Now, in this analysis of method in which we are, the dates are subjects that merit a deep analysis. Plato never indicated that all the events happened in the 9600 BC. He indicates that there the process began. The scientific researches say that there they beginning the first human settlement with agriculture; that is to say, in that date start the civilization. In this point, therefore, there is coincidence. Also the myth talking of evolution of these cities by many generations, that is to say, is long lapses of time. Archaeology says us the same, because in the 8000 BC already there are many cities, that a civilization in expansion shows, which also indicates the myth. Again there is coincidence.

Wrong. Plato is very specific that the war took place then.

From Critias:

Let me begin by observing first of all, that nine thousand was the sum of
years which had elapsed since the war which was said to have taken place
between those who dwelt outside the Pillars of Heracles and all who dwelt
within them;

For two sides to participate in a war, both sides would have to evolve armies and civilizations, so that would make your other explanations irrelevant. The Kurgan stuff is far too recent to be involved with Atlantis, at least as far as what Plato has writen.

As far as picking some other culture in history that might match Plato's other descriptions, since you're putting your Atlantis within the Pillars of Hercules, away from the Atlantic Ocean, and disallowing almost all of Plato's geographic descriptions (not to mention picking and choosing wich other details of Plato's to accept and which to ignore), I'd say any of your other suggestions trend towards being a bit spurious.
