plato said across the pillars of hercules, meaning the mediterranean, so that logically would mean by england. i can't remember where, but i read something that said Britain had a flood that killed nearly everyone in the islands, so that could be it. or, if the maps of the ancient sea kings are to be believed, there was a worldwide maritime civilization, and that the tribes in antarctica were frozen, that could also be it.

Maybe it does not exist and it was just a myth told by elder Greeks from generation to generation. It started in Greece as a story, the Greeks loved telling stories, inventing. Most of them were not true. The only things that would sustain this other than the greek story is the pyramids in Egypt.

But maybe some Greeks went to Egypt told the story and the Egyptians wrote it on the walls of the pyramids. It does not mean it's the truth, all it means is that they just wrote it on the wall. Greeks were knowing for traveling and telling stories. It's how Christianity developed.

What gets me is a combo of sorts.
First , Egypt basically springs up out of nowhere with giant pyramids, irrigation, etc.
Then the american senator's book Atlantis written in the 1800's .
www.andrewcollins.com...

"Perhaps the most important writer to propose that the Azores were remnants of an Atlantean island continent was Ignatius Donnelly, author of the seminal classic Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, first published in 1882. This American congressman set down the foundations for the thousands of books and articles that have been written on the subject of Atlantis over the past 120 years. Although Donnelly's book has seen countless reprints, much of what he had to say about Atlantis being an antediluvial motherland for the diffusion of civilisation on both sides of the Atlantic has since been proved incorrect. "

I would debate how much of his stuff is incorrect.
It's an amazing book and great for anyone interested in some non-platonic atlantean theory.
It's great for someone who wants more than just what plato wrote in Timmaeus and Crittias.

Not sure how you get England from that. England doesn't touch the Mediterranean. I believe it was in the Aegean area. Possibly in the Tyrrhenian.

Read my thread, "Amazing insights on Atlantis"

The evidence strongly suggests Atlantis was a continent in the Indian ocean, of which Sri Lanka is a surviving portion. It sank 9600 years ago after a devestating war between Sri Lanka and India. Details of the war are recorded in the Indian epic Ramayana.

I don't subscribe to Plato's "Atlantis" myth per se, but I am certainly inclined to believe that there was a developed sea-faring race that did exist prior to the last Ice Age.

@Indigo: If it were around Sri Lanka it shouldn't be too hard to find. And if Sri Lanka was a part of this lost land as you say, it shouldn't be more than a 4,000 ft. deep.



If there are remnants of a lost city(ies) then I would put my money on Antarctica above all else, it's particularly interesting if this is true since it would (we assume) be nicely preserved.

The ancient city of Atlantis is just north of Grand Cayman Island.
It's 400 feet under water. The Atlanteans survived and are alive today.
They were helped by the Grays and built their own Starships.
Technically, the Atlanteans are not aliens. They are indigenous to
Earth.

Unlike Troy, I believe Atlantis will never be found. Unlike Troy, Atlantis
slipped beneath the waves. This suggests possible plate movement.
Which means it could be not only under the waves. It could also be under a shelf. If not what would ten thousand to twenty thousand years on
the bottom of the ocean do to any city. Salt water currents, come on.
I believe Atlantis like Troy is no joke. What was left of troy when it was found.

No matter what you must always remembe rwhen looking for Atlantis.

You only have the Atlantic ocean to search. Otherwise the Indian ocean
would be called the Atlantic. Or the Agean would be called the Atlantic.

the lost civilization of atlantis would exist between the eastern and western hemispheres in the atalantic ocean, but in another dimension. when humans consciousness received different wave lengths, eventually we will find Atlantis again but it will take a collective conscious shift of humanity to reach a higher plane, maybe this will happen in 2012. the people who are ready for it will realize but the people who won't will think that it's the end of the world.

everything can be explained in this google video titled the legend of atlantis

Google Video Link


if you want to watch it all, it is a very interesting video

I think its between the North Pole, Ireland and Iceland.

Maybe that is why TPTB want to melt the Ice caps, not just for oil ehh?

I don't know how deep it could have sank. However, I think that if the marine archeaologists start searching in the Indian ocean they wll find something.

We are not going to know really until that initiative is taken by somebody or somebody invents a time machine or aliens come down and show us video records of Atlantis

That would make more sense wouldn't it? In the Atlantic.
And do you know how many places starting with ATLANTA and stretch south to the Carribbean Islands and West into Centeral America there are which have the words ATLAS or ATLAN? In my home city's case it's flat out ATLANTA.
ATLAS = Classical God
ATLAN = Aztec God
Go figure

I believe Atlantis was a Phoenician port in the Caribbean. It would have been called Atlas, Atlan or Aztlan.

In the Critias Plato states that one of Poseidon's 10 sons was named Gadrius. In Spain there was an ancient Phoenician port named Gades.

I believe the other 8 sons were names of other ports around the globe.
These other regions may also have sunken under the waves as well.

I think it might be what the Great Bahama Bank is now:



Now, I don't know my Geology, so who knows. But from what I see, all of that light-blue doesn't get any deeper than about 75 feet. The area is pretty big, as well.

We're talking almost 350 miles (from north to south) long and almost 250 miles from east to south.

I really wonder what's under that water over there...

Why do people choose to ignore the primary sources?

Plato clearly states the City of Atlantis is to be found: "in front of the Pillars of Hercules".(Plato's Timaeus)

He didn't say across from, he didn't say past, he clearly stated it was "in front of the Pillars of Hercules".(Ibid)

Further, it was said that from the Southern tip of the Spanish mainland 'could be seen' from Atlantis.

Remember, it was through using the information in Homer's Iliad, that Troy was finally located!

Don't ignore the primary sources - we need to give them much more credit than they receive!

I wasn't ignoring the primary source .
I just pointed out that Atlantis by Donnelly is a good book.
And Plato didn't bother to spend much time writing about it did he?
