(there's one interesting post I've noticed -- a mural in the village/town of Akrotiri that actually depicts the city rings of Atlantis).
Those are not discoveries of actual Atlantis if we believe Plato, since they ignore one very important element of the description -- in Timaeus (http://goldenplanetforum.com/library/plato/timaeus.txt) and Critias (http://goldenplanetforum.com/library/plato/critias.txt) it is written that Atlantis disappeared under the sea, and mud and shallows are present in this portion of the ocean because of it.
It is so striking that the vast majority of comments on Slashdot were from people who have never read those two dialogues or never thought about what they read.
And don't you find it strange that people are looking for Atlantis everywhere but never in the middle of the Atlantic ocean? Those of you who have not read Timaeus and Critias -- please do so and share your comments here. In my opinion, Plato's description in both dialogues is clear enough!
What a coincidence!Italian scholars in Rome are debating the controversial theory that Sardinia is the lost island of Atlantis, and whether the theory merits further research.
The theory, offered by Italian journalist Sergio Frau, has drawn both international acclaim and criticism, the Italian news agency ANSA said Friday.
The gathering of academics, archaeologists, geologists and historians coincides with the opening of an exhibition on Frau's ideas, outlined in his book "The Pillars of Hercules.
I believe there has been some investigations in this region but, so far, they haven't found it. Still, it's a big ocean to check and a lot of time has passed - maybe it's buried beneath not just sludge but possibly tonnes of rock - there may have been several seaquakes over time (this is purely my supposition).
By the way, a more detailed article has been produced on this Sardinia exhibition. Check out: http://ansa.it/main/notizie/awnplus/eng ... 31604.html

heavily features the weird orange line....much debate about it on youtube...doesnt seem to follow mapping lines some say its 'something'...as opposed to the black one, or that black triangle thing....? anyway. Found it entertaining, and very slim but possible to me since Ive only paid a little more attention to it.
Seems very very unlikely though? Technically, being under ice is under water, but ... not sure what some of the artifact photos he shows, are. Got bored, figured Id check it out.
What do you think?
First thing first. After watching your video, I still think there's still much more about Atlantis. I am also a little bit skeptical about using wikipedia sources for such a sensible subject...tokarski21 wrote:After a lot of thought and research, I realized that there actually is enough real scientific information about the ancient world available to us to solve the mystery of Atlantis - so that's what I've attempted in this 8 minute video:
What do you think?
However, I do think that your video was in fact inspiring Don't know if you agree with me, but understanding the message behind Atlantis, not just covering the facts, is what is more important
It's called "The Legend of Atlantis: It's Time to Wake Up".
The Url is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVSAGv4k ... re=related
Its got a brief history of the creation of the world as well...
Also interesting is that in TP it was said that greek alphabet is very close to that of Atlantis / Mu. Now the Greek philosopher Plato knew about Atlantis and also believed that main elements are constructed from platonic solids, which might not be that far from the truth after all based on some of the theorists ideas out there. For example Nassim Haramein and Dan Winter.. It's very interesting how some of the pieces of the puzzle click so nicely together.. but we're still just too far from solving anything, like always..
