The gods, however, did not
prove of t his mortal's pre sumption and saw i t as nothing but blasphemy what he wished to do. When he reac hed the top of the mou ntain wher e the water of the gods was, they smote him.

Had he not b een encoura ged in h is delusion , the peopl e would ha ve been saved. So Atlantis itself was stru ck with fire from the heaven s and c ast beneath the waves.
