If Plato’s Atlantis was indeed mirrored from both endtimes Babylon and Jerusalem into time and space, then let’s focus on Babylon. According to Gerhard Kringe, Babylon has three daughters: Rome, Istanbul and Pergamum in Turkey. Rome is a European city while Istanbul is the connection between east and west and between christianity and islam. Pergamum is located on the west coast of Turkey. Pergamum was the refuge for the priests of Babylon. The regent of Pergamum was called a Pontifex Maximus (Kringe, z.d.). And Pergamum is the throne of satan (Revelation 2:13).
Istanbul was the city of emperor Constantine who was a sun worshipper (Kringe, z.d.). Attalus III, regent of Pergamum offered his title of a Pontifex to the Caesar of Rome (Kringe, z.d.).
Babylon’s three daughters that are cities remind me of the three daughters of Baal-Tsaphon (Exodus 14:1-2; Gordon in Finegan, 1965, p. 483, note 92) and Allah (Soera 53:19-20). These three daughters were Manaat, Allat and Al Uzza. All of them were expressions of Astarte who was the goddess of the Sidonians (1 Kings 11:5). Also others claimed that Allah had three daughters (Rodinson, 2008, p. 28). According to an arab tradition Al-laat was Athena (Rodinson, 2008, p. 28). Allah is for that reason no one else than Baal Tsaphon, the sphinx. According to the Greek historic Herodotus, Al-laat was the goddess of Quedarites (Herodotus in Gibson, 2011, p. 195). Al-Uzza and Manaat were also mentioned by Karen Armstrong (Armstrong, 2006, p. 35-36; Finegan, 1965, p. 483; 496; Rodinson, 2008, p. 28). Al-Uzza points to Uz, which was Edom, the land of Job (Lamentations 4:21). Job was king Jobab of Edom.
In the name of Manat we recognize the characters “Man” of Minos, Menes, Money, Agamemnon or Mnemosyne, who was the goddess in the Atlantis story in Critias 108 and of king Mneseus in Critias 114. In the name of Al-Uzza we recognize the name of Uz, which is Edom, the land of Job.
With Rome and Istanbul and Pergamum as a Greek settlement, Atlantis had strongly European connections.
