No.  Atlantis is/was Thira (modern day Santorini).  Not every sunken piece of land is "Atlantis."

Also...WTF?

Pretty sure the RPG Rifts had this covered about 20 years ago.

And it had more scientific integrity then than Raw Story does now.

That's a lot of Atlantises.

Could be interesting, if there's somewhere we need to concentrate research it's in the oceans.

Meh,
everybody knows that Atlantis is actually Antarctica. That the volcano that the Goa'uld

Damn crustal displacement.  One day, you're in the Mediterranian, and the next day, you're stuck in the middle of nowhere, covered in ice, and flightless birds are crapping all over you.

From your link:

There are some, however, who question whether the city beneath the swamp is in fact Atlantis. Ireland, after all, is approximately the same size as Atlantis, and it is an island. For that matter, Atlantis could be any of several islands in the Mediterranean Sea. More extreme arguments have placed the lost city somewhere in Finland or the Bermuda Triangle. Then, of course, it may not exist at all, such as legends go.

Not the most convincing rebuttal I've ever read.

spentmiles: DubtodaIll: Could be interesting, if there's somewhere we need to concentrate research it's in the oceans.

My son was born after a particularly difficult vaginal birth.  He was twenty-seven pounds and ripped his poor mother like a hurricane kite.  A few days after the birth, we all went for a much needed vacation at the beach.  The wife was feeling better, so she spent quite a bit of time in the water.  Well, the salt caused her to heal rapidly, completely sealing her vagina.  We'd spent just about all of our savings on the delivery and vacation, so we had to leave it that way.  I figured I'd save some money over time and get it fixed, but you know how that goes - new tires, water heater, flat screen sale.  We just never got around to it.  I think we should spend more money on investigating the healing properties of the ocean.  If it could completely heal a vagina, imagine what it could do for cancer.


That's incredible, 27 lbs of labia lacerating shiat machine and the ocean sealed that thing up tighter than rusted bolt you say?  Surprised you didn't go the cheap route and have her sit on a machete.  Reminds me of those times back in the day playing with super glue.  You know when you were 8 and she was 36 and she said "I never want to be apart from you."  Those incidents left some really interesting scars, both physical and emotion.

if the continent disappeared millions of years ago, why is there (relatively) modern lore about it?

I don't think they're saying it's Atlantis. I think they're saying it's "an Atlantis", which is just stupid. I guess if every sunken island is defined as an Atlantis, then it makes sense. I don't know.

I'm devastated you're not convinced. Nobody, obviously, knows for sure where it was, but it seems unlikely, "Pillars of Hercules", that it was Santorini. Short of draining Coto Donana, we'll likely never know for sure.

Pffft...What is all this talk about Atlanta? I live here and I have seen petrified turds that big in MARTA stations.

For those familiar with Raw Story, what kind of journalistic farkup is this?:

a) Editor briefly scans article, and needs what he thinks is a catchy headline to hook the proles into reading the story.
b) ZOMG!!!11! All powerful ancient civilization, which was still somehow destroyed by a single volcano, discovered! Is this the real Atlantis??!!? FW:FW:FW:

Basically, disinterested contempt or gullible idiocy?

Duh...  Atlantis was in the Amazon. Marquis Martinez built it as part of his plan to destroy the Francos and take over the Portugal and the world.

I think a drunken lemur with head trauma  mashed together random words to make a quackery come-on.

I lose all faith that a story has a basis in fact once it references the FICTIONAL society of Atlantis. That said, I came for the picture and was not disappointed.

I meant that your article wasn't convincing in arguing about Tarshish (a Biblical city in Spain, sinking without record c. 800-500 BC? No.).  I know a bit about Thera and I agree with you there.

Atlantis is South America, specifically northern Argentina.

Plato wrote a book about it a few thousand years ago  Then Ignatius Donnelly wrote another book about it 130 years ago and kicked off the current Atlantis craze.  Probably the most influential thing ever done by a 19th century Congressman.

Maybe they lived on Gibraltar.  When the oceans were lower because of the ice age.. and the mediterranean barely existed as a great salt lake..   Then the ice melts and the earthen dam gives way rushing sea water to fill the basin.. giving rise to both Atlantis falling into the sea, and THE flood.

I... uh... that....
What does this have to do with anything? Atlantis was a fictional, hypothetical society. Not some lost island shrouded in mystery.

It is either a turd taking a turd, or someone burned their Kuado while smoking in bed.
