Introduction Why is it even that after thousands of years, so manyof us still search for the answer to this mystery? Did itexist or didnt it. We cant seem to let go of it. Ever since the first recorded history of Atlantis,written by the Greek philosopher Plato over 2,360years ago, debate has raged as to whether or notAtlantis ever really existed.
Around 350 BC, Plato wrote about a beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean that went under the ocean waves in one day and one night. It took two books to describe the history and details of this almost magical island. For years people have been looking for this mysterious lost city, Atlantis.
The land was said to have been very fertile, withabundant food, water, animals, wood, and flowers. But,as the story goes, after several generations of ruling theleaders became increasingly greedy and corrupt, andstarted to wage war on their neighboring countriesIt is shortly after the victory by the Athenians that theentire Island continent of Atlantis, got submergedbeneath the sea "in a single day and night".
Did Plato write this as a moralistic story or as a truehistoric account? Did Atlantis really exist or not?
The Poseidon Theory Over 11000 years ago in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean there was an island inhabited by great and wealthy people. Then greed started to take over them and they were obsessed with money. Poseidon, the god of water, got mad at them for being obsessed with money. So he made the ocean cover the city of Atlantis and it was gone with the sea.
Is It- Just a Story?• For over two thousand years the story of Atlantis was just a story. Then, in the late 1800s, an American named Ignatius Donnelly became fascinated with the story and wrote a book called Atlantis, the Antediluvian World, which became a bestseller.• Ignatius studied flood history from Egypt to Mexico and believed that Plato was recording an actual natural disaster. Since then, several books have been written about the lost city.
CONCLUSION So what do you think really happened to the city of Atlantis? Do you think Atlantis was real? With our technology advancing in leaps and bounds, we have never stood a better chance of finding Atlantis than we do now. And It may be our generation that finds it, after 11,600 years. Let’s Hope we do!
