Was Atlantis a real place or just a fictional story? Where might it be located? Many have searched for the location of the lost city where a powerful civilization lived. But could they have been looking in the wrong place all this time? A recent report claims to have discovered the true location of Atlantis, and it’s nowhere near where you’d expect it to be!

- The idea of Atlantis was conceptualized by the Greek philosopher Plato, who wrote about it in two of his works, Timaeus and Critias.
- Atlantis was an extraordinary island in the Atlantic Ocean. As for the main city located there, its peculiarity was that it had concentric rings that alternated between water and land. The city was beautifully designed, had extravagant architecture, was home to kings and a strong military force, and was overall a marvel to behold.
- In essence, the legend of Atlantis tries to show that Athens was the most powerful state. It’s a story about a small but peaceful city (Athens) that triumphs over a powerful but corrupt one (Atlantis).
- It was a tale that was passed down from generation to generation: from Egyptian priests, to Solon, to Critias’ grandfather, to Critias himself, and finally to Socrates. If the story was real, information is bound to be lost, misinterpreted, or changed in some way.
- There are some theories that support the existence of Atlantis. According to Robert Ballard, the ocean explorer who discovered the wreckage of the Titanic, the story of Atlantis makes sense because similar things have happened to other civilizations.
- If the island was real, there are so many theories about its original location. Some have said it existed under Antarctica, on the coast of Spain, or somewhere in the Mediterranean.
- The Richat Structure, casually known as the “The Eye of the Sahara,” is a circular formation in the Earth located in Northwest Africa, in the country of Mauritania. And if you look at pictures that depict what the city of Atlantis might’ve looked like and compare them to the Richat Structure, you can’t deny the similarities!
- Now, there are differing ideas on how to interpret ancient units of measurement, but most sources put one stadium equal to anywhere from 607 to 630 feet. So, do the math and 127 of those would be about 15 miles.
- To support this claim is the fact that the Richat Structure is deeply eroded, meaning that great amounts of water must have created the formations that currently stand. Pictures of the coastal area of the region show what looks like water formations going from the coast to where the Richat Structure now stands.

I believe the flood when God flooded the whole earth,killed off civilizations and if 9000 yrs ago was a number around that time would make more sense,since time started over with Noah and his family..Nephilim were in those days and after,many worshiped them as gods and Fallen Angels had children through man that created giants, it's the main reason for the flood..many worshiped other gods,wars and the corruption of man,it was all wiped out..i do believe Atlantis and other civilations was flooded as they have found statues and cities on the ocean floor..Through plates shifting and nations separated through natural disasters for as long man was created could have been the cause..all land once was connected and Atlantis name could because it was a land that was by Africa in the Atlantic Ocean..
The reason "Atlantis" that we found was because the water was at a higher level some thousand years ago, so Atlantis was surrounded by water which was known as an island but was actually part of africa. So when the waters dropped, more of the land became exposed. Because remember Plateau said that it came some thousand years before him. So waters could have changed during that time, thus "Atlantis" still being thought as an island. But it's all in how the water rises.
For all of y'all being triggered for theory stealing just stop
Right now the most important thing is getting the theory out to everyone, so someone takes action into their hands and try searching in sahara's eye
I know actually where Atlantis is it's at the coastal line of Portugal you see a larger island and a smaller island only thing strange is the smaller island has no name and they seem to circle around it a few kilometers away you see a white smaller island don't you think those 2 islands connected together? and Atlantis is the connection between those to islands?
What if Atlantis was just one big continent that was washed down by the floods gate Noah and the ark you have to look at the fossil records whatever they trying to describe must have been beautiful in Lawrence and probably older than we think it is I think Atlantis was a large continent and the last lifetime if that makes sense
over the years i saw a lot of story of Lost City of Atlantis
and anime so my question is did Atlantis go to war and use nukes ( weapons of the sun )
if the (weapons of the sun ) story is true how old is nuclear power
and where is country Atlantis go to war to (this form city,s of gold anime)
We have more than one Atlantis. The first Atlantis was a continent (as big as Europe) between America and Europe (the name Atlantis is the name of a planet somewhere in the universe): After a development-period of 100 000 years in peace it was destroyed by atomic bombs 40 000 ago (war of the sons of ONE against the sons of Baal, who tried to occupy without success), this event caused the Iceage by the collapse of the magentic field. -- The second Atlantis later was in the south of Athen (Plato-Atlantis), lost again... -- Helgoland (island in the north of Germany) also dues to Atlantis. -- Your description is identical with the image of the 3-circle-city, surely true. Maybe it is a following colony like Helgoland, but not the original center. -- The other sunk continent was Lemuria in the pacific ocean, Hawaii is the rest in the northern east > http://ancientmistery.weebly.com/uploads/2/6/1/1/26113502/published/mapa-lemuria.jpg?1489461296
The original Atlantis is a sunk continent between America and Europe (40 000 years ago). The Atlantis of Platon was in the south of Athen (12 000 years ago). So this is the third ctiy called Atlantis. Its no contradiction. All together destroyed by an evil power.
If it is confusing (where is it now?) - it is no contradiction, the following cities, namely the Richat Structure = 3-circles-city and the sunk Platon-Atlantis in the south of Athen were built as a replacement for the lost former Atlantis.
I guess there are no sensational traces to be found, but some little objects will prove it. Important proofs (e.g. walls or houses) were removed - either by the owners of Atlantis or by the invadors. The dragon was the enemy of Atlantis.
Maybe the natural sea around Atlantis was evaporated by an atomic bomb - indicated by the red-brick color of the stones and the sand in the east of Richat.
Jimmys video for Bright Insight started all this atlantis video hype. Granted it was originally a documentary for gia. But for those who dont pay for gia, aka everyone, jimmys video got this going. His channel is EXCELLENT.... By the way.... and he did his due diligence with this theory. Honestly the best yet....
Interesting concept. Has any one ever done actual foot work to find any evidence of past civilians that lived there? Any evidence of structures? I’d like to go see this place for myself. To bad the area is so remote and hard to access. Regardless of that someone should put time and effort into doing the research.
You trying to poke fun of independant thinkers by making fun of "who they is" is a scumbag move. Trying to stop people from indepently thinking is not what we need in modern society. The they is the individuals who meet at bilderberg every year. The they is the wealthiest individuals who pay for politicians campaigns. That's the they that set up 9/11 and profit off peoples misery.
Oh! by the way, one more important information, Altantis is not a city, its a league of Citys, that one was called Posaidons City. Also they had islands in the north west of Scotland, West of Ireland, and the Azores.
Hold. Plato took his ideas from Solon, and he did from Arran. But I guess you got no idea who was Solon, or perhaps you can find him, but sure you got no idea of Arran. Atlantis was real. It was the Ionians that did the fight, Athens was a colony of the Ionians, but not the most powerful, they still needed Gadelians as Police to their colony. Wow, you really need a History lesson man! Not so Bright Side
When the video mentioned "9, 000 years before plato", it lost credibility. why? because human history from adam to abraham was 14 generations, 2, 000 years, from Abraham to Jesus was 14 generations, another 2, 000 years, that's 4, 000 years now... then from Jesus to 2018 was another 14 generations, 2, 000 and 18 years now (2018), in total from Adam to our time was only 6, 000 years, even though the earth is already billion of years old the time of the dinosaurs and ice age, "HUMAN" history is only 6K years. there was no human during the pre-historic era. so to say "9,000 years before plato"? ok aquaman.
