Alleged Pyramid submerged in the Atlantic fuels theories about Atlantis
A few years ago, an alleged underwater pyramid 60 meters high, whose base is 8,000 square meters, was discovered. Its longevity is 20,000 years and its location exactly coincides with that given by Plato about Atlantis.
Small discoveries have been rewriting the history of humanity little by little and things that were improbable in the past are now a reality . Among those finds is that of a possible 20,000-year-old pyramid in the depths of the Atlantic.
This mysterious archaeological find has generated a lot of controversy within the scientific community. This is because it could be the missing proof of the existence of Atlantis .
A 20,000-year-old Pyramid in the Atlantic?
Some press releases in Portugal claimed that a massive pyramid had been discovered under the sea , just off the islands of San Miguel and Teceira, in the Azores.
The Azores are a set of 9 volcanic islands more than a thousand kilometers from Lisbon . Interestingly, the pyramidal construction is located in exactly the same location given by Plato for Atlantis.
The Greek philosopher said that the lost continent was located on an island in the Atlantic, specifically “beyond” the Pillars of Hercules. Exactly where the Azores are.
Plato also said that the island was a military power that existed 9,000 years ago , before the time of Solon. It also describes it as larger than Libya and Asia combined.
The level of detail used by the Greek led many researchers to propose different theories . In the same way, the fact that the source is only his unverified accounts caused other studies to consider it as fiction .
The fact, the most reliable sources say that it is only a natural formation , but doubts always arise on this controversial subject.
The Azores are also around the fault lines between the North American, Eurasian, and African tectonic plates. Quite an unstable area.
The strange underwater structure found under the Ocean is believed to be a pyramid with a square base, perfectly oriented to its cardinal points .
Proof of the existence of Atlantis?
The researchers say the structure was submerged at least 20,000 years ago , when the world’s glaciers melted.
According to reports from Portugal, Diocleciano Silva was the first to discover it. Early estimates suggest the structure is at least 60 meters tall , with a square base of 8,000 square meters.
Silva claims that he discovered it while he was on a fishing trip and ran into it when he used bathymetric equipment he had on his boat. Bathymetry is the study of the depth of water.
However, not everyone is convinced if it really is a pyramid . Many people say that it is possible that it is a volcanic hill and not the remains of Atlantis.
In statements made to Diario Insular, Silva said:
“The pyramid is perfectly shaped, and is apparently oriented along the cardinal points.”
To date, this mystery remains in force and no specialist has been able to confirm or dismiss the finding made by Silva. Is this really proof of the existence of Atlantis?
