Hello ATS,

I'm watching a Youtube video and in it, the video creator lists some interesting points as to why the Eye of the Sahara or what's known as the Richat Structure is the remains of Atlantis. The most significant point he made in my opinion is a map drawn 2400 yrs ago by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, a map which clearly shows Atlantis in Northwest Africa where the Richat structure is. I know YouTube isn't a source that's respected here at ATS but the guy in the video makes a compelling point backed up with evidence. I see that there are earlier posts on this subject here:

www.youtube.com...

But I think there is an update of information in this other video. Check it out, ATS!




This would be epic if proven true! I the Richat Structure proves to be the Ancient city of Atlantis then I think it could change the world! I think there should be a scientific team assembled to investigate. This could do so much to piece together information about the ancient world which has been lost. Heck, if someone paid me then I'd go and dig myself; I am Lostbook, after all, and I came to ATS to find information that has been lost or forgotten to the sands of time. Maybe the secrets of Atlantis are waiting to be found! What say you, ATS?

I have to make a correction: the map drawn by Herodotus showing Atlantis in NW Africa is 2500 yrs old not 2400.

Party over if Hawass or similar got there first.

Is Hawass still around? I thought he retired or something like that....?

You get an idea of the scale of that place if you use google earth VR and fly around it. Insane.

Awesome video, thanks for sharing that!

Everything I have read and researched myself over the years suggests to me that Atlantis was a real place. We have a lot of lost history. Is the Eye of the Sahara Atlantis? Real archeology might prove that or it might be suppressed as many things are, but a proper investigation there would help.

My take on things was that Atlantis is buried beneath the Antarctic ice. It wasn’t always under ice. Odd things have happened to this planet.

Still, the structure in Mauritanian is compelling, but with some geographic complications that will be hard to explain I think.

You do realize that Hawass has been out of a position of power for a decade now and was an Egyptologist so he would have nothing to do with NW Africa period let alone false claims of Atlantis.

He was involved in a scandal (other than the hidden scandal of hiding inconvenient discoveries and worse) which had something to do with the black market, smuggling and other less than palatable accusations.

I saw that video quite awhile ago and did some follow-up and I believe they have performed some diggings in that area and did find wood, fish bones, etc which suggests at one time it was flooded. Until major digging can take place it is so difficult to determine because the surface of the earth has changed a lot in that period of time. It is my opinion this location is the most plausible for the location of Atlantis based on the location and the satellite views.

He was accused of that by idiots and rivals. He was cleared of those accusations. That was well before the new government came in and installed their own Director.

As for the OP topic, Herodotus never drew a world map. Herodotus never created any map at all.

There have been maps drawn that represent various people's ideas of what Herodotus may have thought the world looked like. These are based entirely on Herodotus' descriptions in the "Histories."

In one of the books of the "Histories," Herodotus describes the people that live "in the shadow" of a mountain he refers to as "Mount Atlas," which, from his own words, is a mountain in the Atlas mountain range - north of the eye.

He calls these people "Atlantes," sometimes translated as "Atlanteans," because of the proximity of that mountain and range.

The Atlas Mountains and, presumably, Mt. Atlas (whichever peak that refers to) were named after the Titan Atlas. At one time, the Atlas Mountains represented the far distant edge of the known world, and the Atlas myth had him holding up the sky at the edge of the world. Thus the name of the range.

Please note that Atlas was the son of Iapetus, one of the Titans. Poseidon, an Olympian and son of Cronus (a different Titan) was (according to Plato) the father of King Atlas of Atlantis. According to Plato, it is from king Atlas that Atlantis got its name, which also led to the name of the ocean (Atlantic.) Atlantis literally translates as a possessive form of Atlas (The Atlantis Sea is the "Sea of Atlas," as the Atlantic Ocean is the "Ocean of Atlas.")

So Herodotus' "Atlantes" are not in any way related to the fictional people in Plato's allegory; rather Herodotus called them that due to their proximity to a mountain range bearing the name of the Titan Atlas, not the king Atlas.

The Sahara is thought to have been an ocean, albeit transient, at some time, and large fossils found over the years, but not sure it is safe to go there in some areas.

The only problem i have is those ridges you see are between 6 and 9 ft high meaning that would have made a very shallow water system.

Maybe the ridges were more pronounced way back then.......?

Or built upon, as in they were the foundations. Should be easy enough to prove.

There's also the problem of the 50 stadia canal to the sea. The Eye is WAAAAYYY further from the sea than that, and no sign of the canal anyway. Whole idea is just dumb. This is a geological dome which has had its top eroded over literally the last ONE HUNDRED MILLION YEARS.

Don't make the mistake of thinking this site has not been investigated - multiple times by various specialists.
Pre-Acheulean stone tools have been found there. That's Homo Erectus, man. That should tell you that specialists have been (and will be) investigating the site.
