Nice guys but what's all this got to do with mythology? So far it's all general history, anthropology and archaeology. You've only started discussing and you're already off-topic.

It's a mythological site, that has supposedly been found. It's not as off topic, as (oh say for example) coming in and correcting an offtopic forum post for being offtopic.

And Escalas, they wouldn't have known really. I mean, there was much more glacial movement, much more water tied up in glaciers... We're not talking about a modern geologist in Conan's court or something here.

As for which makes more sense... All of this goes back to the unification of ancient man explaining architectural similarities between civilizations (Quite literally) Worlds apart. While the Atlantic seems to be Plato's location, I would think the region of the Yonagumi monument would make more sense, being in the path of the people migrating northward, towards the landbridge.

Ha nice one.

I think Atlantis propribly was in the middle of the 'Ring of fire' and got melted when the plates moved away, sort like if you where standing on 2 wheelbarrows and they both move in two different directions, you end up... or rather you end down...

The only problem is, that the pacific coast divergent boundaries are only about a 100 miles off the coast of the northern pacific coast (About Washington). More though, landmasses don't form from an undersea rise. The crust that is formed by hardening divergent boundaries is dense undersea crust, not continental crust. For a divergent boundary to shat out a piece of continental crust is highly improbable, near impossible... okay no, it Is impossible. If your talking about a possible landmass like Pangea being broken up by the divergent boundries... the last time that happened was over 50 million years ago, beating the evolution of human beings by over 48 million years. Even then, the pressure of a continental crust being broken by a forming divergent boundry form vallies, and rift the continent apart, not vaporize the landmass to have it quickly subducted.

The only place where a landmass could form, would possibly be on the hotspot that forms Hawaii, but that wasn't being moved at a slow enough speed to form a significant landmass for millions of years.

The only islands really formed by anything, would be the subduction island archipelagos around the ring... IE Japan.

Yes, what is the problem with it being in the Atlantic Ocean? Maybe it was at about the same heigth of Africa. There are African elephants, you know?

Red rocks is no problem, there are red rocks we know of. Rubies, for example.

And well, we have water ways all over the place.

It was not only Plato's location. There have been some maps made, later, by other people, that also indicate that it is somewhere around that neighbourhood.
Then again, they could very well have been inspired by Plato...

The problem is not really where an island could have formed, since the island probably had been there for a long, long time. The problem is where an island could have dissapeared.

I'm voting for the Bermuda-triangle

Funny how I'm reading a book called "Atlantis", by David Gibbins (an underwater archaeologist). Atlantis was said to derive from the Atlantic Ocean, but this man believes that Plato (I think) said that the island would exist there because civilisations in the Mediterranean know not a lot about the Atlantic Ocean, and so through hyperbole tried to make it seem like some unknown mystical fortress island in an unexplored region. Whereas most likely if it ever existed it was a citadel on a peninsula near to Crete and the Black Sea, most likely in the Aegean somewhere. And was destroyed by the volcanic eruption (can't remember volcano) that made great tsunamis.
