Atlantis does it really existed? Is it really out there? If it is will we ever find it? These are all frequently asked questions when it comes to the lost continent of Atlantis. Many scientists have many theories on where Atlantis could be. Some ideas that are raised, are; Atlantis is in the South China see. Atlantis is in the Bahamas, and Atlantis is in the Atlantic Ocean. These are just a few ideas on where Atlantis could be, There are many other theories on Atlantis’s location.
Many scientists believe that the lost city of Atlantis is in the South China See. They believe Atlantis was once here but was destroyed by one of two theories. One theory scientists have is that Atlantis was destroyed by an asteroid crashing into the earth. The other theory is Atlantis was built on or by a volcano. When this volcano erupted it buried Atlantis in think molten lava. This is an interesting theory but I don’t believe there is enough evidence to prove this theory.
Another idea on where Atlantis could be is somewhere in the islands of Bimmini Bahamas. Scientists believe that Atlantis was built on a volcano and when it erupted it buried Atlantis in the Bahamas. If this is the case, it raises another interesting subject. If Atlantis were in the Bahamas, that would make Atlantis inside the Bermuda triangle. This brings up other ideas such as; maybe Atlantis disappeared like other things that have gone through the triangle. There are a few things of evidence that may prove Atlantis was once here. From in the air you can see roads under the water that lead to a spot that is covered in old volcanic ash. Scrapings from the ash tell us that the volcano erupted the same time Atlantis was supposed to have existed. They have also found many artifacts in this area.
Hume and Descartes on The Theory of Ideas David Hume and Rene Descartes are philosophers with opposing views about the origination of ideas. Descartes believed there were three types of ideas which are, innate, adventitious and those from imagination. He stated since he exists and his idea of what a perfect being is, such as God, then God exists. Hume, on the other had, believed ideas came only ...
I think the most famous theory of where and how Atlantis was destroyed, is the one by Plato. Plato believes that Atlantis is in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1200-km SW of Europe. Plato writes about Atlantis being found through the Pillars of Hercules. Plato believes if you go through the Pillars of Hercules and continue straight out you would have found Atlantis. He believes that Atlantis was a continent made up of many islands. He also writes, that Atlantis was destroyed by a nuclear blast. Scientists believe this could have been a volcanic or an asteroid. Scientists also believe that the Pillars of Hercules that Plato talks about are really the Pillars of “Gibraltar,” located in at the end of the Gibraltar strait.
I think that the three theories I discussed were all great ideas. But, I think there just isn’t enough evidence to prove any of them and if there were we wouldn’t be talking about this. If I had to choose a theory that sounded the best and was the most believable it would have to be the one in the Bahamas. It’s more of a practical idea, and the fact they have found artifacts and what looks like to be roads under the water simply gives more proof than any other theory I mentioned. Now, there are many other theories out there and for all we know none of them could be right. Maybe someday we will find the real truth of Atlantis.
