Plato’s story of Atlantis is certainly real to those seekers who have seen through the story’s internal contradictions and historical impossibilities which ‘though the unknowing either assiduoulsy ignore or haven’t heard:
1) Plato wrote that Atlantis was larger than Libya and Asia combined, and that it extended far inside the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) into the Mediterranean as far as the Tyrrhenian Sea (Italy) and Libya, and outside the Pillars into the Atlantic as well, how far he didn’t say, so since to the greeks of Solon’s time (he first reported this Atlantis story later recorded by Plato), Asia often meant mediterranean coastal Asia, and Libya coastal north Africa, that Atlantis was larger is certainly true, an ice age coastal empire, to the west of dynastic Egypt and the bronze age kings of Greece.
2) He wrote that the known historical greek kings Cecrops, Erichthonius, Erysichthon, Erectheus, and Theseus, lived in the general timeframe of the sinking of Atlantis (actually just after), with those kings confirmed by other sources to have lived circa 1400 b.c., when the ice age was ending, the sea level having risen described too as the Flood of Ogyges, who also lived in that timeframe, Plato’s confirmation in having written that Greece was flooded when Atlantis was.
3) The atlantean plain, to the north of the coastal concentric ring canal city of Posidon or Atlas (now submerged), with mountains farther to the north, in light of what you’ve just read, must be the plain of southern Spain, with the mineral rich Sierra Morena’s and Nevada’s to the north, the Guadalquivir anciently known as the Tarsis (biblical Tarshish) River, and the famous Rio Tinto anciently known as the Iber (biblical Heber).
4) Bronze age weaponry and shipping in Plato’s Atlantis story hardly jibe with the egyptian priests’ (who told Solon) 9,000 years before their time date for the sinking of Atlantis (and much of Greece), so why did they make-up that date? They said that Egypt by their time was 8,000 years old, yet Greece and Atlantis began over 9,000 years before them, so who were the egyptians then who supposedly heard the story since Egypt wasn’t around? And why didn’t Plato know the Flood of Ogyges story which would have made him think twice that the flood of Atlantis (and much of Greece) was the same as the Flood of Ogyges, who lived at the same time as the kings Plato mentions in the story?
