Twelve Tribes of Israel
The Twelve Tribes of Israel and Atlantis is a combination that would not normally leap to mind. However, some have attempted to justify such a linkage in spite of the contradiction between Plato’s story and the details of this fringe theory.
This alleged relationship between Atlantis and Israel points out that the Biblical patriarch Jacob who had twelve sons, excluded two of them, Levi and Simeon. Jacob is then presented as having been Poseidon with the ten remaining sons ruling Atlantis. One of Jacob’s sons, Gad, is assumed to have been Gadeirus, one of the ten sons of Poseidon. After that no further parallels are offered to connect Jacob’s other sons with the remainder of Poseidon’s offspring.
