    It is also precisely to this fact that refers the legend of Atlas, the Pillar of Heaven. Unable to bear the load of an earth overpopulated with gods, Atlas collapsed, and let the sky fall dawn over the earth, destroying it.

    The name of Atlas indeed derives from the Greek radix tla meaning "to bear", preceded by the negative affix a, meaning "not". Hence, the name of Atlas literally means "the one unable to bear [the skies]". Such is the reason why Atlas (and other Titans like himself) are often portrayed with weak, serpentine legs. The collapse of the skies is, of course, a clever allegory of the fall of volcanic dust and debris from the afar explosion of Mt. Atlas. In Hindu myths, one layer buries the former one, giving rise to a new heaven and a new earth, just as we read in Revelation.

    with all of the sightings in various locations i belive that it maybe possible that atlatis might be on the move? thus making it inpossible for scientists to locate atlantis because it just wont stay still!

    I'm not entirely convinced. During the atlantis period, India was under the Ram Rajya the rule of lord rama, on whom the holy book ramayana is based). The rama civilization (if we may call it so) was unusually advanced for it's time so far as written documents and scripts have been found in ancient temples in India which lay out the mechanics to make a airplane) Now in Mahabharatha (another holy book written after ramayana) another civilization is mentioned which existed during the Rama period. Though no name is given to this civilization but the people are called Ashvins. Speculators believe that this is the atlantis civilizations. The mahabharat also talks about a war between rama civ. and ashvinswhich led to the destructions of the cities in India. I live in india and so far i have never heard of any theories about atlantis being in indonesia. Indonesia became predominantly bhuddist during the time of King Ashoka who spread the religion there and some sort of reference would have come forward if this theory is true.
