Sunken city off the coast of cuba.

 ‘Lost city’ found beneath Cuban waters

A team of explorers working off the western coast of Cuba say they have discovered what they think are the ruins of a submerged city built thousands of years ago.
Researchers from a Canadian company used sophisticated sonar equipment to find and film stone structures more than 2,000 feet (650 metres) below the sea’s surface.

They say they still do not understand the exact nature of their discovery, and plan to start a thorough analysis of the site – off the tip of the Guanahacabibes Peninsula – in January.

Advanced Digital Communications is one of four firms working in a joint venture with President Fidel Castro’s government to explore Cuban waters, which hold hundreds of treasure-laden ships from the Spanish colonial era.

The explorers first spotted the underwater city last year, when scanning equipment started to produce images of symmetrically organized stone structures reminiscent of an urban development.

 It’s a really wonderful structure which really looks like it could have been a large urban centre
 
In July, the researchers returned to the site with an explorative robot device capable of highly advanced underwater filming work.

The images the robot brought back confirmed the presence of huge, smooth blocks with the appearance of cut granite.

Some of the blocks were built in pyramid shapes, others were circular, researchers said.

They believe these formations could have been built more than 6,000 years ago, a date which precedes the great pyramids of Egypt by 1,500 years.

“It’s a really wonderful structure which really looks like it could have been a large urban centre,” ADC explorer Paulina Zelitsky told the Reuters news agency.

“However, it would be totally irresponsible to say what it was before we have evidence.”

The thing in this news item from the BBC that worries me is the figure of 650m depth. When would that ever have been at the surface? The sea levels are only supposed to have risen 140m maximum. There would have to have been some subsidence on an Atlantean scale for that to have been possible.

Chance of being real… 5%

    Anything more recent?

  3. You asked when what is now 650m depth would have been at the surface. The answer is before the Genesis Flood.

    • “before the Genesis Flood.” LMFAO

  4. A pyramid larger by far than even the great one at Giza exists just off the western tip of Cuba, roughly 100 miles east of Cancun Mexico. Stones seen on video resemble perfectly square blocks of mammoth size, and making more structures than just pyramids.
    Land masses slip and slide over massive reservoirs of oil. The Carribean is nothing but one vast deep oil field. When the BP disaster took place, it happened at a drill depth never before performed. Pressure was immense at over 28,000 feet of depth for the drillhead. If this pressure was only water, it would be 7.5lbs per foot, for 210,000 psi. That’s 210,000 pounds or 105 tons of pressure per square inch… but since water depth was only 5,000 feet, and the soil there weighs roughly twice that, pressure was likely over 300,000 psi., carried all the way up to point of the broken pipe like a giant zit.
