Well, first we have to find, or rather, localize where Atlantis was - if it ever even existed in the first place. Some say that Plato made Atlantis up
in some story, portraying the perfect society.
While it is correct that Egypt wasn't the first civilization, one could ask: when was it? And where? When did civilization begin? When all wars
ended? Well, we aren't civilized yet then. When we first had a leader? We have always had some sort of leader, the strongest, the most intelligent, a
royal king (bloodlines) and so on. Tribes have existed long before any known civilization. So in the end, we won't really find out where and when the
first civilization was, until we can find any scriptures or symbols or something left by them.
Yes, the Sumerians were one of the first "civilizations" to write down stuff, and actually, the first things they wrote down was how much this and
that person owned - trades, prices, units of money - that kind of stuff.
