Atlantis Explained!

It's very simple. Atlantis had Plainwith specific measurements. Florida has a Plain with the same measurements. You are smart enough to make to confirm the measurements. However, you choose to look the other way.

So you pick and choose what parts of his island you want to believe and purposely ignore the rest, like location? Basically you’re just paying lip-service to his tale. Disingenuous to say the least.

According to Plato, The continent of Atlantis was North America. Make that comparison. Numbers don't lie.

Nope, you’ve reinterpreted what he said to be what you want it to be. You’re dishonest.

But you do!

From Critias: 

Quote

The whole country was said by him to be very lofty and precipitous on the side

of the sea, but the country immediately about and surrounding the city was a

level plain, itself surrounded by mountains which descended towards the sea;

it was smooth and even, and of an oblong shape, extending in one direction

three thousand stadia, but across the centre inland it was two thousand stadia.

And a bathymetric photo overlaying what would look like a 3000 X 2000 stadia plain in Florida would appear as follows: 

683287852_BathymetryontopofPlatos3000X2000stadiasizeofthePlainofAtlantis.thumb.jpg.6b29afc3cdf3e9d6b4a0b4c73f88f103.jpg

There's no plain there and the red rectangle is the 3000 X 2000 stadia size of Plato's Plain. From the mainland of what is now Florida to the western most side of the plain is a drop of 800+ feet. Next bit of fiction from you?

And the above DOESN'T include the 10,000 stadia DITCH Plato says surrounds the plain.

Florida is still above sealevel.

Atlantis sank beneath the waves.

Florida NEVER went down below sealevel as far as we have to trust scientists.

Scientists don't know nuffin'.  You can't believe anything they say.  And trust me on that: I'm a scientist. 

You ever been swimming?  Gone right under the water?  But you're not still there, are you?

MAYBE Florida was above sea level, then sank a bit, just enough to freak everyone out, and then rose again?  There's lots of ways that could happen: earthquakes, tsunamis, global warming, isostacy, dykes'n'polders - take yer pick.  And the reason there's no evidence for this?  Well, modern Floridians are very neat and tidy, and cleaned the place so well that you can't tell any more what happened.

In fact - while cleaning up they also terraformed the entire landscape, changing the shapes and sizes of islands, filling in hundreds of canals or digging new ones (whichever fits the narrative better), moving the occasional lake or mountain range, etc.  That's why it doesn't exactly match Plato's description today.  But we know, cos @Rojackread about it* online so it must be true.

Right.

And these are the Gates of Atlantis:

Well: the Ancient Greeks had flat bread and sausages ...  But no-one (least of all Plato) says anything about Big Macs.

No, and that's, like Plato said, because all the names in his account are translations into Greek from the Egyptian, which are in their turn translations from the original Atlantian language. Or something.

Now something else.

You know that McDonald means son of Donald, right? Mc = mac = son.

Ok. Atlantis means of Atlas or even daughter of Atlas.

There's a connection here. Wait for it... an anagram for Donald is Adlond. Adlond is so close to Atlantis, it can't be a coincidence.

There. Proof.

Florida is a plain. You have to look it up. It also has a special soil. Also, the ditch Plato wrote about is now the Indian river. Follow it around the coastline to Tampa and see what you get.

I don’t have to look it up, I understand bathymetric and topographical maps. DO YOU?

Man, just give up.

You contorted and mangled Plato's story just to fit your favorite phantasy.

Many have been before you: they 'explained' away those things Plato mentioned because these things didn't support their phantasies about Atlantis, like where it was located (most often close to where they themselves lived), how large it was, and so on.

Try again, the Indian River is a 121 mile brackish lagoon and NOT a nearly 1,150 mile long ditch as Plato describes surrounding his Atlantis.

So where's the geological data I asked for? Or did you look the other way.

Plato said that beautiful mountains surrounded and protected the Plain. Where are the mountains located? Which mountains protect the Florida Plain? Here is the answer: The Appalachian Mountains.

Plato said Atlantis WAS SURROUNDED by mountains. In no way do the Appalachians surround Florida. Try again. Since weather predominately comes from the west with hurricanes predominately coming from the east the Appalachians aren’t protecting Florida from much of anything.

The Appalachians don't reach Florida. Now where's the soils map showing the flood deposits?

Don’t know about that, Cormac. Some of those Arctic winds can really bite
