I'm not as confident in its existence as you, Status. I think that there were great civilisations in the past that we don't know about, but thats
the thing... we don't know about them. We get this legendry story from Plato. From the best account I have, he overheard it in his youth. Socrates
was telling his father, maybe enjoying a bit too much to drink, and tells this story of a once great nation, to explain how the people who he met in
Egypt could create such marvelous pyramids (which in those days shone in gold) despite not seeming as civilised as the culture in his homeland.
