Even starting from the consideration that you should never stop looking for the truth must be acknowledged that it is difficult to write about Atlantis because of the multitude of these works and also because this continent is no more. And since we are always atlantologi "pinched" archaeological evidence on the factor I want to concentrate this research on its own proofs of the continents have disappeared: there is archaeological evidence (or a valid proof) the existence of Atlantis? And what are the sources? If Atlantis existed there should even be the remains somewhere.Let's see what they have studied archaeologists, geologists, anthropologists, historians and all those who have dealt with Atlantis.
Other continents have sunk into the depths to which I will consider even Lemuria, a continent has been little studied but what was written on it is really interesting, and Mu, a continent of crucial importance.
Atlantis: the historical and archaeological evidence
The first historical evidence of Atlantis is the one given in Plato's Critias and Timaeus, handed down by his uncle Solon.
Before that narrow which is called the Pillars of Hercules, there was an island. And the island was larger than Libya and Asia together, and it could go to other islands and from these to the mainland opposite. In later times it is [...] [...], successive earthquakes and cataclysms overtime, in the space of a day and a bad night all in [...] mass sank beneath the earth, and the island Atlantis similarly swallowed by the sea disappeared. [...] Since there were so many terrible disasters in these nine thousand years .
Occurred terrible earthquakes and floods, after one day and one night a terrible [...] the sinking island of Atlantis disappeared into the sea .
Some scholars have wondered what this testimony is reliable.
It 'possible that Plato made it all up or has altered some details?
Let's see what they think about the scholars. Peter James and Nick Thorpe, author of Lost Lands (1999), argue that the Atlantic there is archaeological evidence of this continent. Aristotle himself, who laid the foundations of rational thought, he never believed in this legend.
In turn, Tony Maniscalco, author of The survivors of Atlantis  (2008), partly by not excluding evidence of Plato in the Timaeus and Critias that there may be geographical errors, leading to the theory that Atlantis is in Algeria, beneath the desert sands.
Plato wrote that the Atlanteans were the most advanced of our race, and already we find evidence in the ancient Hellenic tradition of mentioning the ancient advanced civilizations, then disappeared. Beyond the official science have been made many discoveries and do not know where to put.
The Aztecs claimed to come from a place called Aztlan (Atlantis that is).The prefix atl means water in Mexican language and found in many names: Quetzalcoatl, Chichèn Iztlan (which in Mayan language means saved from the waters).
The Toltecs of Mexico, in turn, support to come from Aztlan.
There are many intellectuals who have accepted the idea of a lost continent, such as Plutarch, who called Saturnia. Diodorus Siculus said that the Phoenicians discovered a large island in the Atlantic Ocean beyond the Pillars of Hercules, which came after a few days starting from the African coast. It seems that Atlantis, before it became an island following the disaster suffered (including the flood was the last) was a vast continent that included the current America. Not by chance it says that the Phoenicians were among the first people to know America before Columbus.
Returning to the lost continent, a Proco was told by others that there is a continent called Atlantis own. The Roman historian Timogeno asserts that the Gauls have a tradition of Atlantis.
Scott Elliot, referring to the text of Baldwin Ancien America, tells us that certain documents found in Central America (ie Mexico, Guatemala, where people were allocated as Maya and Aztecs) show that the American continent extended far to the ocean off Atlantic and that this area was destroyed by various disasters , the most important is remembered as a great flood and dates back to 12,000 years ago.
We can compare this theory with a legend common among the Celts, who claim that part of Great Britain extended itself over the Atlantic Ocean.
Are not negligible, in my opinion, even the phenomena that occur in the triangle of Bermuda, which seem to depend on a black pyramid that gives off a lot of energy.
Regarding geology, Roberto Pinotti in Atlantis (2001) takes into account a number of interesting geological features . Pinon writes:
According to Plato Atlantis was a mountainous country. Consequently in the Atlantic Ocean should be a wide mountainous area surrounded by water. And indeed shipments Oceanology of the nineteenth and twentieth century have established with certainty the existence of a gigantic mountain system that extends from one to another via the Arctic Circle near the middle of the Atlantic. 
I personally think that there are witnesses likely to believe that Atlantis was in the Atlantic Ocean or that there was actually a continent. It should not be excluded that also were found the remains of Atlantis nell'Algeria and Greece but has to consider that these lands may have been colonized from the Atlanteans who has been handed down as they had conquered many territories, including Egypt. So it could also be that Algeria and Greece, as well as Egypt, have been the colonies and not a real part of the continent itself.
In Tibet there is a book belonging to the ancient priestly caste and found only at the beginning of 900: The rooms of Dzyan. This book, author unknown, describes the different ages of man and humanity among the various human races also mentions the Atlantean race. It is one of the basic texts of the Theosophical Society and we derived the work The Secret Doctrine of HP Blavatsky. Blavatsky was the same in the world to see the text found in Tibet.
The Atlantean civilization as well as our race (called a race distance), has followed a path of evolution-involution. In the involutive phase experiments were carried out on humans and animals . Before the race there was the Atlantean race lemur  a race that was experimental, that is formed by a series of animal-human experiments. Let me suggest a comparison between this theory on racial lemur and what is stated in the Popol Vuh , the sacred book of the Maya-Quiche people. The Popol Vuh contains, in addition to the flood story, the story of the creation of wooden dummies, created as human experiments. These mannequins were created before the clay layers and then, because the clay is ruined, with the wood. These dummies, however, were bad, heartless and began to feed on animals and never did not honor the gods, until the animals devoured them to avenge themselves  and was sent a flood to punish them. It is pure coincidence or of cloning? Or is it something really happened? The fact remains that the question of feeding the animals, considered almost as an original sin that a man condemned to suffering, is also mentioned in the text of the History of Lemuria submerged Scott Elliot (1997), in which the author writes that ' antagonism between men and animals was the first to develop .
Returning to the archaeological evidence, the geologist and archaeologist Angelo Python found in Sierra Leone has a particular type of blue stone, called Skystone. This stone has a particular conformation and is located near statues of unknown origin, the population of misshapen gnomes Kiui angerli believed to have fallen. The stone was taken for laboratory testing and found a strange composition, made of calcite, broad, Portland, artificially colored. It is believed that may have been used by Atlantis for the construction of buildings, not by chance that the Atlanteans used special stones for the construction of their buildings, as well as silver and gold .
In spite of those who argue that the archaeological remains of Atlantis are not there, it can be said that the remains are there and how, especially in the area of Cuba that seems to coincide with the location of the capital:
A few dozen miles off the coast of Florida, in the area of coral reefs of the Bahamas, in 1968, were discovered beneath the surface of the sea long walls or roads, consisting of megaliths, assembled by the same technique in all these interlocking the world. Besides that, there are megalithic stone circles the same as those found anywhere in the world, coming to be so great a part of the complex collapsed into the ocean following a disaster, perhaps complex, part of Atlantis. In fact, before the Cuban Guanahacabibes Peninsula were discovered in an area of 20 square kilometers of ocean floor, the huge structures that form a grid city that stands on the esplanade of white sand, with its walls at right angles andconnecting roads between the buildings.
However, radar detectors and several explorations have revealed the presence of submerged remains of great interest near the Cuban coast, even in that area as if there had been a capital of an ancient empire. 
The most important test, however, is given by the discovery of underwater pyramids. In Archaeology of Luc Bürgin mystery, we find the testimony of many findings that are not disclosed to prevent the official from archeology to question everything that we previously thought. Is there anyway to say that today is increasing more and more educated people who are not satisfied with a purely academic knowledge or agreement and who are approaching archeology also "forbidden" and a new way of looking at the history of ' humanity without even "shocked" that much: humanity is opening their minds to new horizons.
Bürgin, as well as to disseminate the findings in the vicinity of Okinawa (which I'll discuss in the section on Mu) also tells us the secret of Rock Lake, a lake that is located east of Madison (Wisconsin) and that on the bottom of the pyramid construction and stone artefacts .
Atlantis and the problem of its localization
About where Atlantis, its exact location is a mystery that still remains.There are those who put in Sardinia, others in England, who in the Atlantic Ocean, some in Algeria. Atlantis would seem more a collection of land that a single island sank into the sea. From the above it is clear that the location of Atlantis is a complex problem that is highlighted as this continent has suffered many disasters, so it may have occupied territories more or less extensive, and may have conquered other territories.
First we must remember that Atlantis, according to some scholars, had seven islands that correspond to the seven stars of the Pleiades constellation in which the Atlanteans appeared to be in touch. But it is not possible to give a precise temporal location in the presence of these islands, that it is not clear whether they were present before or after the various disasters. Plato says that Atlantis sank in one day and one night but the island is covered by the greek philosopher was already the remnants of a vast continent, previously destroyed or submerged.
The dominant paradigm says Atlantis is found in the Atlantic but it seems there are compelling reasons to accept any more theories. In reality, Atlantis is not the only place so late when there is a finding must try to understand what the continent might have belonged, such as construction of Easter Island are most likely to Lemuria (and Atlantis), since the 'area of Australia was occupied by lemurs , which apparently were giants.
Most texts on Atlantis tend to endorse the argument that there was this continent in the Atlantic. Elliot Scott cites the following passage of the scholar Starkie Gardner:
Eocene period in the British Isles were part of a large island, or rather a continent that stretched in the Atlantic, it is certain that a large continental region where at present then there are the sea and Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and the Channel ; Ireland and Britain are the same top of the top higher .
Actually very high if we consider the culture of the Celts, who lived just in Ireland and in Northern France, we think that maybe the Gardner's theory is not just pure fantasy. No coincidence that the Celts themselves claimed to come from a land submerged in the Atlantic Ocean, the legendary Avalon , on which were written many books.
Elliot Scott informs us that, through investigation, it was discovered that in the middle of the Atlantic there is a veritable mountain range  - whose peaks make up the Azores, St. Paul, Ascension, the same Iceland, Saint Helena and Tristan Acunha of volcanic debris-covered and debris would come down to these American shores.
The chain in question, as I mentioned earlier citing Pinotti, is the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and consists predominantly of basaltic rocks. According to geologists seamount chain that goes back tens of millions of years ago.Prof. Geology Martinis, that takes care of Atlantis, even the traces to 135 million years ago. He, however, despite his passion for the lost continent, states that no Atlantic Ocean Atlantis and James and Thorpe also stated that there are archaeological remains of it at all. On a line facing the opposite hand scholars like Jirov and Heezen, that despite the absence (absence perhaps only apparent) of archaeological remains, do not exclude the existence of the continent. Heezen said that:
There are many elements that show that at certain times of their existence these chains came to the surface of the ocean, forming large areas of land, valued for their vastness, like real world. Evidently some of these chains has existed on the surface even in the post glacial period. Beyond any tradition, therefore, the existence of these plateaus and mountain chains sank in fact leads to thinking of the previous existence of lost continents: Atlantic Atlantis, Lemuria and Mu in the Pacific Ocean in the Pacific .
Many scholars are now of the opinion that the oceanic water masses moving a variety of causes, some flooding and making emergence of new lands. All this would not exclude that there was a continent in a remote period of humanity, and today many scholars who support this theory: Colin Wilson, Charles Hapgood, Graham Hancock are just a few names of scholars who have dedicated themselves to ' argument seriously. The problem remains submerged hard to find and to date, and the excessive amount of time elapsed between the end of Atlantean civilization and our race, have led most scholars to abandon the study of Atlantis. Indeed, the difficulties are not just a few. An attempt to invoke theories more or less valid, based on studies or research in the field.
Another point on which many scholars have paused to reflect is the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. It is argued that in this area there is a powerful energy that "suck" planes and ships passing by. It is believed that this powerful force is caused by a pyramid of Atlantis that continues to channel its energy by causing mysterious deep ocean currents.
One of the most popular theory argues that the Egyptian pyramids and the Egyptian civilization in general belong to the Atlantean tradition and therefore that Egypt may have been the real Atlantis. On that not everyone agrees.
When you highlight similarities between different parts of the world, before considering the continent of Atlantis to be extended for who knows how many miles need to be reminded that the Atlanteans had also colonized many countries. Egypt certainly was not part of Atlantis, but it is likely that the Atlanteans have visited or settled there and built some works as the Sphinx.
James Thorpe was argued that the affinity suggested by many atlantologi according to which the Egyptian pyramids and the American (Mayan) are by the same people are faltering because the dates are different: those are the 2700 BC Egyptian, the Americans arrive until 1487 AD and the oldest American pyramids were created in the early centuries before Christ. So if we want to build on the pyramids themselves should exclude a common origin, however, you should not reject the hypothesis that these two peoples may have had intercourse. The Egyptians may have inherited from the Atlantean knowledge to build the pyramids.
It is not clear, however, the origin of the Sphinx. The Sphinx of Giza is carved in the rock. The dating of the official dates from the period of the pharaoh Chephren (2500 BC, the two pyramids) but it turned out that this is at least ten thousand years old, a time when North Africa there was a lot more rainy climate of 'present. The Sphinx has been traced back to the period of Chephren because there is a plaque dedicated to him, but the monument is too eroded and, given the sandy surface of Egypt and given also that the climate in Egypt in the last five to six thousand years has been very Dry, it's too strange that the erosion is so strong, if not back-dating the origin. So the geologist Robert Schoch, a geophysicist Thomas L. Dobecky and a team composed of an oceanographer, an architect and two other geologists have discovered that the erosion was due to water, then the rain in North Africa than ten thousand years ago. Who built the Sphinx more than ten thousand years ago?
Scott Elliot tells us that 80,000 years ago there were already the first two Great Pyramids (Khafre and Menkaure, so Scott Elliot the two pyramids are far prior to the time when the official puts science) and they would have survived a disaster , which occurred precisely at the time and after which it was built the temple of Karnak. However Elliot Scott believes that a group of Atlantis (specifically a Lodge White started) migrated to Egypt 400,000 years ago when this area was still sparsely populated and isolated . Do not forget, then, that Egyptians and Americans had similar habits so the idea of a settlement or otherwise of a migration is quite likely. However, it remains to understand why the Egyptian civilization started only around 3000 BC C. if the Sphinx was built already in '8000 BCPerhaps the Egyptian people was already in place, or maybe it was a nation, different from what we know as Egypt.
The mysteries of Spain and map Hecataeus
A language for linguists inexplicable is the language of the Basques. The Basques, despite being half way between Spain and France speak a particular language that is very similar to the Mayan language.  No one has ever managed to figure out what type of source has this language.
Another interesting site is that we find in Spain Tartessus , an ancient city of which we find mention in the ancient Bible, specifically in the First Book of Kings (10:22). In the Bible we read that King Solomon traded Tartessus and that this city was in the vicinity of the river Guadalquivir. It would be a very wealthy city, and cultured with a language that does not belong to any kind of strain Iberian language:
From the linguistic research seems likely that it speaks a particular language, the so-called Tartessus of which there is literary track. The Tartessus, surprisingly, is not related to Basque, with the Iberian and Lusitanian (the latter certainly Indo-European), which are the other language families of Iberia before the arrival of the Celts. Is not certain to make it a separate language family or groped to insert into existing language families. The Tartessus in fact shows some similarity with the Anatolian Indo-European languages (such as Hittite and Luwian) as well as the Etruscan and this would strengthen the argument, at the time proposed that the founders of the city were called Teres of the Peoples of the Sea .
On page. 58 of Atlantis and the mystery of vanished continents (2006) details the map image Hecataeus  (fifth century BC), and where the city of Tartessus south of the Iberian Peninsula . Hecataeus of originGreek, was a writer of historical and geographical texts. Historians believe that Tartessus has been destroyed by the Carthaginians in 500. B.C. but there are also those who believe that this city has sunk beneath the sea level . In reality, what strikes me most is the map of Hecataeus reporting, in the far north of Europe (Europe on the map also includes parts of Asia) the population Hyperborean. In the fifth century BC you know the population Hyperborean, of which there are traces in The Rooms Dzyan . This ancient text, above, believes that the Hyperborean race occupy precisely the North Asia (hence its location on map is accurate because it is believed that the population was exactly the Hyperborean north) and it would be the second human race appeared on Earth. The ancient Greeks called the Hyperborean god Apollo and he claimed that he went every year in North Asia . Iperborea means beyond the Boreas.Hyperborean race, according to the theosophical school, was not a physical race, consisting of only power. Even the Atlanteans, at least in the first phase of their lives, consisted primarily of energy. You can not support but how much time passes between breeds (such as between lemur el'atlantidea) because when we talk about everything that happened before the Flood must take into account a very important factor: the timewas inserted into a different paradigm, that was not necessarily linear as ours. Science itself recognizes that time is a product of our consciousness, just think of when we dream, a dream we long to do so in a few minutes of sleep. Even the conscience of man was different. And if the Hyperborean race was the second race-rooms of Dzyan speak of five races, including the Hyperborean race is the second, the lemur is the third, fourth, and the Atlantean our fifth, the first race would be a race of divine beings who dwell in the imperishable sacred land supervised by the North Star, what the Hindus call Svita dvipa-Hyperborean we think that these were certainly very different from us.
Lemuria: a laboratory or an advanced civilization of mankind?
The Commentaries to the rooms of Dzyan tell which was the third continent of Lemuria. This name was coined by M.P.L. Sclater on the basis of zoological research: finding specimens of monkeys called lemurs in Madagascar decided to call Lemuria continent but there are also those who argue that the term Lemuria lemurs may be associated with the term meant in ancient Roman ghosts.
It is generally believed that Lemuria and Atlantis is prior to that was an advanced civilization. This continent started to arrive from Madagascar to Australia. In fact, Madagascar is known for the diversity of flora and fauna than the rest of Africa. According to the theories of Elliot Scott lemur population was far advanced, indeed, was not even very human, but the lemurs were equipped with a certain culture.
Lemuria could be an island on which they experienced men, not by chance that some scholars believe that primitive men are "the failed experiment" in order to create a human race and that we are not apes evolved, but the monkeys would Human poorly managed or convoluted.
Scott Elliot tells us that the lemurs were giants, and even the Atlanteans were.
Most likely, then, were the lemurs to build the statues of Easter Island, and if it did mean that despite the appearance to some animal intelligence and ability possessed by these individuals . Lemuria sunk, but then it would be a part of it was saved and this part contributed to the formation of Mu.The existence of Lemuria was generally accepted:
Since the theory of Lemuria gained some importance, began to appear in the work of other scientists such as Ernst Haeckel, a German taxonomist who proposed Lemuria as an explanation all'''anello missing. "Fossils of this would not have been able to find it buried Bottom of the Sea.
The Lemuria theory disappeared with the appearance of the theory of plate tectonics .
The hypothesis of the existence of Mu was not the same resonance. In fact, in the Commentaries to the rooms of Dzyan, happens to Lemuria Atlantis, not Mu. This may be due to the fact that the two continents were contemporaries. In fact, when Atlantis was in the Atlantic, Mu was in the Pacific but strangely no one mentions it.
The mother continent: Mu
The myth of Mu was founded in the late '800 with Colonel Churchward (1852-1936), British-born. The colonel left his career, he went to India in 1870 and became friends with an Indian priest. Both were interested in archeology, so the priest showed Churchward of ancient tablets that spoke of the origin of humanity. The priest said the tablets were sacred because they were written by Naacal, or the "Holy brothers" who came from a mother in mainland Southeast Asia.
The priest and the former colonel translated all the boards and discovered that they spoke of the creation of the world and the origin of man, who would appear for the first time on the continent Mu. After a few years, the professor and researcher William Niven discovered in Mexico, during the excavation, 2,600 tablets which referred to Mu.
So Churchward, after having translated the tablets and have traveled to find other valid elements to endorse his assumption of the existence of this continent, drew the following story of Mu.
Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean and was inhabited by several tribes ruled by a king called Ra-Mu. Lost in the Land (1999) states that the name comes from Queen Moo Mu  that it was the Queen of Atlantis, but this name may have other origins. The kingdom of Mu was called Empire of the Sun because its inhabitants (the "Muan") worship a deity who was named Sun Ra, as no one could refer to it by its true name. Mu was populated predominantly by white (and this would explain why in America there are many depictions of white people, even before the discovery of America). I took Muan science, religion and trade around the world. Mu also had colonies including Mayax empire in America, the Uighur empire in Central Asia and Eastern Europe and the Naga kingdom in South Asia [33.Mu was the first disaster caused by volcanoes and tsunamis, during the heyday. This disaster also interested in the southern part of the continent.Later, the continent finally sank 13,000 years ago. Survived only a few people.
First and then sank Atlantis Mu (the latter sank 12,000 years ago) .
The continent of Mu appears to be the most important of all because it is "the mother continent" and was contemporary with Atlantis: Atlantis reigned over the same period in the Atlantic and Pacific and Mu were both highly advanced civilization that communicated. However, Mu is not known as it is Atlantis, perhaps because there have been philosophers (like Plato's Atlantis of which we spoke) to hand down its existence and, oddly, there is not even mentioned in The Dzyan rooms.
However, for Mu archaeological remains valid and we believe this is crucial. In 1997 near the island of Yonaguni (Okinawa Area) in the South China Sea, between Formosa and Japan, have been discovered archaeological remains very important monuments including terraced, belonging to a civilization plunged into the Pacific that you do not havetrace in official history books. The report of this discovery is found in submerged Civilization (2002) by Graham Hancock
The remains belonged to a period ranging from 4000 to 8000 years ago, but some scholars believe that date back to 15,000 years ago.
The existence of a civilization so advanced would also explain why China since ancient times, was so advanced from the technological point of view. The first Chinese in early times, even had a seismograph, built with a vase and a lever system. The Chinese invented paper, had large medical knowledge, they invented the compass ... all in very ancient times, is no coincidence that the Chinese have always amazed by their clever inventions, and today we can assume that such knowledge may derive from the culture of Mu.
The detailed account of this discovery is submerged in Civilization (2002) by G. Hancock, who accompanied the search for photographs of these remains. Geologists who are immersed in Yonaguni are three: Masaaki Kimura, Robert Schoch (already mentioned above for research on the Sphinx) and Wolf Wichmann and as far as I know the author is the only geologists who have come down to those depths. These three geologists do not have a shared view. Kimura and his students made hundreds of dives and argues that they are doubtless works of human origin and also claims that some items were found in holes made by tools like awls. The description of what he saw Kimura (a kind of path paved with stones linking the main areas of the structure, traces of excavations suggest repairs , etc..) Clearly suggest that they are the remains of a civilization. The same Kimura believes that these remains belonged to an advanced civilization.
Schoch (which is located along the same author) but has not taken a clear position on the nature of this underwater monument, it is argued that this could be a natural monument is that it could be of human origin with the purpose as it is astronomical located on the Tropic of Cancer.
The geologist Wichmann has made three expeditions and argues that it is a work of nature. Kimura, however, believes that even if it should be of natural origin, this type of topography would be too difficult to explain.
The only archaeologist who has dived at Yonaguni Sundaresh that is considered a monument of human origin .
Most likely, these scientists have found remains of the ancient Mu. No coincidence that in China there are many terraced pyramids .
With regard to the history of this lost continent in the Pacific and other evidence showing its existence, Domenico Pasquariello, author of Great investigation on Atlantis writes:
The civilization of Mu, as well as dominate Asia, extended his dominion in America. In fact there are no representations, legends and traditions of ancient Mesoamerican peoples who speak of white men with long beards and wide clothes, also equipped with advanced technology, who came to America from the area of Asia / Oceania (where Mu once was) to teach the natives the arts and sciences.
Maya also stems show a migration from a land in the Pacific to South America and is very likely it refers to the land of Mu, which was located west of South America.
Scholars such as the geologist William Niven have identified the sites of Mexican Haluepantla Texcoco and the remains of old towns of 50,000 years. These three cities that have built upon each other from their remains and evidence of a deluge of volcanic eruptions. On these sites were found countless statues depicting men with the features so typical of South Asia and East. These places should be the main sites where they settled men from Mu, sites that are buried at an average of nine meters below the ground in Mexico.
In 1997 were discovered in the waters of Yonaguni ruins of an ancient civilization disappeared, almost certainly the ancient civilization of Mu.They are the remains of a civilization that lived between 15 000 and 10 000 BC and are placed at 25 meters below sea level off the coast of the South China Sea, the strait connecting the Japanese in Formosa. These are very large buildings: the main one is the size of the pyramid of Cheops, and is similar to the great stepped pyramids of the Middle East (Ziggurat). Overall, the ruins are tied to those pre-Columbian and Egyptian ones.
For Aguni (north of Yonaguni) there is a gigantic wall, while Kerama there is a circular building, all connected by a road.
The megaliths and construction of huge monolithic blocks and interlocking with the technique are widespread in South America, Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Japan, in Central America, England, France, etc.. As if had been inherited from a civilization antediluvian ....
