This is simply an awesome, and very convincing search about the fabled continent of Atlantis. I had read a few other books on the subject before, but I find that only this one is convincing and well documented. The author was a nuclear physicist and geologist (thus a scientist) who once wanted to prove that Atlantis was but a myth. However, the more he searched, the more he discovered something incredible: Atlantis actually existed, and was located on the Indonesia continent before the flood. This flood occurred 11,600 years ago when the last ice age ended, and the immense polar caps melted, rising the ocean levels by eventually 150 meters (500 feet). As such, what was the lush tropical continent of Indonesia eventually became but an archipelago. Locating Atlantis there matches exactly the description Plato gave about it (including the presence of elephants), which is not the case of every other place formerly proposed. The author also tells that for the antique Greeks, the Atlantic ocean was not what we refer today under this name, but all the water that apparently surrounded the "known world" of that time. Hence it has not to be an island in the Atlantic...
