For a long time, Atlantis has been this mystical island but “true” scientist tells us that it is just fiction. They claim that there have not been any continents between Europe and America and that there is no evidence. That is certainly true. But Atlantis was not a continent; it was a sea nation consisting of several islands. And it is clearly visible on Google Maps today; it is part of Portugal, and it is exactly where Plato tells us it is. It is hidden in plain sight!
This correctly translated Plato’s original text is:
“….the (Atlantic) Ocean that was at that time navigable; and it was possible for travellers of that time to cross from it (from Atlantis) to the other islands and from the(se) islands to the whole of the continent over against them which (islands and continent together) encompasses the veritable ocean … for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say ‘the Pillars of Heracles’ [Straits of Gibraltar] (across the Atlantic Ocean) there lay an island (a continent, as he called it earlier) which was larger than Libya and Asia together” (Source).
When you go west of Gibraltar, about 850 miles, you arrive at a group of nine volcanic Islands called the Azores. The geological foundations of this area are very interesting as the Azores is located above an active triple junction between three of the world’s large tectonic plates the North American Plate, the Eurasian Plate and the African Plate. There are underwater volcanoes in the area and underwater mountains. There is also a recent discovery of a 20,000-year-old underwater pyramid in the Azores which has not made proper headlines.
Portuguese news reported the discovery of a very large underwater pyramid first discovered by Diocleciano Silva between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores of Portugal. According to claims, the structure is said to be perfectly squared and oriented by the cardinal points. Current estimates obtained using GPS digital technology put the height at 60 meters with a base of 8000 square meters. “The pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal points,” Silva told Diário Insular, the local newspaper.
Atlantis was a civilisation that built pyramids. And the timing would be correct as the destruction of Atlantis was about 14.000 years ago, although Plato speaks about 9000 years (this would be then about 12.000 years today). Scientists say this area has been underwater for about 20.000 years, but even they say it has been above the water earlier.
Even the Portuguese government agencies call the Azores “the remains of Atlantis”. Also, an American congressman Ignatius L. Donnelly published a book called “Atlantis: The Antediluvian World” in 1882. In this book, he suggests that the hilly Azores islands were actually the mountaintops of Atlantis.
In addition, a modern-day scholar, Dr David Zink (1927-2008), believed Atlantis was located in The Azores.
Beyond geography, archaeological evidence also supports this theory. Several artefacts – including coins and sculptures – were discovered in 1427 in The Azores, suggesting an advanced civilization with its own language. Rock art was also discovered there, and more modern scholars believe there may be subterranean temples.
So the Azores islands are the mountains of Atlantis. This is where the mythical civilisation lived. It all makes sense. Even the destruction can be easily explained by the extremely fragile location between the tectonic plates and due to large amounts of volcanic activity.
Here is an ancient map of Atlantis. And below is a map of what remains today in exactly the same location. It all maps out clearly.https://www.theatlantisproject.org/azores-as-atlantis/
