......Said to be the center of commerce and trade, this location would be a perfect location to connect all of the europe, the americas, and
I usually suscribe to the Carribean theory for its location, but this just popped into my head, so I figured I'd post it and see what everyone else
This is an excellent topic for consideration, but I must wonder about the Center of Atlantis. Was there any indications of the Dimensions of the
'Mountian' and how high this may have been?
I have great difficulties with the man-made part. It was not even man-inhabited at one point. Eventually, Yes, it became man-inhabited.
And, to clear up how this could be done, think of that fantastic movie with Kevin Costner acting as some Fish Freak Guy. Waterworld, right? How many
Oscars did that win??
Anyways, they had Floating cities or Towns, but nothing that can compare to Atlantis.
But that brings up an other consideration. What if it was a vessel, instead? .
As for how big it would be. What if it was 1500 Miles long/wide or around, and did not sink, but left???
Since you where speculating, and I reviewed the remarks, I thought I throw these out there for options to think of..
As for personally, I always have believed it stretched across the Atlantic from the Biminis to the Canary Isles, and likely from the Amazon River, to
the Emerald Ilses. This would also have included areas within the Med Basin of Trade and relations. Recently, I have learned of what the North Sea was

And frankly, I have always had difficulties with it sinking. It is much easier to think it flew away, than trying to figureout where it sunk, and why
can't we find it.
We see evidence in the Med, Around the Canaries, and along the Iberian Coasts, up to Ireland, off the coast of Florida, in the Carribbean, and in the
We spend way to much time seeking something that is no longer here, but will return one day.
Have a good evening, and again, Floating is a good thought.
