Highway to lost Atlantis?

In the search for the lost city of Atlantis, there are several sites which boast that the famed legend actually existed in their part of the world. One of these such places is the Bimini road. The Bimini road (or Bimini Highway, aka The Bimini Wall) is a 1600 foot length of large underwater stones precisely placed in the sea floor near Bimini, Bahamas, which some speculate could be the road to the ancient lost city of Atlantis.

Whether this is true or not, the way the stones are laid out are certainly even enough to question whether they are naturally formed. If they are a natural occurrence, how did it happen that they are so perfect? If they are indeed man-made, where did they lead? Was Bimini once the city of Atlantis? If not where was the city? Did it exist at all? Let's take a look at what some of the experts say, and then come up with our own opinion. Atlantis may be a fantasy, or perhaps it was real. Either way, it's an interesting subject to explore. So let's! Shall we?

Stones Unturned

Researching the site

Several different sets of explorers and scientists have researched the area of the Bimini Road, and just as many opinions seem to exist as to whether or not the find is a) real and not a naturally occurring phenomenon b)ancient or c)a hoax created by men of the 20th century. Most seem to rule out c pretty quickly, but the big debate is whether the site is naturally occurring or not. The most recent evidence seems to lend proof that it is ancient and man made. The 2006 team,comprised of Dr. Greg Little, Dr. Lora Little, archaeologist William Donato, British science writer Andy Collins, and Sue Collins found evidence, after looking beneath the surface of the road, of ancient tools and leveling stones used to build the road. This refutes the naturally occurring claim.

However, whether or not this was Atlantis, is still open for debate!

Making the Case - Is this the road to Atlantis?

Plato's Atlantis

Plato described it as an extraordinary Utopian society, thriving around 9,600 BC, which valued peace, art and wisdom, possessed advanced technological knowledge, and was wealthy beyond that of any civilization before or since.... a real Paradise Island!

Greg and his wife Lora noticed when diving and photographing this formation of underwater stones that some things weren't adding up as the geologists had reported.

The famous psychic researcher

as part of Ancient Atlantis.

Do You remember the Man from Atlantis? - I do - I must admit I really loved that show!

I was really upset when it was cancelled so soon too! Patrick Duffy was so cute!

Kinda creepy! It's a little too perfect to be naturally occurring, yet just random enough to make you wonder! I

      If this lost city is ever found, I hope it will be located somewhere in The Bahamas. Shared this lens to my Bahamas board on Pinterest and also at one of my other lenses using the Featured Lens module.

      This is fascinating information! There is so much speculation about where Atlantis was, hopefully someday we will know for sure.

      Given the power of nature and the temporary status of everything on the planet, the Bimini Road could well be a relic of a route to a lost civilization.

      I think Atlantis was a spaceship craft, which landed on stones made for this craft. So they can only find a stand of it. Great lens!

      I've not seen nor heard of the Bimini Road before reading this - very interesting and leaves much to speculation and the imagination.... Thanks for sharing this mysterious wonder.
