CASE 333 - Atlantis
Greek mythology, chinese mythology, stories and even the truth movement today claims that The City of Atlantis existed and was destroyed by earthquakes, and major portions of the city sank into the sea, in 9,600 BC, there are many different stories and locations but they all belive that they were advanced humans. The fertile farmlands of the Island of Atlantis sank and formed the Sea of Azov. Tsunamis sweep in over Atlantis City from the Black Sea. Shoals of mud blocked Kerch Strait, which blocked passage into the Sea of Azov.
The historical Hill of Mithridat is located in the center of the Crimean city of Kerch. Beneath the hill are numerous underground rock quarries, rooms and catacombs, as described in Plato's Atlantis Dialogues.
Fifty feet offshore in Kerch Strait, are clearly visible ruins of 7 feet thick stone walls and foundations of guard towers. The foundation stones of a defensive wall, 45 feet thick, have been located submerged in Taman Bay, on the Russian side of Kerch Strait.
Atlantis City was founded by benevolent "gods" which united with primitive Earth-born Tribes. Numerous archeological sites of prehistoric Neanderthal settlements surround Kerch, Ukraine. This area was an ice age haven, which attracted a wide range of animals, including primitive man, to this fertile primeval paradise.
According to Plato, Atlantis was a naval power lying "in front of the Pillars of Hercules" that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9600 BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune". There have been dozens of locations proposed for Atlantis, to the point where the name has become a generic concept, divorced from the specifics of Plato's account. This is reflected in the fact that many proposed sites are not within the Atlantic at all. Few today are scholarly or archaeological hypotheses, while others have been made by psychic or other pseudoscientific means. Many of the proposed sites share some of the characteristics of the Atlantis story (water, catastrophic end, relevant time period), but none has been demonstrated to be a true historical Atlantis.
