Hello Rapturas and thanks for this report and consider the fact of this Atlantis discovery was occurring the same time Flynn was writing, so maybe he
did not consider Atlantis at those coordinates, who would have figured in this location, like me, the thought was somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean,
more research is definitely needed, keep up the good work.
What if one of humankind’s greatest mysteries could be solved by a single geographical and archaeological discovery – that of the actual location
of the legendary Atlantis?
The legend of Atlantis made its way to the West through the works of Plato about 2,400 years ago, but this story is actually much older. Roughly
2,600 years ago, the Greek statesman, Solon (known as the “father of democracy”), traveled to Egypt and met with the high priests of the land.
This trip was widely documented by Greek historians as Solon was a legendary figure even in his own time; consequently we know for certain that the
trip did take place and even where the meeting was held.
The Egyptian priests were known in those days as the best keepers of ancient history and they presented Solon with their most ancient historic
records, or what may be considered as their version of the biblical “Genesis.” Here, Solon first learned about the lost island where civilization
had begun. He was so taken by the story that he spent the rest of his life compiling and translating the records to the Greek tongue, changing all the
Egyptian names to Greek, and naming this island “Atlantis”. At the time however, it was also known by various other names throughout the ancient
world, and it is important to note that many people even today wrongly assume that Atlantis must have been in the Atlantic Ocean; in fact no one knows
the original name before Solon’s translations – the “prehistoric” world would not have even known what an ocean is (names like the Atlantic
Ocean and the Pillars of Hercules are actually relatively modern Greek names and the original names used have been long lost).
About two hundred years later, Plato got hold of this treasured text and relayed the legend in the form of dialogues in his “Timaeus” and
“Critias.” The Egyptians had told Solon that this was the island was where the art of civilization truly began, and that the Greek and the
Egyptian cultures were merely off-shoots of that original civilization. They also said that the island was submerged around 9,600 BC and had been in
existence for many thousands of years before the great flood (click to see animation file).
While the modern world continues to wonder about whether Atlantis was real or not, one thing is for certain. To the Egyptian priests, Solon, and
Plato, and in fact all of our distant ancestors, the story was based on real events that took place on a real island. What strikes one most when
reading Plato’s Critias is the astounding number of physical clues, dimensions and detailed descriptions provided about the island, the great plain
at its southern foothills, and the sacred Acropolis Hill located at the heart of the island’s capital, Atlantis City.
Today’s generation is the first in history that has the technological capability to search the ocean depths, and the world’s first detailed
underwater map of the eastern Mediterranean seafloor was produced especially for the Cyprus-Atlantis Project.
After ten years of research and the creation of proprietary maps and 3D models, Robert Sarmast has discovered astounding evidence of the sunken isle
of Atlantis (or some might call it Eden), a lost land mass that many believe to be the prehistoric cultural source of Western civilization
