Thanks for your attention on my theory.
In about 11,600 years ago, ie the demise of Atlantis, a number of extraordinary events has been observed. Among others are:
1. the end of the Pleistocene and beginning of the Holocene geological epochs,
2. the end of the Younger Dryas, a sharp decline in temperature over most of the northern hemisphere,
3. the extinction of most of the megafauna, and the rapid demise of the North American Clovis culture,
4. the Meltwater Pulse 1B (MWP-1B), a period of either rapid or just accelerated post-glacial sea level rise,
5. a very sharp decline in the world population, which previously larger in East, Southeast and South Asia and then moved to Europe, Near East and the Caucasus thereafter (Monika Karmin et al, 2015).
The warming phase at about 11,600 years ago was very abrupt and the central Greenland temperatures increased by 7°C or more in a few decades (Johnsen et al, 1992; Grootes et al, 1993; Severinghaus et al, 1998). Most of the changes in wind-blown materials and some other climate indicators were accomplished in a few years (Alley et al, 1993; Taylor et al, 1993; Hammer et al, 1997). Broad regions of the Earth experienced almost synchronous changes over periods of 0 to 30 years (Severinghaus et al, 1998), and changes were very abrupt in at least some regions (Bard et al, 1987), eg requiring as little as 10 years off Venezuela (Hughen et al, 1996). Fluctuations in ice conductivity indicate that atmospheric circulation was reorganized extremely rapidly (Taylor et al, 1993). A similar, correlated sequence of abrupt deglacial events also occurred in the tropical and temperate North Atlantic (Bard et al, 1987; Hughen et al, 1996) and in Western Europe (von Grafenstein et al, 1999).
Up to now there is no theory and evidence that can explain with certainty and satisfying about the causes of these extraordinary events.
Plato describes that the demise of the Atlanteans and the Athenian soldiers were caused by an earthquake and a flood from the sea (tsunami). It is highly consistent with the above observations, in which those extraordinary events can accelerate earthquakes and tsunamis. The Athens were not yet successfully fight the Atlanteans because of these events.
My presumption is that the primordial Egyptians and Athens firstly dwelt in Sundaland or its proximity but the survivors of the catastrophe then fled to the present locations. It is described by Plato that “the war was said to have taken place between those who dwelt outside the Pillars of Heracles and all who dwelt within them.” It means that both of them were adjoining, bordered by the Pillars of Heracles located around a strait, the Atlanteans were inside the strait and the (primordial) Athens were outside. Note that, as said by the priest, the Egyptians wrote the registry of Atlantis a thousand years after the event.
