I'm with you fiercehunter. Anyway, I like the Atlantean idea and have read Donnelley's book. Yes, I've read all the books and seen the films arguing that Santorini was Atlantis, that it erupted in about 1300 B.C., causing a Mediterreanean tsunami whose leading withdrawal accounts for the parting of the 'reed sea' that allowed the Jews to escape Egypt. That's a good story also.
But there is no way to mistake Santorini for Plato's description of Atlantis. More recent books and ideas are that Atlantis, after it's earthquake, migrated south and is not the continent under the 7 mile thick South Pole Ice cap.
I like this idea also.
