Which god? The Greeks believed in quite a few of them. Are you saying the Plato could see into the future?

The official state religion of the Greeks does point to a multitude of Gods, Demi-Gods, and so on. It's referred to by us as "Greek Mythology." And Plato's Atlantis does refer to them, obviously, especially Poseidon, as any Atlantis buff ought to know. That is, precisely, the "myth" in the tale. However, it's obvious that you are not intimately, familiar with Plato, nor with the early Christian Fathers and the Platonists, and Neo-Platonists. Upon careful study of those sources, it becomes obvious that Plato/Socrates believed in only one God; the Father of all humans, and Creator of everything. The first section of the Timaeus makes this very clear.

Atlantis can only be a myth, a very old and long lived legend, if sought in light of Greek Mythology. I mean, how can anyone, seriously seek to locate it when it's origin is attributed to a Mythological Greek God, Poseidon? Why! We have scientific men and means seeking a "legend" originating in mythology. The atheist scientific community has no tolerance for even one Hebrew/ Christian/Muslim God, let alone dozens of Greek gods. Then add all the discordance on time tables, locations, size, and lack of any scientific approved relics or artifacts or anything of such kind which can shed one ounce of evidence, and there you have it; pure myth. Anything anyone finds or points to, geologically, as remotely resembling Atlantis will always result inconclusive.

However, seek Atlantis as a "supernatural" account of something to come to light, then you, or anyone else seeking Atlantis has a chance of finding it. But not as a place or civilization named Atlantis. Not under the sea either. It will be something of a different name. Something representative of the tale, as written by Plato. But this hypothesis requires not only intimate knowledge of the cited sources above, but also a giant leap of faith that mandates all serious seekers to think way outside the box.
