Nah rediculous ! .... it was the Aztecs that had the trade monopoly with the Egyptians .



:)

I been talking to a chap on another forum that is desperately trying to 'prove' that . (He is an 'Atlantis believer' ) His latest is some God statue that is supposed to be 'Ganesha' as the statue has a 'trunk' (it doesnt ). I told him it was pathetic and sent him much better photos of 'Incan Elephants '.

"The Bimini Road, sometimes called the Bimini Wall, is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas. The Road consists of a 0.8 km-long northeast-southwest linear feature composed of roughly rectangular to sub rectangular limestone blocks.

from .... wait for it .... know your facts

Bimini Road is an Underwater Road Believed to be Atlantis - Know Yo Facts :D

then just down from that, the same pic, from another 'alternative site' , except this time they forgot to remove the logo from the advert ;

Atlantis is an invention of Plato. The huge problem with the Atlantis truthers are they cherry pick bits and pieces out of the context of the story.

For example, he identifies that Atlantis was an expansive Empire that lost a war against the Golden Age Athenians 9000 years prior to Solon. The source is the Egyptian City of Sais which supposedly maintained its writing from 8000 years prior to Solon. Multiple deluges wiped the world clean of civilization, except for Sais, due to the Nile.

So, there are a few things to note.
First: Sais was the political and knowledge capital of Egypt in the time of Solon, and quite old... although, not 8000 years old, it was built around 1100 BC, making it around 500 years old in the time of Solon.
Second: Egyptian writing and script is nowhere near 8000 years old. Writing dates back to 3400 BC, or about 2800 years before Solon.
Third: and perhaps most critical. It’s clear that Atlantis, as an Island with a powerful navy, mirrors the long walled Athens, and Atlantis as an Empire reflects the expansive Delphic League - also known as the Athenian Empire. The more noble spirited Athens reflects the Monarchal system which the Peloponnesian League upheld... While Athens and the Delphic came from a culture of Tyranny and Democracy - two forms of government which Plato was very negative against. The war between Athens and Atlantis seems like a hyperbolic metaphor for the Peloponesian war.


On the topic of pyramids. They’re a logical geometric shape for a civilization to construct a large building out of. Also incredibly durable, so when all other buildings crumble, it tends to be the pyramids that remain. Additionally, Egyptian pyramids were built differently from the Mesoamerican pyramids. In fact, the architecture of ancient Egypt in general is vastly different from Mesoamerica. Most importantly though: the Mayans didn’t begin building anything until after the Bronze Age collapse in Egypt... The New Kingdom of Egypt, which fell during this collapse, was a different civilization than the Old Kingdom (which fell 1200 years prior). When the first Mesoamerican pyramids were built by the Olmecs in 1000-400 BC, the Egyptian New Kingdom has collapsed, and Egypt had been conquered by the Persian Empire. When the recognizable Mayan pyramids were built, it was 250 AD to 900 AD: In this period, Egypt was a Roman province and it had joined the Palmyrine Empire in the crisis of the third century. Shortly after it had been given to the Byzantine Empire, and then conquered by the Arab Empire.

No link. Different architecture, different continent, different period of time. Unless the ancient Egyptians went there and waited over 2 thousand years, or the city of Atlantis somehow was real and waited 10,000 years without anyone knowing.
