In all honesty, the explanation is probably something mundane.

I know this is gonna be out of the blue for some people here but can someone tell me what is this Atlantis in short terms? I heard about it for the 1st time today on TCF.

Atlantis..


Quote:
Atlantis (in Greek, Ἀτλαντίς, "daughter of Atlas") is a legendary island first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias.[1]
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".
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 Helike in 373 BC[2] or the failed Athenian invasion of Sicily in 415–413 BC.
The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was actively 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".[3] 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.

it was ''supposedly'' a race of very advanced humans (or maybe they were aliens), the ground Atlantis was built on was said to have very powerful electro-magnetic energy.... when the continents broke up, so did Atlantis (Atlantis was not a city but a continent), parts of this land are apparently responsible for goings on at the ''Bermuda Triangle'' where its believed a piece of Atlantis remains today..... also Iraq is believed to have a large piece deep below the surface, which is why the Sumerians settled there..... all Myth's..?? who knows.


whatever story's you believe (if true) they were very technological, more so than us. IMO
