The lost City of Atlantis has fascinated people all over the world for Hundreds of years. The story was first documented in 350BC by a man named Plato. He wrote of an amazing city with an advanced civilization There were beautiful buildings such as Palaces, Harbors, Temples and Docks. Atlantis was said to of been built on a hill surrounded by 2 rings of water, both joined by tunnels. On the out-skirts of the city, Farmers would grow food in the surrounding fields.
This story was believed to be just a Myth until the late 1800's when an American man named Ignatius Donnelly became obsessed. He believed that what Plato had written was an actual recording of real life, a diary. Donnelly even studied flood history from Egypt to Mexico.
It was told that Atlantian's were an extremely advanced civilization They were great engineers and architects. It's also thought by some people that they had psi powers, meaning they could do clairvoyance, precognition, telekinesis telepathy and teleportation. They had a connection to Ancient wisdom, Aliens and UFO's.
The City of Atlantis is said to of been somehow destroyed and is thought to be buried under water. Although its not know exactly where under water, there are some theories. Some people have said its near Bimini Island - Altiplano - Near Andes Mountains - Bolivia - Central America - China Sea - Africa - Near Cuba - Off the coast of Devon - Spartel Island and Santorini AKA Island of Thera. But its mostly thought of as being in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The World is 3/4 of water, so there's plenty of places it could be hiding. Or it could just be a myth, a story created by a bored traveler. Nobody knows for certain and it could be a long time before there's ever any proof found. Either way its an amazing story and would be an incredible discovery if true.
1) In 1500BC there was a massive eruption from a Volcano. It apparently ripped apart the island of Santorini in the Mediterranean. Most of the Civilization was wiped out. If the City of Atlantis was anywhere nearby, it could of been destroyed along with other islands.
2) The second theory is the same as above. Only this time, it may of been an earthquake.
3) Atlantis was filled with an alien colony. This is why the people from the city were so much more advanced from us at the time. Maybe they created some type of weapon or Technology gone wrong (Example: Some type of bomb).
