When the word "Atlantis" is mentioned, everyone seems to be an expert on the subject. Most recall the name Plato, very few Solon, and that's it, unaware of all story details. No wonder Atlantis is considered a myth. But did you know there are over 36 references to Atlantis in history, not just in Greece but worldwide? By the way, that history (written) dates back to at least 4,000 BC, and its oral version goes back 12,000 years. Big game changer, isn't it? These references not only mention but describe Atlantis to great detail, even give sufficient global positioning coordinates and travel timeframes to locate it within a few miles. Here are the facts of Atlantean non-fiction, see for yourself.
