Except it is too old to be Plato's Atlantis, unless it has been misdated.

Has anyone, those of you that have studied Plato intimately, gotten a feeling/intuition that Plato's account of Atlantis is something more, much more than "meets the eye?" About something relating to the Supernatural; meaning God? With this hypothesis in mind (the mind's eye that is), what if Atlantis is not in the past?

I have always been a bit uncomfortable with the idea of Atlantis as a metaphor for something else. I don't believe Atlantis was some kind of a present mystery, there is too much circumstantial evidence of a civilization in the west, unacknowledged in ancient history, around the time Plato puts it. What do you think it was a metaphor for?
