Just to keep everyone on their toes:

maps.google.com...,-24.658813&spn=2.986094,5.405273&z=8

Be interesting to see whether this is an artifact of the data collection, or is actual structure on the bottom of the ocean.

Discussion on where the patterns may be coming from

Sonar and other data retrieval systems leave patterns

Hey Hanslune. It looks like we have to sign up to Google Earth to view the data.

Howdy Lostinspace

Well what greedy swine they are! LOL

It's just a human induced image anyway. So I wouldn't add it to the evidence bucket.

Well over a thousand places I believe. It might be easier to make a list of places where Atlantis HASN'T been found.

it is amazing how easy it is to grab international headlines with an atlantis story. it seems that anyone who makes any effort can get themselves flashed far and wide.

I wonder what would happen if it was the national geological institute of a European Union country that went mainstream saying that they had found it. who knows. that would be brand new and not so easy for pretend scholars to giggle at.

The colossal heads of the Olmecs tell me that an entire civilization is missing from the Americas. These heads have an African or Polynesian form. What is strange is that some later culture decided to bury the heads in the earth. It's as if the preceding culture was feared. I noticed the colossal Olmec head is shown in the center of the Toltec warrior shield. This face is also shown in the center of the Mayan/Aztec calendar.

The governmental seat of the Olmec culture may be at the bottom of the Caribbean.

Howdy there Lostinspace

There are seventeen known colossal heads, only four have faces that might be considered "unusual", if you go to that part of Mexico you'll notice that a lot of the natives have flatten faces. I've traveled there and yes a few of them have that look. Genetics show that they came from NE Asia. No skeletal material has been found for Olmec culture so we don't have a definitive on that unfortunately.

The Olmec develop many thousands of years after the purported date of "Atlantis" as note in Plato's literature.

Google makes it official

Oops


But Google said the lines represented sonar data collected from boats.

"It's true that many amazing discoveries have been made in Google Earth including a pristine forest in Mozambique that is home to previously unknown species and the remains of an Ancient Roman villa," a Google statement said.

"In this case, however, what users are seeing is an artefact of the data collection process. Bathymetric ( or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor," she added.

"The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data. The fact there are blank spots between each of these lines is a sign of how little we really know about the world's oceans."

that's some really cool stuff...how has this never been seen on satelight until now?

Not sure either no one notice before - or realize it was an artifact of the software and how it displayed the data or new data from the sonar material was added in recently. Nonetheless just a false alarm.

go to the latest version of google earth and find
31*21'52.33" N 24*24'51.39" W and you will see a grid pattern not found anywhere else on the planet, these are large squares my guess is they are irrigation canals.

Look again Hanslune. Some of the lines actually continue from one frame shot to another. I was looking at one line near the triangle pattern east of the isle of youth and saw two different satellite shots showing the underwater line going through both shots. These lines might be from dredging.
