There is no evidence of any ancient civilization on Greenland, so personally I havent thought about it, no.

Although the coastal fringes have, at times, been ice free in places (as they are today) we know from the ice cores that the ice sheet is over 100,000 years old.

It seems an unlikely spot for an ice age civilisation to develop.

Also, if we accept Plato's size and location we must also accept that it sank and the sea where it once was became muddy and difficult to navigate.

good try.... but the fact remains present day Greenland is here and not
broken up and sunk beneath the ocean surface as legend has it for the fate of Atlantis

perhaps the ancient seafaring navigators created the idea that the Sargasso Sea was the remains of an Atlantis island-continent....
building & solidifying myth upon observed fact

Except that seafarers where more interested in sea monsters... Only a certain philosopher was interested in Atlantis

The book I am reading now, Collapse, by Jared Diamond, devotes a couple chapters to Greenland. Archaeologists have taken what are called 'ice core samples' and examined them in detail. If there had been any kind of advanced civilization in Greenland, they would be detectable in this manner. Even a civilization that had no more technology than fire would be detectable, since they would find evidence of deforestation and that kind of thing.

Atlantis is supposedly said to have sunk....Greenland is covered with frozen...Water!....could the sea have risen and flooded the land mass and crated all the ice on top...heck a meteorite could have struck somewhere near and created a wave that could have coverd the landmass with water...but thats my imagination working!

well this is and interesting to topic to me hope more people write about it

Could a city or men have once been in Greeland?

Unlikely but not impossible the Homo Erectus might have gotten there before the various ice ages. However the present theory is that the ice cap formed in the late Pliocene.

Evidence? Not a dang thing. No trace of any early habitation was found on those coastal fringes. Except for the Norse coming in by sea from the south and east and the natives coming in by sea and land from the NW and west.

Hi folks,

Mario Dantas has come up with a serious theory indeed, as a matter of fact he speaking to you right now

There were two main types of Flora:

Northerner and more exuberant, hotter;
Southerner and small, way cooler and watery.

Northerner Continents were hotter and generally further South, while Southerner Continents remained, supposedly in the same place, glaciated...

In order to decide if something "could have been Atlantis" you really need to read the original story by Plato. His was the "definitive" source for thousands of years until a fad in the 1800's produced people who said they could "channel" information from various sources.

Most of the "information" comes from that era. You really need to go back and read Plato on the subject.

But no, it's not possible. Greenland never had an ancient standing Army that ruled most of the world, threatened Athens, and was defeated by Athens.

Greenland is covered with snow, not frozen seawater. Also, in order for that idea to work, Greenland would have had to have had the massive amount of water to stay on until it froze, and since the the ice has melted and refroze since then, to be repeatedly refreshed, apparently, by further dunkings.
