Atlantis Off The Coast of Cuba
Back in December I posted a list of some of the places where Atlantis has been found: off the coasts of Spain, Cyprus, and Tampa, Florida. Add Cuba to this list. Sonar images taken off the coast of Cuba show "massive stones in oddly symmetrical square and pyramid shapes in the deep-sea darkness." And as we all know, anything mysterious on the ocean floor must be Atlantis.

Does nobody know the truth??? Atlantis is in the Pegasus Galaxy. Of course, that's top secret information so don't go blabbing!
P.S. I am a sad, sad Stargate nerd.

Meh.. even if the reports aren't bogus, and there are actually sonar images that back it up, bear in mind that if a computer's dealing with the scans, then it's *going* to have blocky and pyramidal structures, because computers don't do analog very well.

Just a guess, but this is probably similar to the "road" they found on the sea-floor (somewhere around The Bahamas) that you can see from a plane. It actually looks like fitted stones (huge ones).
Turns out it was wave action on a strip of limestone exposed through the sand.

Ha, found a link...

There's also a a large landmass a few dozen miles off the north and western coasts of Cuba, from which mysterious transmissions emanate, viz. 'Joey', 'Frasier', and 'The Sopranos', which seems to show a colony of Italians making a fairly good living for themselves amidst a hostile native population.

The UK pyramidiot Andrew Collins wrote a book a few years ago claiming Cuba was Atlantis. But he also thinks that there are Giffins living in West London...

Atlantis was actually a parable, but that dosen't keep the wackos from claiming it existed...

You know, Peter and Lois from Quahog.

Or is that Kathie Lee Giffin?

Don't be ridiculous. That's obviously dark Ry'leh which lies sleeping there.

the theory of Atlantis being located off the coast of Cuba is a radical idea. From what I have gathered, not a whole lot, is that they have found pyramid like structures with some kind of a metal coating. Plato's description of atlantis has similar structures coated at with different types of metals GOLD being the most dominate. Other scholars have indicated that the pyramids of Egypt had these same coverings, like a cap of gold on the tops. The caps would produce electric activity.

Hmmm. Why is it that whenever anything underwater is discovered that it has to be "Atlantis"? There are literally hundreds of underwater structures found all around the world in the past 50-years...Cleopatra's palace in the late 1990's is one that comes to mind. Yes, an underwater discovery off the west coast of Cuba is nothing short of fantastic, but let's allow the experts to decipher the findings before we all start jumping to radical conclusions. Atlantis? Perhaps. Or perhaps not. I for one would like to see what the professionals, experts and linguists determine before I start believing in something weird. Wouldn't we all like ot avoid getting egg on our respective faces?

this theory on atlantis being real is a myth. No part of Atalantis being on this universe is true. Plato was planning on writing a trilogy which included creation of man, creation of nature, and creation of atlantis. He never even got started on the book about atlantis. He made up the story which was passed down from generation to generation

So, a story was passed down from generation to generation and finally told to Plato, who made the whole thing up?

You seem to know a lot about Plato, was he a close friend of yours?
