this is something interesting that just came to my mind. i thought this.

well in the bible the world was created in one large mass... science called it pangea. then the bible says the earth was flooded... later on in the bible theres this small statement about peleg. it says "and in his days the earth was divided...

i thought to myself, well ive heard theories about ancients before the folood being smart, Very smart. so what if...

the story of atlantis was really just a flood story of pangea. Pangea was atlantis and the worldwide flood was the flood that atlantis disappeared in. because after the flood like RIGHT after it the land divided in the days of peleg...

what do you think is atlantis really pangea and the atlantians the ancients?

Well a creative idea but....



The scientific theory of Pangea dates to around ~230 million years ago, before man and before mammals. The tectonic movment is very slow a few centimeters a year.

No flood, that idea went out 150 years ago. I often wonder why religious people love this concept so much - their god drowning millions of 3 and 4 year olds.

It is an inventive idea J_F, just not plausible in a science based arena but you could probably sell it as a purely religious idea (belief) were facts are not necessary.

the date that is given to pangea is based on the concept of evolution which i dont belive in b/c of lack of proof...
i belive in catastrophism one of the least common scientific theories..and i believe in a flood not because my religion says there was but because all cultures talk of one and scientific proof.

well anyway thank you for your comment and now you know my reasoning

Some comments




the date that is given to pangea is based on the concept of evolution which i dont belive in b/c of lack of proof...


Hans: Ah no evolution has nothing to do with the geology and other sciences that date Pangea. The evidence for evolution is overwhelming, it is best to not accept the reality of evolution based on a belief system than to try and reject it using bogus science. The faith based method is better for that.



i belive in catastrophism one of the least common scientific theories.


Hans: Actually it is becoming more accepted as more information comes in, perhaps not the Catastrophism of Velikovsky but the early has suffered some blow that affected life in general, climate and mankind.



.and i believe in a flood not because my religion says there was but because all cultures talk of one and scientific proof.


Remeber that the Hebrew gentlemen who wrote the Bible only had a very limited scientific knowledge, they were guessing in many areas. Not all cultures have flood myths and most reflect the many regional floods that occurred over history. Nope sorry J_F the scientific proof all points to no life ending world flood. Again on this one its best to go with a faith based rejection than getting into bogus science.

Regards.

The Bible says alot of things indeed. The problem is... Atlantis was an island. Not the entire world. Plato is quite clear that you reach it by boat. So the theory of Biblical Pangea-Atlantis is a contradiction. You cant have Atlantis the island nation that conquered half of the Med when the world is one big landmass.

The Bible is best seen as a book of wisdom done up by a committee of scientific illiterates. Its contents vary from keen observations of human characters to fantasy. Man created religions to try and explain the world around him, as a first attempt it wasn't too bad, but it reflects a lot of "making stuff up" to explain why some thing happened or happen. We replaced it with the suprerior scientific method, yet the older method is still around.

Hy!

My theory of atlantis is maybe a little different...

Do you know Thot the Atlanter? or Hermes Trismegistos?
In his words Atlantis existed and was killed with a big flood. Atlantis was a big city with many temples and places where people could learn...

Atlantis is myst...
Or maybe not, if you believe in old words.

But but but J_F



i didnt totally base my theory on the bible i didnt make this to get comments on what the bible is but to get comments on my theory


Yes, but when it was pointed out to you that Pangea is ~230 million, you stated you didn't believe that because of your religion, that brought the bible into the discussion line

Your comment


the date that is given to pangea is based on the concept of evolution which i dont belive in b/c of lack of proof


You also stated that Bible concept of world wide flood is a basis of your idea - again bringing in the bible

We didn't just start picking on ya. Here is an idea, reshape your theory without bringing in Biblical aspects.

oh yeah i see what youre saying im srry for that

but i will say this i would believe in a worldwide flood and not believe in evolution even if i wasnt a christian based on the knoweldge ive recieved

now whether i wouldve had that knoweledge if i wasnt a christian is unknon

i just wanted to make the point clear if i ever NOT become a christian i would still believe there was a wold flood and not believe in evolution and alot of other things

Then you are not talking about Platos Atlantis at all, so why bring it into the argument?

You're talking about some mythical pangea nation with no links whatsoever to Atlantis. Got nothing against your theory: if one strictly follow the Bible I suppose people on that single landmass is a possibility. But then again slapping "Atlantis" on things is cool. Just look at Stargate: Atlantis, lol.

plato did not create the story he implied it was a real place whether he had been there or not

the theory is that all lot of his statements were his theory about this revised and abridged flood stories
