Greek legend tells us that the city of Atlantis sunk into the ocean over the period of a single day, 11,000 years ago. Since that time, a mix of treasure hunters, scientists and philosophers have obsessed over it’s real location under the waves.
The lost city is thought to be partially intact, standing in silence somewhere at the bottom of the deep blue sea…
The Bimini Road
In 1968, a diver off the coast of North Bimini Island, Bahamas, discovered what is now referred to as the Bimini underwater road. It consisted of a series of stones lined up 18 feet below the surface of the sea.
The stone structure was obviously man-made and arranged into a line that stretched out for just over half a mile.
Each stone had been meticulously spaced out to form what appears to be an underwater road.
As soon as this strange stone formation was discovered a large majority of excited experts jumped on the Atlantis bandwagon – could this be a road from the fabled city?
Whilst some experts were excited – the remainder were not so impressed. They believed that the stone structure was merely a freak of nature caused by geological forces.
A curious element of this mystery is a prediction made in 1938 by Edgar Cayce…
“A portion of the temples may yet be discovered under the slime of ages and sea water near Bimini… Expect it in ‘68 or ‘69 – not so far away.”
Dr Greg Little led the most recent expedition into the Bimini Road structure. His more intense investigation led to a discovery of a similar band of rocks beneath the first lot.
He concluded that the original road structure found was built on top of a wall or water dock.
But many experts are still not convinced – they believe the road is nothing more than a simple tessellated pavement.
A tessellated pavement is a natural phenomenon created by concretions of shell and sand. They fuse together and form hard sedimentary rock over time. This rock then fractures in various straight lines and precise angles.
Could this be the explanation behind the Bimini underwater road?
