Atlantis Found? Film Highlights Professor’s Efforts to Locate Fabled Lost City

Quote
ScienceDaily (Mar. 12, 2011) — Could the fabled lost city of Atlantis have been located? Using satellite photography, ground-penetrating radar and underwater technology, a team of experts (led by University of Hartford professor and archaeologist Richard Freund) has been surveying marshlands in Spain to look for proof of the ancient city. If the team can match geological formations to Plato's descriptions and date artifacts back to the time of Atlantis, we may be closer to solving one of the world's greatest mysteries.]Atlantis Found?

Even if this isn't Atlantis this looks like an interesting find.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

They don't sound too impartial, still one has to think about one's research grant these days.

To me, this is just like the search for Noah's ark.  Both are based upon mythological literature.  Both are passionate quests by some people.  This guy uses Plato's writing the same way Noah's ark searchers use the Bible.  They look for clues in the writing that match things in the real world, hoping it will take them closer.
