This site has aged a lot and has probably not been updated in like ages but it has some interesting stuff on the Azores location that you may find
intriguing, like I say I stick with the large feature in the Sahara called the Eye of the Sahara because it is a perfect match for the ring islands
and canal's in Plato's account, the only problem is it's altitude but given that the feature is almost definitely over a thermal plume (Volcanic) the
area may have been lifted very fast relatively speaking and also in the past have been up and down many times at rate that modern geologists not only
would not accept but would hate as it may thrown many of there cherished theory's into chaos.
So this elderly site is more aimed at those that stick with the Azores and Atlantic ridge theory's.
Let me clarify something on that, I too believe there were land mass there in the past perhaps several time's and perhaps as recently as the end of
the last Glacial Maximum (we are still in an ice age called the Quaternary Ice Age and it has periods of Glacial Maximum when ice sheet's grow and
period's of glacial minimum when they retreat).
BEWARE the site is a bit quasi mystical at time's but still worth a perusal as you are interested in the subject as are many of us.
To be fair I think they are correct, my only sticking point is that as I say I now believe the eye of the Sahara to have been the site of the CITY of
Atlantis but that does not exclude the possibility of other sunken land's either contemporaneous to it or even older, I also believe that a
cataclysmic tilting of the south american continental plate may also have had something to do with it as well as the end of the last glacial
It work's like this, western south america may be riding over what may be the remains of something called a proto continent (these were continent's
earlier in the earth's history but eventually sank back into the mantle or were subducted - drawn under - by plate tectonic's when these older
continent's and the tectonic plate they were upon slid under a lighter and perhaps younger tectonic plate, this led to an area of thickened ocean
plate with a much younger plate lying over it hiding it's true thickness and then as new continent's slid over the top of these - well think about the
mechanic's of putting a pry bar under a crate lid to lift one end.
Meanwhile on the EASTERN side of south america the Atlantic plates along with many islands (St Peter and Paul rock's halfway between Brazil and
Africa are said to have ruins under the water - these two small rocks' are perhaps all that is left of either sunken or drowned island's that were
last above water during the last glacial maximum and may have been sizable islands at that time - cargo pilot's taking supply's for the war effort via
this shortest air route reported seeing ruin's under the water there) were very young and also very thin, this was made even more interesting by the
end of the last glacial maximum, the ocean became heavier as a continent size ice sheet in places over two miles thick melted back into the ocean's so
pressure pushing down from that alone on the young Atlantic ocean plates was increased immensely - think about it like a fat person sitting on a weak
garden bench and the wood bending under there weight - then to add to this the continent's were the ice had been were now lighter, under the
continent's MAGMA was able then to displace back UNDER the now lighter continent's were that ice had been and AWAY from the Atlantic ocean plates so
that they were simultaneously hammered by increased downward pressure from the ocean and by reduced upward pressure from the magma that underlay them
and which was now able to ooze back under the continent's, this may have precipitated an terrifying event - the entire continent of south america may
have tilted in just a few hours throwing a once port city on ocean fjords called today Puma Punku - and Tiwanaku in western south america in the Andes
Sky high throwing it up over 4000 feet in an earthquake that throw the huge stones of the site around like a child's play block's while on the Eastern
side of the continent huge swathes of land were thrown into what is now the depths' of the ocean also causing the ocean bed itself to sump and taking
any islands upon it with it, a huge tidal wave of unimaginable proportions would have races across both the Atlantic and the Pacific scouring coastal
civilization from the face of the earth and the already beleaguered survivors would then have had to contend with the environmental change that also
came at that time, famine, starvation and perhaps the last desperate attempt's to control resources led to the end of that age.
But this is just a theory, not a proven fact, just how I reckon it could have gone but of course I was not there so?.
This while off the beaten track and more based on rumor and urban legend is also a great read.
Having typed all that I now feel
it is probably very wrong but have left it anyway since it remains an interesting what if.
Here are those two rock's that sit about halfway between africa and brazil were WW2 cargo pilot's claimed to see ruins when the sun was just
These are just added for interests and as to the reliability of the story I really do not know, best of luck in your search and may it being you to
truth, there are many pitfalls on that search along the way though so keep an open mind and never take it as is but think for yourself and always take
this as third hand evidence, word of mouth unless you see it yourself, that said there is definitely something to it as far as I am concerned - but
that again is just an opinion.
