    I am of the opinion that the Minoans were either part of, or, the direct descendants of famed "Atlantis."

    Their cities must have been incredibly impressive in the day.
    Al Swearengen: What's your partner so mad about all the time?
    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    A volcanic island (Thera) to the north blew up and the resulting tsunami likely hit the Minoans on Crete.
    I believe this event was the basis of the Atlantis myth.

    That was exactly what I was thinking!

    Imagine a nice harbor, with man made "rings" as described for Atlantis.

    Good location for naval trade, AND....imagine all kinds of elaborate "baths" with WARM water, fueled by the underground volcano.

    The people were likely largely ignorant of the potential for destruction.

    The Minoans could have been colonists, or, refugees from Atlantis.

    Atlantian & other Pre Deluvial Civilizations (Mu) (Lemuria) and finds in the South Pacific (Nan Madol) and very early Proto Civilizations ( Gobekli Tepe ) (Late Denisovans) may sink the "Out of Africa Theory" yet .
