And pray tell me where can I find that it has been debunked?
General consensus is now that no Black Sea Flood occurred, certainly not the dramatic event originally proposed by Pittman and Ryan. However, you
can read summaries of a good number of papers on the subject here:
As for all those suggesting Antarctica: pray tell me why anyone would build a bronze age civilisation in a frozen hell? During the last ice age
Antarctica was colder with much more extensive ice cover than it has today. Even the penquins retreated north.
Like the rest of the world it did start warming up from around 15,000 years ago, with some small readvances in glaciers since about 6,000 years ago
(now in retreat once more due to global warming
Edit: as to where I think Atlantis was - I think it was in lots of places. Plato invented it, but like most people he based his invention on real
events and places and other stories he'd heard over the years, in order that his audience could relate to the place and believe in it.
But the Atlantis as described specifically by Plato did not exist in reality any more than Tolkien's Middle-Earth (which was itself based on many
different European myths and legends) existed.
