Why would you claim any civilization found in the Cuban area, and the Bahamas is not Atlantis?...
The city/ruins found off the coast of Cuba could very well be remnants of Atlantis, and just claiming "it is not" doesn't make it so.
My grandfather who was Cuban and died in Cuba was a freemason. Many of my uncles are either freemason, or Rosicrusian and there are stories that Cuba
was once part of Atlantis.
The city/ruins off the coast of Cuba which is over 2,000 feet underwater must have gotten there by way of some mayor cataclism as that which occurred
Atlantis, even thou it is called an island was said to be as large as a continent, larger than Libya and Asia put together.
For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point
in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, and Asia to boot. For the ocean there was at that time
navigable; for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, 'the pillars of Heracles,' there lay an island which was larger than
Libya and Asia together; and it was possible for the travelers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the
whole of the continent over against them which encompasses that veritable ocean. For all that we have here, lying within the mouth of which we speak,
is evidently a haven having a narrow entrance; but that yonder is a real ocean, and the land surrounding it may most rightly be called, in the fullest
and truest sense, a continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvelous power, which held
sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent.
Notice how the account states the island was from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean. That plus it's size, which was supposed to be larger than
libya, and Asia put together makes it a continent, even bigger than Australia.
The very large continent is for certain the Americas, and they even stated that the Kings of Atlantis also had control of parts of the continent.
