Lost Atlantis City Spotted on Floor of Atlantic

Off the coast of Africa near the Canary Islands

Myth or Reality

Some people look for the the lost city of Atlantis, which in Plato's view, is only part of the Atlantean empire. Atlantis is generally thought of as a continent, not just a city.

The Legend of Atlantis
The legend of Atlantis has to be one of the oldest and most spellbinding of all the world's mysteries. It has puzzled both skeptics and believers alike.   Where exactly was Atlantis and where is it now?  What caused its destruction?  Exactly how advanced were the Atlanteans?  We hope someday everyone will know the answers to those questions.

Plato, a Greek philosopher, gave us the first known account of Atlantis.   Plato was said to have lived from about 428 to 348 B.C.  He was a student of Socrates.  After studying with Socrates, Plato opened up his own philosophy school.  There he began to write his philosophies in a play-type form.  These dialogues always featured Socrates as the main character.  In the dialogues Timaeus and Critias, he wrote about an amazing place called Atlantis. In Critias, Plato wrote of Atlantis' architecture, engineering, and ceremonies in great detail.  Many people, even Plato's own students, thought this place was Plato's own creation, but he argued that Atlantis was real, and filled with more splendors than anyone could imagine. 

All races share the story of a great flood that destroyed an entire civilization.  The name Atlantis appears in various forms throughout the world.  The Canary Islands have a legend involving Atalaya.  The Basques of Northern Spain have Atlaintica.  The Vikings told the tale of Atli.  Northern Africa called it Attala.  The Aztecs have Aztlán, and the North American Indians called theirs Azatlán.
Plato said Atlantis was a large island in the Atlantic Ocean, somewhere west of the Pillars of Hercules (the Rock of Gibraltar).  This description has lead to many people believing that Atlantis could have been the Aegean Island of Thera (Santorini) which suddenly blew up.  Atlantis was also identified as part of an ancient series of land bridges that stretched across the Atlantic and even out into the Pacific as far as New Zealand.  Others say that the Canary Islands are the tops of Atlantis' tallest mountains.  Some say that the Bermuda Triangle is the result of Atlantis sinking.  

The discovery of blue eyes and blondness among some of Africa's Berbers soon led some people to place Atlantis in the Atlas Mountians of modern Morocco and Tunisia.   Still others claim that Atlantis was not even on this planet. 

According to the continental drift theory, all the continents fit together, like a jigsaw puzzle.  If you look at a map, you will see that the continents really do fit together- with the exception of the USA in North America and Western Europe.  Could Atlantis be the missing piece? 

According to Plato, one of the best splendors of Atlantis was the palace compound located in the heart of its capital. It was ringed by three canals. Plato remarked, "As each king received it [the palace] from his predecessor, he added to its adornment and did all he could to surpass the king before him, until finally they made of it an abode amazing to behold for the magnitude and beauty of its workmanship.  The visitors passed through a wall of brass, a wall of tin, and a wall of copper.  White and black and red stone quarried from the native rock."  He also wrote that the wealth they possessed was so immense that the like had never been seen before in any royal house, nor will ever easily be seen again.  This, of course, lead to Atlantis' destruction. He stated that the Atlanteans appeared to be superlatively fair and blessed, yet they were filled with lawless ambition and power. The Atlanteans started valuing material wealth above goodness-that's where they went wrong.  Plato said, "The portion of divinity within them was now becoming faint and weak through being oftentimes blended with a large measure of mortality."  The Atlanteans were unable to bear the burden of their possessions. So, "There occurred portentous earthquakes and floods, and one grievous day and night befell them, when...the island of Atlantis...was swallowed up by the sea and vanished."  Plato doubted that any sign of the lost land would ever be found. "The ocean at that spot, has now become impassable and unsearchable." This contributes to the Bermuda Triangle theory above.
