THE LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS – The Facts

The mystery of the lost city of Atlantis still captures the imagination of millions. Was it real or just myth. Here are the basic facts.

Solon (638 BC–558 BC) was a famous Athenian statesman, lawmaker, and Lyric poet who allegedly heard the story of Atlantis from Egyptian priests that he was visiting that claimed that the Athenians had forgotten their true history because from time-to-time their civilization had been largely destroyed by catastrophes.

Atlantis was first described by the Greek  philosopher Plato more than 2,000 years ago.

While many believe the story is a myth  created by Plato to illustrate his theories about politics, others insist it is  based on a real historical disaster.

According to Plato’s account, written around  360BC, Atlantis was a major sea power located in the Atlantic.

It was larger than ancient Libya and Asia  Minor (modern Turkey) put together, and was ‘the way to the other islands, and  from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent’.

His account included detailed descriptions of  the island – with mountains in the north and along the coast, and a plain in the  south.

Its kings were descended from Poseidon – the  god of sea – but their divine lineage became diluted as they mixed with  mortals.

By around 9600BC the island had conquered  much of Western Europe and Africa and enslaved its enemies.

This date would make the city nearly as old  as the end of the last ice age and pre-dates the earliest recorded city states,  found in what is now Iraq, so seems rather unlikely.

After a failed attempt to invade Athens, the  entire island sank into the sea ‘in a single day and night of  misfortune’.

Over the centuries, scholars have attempted  to locate the real Atlantis – believing the account was based on a real ancient  superpower.

One of the most plausible theories is that  Plato was describing the Minoan civilisation on Crete and the neighbouring  island of Santorini which was devastated by a massive volcanic eruption around  1600BC.

Some believe the Atlantis myth was inspired  by the Black Sea floods of around 5000BC – an event that may have also generated  the flood stories which appeared in the Old Testament.

 

The Facts!

 

  • The Egyptian priests referred to the “Declamation of Heavenly Bodies”, meaning meteorites, which cause devastation on the planet.                      —–The Egyptian priests understood that from time-to-time there were serious natural catastrophes that involved fire and water (from which they had been largely immune). They attributed these to the actions of the Gods
  • A war once took place between the Athenians and the Atlanteans The Athenians apparently came from Athens.
  • The Atlanteans apparently came from an island beyond the pillars of Hercules (Straights of Gibraltar)
  • The war took place 9,000 years before the time of writing which was approximately 2,500 years before today – so in effect 11,500 years ago.
  • Atlantis was allegedly an island greater in size than Libya and Asia combined.
  • Atlantis was eventually destroyed by an earthquake.
  • The Athenian Gods were at peace with each other.

  • Many floods had taken place during the 9,000 years prior to the recording of the story.
  • Many of the cliffs surrounding this (Athenian) land had been eroded and fallen into the sea. Many of the woods that once existed have disappeared. The land was less eroded and less rainfall was swept into the sea.

  • They used brass to cover their dwellings and brass, tin and orichalcum to cover the outer walls of their cities.
  • Poseidon’s temple at the centre had a barbaric appearance and the roof (interior) was made of Ivory.
  • In the temple there was a statue of the god in a chariot.
  • The lost city of Atlantis made use of private and public baths and then saved the water for use on their fields.
  • The later docks had Triremes and many naval supplies.
  • The Island had cliffs on most sides but was otherwise a plateau with a small mountain at its centre and mountains to the North.
  • The North of the Island had high and beautiful mountains.
  • The plain featured a circular ditch (canyon) of such size (a 100 ft in depth) that it could not have been manmade.

The North of the Island had high and beautiful mountains.

From that point I would like to tell you my personal experience, even I am not an archaeologist, historicus or what ever could put proof on the table or start an argument about this theme. What I know for myself is that Atlantis , for sure have existed, and it was a project from the light master of the Pleiades to colonize Terra with young soul. Because all the time the knowing people argue and forget a very important detail, where are we from and why are we here.

And I can tell you that the royal city of Atlantis was surrounding by seven hug mountains, that now are the seven islands of the Canaries Islands, that's only a part of the old Atlantis that survive the antediluvian time, why I know this, its because I was part of the first souls generation who incarnate for the first time here on Terra and as my Grand Ma told me (she was a very strong medium) that later I will go back where I started, and that's where I am living for almost 18 years, and the Atlantis energy is still present, and I meet everyday more and more Atlantes who are coming back home.

And between us , the NASA know the place, why are they above the Canaries to investigate a star gate we have here, this information have nothing scientistic to do, its pure from my spiritual and personal experience.

(scientist are most of the time not really open mind person and fixed with their study who have been false most of the time to prevent disclosure of our true origin, only the elite use this powerful information, why do you think that they create America as the New Atlantis, and have fails, because Atlantis is fom the light and they are corrupt soul who sell therself to the darkness)

My thoughts, Atlantis and Lemuria are still there, like so many great cities. But as the Earth was once again heated up, so did the last of the ice age meet its final end, Glaciers melted  and the Sea began to raise to flood the known Earth, then it was the central zone from the Equator to the tropic's, Many Cities like Dwarka City of Krishna in India lay beneath the sea.

 

Many city like Thonis-Heracleion-Egypt-lost-underwater-city

In PLATO it is written that they were warned that it would happen and Atlantis was a low lying continent like Mu

Thank you Poppy! I concur! Sometimes I wonder if the history cycle is repeating itself but I do believe man is attempting to control the elements-the wrong way (HAARP et all) but I believe many of us know in our hearts everything is here! I love alternative history and I have an archaeology group too that I have found many of these articles! SO much and SO exciting!!! 

Blessings and thank you for great pics and post Poppy!

Thank you Alexander!!! Blessings bro!
