Ireland = Atlantis?

Geographer Ulf Erlingsson has compared the geography of all the large islands on Earth to the description of the legend Atlantis. His conclusion is that the geographical details provided by Plato match the island of Ireland. Granted the original myths of Atlantis didn't include aliens, lasers, or Stargates, yet somehow thinking the megalithic era civilization that Ireland had 6,500 years ago was the genesis of the Atlantis myth seems too anticlimactic.

That is the nice thing about myths; you'll never what they truly mean, but they allow you to truly imagine.
