 Smiley According to AOL Television information, The History Channel's show: Mystery Quest’s next new episode is titled “Atlantis” and although originally set to air Oct 8th, (next Thursday), it will actually air Oct. 7th, (next Wednesday) at 7 P.M. and at 11 P.M.  It will also repeat the show on Friday Oct. 9th at 6 P.M. and 10 P.M. 

Now if Bianca was still posting we all would have know that.   But I’m glad I checked because I certainly don’t want to miss THAT episode.  Heck, if we’re in THIS forum, shouldn’t it be REQUIRED viewing, LOL.

Here’s what AOL lists as the synopsis of the episode:

Quote
Atlantis: New sonar evidence of underwater structures discovered in the Atlantic Ocean are explored.

And we all know who’s doing the exploring!  Can’t wait to see more of Dr. Greg Little in action.  It’s like having our own “movie star” here at the Forum.   In case you missed it Greg was in an episode last week about the Bermuda Triangle.  Kudos to you Greg!

I watched the episode with the Bermuda Triangle and was hoping it was going to be more about the theory that Atlantis was once there (or at least an outpost of Atlantis).  But it was the same old thing about all the missing planes and boats.  Other than that I think it was a pretty good show.

I do believe Dr. Little did say in one of his posts, that the first episode was going to be about the boats and planes.  They filmed several different shows with National Geographic.

 Smiley    You’re more than welcome Mandy.  Spread the word here at AO. 

Hey Robert0, I really enjoyed the Bermuda Triangle episode.  I’ve been fascinated by the subject ever since Charles Berlitz popularized the subject.  But in some of the online line blogs that come up in a Google search, a lot of people panned the episode, and bashed the History Channel for airing it.  So I’m not sure how the rating went.  But again, I personally loved it.  Wink

Where are you that he debuts in 5 minutes?  I've got to wait another hour and a half and there's no guarantee I'll be getting the same show you do either!!

Watching the show.  I wish they wouldn't always include the Minoan/Santorini theme on every Atlantis special. That's the theory preferred by people too disinterested to actually look for it.

To summarize: Santorini was too small, too recent and in the wrong location to be Atlantis.  The island DIDN't have concentric circles, but rather a couple of fingers of land surrounding the island, and they were a passive people, not militaristic like Atlantis was.

Also, the disaster of Santorini did NOT ruin their civilization.  They were still making pottery one hundred years later.

Not to mention, the Santorini disaster has now been moved back to now around 1600 bc.

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.

I knew it!  There was something totally different on my History channel tonight.  Something about Africa instead.  I'm sure I'll eventually get the right show, I'll just have to watch for it now.

I just watched the show and I'm sorry to say that I was not impressed at all.  It was just the same old thing with nothing new.  The Radio Carbon Dating reveled that the stone could not have came from Atlantis and I was looking at Bimini and the surrounding area on Goggle Earth and for the life of me I can't see any trace of the outer ring of the city that was according to Plato 50 Stades in length which is just under 6 miles.  Plus if the area of Bimini and the Bahama Islands were Atlantis would there be evidence on land?

I liked it, had some good footage of the Bimini Wall.

I don't think Greg Little places the Atlantis capital in the Bahamas, but somewhere nearer to Cuba...

That's true! You would think that there'd be some evidence wouldn’t you, it doesn't make sense that there's not.  If the Bahamas had in fact been Atlantis then there should be something still there on one of the islands, but there’s not.  
I think that the Atlantean people who are believed by some to have built the pyramids of Egypt and South America would have left something behind.

Perhaps Dr. Little should consider looking elsewhere for Atlantis.  Personally I am in support of Atlantis being in Antarctica.  I wish they would have talked about Antarctica a little more instead of the Santorini/Crete theory.

I wonder if they’d even be allowed to check out Antarctica, with the government having such a tight grip on it lately. 
Even if Atlantis isn’t there I'm sure that something is, perhaps something big. The secrecy surrounding it isn't all for nothing.
