So are you saying, in your first quote there, that Aztlan and Atlantis are NOT completely independent traditions? In a previous post you said that they have nothing to do with each other. You can’t have it both ways, sorry.
Sorry mate, but now you’re trying to contrive a strawman. I never said that they were not completely independant traditions. I provided links to discussions which show that they really aren’t very similar at all.
And just to re-iterate a point you seem to be missing, but the Atlantis Legend isn’t even a bona fide myth. It’s a rheotorical device which Plato used in his discussions of what he considered to be an ideal society.
There is nothing more to it than what he said in his two dialogues. it appears NOWHERE in any other mythology, Greek or otherwise. Everything which has been made of it since that time amount to nothing more than fairly modern attempts to overthink the problem and read more into it than Plato ever intended.
With that out of the way, perhaps you can answer this question: Why are you here?
Not that you don’t have a perfect right to be, but it looks to me an awful lot like you’re not looking for explainations or understanding but for confirmation of some of your own preconceived notions.
If this is the case, then I don’t think anybody here is going to be able to help you out.
