The legendary ancient homeland of the Mexicans was across the eastern ocean, known as the Atlantic, their ancient homeland having been Atlan, known to the ancient frisian Dutch as Atland, now submerged off western Europe, and described by Plato in the region of the the Straits of Hercules (Gibraltar), where many submerged ruins have been discovered off southern Spain, ruins just to the west of Cadiz for instance, discovered by Rainer Kuhne, who rightly opines that this was part of the empire of Atlantis, which Plato said extended inside the Straits of Gibraltar, as far as Italy and Libya, and outside the Straits, along the Atlantic coastlines, many off the coast of Spain and Morocco, near the Atlas Mountains.
In her classic book from almost a hundred years ago, called Atlantis in Spain, Elena Maria Whishaw rightly equates the ancient megalithic ruins in southern Spain with the work of the Atlanteans, with Tharsin (Tarshish, a son of Japheth), now Seville, having been a large bronze age city, where was the temple of Hercules (Atlas), three of its six forty foot columns still standing in Seville, a hundred years ago, as reported by Whishaw; it was riverport city on the now named Guadalquiver River which flows out of the Siera Morena mountains emptying into the Atlantic just west of Cadiz, where Kuhne discovered the submerged ruins. The ancient Rio Tinto Mines were upriver from Tharsin, so that city was no doubt a huge trading hub, minerals out, and exotic goods in, by seafarers who were able to measure and map the earth by the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, as explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
Plato said the ocean rose to submerge Atlantis and vast tracts of Greece, 9,000 years before his time, but he also said that the Atlanteans and Greeks battled each other in trireme warships, with bronze and iron weapons, mining gold and silver, and sailing all over the globe, which obviously violates good archaeology, so the Ice Age end, with its sea level rise obviously more in the 1500 B. C. timeframe (9000 lunar cycles before Plato’s time), which is confirmed by the invasion of the eastern Mediterranean by “the Sea Peoples,” from Atlantis, who migrated in ships and overland to invade Egypt, and who sailed to Turkey (Hittites) and Lebanon (Canaanites) to fight for a place to settle. Many scientists are realizing that there was a catastrophic climate change circa 1500 B. C., and that in fact was the end of the Ice Age. Read on under category Catastrophic Climate Change to see the compelling evidence for this scenario, which just happens to jibe with the biblical account of ancient history, too http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
