“It is time for this writer to realise that assertion is no substitute for evidence.”
I notice that you never write that about all the other so called theories.
The fact is that I do offer compelling evidence and you apparently cannot see
it nor understand it. This website’s existence will become pointless when and
if Atlantis is ever discovered, if it’s not now.

Dear Mr. Archer,
Please do not think that you have been singled out for special criticism. In fact you are in distinguished company as I have made the same comment regarding Ignatius Donnelly and John Michell. However, they have at least attempted to offer evidence in support of their contentions. You have not and do not appear to understand the meaning of the word ‘evidence’.

A geography, with place names, that matches the geography given in Genesis 2:8-14, and a believable location and cause for a Great Flood, is as good as it gets on the subject of the Antideluvian World. The recently discovered archaeological sites in the Black Sea is evidence that supports my theses. The Semitic archaeological site at Byblos, the rock paintings at Tassili N’Ajjer, the pygmy elephant bones and the Blue Grotto of Malta, and Genesis 11:2, all support my theses. All the evidence, what little of it there is, support my thesis. Just about all the other theories, Cayce, Donnelly. etc. have no evidence, just baloney, pipe dreams, and conjecture.

When you put all these matters, which you do not mention on your website, in
the form of a coherent thesis, you can expect to be taken more seriously.
You owe it to yourself to explain your views in a manner that clearly explains
the reasons for your beliefs regarding Atlantis.
My website is regularly viewed by people in over 120 countries. If you
carefully argue your case I will be more than happy to post it on my website.

It doesn’t matter how much evidence and logic is applied. This is something where the aphorism “They see yet they do not perceive, they hear yet they do not understand” applies.
