I didn’t see a thread on this (if there is one my apologies), but I was watching National Geographic over the weekend and they had a show about an exploratory team looking in southern Spain on a site they think might have been the lost city of Atlantis. If it’s not, then there might be something there in any case.
Anyone else see the show or read any of the articles on this (I did a quick google search and there are a bunch of articles on it like this one)? If so…thoughts? This is more along the line of witnessing, but for debate…is it possible that this IS Atlantis? The show had some interesting stuff in it, though some of it was tickling my BS detector (such as the methane pocket…I mean, this WAS a swamp, after all…so couldn’t the methane have just come from a swamp being buried by a tsunami??). They kept bringing up Troy as an example of a ‘lost’ city that was written off as legend in what was thought to be a completely fictional story and yet it turned out to be real (plus something about two lost cities in the Bible, which also was nudging my BS detector).
At any rate, from the show at least, there seems to be SOMETHING there…and in the sea about 30-50 feet below the surface (they looked like blocks of some kind and according to the show there shouldn’t be any geology down there like it). They also showed some ruins in southern Spain that were supposedly unlike any other architecture in the area and were from several thousand years ago that may have links back to Egypt.
So…anyone know anything more about this than what was on the show or in the various articles? Think it might be a lost city? Think it might be Atlantis or some distorted story with a core of truth (like Troy)? Think there is actually nothing there and these guys have been sniffing the preservative solutions again?
