In the book Timaeus , Plato recounts , in the face of " Mainstay Haigelisi Strait , there is a very large island , from there you can go to the other islands , the islands in front of it is land entirely surrounded by ocean sea , it is the kingdom of Atlantis . When the new Atlantis will launch a major war with Athens , but unexpectedly Atlantis suddenly experienced earthquakes and floods , not until the day and night , completely submerged in the seabed .
Large countries that have a high civilization and even then vanish overnight " .
One section in the book Critias dialogue , recorded the Atlantis story told by the younger cousin Critias . Critias is a pupil of the philosopher Socrates , three times he emphasizes the existence of Atlantis in the dialogue . The story comes from an oral story that is common man Joepe Critias , while Joepe also heard from a Greek poet named Solon [ 639-559 BC ] . Solon was the wisest among 7 all- wise ancient Greece, a time when Solon around Egypt , from the place of worship of ancestral graves to know the legend of Atlantis . Note the dialogue as below;
" There is a large inland over the Atlantic Ocean towards the western Mediterranean Sea very much , which is proud of the amazing civilization . He produces gold and silver are innumerable , the palace is surrounded by walls lined by a wall of gold and silver . Walls are walls in the palace throne gold , brilliant and magnificent . there , the level of development of civilization amaze people . Has the port and ships with perfect equipment , there are also things that can bring people to fly . His power is not just confined to Europe , even as far away as mainland Africa . Having hit by a devastating earthquake , he drowned to the bottom of the sea and its civilization , also lost in the memories of the people " .
According to Plato's calculations , when the sinking of the kingdom of Atlantis , approximately 11,150 years ago . Plato had said several times , the state of the kingdom of Atlantis passed down through generations . rekaannya was not alone . Plato even went to Egypt seek local monks and the famous monk at that time . Teacher of Plato is Socrates when talking about the kingdom of Atlantis also stressed , because it is real , its value is much stronger than the story that is engineered .
If all expressed Plato was indeed real , then since 12,000 years ago , human civilization has created . But where is the kingdom of Atlantis ? Since thousands of years ago people put a great interest towards this . Until the 20th century since 1960 , Bermuda sea located in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the Bahamas , and the sea around the islands of Florida 've discovered the wonders of successive earth-shattering .
One day in 1968, around the Bimini islands in the Atlantic Ocean cluster Bahama Island , the sea calm and clear like glass is bright , opaque to the bottom of the sea . Some divers on the way back to the islands of Bimini , suddenly there were shocked . At the bottom of the sea there is a big way! Some divers plunge down simultaneously , it was also a major road stretches composed of a giant rock . It is a major road that was built using stone rectangle and polygon , stone size and thickness are not the same , but the preparation is very neat , bright contours . Is this a postal road kingdom of Atlantis ?
By 1979 , American and French scientists with highly sophisticated instruments devices find the pyramid on the seabed " triangle of death " Bermuda sea . The length of the pyramid approximately 300 meters , a height of approximately 200 meters , the peak of the pyramid with the surface of the ocean is only 100 meters , larger than the Egyptian pyramids . The bottom of the pyramid there are two giant holes , sea water with amazing speed flow in the bottom of the hole . The great pyramid , is built by the people of Atlantis ? Atlan royal forces never conquered Egypt , whether the civilization of Atlantis brought to the Egyptian pyramids ? American continent there are also pyramids , whether derived from Egypt or from the kingdom of Atlantis ?
In 1985 , two Norwegian sailors discover an ancient city beneath the sea area " triangle of death " . In the photos made by both of them , there are plains , roads large vertical and horizontal as well as the hall , dome -roofed houses , arenas complaints [ animals ] , temples , river banks and others. They both said , " Absolute trust , which we find is the continent of the Atlantic ! Same exactly as Plato described ! " Is that correct ? Which is unfortunate , Bermuda triangle pyramid seabed , successfully investigated over the surface of the sea by using sophisticated instruments, until now no one scientist can determine whether a building is actually built by human labor , as it may be an underwater mountain peak pyramid-shaped .
Photo relics of ancient buildings on the sea floor taken Russian expedition team , also can not prove there is former kingdom of Atlantis . After that no expedition team dives into the ocean floor stone path in the depths of the Atlantic island of Bimini , take a sample of " street rock " and done research laboratory and analyzed .
The results show , that this stone path has not reached the age of 10,000 years . If the road is made by nations the kingdom of Atlantis , at least not less than 10,000 years old . Regarding the photos shown both the Norwegian sailor, until now was not able to prove anything.
The only conclusion that can be obtained is precisely true that there is a land sank in the Atlantic seabed . If it is true over the Atlantic ocean kingdom of Atlantis ever existed , and the kingdom of Atlantis is completely submerged in the Atlantic seabed , the seabed in the Atlantic certainly traces can be found . Until now , the kingdom of Atlantis remains a mystery of all time .
