The sunken city of the Caribbean: Forbidden archaeology?


As a follow-up to our previous post What Happened to The Sunken City of Cuba?, here is a more recent article speculating on the existence of Atlantis in Cuba. Ivan Petricevic asks, “Atlantis, the lost empire and the submerged city of the coast of Cuba, a myth or reality?

Well over a decade, a team of underwater explorers from a Canadian exploration company was mapping the ocean floor and near the western coast of Cuba. While exploring, the team’s sonar equipment detected all of a sudden, a bewildering array of stone structures, located about 650 meters below the surface. The team of researchers had found a series of unusual formations; smooth blocks, crests and different geometric shapes at the bottom of the ocean.

The company, responsible for the finding: Advanced Digital Communications, suggested that the structures found off the western coast of Cuba were ancient monuments of an unknown ancient civilization. Symmetrically arranged stones, which appeared to be remnants of some type of ancient urban development certainly point towards a highly developed society that could have inhabited the region in the distant past.

But what happened to this incredible discovery that was on the news over a decade ago? Why are we not exploring any further? Is it possible that this discovery will change the way we look at history? Our origins? Many people would agree that there are a hundreds of discoveries that are kept from society on purpose. Is the sunken city off the coast of Cuba one of them?

Geologist Manuel Iturralde remained open-minded saying: “These are extremely peculiar structures, and they have captured our imagination,” said Iturralde, who is director of research at Cuba’s Natural History Museum. Iturralde has studied countless underwater formations over the years, but said, “If I had to explain this geologically, I would have a hard time.”

Estimating that it would have taken 50,000 years for such structures to have sunken to the depth at which they were said to be found, Iturralde added “50,000 years ago there wasn’t the architectural capacity in any of the cultures we know of to build complex buildings.” A specialist in underwater archaeology at Florida State University added “It would be cool if they were right, but it would be real advanced for anything we would see in the New World for that time frame. The structures are out of time and out-of-place.”

Many researchers remained extremely skeptical about the discovery since a lot of people jumped to conclusions drawing parallels to the ancient Atlantean empire. Soon after the discovery was made, the National Museum and National Geographic displayed great interest in further investigating the area, but for some unknown reason it never happened. Ten years after the incredible discovery was made by Pauline and Paul Weinzweig, owners of Advanced Digital Communications, the discovery that was labeled as the finding of Cuba’s Atlantis and the lost city of the Caribbean was simply forgotten.

Ancient texts and many religions speak of a massive flood that shuck planet Earth in the distant past. This great deluge is said to have changed our planet and its ancient inhabitants forever. In recent years, there have been numerous discoveries of submerged structures and even entire cities which remained hidden for thousands of years.

These submerged structures point to a much different time on Earth, when our planet’s oceans were very different. Tales of sunken empires have been present in societies around the world for thousands of years. While most of them are believed to be a myth, such as those of Ancient Atlantis and Ancient Mu, other “tales” have proven to be more than just stories. [. . .]
