(ORDO NEWS) — Atlantis is a legendary continent, according to ancient historians, located in the ocean behind the Pillars of Hercules. Here it means that it was presumably located in the Atlantic Ocean, and not far from the Iberian Peninsula. Famous personalities of antiquity, such as Solon, Plato, Herodotus, Diodorus Siculus, Posidonius, Strabo and Proclus, mentioned the mysterious continent.
It is also noteworthy that Atlantis was seriously considered by a very serious Russian scientist named Elena Petrovna Blavatskaya. According to Plato, Atlantis reached its heyday in 9000 BC, and after that it sank due to a cataclysm. Official science does not recognize the existence of the most ancient continent.
In truth, there is no exploration of Atlantis at all. Serious scientific communities do not invest a single drop of resources in this matter. So the study of the ancient hypothetical continents remains with hoaxers and esotericists. But if the scientific world community wanted to reveal an ancient secret, then it is likely that they could discover something. Few people descended to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, and if they did, it was only within the coasts.
There is a possibility that Atlantis could exist within the Azores, but this, again, has not been proven. Apart from the Phoenician treasures, not a single artifact was found there. It is also worth noting the mysterious culture of the aborigines of the Canary Islands, who built pyramids in the image of the American Indians, but outwardly looked more like Europeans. In addition, the culture of the inhabitants of the Canary Islands has not yet been properly studied. Some scholars believe that the mysterious Guanches (they are the aborigines of the Canary Islands) may be the heirs of Atlantis.
Recently, science has focused entirely on space or weapons. The authorities of many states spend fabulous sums on military research and the study of hypothetical colonies for the Earth. But many people forget that our home planet has not yet been explored at all. The mystery of Atlantis alone raises many questions. If we attribute this case to science fiction, then not everything fits together. Almost all ancient historians and philosophers, who lived at different times, mentioned Atlantis.
In ancient times, fiction as a science did not exist, and people were inclined to describe what it really is. Therefore, it is possible that Atlantis really existed in reality. But in the near future, modern science is unlikely to go to the creation of serious expeditions on this topic.
