Apparently some US scientists have found ruins of a city in the mud flats of Spain that they believe are what's left of Atlantis after a tsunami wiped it out.

Interesting!

Wow...that's really cool. Who knows what they'll find, sounds like the opportunity of a lifetime for archaeologists if it's actually the real deal.

Don't they name any new found buried/sunken city/ruins Atlantis?

There are things known, and things unknown and in between are the Doors!

The ruins in the swamps by Cadiz, Spain have been a popular guess for Atlantis since the 1920s.

Before that, Historian Adolf Schulten had stated in the 1920's that Plato had used Tartessos as the basis for his Atlantis myth.

Well that's like the 12th time in the last years that someone thinks that he found the Atlantis.

Last night on Nat Geo were showing that very thing, sadly its to expensive to dig as there's water layers between the rocks. From all the shows and stuff I've seen, this was the best maybe evidence of something that might be Atlantis.

Looking at that computer graphic, doesn't seem to fit what Ive heard and seen on some documentarys.  I was always under the impression that Atlantis was an Island...I could be wrong tho, was what I thought tho :/

There is no description of what Atlantis was, only interpretations. And it seems that nobody notices the fact that Plato was talking much more about political models than about geographic locations.

I second that!!

I have seriously come to believe history is NOT as we have been told, as tho the real situation on just about everything is most certainly not what we are supposed to believe. College should never have forced me to read Herodotus. Reading him opened my eyes and made me assess all motivations behind reporting.

Yes.  History is a construct designed to support the current status quo.  

The first thing zealots and despots do when they take over is rewrite history.

The article provides no evidence so is simply supposition at this point.
