Greeks Said Atlas a Son of Japheth by Elisha’s Elysian Fields Connection to Atlantis Really a Son of Canaanite Posidon


Although Plato wrote that Atlas was a son of Posidon (who was Ham’s grandson Sidon), other greek legends say that Atlas was a son of Iapetus who was Japheth, probably because a grandson of Japheth named Elisha (see Genesis 10) had sailed west for at least a time to the region of Atlantis which became known to the Greeks as the Elysian Fields of bliss in the afterlife (where the sun sets), and Atlas’ brother Mneseus in Plato’s story was Menoetius claimed in those other greek legends to have been too a son of Iapetus, helping to prove the historicity of Atlantis in its biblical context.
