Dantas, Mario

Mario Dantas is one of the few modern voices advocating Greenland as the true home of Atlantis. He has promoted his theory on various websites(a) and submitted a paper to the 2008 Atlantis Conference in Athens. His claim is based on the superficial similarity between Athanasius Kircher‘s speculative 17th century map of Atlantis and the outline of Greenland today. His claim is based on the superficial similarity between Athanasius Kircher‘s speculative 17th century map of Atlantis and the outline of Greenland today. Furthermore he believes “that Greenland is the largest and oldest Island in the World (the southwestern part is around 4 billion years old) and we think that it was, not long ago, entirely situated in the Atlantic ocean, further south.”

He explains that originally Greenland was situated opposite the Strait of Gibraltar and that tectonics gradually brought it to its present position, ‘not long ago’. However, he does not explain how Greenland moved but Spain and northwest Africa remained where they were and still are.
