and i also believe the same will be happening again.
How is this even a theory? It's unfounded speculation.

Wouldn't there be vast finds of these sorts of artifacts?
No one with any credibility has suggested that any of these ancient civilizations could rival our own, overall, in technological achievement.

Still, several contenders did have technologies that were quite impressive at the time, and that clearly surpassed their contemporaries in many ways.

The Minoans I mentioned on the first page had hypocaustic central heating, hot and cold running water, and flush toilets, ~3500 years ago. That's pretty damn impressive, since these things didn't become common (outside the households of wealthy Romans) again until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

It's obviously not a city. The scale is all wrong for it to be walls, roads, or canals. Also, that area has never been above water.

Thanks for explaining that to me, it kind of bugged me for a while

This has never made any sense to me. Where the proposed land bridge was is a really cold place. Also there is not much of anything on the Asian continent to draw someone up that way really. Maybe there was at some point I suppose but for the most part it is barren tundra even now. The time they say that the bridge existed was the last ice age when the seas were lower. Making that area even more inhospitable. It just makes no sense. Its possible but I sooner think that a band of maritime people did it just like the vikings or at least in a similar fashion. It is far more plausible to me considering that did in fact actually happen.

It's well accepted that the land bridge at what is now the Bearing Strait was indeed used for intercontinental migrations.

Yes, it was cold and relatively "inhospitable". So what? There have been humans living continually in similarly harsh climates for many thousands of years, plenty of traditional/tribal peoples still do. There is virtually no place on this earth that humans, even ones with primitive societies/technology cannot thrive in. "Barren tundra" is no obstacle.

Whether it makes sense to you or not is irrelevant. It happened.

That said, there is also evidence of ocean going peoples making inter continental journeys far earlier than has been traditionally accepted. So ruling this out is equally as foolish.

If they ever find Atlantis, it would be in history records or books about the greek, specifically, Homer.

Boy: Look! I found Atlantis!
Mother: Where?
Boy: Right here, in the book *points to the word Atlantis*
