The Atlantic Ridge – one of the world’s most notorious regions in terms of seismic activity.
Decreasing the sea level by 300 to 400 metres brings about a huge land mass that would
perfectly fit Plato’s descriptions. In “Critias“, Plato writes:

“(...)In the next place, they had fountains, one of cold and another of hot water, in
gracious plenty flowing; and they were wonderfully adapted for use by reason of the
pleasantness and excellence of their waters. They constructed buildings about them
and planted suitable trees, also they made cisterns, some open to the heavens, others
roofed over, to be used in winter as warm baths (...)“

Usually, these warm and cold springs manifest themselves within continental zones.
An example for this is Iceland where people use the warm springs to supply themselves
with heat and energy – just as Plato put it.

Yet the Würm Ice Age 12 000 years ago is not a suitable candidate to have reduced
the sea level along the Atlantic Ridge. Did, then, the catastrophe in the Atlantic Ocean
indeed happen? That desaster with its devastating earthquakes and inundations that
caused the mid-Atlantic Ridge to sink? Or is it all about an inundation of the Caribbean
area with its shallow waters? Also, the point in time when the glaciers melted would
perfectly meet the time of the disappearance of Atlantis as has been indicated by Plato.

Read the following excerpt from the Critias dialogue:

“(...)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; this war I am
going to describe. (...)“
