Scientists Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki have discovered some unusual structures while working off the coast of Cuba. The structures were found with the aid of sonar and robot submersibles at a depth of about 2,200 feet (670 meters), smack in the middle of the infamous Bermuda Triangle.
Samples that we recovered from the ocean bottom have justified our structures that we call megalithic structures. The samples are granite stone, completely polished, with some incrustations of fossils. Fossils of organic creatures that normally live on the surface, not on the ocean bottom. This is very interesting because this is evidence that the whole surface sank to the depth of 700 meters (2,297 feet, or about a half mile down),” Zalitzki was quoted as saying.
Among the sunken ruins, the researchers identified several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids, all of them larger than the ones in the Giza plateau.
Their report indicates the ancient city was flooded by rising waters while the land was sinking into the sea. These events most likely happened at the end of the last Ice Age, around 12,000 years ago. At the moment, this theory supports the legend of Atlantis.
So why haven’t we heard about it? Why are there no documentaries, expeditions to the area and museum exhibits showcasing the findings?
Well, according to journalist Luis Mariano Fernandez, the city had been discovered decades ago and access to the site was cut off during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The U.S. government discovered the alleged place during the Cuban missile crisis in the sixties. Nuclear submarines cruising in the Gulf (in deep sea) met pyramid structures. They immediately shut down the site and took control of him [sic] and the objects, in order that it will not come to Russians hands.”
Using a remotely operated underwater vehicle, Weinzweig and Zalitzki discovered huge pyramid structures that were similar, albeit much larger than Egyptian ones.
They believe the stones used in the construction of these megalithic monuments had to be very large, perhaps weighing several hundred tons. However, mainstream science does not admit to the existence of advanced technology in prehistoric times. Something is amiss here.
“It has been confirmed that the stones were cut, carved and polished to make them fit together and thus form larger structures. On the strange inscriptions, some of them similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics, very little is known, except that they are very abundant and found in almost all parts of the field. There have also appeared symbols and drawings whose meaning is unknown,” writes Fernandez.
Zalitzki has found similar symbols on the island of Cuba and she believes they are identical to those found engraved on the underwater structures. Interestingly enough, legends of the primitive cultures (such as the Olmecs) in the northern part of Central America tell how their ancestors came from Atlanticú, an island that sank during a cataclysm.
Several archaeologists have stated that the Olmecs might have devolved from the Atlantean survivors, the remnants of their superior culture fading during the course of thousands of years. Atlantis only survived in their mythology and through a passing reference made by Plato.
It is worth noting that many unconventional historians believe there is a strong connection between the Atlanteans and the ancient Egyptians. They believe the Egyptian culture was influenced, even guided by the survivors of the Atlantis catastrophe.
Their claims appear to be supported by the discovery of pyramids and sphinxes off the coast of Cuba and corroborated by legends from all around the world.
However, until complete evidence (re)surfaces, we are left to speculate, as we always have.
