Atlantis is the name of a legendary city that was described by the philosopher Plato. For years, conspiracy theorists tried to discover the metropolis, and now it seems that we have finally succeeded. Google Earth may hold some clues regarding to the location of the mythical city of Atlantis. Some actually believe it was a real place, and at the same time the ruling power of the world. Sadly, they claim there was a natural disaster that managed to sink the entire island, rendering it hard to find.
Is It Atlantis Indeed?
Back in 2011, the Internet went crazy when people believed there was some footage regarding the outline of an ancient settlement in the middle of the ocean. The image was taken next to the Azores islands, Portugal, and it seemed to show a square shape. Inside of it, there were some perfectly straight lines. The footage was posted on YouTube, and more than 4.4 million people watched it. However, some voices claimed that Atlantis should be round, not square.
Following the previous footage, we now have Blake Cousins, who is a famous UFO hunter, who claims that the Azores are sitting on a huge land mass found in the ocean. With the help of Google Earth, he measured the mass to be 413 miles wide. According to him, this would match the size described by Plato. He further analyzed the islands, and saw several circular mountain ranges and lakes, which further confirms Plato’s description.
Antarctica is yet another possibility for Atlantis, but there are voices that claim it’s too small for an ancient settlement to have been there. However, some people still believe there is something hidden under the snow-covered surface, pointing to a dome-shaped object. Another footage shows the dome surrounded by cell-like squares that resemble ancient settlements found all over the world. Even so, it remains to be seen whether one of these is truly Atlantis or not.
