Watching the show.  I wish they wouldn't always include the Minoan/Santorini theme on every Atlantis special. That's the theory preferred by people too disinterested to actually look for it.

To summarize: Santorini was too small, too recent and in the wrong location to be Atlantis.  The island DIDN't have concentric circles, but rather a couple of fingers of land surrounding the island, and they were a passive people, not militaristic like Atlantis was.

Also, the disaster of Santorini did NOT ruin their civilization.  They were still making pottery one hundred years later.

Not to mention, the Santorini disaster has now been moved back to now around 1600 bc.

This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean. 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.
