The story of Atlantis seems to have taken on a life of its own. Lets remember that without Plato's dialogues, there is no story about Atlantis, so we
have to take his word about a few things. We can also however realize that this story ties in VERY well with the rest of history.
1. Atlantis sank in the third earthquake before the great deluge, just after a war with a Mediterranean Coalition lead by Athens.
2. Atlantis was a barrier to any ship sailing outside of Gibralter, because it was very shallow at first. There goes the Antarctica theory.
3. There was another continent beyond Atlantis. That pretty much kills South America, which I believed to be the loacation until 30 minutes ago.
4. Atlantis is populated by the children of a God (poseidon) and a mortal.
Plato says there were Earthquakes leading up to the great deluge, and that these destroyed Atlantis ahead of the rest of the world. Unlike most
places, Atlantis did not recover.
I suggest that there could be huge subterranean seas, which by the shifting of the earth can become cut off from the surface and begin to build
pressure. Siesmic activity then ruptures them, spilling them back to the surface and caving in the earth above- lowering land and raising sea level.
Plato notes that the underground stream which sprang up at the Acropolis stopped flowing after the Earthquake that took down Atlantis.
This happened in the submerged mountains off the coast of Europe/Africa. Note the big, deep, crack running down the length of that mass.
Also note that I mentioned the people being half gods? NEPHALIM DESTORYED BY A FLOOD? Now do you believe us AD?
expect this to play in to my revised world history and Theory of Everything centered theory of everything else. (I know you don't get that, and that
entertains me). I'll explain when I'm finished putting it together and ready to post it.
