I periodically hear people mention “Atlantis”.
I pretty much know what most “common people” know. That is,
there was supposedly an advanced civilization living on an
island somewhere eons ago–called Atlantis, and their island sank
and all was lost. No sunken island has ever been found, and the
story is supposedly just a myth.
My standard reaction has always been, “it’s just a myth of course”,
as what most common people would say.
However, I’ve seen a number of people reference it indirectly,
so the question is:
Is there in fact more to the story than what I mentioned?
If there is “more to the story”, how credible is it *really*?
If you believe there is in fact more to the story, why
do you believe what you believe?
I’m completely out of the loop on this one, but I’m sort of
curious–while at the same reticent to investigate on my own
because I don’t really have the background in it to separate
fact from fiction.
Anyone wishing to share any insights, please do.

YOu have a fine guide with you, you should definitly do some research it is a fun topic especialy if you like finding patterns. Look at patterns in symbols and building of Pyramids. Look at Vedic legends as well as greek legends, and Egyptian legends. With the finding of troy the old legends did not seem so far fetched any more. I grow up in a house hold that was involved with the Edgar Cayces seen so it was very natural for me. Look into Edgar Cayce he was sought after for his ability to tap into what is called the Akashic record by people like Thomas Edison, Rockafellers, and other big time movers and shakers of his time. He talked about early Eygpt, Atlantis, and a group called Essenes before there was proof of there existance. From what I can tell is that it was a big culture not a city, and this culture died out pre-maturely(legend has it a majority died out in about one day) you might say leaving the rest of humanity to work out there stuff. Trying to find this culture or city in one spot I think will not lead to success, the earth has changed since that time and the remainder of the culture spread through out the world. I am sure there is archaeological proof already but, there is allot of fear of what the scientific community will think as well as fear of such a big change in history. Again I feel it is a case of the more we open the more we receive.February 16, 2008 at 11:10 pm #27527
I feel there are going to be some interesting conversations this summer.

You could find no better start than the writings of Plato himself. Easy to find on the net. I can come to no other conclusion that he is talking about a real place and people that once existed and not some Utopian/Distopian metaphor.
