Could memories of this cataclysmic event have been preserved across millennia until they
were recounted eventually to Spanish explorers that reached in the Bahamas and Caribbean
in the wake of 1492? If so, were the same tales told to Phoenician and Carthaginian voyagers
who visited these same islands prior to Plato's age?

Did Plato come to hear not only of the islands which existed in the outer ocean, but also of
the cataclysm which once devastated this self same region?

Did it cause the landmass to be inundated by flood waters, splitting it into individual islands -
temporarily at first, but then more permanently when eventually the ice fields of North America,
Europe and Asia finally began to melt, causing the sea-level to rise by as much as 100 metres?

Thus was the sinking of Atlantis a memory of the sub-mergence of both the former Bahaman
landmass and the low-lying regions of the Caribbean?

Certainly we can say that all this took place around the very same time that Plato tells us
Atlantis was destroyed by 'one terrible day and night of earthquakes and floods'.

Moreover, if the Caribbean islands did once form part of Atlantis, then it would mean that
part of the landmass was still above water today.

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
