a different Atlantis

I believe that the Yucatan was an island (+ a small part of Guatemala around Lago Atitlan) and that it was formerly located 307 miles offshore (between Palm Valley/Villano Beach) Florida. A drawing by William N. Morgan of Stelly Mounds on page 37 of “Precolumbian Architecture in Eastern North America” gave me the idea that it was a map of the Gulf of Mexico at some time in the past. There are 3 mounds at the Stelly site in Louisiana, a large mound resembling the Yucatan with 2 other mounds; a cone-shaped mound and a rectangle one. I can’t show the page yet because of copyright issue. I saw earlier that in Googling Maps viewing the Gulf of Mexico underwater that the Yucatan (Maya block of the North American plate) had a notch in it (Catoche tongue) and off Florida it had a corresponding spike (Blake Spur).

Has any one created a reconstruction of the Atlantic with the Yucatan at this above location and does it match the ancient map INFULA ATLANTIS. Also does it match east coastal indian legends of a home island to the EAST. In Charlotte, NC precolumbian museum there is an etching on one side of a stone ring (Mayan ballcourt game) that looks like the Yucatan penninnsula with a spiral attached to it. I started thinking about Atlantis particularly if it was in the Atlantic between Florida and North Carolina. That would be across from the Pillars of Hercules. The painting “The Ambassadors” by Hans Holbein the Younger has DintVille’s left thumb pointing downward to the terrestrial globe, straight line down to the darkened area in the New World right across from the Pillars of Hercules. I also believe that the skull represents a large island that tragedy befell (perhaps the Yucatan with Volcan Atitlan as the nose or perhaps Atlantis or maybe both) or Bahamas with a larger land mass. Does it match the Mayan drawing of people viewing a volcano eruption from a canoe? Why is it that sweet gum trees appear in the Yucatan and on the east coast of United States? Have often wondered if the white chalk horse at Ufffington UK is a stylized outline of the United States with one front leg as Florida and the other front leg as the Bahamas/Yucatan. The underwater shape of the island is still there. Don’t know what mechanism(s) caused the Yucatan shift from Atlantic to Mexico (albeit sea floor spreading, methane hydrates, meteor strike, other) but Would love to hear what geologists, archaeologists, botanists, hydrologists and architects think! I did hear from USGS that the Maya block was a single entity in B.C. years (MA, millions of years ago) and still awaiting answers to whether the entity that drifted , rotated and bumped into Laurentia was ever joined to the spike feature underwater off Florida. Alas did hear from USGS that the Florida area was against Guinea (Africa) in the Pangea breakup and the Maya block stayed in the Gulf. I still believe there was a large island off Florida. Will keep looking and evaluating. Currently asking USGS and volcanologists about the mud, asphalt volcanoes in the Gulf of Mexico and reviewing a slide by Klaus Dona (Megalithomania 2011 Jo’burg, South Africa) of a stone world map found in Ecuador. One side of the boulder shows the Americans with a narrow neck from Mexico to South America. It doesn’t have the familar protuberance of the Yucatan from the neck of Texas/Mexico. It does have a vaguely rectangular shaped island in the Atlantic.
