Greek Mythology

Greek Mythology permeates Plato’s Atlantis story as it does virtually all Classical Greek writing. The challenge presented by Plato’s narrative is how to accurately separate the historical from the mythological. Carlos Parada has an interesting website(a), for those wishing to pursue a study of it, and also includes a few interesting pages on Atlantis. Another site worth a look is

The former chairman of the Texas Board of Education, Robert Bowie Johnson Jnr. contends that Greek mythology is a distorted version of biblical tales(e)(f).

Some commentators have remarked how many of the Greek (and Roman) gods morphed into Christian saints. Furthermore, after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Western Church also adopted many of the trappings of imperial Rome(d).

Athene *

Athene is the goddess that gave her name to the Greek capital. Interestingly the pre-Hellenic people of Greece, the Pelasgians, believed that the goddess Athene or Athena was born beside Lake Tritonis in Libya. The North Africans had a legendary queen called Tin Hanan that Dr. Chaouat identified with Athene [(A)tin-ha(nan)]. De Prorok claimed to have found her tomb.

Furthermore, the Egyptian city of Sais where Solon first learned of Atlantis had it principal temple dedicated to the goddess Neith whom the Egyptian priests identified with Athene.

Both are similarly represented, Neith with a bow and arrow, Athene with a shield and spear. Neith is also associated with the Libyan goddess Tanit.

Some commentators have sought to link Athene with the Egyptian god Aten, while one website(a)(b)(e) has claimed that Athene was the biblical Eve. The latter idea is also expressed on the Answers in Genesis website(c).

Robert Bowie Johnson jr the American author of a number of books on Greek Mythology has traced the origins of Athena back to antediluvian times when she was known as Naamah the wife of Ham(d). Unfortunately, there is more than one Naamah mentioned in the Bible, which has led to some confusion among scholars.
