Pseudo-scientific Atlantis searcher Robin Maxwell openly explaining why she thinks she is right with a literal reading of Plato's Atlantis story. It is always interesting to listen to people who are in deep error and to find the point where and why they basically fail to see the truth. Here, it obviously is a lack of historical-critical thinking.

Aktuelles Spektrum-Sonderheft: Seevölker (=Atlanter?):

Russian fake news conspicuously support pseudo-scientific ideas about Atlantis!

According to my observation, known Russian fake news Web sites do not only provide weird political conspiracy theories, but also pseudo-scientific ideas to their audience. Among them also some pseudo-scientific ideas about Plato's Atlantis. This is telling about the audience these fake news pages want to address. (Of course, to say that Atlantis surely was no real place could turn out to be fake news, too, one day. But not in a pseudo-scientific way.)

Some examples:

Sputnik News:
https://sputniknews.com/world/201612131048479535-theorists-say-atlantis-in-antarctica/
https://sputniknews.com/art_living/201608301044761690-sardinia-atlantis-lost-island/

Pravda TV (German):

Russia Today RT does only play with the theme as any other news site, as far as I can see:

"Prohibited" ideas:
Open words by a philosopher about "prohibited" ideas. It is easy to draw the line to the idea of Plato's Atlantis as a real place in a historical-critical sense:
Cite:
"In the academy, prohibited ideas are like a virus, and they threaten the careers of any who come into prolonged contact with them. (Because of this, prohibited ideas resemble the foundational in that hearsay is often accepted in lieu of detailed, first-hand analysis.) Ideas and thinkers in the prohibited class tend to be associated with reprehensible or ‘unjustified’ principles and premises. A philosopher of mind, for example, couldn’t positively reference Carl Jung’s idea of the collective unconscious without drawing considerable disdain from his colleagues. Hardly anyone actually reads Jung, but people nonetheless believe that he’s ‘not to be taken seriously’."
>>> Summary: <<<
- Even "contact" with such ideas is a problem.
- Hearsay is accepted to reject such ideas.
- No one does the work of really analyzing such ideas.
