I agree that to question the sinking of the continent is also an assumption, but why not question it. We can treat this just like any other cold-case investigation. After all, we have time and technology on our side, not to mention a slew of Atlantis investigators.  Who knows, with a little shrewd detective work, we might be able to answer the 2000 year old question: Did the continent of Atlantis really sink or was it a wrong assumption? We can start by re-asking the two questions that have been asked many time before. If the continent of Atlantis did sink, why canít we find its debris on the ocean floor?  If it did not sink, where is it on land?  If we believe Plato, the country of Atlantis was huge.  It was, if Iím not mistaking, about 60,000 square miles in area. 

Plato: ďAs to the population, each of the lots in the plain had to find a leader for the men who were fit for military service. The size of a lot was a square of ten stadia each way, and the total number of all the lots was sixty thousand. And of the inhabitants of the mountains and of the rest of the country there was also a vast multitude, which was distributed among the lots and had leaders assigned to them according to their districts and villages.Ē

Now, if you were searching only the land areas and had to make an impartial choice between the European side and the Americas side based strictly on Platoís dialogue, which side would you choose and why?

It doesn't have to be squarely on the ocean floor, sea levels rose three hundred feet since the end of the last Ice Age.  Lower the water level that much and more land is exposed, especially in the Azores/Bahamas/Canary Island area, which is the most likely place.

This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean. 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.

Also, underwater ruins have been found off the Canary Islands and in the Bimini/Andros region of the Bahamas.
