The unsolved mysteries of Atlantis

Atlantis is a huge island or mainland that once existed in the Atlantic Ocean west of Gibraltar. The earliest mentions of Atlantis are the works of the ancient Greek philosopher Plato. 12 thousand years ago Atlantis was a rather large island, rich in minerals and a variety of flora and fauna. The head of the country was Atlas (Atlas in Greek, hence the name of the island Atlantis. Atlantes possessed very good knowledge and knowledge unattainable in our time. Why did the island go into the ocean? According to many scientists, the reason was an earthquake that split the island into several parts. Atlantes themselves and predicted the catastrophe. Why they did not escape it, and together with the island went to the bottom? Mystery. But a special caste of guardians were sent to neighboring lands to transfer knowledge.

Where is the hypothetical Atlantis located? There are many opinions. But they all contradict the famous document "Dialogues" of Plato, which describes a more plausible theory of finding Atlantis. According to Plato: Atlantis is an island, it is larger than Libya and Asia and went under water 10-12 thousand years ago. According to the thinker, the island was located across the Strait of Gibraltar.

There is another island on Earth that is very similar to ancient Atlantis - modern Antarctica. The area is exactly the same as described by Plato: a huge island, the glaciation of which began about 8-12 thousand years ago. The island is currently covered with a thick layer of ice. To find out what relief the island had, you need to look at the maps of the 15-16th centuries, compiled by Piri Reis. He pointed out in great detail on the maps the lines of the sea coast and the relief.

Another map was published in 1531 by the French geographer Orondius Finea. He accurately depicted the ice-free mainland Antarctica. The configuration of the mainland corresponded to the maps obtained as a result of modern research. Seismic sounding confirmed details hidden under the ice, but indicated on old maps. Those. before there was a civilization that made maps even before the glaciation of the Antarctic continent. About 10-12 thousand years ago, a catastrophe occurred on the Earth, the climate changed, the earth began to be covered with ice. Most of all, the circumpolar Earths suffered, the inhabitants of which had nowhere to go and retreat, and civilization perished. But was it a hundred for civilization? There are many legends about her. This is an island country rich with high knowledge - Atlantis.

The ancestors of the Atlanteans are considered the Egyptians and American Indians, and even the Slavs. The name of Atlantis and the sunken equipment of Atlanta are sometimes associated with observations of underwater UFOs in the Atlantic and mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. In 1992, in the center of the Bermuda Triangle, at the bottom of the ocean, a pyramid was discovered that was larger than the Cheops pyramid. According to many data, the surface of the pyramid looks like a vitreous substance. More information about this object has not been reported.
