Lost City of Atlantis Discovered?

Grainy images show city-like formations at the bottom of the Caribbean

A group of ‘undersea archaeologists’ have become the latest to claim they have uncovered the lost city of Atlantis.

The scientists – who have refused to identify themselves – have released a series of images taken beneath the Caribbean.

They insist the snaps show what appear to be the ruins of a city that could pre-date Egypt’s pyramids, which appeared after 2600BC.

They even told a French newspaper that one of the structures appears to be a pyramid.

Now the anonymous group wants to raise funds to explore the secret location where the images were taken.

They would not reveal the exact location, however, saying only that it was somewhere in the Caribbean Sea.

The claims have raised eyebrows on the internet, though sceptics refrained from debunking them entirely – just in case.

The legend of Atlantis, a city of astonishing wealth, knowledge and power that sank beneath the ocean waves, has fascinated millions.

Time and time again hopes have been raised that the lost city has been found – only for those hopes to be dashed against the evidence (or lack thereof).

Its location  –  or at least the source of the legend  –  remained a tantalising mystery.

In 1997, Russian scientists claimed to have found Atlantis 100 miles off Land’s End.

In 2000 a ruined town was found under 300ft of water off the north coast of Turkey in the Black Sea.

The area is thought to have been swamped by a great flood around 5000BC, possibly the floods referred to in the Old Testament.

In 2004 an American architect used sonar to reveal man-made walls a mile deep in the Mediterranean between Cyprus and Syria.

In 2007 Swedish researchers claimed the city lay on the Dogger Bank in the North Sea, which was submerged in the Bronze Age.

And as recently as February of this year, what appeared to be grid-like lines that resembled city streets were spotted on Google Earth – in the ocean off the coast of Africa.

Sadly Google itself quickly debunked the suggestion, explaining that the lines were left by a boat as it collected data for the application.

‘Bathymetric (sea-floor) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea-floor,’ a spokesman said.

‘The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data.’

    I have seen cities and cropland from the air.
    This is neither. You might have a metals engineer look
    at it. Lots of similarities there.

    I found an area around the carribean on Google Maps that when zoomed in looked exactly like this.

    At first I really thought this could be evidence for man-made structures under the sea, but then I realised it was image compression artefacts, exacerbated by the image processing needed to turn dark images into an acceptable level of brightness & contrast, because the area viewed is under a shadow of a cloud (and so very dark). So naturally any artefacts from the image compression re going to be amplified.

    See here for a good example of this:

    By the way I can’t find that area again – the link I posted is an example in another area, namely Guantanamo.

    For the record, I do believe in the previous existence of a city called Atlantis and would be excited to discover more evidence of it.
