Asia Minor*, not Asia. Nice detail you left out there.

Yeah, that makes all the difference, as Asia Minor is less than 25 miles across /s



From Greece, travelling to the eye of the Sahara, the Pillars of Hercules (the strait of Gibraltar) are on the way. From Plato's account, the eye of Sahara was immersed in water at one time, with the concentric rings that were found being the land masses.

Some of what is now the Sahara was under water like 100 million years ago, I've no idea why you think this is relevant. The Richat Structure has never been an island and in Plato's time (and for millions of years before) it was hundreds of miles in-land.



Look at that, Atlantis right where the eye of Sahara is according to one of the most reliable historians of all time.

Now I'm starting to think you're joking. One of Herodotus's nick names is the "Father of Lies" and even contemporaries referred to him as a "story teller" or "slanderer". Not that this is relevant - that modern map based in his writings shows no island of Atlantis.



There are massive concentric geological rings exactly where he said they would be by the strait of Gibraltar.

It is nowhere near the strait of Gibraltar!

He hasn't read (and possibly won't read) Herodotus. You can easily tell this because of what he said about the Atlantes.

How is that not relevant? You know they just make up that date, and for all they know it could have been 10,000 years ago. They found marine fossils in the Saharan Desert, that means it was once at least partially underwater.

" This, they said, would produce an irregular sea of bays and coves" Saharan Sea

Just like Plato's account that says there were interspersed Islands. This would also explain the unnavigable mud for the regions that were just at sea level.

It really couldn't be any more of a perfect fit.

From the Critias.

"and when afterwards sunk by an earthquake, became an impassable barrier of mud to voyagers sailing from hence to any part of the ocean"

The mud plains happened after the war was stopped. This was another piece of evidence in a massive landslide from a collapsed glacier covering up the area of northern Italy. That is besides the point.

Cooperton have you read the source material for Atlantis?

From the Gutenberg Project: Plato's Critias

That's all the information that should be looked at concerning Atlantis since this is the source of it. Anything else would be considered creative embellishments on the story given in the Critias.

As a fun little exercise y'all should research how many Deep Water Archeologists the US Navy has employed over the years. Even more fun is trying to figure out why so many of them held TS-SCIs.

There are certainly many reasonable and logical explanations for this. But the sheer number of them might be surprising.
