Plato on Atlantis

The history of Atlantis was told to Plato by his grandfather Solon the Lawgiver. Solon was told the story by Egyptians. Plato's Critias contains the following:

"O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age.
And I will tell you why. There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and water, and other lesser ones by innumerable other causes. There is a story, which even you have preserved, that once upon a time Paethon, the son of Helios, having yoked the steeds in his father's chariot, because he was not able to drive them in the path of his father, burnt up all that was upon the earth, and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt."  (

The fragment that contains the story of Atlantis is incomplete and cuts off abruptly. What is missing? Did the "men in black" seize this evidence as they do other evidence? Atlanteans are often proactive in maintaining their invisibility. They seem to destroy evidence of their existence when possible. Abductee memories are erased. Perhaps it was the men in black who burned the Library of Alexandria?

"Even during Solon’s lifetime, Egyptian civilization was ancient, already holding claim to more than two thousand years of history, so this part of the story would be entirely plausible. However, the priests of Saïs-as Plato’s character Critias tells-insisted that the Atlantean-Athenian war was waged some 8,000 years before Solon’s lifetime-circa 9,000 b.c.: far older than any evidence modern archeologists have thus far found for civilization in the Mediterranean Basin, or anywhere in the world for that matter." ( Contrary to the author's assertion here, there is evidence of an ancient civilization centered in the Atlantic ocean dating to over 11,000 years ago.

The Atlantean civilization is the origin of  the Indo-European languages. Atlanteans spoke the language that split into many languages. Proto-Indo-European was spoken by the civilization emanating from the continent of Atlantis before the Tower of Babel fell. Atlantean civilization was global and spoke a globally used language over 11,000 years ago. This linguistic power is a sordid boon.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
— Genesis 11:1–9[10]

The human capacity to develop technology evolved over 100,000 years ago. As undeveloped cultures today show, the capacity does not have to manifest in modern technology. Symbol systems like maths, pictographic representation systems, and alphabets need to be created before they can be applied to create technologies. Every human has the capacity to learn complex symbol systems. Few do. Atlanteans have been applying complex symbol systems for over 11,000 years. We have only been developing technology based upon complex symbol systems for a few centuries. This makes them seem today to be other worldly. But, it is not an alien species more evolved than us; it is a human species more developed by 11,000 years.

Atlanteans' exact biological relationship to surface humans is a question. They may have branched off into their own form of hominin species: Homo sapiens atlanteanis.

The destruction of Atlantis may have been caused by human activity. The continent of Atlantis, what today is the mid-Atlantic Ridge, was submerged by the oceans. The oceans also rose significantly 11,000 - 14,000 years ago due to the end of the last ice age and the melting of polar and glacial ice.

Human beings today could suffer a cataclysmic destruction as the Atlanteans did. Plato's cautionary tale of global destruction is more relevant today than ever. Although Plato insists the destruction of Atlantis is not a myth, it is still taken as such. The reason Atlanteans build their cities beneath the ground below the earth's deepest trenches is because they think long term. They know how dangerous the surface of the earth can be because of weather, climate, earthquakes, volcanoes, asteroids, [click HERE] comets, solar activity, and perhaps other dangers unknown to surface humans.

Underground bunkers exist today to house "elite" military and government survivors of a nuclear winter or other global destruction. The theory proposed here, that aliens are from Atlantis, is based on the idea that Atlanteans made similar plans over 11,000 years ago. That is, UFO/USO activity today indicates some Atleanteans survived. Their civilization exists to this day. Their interest in us is based upon our ability to destroy the planet we share by engaging in a thermonuclear war and other destructive behavior.

There exists in Turkey an underground shelter complex 12,000 thousand years old. It predates the Hittites by thousands of years.

Ufologist Stanton Friedman suggests destructive human activities like nuclear explosions may be attracting the attention of aliens across the galaxy. While it is true human activity may radically alter the earth, why would beings light years away care? If there are intelligent beings in other solar systems, they likely have more immediate concerns. The theory that human activities would inspire alien beings to travel light years to earth assumes much. However, our activities do pose an immediate threat to human beings with whom we share this earth. Indeed, UFO interest in our nuclear activity may have been proven by the Soviets intentionally summoning UFOs through military exercises. (See "Alien Nuclear Interventions" section.)
