Overview:

 

A lost civilization of highly advanced people.

 

The Greek philosopher Plato wrote of Atlantis in two of his dialogues, "Timaeus" and "Critias," around 370 B.C. Plato explained that this story, which he claimed to be true, came from then-200-year-old records of the Greek ruler Solon, who heard of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest. Plato said that the continent lay in the Atlantic Ocean near the Straits of Gibraltar until its destruction 10,000 years previous.

 

In "Timaeus," Plato described Atlantis as a prosperous nation out to expand its domain: "Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent," he wrote, "and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia."

 

Plato goes on to tell how the Atlanteans made a grave mistake by seeking to conquer Greece. They could not withstand the Greeks' military might, and following their defeat, a natural disaster sealed their fate. "Timaeus" continues: "But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea."

Hi,

I came across your page because i have always been fascinated by the legendary Atlantis. I have been in the Mediterranean, the Canarys and the Azores. I truly believe that the lost island of Atlantis was the Azores Plateau. The underground plateau forms an "A " appearance and the Azores are the highest peaks. Their are constant earthquakes and several authorities believe that a near future eruption will occur in these islands soon. Anyway i just wanted to write you and give you my opinion.

Thanks,

Tony G.
