I hope I put this in the right topic.


I kind of want to take a poll. Where does everyone think Atlantis is or more probably was?

Altiplano, Bolivia...(for the city), with South America as the continent.
www.geocities.com...

That's my bet. Location fits ALL of Plato's points, measurements, has the alternating belts of land and sea, a canal to the sea, red/white/black building blocks, etc.

Also, one should read Plato's writings, and especially clue in on two things...
1. He states three times it's a factual story.
2. He states that he is assigning Greek names and ideas to make it easier for his audience to absorb...this is why the temples are to Greek gods, etc.

Nowhere. I believe it is a fairytale, propaganda created by Plato for the amusement of the people. Inspiration for this mythical kingdom that only Athens could best (of course) comes from the Minoans which once dominated the Greek islands but where destroyed by a flood from a massive volcano eruption.

In my opinion any place in the Atlantic (including South America) doesnt make sense since the Greeks at the time didnt have that far reach.

If it's still above the water, I like the theory that it's Ireland.

errr no it doesn't
Plato states that there was a war between Atlantis and Greece
he didn't say anything about the Atlantic in his dialogue either
that was added later by Benjamin Jowett who mistranslated part of the text and that mistranslation is what most pseudoscientists like Jim Allen have based their personal belief on
He also stated that it sank beneath the sea
remember that bit ?
this at no time happened to Bolivia
so what have you got
a place in a location not mentioned by Plato
which didnt sink as mentioned by Plato
which wasn't ever at war as mentioned by Plato
pffft
try reading some credible sites in future
i.e. ones based on the writings of plato and not based on whoever claims to have found it this week
this matches Plato only if you ignore practically everything he said

does he really now
so perhaps you can post all three quotes by Plato where he says its factual and also where he states he is assigning greek names

I don't think you've even read his two dialogues where he describes Atlantis
you're just repeating claims made by Jim Allen
heads up
he lied
