There is not a single shred of evidence for the existence of Atlantis.
There is not a single shred of evidence for the existence of God.

Since no-one would deny the believers in God, you too are entitled to your fantasies.

Not a single clay pot, or clay tablet, associated with Atlantis "The Lost Continent",
and yet "Great Weapons of Destruction, and Advanced Science" attributed to it.

all sweet mate.

i can see why believers in Atlantis would want to distance themselves from believers in God.
God is a fiction that we can never know.
At least Atlantis is terrestrial.

The only possible insult i see in my argument is to liken a belief in God to a belief in Atlantis.
If your only argument is to question my argument with an insult to my questionable intelligence, then you're just an edgewalker.
I really don't think anyone cares that you've elected yourself to be an unelected moderator of what is proper on the Seti forums.
You would first have to pass the test of being a rational, dispassionate supporter of the Seti project. The rational part you may have a problem with,
what with bouncing off the furniture in an alcohol stupor.

Like i said.
all sweet mate.

Guido.

i knew you would.

You are close but maybe it wasn't a continent maybe it did not sink maybe it appeared to have sunk , when in fact the sea rose and in was flooded under a few hundred meters of ocean and maybe there is a elevated area big enough to have supported a city and was surrounded by a small channel that would have had to have been crossed by boat .And maybe Plato was correct about the area he said it was

12000 years ago was when the last ice age [/quote]

Of cause this is just a theory with some science however until they go back and take a core sample it may never be known

12000 years is a lot of sediment to cover any evidence
[/quote]

Not sure what you're trying to say here.
The last ice age may not have occurred 12000 years ago?
Just a theory?
What are you smoking?

Why should this thread be any different than most others? I have long marveled at the weird turns some topics take.

Whether or not Atlantis was real, civilisations of that period did in fact exist as we know from the many archaeological discoveries.

It is to Man's credit that we are a curious race of people, we like knowledge & exploring.

Unfortunately, Man in his current guise will make it extremely difficult for future archaeologists in that we won't leave "material" fossils but a digital one!

Floppies, CP/M GEM Dos 3 Win 8 etc, how will they be able to access especially as big companies like Microsoft want us all to go to subscription services a la cloud.

Where will the books be? Will future archaeologists be able to decipher the digital messages left?

Written documents are the main source of information about our past. There are some writing systems still not understood, such as Linear A of Crete. but most of the ancient alphabets (and hieroglyphs) have been deciphered thanks to findings such as the Rosetta Stone. I am not sure about magnetic disks, floppies, tapes etc. We cannot read even many magnetic recordings done in recent times given their constant evolution. Maybe punched card will be more durable.

Of course Atlantis is real. It is in my daughter's boyfriend's gym bag. Going by the smell, there has to be something ancient and dead in there. :P

Atlantis is right here in Georgia. Just 240 miles from Nashville.

I agree, but there are some here that are acting as if there is no evidence for there being any grain of truth to such legends.

I think there is some basis behind the Greek poetic works about Atlantis similar to the stories about Troy. My personal take is that Santorini is what remains of Atlantis despite the inconsistency regarding it's location. Most of the other claimed sites are most likely wishful thinking on the part of quasi experts who push their theories to sell books or get financing for expeditions.

This is one of 3 place that may be the location of Atlantis . 2 is in Silves
if I find the doco i'll put the 3rd place all of then are near the entrance of the Mediterranean

Not Santorini or Minoa or over near Brazil

I make no claim as to knowing where it is if it ever was real

Some people think that the Canary Islands are what is left of Atlantis. Their location nicely fits the traditional description.

The Azores are a different set of islands located NW of the Canary Islands, in the North Atlantic. Again, that could be a possible location for the remains of Atlantis as the Canaries, but there is no proof.
