Massive 8.5 Mile Pyramid Discovered on Google Earth Believed To be Atlantis
Giant ancient pyramid could be site of mythological city
A strange object the shape of a pyramid has been discovered at the bottom of the ocean leading researchers to believe they have found the site the mythological City of Atlantis.
The mysterious structure, estimated between 3.5 and 11 miles across, was discovered on Google Earth in the Pacific Ocean just west of Mexico.
A video outlining the discovery was uploaded to YouTube and has drawn massive speculation that could be an ancient sunken city or UFO.
The "discovery" was made by Argentinian Marcelo Igazusta who described the object as "an intense light in the Pacific Ocean
According to The Express: Scott C Waring, an alien conspiracy theorist, said: "It is a perfect pyramid that measures over 8.5 miles across one side of its base. That's a conservative estimate, it could be up to 11 miles across.”
He suggested it could symbolize an ancient civilization, or even something alien.
Conspiracy theorists claim it could be an undersea ancient pyramid or even connected to aliens.GOOGLE
He said: ”Even if this is not a UFO that landed in the ocean that was being used as an alien base, it still is a monumental discovery.
"A 8.5-mile pyramid...biggest the world has ever known, and it’s right off of Mexico, near the ancient Mayan and Aztec pyramids."
His reasoning that aliens might be involved?
He said: "Humans could never have built such a construction. Only aliens could accomplish making such a massive structure."
Viewers of the video have said it could be the site of an ancient submerged city or even Atlantis.
Simon Clark posted that it should be investigated to see exactly what it is.
But another poster pointed out there was no evidence it was anything more than an undersea mountain.
He said: "I don't understand why you're calling this a UFO? It is unidentified, yes (though most likely just the mountains of the sea floor) but it's not flying, so not a UFO."
The fabled Atlantis is an Ancient Greek myth – the name means the Island of Atlas – and was first mentioned by the philosopher Plato.
The Atlantis military attempt to storm Ancient Athens but despite overwhelming odds the Athenians repel them.
The allegory is supposed to suggest that the power of the organized democratic state will beat the power of a tyrannical system – the basic theme of his later work The Republic.
Atlantis and its inhabitants incur the wrath of the gods for the attack and the whole lot is submerged by the ocean, giving rise to the myth.
