My view on it is that people will go to great lengths to refute any evidence that would mean they have to change their mind. Erratic archeological
finds are very troublesome to them, and generally get filed away, so they don't have to see them. It is willful blindness, imho. To see the actual,
physical, and highly probable to be genuine artifacts that demolish the cherished theory, and boldly say that it must be fake, is what I see being
done. It is their position that the literally thousands of pieces of anomalous material are all just a string of coincidental anecdotal evidence, is
hard for me to fathom.
There is just as much evidence (if not even more so) for the structures being completely natural;
""The first time I dived there, I knew it was not artificial," Schoch said. "It's not as regular as many people claim, and the right angles and
symmetry don't add up in many places."
He emphasizes that he is not accusing anyone of deliberately falsifying evidence.
But many of the photos tend to give a perfect view of the site, making the lines look as regular as possible, he said.
Schoch also says he has seen what Kimura believes to be renderings of animals and human faces at the site.
"Professor Kimura says he has seen some kind of writing or images, but they are just scratches on a rock that are natural," he said.
"He interprets them as being manmade, but I don't know where he's coming from."
But Kimura is undeterred by critics, adding that the new governor of Okinawa Prefecture and officials from the United Nations Educational, Scientific,
and Cultural Organization have recently expressed interest in verifying the site.
"The best way to get a definitive answer about their origins is to keep going back and collecting more evidence," he continued.
"If I'd not had a chance to see these structures for myself, I might be skeptical as well";
Personally i'm very doubtful that its human-made, unless experts start turning up pottery, tools, crafted items etc that are undoubtedly man-made and
in situ at the site.
Just because its all very geometric looking, does not mean that its man-made; the Giants Causeway looks man-made however its positively natural and
