Most people aren’t aware that Plato’s story about Atlantis includes a description of the climate of Greece when Atlantis was the dominant power in the eastern Atlantic and western Mediterranean, saying that a great many more streams flowed there (confirmed by over 300 bronze age sites along now-dry streambeds of Greece), thus indicating much more rainfall, which watered the dense forests and rich pastures described by Plato, the streams and lush vegetation which by his time had disappeared, yet the ruins of some of the ancient buildings remained for him to comment on how huge the trees were in Greece back in the days of the warfare between the Athenians and the Atlanteans, fought in trireme ships, with bronze and iron weapons, not what you’d expect, archaeologicially, at 9600 B.C., the date which Plato espoused (having heard the story through third and fourth parties from egyptian priests in the Nile delta at Sais who had told Solon the story circa 600 B.C.)
Plato said that when the sea level rose to consume Atlantis (coastal cities, one of them, the City of Poseidon, later known as the City of Atlas, or Atlantis), the sea also consumed vast tracts of ancient Greece (at the same time that the climate began to dry out), and this is confirmed by submerged ruins in many locations off Greece, such as off the coast near Astakos, Abdera, Plytra, and Elafonisos, submerged when the Ice Age ended, confirmed by the Flood of Ogygos in ancient greek lore, which brought ancient Greece to anarchy for 189 years, after which, king Cecrops consolidated power and some order in Greece, circa 1300 B.C., as acknowledged by ancient greek historians.
A grandson of Poseidon (Sidon, a son of Canaan) was Geryon, and so, from where do you think the name of the country Algeria came? And not surprisingly, submerged megalithic ruins have also been found off Algeria, the homeland of Geryon’s progeny, and off Libya (named after Poseidon’s wife), submerged there in the greater Gibraltar (which means fire altar) region, part of the Atlantean Empire, as decribed by Plato, which was flooded by the sea level rise with the end of the Ice Age (quite obviously).
And off Morocco, named after Mauri (Mauritania), which means the sea (like marine), the namesake of the Formorians (men of the sea) are also found submerged megalithic ruins, off Tangiers, and a few miles east of Gibraltar, in the shadow of the Atlas mountains, the namesake of Atlas, a son of Sidon (Poseidon). Of course, Atlas was the map man, having calculated distances by measuring time (as he was also known as Chronos, like chronometer), who was able to measure and thereby map the earth by the surprisingly simple methodology which allowed them to navigate by the wobble rate (72 years/degree) of the earth’s axis, having measured time to calculate longitudes, the same system used to calculate the dimensions for the Great Pyramid of Giza, as explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
