Huge Underwater "Roads" near Saipan on Google Earth?

I'd like to get some opinions on some pictures that were uploaded by ATS member ancientthunder on the following thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

They are images taken from Google Earth in the area around Saipan that appear the show some type of large formation, perhaps roads, or something similar beneath the surface of the water. I've spent some time viewing them on Google Earth, and they are indeed there, and seem to be quite plentiful in the area.

Does anyone know what they are, or has anyone come across these "roads" before? They are rather interesting due to their size and "unnatural" look.




Special appreciation goes out to ancientthunder for a good and quite curious find.

They arent roads, they are parts of the ocean that have been explored....look at the areas around the "roads", blurry, and little detail, whereas the "roads" have lots of detail.

I would imagine its to do with areas of the ocean floor that have been mapped for various reasons. Oil, gas, minerals, ship wrecks etc etc.

Look at the first image carefully

I'm no expert...but they look like stairs to me and based on the topography of the area, seems plausible....maybe rising waters over time submerged the area, also plausible.


Actually upon further review...the scale might not fit for stairs but maybe irrigated fields along the mountain side since submerged ?

Oh my God if there was one, are you serious?

Roads deteriorate with time alone. Can you imagine one that's been in the ocean for thousands of years ? There would be no road. So this is impossible.

ok so I went on to G earth and looked at the "roads" then started wandering around, and to the NE of Saipan I found something interesting.

24o 17' 14" N 153o 58' 49" E there is an island. You have to zoom in pretty good for it to come up. There is an air strip and what appears to be buildings but it's greyed out almost like it is censored. Has anyone seen this and does anyone know what this island is called? It's not part of Hawaiian chain, or the bonin islands, or the saipan chain.

Given how close it is to Japan, I figured it had to be involved in WWII.

West of Wake Island, but east of Guam. East of Iwo Jima, but almost as far north...

It's called Marcus Island, aka Minami-Tori-Shima.

edit: and I almost forgot to mention that I found it thanks to the first map on this WWII history site:

Know what I like about you Randy? You have such simple, "cut to the chase" viewpoints on so many things.

Very well stated, and very true.

Except for the possibility that the "roads" in question are made of stone / rock and not current road material like concrete or asphalt. Even more so if the item is under water.

If they are from way back in the day they would be using what was available at the time, which would be rock. An item that can stand the test of time, weathering etc etc etc.

Have you seen the roads laid down by the romans? They are on land, and definitely not in a condition that would be comparable to what we see in that image. Considering that these "roads" are underwater, i would expect them to be far, far more weathered.


But you may be right!

I'm just glad to have you like something about me. That's cool.

Weeds and all different kind of plant life grow up thru stone rock cement driveways what have you. Again can you imagine what would grow up through the crevices of a rock road over thousands of years. There would be nothing left. I site the Bimini road before you do as it was made with boulders not just rock. I do believe it was man made but not a road.

That is the oldest plate on Earth, Pacific Plate. It could be proof that there was alien life there on Earth long long ago in our past.


Look at how over time that island chain popped up and eroded part of those "roads".....you can see faded portions on the other side of the islands.

There is a bigger better one to see south-East of the Marianas Island chain....one MAJOR straight piece. I thought at first maybe they had ships tow a plow under the sea and buried a cable to detect submarines......but if you look closely....that's not what it is.

Why did President Bush declare that area you have pictured a "United States National Marine Park"....and we now forbid ANY country from going below the water line in that region of Earth.

en.wikipedia.org...

I met one lady who claims she's a Star Child and that there are "alienz" living down there. I don't think so myself....maybe long ago...but not now.

The answer has been given multiple times and is ignored in favor of fantastic claims with no basis. It is survey data that is applied to the map. So basically it's areas that have been "studied" and has additional details known about it.
