No.

There's no evidence of Atlantis ever existing so there is no evidence that the people of Atlantis could fly!

Also, they way I understand it, they made a mean spinach and gruyere souffle. They could, by using their vastly advanced superscience, make it rise even more than we, with our puny technology, can today. Also, they made it uncollapsable so that it would never fall.

Also, they rode around in the sky on their various souffles. But their enemies soon learned to gun them down with huge spurts from their gravy boats.

Hmmm. I'm hungry. Must be lunchtime.

Well, the only evidence for Atlantis possessing advanced technology comes from the Mahabharata.

In it, there are accounts of ancient Atlantis (as well as ancient India) possessing advanced technology and weapons. Of the two, Atlantis was more advanced and more warlike.
Both nations possessed flying machines (called Vimana in the text)

I thought that flying technology had the Arians (people from Mars) and not the Atlandeans...

I am unware that Plato's story of Atlantis has any concordance in the Mahabharata. Please provide evidence for your assertion.

Cheers.

I'm not talking about Plato or his theories. And the source is the Mahabharata. If you want to review it rent it from your library. I haven't read it all, but what I have is pretty good.

Even if its not true, it is an amazing book.

I have a copy of an English translation, and don't recall anything about Atantis in it.....

Nope.

Plato says nothing about this. They were Bronze Age people (in his tale) and they were defeated by Athens (who had bronze armor and weapons.)

The "flying" gets "channeled" by someone in the early to mid 1900's. I think Edgar Cayce is the source of that. So it's a modern myth on this old morality tale.

...which doesn't mention Atlantis.

Actually, "vimana" means "temple roof." It's not a plane. The demons levitated them much like flying carpets.

There's a pseudo-ancient book on "flying vimanas". We researched it here, and it turns out (surprise, surprise) to be "channeled" in 1910 or so and not an ancient book at all. The "made it all up in 1910 fits perfectly with the 1910 design elements in the ships (which look like dirigibles, the most common airship of that time) and the unworkable engine concepts.

Really? I find it incredibly tedious, with verse after verse exhorting the overall wonderfulness of the various main characters, who zip about and tussle worse than anime cartoon folk.
