Treasure hunter, Raymond Brown was already an old hand at discovering and prospering from his 1960s finds of sunken Spanish galleons, around Bimini and Andros Islands, in the Bahamas, when 14,000 feet of under water, Brown discovered one of the most important archeological finds in the history of humankind.
This clip from a very old episode of the History Channel, hosted by Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy interviews him and re-enacts Brown’s amazing story.
But the Cold War intervened, when the US government allegedly discovered this place during the Cuban missile crisis in the early 1960s. Nuclear submarines cruising deep in the Gulf encountered the pyramid structures and immediately shut down and took control over the site and its objects, in order that it would not fall to Russians hands.
Several subsequent teams of French and other explorers have found the exact same ruins of a great city, resembling a cross between Mexico’s Teotihuacan, Egypt’s Giza complex (complete with sphinxes), crossed with the Acropolis of Ancient Greece, with its Doric columns.
And now, a Canadian couple, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, in conjunction with the Cuban government have come forward with vast photographic evidence of this find, off the western coast of Cuba, taken from a submersible vehicle.
Moreover, the physical anthropology (DNA) of some peoples in the Yucatan and other areas of Central America, plus their corresponding legends of a lost “Atlanticu” suggest that three families survived the Atlantean cataclysm, to populate and create the great, pyramid-building civilizations of Mesoamerica, from their ancestral memory of the once-great city-state, now buried deep beneath the waves.
Early 20th century Western archaeologists who discovered the incredible pyramid complexes of Mesoamerica, hidden within the almost-impenetrable jungles of the Guatemalan wilderness (and thus, spared the depredations of the 1500s Spanish Conquistadors) were struck by the possibility that these numerous pyramid complexes, found throughout Mesoamerica were the actual remnants of Platos’ Atlantis.
They were roundly ridiculed by the scientific establishment – and sometimes their careers were destroyed. But it is possible that these archeological pioneers were onto the truth, after all.
It will be so fantastic to see what more comes from this latest discovery!
