Smiley,
What's your point? Are you just taking another meaningless poll? Choosing up sides?
You think the Mediterranean is just a harbor? Try swimming it sometime. How big is this "harbor" from length and width? Any idea? Any idea how many countries it spans? Any idea how many islands it had before the break at Gibraltar?
Any idea how many errors in Plato's he said she said Hearsay tale from Salon? Any idea how many people live around this harbor? Who called it a harbor? Plato? Obviously Plato is another one who doesn't know what he is talking about.
However, one should carefully recall that what the ancients called by the name of Atlantic Ocean, or others such as Outer Ocean, Kronius Oceanus, Mare Magnum, Mare Oceanum, etc., was not the same one we now address by that name. As we discuss in detail elsewhere, the Atlantic Ocean (or simply "Ocean") of the ancients of the times of Plato, Herodotus, Aristotle and others was the whole of the earth encircling ocean. This difference in nomenclature is essential, for it ties with the root of the problem of Atlantis, and explains why all researchers so far have failed to find the true site of Atlantis.
