Did you ever wonder how the trireme battleships, iron and bronze weapons, and elephants in southern Spain, in Plato’s story of Atlantis, could possibly jibe with his date for the submergence of the atlantean empire by the sea circa 9600 B.C.?  Well, it doesn’t, as certainly almost everyone knowlegable in archaeology will tell you, so since there are submerged megalithic ruins in at least five locations off the coast of southern Spain, submerged by the sea level rise with end of the Ice Age, it’s obvious that we must look to a much later date for the end of the Ice Age than necessitated by tunnel-visioned mainstream scientific dogma.

In Plato’s story about Atlantis, he noted too that much of Greece also succumbed to the sea at the same time that Atlantis went under, corroborated by submerged megalithic ruins found in many locations off Greece, and Plato said that before the sea level had risen, Greece was a lush rich countryside, with huge forests, babbling brooks which long before Plato’s time had dried up (corroborated by over 300 bronze age sites which were alongside long since extinct creeks), and pastures where now is rocky stubble.  It was a different world back then, during the Ice Age, when abundant elephants roamed western Europe, outlined in Plato’s story, as the now arid southern plain of Spain, in the shadow of the mineral-rich Sierra Morena mountains, was a parkland of greenery during the time of the Atlantean empire, which ended circa 1500 B.C., actually when the Ice Age ended.

So why did the egyptian priests tell Solon (circa 600 B.C., the story then passed down to Plato) that Atlantis went under 9,000 years before?  Well for one, they said their civilization went almost, but not quite, back that far too, but Plato had to have known about the legendary flood of Ogyges’ time, circa 1500 B.C., which we know because anarchy ruled thereafter in Greece for 189 years until king Cecrops gained control, circa 1300 B.C., of this Plato should have been aware, and so, should have known that the Egyptians’ timeframe for the flooding of Atlantis (and much of Greece) was impossibly ancient at 9,600 B.C., confirmed by the submerged bronze age ruins and what he surely must have known about the legendary Flood of Ogygos.  To learn how many of these ancients were able to measure and thereby map the earth with tremendous precision, by the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, refer to category Ancient Navigation.
