The Atlantis Discussion

Hello everyone, I would like to start a discussion about the location of Atlantis. After researching Atlantis for many years, I can now recognize all of the existing terrain features Plato wrote about. Thanks to internet maps we can visit all of the places he described. The process of decoding, reading, and discussing Plato’s story will take us on a tour through both the former lost city and the great plain of Atlantis. If you don’t agree with my decoding, it’s  oaky. Here is a brief article to get us started:

What Do You Think About Atlantis?

What do you believe about Atlantis? Do you think the story is true of False? Was the story made up by Plato to make a point about morality? Is the story partially true? Where is Atlantis located and what makes you think so? Have you actually read Plato’s version of his story or you only read what others wrote about what he wrote? Do you think Atlantis will ever be found? What have you read lately and why should I read it? Do you think the story of Atlantis has been encoded because the language has changed over time? What size was Atlantis According to Plato?

The Plain of Atlantis: Identified

Forums: 

Plato described  the Florida Plain as the plain of Atlantis. Here is his quote:

“Looking towards the sea, but in the centre of the whole island, there was a plain which is said to have been the fairest of all plains and very fertile.”

While looking across from the center of the boundless continent, you can see the Atlantis Plain which, was Florida, which is very fertile.

The Americas: Plato’s Boundless Continent

Forums: 

Plato described the Americas as a boundless continent. Here is his quote: 

“for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbour, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.”

South America is Opposite to Atlantis (North America)

Forums: 

Plato indirectly described South America as the continent opposite to the continent of Atlantis. Here is his quote: 

“and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean”; This made up a boundless continent.

Atlantis Found! Matched to Plato's Description!

Forums: 

Plato made the mistake of calling the continent of Atlantis an island or this was a mistake in translation. North America really was the Continent of Atlantis. Here is his quote:

“and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands,”

The island of Atlantis was much smaller.
