Having ignored the myriad blog postings about people using Google Earth’s new ocean layer to discover Atlantis, and tracking about 20 different ridiculous stories, I finally had to ask, “What is it with these people?” Don’t they know Atlantis is in the Bahamas? Even Matt Damon knows that.
As IF there’s only one Atlantis. Is, like, every city Philadelphia? There’s totally more than one! There’s a New Atlantis off the coast of Japan, and a Little Atlantis here in the Gulf of Mexico. The one here in the Gulf is a buried pyramid on the West Florida shelf, really hard to get to because the weather kicks up whenever you get within its temporal vortex.
So, a story surfaced today that’s actually worth reading, because it uses new data (shiptracks) provided by the bathymasters themselves- Walter Smith and David Sandwell. These are two of the guys partially responsible for
carving their initials in compiling Google Ocean’s new blended product of satellite altimetry and multibeam echosounder data.
Ian Paul reveals their secret of Atlantis in a PCWorld story called “Google’s Atlantis Discovery Explained.” Finally, someone’s making sense!
