It is said that the Lost City of Atlantis was once an advanced civilization that .

Atlantis was described by ancient Greek philosopher, .

Plato, as " beautiful, and a wealthy island, governed by the precepts of Poseidon .

(Neptune)." (Encyclopedia Americana). Even though Plato was a great and well respected .

philosopher, his claims with no evidence pose questions, like for example: Did the Lost .

City of Atlantis really exists? Or was he just under the influence? And ect .

.

There is plenty of evidence supporting Plato's claims of Atlantis, but not from his .

time, no, this evidence was shown by modern technology. According to Brtitish Royal .

Air force Photo interpreter J. M. Allen " Atlantis is in Atiplano, near the Andes .

mountains, in Bolivia." (kidzwerld.com). Sure that's some evidence, but it is not enough. .

A famous psychic chandler Edgar Cayce believes that the remains lay deep within the .

coast Florida, near Bimini Island. Other people believe that it lays somewhere in Central .

America, the China Sea, or Africa, according to kidzwerld.com. Also Plato stated that .

"Atlantis was a large island in the Atlantic Ocean, West of the Pillars of Hercules." .

(Academic American Encyclopedia). Clearly everyone had his or her own opinion on where .

Atlantis once ruled the seas.

Anyway, if the city of Atlantis was really located near the Pillars of Hercules, then .

that would mean that Plato enjoyed traveling, which he did not. (kidzwerld.com). Plato .

wrote of Atlantians as if he knew them and how they were. He described them as .

" Great engineers and architects." Plato also described their habitat, "There were .

palaces, harbors, temples and docks. The capitol was built on a hill and surrounded by .

rings of water that were joined by tunnels large enough for a ship to sail through. A .

huge canal connected the outer rings of water to the ocean. On the outskirts of the city .

there were fields miles long were farmers grew the city's food.
