When we think of South America, we think of either Machu Picchu or the Maya, a mysterious civilisation capable of impressive feats of engineering and creators of complex interrelated calendar systems that ranged from days in length to millions of years in duration.

Most scholars would agree that South America has a rich archaeological history that we are only just beginning to discover.

Well thats a new slant on Atlantis. Yes it does fit in most parts, but there again its perhaps another theory which has been made to fit?

It is a very interesting theory indeed but sadly but it will probably just remain a theory!

I think the Andes are a little too far from the Pillars of Hercules to be a likely candidate for Atlantis. But you know, that's just me.

Nothing to see here.

One common misconception concerning Atlantis is that it is a story of a story of a story of a story and so on... Plato relates the Atlantis story as it was told to him and, arguably, as it was told to the person who then passed it on to Plato, with the possibility of a lineage of who knows how many storytellers before we get to the original source. This aspect is the "stuff" that makes everything which emerged from The Oral Tradition so wonderfully fascinating.

There are decidedly too many validated connections between the "Old World" and the "New World" which predate Columbus or the Vikings by millenia for any definitive, declarative assertion that they were ever mutually exclusive before being "discovered" or explored by those with light(er) skin and surnames.

dnb420:

Are you referring to Plato or Jim Allen and others who have claimed to have "found" Atlantis? I think that you're referring to the latter but I'd rather not assume.

I ask because it is entirely possible that the legend of Atlantis has some truth to it, in that, "ancient" indigenous peoples of the "New" and "Old" worlds had ongoing contact well before our version of history indicates. In other words, what is known as Atlantis may very well be a misconstrued story of a "New World" civilization.

It has now been proven that there was a Phonecian port at the Bimini Islands and the Olmecs who first appeared out of nowhere about 1,200 BC were probably from Africa. So it is plausible.

how about the knowledge of Edgar Cayce known as one of America's greatest psychics.

here are some websites i found about Edgar Cayce knowledge about Atlantis.

- http://www.dreamscape.com/morgana/juliet.htm
. . . . .The position as the continent Atlantis occupied, is that as between the Gulf of Mexico on the one hand -- and the Mediterranean upon the other. Evidences of this lost civilization are to be found in the Pyrenees and Morocco on the one hand, British Honduras, Yucatan and America upon the other. There are some protruding portions within this that must have at one time or another been a portion of this great continent. The British West Indies or the Bahamas, and a portion of same that may be seen in the present -- if the geological survey would be made in some of these -- especially, or notably, in Bimini and in the Gulf Stream through this vicinity, these may be even yet determined. . . . . .

. . . . . 7. (Q) Was Atlantis one of the five points at which man appeared in the beginning, being the home of the red race? P> (A) One of the five points. As has been given, in what is known as Gobi, India, in Carpathia [?], or in that known as the Andes, and that known as in the western plain of what is now called America - the five places. . . . . .

- http://www.geocities.com/ecayce.geo/atlantis.htm
       . . . . . The Bible gives an account of this second change, terming it the flood. Before the final destruction which began about 10,700 B.C. the principal islands remaining were Poseidia, Aryaz and Og. The West Indies are remains of this great continent . . . . .

I seem to recall seeing a show on Atlantis.  They had a map that was supposedly of Atlantis, and you turn it upside down, it becomes South America.

while it is true no one truly wishes to see aquaman...(IMO the worst of the justice league...) finding atlantis would be the most significant find in archeological history (again, similar to my aquaman opinion, just IMO)

I have to agree, the whole map upside down notion portrayed in the documentary...is quite unbelievable. Unless it's suggested the map was drawn out of ancestral mappings of early ventures to the americas. course, without actually seeing the show, all I can do is speculate.

wow...came a pretty long way to say nothing there huh...

Atlantis being in the Andes is no new revelation. During WWII the Nazi's were quite facinated with the story of Atlantis as they belived that the arian race were direct decendants from the Atlanteans. For this reason they sent expeditions to south america, as the native poplulation is belived to be direct decendants from Atlantis.

As much as this story seems sorta out of wack, it is very likely the closest thing to atlantis that there ever was.
