Scientists believe that have finally discovered the whereabouts of the fabled lost city of Atlantis.

Satellite imagery was used to survey a submerged city north of Cadiz in Spain where the multi-ringed Atlantis has allegedly been uncovered in the marshlands of Dona Ana Park. It is thought that Atlantis was wiped out by a massive tsunami thousands of years ago.

"A US led research team may have finally located the lost city of Atlantis, the legendary metropolis believed swamped by a tsunami thousands of years ago, in mud flats in southern Spain."

I keep meaning to comment on this but have only recently joined this particular discussion. Its title is "Scientists think they have found Atlantis". Really? Scientists think this? I mean, what scientists are these? Or is someone once again confusing whimsical fringe writers with the legitimate scientific world? Oh, goodness, I could've gone all day without saying that. How unkind of me. But I couldn't resist. It's been nagging at me. I feel better now.

Its true they name every sunken (antediluvian complex) 'Atlantis' There are numerous submerged cities around the world. The more they follow Plato's directions, the sooner they may find more and more clues to its ACTUALLY location.

The more they follow Plato's directions, the sooner they may find more and more clues to its ACTUALLY location. If they follow Plato's directions about Atlantis to the letter, they will NEVER find its location. And we are here not just talking about 'submerged cities', but about an entire continent the size of ancient Libya/Asia.

People read Plato's story about Atlantis. Many of them love to twist what's known and accepted about ancient history because they are bored with this accepted view. They need tension, stress, a high blood pressure, something to worry about (aside from what the next episode of their favorite sitcom will bring). They love to read about truelly amazing ancient civilizations because they once watched a SciFi/fantasy movie about it. And when they watch that movie, they think, "Hmmm, there must be some truth in it, it can't be all a lie?"....... NO, there isn't anything 'in it', it was just created ... [More]

A very late reply but anyways. I completely agree, people will read anything and start professing it as something "cool", I have many of these ludicrous people as my friends (unfortunate, sigh!) who think of Daniken as God and his Chariot of the Gods as the Bible. Oh, your poor friends, worshiping a false prophet. Not just a false profit but a particularly dishonest and dim-witted false prophet.
