Wherever Atlantis found tireless explorers! And on Canaries, and in Spain, and on the island of Santorini, and even on the shores The Caspian Sea. And recently, Italian Marco Francesco Bulloni found the island described by Plato … on our Solovki! And justified his opening on the pages of the book “Arctic Circle: opening Atlantis. ”
What did Plato write about?
As Bulloni notes, the destruction of Atlantis is represented by Plato very impressive and his words are full of drama. The philosopher talks about the devastation of the island, which took place mainly by natural reasons. Plato wrote that the island became “impassable mud, obstructing the passage of ships, “so it became completely impossible to reach the ocean. In another passage, he argued that “for the night fell as much rain as the earth could not stand, and this a stream from the sky washed away the entire land of the island, making it naked. ”

When Plato described the area around the island, also prone to devastation after the flood, he said that the soil was separated from the mountains and swam down, plunging into the sea. “As happens on small islands, compared to what happened, then, parts of what remain similar to a damaged body under the influence of an illness, therefore that all the land around that place, all that was fertile and soft, slipped away, and only the bare region remained from the whole region skeleton. ”
Then the philosopher wrote that there are visible traces of dense forests that grew on the mountains. Some of these mountains were completely deserted – so, according to Plato, “today they supply only bees with food. Moreover, the soil can no longer hold water, as before, and it flows to the sea. Sanctuaries built once close to various sources water is still visible today. ”
In all these descriptions, Plato claimed that the territory Atlantis is forever immersed in the sea, at the same time wrote about yet inhabited island, whose ruins were visible many centuries after it destruction. This confirms the hypothesis that the expression “he plunged “refers to the island that went under water, but then appeared again, or partially sunken.
Rain and tsunami
Bulloni comes to the conclusion that this is very likely the cause the destruction of Atlantis was a huge tsunami wave that hit the island, making it seem like the island is plunging under water. But from the description of Plato, it becomes obvious that after The dive island appeared again, completely devastated.
Therefore, according to the Italian researcher, those who are looking Atlantis under the sea or ocean, wrong: Plato did not say that the island has disappeared forever. He let us know that the island is still exists and can be visited.

Particular attention should be paid to the marine cataclysm in the form of rain lasting 24 hours. The philosopher wrote that rain contributed to the destruction of the island, broke it into pieces and made unstable. This means that rain was not the primary cause. destruction. Bulloni’s opinion is that there was a severe storm similar to tropical, accompanied by a long rain that happens when sudden climate change.
Obviously, during the destruction of Atlantis, the climate of the area, the former very wet, suddenly changed from very soft to very cold, which caused long and destructive rain.
If you look at the position of the Big Solovetsky Island in the middle of the White Sea, it is seen that going towards Karelia tsunami waves cannot pass it. The existence of underwater earthquakes in the White Sea area are very likely since this area is the border between the Ural and Finnish tectonic platforms. However, Bulloni is inclined to believe that trouble came from the Barents Sea.
Plato mentioned the story of Phaeton, the son of Helios, who lost control of a celestial chariot that fell to Earth and destroyed her. The Egyptian priest interpreted the myth, saying that sometimes heavenly bodies deviate from their trajectory around the Earth and fall on our planet, causing death and destruction. Maybe it’s real a riddle hidden in the words of Plato: did the Egyptian know that was the cause of the destruction of Atlantis associated with a strike from space?
Perhaps this hypothesis was strange for Plato, who understood it only as a myth of the Phaeton and for this reason did not recognize true historical fact related to the crash Atlantis. The whole story of Atlantis seemed incredible to the philosopher, and it is unlikely that he could believe the hypothesis that celestial bodies can rotate around the Earth and sometimes fall on it. Perhaps it It was too difficult or unbelievable for him.
The death of the capital on Solovki
The fact that in the past the Big Solovetsky Island suffered from the huge tidal wave that came from the Barents Sea was already proved by scientists who believed that such a cataclysm happened millions years ago. Bulloni believes that a similar disaster happened on the island at a closer time – 3300 years ago, and it was the destruction of Atlantis. Precedents of the fall of asteroids and large meteorites in the Arctic Ocean are available.

So, about halfway between Sweden and Svalbard islands at the bottom of the Barents Sea geologists have found traces of the impact meteorite – a crater with a diameter of 40 kilometers. This crater was created fireball of a meteorite with a diameter of 1 to 3 kilometers and a mass of 1 billion tons. The impact generated energy equivalent to 400,000 megatons of trinitrotoluene.
According to scientists, the blow devastated the entire territory around, causing earthquakes of 7.7-8.7 points, earth shifts layers, tsunami waves up to 10 meters high and erosive effects on coast of Greenland, the islands of Novaya Zemlya and Scandinavia.
According to Italian reconstruction, part of the giant tsunami entered to the White Sea from the “channel” connecting it with the Barents 350 kilometers and headed to the Solovetsky archipelago. Bulloni notes that the White Sea has a different depth: in the northwest -350 meters, while in the southeast, where the archipelago is located, only 16 meters.
Moreover, a few kilometers from the Bolshoi Solovetsky Islands, the depth suddenly changes – the bottom sinks to 300 meters. IN in such cases, the height of the tsunami waves increases sharply and instead of 10 can reach 60 meters. Such a super wave would completely destroy fragile earthen ring structures of the capital of Atlantis.
Waves of this type are called long because they move with high speed, rising suddenly above sea level, and last long. For anyone saved at that moment in a boat or small an ancient ship, the appearance of a long wave that swallowed the whole island, gave the wrong impression: he seemed to plunge into sea.
The death of the Great Plain in Karelia
The described disaster affected not only the coastal capital Atlantis, located somewhere on the Solovetsky Islands. Had to also subject to destruction Great Plain size 350 to 500 kilometers, described by Plato, is the Karelian plain. Giant the wave passed through the Solovetsky archipelago and then entered Karelia, whose plain then went much east of the present coast. The whole plain was very low, and therefore did not escape the tsunami no one.

The Egyptian priest who spoke of Atlantis recalled that after flood city dwellers were carried away into the sea by river flows and only the shepherds survived; that is, those who were in the mountains. He talked about the plain of Karelia, first affected by the wave, and then by a long the rain. Rivers spilled, flooding and devastating villages on the coast. People were carried away to the White Sea and fell on cliffs and impassable mud.
The mud that interfered with navigation came not only from the island, but also from the Karelian plain. The fact that the Karelian rivers and now carry out into the sea a large amount of alluvial rock, well confirmed by modern photos from space. Bulloni gives a photograph for example sediment of the Kem River, flowing across from the Bolshoi Solovetsky Island. She applied a huge amount of silt, and the depth of the sea is strong different. Here you can meet sea cliffs and large shallows only one meter deep.
And what does archeology say? There is evidence that the level Lake Onega in Karelia in the second half of the II millennium BC AD significantly rose by several meters. It is connected It was with heavy rains and the destruction of the drainage system.
Archaeologists have recorded a significant change in style petroglyphs of the population of Karelia associated with this event. For science this is evidence that people who lived in Karelia left this region after rising water levels in Lake Onega, and a new culture appeared later.
