sorry, i don't buy the stated age of 9300BC. There is tons of evidence that there is no written history earlier than 4600 bc(when noah's flood
my thoughts on atlantis are pretty complicated....first off, what i trust is such-
My world view revolves around the bible. For a book to accurately fortell the rise and fall of babylon, persia, greece and rome, the fall of rome and
the division of the empire into 10 kingdoms, the rise of the papacy even geting the number of years (1260) the popes would rule over europe and the
bible does this from 600BC(book of Daniel).
From 100AD(revelation) the bible tells of 3 world empires till the end of the world.. it starts off with the red dragon empire which was guilty of
trying to kill Christ as a child and crucifying him... this power gave it's seat and authority to the beast(papal rome) who ruled for 1260 years till
1798.... at the wounding of "the Beast", the lamb like world power would grouw up out of the earth(the same place Christianity would flee to escape
persecution in Europe. this is none other than the USA and is the last world power listed.
anyway, seeing as the bible accurately does this with absolute 100% accuracy and much more(the prophecy in revelation about the french revolution is
down right amazing) shows its divine origin. No book can do what the bible does plain and simple.... so with this in mind, i dont trust faulty men in
telling me the age of the earth, especially egypt, china and the sumerians. Sorry but many of the pagan civilizations have no issues with lying and
many wanted to inflate the age of their civilizations to make them seem more ancient. The God who burned Mt. Sinai black, destroyed Egypt and kept the
Israelite's alive for 40years in a lifeless desert said the earth is 6000 years old, i trust this source.
much of our early world history can easily be explained if you actually reasoned through the history recorded. Humans pre-flood lived much longer and
grew quite a bit taller than humans do today. This is easily proven through genetics. we are very much inferior to humans of the past as each
generation is 10% WEAKER than their parents with over 100.000 new mutations to the human genome. Anyway, Noah had 3 sons who outlived something like
15 generation of their kids....imagine seeing a man who is larger than life, and older than your grand parents,grandparents? Noah and his sons i
believe are immortalized in pagan cultures as the chief gods like Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. The bible records that people idolized a tyrant king
Nimrod who got lucky in the genitics lottery and ended up as tall as his preflood ancestors... these people who followed him turned away from the
knowledge of God and fell into adoring myths pretty early on!! Nimrod started the city of babylon and started building the tower of babble .... it
was during his life that God confused the languages causing people to finally spread out over the earth, but not before these fallen away people
adoped the pagan trinity.... Nimrod on his death became viewed as the sun god, his wife serimus claimed she was impregnated by her husband who had
asended into the sun and she gave birth to the son of the sun god tammuiz on december 25.... of course when she died, she was viewed as the moon
when the languages were confused, this nonsense was carried around the world. which is why you will find these elements in nearly all cultures.
anyway, as atlas was a descendant of Poseidon, it is clear Atlantis was a settlement only a few 100 years after the flood when the earth was still
very unstable. Land masses were still raising or lowering and settling, the numerous cities below sea level are proof that things were moving around.
and ancient records show the climate was massively changing. i fully believe the eye of the Sahara is the city. It matches the size, shape, mountains
to the north, an opening to the south and even ancient maps location. It's current altitude is not relevant when considering how land masses have
moved around (as underwater settlements show)
