Where did the story of Atlantis really come from?
However, Plato said that he got the story from Socrates, who heard it from Solon, who was told the story by the ancient Egyptians. Oh, dear... Something tells me that the story changed a great deal before Plato got a hold of it; ha! Okay, now take the story of Atlantis from there, from where Plato had it, regardless if he made it up or not. Over the years, I have heard various versions, all changing to better suit the time, place, condition, and the actual storyteller at hand. I've heard variations from supposed prophets and even from people like Edgar Cayce, for yet another example. I have heard that the lost city of Atlantis sank close to the Bermuda Triangle all the way down to Lake Vostok in Antarctica. Wow! I have heard of it consisting of mythical Gods all the way down to an intellectual race of extraterrestrials that took advantage of crystal technology.
Do I think that advanced races of beings once lived on this lovely blue planet for a short while before they vanished? Yes. Do I think the story of Atlantis is accurate? No.
