Japan's Ancient Underwater "Pyramid" Mystifies Scholars


www.news.nationalgeographic.com




Submerged stone structures lying just below the waters off Yonaguni Jima are actually the ruins of a Japanese Atlantis—an ancient city sunk by an earthquake about 2,000 years ago.

That's the belief of Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyus in Japan who has been diving at the site to measure and map its formations for more than 15 years.

Each time he returns to the dive boat, Kimura said, he is more convinced than ever that below him rest the remains of a 5,000-year-old city.

I wish we put as much energy into exploring our seas as we do in outer space. What little has been discovered thus far is amazing.

Wouldnt the Japanese "Atlantis" technically be one of the other "lost" places like Mu or something?

It's a well known rock outcrop - now submerged but above sea level 10,000 years ago - which may have been altered by humans known to have been living in the area at the time (although it's as likely to be entirely natural - similar rock outcrops exist today on the island and show the same patterns of erosion - which is due to the bedding planes etc and just just coincidently appears 'manmade' to those with little geological knowledge)

Of course, if one person thinks otherwise it proves everyone else is wrong

Shocking, i wasn't aware you were possessed of a mathematical anomaly that performed such intense calculations that hundreds of people suddenly become one person!

Generalization, its a wonderful thing for those who don't want to deny ignorance.

I just wanted to point out that because of the position of these formations (in the ocean), if they are man-made or just man-altered, that would indicate a sophisticated population in the area much earlier than previously thought possible.

No. It'd just mean a paleolithic or neolithic culture in the area in which we know people were living at the time ....

Japanese is Japanese.

Atlantis is Atlantis.

Do we agree each other here?

I LOVE THIS!!! I read once that he thought it might be as old as 10,000 years. What a great find. I have been wanting to go and dive this for many years. Thanks for the post. Lots of fun to talk about and to think about what might actuallybe inside! Thanks for the links...
