                                         Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean –

that is the favourite theory among many scientists all over the world. Just because Plato
mentioned an empire in the Atlantic Ocean? No! There is considerable circumstancial evi-
dence for a land bridge or a huge island in the Atlantic Ocean.

According to Plato’s report, Atlantis should be situated between Spain, North Africa and
Central America. This is exactly where the Canary Islands are – and the Atlantic Ridge,
one of the world’s most unstable regions. Moreover, this is also the location of the Azores
and, further westward, the Caribbean area with its huge and small islands.

Picture above:

In 1665, the German Jesuit priest Athanasius Kircher
created this inverted map of Atlantis.

Turning the map results in an image of the Central Atlantic
 plateau around the Azores. What is unusual about that is
that people at that time had only little knowledge about
the nature of the sea bed.

Were some ancient notes available to the Jesuit priests
enabling them to create such a map?
