Comments: Huh


On the Atlantis thing, I'm of the opinion now -- and of course I'm an expert on these things -- that Atlantis was always a myth (there's only one source, a known fabulist) and trying to match up any real remains or history to the myth is just a waste of time.

But it makes great headlines, and what they've found is genuinely interesting.

Oh, I feel the same way about Atlantis, except that I think it's like most myths. Cobbled-together bits of half-understood, long-ago events. I don'[t think the entire story is fabricated.

But the search, as you point out, is unveiling some fascinating things.
