Mainstream academics seemingly will forever mock the notion of Atlantis, as they always will fall back on their argument that “bronze age navies, metallurgy, weaponry, and megalithic stonemasonry, could not have been ongoing circa 9600 B.C.,” never logically bringing themselves to admit the evidence is overwhelming that coastal megalithic cities of the bronze age did in fact succumb to the sea circa 1500 B.C. (see category Submerged Ancient Ruins), and so, never entertaining the notion that 9,000 “solar cycles” before greek historian and poet Solon’s time for the end of Atlantis should really have been transmitted 9,000 lunar cycles before his time, which would then make sense of the bronze age cultures described in Plato’s Atlantis account, describing the bronze age warfare between Atlantis and the Athenians.
Plato said that Atlantis extended both inside and outside the Pillars of Hercules, which is the Straits of Gibraltar (meaning fire altar), explaining the submerged bronze age megalithic ruins now found on the shallow seafloor in many locations in the Gibraltar region (see category Atlantis Revealed), but rather than investigating those, to try to make sense of Plato’s story, the orthodox academics ignore the many submerged ruins, so they don’t have to face the fact that Atlantis went under circa 1500 B.C., the timeframe of the Flood of Ogyges in Greece, when the Ice Age ended, when sea level rose a few hundred feet, and the climate dried out across the middle latitudes, turning many of the ancient civilizations to dust, as confirmed by Yale’s pioneering Harvey Weiss.
And confirmed by the Ipuwer Papyrus from Egypt, which describes anarchy and drought in Egypt, not coincidentally, in the timeframe of the disasters which befell Egypt, circa 1500 B.C., at the time of the Exodus of the Jews out of Egypt to the land of Canaan, the ancestral homeland many of the Atlanteans, whose father was Atlas, a son of Poseidon, the Sidon of the Bible, a son of Canaan; it was a surprisingly small world back then, enabled by the surprisingly simple ancient methodology by which they measured the earth by the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, at 72 years/degree, as explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
This methodology also is being ignored by mainstream academics, because it explains the global navigational savvy of those intrepid mariners and miners, sometimes known as the cyclops (which means round eyes, perhaps miners’ goggles?), who built the “cyclopean” megalithic structures, ruins of which are now found both onshore and some submerged offshore, since the end of the Ice Age, which obviously was not back circa 9600 B.C., when merely “hunter/gatherers” inhabited the world, according mainstream science’s timeline.
The word thousand in ancient egyptian sounds like, and looks like, the word for hundred, so the obvious timeline snafu in Plato’s story, told to Solon, and then to others who subsequently told Plato, could be explained by this too, but either way, the evidence is overwhelming that the biblical timeline is true (no surprise there), which creates big problems for the mainstreamers’ rendition of ancient history, according to the darwinian timeline and uniformitarian geology.
