**Back to the OP:
It seems that they might have found a sunken continent that dates back millions of years. I think it is a stretch to say that they have found
The scientists don't say that they found Atlantis if I didn't misread the article.
The MEDIA says it to gather some attention by tying completely unrelated areas together...
And it worked!
**Brazilian geologists on Monday announced the discovery, 1500km from Rio, of what could be part of the continent submerged when the Atlantic Ocean
was formed as Africa and South America drifted apart 100 million years ago.**
So "100 million years ago" the only "Atlanteans" you can hope for would have been Dinosaurs.
I will make the next stretch here - just for fun - so you know.
"Reptilians In Sunken Atlantean Mega-Structures Found! David Icke Was Right!"
Correction: I just read it again and there is a quote of "Roberto Ventura Santos, a top official at Brazil's Geology Service" where he stated that
"This could be the Brazilian Atlantis."
Silly him. He should have known that THAT would be taken VERY seriously and foresightful made some "quotation marks" at the beginning and at the end
of that fateful phrase "Atlantis".
Now considering him to be a "serious scientist" who wants to be taken "seriously" by his peers and also hopes in the future to receive some MORE
funding for "drilling in the area to retrieve more samples of these rocks... "...
...I think he REALLY wanted to make some clever remark and a witty joke to show all those spectators out there that he is not only a "dry"
He has humor and he wants all the people out there to know it.
All "Atlanteans" here should forgive him for his misleading and "lore-slandering" behavior - I hope.
