If there's an island in the Atlantic eventually someone will say it's Atlantis. The truth is we'll probably never know for sure where it was or if it even really existed..

Archeology makes discoveries every day. Two weeks ago while digging for a new highway south of the Balkan mountains, a crew of Bulgarian road workers found the ruins of a village dating from 10 000 years ago.  Nobody expected to find a village that old there and the oldest settlements  in that region are about 5000 years old. So it is quite possible that if they dig in the right places in Ireland they may find quite interesting things...

I still think Atlantis exists and was submerged. If anyone can find a copy of the book titled "Oera Linda Book" (which is my screen name for AIM  cool.gif ) by an author with the last name Linda; buy it! I belive this manuscript shows the location and specifics on Atlantis (or 'Atland' as the book calls it).

But they probably won't....England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are inhabited by "millions" of amatuer archaeologists, who dig the country up constantly.  If there was something there (Ireland is smaller than a lot of our states), it would have been found by now! laugh.gif

Not entirely accurate. The older the civ, the deeper burried (and the more scattered the findings), so a really ancient civ could be in a depth just not accesible to "amateurs"

That isn’t true either, I have been on digs that dated back 10000 to 15000 years that were only centimeters beneath the surface and been on digs that dated back only 1000 years that were meters below the surface.  I’ve seen sites where the findings were scattered and where they were “clumped” together.  Your statement shows that you have no true knowledge of archaeology or archaeological protocol.  Incidentally the passage tombs that were mentioned are quite common in England, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, etc and date back to around 9000 BCE…..A little late for Atlantis, don’t you think? whistling2.gif

[FONT=Courier]The problem with the 'Ireland as Atlantis' theory is that according to the legend the Greek city-state of Athens was at war with Atlantis.

How about if we all just say that Ireland was Atlantis then everybody can quit wasting their time looking for it.

ulf erlingsson? sounds norwegian or swedish(mabey danish to). Well back to the subject, if this is an old theory/claim then why would it be at breaking news? arent they paying attention? it seems like much of the info they got about atlantis points toward ireland, and they say atlantis sunk but, what if it resurfaced again? i know, sounds insane.

Wasting our time??

If atlantis did exist, they were said to have an intellect, and be as advanced scientifically as we are today. It is said that atlantis was supposed to have flying machines also. I mean if we were to discover a civilization that is equal to ours today, would be quite impressive.. Maybe the most important archeology discovery ever?

The Atlantians were said to have a library somewhat similar to what the Mayan's had, which was destroyed by the spanish. But if we discover a library that is intact, with information that was lost with a catastrophic disaster such as flood/earthquake, nobody would have time to Rob/Loot the most important artifacts.. The artifacts of knowledge..

Personally I think even when we find heiroglyphs on pyramids, that knowledge we read, is knowledge that was lost in time. And there is nothing more important then gaining knowledge.  And an ancient book on physics/mathmatics I feel would be absolutely priceless.  I think if we discover atlantis, we will uncover so many secrets that have been waiting to be answered for millenia..

well the ancient folklore tells of a race of people almost magical. they either had long golden blonde hair or jet black. they were tall and slender and some even dwelt in the water because they had webbed feet and hands and hidden gills. they came from greece and were the offspring of the goddess Danu. they settled in ireland way before the historical first settlers. the legend says that when they first came here it was smaller and full of magic and they used the magic to create more land and mountains. then when the humans came they slowly began to vanish...maybe not atlantis, but maybe a place they once lived..???? grin2.gif

yes wasting our time.
Where in any ancient literature does it mention Atlantis having a technology equal with ours? I've read Plato he's not talking about cars, computers or anything like that when he mentions Atlantis.
However for the Ireland as Atlantis, maybe. The only reason I even say maybe is because it was the Celts who brought in the bronze age and the iron age. So they would have appeared fairly advanced to the other cultures in the world at that time. So maybe Ireland is it. Then again maybe not.

Hell it might be in Ireland or im sorry it might be Ireland... Usually all i read about is hey Atlantis is Chilie, or Atlantis is in Antartica, or Atlantis is here or there.. but as Schadeux posted he actually had evidence to back it up... thanx for that!
