Jaylemurph,

Several ditto-heads, by liking your post, revealed their misunderstanding of literature.

Plato's Atlantis theme can be summarized as  -  Atlas and his brothers (see Crit 114a,b,c) oppose (see Crit 121c) the pantheon of Olympian deities.

This was a variation on a well known Greek theme.  The variation format is sometimes called Euhemerism, although in this instance it could be called Platonism.  

One poster, by virtue of ranting at clouds, revealed their misunderstanding of allegory. 
 

Plato’s Atlantis theme can be summarised as - don’t get bigger than your boot Athenians or else there’ll be a smiting.

Very well stated, sir. I myself like to scream at doors when there are no boots around.
