Somewhere Below the Ocean

I always find the lost continent of Atlantis fascinating and the stories never end.  I guess it has to be one of the greatest stories ever told and somehow it came to Egypt.  Supposedly these people of Atlantis who lived above the ocean beyond the pillars of Hercules were more advanced than the rest of the world and at least one of them survived.  Since they were isolated from the rest of the world, the only thing known about them comes from stories that Plato told, but apparently the Egyptians accepted one of the survivors as a god.  Thoth the dude with the bird head was thought to have come from Atlantis and because he was smarter than the rest of the Egyptians, they made him the god of wisdom.  With his help the Egyptians were able to build the pyramids, but I have always liked him because he invented writing.  Thoth should be the god of the bloggers, as bloggers wouldn’t be doing very much without writing.
