Lets remember Plato was a philosopher and a teacher not some story teller on the street corner. Plus he was told the story of Atlantis by his uncle
Solon, who in turn was told by Egyptian Priests when Solon visited Egypt. The level of detail that the story has can't be made up and life many time
can be stranger than fiction. I whole hardheartedly believe that the Canary Islands or the Azores is the general location of where Atlantis was and
still is. You just have to dig deep enough and in this case you have to dive very deep, like a couple miles or more.
While I agree with your general comments, I have a little difficulty with the ending.
NO ONE SAW WHAT HAPPENED.
One day it was there.
The next, all there was, was nothing.
Unlike the majority of those who believe Atlantis was a reality, and sunk, I believe Atlantis was a reality but was REMOVED from Earth.
And to that length, I personally do not believe it was of this earth. I believe it was the Habitation of the gods on this earth. It may well have had
the Seat/Throne of GOD (yes the Biblical GOD I am) at it's Center.
And I would also suggest, The Azores would have made up just the Eastern Edge of Atlantis. I believe it stood between the Azores and the Caribbean.
Just based on what Plato expresses in the Tale, and the comments attributed to the Priest, there is more than a fictional account. Much like Troy was
Fictional. Much like the 1st Dynasty of China was Fictional. Fictions that actually are realities.
I also liked the comments the Priest is attributed to have noted about the level of History being considered. Makes you wonder what was truly lost
when the Library was destroyed.
The Thera aspect of this,..... The playthings of the gods, had to live somewhere. It would have been more of a Suburb than Atlantis itself. Not the
Only Suburb either. Just one of them.
