ATLANTIS CHECKLIST


If it is Atlantis, it's gotta be located in the Atlantic Ocean.
Anonymous Wisdom

Introduction

In the present page we gather, in the form of a Checklist, some of the most important pieces of compelling evidence that we have gathered on the location of Atlantis. This Checklist shown below is extremely instructive, as it allows the direct comparison of complex information without the encumbrance of wordy arguments and elaborate justifications.

Of course, the reader may reach different conclusions than ours on certain specific issues. But we are confident that these will not change the overall picture that we are arguing here. However, we will be delighted to discuss these with the reader via our feedback page, and will post both the question and and our answer in this page, giving due credit to the querier. We also thank in advance the readers and critics kind enough to devote their attention to our work and, particularly, those who take the trouble to point out its errors to us or to our editor.

In such a schematic presentation as this, we had to make the decisions whether the specific issue in question was factual, doubtful or unsupported by the evidence. In the Checklist we mark the positively supported items with a tick (V), the doubtful ones with a question mark (?) and the negative ones with an x (X).

In the present work we also comment on the several issues (about 30) that we included in our Checklist. Due to problems of space, this discussion is reduced to the barest minimum, and the reader desirous of more details is referred to our book on Atlantis or to our other papers and essays on the matter. As the reader can see for himself in the Checklist, only the East Indies that is, India and Indonesia fit the data to perfection.

yanni , 01/09:
the indies are in not india but in the atlantic near the USA near CUBA they should include that the indies are small and that plato couldnt have known are the indies 9000BC i dont think so mate maybe you should read an atlas before making comments

ophyukus, 09/09:
For god's sake, how can you tell that the East Indies are "atlantic" were in fact they are in the PACIFIC? You want to find Atlantis and you don't even knoe geography - open an Atlas !
