Im sure the're where many lands where people lived that submerged, but... you guys don't seriously believe everything this article claims right?
Blam likes the ideas in Oppenheimer's book, me, not so much. But regarding belief, I post a lot of topics that I don't necessarily agree with, just because they are food for thought. There are FReepers who don't like this or that, and I'm one of them :') but I don't get all that hot and bothered any longer, other than last week...
My view of Atlantis is -- if it existed and wasn't just a literary device -- Plato's description of its location is quite clear and specific, and there's no need to look in the Baltic, the Antarctica, northern Africa, Thera, Crete, Anatolia, Peru, Wisconsin, or a host of other places that people have claimed it was located.
During the glaciation, ocean levels were much lower. All other things being equal, the climate would be better at a lower altitude, and the food supply would be also. Furthermore, glaciation has happened a number of times in the past 2 million years. So, that's where most of what we call humanity really comes from, and the search for human traces under the ocean has barely begun.
