If a cup is full and you throw a stone in it, the stone will sink but some of the liquid will drop out of the cup, likewise in the case of Atlantis i again ask where would the exceeding matter go?

That's a good question, however, it is not exactly what we should be talking about.  Imagine, the stone not being thrown at the cup but exploding out of it!

The clues are all around us when we talk about the Mid Atlantic Ridge, which is, in essence, a mountain ridge exploding up towards the surface throught the build up of undersea magma, from underwater volcanoes. Point is, Atlantis was probably created, and destroyed through the complimentary processes of tectonic uplift and tectonic depression.

Lava covers the floor of the Atlantic and there have been many instances of the ocean spitting up and swallowing islands again and again.  If something actually struck the MAR at some point (as Otto Muck theorized), it wouldn't just smash the substance, it would set off a chain reaction of volcanic reactions that the land actually would sink.  All anyone has to do is investigate the craters of Santorini and Krakatoa to see how a volcanic reaction can blow out the center of an island.
