One aspect of the "Thera-was-Atlantis" idea that has always bothered me, yet has never been addressed, was what Plato stated about the circular Center City of Atlantis. At the very center of the city, which was ringed by three canals, and on a basically flat plain, was a "high hill" with a flat top. It had two large temples erected on it, had several springs, and had trees. I've never understood how a volcano's cone, one that was more like a mountain, could possibly be construed as anything like Plato described. But when you are making an argument that "a rat is identical to a cat," you have to overlook most details.

e) The criteria of Atlantis having different color rocks wasn't explained at all to us during filming. But Cuba has black, white, and red rocks. Andros has black, white, and red rocks. The film crew actually filmed quite a few during our visit to Andros. This was all ignored also. Interestingly, when the documentary discussed Thera's "red rocks" what they showed was a white rock with a red stain measuring a few inches in size.

The mainstream scientific community, for whatever reasons, seeks to completely discredit Cayce, discredit those who disagree with the Atlantis-in-the-Mediterranean idea, and discredit those who suspect Plato's story might have been true. The National Geographic certainly supported the mainstream idea. In sum, if you ignore almost everything Plato stated, Thera fits Atlantis almost perfectly. If you ignore all the evidence from Bimini and Andros, show the worst footage you can get from the two locations, and ask a geologist who has never been to either place for an opinion, you can assert that both formations are natural. So, to those who have asked me about it, that's the shortest answer I can give. I'm neither surprised nor disappointed by what they did.
