Of course there is evidence of Atlantis.This proves it!!!
But seriously, no offense Duke, but the books you read sound like claptrap. Sort of like chariots of the Gods.
My major in college was geology and while I work in the IT
field a lot of it has been working with geologists, I know a lot about geology for a layperson.
Ain't no way an entire continent can sink in a gigantic cataclysmic disaster.
Continents drift on plates - there are a lot of reasons but basically because the lighter granitic rock lies upon the heavier basaltic rock. The lighter rock settles. Where plates collide and merge,continents can sometimes subduct, but because the granite is lighter, you have strange complicated rock examples, the West coast of South America is one area.
This intro to Plate Tectonics
should help explain better than I can and once understood will make you realize how silly Atlantis sounds.
I suspect that there are a lot of linguistic similarities between supposedly unrelated languages. I'm told that almost all words for mother have an m sound in there. Don't know why. Maybe it is innate. That is no proof of Atlantis or anything else really.
Cro-magnon race of humans are homo sapiens sapiens
, I think all modern humans are homo sapiens sapiens
and thus are cro magnon.Not sure what you're getting at there.
Atlantis began with a story told by Plato, every scholar of Ancient Greek and Plato believes that he meant it as an allegory and sort of a historical novel. It is interesting that in Pre Classical times the island of Santorini blew up, killing the locals there and probably causing locally
cataclysmic tsunamis that hastened the decline of the pre-Greek Minoan civilization. THe Minoans fascinated the ancient Greeks and it is obvious that Plato basically wrote an ancient equivalent of a piece of historical fiction. SO a real event,minor but not of course to the people killed, caused Plato to write a story replete with allegory about angry Gods and justice, since he changed facts here and there, people began to think this story must be fact, and have been looking for a chimera ever since.
Sorry if I'm harsh, but I read about hucksters all the time peddling bad books.
Hope I wasn't being unduly harsh.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.
