Greek philosopher Plato was first told about the mysterious continent of Atlantis. In two of his dialogues he says the following: Atlantis was an island larger than Libya and Asia put together and they are beyond the columns of Hercules (Gibraltar perhaps). With six thousand years before Solon (640-558 i.Hr), Atlantis was a powerful kingdom evolved a civilization and a political ideal. Because of decay and desire to conquer, Atlanteans have kindled the wrath of the gods and Atlantis was submerged under water. Plato said he had heard the story from Critias, who in turn had heard from his grandfather.
A similar story was known in Egypt, 4000 years ago. In a papyrus is told of occurrences of a shipwrecked traveler Egyptian Pharaoh who traveled to the mines. They say he was thrown by the waves on the shore of an island unknown and was taken by a dragon in his dwelling, but you do not hurt. Dragon told that the island was once inhabited by 75 dragons happy, being a land of wealth and desires fulfilled. But now he no longer lived than the rest had been burned by a shooting star. Dragon, after assured it will be rescued by a ship Egypt, said that will never see it again this island because it will be swallowed by water.
Another story says that Atlantis was formed as a civilization over 22,000 years ago. It was a very rich civilization, made up of people who had magical powers that they used to do both good things and bad.
Atlantis was ruled by an emperor. That they form a council made up of former governors of provinces, which he chose carefully. In the provinces, governors were appointed by the king, elected to run state affairs.
In Atlantis there were two high schools, school is the School of Physics and Metaphysics, which had much freedom and have determined the time evolution of the state. Each of these schools have their secret methods to produce gold coins that were paid to obtain state privileges and favorable laws. School of Physics made of gold mining and minerals from sea water. School of Metaphysics has new ways to get gold through magical means lost, people dream of our times, but never really have been discovered since. In addition, the School of Metaphysics deals with magic, to influence decisions of both the drivers and driving, as well as healing. School of Physics deal with recovery from accidents and wars.
It says the Atlanteans made contact with several alien civilizations, they were looking for magic, so the healing and influencing the decisions of leaders.
Children were reared by their mothers, the father having the right to decide what schools will follow. Up to 4 years children were raised and educated in the family or by persons employed. After four years “kindergarten” was required, following that of the 8 years to 14 years to be followed by primary school. Subsequently, binding a simple vocational school for 2 years until age 16, when the child became an adult.
Atlanteans knew radio, which was used only for news and informative programs. It also conveyed information of local interest for the main colony. Television was also known. Capital only few devices were made by aliens. Never television and radio were used for fun.
State and capital inhabitants of Atlantis were located on a large island in the Bahamas and low. The city was very low, on the waterfront (which is written by Plato), their island is quite marshy. The climate was cold and very wet, almost all year round can be seen fog. Atlanteans could not bear the sun and bright light. They ate most of times only to algae, fish and seafood. Occasionally most consumed fruit, vegetables and cereals. Only eat meat three times a year.
The story that the Atlanteans had green skin, reaches a height of up to 3 meters and had long blond hair usually curly.
On the destruction of Atlantis is believed to have occurred due to a conflict with aliens, who have learned of magic that were negative on them. It is believed that these aliens living inside the Moon, where they sent the destructive power of the Atlantic.
All these are stories old and closer to our time. But here there are some scientific discovery of Atlantis.
Historical evidence shows that in the past there had been such island, archaeologists trying to locate the field. Greek archaeologist S. Marinatos, found a large town center where houses have been preserved with all their 2 or 3 floors, showing scenes from daily life of the Atlantic. Found intact furniture and pottery vessels, but no trace of human remains or jewelry. All this was discovered on the small volcanic island of Santorini in the Aegean. Many believe that the volcano erupted, covering and mysterious sinking continent Atlantis. Ashes thrown into the explosion could cover certain portions of the island with a layer 30 meters thick.
French scientist Ferdinand Fouque Tera discovered the island in the Aegean Sea a city buried in volcanic ash with a length of over 3000 years. Medieval authors believed Atlantis as a real place, knowing its story from Arab geographers. They considered Atlantis a beautiful island, called” lucky” island,” the island of seven cities” or” island” Brendan, all marked the fourteenth and fifteenth century maps.
