I just read most of this thread and there are a few misconceptions. First, we have been back to Bimini and Andros many times since the date the
article referenced at the beginning of this thread came out. We made 2 documentaries with Canadian televison in 2008 and have 2 in the works with
Discovery coming in early 2009. There are 2 separate sites we discussed getting confused here. The "marble ruins" are in about 20-25 feet of water
and are widely scattered. There are a lot of marble in that area, which is about 7 miles from Bimini. It is far from the Bimini Road. The
"rectangular formations" are not related to the marble...these are in 100-feet of water about 9 miles from the marble area. The rectangular forms
have now been filmed with a top-of-the-line remote video as has virtually all of that area. The entire area off Bimini has now had side-scan sonar
been completed and a lot of sub-bottom profiling also done.
We are reasonably certain that the marble was cargo on an 1800's ship. We don't know that for certain, and decided it would be better for others to
do more with them, although that area is a focus of one of the Discovery shows in the works -- as are the rectangular forms in 100-feet of water.
Other than those 2 items, we are done at Bimini. But "it is what it is," and we simply report what we find. We decided to not put out too much
information on it, but made a dvd documentary called, "The Search for Edgar Cayce's Atlantis," which summarizes almost all that's been done to
date including the marble and recangular forms. Our focus in now primarily on the Great Bahama Bank, off western Andros and also in a few other areas
there. We have identified over 100 spots from an aerial survey and will check all of them out in early 2009. We plan on spending 5-7 weeks in the
Bahamas starting in January--after Hurricane season.
But there has been a lot happening. And the conference mentioned did occur, about 300 people in attendance. On another related item, Cayce related
there were 3 identical halls of records. One sunken off Bimini--probably somewhat to the sw. Another at Piedras Negras, Guatemala, and the third at
Giza. In 2003 we investigated the Piedras Negras site and put out a documentary called "The Yucatan Hall of Records." Some of that was shown on a
2-hr documentary shown on Sci-Fi and MSNBC. In 2009 (probably May) a new book will appear by Andrew Collins describing actual finds at Giza and we
will be making a documentary on that as well. The interviews with Collins have already been done.
I have no background or training in identifying building foundations and limited undergraduate education in archaeology or anthropology. Like I
related, we report what we find. But we aren't desperate to find anything ... exploring is simply what we enjoy doing, and reporting what is found is
what science is all about.
