Plato wrote of a mythical city of Atlantis, and Idiots have been looking for it ever since…ascribing the name to every ruined city they find….
And now…another one, and of course THIS one is THE real one!:

A U.S.-led research team may have finally located the lost city of Atlantis, the legendary metropolis believed swamped by a tsunami thousands of years ago in mud flats in southern Spain.

“This is the power of tsunamis,” head researcher Richard Freund told Reuters.

Dr Freund is an archaeologist from the University of Hartford, Conn. I cannot find anywhere that the ‘findings’ have been examined and discussed by other archaeologist…i.e. peer reviewed, or even discussed among geologists or other related scientists before being published/released.

You may want to check the University of Hartford, Conn.  I wouldn’t be surprised if you find that it’s one of those shell schools that have no standing in the scientific community.

It is a brick and mortar school! However, I don’t know what its standing is in the Scientific community.
It is a liberal arts college….it has no standing in the scientific community!

The whole Atlantis “myth” is quite the cash cow, isn’t it?

Think about it: One mention each in only two of Plato’s Dialogues, and very likely more books have been written about Atlantis then any other subject.

That’s a whole lotta effort for two minor paragraphs!

It is certain that there have been more books written about ‘Atlantis’, than about Plato! LOL

Hey! I went to a liberal arts school that has excellent standing in the scientific community, especially forest ecology and geology. smile

Here’s something that the Atlantis fanboys never, ever consider: Plato died in 347 BC - or 2358 years ago. Pretty much anything would seem advanced to somebody who lived back then. The supposedly advanced Atlantean civilization, assuming it ever existed in the first place, probably never advanced beyond bronze weapons and indoor plumbing. Sure, those are fairly important achievements, but that’s all there is to it. As our own civilization gets more technologically advanced, the myth of Atlantis gets inflated too.

Atlantis found “in mud flats in southern Spain.”

They don’t even have any imagination, in the middle of mud flats, how’s that going to sell to hollywood?


Besides, what’s wrong with the X island of Crete being Atlantis?

Don’t worry about where it is, CC.  Hollywood will just change it anyway.  Like how they’re remaking Akira and setting it in New York instead of Tokyo.

Oh good, glad we’re getting this done early this year.
Just not a good year without Atlantis being found at least once, now we just need to kick out an ark finding we’ll be done for the year.

I guess last year’s discover of the real Noah’s Ark is old news, eh

Which one? I recall several. That and some articles about astronauts and actresses (I remember some Baywatch starlet last year) setting out to find it.

I gave up listening to these jokers years ago. Some insanity is just not worth the trouble.

Mmmmm…yeah, it can be. Especially if the latest celebrity brain-deader thinks s/he is covering some new ground when in fact, they’re not doing anything of the kind.

Or how about the way every group that finds it knows they found the one, true Atlantis even when six other groups in six other places are claiming the same thing.  How many Atlantises were there?
