    Abstract:
    In our days, the interpretation of Plato’s Atlantis story as an invention of Plato is prevailing in academic scholarship. Atlantis scepticism is the choice of the bright side of life, so to say. Closely connected to the good feeling of being on the bright side is the depiction of Atlantis belief as dark and dangerous. Atlantis believers are considered crazy, and they even contributed to evil events in history. But there is another side of the story. There is a dark side of Atlantis scepticism about which no one has told you. Until now.
