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.

Yeah, desire, I am with you. Santorini does not stand a chance. there is not a single element to support the idea of thera being Atlantis. Minoans were indeed Greeks or predecessors of Greeks while Atlanteans weren't.
Plato specified that in one night and day of misfortune (rain and earthquakes) the Island disappeared. Thera did not submerge, rather it blew up. Is not even near any of the possible locations for the pillars.
