You may be right too Moon. It may reshape the ancient boundaries if the sunken city is Atlantis(or what Plato called Atlantis).

Domt know why I bring this up but the Roman armies did actaully manage to travel as far as Scotland and they were driven back by the clans.Other earlier civilations got around a bit too,the Vikings for one were well traveled.There is a strong debate that
carvings on rocks along the eastern sea board were made by Vikings,including Dighton rock in Dighton,Ma.

Yeah Hawk,you know roman hands and russian fingers,lol.Anyway,the point was just that
early societies did get around.This does'nt speak for against the topic at hand but just something I thought to mention.

I dont think the location of Atlantis is
particularly important to the discussion of if it exsisted it or not,except when qualifying or disqualifying a particular
target as being that city.The location could be a misinterpertation,it could be exactly where it is specified and burried
under tons of muck.

Atlantis exsisting is speculation with some
good basis to think it could have been a real place.The technology aspect is highly
questionable,but until someone discovers
something more than a littary refernce and folk tales,it remains just speculation.

I just found this article on CNN.com.

http://www.cnn.com/2...reut/index.html

"DUBLIN, Ireland (Reuters) -- Atlantis, the legendary island-nation whose existence has been debated for thousands of years, was actually Ireland, according to a new theory by a Swedish scientist."

What think you?  I've read in many a questionable 'Celtic Magick' book that the Ancient Celts came from Atlantis (which always makes me roll my eyes), but this is the first time I've heard of anyone claiming that sunken Atlantis is actually Ireland!

pfft, there is probably no Atlantis at all! I mean some day they'll claim North America is indeed Atlantis..if they have not already.

They have actually.  Also have claimed that the Templars discovered North America as well.

The closest I have ever heard to 'solving' the mystery of Atlantis is this.

1)  Plato made up the inhabitants and culture of Atlantis to illustrate a point in the unfinished trillogy that the story as we know it comes from.  He did this often.

2)  He based the tale on a story he heard or read in Egypt.  However, he made an error in the dates.  This is significant....

3)  The tale was regarding the volcanic eruption that all but destroyed the Minoian culture in the Mediteranian Sea.  Archeological evidence exists regarding this destruction.  And the Minoians were, prior to that, a very powerful and infulential Ancient nation.  And yes, there is more than one Pilars of Hercules.  :)

I've got this somewhere, I'll dig it up and give ya the info.  Above is based on my memory, so I might not have the full or exact details right.  But that's the most plausible theory out there.

:)  It's been predicted to rise several times.  One of the more famous predictions was Edgar Cayce (sp?  not sure), who said it would rise in the 1960's.  Obviously, that didn't happen.

Sorry, but I'm sticking with the theory I posted above.

That would be the 'stone road' off the coast of Florida?  Three schools of thought on that.  1)  Natural formation of the rock bed, 2) remains of a settlement of either Native American or Europeans that evenutally was submerged and 3) Atlantis.
