Atlantis is a myth. The only mention of it is in a STORY by Plato. Perhaps it refers to a volcano in the Aegean that destroyed the island of Thera (Santorini) which affected the entire area. Folk memories would keep a story alive.
The mythical elements of a vast civilisation were added later, possibly as a warning to us that we are slaves to nature no matter how important we think we are.. The new age idea that they were some sort of superior seed civilisation was added much later. The UFO/alien myth was added after people invented UFOs and aliens. What a creative and fascinating species we are! ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <sharelong60@...> wrote: John, I wonder what really happened in Atlantis. They were so evolved but then they turned to the dark side. I've heard that's why they were destroyed.

They were supposedly highly developed in consciousness and technology. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <sharelong60@...> wrote: Richard, John or anyone, where does Atlantis fit into this scenario of Sumerians? It seems they were an advanced race with highly developed technologies. I've not read much about all this but find it fascinating. I also wonder how the ancient Vedic civilization fits in with all this. On Monday, December 2, 2013 8:54 AM, Richard J. Williams <punditster@...> wrote: The idea that human beings are a slave race, forced to work inside a human body, owned and operated by an alien or extraterrestrial society, is not a new one. The Book of Genesis, based on ideas contained in the Sumerian religion, describes an advanced society, which flourished around 3500 B.C. Aliens posing as the Gods for a custodial race? Like other ancient societies, the Sumerians left records stating that human-like creatures of extraterrestrial origin had ruled early human society as Earth's first monarchs. Those alien people were often thought of as "gods." Some people believe that a Supreme Being is behind the vicious Machiavellian intentions described in the Bible. However, the idea that a "Custodial" race posing as a Supreme Being seems to provide a true breakthrough by pointing to a brutal technological society, not a Supreme Being, as the more likely source of such warlike machinations.

So, the tribes refer to all human beings who are or were born on earth during the 12 months of the year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjkyrQcQzEg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjkyrQcQzEg If there are ETs or other human beings in the universe, IMO these entities can be classified according to various sectors of the skies that belong to each zodiac sign. Specifically, if there are ETs in the star group of Pleiades, they would belong to the sign of Taurus since the star group is located in this constellation.
