PYRAMIDS DISCOVERED UNDER WATER OFF COAST OF CUBA, MIGHT BE ATLANTIS


JUNE 4, 2020

Sunken City in Cuba



The remains of what may be a 6000-year-old city immersed in deep waters off the west coast of Cuba was discovered by a team of

Offshore engineer Paulina Zelitsky and her husband, Paul Weinzweig and her son Ernesto Tapanes used sophisticated sonar and video videotape devices to find “some kind of megaliths you ‘d find on Stonehenge or Easter Island,” Weinzweig said in an interview.

“Some structures within the complex may be as long as 400 meters wide and as high as 40 meters,” he said. “Some are sitting on top of each other. They show very distinct shapes and symmetrical designs of a non-natural kind. We’ve shown them to scientists in Cuba, the U.S., and elsewhere, and nobody has suggested they are natural.”

Moreover, an anthropologist affiliated with the Cuban Academy of Sciences has said that still photos were taken from the videotape clearly show “symbols and inscriptions,” Mr. Weinzweig said. It is not yet known in what language the inscriptions are written.

The sonar images, he added, bear a remarkable resemblance to the pyramidal design of Mayan and Aztec temples in Mexico.

Mr. Weinzweig said it is too early to draw firm conclusions from the evidence collected so far. The research team plans another foray to the site — off the Guanahacabibes Peninsula on Cuba’s western tip. It hopes to return again, this time with the first deep-water mobile excavator, equipped with functions needed for on-site archeological evaluation, including the ability to blow the sand off the stone.

2. hmm

I wish this were true but it is very likely not. See https://badarchaeology.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/an-underwater-city-west-of-cuba/.

Apparently this is from a YouTube video:



That is from 7 years ago and not corroborated. Still no further details on this ... no high-res images? Not sure archaeology-world.com is a reputable source, sorry.

4. These are the things that should be front page news, this and anything about global warming.

Instead we deal with a fucking idiot 24/7.

Thanks for the link.

5. I wonder if there was a land bridge between Cuba and Cancun?

That would explain how that civilization was above water at some time.

13. Absolutely! I read years ago that Cuba, which is partially mountainous, is a remnant of the Andes,

which people identify only as the chain they've seen extending the length of the Western side of South America. Stuck in my mind then, have thought of it often, since.

6. 6,000 years old - can you imagine?

That would be a fascinating site to explore.

8. So what happened in the last 6000 years that would have put the structures

In "deep water?" It would be a very fascinating discovery if it is what it is claimed to be.

9. Fascinating. I've always wondered that if an ancient village was built on

sand and an earthquake hit that village and causing the sand to be completely washed away, would it cause it to sink?

11. Found this information in the article:

Geologists have recently hypothesized that a land bridge once connected Cuba to Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. And portions of the Cuban island are believed to have been submerged in the sea on three separate occasions in the distant past.

The structures are on a plateau that forms the bottom of what is thought to be a mud volcano, 650 to 700 meters beneath the surface of the ocean, and along what is clearly a geological fault line. “It’s well known that ancient civilizations liked to build at the base of volcanoes because the land is fertile. So that’s suggestive,” Mr. Weinzweig said.

One tantalizing possibility, entirely speculative for now, is that if the legendary sunken continent of Atlantis is ever proven to have existed, these structures may have been submerged during the same cataclysm.

Mr. Weinzweig simply says that more information is needed. “We’d prefer to stay away from that subject. This is something of great potential scientific interest, but it must involve serious authorities on ancient civilizations.”
