Has Atlantis Been Discovered?
Two marine biologists working off the coast of Cuba have obtained photographs taken by a submersible robot that show several giant pyramids and sphinxes sitting at the bottom of the ocean, just within the boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle.
According to a report by Arclein of Terra Forming Terra, Cuban Subsea Pyramid Complex, the evidence discovered by Pauline Zalitzki and Paul Weinzweig suggests that an ancient city was inundated and sunk into the sea. This theory is almost exactly the same as the story of the lost underwater city, Atlantis.
Disclose.tv states that the event may have occurred towards the end of the last Ice Age. It was at this time when the Arctic ice caps melted, causing sea levels to rise and flush down a series of islands and even island continents.
From Arclein: “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.”
“This would have produced an orthogonal pressure forcing subsidence to either East or West. Since the ridge between Cuba and Yucatan is the natural point of weakness between the Gulf subsidence basin and the Caribbean subsidence basin, it naturally subsided deeply. The driver for all this was the hydrostatic changes brought about by both the original crustal shift of 12,900 years ago that I have called the Pleistocene Nonconformity and the slow uplift of the Hudson Bay Basin brought about by the ending of the Ice Age.”
Journalist Luis Mariano Fernandez says that this underwater collection of weathered massive structures was first discovered decades ago, but research was halted due to the Cuban Missile Crisis.
“The U.S. government discovered the alleged place during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the sixties, Nuclear submarines cruising in the Gulf (in deep sea) met pyramid structures. They immediately shut down the site and took control of him and the objects, in order that it will not come to Russians hands.”
But a new research team headed by Weinzweig and Zalitzki has re-discovered the ruins of ancient buildings buried 600 feet below the ocean. They have also come across a series of ancient symbols found both on the underwater structures and on various beaches on the island of Cuba. This has led them to the conclusion that Cuba was once the vestige of a moderately-advanced ancient civilization that erected these pyramids and sphinxes.
Zalitzki and Weinzweig estimate that the underwater pyramids are of a size similar to that of the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. They believe that the pyramids were constructed with stones that weighed several hundred tons.
Fernandez spoke with a scientist about the likelihood of the ruins being those of Atlantis.
“…in the Yucatan cultures today is possible that what still remains of the aborigines of those places perhaps the Olmecs or some very primitive civilization of Yucatan, the northern part of Central America—originated according to them on an island that sank by a cataclysm. This island is called Atlanticú.”
The scientists compared the stone monoliths, symbols and inscriptions with the relics of ancient civilizations we have so far collected, and concluded that these structures were most likely constructed by the Olmecs. The Olmecs are said to have lived in Central America or within a close proximity to Mexico.
It looks like the Olmecs had traveled to Cuba to turn the island into a symbol of their dominance, almost like a trophy room reserved for their most prized creations.
