In the Bahamas there’s a resort called Atlantis, it’s a vacation paradise. Atlantis, however, was originally mentioned a long-long time ago in the works of Plato, Timaeus and Critias.
Plato himself was a Philosopher who lived in Athens during the Classical period of Ancient Greece. We’re going back now approximately to 360 B.C., and in his work, Plato mentions a continent sitting in the Atlantic Ocean that was larger than Libya and Asia put together.
Atlantis was a place of great importance partly because of its location at the mouth of what the Greeks called the “Pillars of Heracles.” It was said that Atlantis was a hub, or a central point that made access to both land masses (North America, and Europe) possible. Atlantis was a great super power of its day, and the people who lived on the continent were intelligent and technologically advanced.
Things were going really well on the island until one day, a major cataclysmic event, destroyed the land and sank it below the Atlantic Ocean. Gone, in a single day and night.
There is so much to read about Atlantis. You could spend days on the internet searching websites and discovering material that talks about all kinds things relating to it. I don’t know how true any of it is because again, all we really know about it originates in the works of Plato. Many people would assume him to be the only credible source on the topic, but search for yourself, and see what you come up with.
Personally, I don’t think Atlantis sank. I think Atlantis is here, alive and well. If the continent hasn’t drifted over time, than I think it’s……..GREENLAND! Yes, I think Atlantis is really Greenland. Look at a map.
