At the center of Donnelly's thesis are similarities between widely separated cultures. This he interpreted as evidence that all civilization diffused outward from a central point: a now sunken continent in the mid-Atlantic. He cites mythological, linguistic, ethnographic & other evidence for his theory, which at the time seemed to add up to an airtight case. He proposes a literal interpretation of Plato's Atlantis account. He also ties it into the global flood myth-complex. These, until recently, have been two of the most compelling unsolved puzzles of history. What was Plato writing about when he described the prehistoric civilization which disappeared overnight in a great catastrophe? Was this an historical account or a philosophical fable? Why do widely separated cultures on every continent have a similar myth of a flood from which only a few survived to restart civilization? It's only in the past half century that proposals based in scientific fact have been proposed to solve these conundrums. It now appears that these two problems may actually be totally unrelated altho both have a spectacular origin related to catastrophes of geological scale.
