Someone else claims to have found the lost city of Atlantis
As far back as I can remember, I have heard the legendary story of Atlantis. It’s a story as old as time, really. An ancient city with cutting-edge technology lost in the ocean and that we will never see again. Most consider it to be folklore and completely made up. However, could the lost city of Atlantis really exist, and has it been found?
The story of Atlantis came from the Athenian philosopher Plato and his works, such as Timeaeus and Critias. Plato said that the city fell into the depths of the sea in just one day and one night, and many don’t think it was something Plato believed to be real. History has taken on a life of its own over the past hundred years and is incorporated into so many articles and media (movies, shows, literature, music).
But do you believe in the legend of Atlantis? A man who has done countless research does this and he makes a very convincing argument that not only did Atlantis exist, but was hiding in plain sight.
The YouTube channel called Bright Insight has over 1.1 million subscribers and in recent years has made a few videos that go over some interesting facts and research that the remains of Atlantis may in fact be in Mauritania today, in a place known as Richat. Structure. It is found in West Africa and is sometimes referred to as “the eye of Africa”, due to its bizarre and unique shape that resembles an eye.
The argument made by Jimmy (the channel’s content creator) of Bright Insight is that this structure fits perfectly with Atlantis’ description, which says it was made up of rings of water and earth, which made this structure and that it also contains saltwater deposits based on satellite imagery, which could suggest that the ocean once covered this region thousands of years ago, when the configuration of the continent was very different.
The argument is that a cataclysmic event happened here in the past that raised sea levels and destroyed an ancient civilization that could have been Atlantis. This would have happened around 11,500 years ago – long before many even considered the existence of advanced civilizations. But it does correspond to when scientists believe a massive upheaval in Earth’s climate has taken place.
Jimmy also explains how the structure is exactly the same size (23 km) that Plato described Atlantis as being and there is an opening to the south, as well as mountains to the north, which was also a known description of the Atlantis.
I’m not sure we even know almost everything there is to know about ancient civilizations and some events that happened so long ago, but it certainly goes against what many think it is. facts, although the evidence and research is quite interesting. Maybe Atlantis was a real place, and history was made up about its layout, origin, and location. It would be more credible than a giant continent falling into the ocean.
Obviously, there is no concrete proof that this was Atlantis and it will probably never be proven. There is a good chance this legend will endure long after we are gone and we may never know all the facts about our ancient history.
It doesn’t hurt to wonder though. That’s part of why the story is so fun.
