After nearly a decade of rummaging through libraries, studying maps, reading ancient works and pouring over oceanographic data, an American researcher believes he has discovered the site of the lost civilisation on the sea floor between Cyprus and Syria, not far from Greece and Egypt, from where the legend of Atlantis originated.

My opinion is that Atlantis originated exclusively in the imagination of a certain Greek person, during an inexplicable bout of confabulation, or hallucination in what was otherwise a sober and realistic mind.

It seems that I hear about a new discovery of what could have been Atlantis once or twice a year. I really don't believe there was an Atlantis.

If he's pinpointed the location, where's the proof? If I think I'm on the brink of a monumentual discovery like this, I'd go the extra mile and get proof. Pictures, sonar graphs, undeniable proof. THEN I publish my results. Almost only counts in horshoes and hand grenades

If Atlantis existed, I think it was in the Atlantic (duh). Here maybe?:

(I've not been there in a while, so it may take some searching, it was right on top last time, about Cuba and underwater structures)
