Not supported by geology. Only supported by fringers with no knowledge of the geology of the region.

Regarding Plato and your quote:
"and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island."

Appears you're not above a little cribbing to force-fit your own personal hypothesis.
