  • What is your favourite theory concerning Atlantis?

    Atlantis is one of those all time enduring legends, that still captures popular imagination today.

    This thread is not about if Atlantis was real or not, nor where it might be located. It is simply about your favourite myth concerning this fabled city, no matter how dumb.

          I always found the theories of Atlantis to be entertaining. My favourite at this time is the Antarctica theory.

            I remember Fingerprints of the Gods by G Hancock had the genesis of civilisation begin there. Believed it when I first read it, much like Holy Blood.....

              I don't have a favorite but the strangest conspiracy theory for me is that Atlantis was located in the Sahara Desert because of the prehistoric fish skeletons that were once found there. But it just explains that Sahara was once a large lake or was once submerged in the ocean. I think if Atlantis were real, Atlantis is still somewhere at the bottom of the sea too far for humans to reach.

                It's located between the Old Testament and the New Testament along with the Arc.

                    I was thinking more along the lines of geography, more or less

                        There's always Sir Terry Prachett's lost continent of Ku which took 20 years to sink

                        Apparently the most embarrassing continental collapse ever, as the population soon adapted to having to wade....

                        It was abandoned - gradually - by hordes of old men fleeing in small boats, eager to reach new islands where being the possessors of genuinely occult knowledge might well be a way of getting girls.

                          I'm not sold on Hancock's hypotheses on their face value, but I did find myself agreeing with what his research assistant had said were the requirements. To my mind Antarctica is the only place that would have been large enough, with the appropriate geological properties to have hosted such a civilization. I can't think of anywhere else that is large enough.

                              When the Sky Fell: In Search of Atlantis

                              by Rand Flem-Ath, Rose Flem-Ath
                              , Colin Wilson (Introduction)

                              The mystery of Atlantis the legendary advanced civilization described in ancient texts, has been solved at last. Scientific evidence, exciting new research, and the breakthrough discovery of an amazing Egyptian map prove without a doubt that this lost continent did exist...and reveal where its ruins can be found.

                              But the fascinating truth about Atlantis also leads to a chilling conclusion about the environmental catastrophe that destroyed it. Now you can find out how the forces that shattered the first great civilization on Earth can happen again, bringing the end of the world to us all!
