For those interested in Atlantis: please, Please, PLEASE reread Plato
youself (Penguin Books has translation of the Timeaus and Criteaus
(horrible misspellings, my copies are at home))!! There is a LOT of
misinformation on the subject, perpetuated by Atlantologists, out there.

So, before you start poking around submarine limestone crevices formed
by well understood erosion processes, the least you can do is read the
original material and see what it *really* says...

(There's another ref, but I'll have to bring that from home to post
the proper information).
