Are we the first civilization or were there others before us 10000 or more years ago?
Views so far:
Traditional historians and archeologists write Atlantis off as pure myth. They reject any anomalous finds and insist that the axiomatic linear development of civilization would have to be untrue for even the possibility of “an Atlantis” to be considered – and as we all know, it isn’t untrue. Additionally, taking direct cue from Plato, they point out there there simply is NO WAY that a landmass the (estimated) size of Atlantis could ever have existed anywhere in the Atlantic or outside of the Pilars of Hercules (The rock of Gibraltar and either Monte Hacho in Ceuta or Jebel Musa in Morocco, with the latter having the majority consensus).
The available theories (and there are hundreds, if not thousands of them) range from the implausible to very tempting and rational. There’s at least 10 different ones, starting with (1) it was a myth through and through – don’t look for it!, (2) it was indeed in the Atlantic and the Carribean is the most likely location, (3) there was no Atlantis, but there was a flood, hence a tiny part of the story is true, (4) Atlantis was in Southeast Asia, (5) it was somewhere in the mid Atlantic, (6) it was actually in the Pacific – the mythological land of Mu, (7) it was in the Mediterranean and Plato was really referring to the Minoans and the island of Thera, (8) It was the mythical place called Lemuria in the Indian Ocean, (9) It was a reference to the Black Sea Flood, and (10), it was in fact Antarctica, when it was in a more temperate zone.
Needless to say, each of the above theories is backed by findings and their interpretations – some actually quite compelling. The numerous anomalous discoveries and out-of-place-artifacts (a.k.a. “OOPArts”) definitely lend some credence if not to “Atlantis” as such – then at least to an altogether different history of civilization than what we’re prepared to accept today.
