It's a question-and-answer website, and quite enlightening, despite the fact I had some questions with his geological 'proof':
In addition to Plato's Timaeus (24e) locating Atlantis directly "in front of" (pro), or "facing," the Pillars of Heracles, Plato's Critias (114b) describes Atlas as having a twin named Gadirus, who was allotted the portion of the island "closest to" (epi to) the Pillars. He says the ancient city of Gades (on the Atlantic shore of southern Spain, now called Cadiz) was named after that individual. The name, in itself, implies proximity. Plato's description categorically eliminates any location other than the North Atlantic Ocean reasonably close to Spain. Yet, in spite of such precise details, many moderns seek to justify other far-flung locations.
His "proof" would tend to run contrary to the findings from the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, both of which show no evidence for a sizeable landmass having catastrophically submerged at any point within human history at or near the Azores Plateau. The site is just another attempt for someone to try to rationalize Atlantis into existance IMO.
The website writer also has a rather broad interpretation of what constitutes "reasonably close to Spain" as well, considering that the Azores Plateau is about 1000 miles west of the Pillars of Hercules/Straits of Gibraltar. On top of which the earliest evidence for boats of any kind don't appear until around 6000 BC which is 3600 years after Atlantis supposedly existed. He seems to be taking great liberties with the facts.
