Hey thanks for that info ...Can you imagine a # 8 earthquake wow ...I though I read in one of the previous links that there were eye witness accounts of the sea going dry and then the wave hit ...
But but but...I thought there was a "conspiracy of knowledge" afoot?! I mean, if THEY are "hiding the truth about ancient Egypt from us" then why would this EVER have been brought to our attention? Gee, maybe because there is no conspiracy and as scientists and archaeologists find new things, they adjust their understanding accordingly? Yes, I lol'd...
Little late to the party, aren't we?
I posted this back in April

Just letting the dude know, since he said "not sure if this has been posted yet."
Now he can be sure. I'm all for refresher courses.
I would love to see a map of where this was discovered. I think the question is, whatText caused this to go to the bottom of the sea.
French Marine archaeologist Frank Goddio explains text on the stele of Heracleion on a barge in an Alexandria naval base June 7, 2001. Statues, sunken ships, gold coins and jewelry are among the submerged treasures that Goddio has uncovered in the ancient submerged city of Heracleion off the coast of Alexandria.
NAPLES, Italy (USTCNS) --- Military Sealift Command's ocean-going tug and salvage ship USNS Mohawk-along with divers from Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit Two-completed a dive exercise off Bulgaria Navy in June.
The exercise took place off the port city of Varna, May 30 to June 7, and included cross training in diving and salvage, diving capabilities, diving medicine, and emergency procedures.
U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria Dick Miles, who recognized the ship and crewmembers in a personal message to Vice Adm. Greg Johnson, commander of the U.S. Navy's Sixth Fleet, praised the ship and its embarked divers for a job well done
It was a busy month for Mohawk, as the ship also completed a dive exercise off Alexandria, Egypt, June 20-21. (FROM MILITARY SEALIFT COMMAND - EUROPE PUBLIC AFFAIRS).

Just some more enlightenment on the geological side of the mystery. It is still being discussed and analysed. Here is an interesting article on Geotimes;
"The epicenter of the quake that caused the tsunami is still uncertain. Stanley, who will give a presentation at the AGU meeting, believes the earthquake formed on the opposite seashore, closer to Turkey or Crete, with the wave traveling 800 kilometers across the Mediterranean. He questions the idea that such an earthquake caused the subsidence of the ancient cities in the Bay of Aboukir".
It sounds similar to the east coast of Japan in some ways. There was a huge earthquake underwater very close to Crete. There are some first hand accounts by eyewitnesses of the 365 AD doom that happened on many shores of The Mediterranean. Fascinating reading.
Also in this article we discover that;
"Gold Islamic and Byzantine coins found in the bay point to the legendary cities surviving past the seventh and into the eighth century. Using the Egyptian and Arabic measurements of the height of the Nile River, Stanley zeroed in on A.D. 741-742 as a time of flooding when “something failed.” "
"Although he has not dismissed an earthquake as the cause, he argues that the Canopic branch of the Nile River was switching back and forth during that time. Flooding in the delta could have just as easily caused the slumping failure of the land with the sediments becoming heavily water-laden and physically unstable, he says. “They really didn’t have much of a foundation. It was an accident waiting to happen.”"

Farage is full of rubbish. His party's policies are a lot like the BNP. He does not pay his tax as he has a small family fortune (talking millions) tied up in all sorts of tricks and he clearly has nothing but contempt for the working class, as he seems to think posing with a pint and a fag will trick us into think he's "one of us". Disgusting little man. He's a country toff posing as a local lad.
