Rand Flem-ath, to my knowledge, is a leading writer in this particular theory.
He explains the disappearance of Atlantis using the theory of Earth Crust Displacement. That at the end of the last ice age (about 12000yrs ago) the whole earth crust slid down therefore changing Antartica's postion from out of the artic circle (wait...is the artic circle the northern polar area? Or are they both "artic circles") to within. This theory was first propsed by Charles H. Hapgood.
A little info on it - Earth Crust Displacement
There are a number of old maps that alledgedly show antartica without ice. These maps were made before 1820 when antartica was officially discovered by modern day explorers. For example the Oronteus Finaeus Map and the Piri Reis map.
While reading up on this stuff just now, I found it said that the Atlantic ocean has been mapped with sonar and nothing resembling a continent or island was found. What now then?
