Oliver Smith was the one who predicted that within a day I would be verbally lynched here with my weird theories. I am still waiting. Then his article on Atlanis and the Minoans; I do not read anywhere in the 27 pages that the Minoans were the Philistines and ultimate enemies of the Israelites. Their idol was Dagon who we know as Poseidon. The volcanic eruption of Thera had NOTHING to do with the demise of Atlantis. Plato called an earthquake, not a volcanic eruption. The earthquake Plato mentioned was a nitrate bomb, a whopper we read about in Revelation 16:18. What Oliver Smith means is that Crete was a “type” of Atlantis and after the Exodus story where Pharaoh’s army disappeared into the waves – Exodus 15 – was another step in the evolution of the Atlantis model. Just as the fall of Tire in Ezekiel 27-28 was a type of Atlantis.
