Let us see what Plato says about the Atlantic sea of the myth and its relation with the present Atlantic Ocean.


quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“For these histories tell of a mighty power which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe and Asia, and to which your city put an end. This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable; and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean; for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbour, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent. (…).

“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. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the Atlantic Ocean there is nothing is looked like which here this writing:

a) The ocean in which it not possible to sailing.
b) A mud barrier.
c) A narrow entrance to a single port.
d) An island in front of a Strait.
e) A close opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean

Nothing agrees.
