The greek historian Solon learned from the egyptian priests, circa 600 B.C., that Athens was founded by Athena (Naamah of the Bible, who was Ham’s/Chiron’s wife), supposedly 9,000 years before their time, circa 9600 B.C., and according to them, old kingdom Egypt began 1,000 years after that (which would have been around 8600 B.C.), as reported to Plato by Timaeus and Critias, but the priests also said that Atlantis went under circa 9600 B.C., having fougt and extended naval war against Athens, both thalassocracies which supposedly were in their infancy at that time, so how could have the ancient Egyptians, who supposedly weren’t existent at all circa 9600 B.C., have known this suppsosed timeline and events of history? You can see that the egyptian priests didn’t have their story straight, and because the forces of Atlantis and Athens used forged weapons, huge trireme ships, and built megalithic cities, the timeframe described by the egyptian priests must be skewed for some reason.
There are submerged megalithic ruins off southern Spain at Cadiz, Zahara de los Atunes beach, Tarifa, Chipiona, and Huelva, submerged when the Ice Age ended, so when you consider that the priests may well have deliberately, or mistakenly, said 9,000 years (solar cycles) before their time, rather than 9,000 lunar cycles, just to confuse the Greeks, or trying to aggrandize themselves by saying the Greeks had true history improperly recalled in their legends, the bronze age megalithic ruins now submerged off Spain (as well as off Greece) can be logically rationalized as indeed bronze age, and so, they were submerged 9,000 lunar cycles before Solon’s time, circa 1500 B.C.
Plato described mountains, lakes, and rivers on the nesos, the “island” of Atlantis, so the meaning of island in the context makes no sense, but if you consider that the Iberian peninsula (Spain), with its rich ore deposits and ancient mining works along the Rio Tinto river in the Sierra Morena mountains of southern Spain, and the plain south of it, perfectly fit the geography of Plato’s Atlantis, you can see that the City of Posidon (Atlantis), which was surrounded by concentric canals for ships, is submerged on the continental shelf off southern Spain; a confusion of the meaning of term island in the context, not surprising considering the inconsistencies of dating the beginnings of Athens, Atlantis, and Egypt, by the egyptian priests.
