So the question is: if this landmass was above water 12,000 years ago, did it have a bronze age civilisation, identical to that which the
Mediterranean had 8,000 years later? And did Athens also have a bronze age civilisation, identical to how it would 8,000 years later? And did the
later defeat the former in war? eaving no archaelogical evidence whatsoever, with a subsequent reversion to hunter/gather lifestyles?
Otherwise, Plato's tale is nothing but a tale.
As for Greenland, I think 2 miles of ice for the past million years (the ice cap was admittedly less extensive than today during some interglacials,
such as the Eemian 125,000 years ago) rather puts paid to that? Or are we now invoking bronze age civilisations on Greenland and in Egypt and Greece
125,000 years ago?
Oh, and btw, why did Atlantis invade the Mediterranean when there were obvious, empty, fertile, landmasses closer to hand?
