That's a mighty fine way of putting Poles in the holes, even if in bold .....

The hollow Earth used to be a true concept but it all got filled in by debris taken away during the construction of the Panama Canal.

Kmt,

I told that I even dont know how to read Egyptian Hieroglyphs at all. I just conclude things on some people who can read them. Maybe they say that not realizing how much effort they put in that task in the first place.
Every work on world is trivial in some sense. Even operation of brain is easy to well trained doctor. But to me is science fiction.
Im sure you put much effort in learning it. Just maybe one day you will say as Champollion "You get better results if you dont think about it too much."

Alas, except the holes in your view of the world, there are no holes to be found in the poles. Besides, Atlantis and the hollow earth bovine manure are two  unrelated things. Was is an ancient text written by Plato, the other is excrement.
That is not true Searcher... Most maps of the Hollow world will show Atlantis marked on it. Lots of fringies are still trying for the Unified Theory of everything weird, and putting Atlantis and Hollow world is a natural.

Our Flat, Hollow, Atlantean mind controlled, geyser powered, alien conspiracy world would not be in the shape it's in if the those meddling Illuminati had just left things alone and hadn't sent back their agent to the past with the 386 computer.

Atlantis, as written and described by Plato, was not real.

I Dont think this thread would get 141 Pages of debate if it wasn't real, or worth discussing.

Well you know my take on it the only thing that relates to the Atlantis tale is the kings of Athens of the 1500 hundreds bc. :yes:

That's not much of an argument. Case in point, the Oera Linda thread is 1000 or so pages long as STILL no one has shown it's original premise is an historical fact. The length of a thread has no bearing on its validity.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Except that this thread has been around longer. And is in fact one of my most popular threads that i have started on the internet, and is still alive. I started this thread in like 2008.

It doesn't matter if it's been around longer it still doesn't make Atlantis real which is what you appeared to be implying in Post #2108. Discussing the validity or lack thereof of a subject, even over the long term, does not make it true.

Even if it is real or not, i have been watching America Unearthed on the History Channel every Friday night and that show has rekindled my interest in Atlantis type Civilizations. And it just bugs me that there are so many unsolved anomalies right here in America.

Allow me to rephrase this then.....for people living in the real world.....etc etc.
You get the drift though. At the beginning the two things were unrelated. If I recall correctly, Plato didn't mention the hollow earth.....

Out of curiosity, what mysteries are those? I have never watched America Unearthed, so I have no idea what you mean.
