The 9,000-year-old underground megalithic settlement of Atlit Yam. Not far off the coast of the village of Atlit in the Mediterranean Sea, near Haifa in Israel, lies the submerged ruins of the ancient Neolithic site of Atlit Yam.
The prehistoric settlement, which dates back to the 7 th millennium BC, has been so well preserved by the sandy seabed that a mysterious stone circle still stands as it was first erected, and dozens of human skeletons lay undisturbed in their graves. Atlit Yam is one of the oldest and largest sunken settlements ever found and sheds new light on the daily lives of its ancient inhabitants. Clues to Lost Prehistoric Code Discovered in Mesopotamia.

Les géants. A travers toutes les époques, sous l’Empire romain, au Moyen-âge, au XIXème siècle, jusqu’à aujourd’hui, dans le monde entier, des scientifiques, des archéologues, des hommes d’Eglise, des voyageurs, des historiens témoignent, cherchent, compilent dans des documentations très denses les traces et les preuves des géants, d’hommes ayant mesuré jusqu’à plus de 4 mètres.
Voici quelques témoignages sur ces hommes d’une stature extraordinaire. Giant Pyramids and Sphinxes Found in The Bermuda Triangle. Two scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, working off the coast of Cuba and using a robot submersible, have confirmed that a gigantic city exists at the bottom of the ocean.
The site of the ancient city — that includes several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids plus other structures — amazingly sits within the boundaries of the fabled Bermuda Triangle. According to a report by Arclein of Terra Forming Terra, Cuban Subsea Pyramid Complex, the evidence points to the city being simultaneously inundated with rising waters and the land sinking into the sea.
This correlates exactly with the Atlantis legend. The disaster may have occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. As the Arctic icecap catastrophically melted it caused sea levels to rise quickly around the world, especially affecting the Northern Hemisphere. Arclein observes: “At the time uplifted portions of the Mid Atlantic Ridge subsided also including Lyonese and the home islands and land mass around the Azores.

Freeborn, August 2012 -Thus it came to pass that the day the planet was to die was upon them, and there was no escape. On joue les archéologues à San Augustin. On a 4 jours avant de commencer notre mission au refuge de Cali.
On décide de partir visiter San Augustin. Après une pause de nuit à Popayan et une fondue savoyarde (sans plus), on choisit de couper les 6h de route de terre vers San Augustin en s’arrêtant dans des sources d’eau chaude. Il fait vraiment pas chaud dehors et on doit courir pour remonter au bassin d’eau chaude après avoir descendu le toboggan. Si on ajoute l’altitude et le contraste chaud/froid, on arrive bien essoufflé dans l’eau. Serrés au fond du bus, nous sommes contents d’atteindre San Augustin après avoir été secoués dans tous les sens. Les statues sont superbes : positionnées devant les sarcophages en pierre, elles jouent les gardiens des tombeaux.
