First off i want to know if you all believe in the existence of Atlantis? I never even heard about it until recently when i was looking on the history channel....But from what i saw on the show is that the Europeans are descendants of the Atlantians, and that they are planning to leave the planet Earth before the end of the world...I was blowned away by this i dont know if it is true or not but it was interesting to me.....Did anyone else see this episode and do you all believe in Atlantis?
If anything, I believe Atlantis is a myth. It may have been based on old memories of the Minoan civilization. But the story may just as well have been completely made up by Plato. The whole extraterrestrial/Aryan thing was made up by 19th- and 20th-century psychics.
I see the History Channel as gotten even better since i stopped watching it.
Geopgraphical Atlantis as a seperate lost continent seems highly unlikely geologicaly speaking. Possibilities arise of settlements flooded as sea levels rose after the last ice age, but this wasa global phenomenon, so unspirisingly you get your various regionalists claiming that theres is the real Atlantis, with not alot to carry the argument. As far as Plato is concerned, i'm included to take the view that he drew from actual events like the destruction of Minoan civilisation, in order to idealise what he envisioned as some sort of ideal society.
