Quest for Atlantis
Adventures in Science
As always, this web site is committed to a no-nonsense down to earth approach to the problem of the existence of the land of Atlantis, including discussions of its culture, people, language and technology. This web site is dedicated to presenting evidence as clearly and succinctly as possible, with the intent of establishing a viable relationship between the findings of reputable scientists and Plato's famous lost Atlantis. If you are familiar with the Quest for Atlantis web site, but haven't looked at it for awhile, you might want to have another look. New pages have been added, and old ones improved with additional data.
Updates will be indicated by an asterisk beside the title on the respective menus, and all updated text will be in dark red (date of the latest change noted at the bottom of each page). Each update will be normalized after a lapse of six months.
In order to get a clear idea of what this web site is all about, I suggest reading the Summary firstthen the rest should fall into place. There is little attempt to pursue every myth and legend (worldwide) which might relate to the lost civilization: other web sites do an excellent job of that. I have centered my efforts on presenting scientific facts from reputable sources in order to illustrate that Plato's story can be taken seriously by professionals. Scientific sources are provided throughout so that the reader may check on "controversial" material. Great care has been taken throughout to insure that all information here presented is accurate. For those who may be unfamiliar with anthropological and geological terminology, a Glossary is also provided. Learn here about the 12,000-year-old stone temples in "Paleolithic" Europeproof that Stone Age Man did practise monumental architecture! Also of a man-made pyramid under 40 metres of water near Terceira Island in the Azores.
