Thread: Underwater Pyramids

  1. #1

    Default Underwater Pyramids

    From the G8 Summit 2000 in Okinawa
    Masaaki Kimura, a professor at the University of the Ryukyus answered what he thinks of the undersea structure based on the latest findings.

    "It's a true undersea ruin", said Mr. Kimura, who is a leading Japanese marine geologist who studies undersea ruins.

    In the interview, Mr. Kimura was asked the following points; if the ruins were artificial, and what time period they were built.

    He replied, "These are ruins, and to me, the fact has already been proved. Scientific conclusion is that the ruins are indeed artificial. A school of Japanese marine geologists agreed on the outcome. We found that the ruins are at least 6000 years old. It could go back another 4000 years when we consider the length of time before they sunk into the water."
    Okinawa was once connected to the Chinese continent. The geologic chronology shows that the area in Yonaguni was already underwater 6000 years ago. Mr. Kimura says that when they try to figure out the time period the ruins were built, the estimate is about 10,000 years ago.

    Drills we use to investigate ruins have improved recently, so with the help of the latest equipment, we will have a scientific conclusion on this matter in the near future."

    It was the Stone Age 10,000 years ago, primitive people lived and hunted then. The advanced Egyptian civilization was formed after this. Was there another civilization before that?

    Mr. Kimura replied, "Reviewing chronology in history should be left to the archaeologists and historians, and even though there is scientific evidence to explain the ruins, it might be difficult to come to an agreement with the archaeologists, because doing so changes history."

    "The historians say that such a fact can not be true. We found the ruins, so they should see it for themselves, or at least they should study the data I collected."
    Mr. Kimura says it might be just a matter of time before the historians start investigating. He is confident that there is a sunken civilization.

    This is very good info cus there is something called the 6000 year barrier in modern history.

    These so-called scientists seem to draw a blank when it comes to acknowledging any kind of advanced civilization that exsited prior to 6000 years.....

    One would imagine that such a mind-boggling find would be the most exciting piece of news an archaeologist could possibly hope to learn. Even so, outside of the “Ancient American” and CNN’s single report, the pall of silence covering all the facts about Okinawa’s structures screens them from view more effectively then their location at the bottom of the sea. Why? How can this appalling neglect persist in the face of a discovery of such unparalleled magnitude? At the risk of accusations of paranoia, one might conclude that a real conspiracy of managed information dominates America’s well-springs of public knowledge.

    Divers Find World's Oldest Building
    by Trushar Barot

    A STRUCTURE thought to be the world's oldest building, nearly twice the age of the great pyramids of Egypt, has been discovered. The rectangular stone ziggurat under the sea off the coast of Japan could be the first evidence of a previously unknown Stone Age civilisation, say archeologists.

    The monument is 600ft wide and 90ft high and has been dated to at least 8000BC. The oldest pyramid in Egypt, the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, was constructed more than 5,000 years later.

    The structure off Yonaguni, a small island southwest of Okinawa, was first discovered 75ft underwater by scuba divers 10 years ago and locals believed it was a natural phenomenon.

    Professor Masaki Kimura, a geologist at Ryukyu University in Okinawa, was the first scientist to investigate the site and has concluded that the mysterious five-layer structure was man-made.

    "The object has not been manufactured by nature. If that had been the case, one would expect debris from erosion to have collected around the site, but there are no rock fragments there," he said.
    The discovery of what appears to be a road surrounding the building was further evidence that the structure was made by humans, he added.

    Robert Schoch, professor of geology at Boston University, dived at the site last month. "It basically looks like a series of huge steps, each about a metre high. Essentially, it's a cliff face like the side of a stepped pyramid. It's a very interesting structure," he said. "It's possible that natural water erosion combined with the process of cracked rocks splitting created such a structure, but I haven't come across such processes creating a structure as sharp as this."

    Further evidence that the structure is the work of humans came with the discovery of smaller underwater stone mounds nearby. Like the main building, these mini-ziggurats are made of stepped slabs and are about 10m wide and 2m high.

    Kimura said it was too early to know who built the monument or its purpose. "The structure could be an ancient religious shrine, possibly celebrating an ancient deity resembling the god Nirai-Kanai, whom locals say gave happiness to the people of Okinawa from beyond the sea. This could be evidence of a new culture as there are no records of a people intelligent enough to have built such a monument 10,000 years ago," he said.

    "This could only have been done by a people with a high degree of technology, probably coming from the Asian continent, where the oldest civilisations originate. There would have to have been some sort of machinery involved to have created such a huge structure."

    Teruaki Ishii, professor of geology at Tokyo University, said the structure dated back to at least 8000BC when the land on which it was constructed was submerged at the end of the last ice age. "I hope this site is artificial as it would be very exciting. But at this time I feel it is too early to say. I think the structure could be natural, but part of it may have been made," he said.

    The first signs of civilisation in Japan are traced to the Neolithic period around 9000BC. The people at this time lived as hunters and food- gatherers. There is nothing in the archeological record to suggest the presence of a culture advanced enough to have built a structure like the ziggurat.

    British archeologists are, however, cautiously enthusiastic about the discovery which will be featured this summer in a Channel 4 documentary.

    Jim Mower, an archeologist at University College London, said: "If it is confirmed that the site is as old as 10,000 years and is man-made, then this is going to change an awful lot of the previous thinking on southeast Asian history. It would put the people who made the monument on a par with the ancient civilisation of Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley."

    When I was about to take a break on this whole thing - you show me this. Deep.

    Do you know about Ba'albek Aqueous?

    The only structure that withstood the Deluge.

    3 stones on it were quarried 2 miles away from the structure and moved there.

    They weigh 1100 tons. In contrast - the biggest blocks on the Giza pyramid weigh in at 25 tons. The other smaller blocks at the temple in Baalbek weigh in at 60 tons.

    Nothing we built today can move that kind of weight. What did back then?

    No doubt, it was some supreme intelligence at work. I didn't know about Ba'albek. Thanks for adding on...word.

    Peace

    One of the blocks that never made it to the structure.

    That's what I'm saying tho. Peeps tend to think that there must be something or someone else greater than themselves because they don't know themselves. Some people say that Aliens came and constructed the pyramids in Egypt. Why?

    Somebody is benefiting from making us think that we don't have the ability to do such things.
