The ancient easterners knew the region s of Asia and lybia combined were extremely long because many have traversed its lands. As the explorers
travelled west by ship and reached the northern part of North America, they would travel south along the coast all the way to the bottom tip of South
America and determine that the western land was as big as lybia and Asia combined.
But here is where the Atlantis legend comes in:
A modern traveller like Christopher Columbus would say different because North and South America are divided by the Caribbean Ocean.
If the ancient explorers traversed the same seas and continents, wouldn't they conclude North and South America was divided also? How could these two
great continents be counted as one giant one?
The answer is that the Caribbean Ocean was not present long ago. There was a great land mass in that area. This region was where the capital of
Atlantis was. North and South America was the great empire of Atlantis. The great city center and place of great magnificence existed in the Caribbean
