But wait it gets better!

My artist's eye immediately noticed those aren't "circles" in the island to the north...

They are Fibonacci Spirals:

google earth


spiral 2


Download or create a fibronacci spiral and you will see there are many here.

So is this some random creation of nature? Or evidence of manipulation on a grand scale?

Anyone ever think Atlantis may have been located near (or in) Indonesia?

Plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions could have led to drastic geological changes in the area over a relatively short period of time.

It would make sense for such a legendary nations ruins to hide in such plain sight. And the size of Indonesia is appropriate. Look at the elevation charts for the Indonesia area and it starts to make a lot of sense.

No because Atlantis was beyond the pillars of Heracles, that's the closest point between Africa and Europe see maps, but if you said Lemuria then it was out in the Pacific or Indian ocean then yeah why not.

yonaguni extreme southern japan or it could be any sunken city off the coast of India

Personally I believe Atlantis is compounded confused mixture of geographic areas the ancients put together,Thera, which the ancient Egyptians were familiar when the volcano blew it affected both the north and south med, and much of it sanked below the waves.

The Therans were also a sea going folk highly civilized the Egyptians could have linked both civilizations as some distant memory of contacts with Meso-America... see evidence for contacts coc aine and tobacco mummies

Quick question. How much did the oceans rise after the last ice age?

a) We know that before the last ice age ended britian was effectively connected to the european mainland.
b) We also know that in north america a vast amount of water rushed into the oceans after the glaciers melted.

Just a theory but what if atlantis was above water during the last ice age. Once the ice dams broke a tsunami of water destroyed any and all civilizations that lived on these islands. This would explain the story of atlantis getting wiped out in one day.

Thank you for your reply. The two guys who made the videos did all the real work. Once I found one of the videos I put weeks into watching them on a big screen and reading up on the map. I only put a few days into getting this thread together. ATS deleted one of the links I put in because it went to another site. But you can still get the jest of what is being shown. Most of the Google Maps attention was drawn to a grid which lay just east of this arrowhead. It was removed from Google Maps because of the uproar. The reason they gave was something like it being only sonar lines and not actual features.

Though I had looked at pictures of the ocean floor before, I never matched the map to the mesa, probably because the map looks so big and is upside down. But all the credit goes to the two guys who made the videos ~ Search4atlantis and Danny Whilten.

I sent Danny an e mail but never heard from him. I sent Hancock and Shock and half a dozen other "experts" e mails too but never heard back from them. They probaly all went to spam.

Yes, I know who you are talking about. I actually put this thread on Amazon first and most people there refused to comment on it. Probably because it causes rewriting history, and we don't want that now do we.

I believe THIS is what the other poster is referring to.
Obviously there is a lot of debate about the credibility of the photos and evidence.
Considering I do not personally know anyone involved with the research and have only seen/heard what has been presented to me via this magical opinion is still out to lunch.

I looked at the ATS threads on South American Atlantis and it does match well. Except it is in the wrong spot in relation to Spain. And South America does not have two islands sitting on its west side like the arrowhead mesa does. But this thread is about the underwater mesa matching the map. How can that be unless it was above water at one time?

But your post side steps the question of why there is an underwater feature that has been mapped in ancient times and labeled Atlantis, right where Plato said it was.

The glass pyramids. I think the first comment under picture says it all. If they are real, why are these photos not EVERYWHERE? Why is this not a known fact around the world?

I think that map looks like Greenland...

So does this guy, he has a nice site set up depicting just that

The question still stands. Regardless of degrees or pyramids or crystals or Noah or anything else, this underwater mesa looks like what was drawn on an ancient map. How does one get around that?

The Egyptian priest said Atlantis was right outside the entrance to the Pillars of Heracles.

For Atlantis to be Greenland, like Antarctica, we are talking about earth crust displacement. Which of course could be a perfect reason for a land mass to be sunk. But Greenland and Antarctica are not sunk. They are above the water.

I don't know.

Why isn't the fact that 9/11 is an inside job accurately being discussed in main stream sources? How come the MAJORITY of major events happening around the world aren't being discussed in mainstream sources??

Come on, now. You're on ATS and you're using the 'if it's not on the MSM then it's not real' argument?

Again, i'm not saying these ARE true. I honestly don't know and I wouldn't be surprised either way. But it's a weak argument just to say that the lack of mainstream sources means that it didn't happen.

I'm doing a bit of research on this myself, and I have found the following: The area in question is called the Great Meteor Seamount, named for a German research vessel named Meteor in the late 1930's. The geographical feature is something called a Guyot, which the Wikipedia article describes thus: "Guyots show evidence of having been above the surface with gradual subsidence through stages from fringed reefed mountain, coral atoll, and finally a flat topped submerged mountain". So there is a very good possibility that this was once above sea level. Interestingly enough, the whole area is referred to as the Atlantis-Meteor Seamount Complex. It is also only 500 meters down.

All I'm saying is that when I saw that image the first thing that came to mind is "hmm, that reminds me of Greenland."

Ya know.. people need to consider that there could be --> more than one Atlantis.

We know of Plato's Atlantis but who is to say this was just one island where these people settled. Look at the world today - Every nation always seeks to gain more ground and expand it's influence. It seems to me the Atlantians would have done the same. This means the technology they used would wind up being found in many other places around the globe. Or not, because it evolved over the years as did the people, who are now known as ancient residents of modern lands.

Your great great great great ect. grandfather could be an Atlantian. I think this map and the Google Earth correlation is interesting. I think we need to investigate these places and bring back to study all artifacts found. This information should be free to all the worlds citizens and not controlled by any governments. That's the only way we will make real progress.

So the question is: if this landmass was above water 12,000 years ago, did it have a bronze age civilisation, identical to that which the Mediterranean had 8,000 years later? And did Athens also have a bronze age civilisation, identical to how it would 8,000 years later? And did the later defeat the former in war? eaving no archaelogical evidence whatsoever, with a subsequent reversion to hunter/gather lifestyles?

Otherwise, Plato's tale is nothing but a tale.

As for Greenland, I think 2 miles of ice for the past million years (the ice cap was admittedly less extensive than today during some interglacials, such as the Eemian 125,000 years ago) rather puts paid to that? Or are we now invoking bronze age civilisations on Greenland and in Egypt and Greece 125,000 years ago?

Oh, and btw, why did Atlantis invade the Mediterranean when there were obvious, empty, fertile, landmasses closer to hand?

If 9/11 is an inside job, POLITICS would be the reason we are not hearing about it.

I would like the glass pyramids to be real. How cool would that be!

Excellent work Vonotar! 500 meters is only 1,640 feet. According to Graham Hancock’s web site, the one I was not allowed to link to, the top point of land there is only 73 feet deep. That must mean that the mountain top, the one which the video is claiming could be buildings, is only 73 feet down.

The Greenland link was interesting. Someone has done a lot of work there. Maybe I need to send them an e mail. I would like to see an opinion from someone who has spent their life and money working on Atlantis.
