Atlantis never sank and the Egyptian Neith priest identified by Plutarch as Sonchis of Sais never said it did.

What he actually said is that the Pelasgians of Athens "sank into the earth" whereas Atlantis "disappeared in the depths of the sea."

"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." -- Sonchis of Sais, priest, ~600 B.C.

Don't forget the rest of the quote

. 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.

Cute, Ostanes. That's a perversion of the word "subsided."  Embarrassed I don't know of any definition of the word that would fit your usage. And where is there a shoal of mud in or around Antartica, covered by ice? I doubt anyone would know there was frozen mud underneath all that ice. I sincerely doubt any ancient Egyptian or Greek travelers would've made it that far south.

And Antarctica does not face Gadira (Cadiz, Spain). Plato drew a pretty clear picture of the location of Atlantis. If the large island (NOT continent, please!) existed, this would've been the perfect place for it -- right along a tectonic plate boundary. Over 90% of all mountains are formed near tectonic plate boundaries, as are numerous islands, like the Philippines, where I currently live. You might want to check out my video on "Why the Philippines will Not be the Next Atlantis." And if you want sources and more details, check out the article on "Geology of Atlantis," on the same website.

Dear Mrs CAROLYN  SILVER,

Thank you
for this Link to this Book," Atlantis found "
It does however feature the original
false location theories around Spain.

I think that the former Nickname of this
Writer, Carl Martin, was " WIND "( who had the same Theory.)
(Now Lone-Star 77.)

About Subsidence or Subduction of an Island Atlantis,
Whoever can corroberate that a if any Mega-Tsunami could EVER
sink a City or Continent 150 m lower ?!

Didn't PLATO mention that Atlantis sunk beneath the( Elevated !)
waves of a raised SpringFlood? And Thus not beneath Mean-Sealevel?
I myself cannot read Greek. but I can understand THAT much ! aBalooney.

B.T.W.  Could you please find out, pretty please,
what is the present Nick Name of Mr. Cedric Leonnard ?
I cannot seem to locatre HIM on this Website-Index
and neither could Mr.'Atalante' earlier.

That is strange because Mr Leonnard has commented
several times, yet sparsely,  in the past unfortunately, I always forgot
to check his Pseudonym.  I am Thanking you in advance !

PS.
To tease you, have you checked on the earliest occurence
of the name Atlantic-Ocean in America ?
It crops-up earlier than 1649 but only became official in That year.
Hence on a 1625 - 1645 MAP of Pensylvania it is Non-existant.

instead the Name containing the word 'Ocean' reads rather,
'MARE-Oceanum' ( Britannicum.)and NOT ( Mare-)Oceanum-Atlanticum.
With all your fervent,  relevant Articles seeking,
 you may have overlooked this simple PoŽtic, thus, un-important--detaill Huh

No offences meant !
Sincerely, yours,
Mr. ' Blue-Hue 'dd. May-9 2014

a continent cannot sink but Atlantis on the western horizon was the underworld. In the east, Endtimes Babylon will sink in the Euphrates.
