I have my own theory about where Atlantis truly was, at least the most visible parts of it from the land of the greatest known historian on Atlantis
from antiquity... "beyond the pillars of Hercules", which were said to be overlooking The Straights of Gibraltar, as Plato had said in his ancient
writings. Just beyond that point, I saw what appears to be a huge, sunken Caldera, from an extreme volcanic eruption off of the cost of Portugal as I
zoomed all the way down to the lowest view on the Google-Earth Satellite Map online.
I further believe that Atlantis may have been so vast that it may have strewn remnants of it over a wide area of the Atlantic Ocean as the volcano
was most probably caused by, or in conjunction with, a huge earthquake or earthquakes that split an ancient fault-line around the mid-Atlantic and
sank a literal continent in pieces.
My theory would easily explain why there are pieces of Atlantis scattered seemingly EVERYWHERE under the ocean, which may make many people's claims
to its' location at least Partially correct. I believe that a massive eruption of that magnitude may well have been easily witnessed from the
Straights of Gibraltar and later recorded by Plato, who reported on the phenomena in a serious, eventful tone and not at all like a fictional
My second related theory is that, as I also believe, in an unknown future geophysical time, all land will have broken and slipped under the waves as
a combined steady battering of our soils from the large-scale denuding of forests, shore erosion, river-way erosion, sinkholes, the crumbling of
"falls" that actually have "fallen" and crumbled like Niagara-Iguacu-Victoria-etc., and also the crumbling of Butes, Mesas, Plateaus, crumbling
Mountains, Landslides, Mudslides, and etc. along with cracking Fault-lines, Earthquakes, Volcano explosion/implosion and crumbling, Tectonic Plate
slippage, and our own stupidity in mismanaging our natural resources and not replanting enough trees, etc. due to urban sprawl we will eventually
reach a point where it all goes down beneath the waves.
