This map of the world of ancient Atlantis is courtesy of Bibliotecapleyades.net.
In its earliest days, pre-flood Atlantis was ruled by Satan directly: that is, Satan was there in physical form as its physical king (But then the earth had not descended, if you will, into the 3-dimensional reality that we are in today). Plato says that the Atlantean kingdom had ten kingdoms (or colonies) that were part of its empire. It is said that the founder of Atlantis was the sea-god Poseidon. And in time it came to dominate most if not all of the world. Then the island of Atlantis (some call the island "Appalachia") sunk beneath the waters around 9,600 BC.
The following lyrics are from the song "Viva La Vida", by the band Coldplay.
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
This song being in the first person--perhaps it's supposed to be Satan speaking? It would make a lot of sense. Satan does rule this world, but he is not openly acknowledged (by the vast majority of peoples) as their true king. All the gods and goddesses--whether Krishna; Vishnu; Diana; Ashtaroth; Isis; Osiris; Apollo; Mithradates; Allah; the Jesus of the Book of Mormon, the Watchtower Society, the Message, and the Urantia Book --lead back to Satan.
Millions upon millions of people all over the earth worhip these gods and others also. I'm sure most of them don't understand to whom they give their reverence. Then there are those who understand fully whom they worship. but clearly Satan is not openly worshipped at all in society today. Satanic symbols are openly displayed in movies, on TV, in music (and music videos) and comic books. Satanic rituals are carried out in front of millions; the audiences do not perceive what is being performed in front of their very eyes or on the TV/computer screen: the last Superbowl Halftime Show with Madonna being a good example.
Yet in all this Satan is not worshipped outright. Scripture indicates that a time is coming--and shortly from what I can see--that he will demand that the peoples of the earth directly and openly worship him, or else they will die--either from being executed, or from starvation, or from disease and war. He will arise in the West. He will come from a Christian background, as Daniel 11:37 says: "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers..."
Clinton Ortiz, on his website grailcode.net, makes a superb argument for how the kingdom of the "man of sin"--aka the "Antichrist--will be a revived Atlantis. This 2nd Atlantis will also have "ten kings" (Revelation) or "ten horns" (Daniel) that will "receive power as kings one hour with the beast" (Rev. 17:12). Also, the ten toes on the statue in Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Daniel 2) illustrates symbolically this final, short-lived empire of Satan: Atlantis reborn but for a short time. Revelation 12:12 says, "Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time".
As ancient Atlantis had its homebase on an island in the Atlantic Ocean, so will the 2nd Atlantis--namely Britain. Daniel 8:9 suggests as much: the "man of sin" or the "little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land". This verse indicates that the Antichrist will come from northwest of the Holy Land ("pleasant land"). The British Isles lay to the extreme north and west of "Palestina" (Isaiah 15:29). The Antichrist--a king of England--will work his way south and east, towards the Holy Land: as Ezekiel 38 also says.
The unfolding of these events--spoken of in the verses cited above--may begin with the Summer Olympics in London.
The above map is my own depiction of the ten kingdoms (formerly colonies) of Atlantis. All the kingdoms above Magdela are these ten kingdoms. The kingdoms of Magdela and Eggsham are the bridge between Europe and Africa. Once the Antichrist comes into power, he will consolidate his power over Europe and move towards the Middle East. Later, after he wages war with the "king of the south" (Egypt) and subdues China--"Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil?" (Ezekiel 38:13) The people of the Arabian peninsula, along with the traders of the British Commonwealth (it appears, who by now are having to deal with a severely wrecked world economy) will ask the "man of sin" if he intends to invade a drastically weakened United States. For a new thought will have come into his mind, as witnessed in Ezekiel 38:10-12: "It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land."
