    Atlantis Power Grid
    13th Location Discovered !!!


    by Doug Yurchey
    Atlantis was a continent in the Atlantic Ocean and connected to 12 other colonies that formed a perfect GRID around the Earth
    . We know this now because of the long-awaited, (by a handful of people) new discovery in Canada.
    Precisely where a map of Atlantis from 1974 predicted SOMETHING would be found,
    something HAS been found by Google Earth. Here are the coordinates
    of a Nazca-like (image) INDIAN seen from high in the air: 50 degrees 0'38.20" N 110 degrees 6'48.32" W.
    atl13_dy1.

    Use Google Earth yourself to zoom down on the area and take your own photos! At the end of the article are more downloaded pictures of the Canadian terrain that appears as an INDIAN. After examining details of the image, the conclusions are obvious. The copper colored hills, like an Indian Head penny, were shaped and not natural formations. What is an Indian doing in Canada?
    THE INDIAN IN THE MOUNTAINS IS THE FIRST EVIDENCE OF PREHISTORIC CANADIANS!

    There are no pyramids, monoliths, stone circles, petroglyphs, mounds or ancient burials in Canada.
    But, there SHOULD be evidence of early Indians in the vast northern country.
    If Indians walked to the Americas from Asia over a land-bridge at the Bering Strait,
    why is there no trace of prehistoric ruins of any kind in Canada?
    This mystery is huge and ignored by archeologists and educators.
    The Indian-absence means their entire picture of the past is wrong and backwards!

    Thor Heyerdaul did not prove Indians arrived by boat. His better built,
    second attempt at proving an obsolete misconception sank with the Ra II.

    The farther back we go in time, the MORE advanced technically (and mentally)
    were the Indian civilizations.
    We know this by 'reading' or studying the physical stonework, what ruins they left behind.
    The Anastasi, Hopi and Cahokia Mound-Builders were more advanced than the later Indians of the Old West
    . The Aztec Stone-Builders were more advanced than the great earth-movers, the Anastasi/Cahokians.
    The Maya were superior to the Aztec. The Toltec Age came before the Maya
    and they were greater than the Maya. Toltecs' ancestors were the Inca;
    they built impossible stonework on top of the Andes Mountains! Incas farmed on mountaintops
    many thousands of years ago where no one can live today. The Pre-Inca constructed stonework 'impossible'
    by present-day standards. They had no hieroglyphs because of the unbelievable reason
    that the PRE-INCA HAD NO NEED for a written or spoken language! (psychic-society)
    The same can be said for the Pre-Egyptians an ocean away.
    They were the survivors of, yet another, superior and previous Age...the Age of Atlantis.

    THE INDIANS CAME TO THE AMERICAS BY AIR!

    Canada should be the ancient home of the Inca with cut, trimmed and transported monoliths everywhere. Canadian provinces should contain MORE standing stones than England and northern France. Mountain ruins of intricately cut (lasered) and moved (anti-gravitated) blocks that cannot be duplicated by today's state-of-the-art technology...as they exist in South and Central America...should cover the Canadian hillsides. Imagine what Canada SHOULD be if history were correct: Snow-covered, massive, stone monoliths that defy our wildest dreams among great forests that have grown over the millennia. That is not the case; there is not even an arrowhead in Canada. Canada tells us history is wrong.

    A truer picture of history is a NORTHWARD migration of Indian from the Peruvian Andes...to Central American pyramid-builders and, down the tech-spiral but geographically 'up' the map, to the simpler (less advanced) Old West Indians. The movement of Indian Civilizations over time was NORTH, not south as schoolbooks report. Indians also became LESS advanced over time. Teepee Indians had pyramid-building ancestors. This is the exact opposite of the always-progressing, technical curve that we are traditionally taught.

    Examine the 13 locations of the ATLANTIS POWER GRID. The article will briefly explore the most obscure of these Cradles of Civilization. Humanity flourished in prehistoric times around these culture-centers; upon each 'node' of the GRID; the same mysteries and parallels occurred at all of the 13 locations. Here is another major mystery of multiple origin-areas for the human race. There should be ONE starting point, not MANY; not on tops of the Andes, on remote Easter Island; in the middle of the Sahara Desert; Japan; Europe; far away Australia; deepest Africa in Zimbabwe; India; Russia; Brazilian jungles and now Canada? How did humans get everywhere on the planet, even to isolated regions? The same building techniques, great knowledge of math and astronomy, same burials, beliefs...and the same story of an advanced civilization instantly appeared and mysteriously disappeared at the GRID positions, should SHOCK investigators! Instead, traditional researchers ignore the forest for the trees. Pyramids were not tombs. Ancient (impossible) stonework functioned as 'utility poles' in a TESLA-based system, rather than idols to pagan gods.

    If our ancestors were primitive, the titanic stonework of the past (pyramids, monoliths, great statues, etc.) would not exist. The Stone Age was not a primitive, caveman period; it was an age where human gods built upon the Earth. If traditions were correct, then the only evidence of the distant past would be unearthed in the fossil record. There would be fossilized thatched roofs, simple implements and the most basic of things. Instead, we discover the Power System of the Gods in impossible stonework in impossible places!

    The Cradles of Civilization were built on a global grid. The significance of this geographical FACT is the 12 Atlantean colonies were all connected to the main Power-Station in the Atlantic. Global grids (as they would in today's wired world) exist IN A PATTERN, connected in a worldwide system. If we observe a repeating, global pattern or network around the entire planet...we are forced to conclude a high-tech 'intelligence' was the architect. In the case of a technical 'Eden,' that prehistoric empire was Atlantis. Atlantis was not a legend, but the ancestors of the Pre-Egyptians and Pre-Incas.

    The discovery of the 12th LOCATION ON THE GRID happened in the fall of 2003.

    'WASHINGTON, September 18, 2003 - Newly discovered traces of ancient roads, bridges and plazas in Brazil's tropical forest may help dispel the once-popular impression of an 'untouched' Amazon before the Europeans' arrival. In southern Brazil, archeologists have found the remains of a NETWORK or urban communities that apparently hosted a population many thousands strong. Reporting their findings in the journal SCIENCE, published by AAAS, the science society, the researchers say the people who dwelled there dramatically changed their local landscape.'

    Michael Heckenberger of the University of Florida and his colleagues were 'baffled' at the discovery. 'There was this cherished image that the Amazon was pure nature...archeologists are compelled to revise their views of ancient Brazil.'

    The 1974 MAP of 13 positions, in a pattern, predicted such a discovery would happen in Brazil and it did. In an area that was long thought to be too hostile for a human city, there were organized roads and parks 'in grid-like patterns.' Ancient Amazons managed large areas and were far more advanced than previously thought.

    The 11th LOCATION ON THE GRID was discovered in 1985 by Kihachiro Aratake under the waters of the South China Sea and called 'Yonaguni.' Beautiful blue/green photos of the quasi-pyramid structure can be downloaded off the Internet. The monument has wide terraces, ramps and large steps. Japanese scientists have documented marks on the stones that indicate they were hewn. A stairway carved into the gigantic rock on the ocean floor proves the structure was not natural.

    Lemuria was an Asian Empire BEFORE Atlantis that primarily dominated the Pacific Ocean area. It is reasonable to assume the Asian Culture reformed as an Atlantean outpost around the Japanese sub-station. Yonaguni, just southwest of Japan, is physical evidence IN THE ANTICIPATED AREA of (again) an advanced race of Stone-Builders. Asians are not Indians, yet they may have utilized the World Wireless location predicted for Japan.

    The 10th LOCATION ON THE GRID is in prehistoric Russia. There are ancient Russian megaliths! They, too, were stone-cutters and transporters of many tons of megalithic rock. Again we see a culture, thousands of miles away from the jungles of Central America, constructing massive totems. Russian megaliths resemble the Mayan stele. Like the standing stones of England and Australia, the harsh lands of the Soviets also contain similar monuments. In the Caucasian Mountains and all around the Black Sea, there are 'dolmens.' They are early, bizarre, stone dwellings. Some stand alone, some are in groups (in patterns). There are similar structures in North Europe and in India. They were not primitive. Sophisticated technicians, similar to Egyptian artisanship, had to have produced these buildings. Were they prehistoric bomb shelters?

    'The Caucasian megalithic monuments are distinguished by highly skillful stone carving, almost that of a jeweler.’

    The 9th LOCATION ON THE GRID is in central Australia, near Alice Springs. The first Aussies are now thought to have occupied the continent 60,000 years ago. The present climate in the Outback is a very hot, dry desertland. Many thousands of years ago, Australia was a 'green,' fertile terrain where 'giant animals roamed.' Bushmen, rich in legend, believe they are native to the continent. 'Down Under' is another land with ancient, monolithic, standing stones.

    Near Alice Springs, archeologists have found 'fused rock' and glasslike particles. The only way such formations could have been produced is by an incredibly intense HEAT! The rocks may have melted together in an atomic devastation. The recurring theme of a fertile land, now devastated is a common occurrence on the GRID locations. There are numerous Aussie drawings and rock carvings that seem to depict strange visitors wearing helmets, antennas, gloves and boots. This is very similar to what is found at Tassili; strange, ancient paintings among a wasteland.

    Ayer's Rock (Uluru) is one of Australia's most recognizable landmarks. It is the planet's largest megalith and is considered one of the great wonders of the world. It is a MAGNETIC mound similar to Silbury Hill in England. The huge rock is a giant spike in the ground and we only see its red top. Could the entire natural phenomenon have been 'electrified' in ancient times and used as an oscillating Power Pole as Tesla had demonstrated? Central Australia is one of the Map-locations, yet the entire continent seems to have slipped southward away from the GRID pattern.

    Tassili is the 8th LOCATION ON THE GRID. In Algeria, there are mountains that rise from the Sahara Desert and resemble the mountains on the Moon. Again, a mysterious race of people came from parts unknown and settled in an inhospitable environment. They took refuge in the high caves. Tassili ‘is as remote as you can get.’ There are hundreds of thousands of rock paintings. Painted by ‘realistic’ artists, the images show African elephants; giraffes; rhinos; hippos; horses; the ancestors of domesticated cattle; herds of antelope; flowers; wild fauna and flora; colorful meadows; grasslands; waterholes, etc. What is wrong with this picture? The paintings are prehistoric and in the center of the largest desert on Earth.

    All experts agree on the incredible age of the drawings. They were not a matter of hundreds of years old, but many thousands of years old! Beyond the age, there is something incredibly ODD about the depictions. A small percentage show MODERN images! There are figures with large, bulbous, ‘round-heads.’ Some figures seem to be horizontally floating in air. Some appear to have modern accessories such as zippers; belts; wristbands; backpacks; antennae, etc. Henri Lhote called an 18 foot high giant, painted on the cave walls, Great God Mars. There was one particular ‘round-head’ in a modern, uniform-suit with antennae that operated an apparatus. Illustrated in the background, was a SAUCER with thrusters!

    Consider that these were the survivors of some great, atomic cataclysm as mentioned in the prehistoric books of India. Where else would people go to escape the fallout...but in the caves? The desert did not form naturally. Given this scenario of a nuclear holocaust, it could explain the modern figures with round heads. They wore radiation suits. People, from other lands (a few) with the technology, could have been tested radiation levels and account for the strange images. Cave dwellers, with high quality paint, observed them.

    ‘The whole of the Sahara is dotted with artistic engravings and paintings on rock faces.’ These other locations are on the roofs of rock caves and mainly in the highlands. It is possible that there was less radiation, the higher the altitude. Tassili occupies one more grid-point on the map of 13. If we only examined the cave paintings, we are mystified. If we study the big picture, we can begin to make some sense of it and rewrite traditional history.

    The 7th LOCATION ON THE GRID is the Ashoka Pillar in New Delhi, India. India, another Cradle of Humanity, is a great society with a rich prehistory. The 'rust-free' iron alloy had baffled metallurgists for centuries. The sleek Pillar tapers to a height of 24 feet, crowned with an odd antenna design. The 7-ton, major mystery is largely ignored. It is only a popular tourist attraction because it is adjacent to the famous Qutab Minar. Yet, for THOUSANDS of years, the metal has remained rust-free. Here are only a few descriptions of the 'miracle of technology.'

    * 'Indian metallurgists were indeed FAR advanced for their time.'

    * '...sheer elegance of the Pillar.'
    * '...made of metal found nowhere else in the world.'

    * '...its rustless splendour, one cannot help but admire the high skill and perfect technology of the early Indian iron makers in producing so large a monument.'

    Renowned British metallurgist, Robert Hadfield, wrote: 'In spite of all the scientific advances that have been made, the Delhi Pillar is, as far as I am able to judge, of a BETTER QUALITY than anything metallurgists are able to produce today.'

    After centuries of study, scientists finally resolved the composition of the 'miracle' alloy. It was BLACK MAGNETITE! The prehistoric Pillar carried a magnetic charge! Experts have concluded that its creators were super-skilled metallurgists and machinists to have formed a non-rusting hunk of METAL that large. More importantly, its manufacturers had to have mastered 'electricity' to account for its high Electro-Magnetic properties.

    India was the home of legendary 'flying carpets' from early books predating the Bible. 'Vimanas' (flying vehicles) were recorded in the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabarata, Vedas and Vedik. They described very ancient technology without modern words. Some researchers have concluded that the holy texts of India reported NUCLEAR WARS! The ‘stories’ perfectly described terrible wars and the vimana craft. Robert Oppenheimer often quoted from the old books of India when he said, 'I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.'

    The Pillar could have functioned as a Tesla Utility Pole that oscillated with fantastic EM power. The (misnamed) Ashoka Pillar may have been the energy source for the many, early accounts of flying vehicles. The virtually 'alien,' rust-free Pillar stands on the exact opposite side of the Earth as Easter Island. The significance of the geological fact has to do with MAGNETIC POLES. Easter Island exerts a higher-than-normal EM attraction; compass needles point to Easter Island.

    The 6th LOCATION ON THE GRID is Zimbabwe. Archeologists still do not know who lived here or why their power came to an abrupt end. 'Zimbabwe' is the Shona word for 'rock.' The main fortress contains cut monoliths 20 feet thick and 36 feet high! The ruins, south of Masvingo in deepest/darkest Africa, are unbelievable and (historically) impossible. They are the 'biggest example of ancient architecture south of the Great Pyramids.'

    Called 'house of stones' or 'sacred house,' Zimbabwe was the center of a 'prosperous high culture.' The curved walls and conical towers (33' high) once had a population in the tens of thousands. Zimbabwe is, again, another major mystery ignored by historians because they have no place for it in tradition. The curved, massive masonry of the first Africans is not the only mystery. The SAME type of stone architecture was used by the Inca on Andes mountaintops thousands of miles away. The Great Zimbabwe complex stands in the center of a vast network of smaller, stonework that are scattered over many thousands of square miles! Would it surprise you to discover the little stonework (sub-stations) in the region covers a large area IN A PATTERN? Are you seeing a pattern?

    Europeans were reluctant to believe that Africans could have built Zimbabwe. British archaeologists David Randall-MacIver and Gertrude Caton-Thompson, early last century, have absolutely established that the ruins were of African origin. The Black Race began in Zimbabwe. They were the noble children of kings and queens. Here was one more culture rich in legend and primeval history. As with all cultures along the GRID, later when the power ended and the empire fell, a LESS advanced society took its place.

    Archeologists and educators fail to praise the fantastic achievements of the grand, Zimbabwean architecture in STONE. Our impressions of early Africans consist of primitive natives living in crude huts. SINCE WHEN WERE THE FIRST AFRICANS GREAT STONE-BUILDERS? Zimbabwe destroys our preconceptions of the past. Yet, the ruins are basically no different than other points on the Atlantean GRID. Give the prehistoric Africans the credit they deserve and place them up there with other, impressive Stone-Builders.

    The soil around the main Zimbabwe fortress (Power-Station) was poor and cannot sustain a large community. Once again, we have titanic monoliths transported far from the quarry and fit together without mortar. We have a pattern of smaller stones surrounding a main complex; same as pyramids, mounds and standing stones. This was all a system of 'wireless electricity' transmission. Atlantis was a World System of power distribution to the GRID points, then the energy was stepped-down to local areas. Zimbabwe falls perfectly along the GRID and is connected to the other, similar colonies around the planet. The physical evidence of a 'primary surrounded by many secondaries' repeats in the pyramid civilizations, mound-builders and standing monoliths (totems) or statues. These independent cultures, separated by thousands of miles, were not isolated...they were all connected to a global system.

    Researchers make the fatal mistake of only studying Stonehenge or Easter Island or the Great Pyramid. Some experts have concluded that it was as if the 'same construction company' went out to these locations and built the Cradles of Civilization. Stand back and see the entire picture. Investigate all of the 13 sites and note the similarities in mysteries.

    The FIRST 5 LOCATIONS ON THE GRID are ancient sites so famous, details of the unknowns do not have to be cited here. Hundreds of, if not more than a thousand, books have been written about them. Expeditions have been financed in search of them and sent to study them. Documentaries by the scores have been filmed. The ruins (or Plato's Atlantis) have mystified us for hundreds of years. Research the locations; discover how traditional history fails miserably in the explanation of the primordial enigmas. They are:

    1. ATLANTIS once a continent in the Atlantis Ocean, (the prime Power-Station).
    2. GREAT PYRAMID at Giza in the exact, geographical center of all landmasses.
    3. INCA Civilizations in Peru around Lake Titicaca.
    4. STONEHENGE in England and 'pattern' of surrounding monoliths or 'standing stones.'
    5. EASTER ISLAND and the colossal 'maoi' stone giants on a remote, volcanic island.

    Found by Donna Epstein; she emailed me this recent discovery, the 13th location! IT WAS THE LAST PIECE TO A PUZZLE THAT HAD HAUNTED ME SINCE 1974. She had read my (little-known) 'Wireless World' article and knew I had been in search of: SOMETHING just north of the U.S. and precisely on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan. This is the exact area of the Indian carved in the mountains. The article that states the MAP-GRID prediction was posted on the World-Mysteries.com and Farshores.com websites ever since 2002; before piece #12 and #13 were found (Brazil & Canada). The coincidence is these just happen to be CANADIAN UFO and Mystery websites.

    Imagine a large map of CANADA on the wall, and in 1974, you predict that the first sign of ancient Canadians will appear...(then throw a dart from across the room) on the spot the dart lands. This is precisely what has occurred only the GRID LOCATIONS were not arrived at by the random throwing of darts. You can write to me at dugko@surfside.net
    and receive interviews/radio shows (also the map) where the origin of the 13-point map is revealed. Its origin is extraordinary and as unique as the Betty Hill Star Map. Yonaguni proved my MAP's validity. The unexpected grid-parks in Brazil proved its credibility. NOW...without question, the carved Indian mountains have appeared thanks to Google Earth...in the anticipated area. The MAP is proven. ATLANTIS IS DISCOVERED!

    These physical facts (I believe) prove that the Canadian image was carved and could be connected to the global empire of Atlantis! As in all of the GRID points, a real mystery truly stands in each of the spots. The IRONY is that the Canadian image is an INDIAN! It is the LACK of Indians in Canada that demonstrates the error of traditional history. Many of the 13 locations were obliterated; some left deserts after what could have been ancient, atomic wars. Some remote colonies were never rebuilt; while others, their very spots were reused repeatedly. All traces of prehistoric Canadians were wiped out as great forests replaced what could have been a thriving metropolis. What was NOT erased by the holocaust was a giant, Nazca-like Indian. Was the image a guardian of the past or its own prophecy of simpler Indians in future generations?

    Now, your last assignment: Study the Wardenclyffe tower (NY 1900-1905), the work of Nikola Tesla; especially his 'World System' of Magnifying Transmitters and wireless electricity! You will discover that in the 19th Century, this super genius planned to OBSOLETE his AC invention with wireless power. It was only the basic principle, the blueprint of the far superior Atlantean System, yet it would work and could bring on an age of gods and goddesses. Tesla realized we are not ready for Paradise and dismantled his crowning life's achievement. The Earthlings would make wars with the first Magnifying Transmitter rather than let it freely power cities!

    When this writer read that Tesla planned for a World System of NINE TOWERS to complete his global grid; Wardenclyffe was only the first...I concluded that the MAP OF 13 ATLANTIS COLONIES operated on the same principle!!! Atlantis mastered what Tesla only proved on a basic level. The human race (in Eden) fed off the power and flourished...until even the greatest of empires FALL. Atlantis had a system of 13; Tesla's design was a global grid of 9 locations. Could Atlantis have been the ORIGINAL 13 colonies?

    The 20th Century did not follow Tesla's wonderful, utopian vision. However, what does the future hold? The distant future will succeed with the return of Atlantis. A great circle will be completed as a technical Atlantis returns. History repeats and Utopia comes back to us, once again. A New Genesis for the human race speaks to the true GREATNESS of our ancestors and to the greatness of Tomorrow's children's children…

    The ruins of temples dated at 12,000 years old
    have been found near Bimini, Bahamas.
    Megalithic structures are not supposed to be in the Bahamas.
    Preliminary analysis has revealed that the original structures,
    although smaller in size than the Great Pyramid of Giza, appear to have been more advanced.
    Casing stones have been measured which are of the same unique angle as those at the Great Pyramid.
    The ruins are megalithic and bear a remarkable resemblance to ancient sites in Egypt. So called "quarry marks" found in the Aswan quarries and also on the Great Pyramid, itself,
    appear to be identical matches with those found on the Bimini temple stones.
    One major difference, however, between the Egyptian sites
    and these stones is that on The Bimini stones you find a great number of sky maps
    which have recorded the paths of various heavenly bodies.
    The major concern of the mysterious ancient civilization that produced these heavenly maps
    seems to have been Saturn and Jupiter --with the oldest records reflecting an emphasis in Saturn.
    Some of the stones are under water and some of them are under the sand under water.
    They are not in their original formation.
    It appears that the most important or revered numbers associated with these ruins
    were the numbers five and nine.
    These numbers were also of great significance to the ancients of Egypt and Meso-America.
    Evidence indicates that a "checkerboard" calculator system was being used.
    Examples of this system were found on top of the Great Pyramid and were long used for numerical calculations
    in Meso-America.
    This same checkerboard pattern shows up on the lintel stones of temples built by Celts of Iberian origin.
    Also, according to some astronomers, this pattern served as a calendar regulator
    to measure the sunrise and sunset directions on solstices and equinoxes.
    Other characteristics closely match features at megalithic sites in Peru, the Yucatan, Ireland and Scandinavia.
    Analysis of these enigmatic ancient temples built near Bimini over 12,000 years ago has only just begun.
    Although many maps of the heavenly realm adorn various walls of these mysterious Bimini temples,
    there is an almost complete lack of other markings.
    Of the limited glyphs that do exist, however, several match those found in the famous Altamira Cave in Spain
    (known as the Sistine Chapel of pre-history) which contains the well-known bison painting.
    In addition, there are exact orbital plots of the planets and what seem to have been intricate star shafts,
    metal-coated walls, and intermingled stones of various colors.
    One of the unique features of the ancient temple ruins,
    built near Bimini by an unknown advanced civilization which apparently was thriving
    while most of the rest of the world was plodding through the Stone Ages,
    is that these stones may be far more likely to yield an accurate account of their true age
    than most of the famous megalithic sites around the world.
    There are also instances in which lava has flowed in between some of the temple stones
    which may give scientists an approximate date when submitted to testing.
    The antiquity of the stones almost leaps out at you upon first glance.
    There are hollows which have been left in certain broken stones which have undergone
    such an extensive amount of crystal growth upon their inner surfaces that they now look like the inside of a geode!
    In many cases, the cement that once held the huge stones together is now completely crystallized.
    Some of the massive granite blocks, themselves, now exhibit significant portions,
    which have metamorphosed over the ages to the point where they are no longer even granite.
    But perhaps, most significant of all is the fact that organic matter has been found within a hermetic seal;
    along with unrusted, worked iron.
    The iron began to rust soon after the seal was opened, however,
    which would indicate that the seat had prevented the entry of oxygen for thousands of years.
    The organic matter was in pristine condition and should prove to be an interesting target for dating procedures
    . Other hermetic seals, which have yet to be opened, are know to exist as well.
    Edgar Cayce predicted that just this sort of thing would be discovered.
    These findings not only match Cayce's predictions but Plato's writings
    There are exact orbital plots of the planets and what seem to have been intricate star shafts,
    metal-coated walls, and intermingled stones of various colors (including red, white and black).
    Pyramid explored by Dr. Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970.
    Brown was accompanied by 4 divers who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings,
    unidentified metallic instruments, and a statue holding a "mysterious" crystal containing miniature pyramids.
    The metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there.
    What was discovered was that the crystal amplified energy that passed through it.
    It is made in a method unknown to the scientists who analyzed it.
    It was found in a mysteriously lit up chamber inside the underwater pyramid
    with some kind of ray gun like instrument pointed at it. Kirlian photographs,
    which record impressions beyond our limited range of vision,
    showed an eye inside the crystal not visible to the naked eye.
    What technology could build a long blacktop paved road for hundreds of miles
    that was still in good condition over 10,000 years later!
    This road was found underwater off the East Coast
    by the deep diving submarine Aluminaut and contained magnesium oxide.
    In 1977, a mysterious discovery was made on the floor of the Atlantic
    concerning an unknown technology.
    A 650-foot pyramid was mysteriously lit up, with sparkling white water surrounding it
    that turned deep green, a shocking contrast to the dark black waters at that depth.
    The discovery was photographed by Arl Marahall's expedition off Cay Sal.
    Dr. William Bell's 1958 photos taken on the bottom of the Atlantic
    showed a six-foot spire protruding from a couple of circular gear-like bases
    with peculiar light emanations from the bottom of the shaft.
    Were these the remnants of the Eternal Flame spoken of by the ancients,
    powered by an inter-dimensional cosmic energy taken out of the atmosphere
    by a form of crystal conductor at the apex of pyramids or towers?
    Pyramids larger than any building in the world made in our modern times
    have been found on the bottom the Atlantic Ocean and in China,
    and one in Egypt that our own technology has failed to match.
    These Pyramids have cement that our scientists admit is superior to what we use today.
    The writings of the ancients describe pyramids as Time Capsules
    containing the history and technology of the Empire of the Sun and latter day Atlantis.
    A huge pyramid, in 10,000 feet of Atlantic water, was reported to have been found
    with a pulsating crystal on top of it, by Tony Benik's expedition.
    The group also found an opaque crystal tablet there,
    and reported that when a light was beamed through it, mysterious inscriptions became visible.
    More underwater pyramids were found off Central America, Yucatan, and Louisiana,
    where domes were found in the Straits of Florida.
    A marble Greek style building was found between Florida and Cuba.
    And what about the column that radiated energy Dr. Zink found in the Bahamas
    and Zink also brought up other artifacts from his dives over Atlantis,
    and he was interviewed by Mind International agent Steve Forsberg.
    One of the most amazing finds on the bottom of the Atlantic was reported by Captain Reyes Miraga's crew
    on the salvage ship Talia from Spain.
    They video-taped miles of pillared temples, buildings, and statues and wide curving boulevards,
    with smaller avenues branching out from the center like spokes in a wheel,
    with majestic temples and pyramids.
    Much of this city, as well as the city found off Spain by Dr. Maxine Asher's expedition
    and later by Professor Akayonove's expedition (all photographed),
    show a startling similarity to Plato's description of Atlantis!
    More than 30 separate ruins have been found on the bottom of the Atlantic since 1956,
    and in ancient libraries, several old maps showing Atlantis and its island chain have been found.
    The islands are known as Aryan, Og. Poseid, and Antigua and the nation was Atlan. Garden City, or Poseid,
    was reportedly the capital of a continent stretching from off of North Africa and Europe to off Florida
    with a tropical climate on the western and southern shores, and a cool climate on the north and east.
    Ruins of roads and buildings found off Bimini Island in the 1960's by the photographed
    and published expeditions of Dr. Mansan Valentine. Steven Forsberg,
    co-founder of the Lahaina Times newspaper dove into these ruins in 1982 to witness them first hand.
    Similar ruins were also photographed off Cay Sal in the Bahamas.
    The ruins are of the same construction as the oldest city ever found on land, according;
    to archaeologists, in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia,
    where a calendar was uncovered that shows the exact position of the stars and planets 27,000 years ago.
    This is more than 20,000 years BEFORE the oldest civilizations in school history books!
    Dr. David Zink found in 1957, off the Bahamas coast, a stylized marble head,
    building block cast in a mold and a construction piece drilled by a bit,
    as well as a stone column that he reported radiated energy. Forsberg of M.I.N.D.
    interviewed Dr. Zink and obtained the photographs.

    The deep sea diving submarine Aluminaut discovered a well preserved paved road on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean make of blacktop magnesium oxide, running along the sea floor from Florida to South Carolina.
    Soviet expeditions to the Atlantic Ampere Seamount resulted in photographs of ruins
    destroyed by lava (like the Aztecs and Mayans wrote Atlan was destroyed by).
    This discovery was in the New York Times May 21, 1978.
    The photos were developed by the Academy's Petrovsky Marakuyev
    and reported by the deputy Director of the Soviet Academy of Science's Institute of Oceanography,
    Professor Aksyonove, who also reported ruins found off Cadiz, Spain
    in the same area as Dr., Maxine Asher's previous discovery.
    The1981 expedition of P. Cappellano discovered mysterious ruins with strange symbols on them on the sea floor off the Canary Islands.
    A 1977 report sited a huge pyramid found off Cay Sal in the Bahamas , photographed by Ari Marshall's expedition, about 150 feet underwater. The pyramid was about 650 feet high. Mysteriously, the surrounding water was lit by sparkling white water flowing out of the openings in the pyramid and surrounded by green water, instead of the black water everywhere else at that depth.
    A sunken city about 400 miles off Portugal was found by Soviet expeditions led by Boris Asturua, with buildings made of extremely strong concrete and plastics. He said "the remains of streets suggests the use of monorails for transportation". He added that he brought up a statue.
    Pillars were found on the Atlantic floor in 1969 by Robert Fero and Michael Grumley, a chunk of which was carved from rock NOT found anywhere in that part of the world.

    Heinrich Schilemann, the man who found and excavated the famous ruins of Troy
    {which historians thought was only a legend),
    reportedly left a written account of his discovery of a bronze vase with a metal unknown
    to scientists who examined it, in the famous Priam Treasure.
    Inside it are glyphs in Phoenician stating that it was from King Chronos of Atlantis!
    IDENTICAL pottery was found in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia.
    Twenty researchers, including archaeologists, a marine biologist, geologist, and cartographer
    dove onto ruins on the sea floor off Bimini in 1975 and brought back artifacts
    from which they concluded that the walls and roads were made of materials not found in that part of the world.

    The Piri Reis Map of 1513 is the first surviving map that shows the Americas (the Vinland map may be older but only shows a part of North America). The Piri Reis map shows North America, South America, Greenland and Antarctica which had not yet been discovered.
    Piri Reis was a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century. His passion was cartography, he was always on the lookout for new maps and other such documents. In 1513 a map had been commissioned him.
    Piri Reis was high rank within the Turkish navy which allowed him to have a privileged access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople. He was considered an expert on Mediterranean lands and coastlines, and he even wrote a famous sailing book called Kitabi Bahriye where he described all the details of coastlines, harbors, currents, shallows, bays and straits of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. He died in 1554 or 1555 being beheaded for unknown reasons.
    It is said that in a now-forgotten sea battle he met, among the prisoners, a sailor who claimed to have been sailing along with Columbus in his three journeys to the new world, and that he was one of his pilots. It turned out that Columbus had a map of the lands he was chasing, and that this map now was in the possession of that pilot.
    The admiral Piri Reis got to put hands and eyes on the map; then in 1513 he compiled a world map based on that map and on the other antique charts from his collection - many of which had survived from the days of the Great Library of Alexandria.

    The map had drawn the attention of scholars in 1929 when it had been discovered in the archives of the Imperial Palace in Constantinople.
    The map showed the outline of South America very accurately. This was surprising since Columbus had discovered the New World only 21 years earlier in 1492.
    Notes made by Piri indicated he had based his map on earlier maps, including one consulted by Columbus before his famous voyage.
    This excited the scholars since there had been rumors that there existed a pre-Columbian map of the New World. Piri's claim that he had possessed the "lost map" intrigued historians.
    It wasn't the accuracy of the South American coastline that interested Mallery, though. It was what was shown at the very bottom of the map: a chunk of land that looked very much like Antarctica.
    This was surprising since Antarctica had not been discovered until 1820.
    Even more intriguing was a section of the coastline of this southern continent.
    Part of it looked very much like the coast of Queen Maud Land which was a section of Antarctica.
    The strange thing was that the coast of Queen Maud Land had been covered with a thick sheet of ice for many centuries and its shape was only known now to modern mapmakers through the use of modern seismographic equipment.
    This made Mallory wonder if the Admiral had somehow owned maps that dated back before the ice sheet covered the coast and if the coast had been somehow surveyed from the air.
    Most serious professional geographers, though, rejected Mallery's radical theory without even considering it carefully.
    Professor Charles H. Hapgood, of Keene State College at the University of New Hampshire, did take an interest in the map and Mallory's thoughts. Professor Hapgood was known for his support of unorthodox theories.
    With the help of some of his students, Hapgood did a careful examination of Piri's map and several other old maps and published a book on the subject called Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings.

    The book suggests that at one time in the ancient past there was a world-wide civilization with advanced technology. Though this civilization was destroyed, some of its knowledge survived to wind up in the maps.
    Later, an even more radical theory for Piri's map was advanced from writer Eric Von Daniken. Von Daniken, a supporter of the idea that aliens had visited Earth in the distant past, noted that the map resembled what might be seen from space if you took a picture of Earth from directly over Cairo, Egypt. He suggested that the map was the result of aerial photographs taken from an alien spaceship.
    Critics of Hapgood and Von Daniken offer a more mundane explanation for the map. They start by pointing out that lots of maps from that era displayed a continent at the bottom of the Earth, though none had yet been found.
    There was a general belief going back to the time of the Greeks that all the continents must have been connected at one time. This lead to the belief in a southern continent (Interestingly enough, they were correct.
    The modern theory of plate tectonics supports the idea of single land mass in the very distant past).
    The critics point out that the land mass shown on the map may have a similar coastline to that of Queen Maud Land, but the similarity is not unmistakable. What is on Piri's map, they argue, is just a lucky attempt to display an unknown, but suspected land. The similarity, say critics, is just coincidence.
    They also point out that the map shows South America and Antarctica connected, which they have not been for many millions of years. Also information about weather conditions and animal life in Antarctica as found on the map is completely wrong.
    Other experts speculate that though the first recorded sighting of land in the Antarctica was in 1820, there may have been earlier unreported voyages to the southern reaches.
    Though this might not explain the coastline of Queen Maud Land on the Piri map, it might be the reason that there was such a strong belief in the existence of a southern continent.

    Explorers View 'Lost City' Ruins Under Caribbean
    December 6, 2001 - Reuters
    Explorers using a miniature submarine to probe the sea floor off the coast of Cuba said on Thursday they had confirmed the discovery of stone structures deep below the ocean surface that may have been built by an unknown human civilization thousands of years ago.
    Researchers with a Canadian exploration company said they filmed over the summer ruins of a possible submerged ``lost city'' off the Guanahacabibes Peninsula on the Caribbean island's western tip. The researchers cautioned that they did not fully understand the nature of their find and planned to return in January for further analysis, the expedition leader said on Thursday.

    Piri Reis map

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    300px-Piri_reis_world_map_01.
    magnify-clip.

    Left fragment of the Piri Reis map showing Central and South America shores. In his notes appended to it is written "the map of the western lands drawn by Columbus" [1]
    The Piri Reis map is a pre-modern world map compiled in 1513 from military intelligence by the Ottoman-Turkish admiral and cartographer Piri Reis.
    The half of the map that survives shows the western coasts of Europe and North Africa and the coast of Brazil with reasonable accuracy.
    Various Atlantic islands including the Azores and Canary Islands are depicted, as is the mythical island of Antillia and possibly Japan.
    The historical importance of the map lies in its demonstration of the extent of exploration of the New World by approximately 1510,
    perhaps before others. It used 10 Arabian sources, 4 Indian maps sourced from Portuguese and one map of Columbus.

    [edit] Description

    The map is the extant western third of a world map drawn on gazelle skin, with dimensions reported as
    90 cm × 63 cm,[2][3] 86 cm × 60 cm,[4] 90 cm × 65 cm,[5][6][7] 85 cm × 60 cm,[8][9] 87 cm × 63 cm,[10] and 86 cm × 62 cm.[11]
    The surviving portion primarily details the western coast of Africa and the eastern coast of South America
    . The map was signed by Piri Reis, an Ottoman-Turkish admiral, geographer and cartographer, and dated to the month of Muharram in the Islamic year 919 AH, equivalent to 1513 AD.[12][13]
    It was presented to Ottoman Sultan Selim I in 1517.[4][14] In the map's legend, Piri inscribed that the map was based on about twenty charts and mappae mundi.[15][16][17]
    According to Piri, these maps included eight Ptolemaic maps constructed during the era of Alexander the Great, an Arabic map of India,
    four newly drawn Portuguese maps from Sindh, Pakistan and a map by Christopher Columbus of the western lands. From Inscription 6 on the map:
    From eight Jaferyas of that kind and one Arabic map of Hind [India], and from four newly drawn Portuguese maps which show
    the countries of Sind [now in modern day Pakistan], Hind and Çin [China] geometrically drawn, and also from a map drawn by Qulūnbū [Columbus
    ] in the western region, I have extracted it. By reducing all these maps to one scale this final form was arrived at, so that this map of these lands
    is regarded by seamen as accurate and as reliable as the accuracy and reliability of the Seven Seas[18] on the aforesaid maps."[19]
    There is some scholarly debate over whether the 20 charts and mappae mundi in Piri's inscriptions includes the eight Ptolemaic maps,
    the four Portuguese maps, the Arabic map and the Columbus map.[20]
    From one perspective, the number of charts and mappae mundi used by Piri equals 20,[16][21][22] while in the other, it could mean a total of 34.[23][24][25][26
    ] Some[who?] have claimed that the source maps were found in the ancient Library of Alexandria, based on Piri's allusions to Alexander the Great,
    the founder of Alexandria, Ptolemy I, who ruled Alexandria in the 4th century BC, and Claudius Ptolemy, the Greek geographer and cartographer who lived in Alexandria during the second century AD.[20]

    [edit] History

    The map was discovered serendipitously on 9 October 1929, through the philological work of the German theologian, Gustav Adolf Deissmann (1866-1937).
    He had been commissioned by the Turkish Ministry of Education to catalogue the Topkapı Sarayı library's non-Islamic items.[27]
    At Deissmann's request to search the palace for old maps and charts, the director Halil Edhem (1861-1938) managed to find some disregarded bundles of material,
    which he handed over to Deissmann. Realising that the map might be a unique find, Deissmann showed it to the orientalist Paul Kahle who identified it as a map drawn by Piri Reis.[28]
    The discovery caused an international sensation, as it presented the only then known copy of a world map of Christopher Columbus (1451-1506),[29]

    and was the only 16th century map that showed South America in its proper longitudinal position in relation to Africa.
    Geographers had spent several centuries unsuccessfully searching for a "lost map of Columbus" that was supposedly drawn while he was in the West Indies.[13]
    After reading about the map's discovery in The Illustrated London News, United States Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson contacted the United States Ambassador to Turkey
    Charles H. Sherrill and requested that an investigation be launched to find the Columbus source map, which he believed may have been in Turkey.[30]
    In turn, the Turkish government complied with Stimson's request, but they were unsuccessful in locating any of the source maps.[31]
    The Piri Reis map is currently located in the Library of the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, but is not usually on display to the public.
    The map was depicted on the reverse of the Turkish 10 million lira banknote of 1999-2005[32] and of the 10 new lira banknote of 2005-2009.[33]

    [edit] Charles Hapgood

    Charles Hapgood began studying the map in the middle of the 20th century and published the book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings in 1966.
    Hapgood claims this and other maps support a theory of global exploration by a pre-classical undiscovered civilization.

    He supports this with an analysis of the mathematics of ancient maps and of their accuracy, which he says surpassed instrumentation available at the time of the map's drafting.
    Hapgood argued that owing to the map being assembled from components, the Caribbean section was rotated nearly 90º from the top of South America. He attributed this to either copying from a polar projection, or to fit in the space available by hinging the map at that location and giving it an "alternate north", of which other examples are known in maps of the era.

    [edit] Gregory McIntosh

    Gregory McIntosh, a historian of cartography, has examined the Piri Reis map in depth and published his research in the book The Piri Reis Map of 1513
    (Athens and London: University of Georgia Press, 2000).
    He claims that the depiction of the Caribbean was developed from at least one of Columbus's maps.
    Hispaniola is depicted with a north-south axis similar to depictions of Japan on maps of the same era.
    At the time it was widely believed that the east coast of the Americas was in fact that of Asia. Columbus believed that Japan and Hispaniola were actually the same island
    and Cuba was part of a mainland. The mainland in the extreme northwest is labeled with place-names from Columbus's voyages
    along the coasts of Cuba.
    McIntosh claims the map shows double sets of Virgin Islands because Piri Reis took them from two maps.
    Many of the names of ports and geographic points are found in Columbus's written texts.
    McIntosh, in comparing the Piri Reis map to several other portolan-style maps of the era, found that
    The Piri Reis map is not the most accurate map of the sixteenth century, as has been claimed, there being many,
    many world maps produced in the remaining eighty-seven years of that century that far surpass it in accuracy.
    The Ribero maps of the 1520s and 1530s, the Ortelius map of 1570, and the Wright-Molyneux map of 1599 (‘the best map of the sixteenth century’) are only a few better-known examples.[34]
    McIntosh intended for this conclusion to be part of a direct challenge to Charles Hapgood's theory about the historical roots of the map
    . McIntosh found that many of Hapgood's claims were problematic and that, in many cases, the accuracy of the map as Hapgood
    presents it is exaggerated and that some figures, such as Cuba, Hispaniola, part of Newfoundland, and others have to be rotated or distorted to appear accurately drawn.[35]

    [edit] Gavin Menzies

    Amateur historian Gavin Menzies claims in his book 1421: The Year China Discovered America
    that the southern landmass is indeed the Antarctic coastline and was based on earlier Chinese maps.
    According to Menzies, Admiral Hong Bao charted the coast over 70 years before Columbus as part of a larger expedition
    under the famous Chinese explorer and admiral Zheng He to bring the world under China's tribute system.
    Gregory McIntosh and other cartographers and historians who have examined the map in detail believe the resemblance of the coastline
    to the actual coast of Antarctica to be tenuous. For centuries before the actual discovery of Antarctica, cartographers
    had been depicting a massive southern landmass on global maps based on the theoretical assumption by some that one must exist,
    if only to balance the landmass of the North. It was widely believed that South America and, once its northern coastline was discovered, Australia,
    must be joined to this land mass, which was thought to be very much bigger than the real Antarctica.
    This theoretical southern continent, the Great Southern Land or Terra Australis Incognita (literally Unknown Southern Land),
    in various configurations, was usually shown on maps until the eighteenth century. An alternate view is that the "Antarctic" coast
    is simply the eastern coastline of South America skewed to align east-west due to the inaccurate measurement of longitude or to fit it on the page.[36]
    Hapgood suggests that the Antarctic section of the map was copied at an incorrect scale to the rest of the map
    and resulted in the distortion and enlargement of the continent on several ancient maps.
    This would explain why there is no waterway between South America and Antarctica.
    He suggests several points of continuity between the Piri Reis Map and modern maps of the continent below the ice caps
    . Since the Antarctic continent was not officially sighted until 1820[citation needed]
    and its full coastline was not known until much later; this claim, if true, would require major revisions to the history of exploration,
    settlement, evolution, and technological advancements of the time.[37]
    220px-Piri_Reis_map_interpretation.
    magnify-clip.

    Comparison between a modern projection of South America and Piri Reis's version.
    There are many difficulties in the map of South America, including duplication of rivers.
    Close examination of the coastline supports the alternative theory that the "extra" landmass is simply the South American coast,
    probably explored in secret by Portuguese navigators, and bent round to fit the parchment.
    There are features resembling the basins at the mouth of the Strait of Magellan, and the Falkland Islands;[38]

    Physical Evidence of Atlantis - 2



    City on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off Spain
    - found by Dr. Maxine Asher's expedition in 1973
    UPI Report
    Pyramid explored by Dr. Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970
    . Brown was accompanied by 4 divers who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings
    , unidentified metallic instruments, and a statue holding a "mysterious" crystal containing miniature pyramids. T
    he metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there.
    What was discovered was that the crystal amplified energy that passed through it.
    It is made in a method unknown to the scientists who analyzed it.
    It was found in a mysteriously lit up chamber inside the underwater pyramid
    with some kind of ray gun like instrument pointed at it.
    Kirlian photographs, which record impressions beyond our limited range of vision,
    showed an eye inside the crystal not visible to the naked eye.
    What technology could build a long blacktop paved road for hundreds of miles
    that was still in good condition over 10,000 years later!
    This road was found underwater off the East Coast by the deep diving submarine Aluminaut and contained magnesium oxide.
    In 1977, a mysterious discovery was made on the floor of the Atlantic concerning an unknown technology.
    A 650-foot pyramid was mysteriously lit up, with sparkling white water surrounding it that turned deep green,
    a shocking contrast to the dark black waters at that depth. The discovery was photographed by Arl Marahall's expedition off Cay Sal.
    Dr. William Bell's 1958 photos taken on the bottom of the Atlantic showed a six-foot spire protruding from a couple of circular gear-like bases with peculiar light emanations from the bottom of the shaft. Were these the remnants of the Eternal Flame spoken of by the ancients, powered by an inter-dimensional cosmic energy taken out of the atmosphere by a form of crystal conductor at the apex of pyramids or towers?
    Pyramids larger than any building in the world made in our modern times have been found on the bottom the Atlantic Ocean and in China, and one in Egypt that our own technology has failed to match.
    These Pyramids have cement that our scientists admit is superior to what we use today. The writings of the ancients describe pyramids as Time Capsules containing the history and technology of the Empire of the Sun and latter day Atlantis.
    A huge pyramid, in 10,000 feet of Atlantic water, was reported to have been found with a pulsating crystal on top of it, by Tony Benik's expedition. The group also found an opaque crystal tablet there, and reported that when a light was beamed through it, mysterious inscriptions became visible.
    More underwater pyramids were found off Central America, Yucatan, and Louisiana, where domes were found in the Straits of Florida. A marble Greek style building was found between Florida and Cuba. And what about the column that radiated energy Dr. Zink found in the Bahamas and Zink also brought up other artifacts from his dives over Atlantis, and he was interviewed by Mind International agent Steve Forsberg.
    One of the most amazing finds on the bottom of the Atlantic was reported by Captain Reyes Miraga's crew on the salvage ship Talia from Spain. They video-taped miles of pillared temples, buildings, and statues and wide curving boulevards, with smaller avenues branching out from the center like spokes in a wheel, with majestic temples and pyramids. Much of this city, as well as the city found off Spain by Dr. Maxine Asher's expedition and later by Professor Akayonove's expedition (all photographed), show a startling similarity to Plato's description of Atlantis!
    An urn brought to the surface by Dr. Asher's expedition.
    More than 30 separate ruins have been found on the bottom of the Atlantic since 1956, and in ancient libraries, several old maps showing Atlantis and its island chain have been found. The islands are known as Aryan, Og. Poseid, and Antigua and the nation was Atlan. Garden City, or Poseid, was reportedly the capital of a continent stretching from off of North Africa and Europe to off Florida with a tropical climate on the western and southern shores, and a cool climate on the north and east.
    Ruins of roads and buildings found off Bimini Island in the 1960's by the photographed and published expeditions of Dr. Mansan Valentine. Steven Forsberg, co-founder of the Lahaina Times newspaper dove into these ruins in 1982 to witness them first hand. Similar ruins were also photographed off Cay Sal in the Bahamas. The ruins are of the same construction as the oldest city ever found on land, according; to archaeologists, in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia, where a calendar was uncovered that shows the exact position of the stars and planets 27,000 years ago. This is more than 20,000 years BEFORE the oldest civilizations in school history books!
    Similar underwater ruins found off Morocco and photographed 50 to 60 feet underwater.
    Dr. David Zink found in 1957, off the Bahamas coast, a stylized marble head,


    building block cast in a mold and a construction piece drilled by a bit,
    as well as a stone column that he reported radiated energy.
    Forsberg of M.I.N.D. interviewed Dr. Zink and obtained the photographs.
    A ruined harbor like complex discovered on the sea floor off Bimini Captain John Alexander.
    The deep sea diving submarine Aluminaut discovered a well preserved paved road
    on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean make of blacktop magnesium oxide, running along the sea floor from Florida to South Carolina.
    Temple pillars, buildings, statues, wide curving boulevards with smaller avenues branching out like spokes in a wheel,
    majestic temples and pyramids videotaped by Captain Reyes Miraga on the Spanish named salvage ship "Talia".
    A huge 11 room pyramid found 10,000 feet under water in the mid Atlantic Ocean with a huge crystal top, as reported by Tony Benlk.
    Several acres of white marble-like ruins found on tile ocean floor off Cuba reported by Lieceser Hemingway.
    Mysterious dome structures reportedly seen in clear water by several pilots in the Straits of Florida.
    Soviet expeditions to the Atlantic Ampere Seamount resulted in photographs of ruins destroyed by lava
    (like the Aztecs and Mayans wrote Atlan was destroyed by).
    This discovery was in the New York Times May 21, 1978.
    The photos were developed by the Academy's Petrovsky Marakuyev and reported by
    the deputy Director of the Soviet Academy of Science's Institute of Oceanography, Professor Aksyonove,
    who also reported ruins found off Cadiz, Spain in the same area as Dr., Maxine Asher's previous discovery.
    1981 expedition of P. Cappellano discovered mysterious ruins
    with strange symbols on them on the sea floor off the Canary Islands.

    part 2 of 2

    1977 report of a huge pyramid found off Cay Sal in the Bahamas,
    photographed by Ari Marshall's expedition, about 150 feet underwater.
    The pyramid was about 650 feet high.
    Mysteriously, the surrounding water was lit by sparkling white water flowing out of the openings in the pyramid
    and surrounded by green water, instead of the black water everywhere else at that depth.
    The foundations of a 100 by 75 foot structure photographed on the sea bottom off Andros Island.
    A sunken city about 400 miles off Portugal found by Soviet expeditions led by Boris Asturua,
    with buildings made of extremely strong concrete and plastics.
    He said "the remains of streets suggests the use of monorails for transportation".
    He added that he brought up a statue.
    Pillars found on the Atlantic floor in 1969 by Robert Fero and Michael Grumley,
    a chunk of which was carved from rock NOT found anywhere in that part of the world.
    20. A road off the Bahamas explored by Dr. Manson Valentine.
    Dimitri Rebikoff, using his underwater platform and a special collecting lens,
    reported ruins found encircling an underwater freshwater spring.
    Marble Acropolis underwater across five acres of fluted columns raised on pillars.
    Heinrich Schilemann, the man who found and excavated the famous ruins of Troy
    {which historians thought was only a legend),
    reportedly left a written account of his discovery of a bronze vase
    with a metal unknown to scientists who examined it,
    in the famous Priam Treasure.
    Inside it are glyphs in Phoenician stating that it was from King Chronos of Atlantis!
    IDENTICAL pottery was found in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia.
    Twenty researchers, including archaeologists, a marine biologist, geologist,
    and cartographer dove onto ruins on the sea floor off Bimini in 1975
    and brought back artifacts from which they concluded that the walls and roads were made of materials
    not found in that part of the world.

    Dr. Schliemann's Atlantis

    I will start with Dr. Heinrich Schliemann.
    What I have found is based on an account of Dr. Schliemann's grandson, Dr. Paul Schliemann,
    at Internet Sacred Text Archive, "How I Found the Lost Atlantis, The Source of All Civilization" (1912).
    The article appeared on October 20th, 1912, in New York American.
    I cannot testify for the accuracy of the information concerning Atlantis, but I find it quite an interesting story.
    Dr. Heinrich Schliemann discovered the great Mycenean civilization whose history was mentioned by Homer.
    In 1873, he discovered the ruins of Troy, at Hissarlık (Turkey) and the "Treasure of Priam".
    Quoting from Dr. Schliemann's letter
    "Whoever opens this must solemnly swear to carry out the work which I have left unfinished.
    I have come to the conclusion that Atlantis was not only a great territory between America and the west coast of Africa and Europe,
    but the cradle of all our civilization as well."
    vase. Photos of owl vase and objects: Internet Sacred Text Archive.
    The letter contains directions and information about the research he's done. "[At Troy]
    I found among the treasure a peculiar bronze vase, of great size.
    Within it were several pieces of pottery, various small images of peculiar metal, coins of the same metal and objects made of fossilized bone.
    Some of these objects and the bronze vase were engraved with a sentence in Phoenician hieroglyphics.
    (*my note: Phoenicians lived 2500 years ago) The sentence read 'From the King of Chronos of Atlantis'."
    atl_objects. In 1883 he said he found in Louvre a collection of objects excavated from Tiahuanaco, in Central America.
    The pottery had the same shape and material and objects of fossilized bone which reproduced line by line those which he had found
    in the bronze vase of the "Treasure of Priam". However, these vases did not bear Phoenician hieroglyphics or any other writing.
    "I secured pieces of these simulacrums from Tiahuanaco and subjected them to chemical and microscopic analysis.
    These tests proved that both the Central American vases and those from Troy had been made from the same peculiar clay,

    and I learned later, further and definitively, that this clay does not exist, either in old Phoenicia or in Central America."
    The material was a combination of platinum, aluminum, and copper.
    Later on he found in the Museum at St. Petersburg (Russia) one of the oldest papyrus rolls in existence.
    "It was written in the reign of Pharaoh Sent (*my note: now called "Sened"), of the Second Dynasty, or 4,571 years B.C.
    (*my note: nowadays books mention Second Dynasty to cover 2890-2686 B.C.).
    It contains a description of how the Pharaoh sent out an expedition 'to the West' in search of traces of the 'Land of Atlantis',
    whence '3,350 years ago the ancestors of the Egyptians arrived carrying with themselves all the wisdoms of their native lands'."
    (*my note: I'd be curious to see that scroll.)
    The expedition returned five years later and reported that the land, the people, and the objects were gone.
    Another papyrus, in the same museum, written by Manetho, an Egyptian historian, mentions a period of 13,900 years
    as the reign of the sages of Atlantis. "An inscription which I excavated at the Lion Gate at Mycenae in Crete recites that
    Misor, from whom, according to the inscription, the Egyptians were descended, was the child of Taaut or Thoth, the God of History,
    and that Taaut was the emigrated son of a 'priest of Atlantis, who having fallen in love with a daughter of King Chronos,
    escaped and ended after many wanderings in Egypt.'
    He built the first temple at Sais and there he taught the wisdom of his native land."
    Dr. Paul Schliemann continues, as his grandfather requested, by breaking the owl-headed vase: "
    I was not a little startled when out the bottom of the vase slipped a square of white, silver-like metal upon which were drawn strange figures
    and an inscription which were not like any hieroglyphs or writings I had ever seen.
    These were on the head side of the coin or medal
    On the obverse side was engraved in ancient Phoenician, "Issued in the Temple of Transparent Walls."
    How did the metal get in the vase? I do not know.
    The neck was too small for its insertion, but there it was and it had been imbedded in the clay of the bottom
    and my grandfather had evidently known it was there.
    If the vase was from Atlantis the piece must have come from it too
    . And yet my examination showed me that the Phoenician letters had been cut in after the object
    had been under the die that made the face figures.
    This is a mystery to me even now. But there is the evidence.
    Besides this, I found in the collection, the other material objects which my grandfather had said came from Atlantis.
    One was a ring of the same peculiar metal as the coins or the medals.
    There was a strange looking elephant of fossilized bone, an extremely archaic vase
    and some other objects which I will not discuss now.
    The map by which the Egyptian captain had sought for Atlantis was there too.
    I prefer to save these other objects for my extended work--nor could I,
    under the instructions of my grandfather, tell of them. It is sufficient to say that no scientist can controvert them.
    The owl vase, the archaic vase, the bronze vase and the ring have the Phoenician inscription. The elephant and coins did not."
    Then Dr. Paul Schliemann continues to the west coast of Africa, and finds the shore covered with volcanic action.
    "Some distance in from the shore those evidences stopped. For many miles it was as though the volcanic action
    had chopped away land from the coast. Here I found an object of inestimable value to my research.
    It was a head of a child done in the same metal as that which formed the ring and the medals
    . It was imbedded in an encrustation of volcanic rock of great age. The chemical analysis showed it to be of exactly the same strange alloy I have described."
    "I pass on to the translation of a Maya manuscript which is part of the famous collection of Le Plongeon, the Troano manuscript. It can be seen in the British Museum. It reads:
    "In the year of 6 Kan, on the 11 Muluc, in the Month Zac, there ocurred terrific earthquakes which continued without interruption until the 13 Chuen.
    The country of the hills of mud, the Land of Mu, was sacrificed. Being twice up heaved it disappeared during the night,
    being continually shaken by the fires of the under earth. Being confined these caused the land to sink and rise several times and in various places.
    At last the surface gave way, and then ten countries were torn asunder and scattered.
    They sank with their 64,000,000 of inhabitants 8,000 years before the writing of this book."
    In the records of the old Buddhistic Temple at Lhasa there is to be seen an ancient Chaldean inscription written about 2,000 years B.C. It reads:
    "When the star Bal fell on the place where is now only sea and sky the Seven Cities with their Golden Gates
    and Transparent Temples quivered and shook like the leaves of a tree in storm.
    And behold a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces.
    Agony and cries of the multitude filled the air. They sought refuge in their temples and citadels.
    And the wise Mu, the hieratic of Ra-Mu, arose and said to them: 'Did not I predict all this?'
    And the women and the men in their precious stones and shining garments lamented: 'Mu, save us.'
    And Mu replied: 'You shall die together with your slaves and your riches and from your ashes will arise new nations.
    If they forget they are superior, not because of what they put on, but of what they put out, the same lot will befall them!'
    Flame and smoke choked the words of Mu. The land and its inhabitants were torn to pieces and swallowed by the depths in a few months.


    II. The Bahamas Hysteria (aka Underwater Amusement Parks)

    How did it all begin? Help yourself first with the Bahamas map.
    In 1957, Dr. David Zink found, off the Bahamas coast, a stylized marble head, a building block cast in a mold
    , a stone column that 'radiated energy', and a few more things. He was interviewed at the time by Steven Forsberg, from M.I.N.D. International Research Agency,
    and they obtained the photographs (or so it is being said).
    David D. Zink was not a scientist, but a former English teacher and an Edgar Cayce fan.

    He was accompanied by a psychic, Carol Huffstickler, and it seems they were hunting for the remains of Atlantis.
    In 1958, Dr. William Bell took photos on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean of a six-foot spire. There were light emanations from the bottom of the shaft.
    In 1969, Robert Fero and Michael Grumley found pillars on the Atlantic floor.
    It's being said that the rock from which parts of them were made was not found in that part of the world.
    Now... I said I wouldn't mention Edgar Cayce, the prophet, but there is no way around it, if we want to look at the facts objectively.
    mapbimini.
    In one of his books, Cayce says: "A portion of the temples may yet be discovered
    under the slime of ages and seawater, near what is known as Bimini off the coast of Florida. Also Poseida will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again.
    Expect it in 68 and 69, not so far away." bimini18.
    What followed? I'll tell you a well-known story.
    In 1968, two commercial pilots, Capt. Robert Brush and co-pilot Trigg Adams,
    spotted a rectangular feature in the shallow waters off Andros. It seems that the two reported the sightings to J. Mason Valentine and Dimitri Rebikoff.
    J. Mason Valentine had a BA and a Ph.D. in zoology, from Yale.
    He was a college lecturer, a research associate of Honolulu's Bishop Museum, and an explorer.
    Dimitri Rebikoff was a French oceanographer and underwater surveyor. Some say Valentine and Rebikoff were already supporters of Cayce,
    prior to the discovery. However, later on, Valentine denied the 'accusations'.
    The structure the pilots had seen was first called 'temple'. It was rectangular, 34 by 20 meters and had an east-west orientation.
    The limestone blocks were perfectly laid and about a meter thick.
    After the news had been announced in the newspapers, the structure turned out to be, according to some scientists, a sponge pen.
    bim_road1. On September 2nd, 1968, Valentine dived and discovered one of the most controversial structures:
    "The Bimini Road". The 'road' is found about half a mile (800 meters) out from Paradise Point, Bimini North Island.
    It's found in five meters of water, and its length is of 638 meters. You can see its drawing on the left side, and an aerial view below.
    The blocks have smooth upper surfaces. The road runs parallel to the beach line, then makes a 90-degree turn in the direction of the beach, in a reversed "J" manner.
    The blocks continue for another 110 meter, then the disappear under the sands.
    To support the theory that this is a man-made structure, evidence of other structures have been found near the 'road':
    fallen monoliths and a three-meter ring of large stones.
    Also, evidence of human occupation was found in the waters of the Little Bahama Bank (Cay Sal Bank), at the south-western corner of the Bahama chain.
    bim_road2.
    In 1974, Dr. David Zink went on an expedition to survey the mysterious forms off Bahamas shore.

    He produced a drawing of the 'road' and of the way the stones joined
    . Also, he took the measurements of each rock almost.
    The stones are said to be "three by four meters in size and about seventy centimeters thick".
    In his defense, as an answer to the scientists' claims that the stones were nothing else
    but 'beach rock', he said: "the ocean floor is essentially level, not sloping",
    as it might be the case with beach rock.
    In 1978, the structure was examined by the French figure of Jacques Cousteau,
    accompanied by Dr. David Zink, in an expedition trying to locate Atlantis.
    The problem that rose again was: are they man-made or natural? While Zink continued claiming the former, Cousteau didn't expose his views.
    bimini13.

    Scientists made their point right away; according to them, the formation is natural, a result of the water being supersaturated with calcium carbonate. A continual deposition of calcium carbonate sediment is responsible for the cementation process,
    which had actually built the whole Bahama Banks.
    This calcium concentration helps with the rapid formation of limestone beach rock
    . Sea-level has been constantly rising since 15,000 B.C., and for 600-700 years it has witnessed a continuous fluctuation,
    that accounts for the parallel, linear 'road'.
    Apparently, the different levels of water, the sun exposure, and the calcium carbonate are the true 'builders' of the 'road'.
    (Below you can see three examples of natural formation of beach rock.) beachrock3. beachrock. beachrock2.
    Samples were taken from the core of the rocks, in a way to show the orientation of each block from where the sample
    had been taken. It turned out that the pebbles contained in the blocks were gradually decreasing in size,
    which means that the rocks were once part of a 'single ribbon of beach rock' (Eugene A. Shinn, geologist).
    Furthermore, the Bahamas sank gradually after the ice melt after the last Ice Age, between 8000 and 3000 BC.
    For many, the only remaining problem is related to the pattern of the rocks and the shape of the rocks itself.
    However, I will quote from a 1992 article, "Quest for Atlantis", written by Vanda Osmon, researcher at Joy Travel:

    "I located Dr. David Zink in 1988, and we agreed to create a program on Bimini with Joan Hanley.[...]
    During the 1989 project, our group headed out for Paradise Point looking for the ancient stones in the vast ocean.[...]
    We were amazed at the incredible site we saw. large rectangular boulders far more impressive than we had imagined
    - all fitted neatly in rows extending beyond our sight. Later during the conference while conducting aerial fly-bys with Dimitri Rebikoff as pilot,
    members of the flight observed a mysterious fish-like mound, over 500 feet long, in the mist of the mangrove swamp."
    To read the rest of the article, check the link above.
    That concludes the 'Bimini Road' story.
    If we are to believe Charles Berlitz in his book, "Atlantis: The Lost Continent Revealed", and Dr. Ray Brown, the person 'interviewed', then we end up with this story: In 1970, Dr. Ray Brown, a naturopathic practitioner and lecturer from Mesa (Arizona), was diving in the Berry Islands, Bahamas, with five other divers, looking for Spanish treasure galleons. He was familiar with the area, for he had been there before.
    To quote him: "[...] We saw that our compasses were spinning and our manometers were not giving readings. We took off north- east from the island. It was murky but suddenly we could see outlines of buildings under the water. It seemed to be a large exposed area of an underwater city. We were five divers and we all jumped in and dove down, looking for anything we could find. As we swam on, the water became clear. I was close to the bottom at 135 feet and was trying to keep up with the diver ahead of me. I turned to look toward the sun through the murky water and saw a pyramid shape shinning like a mirror. Thirty-five to forty feet from the top was an opening. I was reluctant to go inside... but I swam anyway. The opening was like a shaft debouching into an inner room. I saw something shinning. It was a crystal, held by two metallic hands. I had on my gloves and I tried to loosen it. It became loose. As soon as I grabbed it I felt this was the time to get out and not come back."
    In the center of the room there was a slab and on the pyramid slab was a crystal held by two hands. The hands seemed to be made of copper. A metallic rod was hanging down from the ceiling and its end was a multi-faceted red gem, pointing to the crystal. He removed the crystal and according to some, he still has it and shows it to lecture audiences. The crystal is spherical, with three pyramid images inside, one smaller than the other. "When the crystal is held, a throbbing sensation is experienced, whether by autosuggestion or some other quality inherent in the object".
    The crystal seemed to have been tested by the University of Florida and the result was: the crystal amplifies energy that passed through it. Oh, forgot to mention, the Berry Island is part of the famous "Bermuda Triangle".
    It seems that more crystals like this have been discovered. In 1927, F.A.Mitchell-Hedges found a skull in a pyramid at Lubaat'un, a Mayan city. What happened with it, I don't know, but it's a bit weird how suck astonishing discoveries are not broadcast, made public to a wide audience. Let alone the scientists who should be running after the crystals to get a second look at them.
    Well, I say, that's that; I tell you a story which I've read in many places, coming from lots of sources, but obviously, the main one is Brown, and then Berlitz. You have to forgive me for being a bit skeptical, but I'd like some more experts to test the crystal and I'd also like to see a full coverage of the issue in a good newspaper or magazine.
    The following information is given as I have found it, and I wouldn't bet on its accuracy, not until I find conclusive evidence. So take it as I have found it.
    According to Charles Berlitz again, the US Marine and British Admiralty charts show 'pyramids' at 23 deg 26 mins N and 79 deg 43 min W (North of Cuba, off Cay Sal) in 1500 feet of water, that rises suddenly to 42 feet. Also, a similar kind of rise occurs at 23 deg 34 mins N and 80 deg W (North of Cuba) (you might want to check with a large map for darker spots in the water).
    In 1970's, the Italian diver R. Rola discovered somewhere off Bahamas Islands four long stone-made columns, having a cylindrical shape. They were similar to the Egyptian columns.
    In 1978, Ari Marshall photographed a 650-foot pyramid at about 1500 feet underwater, off Cay Sal.
    The existence of the pyramid had been reported first in 1977.
    He saw flashes of light, which could have been, according to him, energy or gaseous emissions. The surrounding water was green, not black, even at night.
    In 1981, P. Cappellano's expedition discovered mysterious ruins bearing strange symbols on the sea floor off the Canary Islands.
    In 1982, Herbert Sawinski, explorer, diver, and chairman of the Museum of Science and Archeology in Fort Lauderdale,
    found and photographed stone pavements at a depth of 25 feet, in the North of Cuba.
    The main wall continued for a quarter of a mile out to sea, then it disappeared into 2500 feet of water.
    Under submerged rocks they found a 'sunken quarry, complete with shaped blocks of stone till inside it".
    The remains were on a plateau which was "60 miles on each side of a lopsided triangle between Straits of Florida
    and the Santaren and Nicholas Channels".
    It establishes the boundaries of what could have been a large island that could support many inhabitants.
    Off Cuba, Liecester Hemingway reported the existence of acres of white marble-like ruins.

    III. Other Discoveries

    In 1967, the Nikolai Seleznev's "Aluminaut" investigated Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina's shores
    and found an enormous 'highway', at 1000 meters under the sea level, having a length of more than 250 kilometers
    and a width of 20 meters. The submarine was able to use the road after the crew installed the wheels.
    The 'highway' was a paved road made of blacktop magnesium oxide and it was found on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
    (like I said, I'd appreciate some pictures and evidence, but 'Fat Chance' strikes again.)
    A Soviet Expedition led by Boris Asturua, found a sunken city at 400 miles off Portugal.
    Asturua took a statue with him and on his return he declared that 'the remains of streets suggests the use of monorails for transportation".
    Andros Islands - a foundation of a structure, 100 by 75 feet, on the bottom of the ocean.
    How about Spain?
    According to New York Times, May 21, 1978, another Soviet Expedition to the Atlantic took place and resulted in photographs of ruins destroyed by lava.
    The discovery was reported by Prof. Akasyonove, who had previously reported ruins in Cadiz, Spain.
    These ruins were first witnessed by Talia's (Spain), salvage ship's crew. Captain Reyes Miraga and his men
    took footage of pillared temples, buildings, and statues, wide curving boulevards and avenues, temples and pyramids.
    At the moment, Dr. Maxine Asher is investigating the area in search or Atlantis, but we will be back with this later.
    Mid Atlantic Ocean - Tony Benik's expedition discovers in 10,000 feet of water,
    a huge pyramid with a pulsating crystal on top of it.
    The opaque crystal tablet that they had found was showing mysterious inscriptions when light was passed through it.
