I am not always such a grumpy old sod.
I think there may be some confusion in this paragraph between the words Scientist and Engineer. The man's son came up with an engineering solution, not a scientific truth.
One theory put forward is that all of Plato's figures should be divided by 10 - thus making Thera a good candidate. As Plato was writing about events that occured many centuries previous (and which had been recounted only orally) the possibility of exaggeration in the continual re-telling of the myth cannot be discounted.You see, I like to work with facts or, at least, theories with a high degree of scientific validity. I have seen neither in any of Mr Margiani's post so far.

Im going to write plausible book about the sunken kingdom!
Wow! four pages and this thread is still going - lol.
Is it possible to zoom in further, so we can see the cities?
I'm looking for that all my life!
