the International Atlantis
to aspect number one, Atlantis being in a river delta, we think that this is
obvious, although not commonly accepted. According to the description two
canals met at the central island. Earlier, they would surround the great plain.
Since the plain was sloped towards the south (according to Plato, not us),
simple physics commands that this would require the canal to be unlikely deep
at the very northern part. Together with the intense description of irrigation
systems, canals and the vicinity of the
interesting though is the question what to look for. Actually, it appears to be
very promising to search the
Ulf Richter brought satellite images into the discussion. These images show circular structures. Eliana Garcia, based on quotes from a book of Georgeos Diaz, states: “It was a custom between the Greeks to attribute to the Gods [here: Poseidon, or Iapetos] those constructions that were inexplicable, …”. We agree.
The pictures show a very large structure (Richât structure) with 38 kilometers in diameter and a smaller structure (Semisiyat dome) with only 5 kilometers in diameter. The accordance with the description laid down by Plato is stunning. It appears very likely, that such a structure became a cultural location and a city in the following. Both structures are attributed to Upper Precambrian/Lower Paleozic. The rock consists of a wide range of sandstone (quartzite, limestone, chert, dolerite). A copper mine is located in the vicinity. Signs for volcanic activity as well as an impact origin are absent.
According to the descriptions, a part of the continental layer was pushed up. This layer was composed of different layers of sandstones with differing characteristics with regard to stability. Following this event, erosion formed the circular structures. Obviously, the region used to be the ground of an earlier Ocean. The different layers of sandstone indicate sedimentary processes. Limestone indicates an abundance of shells.
important thing is: This geologic formation is largely identical with the
geology found on the northern continental shelf of the
As a matter
of fact, the “pushing up” of a part of the landmass (table
mountain) is proven for this area: Snake island, off the coast of
We now know what to look for, thanks to Ulf Richter and Atlantisrising. This makes the search a lot easier.
