                     ATLANTIS - The Lost Continent

There once was a fifth continent, known as Atlantis. Is it fact 
or fiction ? Well that is for everyone to decide. In the
early beginning of modern times there was Atlantis, an
advanced civilisation, that had moonstone crystals and used
them for suppling heat for everyone, larger crystals had the 
power to destroy the world, the scientist realised this and 
wanted to protect their secret, but the King and his astrologers 
found out about this from spies in the kingdom, they were 
planning a conquest of the new world and would travel past 
the pillars of Hercules to invade and to take control of the free 
world. As their plans were to unfold, the volcanoes were starting
to erupt with anger as they had enraged the gods with their
evil intentions, as they were all ready for there conquest 
the volcanoes erupted and people were in panic and tried to 
flee Atlantis, by this time the island was starting to sink 
beneath the waves. The evil king and his men were swamped 
by hot lava and ash and were choking on the fumes as the
beautiful cities of Atlantis was doomed. After a short time
 the few boats that did escape moved into the distance
the refugees were all looking at the destruction of the once 
proud city of Atlantis. Atlantis is now gone as it sinks into 
the depths of the ocean. Years later it would be well 
remembered as Atlantis, - the lost continent.
