Atlantis; What If?

I never took the time to read Plato’s account of Atlantis, which happens to the source of everything we know about Atlantis. From what I’ve heard it’s not really long and leaves more to the imagination than we’d like to admit, but what if?

What if there was no Atlantis? What if this story about an island full of technologically advanced human beings that sunk below the Atlantic after some cataclysmic event never happened?

What if, Plato made up the story after visiting an island sometime during his lifetime?

I pulled this picture off Wikipedia-Atlantis. Athanasius Kircher‘s map of Atlantis, placing it in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, from Mundus Subterraneus 1669, published in Amsterdam. The map is oriented with south at the top.

The picture on the left is a photo of Atlantis. If you look closely, you will notice Africa to the left, and America to the right. If this is accurate then that means Atlantis would’ve been in the Pacific Ocean somewhere off the Western Coast of the United States, and not the Atlantic Ocean like everyone claims.

This picture I snapped with my camera of an island I saw on Google Map.

The picture on the right is of an island I found on Google Maps. The island is named Mai’ao, and it’s located in the Pacific Ocean. Can you see the similarity between photos? They’re similar-eerily similar.

If what I say doesn’t resonate with you, then consider this; there are many scattered islands in the Pacific Ocean. Maybe, at a time long long ago, they were together and formed one huge land mass in between Africa and America in the Pacific Ocean.
