Scholars the world over have repeatedly declared that ancient sources describing Atlantis are plentiful, “but before Plato–nothing”. They make such a declaration because of several reasons:
- they disregard every record in which Atlantis is not mentioned by name;
- they tend to disregard records which utilize a variant spelling of Atlantis;
- they imply (whether consciously or unconsciously) that we possess all the ancient manuscripts ever written between the time of Solon and Plato;
- they seem to be unfamiliar with the Sanskrit writings of India–apparently forgetting that those Sanskrit speakers originated in Central Europe.
