GOOGLE Earth creates a vast explorable map of the globe as seen from satellites but has the tool finally solved an ancient mystery? One YouTube member claims to have discovered the long lost city of Atlantis.

Google Earth uses satellite imagery to create a 3D picture of the globe in which users can explore with just a few clicks of a button.

Launched in 2001, Google Earth spans the globe capturing the highest of mountain ranges to the bottom of the ocean.

However, on this occasion, it appears Google users have spotted something spooky.

Has the lost city of Atlantis finally been discovered? Conspiracy theorists believe it might have.

The mystery of the lost city has hung in the air for thousands of years after the philosopher Plato told the story claiming his grandfather passed the legend on to him.

According to Ancient Code, Plato said: “Through violent earthquakes and floods, in a single day and night of misfortune [the whole race] was swallowed up by the Earth and the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea.”

A video posted on YouTube claims that Google Earth has discovered proof that Atlantis existed.

The footage shows a strange structure at the bottom of the ocean floor that does not appear to be natural.

The formation lies at a depth of over 4500 meters under the ocean off the coast of Africa. Strange and mysterious lies can be seen creating spooky geometric pattern under the water.

Could this be the site of the lost, washed away city?
That would be so freaky on a lot of good levels if they had.
Interesting, but unless that youtuber is willing to go on a deep sea dive he's got a whole lot of nothing.


Plato's story has the ring of true eyewitness accounts of a volcanic island eruption and subsequent sinking into the sea, a more recent eruption of Thera in the Eastern Mediterranean is a similar event although smaller. I wonder if a much larger eruption of Thera in the era described by Plato destroyed Atlantis (Thera) and put an end to the Atlantean/Athenian war certainly the location would make more sense. The Ancients had a tendency to rebuild their cities where previous cities once stood.

The most characteristic type of activity over the last 400.000 years has been the cyclic construction of shield volcanoes interrupted by large explosive and destructive events like the Minoan eruption about 3600 years ago.
