Ancient historian K. T. Frost, back around 1910, wrote some articles proposing that the minoan civilization of Crete was Atlantis, based upon the likeness of the architecture and religion of the bronze age Minoans to what was described by Plato in his Critias and Timaeus about Atlantis, but of course, Frost’s geography is all wrong (read under category here Atlantis Revealed), nevertheless, he did realize that Plato was describing bronze age civilizations (atlantean and greek), and therefore, proposed that Plato’s story of Atlantis took place 900 years, not 9,000 years, before Solon’s (600 B.C.) time.
Back around 1910, it wasn’t known that Santorini had exploded circa 1500 B.C., which no doubt sent several tsunamis against the island of Crete, and the sea level had begun to rise at that time too, because the Ice Age was ending, when hundreds of oceanside stone cities throughout the Mediterranean, eastern Atlantic, off India, Japan, and elsewhere, were consumed by the sea, with submerged ruins reported too off eastern Crete, and of course, just to the south, the submerged ruins of Menouthis and Heraklion near Alexandria, Egypt, and to the east, the submerged canaanite ports of Sidon, Yarmuta, and Byblos.
Therefore it’s no coincidence that the 1500 B.C. timeframe is when the Exodus of the Jews out of Egypt occurred, the disasters, anarchy, and drought at that time confirmed by the egyptian Ipuwer Papyrus, and with Santorini exploding in that timeframe too, it was a wild ride, catastrophic drying, and prodigious sea level rise, because the Ice Age was ending, when also, the cities of Atlantis, in the shadow of the Atlas mountains, were consumed by the sea.
