Atlantis: myth or long lost history?
The tantilizing story of Atlantis comes from many mystified believers, and yet it has one originator.
Is it possible with todays technology this age old riddle can be verified, and if so, will it establish a truth to what Atlantis truly really was?
The 'written-originator' of this unique tale comes from the Greek philosopher Plato.
His story of Atlantis comes to us in form of his work Timaeus and Critias.
(Timaeus being a Socratic dialogue, written in about 360 B.C.)
Plato's 'Crities' relays he himself overheard the story of Atlantis from his Grandfather, who had learned it from the Athenian statesman Solon (circa 300 years before Plato's time). Solon had learned it from an Egyptian priest, who said it had happened 9,000 years before that.
Plato describes Atlantis as a powerful and advanced kingdom that sank, in a night and a day, into the Ocean around 9,600 B.C.
The Island of Atlantis is described as:
larger then Lybia and Asia put together
and was the way to other islands,
and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent -
which surrounded the true ocean;
for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbor, having a narrow entrance,
but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.
Located in the Atlantic just beyond the Pillars of Heracles- generally assumed to mean the straight of Gibraltar. Atlantian culture was advanced and it had a constitution suspiciously similar to the one outlined in Plato's " Republic".
It was protected by the god Poseidon, who makes his son Atlas king and name sake of the Island and the Ocean that surrounded it. As the Atlanteans grew powerful, their ethical values declined.
Their armies eventually conquered Africa as far as Egypt and Europe as far as Tyrrhenia (Etruscan Italy) before driven back by an Athenian- led alliance. Later on, by way of divine punishment, the Island was beset by earthquakes and floods, and sank into the muddy sea. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island.
The ancient Greeks were divided as to wether Plato's story was to be taken as history or mere metaphor.
Since the 19th century there has been renewed interest in linking Plato's Atlantis to historical locations.
Atlantis has been an object of fascination among western philosophers and historians for nearly 2,400 years.
Following the description itemised by Plato, is it possible using todays technology to turn back time..to follow the footsteps left by our Grandcestors?
Using Google Earth as a 'search tool' we are able to investigate topicgraphically and also oceanic floors to examine the evidence to this nearly 12,000 year old myth many today are still in search of.
Here presented is a possible location using Ancient Agenda's personal Google Earth.
By drawing a line through the straights of Gibraltar without devitations,
we find it unobstructed until we reach the Central America's region.
By leaving Plato's narrow entrance, within the Straits of Heracles (as only a harbor), from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent - which surrounded the true ocean;
Plato's stipulation of a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.
Following his instructions reveals a location leading to an outer ring of islands, directly into a rectangular basin, mid-way point to the America's.
Larger then Lybia and Asia put together and the way to other islands.
From these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent.
(the entire continent of Central, North & South America's)
Beyond these islands leads to fascinating unexplained ocean floor anomolies also bordering the infamous 'Bermuda Triangle'.
Many other than Plato have described a prior civilization that possibly possessed a technology greater than todays society enjoys. Over 2000 books have been written on this subject including speculations of a missing continent of Lumeria, a civilization missing in time with remnanats of an ancient unfathomable technology left strewn across mother earth as reffered to by Donnely, Hancock, Cayce [to name but a few] also mentioned in the book of Genesis, known as the 'Tower of Babel'.
The 'sleeping prophet' Edgar Cayce in 1933 proclaimed that "near what is known as Bimini, records about Atlantis would be found, there are portions of Atlantean temples to be found."
According to Cayce, the area known in time-before as 'Alta', extended an area including present day Florida.
Located in this area was established a small island known as an Atlantean-outpost and should not be mistaken for the true Atlantis.
Beyond this gate-way of islands presents the America's with all it's wondrous Northern Earthen effigy mounds, Central pyramids and Southern stone cast megalithic statements of grandeur creations.
The mysterious underwater road near Bimini, around 50 miles east of Miami, Florida was discovered with his team of researchers by underwater archaeologist Joseph M. Valentine. Initially one underwater structure was located leading to later discoveries of two additional pathways proving constructed as artificial structures.
Initial measurements to each of the underwater roads measures in length at 'half a mile' each composing of megalithic stones measuring approximately four meters in width.
Other hidden structures believed lost to this area of Central America are said to contain In the Caribbean a region known as “the Tongue of the Ocean.” This is the rumored location to a 'cyrstal pyramid' near the coastline of the Bahamas.
This area's acquired name is verified by a tongue-shaped portion to the seabed floor that extends from the island before dropping sharply into greater depths.
Underwater archaeologist's off the coast of Cuba using Sonar detection have released information describing a Pyramidial City.
As the Atlantis theory has never been verified, due to Plato's description and the advanced megalith's at all Cardinal directions of Earth, the Ancient Agenda team speculates the myth was a fabrication to an advanced global civilization.
In perspective, the Atlantis island mythology could actually have been an 'outpost meeting area' for the world's previous Global elite NATO type establishment.
Science has provided 95 percent of Earth's underwater world remains unexplored.
Using todays technology and the vast resources provided by past investigators of history, the Atlantean mythology may still be secured in watery depths, places yet searched, enigmas underwater not fully explored or yet located.
Aquatic areas where we together might uncover, distinguish and rectify the lost history of our divine planet finally piecing together the archaic monuments left by our Grandcestors that in continual silence ask our minds "What's This For..?".
“Through violent earthquakes and floods, in a single day and night of misfortune … [the whole race]
… was swallowed up by the Earth and the island of Atlantis
… disappeared into the depths of the sea.” – Plato.
