Okay, so this just popped in my head. We all know the story of Atlantis and we all know the stories surrounding the Great Flood. Both Abrahamic and non-Abrahamic paths have the story in one form or another.
Now, here is what I was thinking... What if the story of the Flood and the story of Atlantis are one in the same? Many people believe that the "great flood" didn't actually cover the entire world, just the entire known world. So, what if the entire known world was Atlantis and the entire thing was wiped out by a flood or tidal wave and sank in to the ocean leaving those that survived to drift until they came to a new land mass...
It would make sense that the survivors would embellish their story and as the myth was handed down from generation to generation it would be embellished further with the beliefs of the then teller... Until it evolved to what we know today...
Thoughts?? - Sorry, my brain is bored...
Have you ever read the myth about Tantalus? It's VERY similar to the one about Atlantis and could very well be where the story came from. This is a very good book about it and the Tantalus theory is addressed about halfway down the synopsis on the page:
