It's no secret many of us believe some pyramids are much older than the proposed dating ages.

Let's forget the Egyptian pyramids for now because even the oldest pyramid we already found might be too recent compared to the new findings.


Sunken city found near the coast of Cuba. A group of Canadian researchers, led by Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, discovered the ruins of the ancient city. Sunken city was found in 700 m off the coast of Cuba by an underwater robot. On the images, obtained by using a robot, researchers have found the remains of monumental structures, including four large pyramids as well as shape, resembling a Sphinx and several monoliths with inscriptions. According to Pauline Zalitzki, the town was established in the preclassical period in the history of civilizations of Central America and the Caribbean Islands. The ruins are at least 1.5-2 thousand years old, experts believe. But also not rejected more ancient origin. The discovery is kept secret . ancient-origins.net

What Happened to the Sunken City of Cuba?

This is just a small reference but things might get really interesting soon. Now that the embargo is gone, scientific expeditions might be able to investigate those findings.

Underwater Pyramid City Discovered Near Cuba


I was going to dedicate more time before posting this but I just wanted to trigger a new investigation topic for the ATS community to do some research on.

Would be awesome if we could map this on our celestial starchart to see which of the constellations this city was when it thrived..
Anyone want to take a guess? The Canadian kid needs some support to make his south american map bigger..

From the article:

"Estimating that it would have taken 50,000 years for such structures to have sunken to the depth at which they were said to be found, Iturralde added "50,000 years ago there wasn't the architectural capacity in any of the cultures we know of to build complex buildings." A specialist in underwater archaeology at Florida State University added "It would be cool if they were right, but it would be real advanced for anything we would see in the New World for that time frame. The structures are out of time and out of place."


Not able to watch the video right now, but wow! What a diving expedition that would be!!

Is it under water because of man made global warming?

Or were we just in an ice age?

there are many threads on ATS about this, if i recall correctly it has been shown to be a natural phenomenon.
plus any thing that Linda Moulton Howell tuns with is 99.9% bs check her site.

It was completely because of man made global warming because back then there were 14+ billion people on earth. They just moved away... SMH.

I've been away from ATS for a long time. I was almost sure the first news might have been posted here already. However the new details are more striking. The pyramids were discovered in 2001 but a lot has changed since then.

Not to mention that according to the ocean dynamics and the way oceans covered the land where the pyramids are located, the pyramids would have to be more than 150'000 years old.

The already "well known" Cuban underwater city might become very famous soon.

I'm sorry for the bad posts but ATS changed very much since the last time I posted here.

Although some conspiracy theorists have suggested that either Paulina Zelitsky’s findings from 2004 or 2005 were suppressed by Teh Military or she was prevented from returning to the site, again by Teh Military, in reality, the story simply went cold. Despite initial enthusiasm in some quarters, including from the Cuban marine geologist Manuel Iturralde-Vinent, experts were not convinced that Paulina Zelitsky had really discovered a sunken city. Zelitsky continues to work as an oceanographic engineer based in Ontario (Canada) and has not announced any plans since 2004 to return to the site. Although some may see this as evidence that she has been warned off it, it is more likely that she has been unable to persuade anyone to finance an expedition in search of something that in all likelihood doesn’t exist. The story was given a new lease of life thanks to its exposure in Ancient Aliens, but no new information about it has emerged. After the initial flurry of excitement, once scientists began to look critically at the data, especially the sonar images, the story could be seen to be nothing more than hype. For anyone outside the small band of “alternative researchers” and New Age true believers, the story simply died for lack of evidence. But when did a lack of evidence ever stop woo-woos making unsupported claims?


So actually nothing there but rocks!

Fixed your video for this thread. For future reference, you cannot post the entire YouTube link, only the part that comes after the = using the Share Link, which in this case is egXg_2gLWvs. Why it's this way I'll never know but it is what it is.

thank you for correcting my post.

Regarding the nature of the finding, it's not clear to me what might be there.

Another point of view:
wikipalapp.com - Cuban underwater city

Cuban underwater city refers to a site thought by some to be a submerged granite structural complex off the coast of the Guanahacabibes peninsula in the Pinar del Río Province of Cuba.

First I cannot calculate the ocean progression there. Is is 50'000 or 150'000?

On the other hand, saying that it's impossible for those structures to exist because human technology wouldn't allow it it not enough for me.

NO it has NOT been shown to be a natural phenomenon, it has however had the old it is a stone argument used against it by the same crowd as usual whom fall back on that when all else fail's though this time they had to get a little more clever about it and even then the posited explanation simply does not cut it, it is essentially a theoretical observation on how nature COULD have created it the same as the idea of a room full of chimp's and typewriter's if given long enough randomly hitting the key's producing the collected work's of shakespear, in other word's it is a stupid explanation which tried to explain an artificial allignment and obvious construction as natural erosion caused by underwater current's (what? how many current's flowing in how many direction's?) and other complex action's.

The same argument was used the other day to deny that geometrically and evenly spaced tall pyramid structures in the Amazon are natural claiming they are sand stone formation's and that too was patently wrong, in fact I shall go one over on that and posit something you WILL find ridiculous about them www.abovetopsecret.com...

Well over a decade ago back when we had early Sky analogue satellite we in england were able to recieve several german satallite TV station's and one of them used to stream feed's of the earth taken from space, I used to record them on my old VHS video recorder and one such feed showed these same structures, there position in relation to the Andes as seen from space in that sea of green and also in relation to those structures there was a bow shaped mark in the jungle, if it was what it looked like which was the image of what appeared to be a gigantic damn far larger than any we have built (though it could also have been the edge of a crater) and if it was and our building method's of using the arch of a damn to hold back water apply then it was obviously constructed to stop water flowing TOWARD the west of south america TOWARD the Andes but whatever that mark (discolouration of the forest) was it was EAST of those structures and very large but totally overgrown by the jungle and probably buried under the ground as well, whatever body of water it once damned if it was a damn must have been silted up and overgrown.

So since I had seen that and I have a passing interest in Geological process I considered long before I became a member of ATS, indeed long before the internet was the wide spread thing that it is today what could have TILTED the south american continent and reversed the angle of it from west to east, Mid Atlantic ridge instability, Ice pressure on the northern hemisphere causing subcrustal magma displacement toward the equator of the plant and upward thrusting it like a ball with a little more air in it followed by rapid ice melting causing a pressure void near the east coast of south and north america, west coast of europe and africa as the magma was able to flow back northward and the increase of ocean weight as the water form the glaciation melt poured back into the ocean, the east coast of the south american plate sliding over a proto continent or extremely thickened and ancient area of pacific plate.

The mechanic's are simple, the continent of south america dipped to the east and rose to the west cataclysmically sometime within the past 15000 years or so, a dual tidal wave of unimaginable size raced across both the atantic and the pacific, the Altiplana with the strange land locked harbour of Puma Punku and the city of Tiwanaku was thrust upward it's fjord like bay becoming trapped at high altitude and forming lake titicaca, west of the coastal mountain range we know as the ande's sea bed was lifted upward forming the west coast of south american with it's desert's and it's odd geology, the east coast meanwhile along with this city off cuba was plunged into the depth's by an equal altitude and land became sea bed.

Simple, horrifying, linked to a huge flood and why civilization was wiped off the face of the earth and you can't find it, it was simply all washed away or it remain's are now mostly under the water, except for a few ruin's that many here claim to be far younger than they are such as Tiwanaku and Puma Punku, of course they were used as ceremonial sites long after the cataclysm but maybe not by the same people's, were people had lived became uninhabitable, those that survived and were farmer's probably starved and the formerly barren arctic land's of europe and north america slowly recovered so that one day there descendant's would rise again with no knowledge of what had come before?.

(the alternative is that the Continent tilted over 65 million years ago but that is too old for what I observed in My opinion so I believe it was far more recent and this belief was strengthened by this discovery off cuba, how does a city sink that far in that time, a mixture of continental tilting, rapid or slow both work, natural sinking of the land surface due to magma pressure dropping below the crust and rising sea level's pushing down on the now sunken land as well as the ocean bed further way which also pull's it downward)

Of course those that deny this also deny this,
news.bbc.co.uk...
en.wikipedia.org...

And then when you go back to this other thread and listen to the faulty reasoning behind why people say they are natural and have a think about it, well there is a vested interest in NOT seeing ruin's that can not be explained, it is the see no evil atitude like the blind monkey of the chinese proverb, if it does not fit there world view it does not exist, the problem is that it DOES exist.

Here's your video,



Here's the sonar scans and some pictures, uploaded 2008 there's more if you follow the links at Youtube, and no doubt at least one thread on the subject here at ATS.



ETE, estimated at the time, 50,000 years. That's a big call.
To add, these time zones here are most peculiar, I'll figure it out someday.

At more than 2,000 feet? Probably not. The end of the last glacial period raised sea levels about 300 feet.

Yeah, she's credulous. This particular site may be bogus, but you can't deny there have been other underwater sites that are much more promising. The overall question to be answered, though, is how did they get underwater?

wasn't there something yrs ago,the bermuda highway or such? Huge sq blocks laid out for miles? As a side note,there is a place up in northern arizona,a canyon,the far wall looks like a kid stacked up building blocks in a brickwork pattern,but the blocks look to be 40-50 foot square.I didn't get a close up of it,but it looks like almost no gap between them.To an uninformed person,you'd imagine they were cut and placed there...not saying it was aliens,but....you know where it's going
