No, the lost city of Atlantis has not been found.
Google Earth images showing what appeared to be a grid of streets on the ocean floor off the coast of Africa were actually tracks left by boat sonar.

Just had a relevant question to add to the discussion:
If this is INDEED a artifact, or a NORMAL process of data collection, with side scanning/deep ocean sonar/radar.
And it this "Image Artifact" is to be expected from the processes that we use to collect data on deep ocean topography...
Then why is it not more prevalent in other areas of the ocean? (On Google earth), especially, in this sort of interesting Geometric pattern/layout?
Seems to me that this is the only one of any geometric regularity... is this the ONLY area of the ocean that we have scanned the bottom of?
