Was atlantis real and if you were did

  1. 1. By :Abi .Gaver<br />Was Atlantis real and if do were did it go ?<br />
  2. 2. What is Atlantis ?<br />Atlantis (in Greek, "island of Atlas") is a legendary island first mentioned by Plato In Plato's account, Atlantis was a naval power lying "in front of the Pillars of Hercules" that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon or approximately 9600 BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune".<br />Scholars dispute whether and how much Plato's story or account was inspired by older traditions. Some scholars argue Plato drew upon memories of past events such as the Thera eruption or the Trojan War , while others insist that he took inspiration from contemporary events like the destruction of Heike in 373 BC or the failed Athenian invasion of Sicily in 415–413 BC.<br />The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was discussed throughout classical antiquity but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. As Alan Cameron states: "It is only in modern times that people have taken the Atlantis story seriously; no one did so in antiquity". While little known during the Middle Ages, the story of Atlantis was rediscovered by Humanists in the Early Modern period. Plato's description inspired the utopian works of several Renaissance writers, like Francis Bacon's "New Atlantis". Atlantis inspires today's literature, from science fiction to comic books to films, its name having become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations.<br />
  3. 3. Was Atlantis a part of Pangaea ?<br />These were the great continents of civilizations. Pangaea, Lemuria and Atlantis all three-were a part of the original landmass. They were interactive with each other. The oldest civilization that became highly advanced and technical was Atlantis. Its boundaries were the southern hemisphere of the globe. Lemuria was basically the Pacific Ocean areas, extending far into the northern hemisphere beyond Japan and China. When Atlantis sank, her technologies and much of her information was taken to Lemuria. The next great civilization was that of Pangaea, approximately 18 million years ago it began. The civilization of Lemuria lasted up until approximately 50,000 years ago, when darkness overtook it, and it sank.<br />

  5. 5. Is there evidence of Atlantis ?<br />Pyramid explored by Dr. Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970. Brown was accompanied by 4 divers who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings, unidentified metallic instruments, and a statue holding a "mysterious" crystal containing miniature pyramids. The metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there. What was discovered was that the crystal amplified energy that passed through it. <br />It is made in a method unknown to the scientists who analyzed it. It was found in a mysteriously lit up chamber inside the underwater pyramid with some kind of ray gun like instrument pointed at it. Kirlian photographs, which record impressions beyond our limited range of vision, showed an eye inside the crystal not visible to the naked eye. <br />
  6. 6. What tectonic plate would Atlantis be located on ?<br />On August 15, 2005 <br />A submerged island that could be the source of the Atlantis myth was hit by a large earthquake and tsunami 12,000 years ago, a geologist has discovered. Spartel Island now lies 60m under the sea in the Straits of Gibraltar, but some think it once lay above water. <br />The finding adds weight to a hypothesis that the island could have inspired the legend recounted by the philosopher Plato more than 2,000 years ago. <br />Evidence comes from a seafloor survey published in the Geology journal . They also say that it was probably located on the Arabian plate.<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Is Atlantis under the earths crust ? Is it possible ?<br />It would be very impossible for a tectonic plate to sink below the oceanic crust or continental crust . If Atlantis did exist it could not go under the crust because the mantle is to hard for a whole continent to break through the upper mantle .People could not survive under the crust there would not be enough oxygen and the temperature would be to great .It would take about 500 years or so for human beings to even adapt to the lack of oxygen . We don’t really know if people could be living on Atlantis .<br />
