed to be a
bit lower then because of the ice age. Either those were some massive massive waves, if the ocean was at the current location.
Or if in its day it was located closer to the ocean, And if it was Atlantis. Well, something more must have been going on back then then an ice age
and lowered oceans considering the oceans must have been higher. Which just means we don't know nowhere near as much as we like to think.
Or? Well its anybody guess now. But 12,000 years aint much, pretty sure then in the next 12,000 its just as likely that even today more civilizations
will rise and fall. And if you get into the millions of years. Forget about it may as well look into the chicken bones or sheep guts to see the
future like our ancestors once did.
And off course there was a part two, and part 3 which I missed. But I think there are more then a few threads on the Richat Structure on this site
from years ago, including the original people who put the theory about the Richat Structure, or the eye of the desert, that the guy links in his
But ya it would change some things in the history books and archeological classifications, if it was Atlantis at that time period. From the Eye in
the sky, to the ice in the north, what the hell does anybody know anyways.
I am confused. If Athens was knocking about at the same time as Atlantis (9000BCish?) how on earth did they manage to somehow reform so many of
thousands of years later with the same name. I mean didn't the Myceneans dominate most of mainland Greece for a number of years? Or was this added to
the story to make it relevant to the Athenians?
Cracking post Slayer, I tend to agree the mythos surrounding sunken cities in some form of natural cataclysm appears to be a norm across cultures. I
imagine their stories would have had an element of mystery and wonder just as it does today. Seems we are just fueled by science fiction and fantasy
though. There is a site in south-east Asia on the coast which is literally half sunken, huge stone walls etc which is a fantastic representation of
Saw somebody mention Catahoyluk in this post as well... That is a true mystery.
