They believe that just because some old Greek philosopher that used stories to give moral lessons told a story about a place called Atlantis, that this Atlantis place must have really existed and because it really existed it must have had lasers and nuclear reactors, otherwise why would we be telling stories about it. Well, there is no arguing with these people.
