Hey everyone I've done some research and I found alot of evidence that points to Ireland as the lost city of Atlantis. Its just the right size and has a plain in the middle (Central plain). Also the Tuath de Dannan sound like the aliens that came and interbreeded with nesolithic humans. There is new evidence to suggest there is a temple under the Hill of Tara. What do you guys think?

Read Aristotle's account of Atlantis, it is nothing like Ireland.

Aristotle either said that Atlantis was bigger than Asia and Africa (mesa) or halfway between Asia and Africa (meson)

I thought it was Plato that documented Atlantis. Or did he just have a more popular account of it?

Well do you know that link I gave you about a temple under Tara. Well if Atlantis was around 25,000 years ago and soil builds up on itself then wouldn't Atlantis be under Ireland?

Wow, weird. I have never heard of Tara :O That sounds exciting.
Does anyone have any links to the stories of Atlantis ?

Interesting theory. Doesn't match any of the descriptions of Atlantis though. The Temple under Tara does pose some interesting questions. Here is a link to Atlantis .

You are correct. The "Dialogue of Critias" is the text you'd look for. If you're looking for Atlantis, I'd say the likely candidate is the Altiplano region of Bolivia in South America. Remember that "Atlantis" is the name for both the continent, and the city.
The continent actually being that of South America (size and shape match, location, geography, etc.) whereas the city was once in the Altiplano (high plain, surrounded by mountains, trench to the sea, alternating land and sea belts, flooded, volcano, right size, midway along the longest side of the continent, etc.)

I may be pointing out the obvious here but Irelands not very sunken.

The best candidate for where the Ark of the Covenant is, is in Ethiopia...
This is supported by historical evidence, and is claimed to be held in a church and under armed guard.

Here's a quick link on the Ark (if that's what you meant)

exodus2006.com...

I saw a special on it once, and they did a great job on showing how it was moved through the ages, etc.

As for Atlantis and South America, go here:

Your thinking of the stone of the covenant, which came to Ireland with the prophet Jeremiah and Tamar daughter of the Judean King Zedekiah who was taken by Nebuchadnezzar to Babylon and blinded.

Tamar subsequently married the Irish King Eochaid1 in 586 BC and formed the seat of the high kings of Tara.

The Arc was recovered in 1127AD in the excavation of the El Sharif in Jeruselam the site of the destroyed Temple of Solomon during the first crusade by Godfoi de Bouillion and the knights templar. Revelations 11:19 indicates the Arc remained in the Temple and was hidden in underground vaults beneath the stables since the Temple was destroyed in 586BC. It went first to Troyes in France for the tables of testimony to be translated from Kabbala, but was spirited away to Scotland when Pope Clement V outlawed the Templar order. Scotland alone ignored the pope who was a stooge of French King Phillipe as the whole of Scotland had been excomunicated some time before for taking up arms against Phillipes son in law Edward II of Britain. Most historical sources claim the Templars died out in the 1300's, they are quite wrong, the templars still exist in Scotland and still have amonst other treasures the Stone of Destiny and the Arc of the Covenant.

As for Atlantis, I have no idea...

Yes, however Dogger Bank, an island off the coast off Ireland sank around 6100 B.C.

It is "continental"? Does it have the space required for the numerous kingdoms of Atlantis? Somehow I doubt it....


Visit the SA link I provided, as it also has a link to the translated Critius text, and read Plato's words for yourself. THEN look at the candidates, and see which one fits his words to a "T"...

Dogger Bank, is in the north sea between Scotland and Europe, it's not really near Ireland, though when drilling in this region many man made artifacts have been recovered fron the sea floor...

That's what I was wondering, then I read this possibility from the site www.mythicalireland.com...:


Erlingsson says: "Just like Atlantis, Ireland is 300 miles long, 200 miles wide, and widest over the middle. They both feature a central plain that is open to the sea, but fringed by mountains. No other island on earth even comes close to this description."

“What has led most students astray is that Atlantis sank in the sea”, says Dr Erlingsson. “It is an ‘Atlantic myth’ all right – but a myth from, not about, Atlantis”. "The island that sank was Dogger Bank. It was struck by a disastrous flood-wave around 6,100 BC, and now rests deep under the waves of the North Sea."



What an awesome thought...!
