Is there reason to believe that the true Atlantis lie under the Caribbean? The people that seem to believe are ones like Edgar Cayce and the Networks. The reason I say this is because Edgar Cayce predicted the Hall of Records would be found under the right paw of the Sphinx, which would elaberate on the Atlantis mystery, in Egypt, the summer of 2004. People are taking this to heart because of what he said about a temple being discovered near the Bahamas around a certain date. The Bimini Roads were found after that prediction so I wonder if people are going to believe in the 2004 event.
I mention the Networks believing because when I type in a search for Atlantis and the year 2004, an interesting, unexpected link pops up. The announcement of a Pilot series called "Stargate Atlantis", which will air June 2004. This lines up with the Edgar Cayce prediction. I think the Networks hope that something will transpire about this "Hall of Records" and its relation to Atlantis, because their program will have great success if these events turn true. It wil be very poppular to the people, because of the connection.

Now I would like to add a few portions from the novel Atla, Writen by Mrs. J. Gregory Smith published in 1886.

Chapter XIV. AT THE GATES.
(pg. 76)
"The voyagers(Phoenicians) sped prosperously, for by the aid of chart and compass these enterprising sons of Cush had aquired the art of night sailing. After touching at the colonial islands, in the Sea of Cham(Mediterranean), they followed the track of Dedan's voyage, passed the Gates of Herekles(Hercules) in safety, and skirting the outer shore northward, came to a fine harbor and promontory named Gades(South-west coast of Spain, now called Cadiz), where they rested three days before encountering the perils of the exterior ocean, named by the sailors the Sea Muhit(Atlantic)."

Chapter XV THE EDEN OF THE WEST
(pg. 86)
"Despite some stormy weather, in seventy days after leaving the port of Cacara(of Gades) the white peaks of the volcanoes appeared on the western horizon, and in a few hours the vessels were safely moored in the outer harbor of Pirhua.
The pilot recognized Dedan and his sailors. The Phenician ships, which had been anxiously expected, were immediately convoyed through the seagate and drawbridge, up the grand canal, to the foot of the city of Atlan."

These are the sunken images found in the waters between Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula 2200ft below the sea.

Finally found the new images taken by the rover. These are the photos.

One obejct looks like a pyramid, but Egypt's kind(Its not stepped).

Another object is dark and rounded with a white pyramid drawn on its side.

The say that the Caribbean Islands could've been mountain tops of vast lands in the past. Seems plausible, especially in Saba's case:

August Le Plongeon, who did extensive archeological work in the Yucatan during the late 19th century, believed that Atlantis was in the Caribbean.

The Antilles of the Caribbean were known to the Mayas as the “Land of the Scorpion,” Zinaan, and were represented in Mayan hieroglyphs by the figure of the arachnid or in cursive style by the symbol (an arch with two prongs); evidence, Le Plongeon believes, that they were well acquainted with the general outline of the archipelago. Queen Moo found that the Mayan “Land of the Scorpion” had vanished under the waves of the Atlantic (just like Atlantis).

Le Plongeon also believed that the Queen Moo and her followers sailed on to Egypt and as a memorial to her brother Coh erected the Sphinx.

Can you imagine how mad the Egyptologist will be if and when they find out that the Atlantians built the Sphinx. Maybe this is what is under the right paw of the Sphinx ; some sort of writing describing the monument being dedicated to a great ruler in the Western World. Was the head changed from the original head to an Egyptian Pharoah?

Here are some recent comments onto the objects reported in the Yucatan Channel.
I would like to point out a few things happing in the summer of 2004:
1. Edgar Cayce's predition of Hall of Records being found under the right paw of the Sphinx, having some relationship to Atlantis.
2. Pilot series of Stargate Atlantis beginning.
3. National Geographic partaking in uncovering these lost ruins, with high tech equipment and good funding.


Interview:

Paul Weinzweig, Partner with Paulina Zelitsky, Advanced Digital Communications International, Inc., Havana, Cuba: "We're still very interested and excited about the initial finds that we made in cooperation with Dr. Iturralde. He's taken a respectable conservative, but intelligent, approach: 'We don't know what it is, but it doesn't look like geology to us.'

Where we stand really is that we have the sonar images which show architectural types of structures with geometry, perpendicular lines, symmetries, that one does not tend to find in nature and are not repeated anywhere else in the region. They are extensive and large and we have video, but is suggestive because the stones that we have videotaped are very large, very smooth. They do not belong to the local geology at all, according to our ocean bottom survey work and to Dr. Iturralde. And the stones appear to have some aspects of cut and polished features.

Paulina and I do feel that we have found something remarkable. Our intuition tells us in addition to the data that we have that there is a good chance that there was some remarkable civilization on an island many thousands of years ago to the west of present day Cuba.

AND THE SIZES OF WHAT DR. ITURRALDE CALLS MEGALITHIC STRUCTURES ­ DO YOU HAVE BETTER ESTIMATES ON WHAT THE LENGTH, WIDTH AND HEIGHT OF THOSE RECTANGULAR STRUCTURES WOULD BE?

According to our estimates, the sonar images are up to 150 to 200 meters (492 to 656 feet) in length and maybe up to 50 to 100 meters (164 to 328 feet) in width. So they are very large structures.

ABOUT HOW HIGH?

Well, it's difficult to say because what we see is only above the sandy soil of the ocean bottom. That could be up to 15 to 20 meters, but there could be extensive structures below the loose sand, white sand on the ocean bottom.

WHEN PAULINA WAS DESCRIBING ONE OF THE CROSSED OVALS AT LEAST ONE OF THE INVESTIGATORS THOUGHT MIGHT BE ON ONE OF THOSE, WAS IT ON ONE OF THE MEGALITHIC STRUCTURES OR WAS IT ON A SINGLE, SEPARATED STONE?

It was on what we call ­ the word 'megalith' is used to describe both the structures and the individual stones that are part of the structures. The stones are also very large.

WHAT'S THE SIZE OF THEM?

They could be 10 to 15 feet high.

BY ABOUT WHAT WIDTH?

5 to 10 feet wide. We did not videotape many of these stones, so we have a few samples. But they are very large and some of them appear to be fitted ­ that is, one on top of the other in a comfortable position.

AND IN FITTINGS, WOULD IT LOOK SORT OF LIKE STONEHENGE KIND OF CONSTRUCTION OR?

That's right. Not so long, but certainly more square, more rounded, more perpendicular. As I say, the entire ocean bottom in that region is simply white sand with a few outcroppings of blackened limestone. By the way, when limestone is blackened, it's because of contact with oxygen. So, that also suggests the area was once above sea water. These things (megalithic structures) just appear out of nowhere that look like granite. Because there is no granite on Cuba. Cuba is a limestone similar to the Yucatan. It's mostly limestone, the whole area is limestone.

WHAT ABOUT THAT PYRAMIDAL SHAPE THAT WAS IN THE IMAGE OF PAULINA LOOKING AT THE COMPUTER MONITOR?

That's a stone. It's one of the stones.

AND IT DOES SEEM TO BE PYRAMIDAL SHAPED?

Yes. Yeah, it has a shape that doesn't appear often in nature. It's not a shape one would expect to see in nature.

IN TERMS OF THE ROBOT YOU HAD HOPED YOU COULD GET DOWN THERE WITH MAYBE ONE OF THE ADVANCED SPACE ROBOTS THAT COULD GO AND DRILL INTO SOME OF THESE STRUCTURES AND FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE?

We are discussing a proposal with National Geographic right now to do a preliminary survey using our own technology, but a more extensive survey than we've done before and on the basis of those findings, to decide whether to go forward or not. If we do go forward, of course, it would be with more advanced technology.

ARE YOU NOW CLOSER FOR NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TO HELP WITH SOME FUNDING AND EQUIPMENT HERE?

They would like to send their own camera, their own person down, on our ship to validate what we've found and to get a little more information that would support a more strongly the hypothesis that there was a civilization there. And then they would, of course, take the next step which would be a more serious financial and logistical effort.

Then it's a matter of timing ­ their people have to be ready, we have to be ready. We have to have all permits and approvals in place. The weather has to be right. The season has to be right. It's a complex scenario, you know?

WOULD YOU THINK THE SPRING OR SUMMER OF 2004 MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNE TIME?

Yes, that sounds very possible.

HAS THERE BEEN ANY OTHER DATA THAT HAS SUPPORTED THE POSSIBLE HYPOTHESIS THAT THERE MIGHT BE METAL COATINGS ON SOME OF THE MEGALITHIC STRUCTURES?

It's possible from our sonar images that there could be metal because the darker the image, the more dense the material. So we do have ­ but again, this is only hypothetical and would need to be verified by visual probes, by an ROV and cameras and good lighting. The area is quite extensive, spread out over several kilometers and really ­ we've barely touched it in terms of video probes.

IS IT TRUE THAT THE MEGALITHIC STRUCTURES COVER ABOUT 10 SQUARE KILOMETERS?

Could be more.

THAT'S A BIG AREA.

It is very extensive. We don't know the full extent of it because we haven't analyzed all of the data from the region. We have a great deal of side scan sonar data and this is just one area that we've done in-depth analysis."
