Oh there are lots of good people there, I still breathed a sigh of relief when I came back to New Zealand
Earthquakes and everything


I'm just not sold on WI, it goes against all the evidence, then again some folks think Ireland was Atlantis too

One thing that all the folks with the "I FOUND ATLANTIS!!!" sites keep forgetting is that according to Plato, Atlantis conquered almost every other city state EXCEPT Athens. And Athens defeated them.

There's a distinct lack of evidence that Wisconsin (or Ireland or Spain) dominated all of the cities in the Mediterranean and fought a large battle with Athens (Athens' history is reasonably well documented by the Athenians themselves.)

I also have to wonder whether Plato’s account of Atlantis is a description of an actual civilization that sunk beneath the waves, or a tantalizing tale that rose up wholly from the depths of the Athenian philosopher’s imagination,Or a blend of fact, fiction plus Atlantis is mentioned by no one before Plato so maybe its just a beautiful tale to captivate people’s imaginations ..Or maybe its real who knows..

So, I was thinking...... what if the Kennsington Ruestone and this finding in Wisconsin are from the same people?

So Sugarcookie, you think that maybe Plato was the first J.R.R Tolkien, and instead of using the term storyteller they used the term philosopher?

Better theory than most, I mean wasn't Plato blind?

You're thinking of Homer (the blind poet) not Plato.

Plato's teaching method (if you read the books) was to tell his pupils a story and then spark discussion about it. These discussions covered a lot of the classical philosophical problems (I won't go into them now because i'm working on another project, but you can google for them.) Atlantis-as-story fits perfectly with the book and its discussion and fits the standard teaching style he used.

Sorry I always get Plato and Homer mixed up and I don't know why, but thanks for correcting me.

There are numerous pyramids found in this lake that appear to be very ancient but no one has really been able to tell if they are man-made or just natural rocks left by glaciers. But all across America there are mysterious structures and carvings that local Indian tribes do not take credit for and say that a fair skinned race settled in the area long ago and were responsible for the work. To me, it is quite obvious that some Europeans or Scandinavians made it to America hundreds if not thousands of years before Columbus and built these structures. There is also a stonehenge structure along with a mastodan carving underneath Lake Michigan. The following link has some basic information on the pyramids in Wisconsin along with several other mysterious stuctures in the United States that appear to be very ancient and not constructed by the local indian tribes.
