its just a pot.

what can i say in support of atlantis that we could discuss? i can say that the national geological institute of a european union country has gone before the international geological community and said they have found atlantis. where do we go now?

And when are you going to present this evidence for us ?

Atleast tell us what European Union country you are speaking of ?

If not why should we take you seriously ?

I'm more of an expert on non-critical thinking (as a byproduct of my knowledge and application of critical thinking) than history itself.

Any knowledge I have and relate here is due to my own investigations into the possibility of the existence of Atlantis, which, at one point decades ago, I thought might have some historical validity.

I learned long ago that my considerations of historical Atlantis were simply incorrect.

the country is romania. the person to contact is mircea ticleanu. he is in the directory there [ie at the national geological institute of romania in bucharest]. he is a nice man. can you speak french? it is french or romanian. well actually you might try some other languages. i only tried french. but definitely not english. english is not good.

I found this, when looking for Mircea Ticleanu:

http://www.scribd.co...Atlantis-Island

It doesn't seem very convincing to me !

But what a stroke of luck that Atlantis just happens to be in Romania, where the author is from :whistle:

I don't mind when contradicting or not, only a fool never changes his mind hé.

Glad to look further. Don't mind.

You mean from the construction of the canals and temples of Atlantis until its destruction?

Given that it is fictional, I don't see the point. However, the only ancient source on the matter doesn't actually say anything about the time frame except that the encircling canals were made by Poseidon himself and that the place sank around 9500 BC.

well we are not experts now are we. i just wanted to know how long you thought it could conceivably take for everything to happen. purely interested in your opinion only. by the way add reemerging in there. its in the story. not very friendly are you.

Atlantis was big I was told by Plato.

Maybe the good man lived in an outer part :-)

if a stade is a thousand natural strides then it was big and there should be things at very well defined distances from a well defined point. if it is not real it should be very easy to disprove since the romanians version is on land.

by the way, the international workshop i posted the poster of earlier is calling the same piece of ground the romanians call atlantis the "garden of eden" and that means THE garden of eden in the organizers mind.
