Atlantis a place that Plato described as a Utopia has been one of historys most intriguing mysteries Did the island of Atlantis really disappear into the Atlantic Ocean without a trace Researchers have been trying to figure out what happened to Atlantis or even if it really existed for years According to legend the rich island of Atlantis somehow suddenly disappeared without warning The main theory as to why the island disappeared is the belief that if the island truly existed volcanic activity may have caused earthquakes that in turn caused the island to sink into the ocean No one knows for sure what happened to Atlantis but it is known that so far there is no real sign of the islands existence anywhere on the planet The story of Atlantis started with great Greek philosopher Plato Plato spoke of Atlantis in his stories Critias and Timaeus In Platos story Timaeus Solon a lawgiver of Athens described the island He had traveled to the district of Sais a part of Egypt where he met some of the priests there He and these priests were talking about historical events when Solon realized that he didnt really know much about anything significant One of the priests told the story of Atlantis to Solon He said there was a place that used to exist where the noblest race of men lived and from which Solon was a descendent The priest went into detail about how 9000 years earlier there was the Island of Atlantis which was a strong empire It was bigger than Libya and Asia combined This place had a lot of military skill and courage It was dominant over all Mediterranean lands with the exception of Athens All was going good for Atlantis Unfortunately one night there was a series o f violent floods and earthquakes and in one day the entire island and all of its inhabitants went to the bottom of the ocean
