In the second half, pre-historic researcher John Jensen discussed evidence of canal systems that may have been built by an ancient civilization in the United States. Jensen explained that he first made this discovery while using Google Earth to research Civil War forts along the Mississippi River. It was then that he noticed an "eroded canal" beside a fort and, upon zooming the map view out, realized that it was merely a part of a much larger system of canals. In subsequent months, he uncovered over 250 sites which appear to have ancient canals, roads, or even strange symbols in the Earth. Rather than put forward a specific theory as to their origins, Jensen stressed that he is more focused on "'what is it' rather than 'why is it.'" Moving forward, he hopes for more on-site investigations of these formations in order to create a "time map" which will indicate the ages of these anomalies as well as when they were abandoned.
We are looking at a civilization of canal builders and aquatic engineers on the Atlantic side of the US stretching across the entire East Coast and Gulf Coast of the US.
2. This civilization built agriculture canals, habitat, transport and navigable channels and waterways that are extremely sophisticated and precisely engineered systems. Some double channels are over 300' wide, continuing for many miles in exact straight lines, indicate hydraulic, aquatic, industrial and mechanical engineering on a massive scale. These systems appear to be at least as sophisticated as current technology could produce.
Golden Meadows, LA29.336393, -90.204964
This is the southern portion of a long straight double line channel that runs more than 80 miles from Chauvin, LA around the Golden Meadow complex in this area, then crossing the Gulf and the Mississippi at Port Sulpher, then continuing straight North toward Gulf Port, MS. Tracing this channel, shows many areas that have eroded into and under the water table, and raising again later where the land is slightly higher. Many of the opening have been closed off by the Corp. of Engineers.
This is the single most important piece of evidence of a pre-historic civilization, because it can't be explained away as anything other than what it is. A very long, very well built, very old transport channel. It was built using very sophisticated technology and engineering.
We are looking forward to doing research on this channel to get accurate construction dates.

He doesn't help his case but stating a "pre-diluvial America" (sic). I'll agree that there was a "biblical" flood, it occurred in Sumer perhaps around 2500-2400 BCE, the textual record of which was appropriated by the Hebrews for their bible, but there never was a single, world wide flood. America certainly may have enjoyed its share of floods and changing coast lines, but there has never been a "pre-diluvial" America.

the canals in south Louisiana are indeed man made and are there for boat navigation. No big mystery. If this is what his theory is based on he is way off the mark.
Q: Why do the big channels in Louisiana have two lanes, and why are the turns or curves so wide?
A: The larger channels that predominately are 'double' lanes must have been constructed for use that required that specific design. An example is the type of vessel, and another is locomotion. How were the vessels powered? It makes sense that a civilization that could build these channels, must have had some kind of large or industrial mechanical capabilities. It seems to suggest that their transport units were very long 'barge' type vessels, either with steering or power concerns, or both. The center line must be related to convenience of use.
A team of researchers working in the Andean foothills of Peru has unearthed solid evidence of canals confirmed to be at least 5,400 years old. The find is the oldest of its kind anywhere in South America
