This was a very interesting thread. I haven't had the opportunity to read all of the posts, as what you wrote took some time for me to peruse.
But I am glad I did. S & F.

Edit: Question. In section 6, regarding the walls of the city, you have a photograph with an overlay of the city and walls as you might imagine them to be. However, the land mass where you have the city overlay does not appear to be that of the island that you point to as a possible site for the city. Was this done in error? Or, am I misinterpreting the photo?

I seldom read a whole OP of that length but this was just so well written and interesting. From all the evidence you've compiled I think you are right. As you state, there are just too many coincidences for the tale to be fictional and on the assumption that the tale is true, all the pieces fit together so well that the Argentine Mesopatamia is indeed the location of atlantis.

Thank you so much for this epic presentation, I will be sure to keep digging on this subject with all of your evidence in mind.

Excellent.

Hi everyone, and thanks to the OP for an extensive research and information about this particular topic.
Since I saw the documentary about Atlantis in the Andes by Jim Allen I was baffled

Not only his measurements and own observations are accurate to Plato's story of Atlantis, but he also points out a particular detail that should be enough for people to realize that this is the spot where Atlantis used to be. I will refer to Plato's dialogues to make my point:

"In the first place, they dug out of the earth whatever was to be found there, mineral as well as metal, and that which is now only a name and was only a name and was then something more than a name, ORICHALCUM, was dug out of the earth in many parts of the island, and with the excemption of gold was esteemed the most precious of metals among the men of those days."

Orichalcum was thought to be an imaginary metal imagined by Plato along with his story of Atlantis. But actually Orichalcum DOES exist, and it can be found in the Altiplano Boliviano, exactly where Jim Allen pointed out Atlantis to be. Orichalcum is a natural alloy of gold and copper, and is NOT FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

So I believe Atlantis is there, details, details details. Many stories can be 80% accurate or 90% accurate, but none have all the small details considered as the Altiplano, give a thought

Guess that all the real researchers telling us it is near gibraltar must be wrong then...

Atlantis was supposed to have 10 different departments, if you place the main department in the Altiplano about 12000 years ago or more. Take a look at Lake Titicaca and how it was created by the flooding of the continent

Hello Another10Pin,

The city is centered directly on the island. The image was made by using the image overlay feature in Google Earth. I then used Photoshop to edit out the waterways extending out to the Rio de la Plata.

The image is meant to depict the delta at the time Atlantis would have existed and assumes that the delta and some of its distributaries may have experienced some significant changes after being subjected to the effects of a cataclysmic quake and of course time itself.

Sorry, about the confusion. I should have captioned that image better. It was the very last image I made and I hastily added it and the caption just before I posted.

Thanks much for the S & F.

-Doug

Thanks WideEyes,

I am very glad you enjoyed it.

I agree the evidence seems extremely compelling, but there are still quite a few hurdles to overcome before the "Welcome to Atlantis" sign comes out.

wow. who are you? i've yet to finish reading this, but your post gives me a funny feeling in my tummy. well written and nice format with resources and photos and everything. tell me, you did a bibliography too, right? to think that you did this for personal fulfillment give me some kind of hope for the future. the only downside is that it's on ATLANTIS! don't get me wrong, i fantasize about atlantis and its lost civilization aplenty, but we need your mind focused on how to get the worlds' sh*t together.

Thanks. A lesser person might have gone way over the top.


Seriously though, I very much appreciate your enthusiastic support. You are far too generous.

Thanks for the offer, but I have to admit that my range may be somewhat limited. The content of both threads is mostly reliant on spatial reasoning, pattern recognition and a dash of logic.

I don't know that it is a pressing subject, but I do have something currently in the works that I am truly convinced will be very big and truly newsworthy. It is essentially part 3 of this series, but is just not quite ready for prime time. I am currently seeking some advice from a specialist and would also really like to hook up with a publisher. We'll just have to see how all that turns out.

Thanks again,
Doug

ooohhh, fancy! good for you! I think if you could do a piece like this, you could do so many wonderful things. at least do what you have a passion for and everything else will fall into place. good luck.

Just a quick post to get the thread on my radar, very good so far.

Quick question for later,

I've read that there are structures under the water in Lake Titicaca, and that parts of the lake were intentionally flooded.

Anyone else hear this?

If so I'd love a link, I read it here, just can't find the thread.

I think it might be the thread about the ancient water canal in SA that has Sumerian writing on it. Was a video with a very annoying guy with a silver ponytail.

NP. I was just curious. Thanks for helping me to understand the intent.

Just a general comment, no one will believe you have found Atlantis, until you actually find it. As I noted before, to show that Atlantis is at 'x' you need to survey and dig. If you don't you won't find Atlantis.

I would further suggest that you would have more luck contacting the local university archaeology departments who will have a fair to excellent idea of what archaeological resources are in the area, than a publisher.

Thanks Hanslune,

I fully agree with you and I sincerely do appreciate your very thoughtful and practical advice, but just to clarify, the remark about a publisher was in regards to another discovery, not Atlantis or any other subject I have presented thus far. The two works presented in this forum are merely intended to soften up the fringe of history and science. Aside from the discovery of Agrippa's Orbis Terrarum, I acknowledge that all else addressed here is highly speculative in nature, but played a key role in leading me to what comes next.

Thanks again,
Doug
