A philosopher - i'm unsure if it's plato or socrates, once mentioned an advance civilization in his book. (pardon me for being not certain, i think the book's name is Republique.) Many scientists believe that he's pertaining to atlantis. Most archeologist also firmly believe in its existence, based on the relics they have unearthed. So assuming that this city really existed, personally i don't believe that they are as advanced as us today. Unless perhaps, they have been aided by aliens. hehehe. And also, if you want to immerse yourself in studying lost cities, research lemuria as well. The latter is similar to Atlantis in many aspects


Atlantis is mentioned in Plato's dialogues, although he claimed that their story was originally recorded by Egyptian priests. I honestly am unable to believe in Atlantis, Lemuria, or Mu. I think they merely represent the wish for a paradise or the impossibility of an earthly paradise existing, similarly to El Dorado or even Heaven. In any case I don't think islands and continents sink. Plate tectonics anyone?


for argument's sake. As per plate tectonics theory- islands do sink. Familiar with land bridges? they once connected several countries but they did sink. so, what's the difference between them and islands. Please enlighten me oh wise one


I'll admit I forgot all about land bridges. However I still don't believe they fit the Atlantis myth. Land bridges typically sink over thousands of years, not in a sudden catastrophe. Anyway it's impossible to prove either way.

That Mankind Can Not Explain.

I believe in these lost civilizations, they're fascinating, and there are actually pyramids and other constructions being found in the ocean, not only at bermuda triangle. However, as some have said, I don't think they really had those advanced technologies like spaceships and whatsoever, that's probably an megalomaniac interpretation of some characteristics these civilizations had.

How do they figure that some random rock was part of a maybe mythological maybe not ancient city?

I believe that Atlantis was real. But maybe the world has remixed to make it believe certain things that make our imagination go wild.

many people think this is nonsense...
Posted 11/18/08
thanks to Plato for this mystery hahah!

hmm,Plato wrote something bout this and scholars (some) say that plato documented this from past memories,.similar to the trojan war and stuff^^
part of this myth perpahs is true but we don't know which of it is.

it is possible for the city of atlantis to exist,. but i don't think everything said bout it is true.

I doubt that it ever existed - if it had we would have found some evidence besides a rock by now. I'd love it if it were true, though.
