Here is where Atlantis is/was....
plato supposedly found out form a guy who's dad heard it from an egyptian priest if i remember properly
and it could easily make sense as words are commonly misinterpretted, sometimes deliberately, and the meaning is entirely different, i wonder if our
deluge will be of water or fire
Plato was told the tale by an Egyptian priest, Solon, and was quite educated in other languages, so misinterpretation is unlikely on such a grand
scale, but more likely on conversions such as names (as Plato admits), and measurements, etc. that would be culturally unique. Read the link above,
and the links on that site as well....
The big point of confusion, is similar to New York City, in the state of New York. Atlantis was the name of the capital city of the kingdom, as well
as the continent of South America. It is the capital that sank, not the continent. (which is pretty easy to follow, as there is no tectonic evidence
of any submerged continent, especially of the size Plato mentions). The Altiplano fits the bill exactly, point by point.... I should also mention
(for those claiming it is only a morality tale), that at least 3 times in the brief text, Plato makes it clear that this is a history, and a factual
event, not a story.
