Hi Julia - you are in a hurry aren't you Cheesy Cheesy  Yes of course we'd need more evidence! Grin

I think it would be better to try to figure out just what the lay of the land was in the supposed time Atlantis existed.  Personally, I think it was a lot farther back than we think.  Then, see if we can find some more of these natural structures, since it's likely that the people took advantage of this natural formation, especially because it would protect them from wild animals and such and then eventually as they progressed and built irrigation for crops, and boats to travel, the set-up would work very well.  Just think about it.  They could watch nature at work and copy it.  A river or two comes down from the mountains, enters these canals and egresses out the other side.  The water is always there as it's a catch basin also, and then they observe say, a log, floating down the river with some sort of animal stranded on top.  The idea strikes them that they too, could ride a log and eventually, they decide it would be better to ride something flat, so they make rafts.  And on and on it goes.  Then say one day after a flood or something, they see the water has eroded a cave or tunnel in the side of the surrounding embankment.  They get busy and dig the rest of the way, and now have access to the sea and fishing, etc.  Ain't nature wonderful!!!!  She's a great teacher for sure.

What does seem strange to me is that if this Richat structure has been there all along, say for millions of years, why isn't it covered in sand already?  Supposedly the sand is encroaching now, so why didn't it encroach for all these years?

An open-minded view of the past allows for an unprejudiced glimpse into the future.
