Ancient philosopher Plato said he heard the legend of Atlantis from his father, who heard it from an Egyptian priest (known as Solon), and recently in fact they've found 4,000-year-old cocaine in an Egyptian mummy when coca plants only grow in South America, which means that 4,000 years ago, SOMEONE was trading between South America and North Africa (the Sahara used to be green and lush during the last Ice Age with a great river flowing into the Nile from the west - which means that the boundary of North African civilization was much further west into Libya or maybe as far as Argelia or Morocco).
We also know that in the last ice age, the ocean levels were much lower because more water was held up as ice, so that we're expecting a huge reservoir of archaeological finds to resurface in the next ice age, when water levels return to their ice age lows again.
Now, I'm generally a skeptic and in this age where anything passes for documentary on the History Channel, this story was suspicious but I read it in a Latin American newspaper, and then found this information on a submerged pyramid off the coast of Florida / Cuba, which I think is fascinating. Please share and share your comments.
Vids on the find:
AND THE NEWS HERE:
Perhaps eclipsing the discoveries of Troy and King Tut’s tomb is the discovery of Atlantis. Now, two daring scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, claim they’ve found it. They discovered the submerged ruins of the ancient city off the shores of Cuba. In the distant past the region was dry land, but now only the island of Cuba remains above water. The ancient city is 600 feet below the ocean and the team of researchers led by Weinzweig and Zalitzki are convinced it is Atlantis—the city lost for more than 10,000 years.
Atlantis found in Bermuda Triangle
Two scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, working off the coast of Cuba and using a robot submersible, have confirmed that a gigantic city exists at the bottom of the ocean. The site of the ancient city — that includes several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids plus other structures — amazingly sits within the boundries of the fabled Bermuda Triangle.
According to a report by arclein of Terra Forming Terra, Cuban Subsea Pyramid Complex, the evidence points to the city being simultaneously inundated with rising waters and the land sinking into the sea. This correlates exactly with the Atlantis legend.
The disaster may have occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. As the Arctic icecap catastrophically melted it caused sea levels to rise quickly around the world, especially affecting the Northern Hemisphere. Coast lines changed; land was lost; islands (even island continents) disappeared.
At the end of last Ice Age sea levels were nearly 400 feet lower than present day levels. Once the waters began to rise, they rose swiftly. Conceivably, no technology then, or now, could have saved Atlantis from its watery grave. The evidence that land in what’s now the Caribbean also sank into the sea concurrently seems pretty certain.
Arclein observes: “At the time uplifted portions of the Mid Atlantic Ridge subsided also including Lyonese and the home islands and land mass around the Azores. Even if that had not happened, this subsidence was amply large enough.
hmmm my BS senses are tingling...
I would have thought this would of made a bit more of a splash if there was anything credible to it.
And the conformation of this find is to be found where?
Here's another hypothesis:
