Here I am posting my latest research on the possible locations and borders of the ten nations of Atlantis as described by Plato. People ask me where I think Atlantis existed. A better question is where it didn’t exist. According to Plato, Atlantis was a ten nation empire that covered two continents the size of Asia and ancient Libya combined. Ancient Libya at the time of Plato covered almost a third of Africa. According to Plato, this massive double continent “island” was surrounded by an ocean so vast it made the Mediterranean look like a bay. Plato goes on to imply that some of the nations occupied islands east of this massive double continent. The Rome-like capital of this enormous empire- Poseidon- was so large that Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, and Vermont could have fit within its city limits with room left over. Again according to Plato it was this massive capital- Poseidon- that sank beneath the waves, not the empire. Everything else I believe was crushed, burned, drowned, buried, or vaporized during the cataclysmic end of the Second Age when the poles were toppled and the oceans raised 800 feet during a violent upheaval possibly involving meteor strikes, 2000 foot high tidal waves, massive earthquakes, and multiple volcanic eruptions that made Krakatoa look like a camp fire.
I believe six of the ten nations of Atlantis are buried 300 hundred to 1000 feet beneath North, Central, South America, and Antarctica. Antarctica was ice free and attached to South America at the time Plato says Atlantis existed. (9000 BCE) I believe the empire’s capital- Poseidon- lies drowned beneath the sands of the Caribbean south of Cuba and east of Mexico.
I will draw each of the nations of Atlantis and post them here.
