There have been over 25,000 articles written about the Canary Islands are the result over a lost continant called Atlantis. Its a subject thats been touched by Aristotle and also Greek and Egyptian phylosophers. It is said that the continent emerged from the sea and then submerged leaving the Canaries as reminence. in just one day and night the island of Atlantis was destroyed, covered by sea and disappeared. Atlantis was said to be bigger than Africa.
The legend of Atlantis is a story about a moral, spiritual people who lived in a highly advanced, utopian civilization. But they became greedy, petty, and “morally bankrupt,” and the gods “became angry because the people had lost their way and turned to immoral pursuits,” Orser says.
As punishment, he says, the gods sent “one terrible night of fire and earthquakes” that caused Atlantis to sink into the sea.
Few, if any, scientists think Atlantis actually existed.
