An ancient continent that Plato said had disappeared beneath the waves 9,000 years before his time (and at least 10,000 or 11,000 years before our time)... the beautiful land, synonmous with Eden, was a place where all lived in peace and harmony.
Often discarded as myth, Atlantis is all over, as the people fled the demise of their home and took their customs with them.
There is a great deal of evidence that Atlantis existed in the area of Indonesia (remember, the Americas were not known of until Columbus, so the Greeks concidered the whole ocean stretching from the coast of Europe to the coast of Asia to be the Atlantic Ocean.)
Antarctica has been thought to be Atlantis, but it's been frozen over for at least five million years, so the chance of Atlantis being in Antarctica is pretty slim.
