On a seafloor map. Or in any Atlas; Look at the seamount at about 36 05 North x 06 40 West; or: 7 KM East x 2 KM North of exactly 7 degrees West x 36 degrees North
About 18 Meters below sea level.
Like Plato wrote: "in front of the Pillars of Hercules"" West of the Pillars of Hercules about 100 KM, nearly due west of the Straight of Gibralter. From an ocean viewpoint, this is in front of that straight.
Sank when the ice jam broke and the North American ice sheet flooded the oceans causing a sudden rise in sea level. Flooding coastlines all around the world all at the same time.
Lost my correspondence with the underwater archaeologist who was mapping that area and preparing dives to "the location Plato described"
It fits, in that it became a shallow muddy spot, where fishermen lost ships in storms many times.
That is the sunken island capital city, which had a vast plain across from it. (Spain)
Just my opinion based on Plato's writings and that one scuba diving underwater archaeologist. He felt the descendants of Atlanteans had become the Phoenicians, later Philistines, Carthagineans; that remnants were inhabitants of the Canary Islands.
edit to cite WIKI on sea level rise: >Since the Last Glacial Maximum about 20,000 years ago, sea level has risen by more than 120 m (averaging 6 mm/yr) as a result of melting of major ice sheets. A rapid rise took place between 15,000 and 6,000 years ago at an average rate of 10 mm/yr which accounted for 90 m of the rise...< That fits in the time frame the Egyptians told Plato.

I don't know but for me Atlantis I see could of been a big UFO! It went away is why it is gone!
Like the Vimanas, they are big like a city. I had a dream (I think) about one. This Indian girl I knew sneaked me in her family's Vimana, to look around, it was cool! ( www.ufoevidence.org/topics/vimanas.htm )
They have enough room to hold your whole family in the afterlife. There was a DR who episode that had a part relating to it. The Tardis had many rooms in it, the DR was going up stairs, room to room. Yet in such a small space.
