How naive must one be to believe this kind of hogwash ?
Magnetic poles take tens of thousands of years to reverse.
Major earthquakes are very unlikely happen in two distant places on the same year, let alone more. Chances that they hit right into a major city are relatively small, which is why even cities that sit right on a very active seismic fault like Tokyo or Los Angeles aren't hit more than once a century in average (though it is true that the odds are getting dangerously high for Tokyo).
Actually, except for a few normal earthquakes in the East Mediterranean region (that destroyed buildings but not civilisations) there is very little evidence at all. Atlantis may have been one example of civilisation destroyed, but we don't even know if it really existed nor precisely where. That's not what I call 'evidence'. Then, Atlantis wasn't a civilisation in the modern sense of the term. It was a just small island. Nowadays a civilisation would be the Western world, or the Arab world, or South Asia (Indian Civilisation = Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka) and East Asia (China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea and Japan). It's impossible for natural catastrophes to affect a whole modern civilisation.
There is ample evidence in the literature of ancient civilizations that such disasters have occured in the past and also clues that they knew when another such calamity would occur.
