SATELLITE PICS REVEAL STRANGE GRID IN BAHAMAS

The mystery of the Bahamas and their lost ancient heritage continues to grow, and despite all attempts by establish­ment science to dismiss the topic it persists.

Recently Angela Micol of the web site SatelliteDiscoveries.com has identified another remarkable anomaly in the area. A Landsat visible image of the region to the East of Cay Sal Bank shows a large gridded pattern which seems to defy any attempt at natural explanation.

According to Micol, Archaeologist Bill Donato is planning an investigation of the feature.

Donato and his colleagues Greg and Lora Little, underwater archaeologists, have produced a great deal of evidence lately suggesting that many features in the Bahamas, including the celebrated Bimini Road and an underwater plat­form near Andros Island, were part of prehistoric port facilities, and very much older than conventional archaeology would have us believe (see Atlantis Rising #51, “Atlantis in the Bahamas”).

Micol has also identified several mysterious linear features near Andros, which suggest human engineering of some type and demand further on-site investigation.

NANTUCKET’S LOST WORLD

Evidence of drowned worlds off the coast of New England has the scientific world abuzz, and while many talk smugly of how the new discoveries might fit into conventional theory about the area, so far, not enough is known about the bottom of Nantucket Sound to draw any firm conclusions.

It is safe to say that over 5,500 years ago there were forests where now there is sea. In the remains of those forests, perhaps beside former riverbeds, some scientists hope to learn answers to the riddles of human history in North America. Engineers mapping a proposed wind farm were astonished to discover the ancient remains under 6 feet of mud.

While it is generally conceded that sea levels would have risen considerably at the end of the ice age, the full im­plications of that fact have only begun to be investigated. According to conventional science, roughly 10,000 years ago much of the world’s water was locked up in glaciers which began to melt rapidly, inundating large coastal regions all over the world. Graham Hancock has argued in his book Underworld that we should look for the remains of pre­diluvian civilization in these regions. Hancock also makes the point that, while scientists usually think of the rise in ocean levels as gradual, in fact, it was often sudden and catastrophic as massive ice dams gave way releasing immense torrents in an instant. In such a scenario it is easy to see how a developed seaside civilization could have been de­stroyed in a flash, leaving only folktales in the surviving—more primitive—areas further inland.

While woolly mastadon teeth have been pulled up miles from shore, so far scientists have found no human arti­facts in the area. Victor Mastone, director and chief archaeologist of the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeol­ogy, however, thinks such discoveries ultimately will come.

It is still uncertain if the necessary funding will be forthcoming. While some experts doubt the worth of such ef­forts, Mastone and his team plan to follow through.
