ITT: Locate true Atlantis and her colonies
>>
Antarctica.

The Earth's pole got shifted 90 degrees.
That's why the flood happened since the body of water got displaced.

As for it's colonies it was all over the world, this was the "survivors"

Atlantis was just conceived as a thought exercise for philosophers. Thus, its location was in the brain of a long dead dude.

ORLY?
>>
>>14879123
True.

Portuguesefag here. Several scrolls and statues were found in the Azores when it was discovered in the 1400s. It's also common knowledge that various expeditions were sent to the region in order to find underwater structures during the 80s and they reported to have found pillars and other man made stuff.

>>14879315
Beat me to the curve, he's correct, it was just a made up story.
1. -Only- Plato speaks of Atlantis, there are literally -No- Other claims that say it existed -nor- writings of it.

So lets say I'll write a book about earth being ran by cats but then they went back to their planet leaving us alone and 1000 years later the book is accepted as truth mainly for the fact that no one is disproving me nor speaking about it, and it's just me mentioning this.

Do you see the problem with it?

>inb4 it's only a family tale that Solon shared with Plato

Well then, Solon got it from the Egyptians who also supposedly written about it? However, there's no writings about Atlantis besides the Platos one, if it were to be true, we'd at least find -Some- writings about it from other people, but that's not the case, Plato is literally the only one.


2. All this time, search and etc, there's still no evidence of it existing.

>Inb4 Plato got coordinates wrong.

They stopped looking at the geographical part for a long time now as they assumed that the first time and still not even a trace.


3. http://www.lrb.co.uk/v30/n12/james-davidson/plato-made-it-up

He literally says it's a story. It presents a philosophical dilemma and the way he chose to portray and explain this was by creating the story of Atlantis. Conveniently, the story part has been ignored for long enough that people started to think it was real.

Actually, it didn't exist in the sense of how it's portrayed in the story.

People started to question its existence because the story of Sodom and Gomorrah fit the criteria so well that it could have 'been talking about Atlantis and another city'.

That's because Atlantis existed and was destroyed before written language was even invented, before the Sumerians started poking markings in clay, and before Egyptians got bored enough to scribble on the walls.

Writing didn't just up and become a story telling media over night. It probably was one of the slowest developing technologies of all time. I'm sure spoken language carried on a lot of the info/details and story tradition for centuries.

Actually, analysis of wikipedia have found it to be generally about as accurate as the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

The most thorough and objective researcher on ancient human origins is Andrew Collins, whose verdict is that Atlantis is the underwater area that surrounds what is now known as the Caribbean -- and more precisely, Cuba and Hispaniola:

>>14887294
I was gonna call you a faggot, because I've always heard Aztlan described as some kind of Eden full of greenery type in the Southwest US, not a high tech island city as Atlantis is usually described as. But after doing some research, I found out that there's more than just one version of the story. One codex describes it as being controlled by tyrannical elites called the Azteca Chicomoztoca. And another even depicts it as pic related. Pretty interesting, actually.

So much this. There is an area of sea bed that corresponds to the description given by Plato in several particulars.
1. He says Atlantis lies outside the Med (beyond the pillars of Hercules). He says it is connected to a chain of other island, and a continent on the far side. Thus he predicts the existence of America pretty accurately. And describes the sea bed of the west Atlantic!
2. A large rectangular plain, with mountains on three sides. There is such a thing on the sea bed near the Azores.
3. A mountain near the coast "broke off all around". There is a flat topped mountain on the edge of this area.

There is also a most curious set of (for want of a better word) lines on the sea bed near this mountain, which is approx 40 miles across. This is square, and has the appearance of a city layout. Remember, this is under a couple of miles of ocean.

Have you ever read Critias by Plato? He wrote himself is fictional. Atlantis is the land of Atlas, a mythical figure. But Atlantis is the world people work, not have their private life. So the corporations, the farmers land, the schools (from the teachers point of view), the church (from the preachers point of view), the airport (from the pilots point of view).

OP here
Was looking through thread an saw this.

My best guesses have always been within this pic.

What I have considered when looking at this region is what could have been above sea level before the end of the Ice Age.

What I found was there are only a few good candidate islands - and then even those would require around ~150m in tectonic rifting/subsidence over the last few millennia to have been an Ice Age island.
>Slow and/or sudden tectonic subsidence would make sense
>Annual average movement < -2cm/yr (for the last 12ka)
>May not look like much yet many of this little islands are still ~100km across

And since sharing is caring...
Here's a cool applet from the related pic.
http://merkel.zoneo.net/Topo/Applet/

>>14895173
Possible.
>No doubt would it be within an Atlantic Empires influence/colonization
But applet/sea-level record demonstrate more of a ~2km geologic height change need.

You don't have to look for Atlantis. The story of the place was an allegory about the arrogance of man and the subsequent burial at sea they earned for it.

Try to think of it more as a bit of foreshadowing. Also broaden your idea of what "Atlantis" might be. Think bigger. Much bigger.

Again, you won't have to look for Atlantis.
