Atlantis

The legend of Atlantis is a story about a moral, spiritual people who lived in a highly advanced civilization. But they became greedy and the gods became angry because the people had lost their way and turned to bad goals.

Location

The lost city of Atlantis is thought to be somewhere in the Atlantic ocean and other places across the world.For the past two thousand years, no one really thought about Atlantis.People thought what it appeared to be, a mythical place mentioned in a fable by a ancient Greek philosopher,Plato.No traces of Atlantis have been found regardless of the advance of technology and ocean mapping. And there is one question that everyone wants to know. Is it real or is it fantasy?

Atlantis Theories

There are many theories of Atlantis but none have been proven with evidence.Some theories include,Atlantis was swallowed up by the Bermuda Triangle, Atlantis was hit but a tsunami, or Atlantis did not exist at all but Plato created the story.Countless Atlantis "experts" have located the lost city all around the world, based on the same set of facts.Locations,each brought by their own sets of evidence and arguments that include the Atlantic Ocean, Antarctica, Bolivia, Turkey, Germany, Malta, and the Caribbean.The Atlantis legend has been kept alive by imagination and fascination with the idea of a hidden, long-lost paradise.
