right were that trench is there is a plate and apparently that square configuration is normal around plate boundaries. Had this girl i met and she told me way more about geology than i ever wanted to know.So id check with a geologist email them and ask them what it is. Amazing what will put up with when trying to date huh?
First of all they bridged over the zones of sea which surrounded the
ancient metropolis, making a road to and from the royal palace. And at
the very beginning they built the palace in the habitation of the
god and of their ancestors, which they continued to ornament in
successive generations, every king surpassing the one who went
before him to the utmost of his power, until they made the building
a marvel to behold for size and for beauty. And beginning from the sea
they bored a canal of three hundred feet in width and one hundred feet
in depth and fifty stadia in length, which they carried through to the
outermost zone, making a passage from the sea up to this, which became
a harbour, and leaving an opening sufficient to enable the largest
vessels to find ingress. Moreover, they divided at the bridges the
zones of land which parted the zones of sea, leaving room for a single
trireme to pass out of one zone into another, and they covered over
the channels so as to leave a way underneath for the ships; for the
banks were raised considerably above the water. Now the largest of the
zones into which a passage was cut from the sea was three stadia in
breadth, and the zone of land which came next of equal breadth; but
the next two zones, the one of water, the other of land, were two
stadia, and the one which surrounded the central island was a
stadium only in width. The island in which the palace was situated had
a diameter of five stadia. All this including the zones and the
bridge, which was the sixth part of a stadium in width, they
surrounded by a stone wall on every side, placing towers and gates
on the bridges where the sea passed in. The stone which was used in
the work they quarried from underneath the centre island, and from
underneath the zones, on the outer as well as the inner side. One kind
was white, another black, and a third red, and as they quarried,
they at the same time hollowed out double docks, having roofs formed
out of the native rock. Some of their buildings were simple, but in
others they put together different stones, varying the colour to
please the eye, and to be a natural source of delight. The entire
circuit of the wall, which went round the outermost zone, they covered
with a coating of brass, and the circuit of the next wall they
coated with tin, and the third, which encompassed the citadel, flashed
with the red light of orichalcum.

There may be no evidence for Atlantis other than Plato's accounts however there is substantial evidence to suggest that our Earth has experienced an axis tilt/pole shift in the past.
Who knows what will turn up after the next event. My point is Humanity is far older than recorded history would lead us to believe.
Below is link to image. I can't seem to get my media to bring up any of my images I have saved in that directory on ATS.
I have proof that it was once was in the Caribbean Sea.
I believe that I have proof of an underwater building that has yet to be discovered. I have not been able in all of my research to find anyone who has discovered this building or the remains of it.
Yes this is what I believe is part of Atlantis. I need to find out if anyone has been down there and researched this building or what is left of it. Anyone with information of this please let me know.
I am looking for anything on the geology of the Caribbean Sea along with any research. Please help.
The theory which has been so long and so frequently the subject of controversy, namely, that Plato's Atlantis was in the Atlantic, seems untenable in the light of modern science. The theory that Plato's Atlantis was Minoan Crete, on the contrary, seems to stand up very well before recent archeological discoveries. At any rate it deserves to be more widely known, for it certainly seems to meet fairly completely the facts which the old Egyptian priest was trying to tell Solon and Solon to tell Plato of the destruction of what seems to have been the then already nearly forgotten civilization of Minoan Crete.
