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.

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.

Nah, your not unkind kmt_sesh... just a stickler for details.. SunDogDayze' post #1 gives this link to an MSNBC article that names the head of the project as Richard Freund "a professor at the University of Hartford who led an international team searching for the true site of Atlantis." You've probably heard of him .. he's been involved in the Holy Land. This Hartford University website News article (from 2004) about him might interest you ? ..... [More]

Here is another view from Wikipedia about Tartessos (Atlantis?).

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.

The prophet is false, alright, but the profit is real. Harte
