Unfortunately, the Atlantians were recorded as being segregationist in their beliefs and tendencies. There were the 'beast' people of the mountains
who were kept from the civilization and apparently they were basically at the technological level of Neanderthals.
I wouldn't naturally think that an underwater LA exists, but the image is crappy no matter how you look at it, and history is prone to repeat itself.
With a high tendency towards social order, most societies will adopt similar behaviors and attitudes, and lifestyle choices.
The most important people get whatever they want and most Atlantian citizens probably got most of the same perks. If you weren't a citizen, then you
are living in the caves grunting at the other grunty people cast aside just like you were.
On top of this, were this city (if it exists) such a civilization, then many would have brought their beliefs and attitudes with them after they Iron
Pillared (nuked) themselves to oblivion. As such, then you have a replication of the previous civilizations (Lemuria, Atlantis and whomever else) and
of the pyramidal organization structure that keeps them at the top and everyone else below right where they want the little people to worship them
There is no difference between a God, and a person with all the same powers and a god complex. This person can shoot fire from his fingertips! He must
be a God. Little does the victim know that there is an advanced particle accelerator device attached to his palm that lets him shoot fire any time he
wants. What he really wants is to never be questioned and to have the little people build him a new empire in his own image.
It doesn't last. What I am saying is, LA's street design and structure may very well have its precedent somewhere in Earth's forgotten history, and
simply because the patterns look familiar, well what do you expect?
Ah, just what I would expect, most likely. Giant statuary scattered along the sea bed, fish and dolphins swimming over massive temples and structures
that have a little bit of every culture present in its art. Hee hee! That was a shower curtain I had once. What a dream.
Yet, if people see anything that reminds them of their own culture in something way too old to fit within the current historical paradigm, they will
cry hoax and dismiss it as bogus when all we have is a sketchy image that is as conclusive as the highlightered moon temple and statue pictures.
Some look eerie and man made, most are so garbled that you can't really make heads or tails of it. Sure, I think a flooded city from history is
possible, I find it more unlikely that the Egyptian priests talking of a 10,000 year old civilization to Plato were just ignorant fools that just
simply believed in stupid things. You can believe Plato for the sciency stuff, but why is his evidence compromised for something less certain? Because
it is less certain?
Not really. We are programmed to believe that past humans were simply ignorant, and that we as we currently are have become the most advanced version
of our species in terms of everything. I played far too much Phantasy Star IV to simply take that for granted (the game involves exploring the remains
of a formerly advanced civilization whose main planet was blown up).
It is statistically unlikely that every spectre, ghost, vampire, demon, angel, god, and other supernatural beings were all completely either
misunderstandings of the universe or the people were just stupid. Many innocent people died because of mass ergot poisonings, who were accused of
being witches, it does happen. I don't believe that every person who died were necessarily innocent, or that their possible supernatural condition is
explainable by the limited perspective of mainstream science in this day and age.
We have Yeti footprints and genetic samples that don't match anything, but are hominid and large. Is that enough? NO! Only when a government official
says they exist in a way the psycho debunkers can accept, then it MAY be enough. Rather, the only way to prove anything for the last few hundred years
is to kill and pickle anything you want people to believe in.
Without a pickled yeti, mainstream society will not accept it. So it is much the same for the possibility of this city existing. Unless you disturb
the resting place of countless dead people and throw their artefacts shamelessly on display around the world, most will never accept the possibility
of a regular city underwater, not to mention any acceptance of one more advanced than us.
Really, it is not allowed in our current social context to believe that, unless you want to look crazy or you keep it to a dull roar. Otherwise you
will be ridiculed and attacked until you dredge up enough of their memories and lives that it is undeniable, or someone else blows the lid off it.
I think a city could very well be there, and looking at that picture doesn't really convince me at all. If not in this location, there are hidden
cities found all the time and it is only a matter of time until the historical mother lode is discovered. This statement will prove itself possibly in
a matter of weeks, maybe longer, don't know.
Deny all you like, it isn't a hoax. It is a picture that is possible evidence.
Please do some research on what fallacies are and see how what most people use to debunk are nothing more than ancient techniques that were originally
sold to people under the premise that then they could get people to do whatever they wanted. Someone isn't doing what you want? Appeal to force. Just
beat the S.O.B till they cave in, if they die, then they serve as a reminder to the rest. That is but one fallacy. Strawman/Red Herring and Ad Hominem
are the most common fallacies used on ATS. Learn what they are and avoid these behaviors like the plague.
