If you find archaeological interesting then check out this Youtube video showing ancient cities around the world under the sea. Also pay attention to the numerous pyramids underwater, some much larger than the ones in Egypt.

enjoy,

This is bizarre....when were all these discovered?? I remember that they had found what appeared to be the remains of an ancient city underwater and some speculated that it might have been Atlantis, but that was it. Now all of a sudden there are all these underwater cities? So weird...

Most discoveries were made within the last 20 to 30 years, some sooner than others due to technology.

The seas and oceans are the final frontier on this planet and have not been examined as the land.

You can see the that experts were used in each field of building like stone cutting, metallurgy, paints, various artists, roads and water systems that were developed as far back as the Sumerians....

There are still many unanswered questions about mankind and the answers lie underneath the water.

Another good info is most ancient cities underwater lie off ALL coastlines around the world in water less than 200 feet deep.

Clickbait.

CGI and drawings.

there is actually quite abit of our history underwater. rising water levels have been a trend for a long time and many cities rest under hundreds of feet of water today.

That damn global warming, if only they had Al Gore back then to save their cities.

The Mediterranean sea is slowly getting deeper due to the weight of the water which itself may suggest it may be younger than is currently regarded to be the case and may have been a dry, even habitable valley and far more recently than is currently thought, How long ago the Isthmus of Gibraltar actually collapsed is estimated at over 5 million years by most geologists but it is intriguing to reference the Greek Legend of Scylla and Charybdis and wonder if it could have happened within human ancestral memory?.
There are actually scores of sunken city's in the Mediterranean and many other suggestive site's such as mine's and smelting site's, there are even claim's of a huge sunken island in the Mediterranean that has a huge wall made of stone's larger than the great stone at Baalbek.
This is not a scientific web page but it is a well referenced one with many anecdotal tale's some of which I have no doubt are absolutely true.
www.beforeus.com...

Now the beyond the Med in the Atlantic there are a great many island's that were once sizable low lying land mass during the ice age, during the second world war the US used the shortest route between the America's and Africa to fly supplies for the Allied North African Campaign across and this flight which took place between Brazil and Africa passed over two tiny rocky island's that are not habitable called the St Peter and Paul Rock's which lie almost between the two continent's in the middle of the Atlantic, on very rare occasion's especially after some form's of electrical storm if the ocean has received a higher than normal level of Ozone oxygen there is a rare phenomena in which the water can become ultra translucent and on several occasion's perhaps after such event's or else other event's that meant the water was unusually clear pilot's reported seeing submerged buildings or ruin's on the side of a submerged island or mountain NEAR to the st Peter and Paul rock's (how near is debatable as pilot's may have meant several miles or even ten's of miles away from those rock's).

During the ice age the Sea was undeniably several HUNDRED feet lower but that does not actually give you a genuine indication of how old a sunken structure is because it CAN be deeper and also far Younger than estimates based solely upon barometric depth and this is best explained like this, the Surface of the earth is elastic, it rises and fall's depending on the pressure underlying the mantle which itself can be effected by eruption's and large surface displacement fluctuation's such as what happened when the mass the of the water forming a second continent of ice on the northern hemisphere melted and flowed back into the ocean's, this simultaneously increased the weight of the ocean's and decreased the weight of the continent's, the effect was to reduce mantle pressure which had been pushing the ocean upward as it could now equalize more with the now lighter continent's and also at the same time the increased weight of the ocean's pushed the ocean bed (along with low lying island's) downward, in some places this like in any geological activity would have been far more pronounced and one such location is the sunken city near Cuba which in effect therefore may be fare younger than the 50.000 years supposed for 'Gradual' sea level change.

There is also another potential mechanism, researchers from an Australian University postulated the theory that the entire continent of south america may have tilted and that the amazon itself may once have flowed west not east, if so hundred's of miles of what was once land now lie deeply submerged in the Atlantic while what may once have been sea port's on fjord like inlets to the pacific (Tiahunaco/Tiwanaku and puma punku whose stone's are strangely scattered and there is sign's also of massive movement of water in the area) may have suffered a cataclysmic upthrust increasing there altitude and pushing them far above the sea level they once were at while also exposing much land to the west which had formerly been submerged (it could even be a cyclical event that has happened before and imagine the size of the tidal wave washing over both the Atlantic and the Pacific eradicating civilization's city's and cultures at this already turbulent and climactic time.
Of course researchers always put a conservative estimate on there research and tend to date a safe time so they have estimated about 14 million years, also remember both the area of the continent right out to the continental margin's of all land's bordering the Atlantic WAS land and far above sea level before those continent's split apart so whether it was land of not is not an argument, just how long ago and if human's could have lived there.

www.sciencealert.com...
www.nature.com...
www.sciencedirect.com...

Personally I think much of it was land much more recently and that not only did human's live there but that they were both far more advanced than we give them credit and that the human race itself is older than the current model's argue.

Note also the increase in Ocean weight pushing downward concurrent with the Decrease in Magmatic Mantle pressure pushing the Ocean basin upward in the Atlantic as well as the fact the South American continent is moving on it's western seaboard over much older and thicker pacific Ocean plates and indeed the remain's of what may once have been a proto or failed continent in the pacific (much much older) mean that there is a mechanical engineering process that could explain a much more recent tilt occurring, this mechanical process is that the thicker crust of the pacific sliding under the south american plate would and indeed does push upward not only causing the crumple zone mountain's of the Andes to form but also upthrusting the whole western side of the south american plate while to it's east the pressure and Upward thrusting pressure of the Mantle there is far lower and perhaps because far, far lower enough even to precipitate a sudden cataclysmic event as recently as the end of the last ice age.

And we would love to see your argument against?.
What is a valid source in your appraisal anyway, you get that sinking feeling sometime's so just push it under the mat.

Seriously making a single one line statement with no meat to it is literally trolling a post just because you don't like it and I would not reply to your post but it infuriates me when people dismiss a subject then try to make it a laughing stock just to make themselves look like the smart mouthed bully kid in class.

IF you really don't believe then give us your appraisal with source's, there reasoning and of course why you do not BELIEVE it is possible then perhaps your remark will add to a thread rather than detract from it.

Chr0naut's comment is valid as to the source but that also is out of hand.

Great points made.

Some people are not aware but in our oceans hundreds/thousands of miles off shore you can stand in the water because it is only three to four feet deep.... not a large water hole as some may think.

I think it is in the Pacific region where all of a sudden a huge mountain rose out of the sea in just minutes? Just a few years ago... numerous witnesses on a ship tour watched as it happened...

or the African continent is slowly breaking in half? Fault line cutting across the entire continent....

Yes there are several rift valleys, Arabia which is a actually a micro continent is breaking away slowly from Africa and you can actually dive into the rift which one day will become an ocean and in places touch both side's of that future ocean with your hand's.
That is an interesting story about the mountain rising but not unheard of, some such story's are derided but in other cases the island is there to this day to prove it happened, they are almost always volcanic sea mount's that have broken the surface.

And it is definitely interesting to think that some part's of the Pacific far from land are too shallow for navigation and definitely would have been above water dry land during the last ice age, I keep an open mind to a more recent massive land being lost in the pacific such as the fabled Mu/Lemuria legend but it is definite that there are therefore Lost land's that would perhaps not have been continents in and of themselves in the Pacific as well as there being genuine sunken proto continent's which once would have been true continent's in the pacific but those are measured in geological time rather than our more human measure of time.

Except the Ring of fire region though the Pacific has many geologically active region's that may once have caused vast area's of land to be exposed, how much within human existence though and of course many of the native cultures of the region actually speak of sunken land's, then you have the massive ruins of Poanape and other mysteries scattered throughout it, the Lemur though different species and only distantly related are argued to have been scattered after being taken as pet's or food by human's on there canoe's - I actually do not accept as they die when held in captivity and suffer stress far too easily, that and I do think that the original argument (Lemuria) that there may have been land joining many of these distantly separated island's is a genuine possible explanation, the truth is we know more about the face of the moon then we do the sea.

Oh yeah.....

I agree with your info....read it years ago...

Some might not know the Ring of Fire and what it consists of....IMO this area is and will always be the one place on earth that can easily destroy all life on this planet.


The Ring of Fire is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes (more than 75% of the world's active and dormant volcanoes).

[1] The Ring of Fire is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt. About 90%[2] of the world's earthquakes and 81%[3] of the world's largest earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. The next most seismically active region (5–6% of earthquakes and 17% of the world's largest earthquakes) is the Alpide belt, which extends from Java to the northern Atlantic Ocean via the Himalayas and southern Europe.

[4][5] All but three of the world's 25 largest volcanic eruptions of the last 11,700 years occurred at volcanoes in the Ring of Fire.

[6] The Ring of Fire is a direct result of plate tectonics: the movement and collisions of lithospheric plates.

[7] The eastern section of the ring is the result of the Nazca Plate and the Cocos Plate being subducted beneath the westward-moving South American Plate. The Cocos Plate is being subducted beneath the Caribbean Plate, in Central America. A portion of the Pacific Plate and the small Juan de Fuca Plate are being subducted beneath the North American Plate. Along the northern portion, the northwestward-moving Pacific plate is being subducted beneath the Aleutian Islands arc. Farther west, the Pacific plate is being subducted along the Kamchatka Peninsula arcs on south past Japan. The southern portion is more complex, with a number of smaller tectonic plates in collision with the Pacific plate from the Mariana Islands, the Philippines, Bougainville, Tonga, and New Zealand; this portion excludes Australia, since it lies in the center of its tectonic plate. Indonesia lies between the Ring of Fire along the northeastern islands adjacent to and including New Guinea and the Alpide belt along the south and west from Sumatra, Java, Bali, Flores, and Timor. The famous and very active San Andreas Fault zone of California is a transform fault which offsets a portion of the East Pacific Rise under southwestern United States and Mexico. The motion of the fault generates numerous small earthquakes, at multiple times a day, most of which are too small to be felt.

[8][9] The active Queen Charlotte Fault on the west coast of the Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, has generated three large earthquakes during the 20th century: a magnitude 7 event in 1929; a magnitude 8.1 in 1949 (Canada's largest recorded earthquake); and a magnitude 7.4 in 1970.[10]

Great post, also it is also worth mentioning all this volcanic activity while it has the potential to and frequently does wipe life out also drives many chemo synthetic life form's as part of the food chain of the ocean, while perhaps not as important to life in the ecological food chain as the arctic region's are it is still a fundamental life giver rather than simply a life taker and is most definitely a fundamental source of many parts of the eco system of the ocean's.

The largest eruption within recent human memory, that of Krakatoa was of a relatively small volcanic island upon the ring of fire and even that relatively small eruption caused devastation far and wide creating a huge tsunami.

The Dragon sea is another you will be well aware of, named as one of the Vile Vortex a region were plane's and ship's disappear more frequently than outside of it this roughly triangular region is also know as the dragon's triangle and though mostly very deep water even there new island's do or have been reported to rise out of the ocean, how long they last is always going to be a question especially given the volatile nature of that region. it is interesting to speculate that within human memory some doomed island's in the region may well have hosted human population's.

Five seconds into the video, exactly five seconds, there is an image of a supposed submerged complex of buildings.

Somebody left the lights on...so I turned the video off.

Naysayers, say what you will about the artists' renderings of how the purported cities may have appeared. Here are a couple facts:

-Millennia ago, sea levels were hundreds of feet lower than they are now.

-Humans' existence on the earth at that time was very widespread, as evidenced by archeology.

-People have, and always will, congregate in settlements/cities where the most food and resources are located... By the sea.

To state that no remains exist, that are now submerged, of any settlements/cities, is ridiculous.

Not completely clickbait, however some of the underwater video is out of place. At least one clip for Lake Titicaca was of Yonaguni, Alexandria and the Chinese city are correct but the underwater clips of Port Royale are misleading here's a better video of diving in Port Royale www.youtube.com...

Good find!


Seems that pyramid building was a world-wide hobby, eh?

I remember the Cuban find being announced. Some of the others as well, Alexandria particularly. But some were completely new to me. Now I'm off to learn more...thanks for thread.
