Was This Atlantis?
Examination of the possible location and the reason of its disappearance.
Evidence in the myths.
all know the story of Plato, the dialogues of Timaeus and Critias,
where he referred to Atlantis. Since that date, 380 years before
Christ, we know the existence of a engulfed country perceived by many
of us as a paradise. But Plato was not the only person who spoke of
Atlantis. There are other myths and legends that are more or less
explicit referencing to a country that once existed, but which no
longer exist to this day.
commentator of Plato, Proclus, has said that Crantor has also
visited the city of Sais in Egypt, as Solon had done 300 years
before him. An Egyptian priest had shown him a pillar of gold, with
inscriptions in hieroglyphs, telling the story of Atlantis, just as
he did to his famous predecessor.
chronicler of ancient Egypt, Manetho, had confirmed the existence of
these pillars and claimed that shortly before the flood,
Thoth-Hermes has inscribed on a pillar the ancient wisdom, so it
would not be lost in the cataclysm.
contemporary historian of Jesus Christ, Josephus, says that Seth, in
order not to lose the wisdom and astronomical knowledge in a
disaster, had erected two pillars, a stone and a brick, on which
they were enrolled. He said that these pillars existed in the
country until Siriad's days. The era of Jesus Christ, then!
tells us how the walls of the main city of Atlantis were decorated
with silver, gold, bronze and other precious metals. The Atlanteans
visibly possessed huge amounts of these metals. They also fully
mastered the technology of alloys. Some wonder if the amount of
copper and tin from the Bronze Age could have come from existing
mines at the time. Legends said that tin came from mysterious
islands of tin. Their existence have even been mentioned in the
Bible. But if Plato was right, this mysterious island could well
have been Atlantis.
historian of ancient Egypt, Manetho, places the beginning of the
dynasty of the “Spirits of the Dead” 5'813 years
before Menes, the first Pharaoh who unified Egypt. Pharaoh Menes
had reigned somewhere between 3'100 and 3'800 years before Christ,
which gives us, roughly, the same date that Plato had advanced us
concerning the destruction of Atlantis.
Mayan codex, translated by Auguste le Plongeon, tells the tragedy of Lemuria and
Atlantis. These islands have disappeared in a terrible cataclysm.
They told that there had been millions of deaths and disasters that
occurred 8'060 years before writing the story. The story itself was
written 1'500 years before Christ, the early pre-classic Maya.
Which is roughly the same date as that of the dialogues of Plato.
Bolivien – German Archaeologist, Arthur Posnansky had long
studied the site of Tiahuanaco, the Inca civilization of Peru, and
concluded that the region was elevated to 3'000 meters in altitude.
According to him, the disaster took place from 9'000 to 10'000 years
Mayans tell in their myths that they were at the root of a continent
called “Atlan”, which they had to leave due to a
volcanic cataclysm that had destroyed their country. Some
interpretations, however, have found that this “Atlan”
should be in the Pacific Ocean.
Celts tell, like many other nations, that they came from a overseas
country. This country was destroyed by a terrible cataclysm. This
paradise is also called “Island of Glass”, “The
Island of Women”, “Avalon”,
“Emhain”, “Ys” and so on. The
legend of the disappearance of “Ys” is very
similar to the accounts of Plato.
is a Greek myth, where Zeus fights furiously with Typhoon. The same
myth is told in the Vedas in India, where according to Hindu myth
the gods fought the giants. For many, this battle was nothing but a
war with the Atlanteans. The allegory of those battles could
however be the raging elements, destroying Atlantis with fire
(volcanic) and water (the ocean). Even if we assume that the fire
was volcanic, this fire could well be that of Zeus and could have
come from heaven, so, an asteroid falling (the fire from heaven)
into the ocean thus.
of the Amazon jungle of Brazil, Tucanos, Desana, Barasanas and
others, claiming to come from a paradise drown by a flood. They say
they came by boat and have crossed an ocean of milk.
