Don't get TOO excited, Plato's pretty dry.
Eh? Eh? Geddit? But seriously.
(Won't it be fun if the conspiracy algorithms pick this one up?)
No, the ending song isn't "under the sea", I already did it twice.

Atlantis from Stargate Atlantis still winds up being about war. Specifically, it seems to *really* heavily imply that the Ancients were pretty decadent, and, in spite of their "LOLZ, Git Gud, NEWBS!" level of technology, were UTTERLY shit at doing the war thing.
Actually, they were pretty shit at dealing with ANY serious conflict. Ran the fuck away from the Ori. Ran the fuck away from a plague in the Milky Way. Ran the fuck away from the Wraith in the Pegasus galaxy. Finally, they cap their illustrious career of running away with their last, best party trick, and run the fuck away from this dimension by Ascending, and then solemnly swearing to do jack-all with their relatively godlike powers.

Weren't ancient ship designs and naval techniques incapable of navigating the open Atlantic? Could that be what Plato meant? Some explanation for why sailing into the open ocean was so difficult? If the rest of the myth is an allegory, it feels like we shouldn't take the muddy shoal part so literally either.

The ruins of Atlantis still exists. Check out "Eye of Sahara". It used to be a water city but then Nile shifted and Atlantis dried up. Fun bit: Plato's description of Atlantis fits the ruins of Eye of Sahara perfectly.

They actually found real Orichalcum, the problem is that there's only like 20 ingots and they're still trying to decide if it's worth melting one down to see what it's made of.

Gobekli Tepe was exactly at the time Plato's Atlantis existed.... 9000+ years ago. That's inland but that's definitely a civilisation. Also, you seem to be forgetting that just bc Greece is ancient history to us, that at the time of Plato that obviously had ancient history too. And for a fact there were civilisations that were established by then, so they were hardly "banging rocks" and it's insulting to say that prior to an agricultural revolution we had no culture. I'm not saying i believe in Atlantis per se, but it's not an insane idea. It is just a story, imo. But they weren't all idiots 10 or 20 or 100 thousand years ago.

What if Hawaii was Atlantis just smaller, or it once was big, but because of the volcanos it broke apart and sunk?
I like this thought.

Hopefully more sea will come and sink England but keep Ireland, Wales & Scotland, well maybe small parts of Ireland like the North.

Today's Atlantis is the USA. An extremely wealthy Empire nation, very corrupt leaders, very violent people & a very imperialist military that goes around the world bullying other countries, 9/11 was like a warning strike from the God's for their society to be less evil, the next strike will probably be like a nuclear strike to destroy it's evil people.

About your comment that there was a mud barrier so that the Mediterranean couldn't flow out into the Atlantic Ocean. At one time Bible scholars thought it was the flood that left the whole area from north of the Black Sea and down to Central Africa. There was a mud wall that separated the area from the Atlantic. As the waters receded the area became the Mediterranean Sea . Archaeologists have found hundreds if not thousands of towns under water. These towns would have been pre-flood occupations. Eventually the mud wall did collapse and made the Strait of Gibraltar. In West Africa there is an anomaly called the eye of Africa. It is a candidate in being Atlantis. This shows there was once water in the area. the Sahara was green many times so there had to be a water source in what was is now desert. Anyway your comment about a mud wall was right but you thought it was wrong. Do the research. It is fascinating.

You're conflating several very different events together. While there was a rapid flooding of the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea, the latter was over 7,000 years ago (and the was water in it already, the sea level just rose) while the former as 5.3 million years ago, before even the earliest human ancestors existed. And the green Sahara was because of an increase in rainfall for a few thousand years, not because in was covered in salt water or something.

So THAT'S why Age of Mythology puts Atlantis out past Spain!
But then the Titans expansion put in "That other Atlantis"...
Kastor is the worst in that story.

I think it might be Going Under by Evanescence. That's what I got when I put the lyrics into Google, which you can do to find the name of a song.

Do you relish in the death of enthusiasm and joy or something? Just cuz Plato is an unreliable narrator doesn't mean that Atlantis never existed. If all factors aren't known then any reality is equally plausible. You should give optimism a shot
Julian Wilson

@Merritt Animation if all factors are not known then any plausible situation can be equally likely. Humanity is ancient and much of our history of shrouded in mystery due to loss of records. Maybe there was an Atlantis way before Plato's time and his 20th hand information was corrupted. It makes no sense to definitively write off Atlantis. We used to think jungles were dumb empty places until we discovered pyramids in them.

If the only guy that mentions has a habit of using allegories and fables to explain his ideas (The Ring of Gyges and the Allegory of the Cave for example) along with absence of any concrete evidence physical or otherwise outside of it it's safe to say it was at best an exaggeration of any number of past events. If we're just using optimism we would say that love exists because humans used to be double bodied androgynous monsters before the gods split us all in half just because Plato briefly mentioned it.

Atlantis is the go-to for hubris metaphors, and Lemuria is the go-to for jackanapes who want to one-up people who use Atlantis.

Just because you haven't found evidence of the records Solon translated from doesn't mean they didn't exist. I don't know if Atlantis ever existed but this is not evidence against it. This is nitpicking for the purpose of damaging the materials credibility.

*_"I think EVERYONE loves Atlantis!"_* Not me, sister... Terribly annoying to find, overrated considering the lack of room service (not even a FOUR STARS rating, for Christ's sake) and its dampness would make my hair all frizzy.
Plus, I don't wanna end up like *ECCO the dolphin!*
