Cynthia McKanzie - AncientPages.com - Most people associate the Bermuda Triangle with mysterious disappearances of aircraft and ships.
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. The Bermuda Triangle is not a place you will find on any official map, but according to some people who have been there, you will feel it when you have crossed the line.
Ever since a magazine coined the phrase "Bermuda Triangle" in 1964, this mysterious place has continued to attract attention.
What secrets are hidden underwater in the Bermuda Triangle? We have seen that our oceans are greatly unexplored and full of secrets. Deep beneath the waters, there are marvelous ruins of lost ancient civilizations.
These ancient underwater remains serve as a reminder of how vulnerable we are and how fast Mother Nature can end our existence.
This brings us to the intriguing exploration of the Bermuda Triangle. Could Atlantis be located beneath the North Atlantic Ocean?
A while back two scientists Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki discovered pyramids under the waters of Cuba.
In addition, they also found the ruins of ancient buildings for about a mile below the sea and considered them to be Atlantis.
When examining the structures the two scientists used submarines and concluded that several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids plus other structures are located within the boundaries of the legendary Bermuda Triangle.
They found sphinxes, stones that arranged like Stonehenge, and a written language engraved on the stones.
Some of the underwater stones were arranged like Stonehenge. Weinzweig and Zalitzki also discovered stone engravings written in an unknown language.
The evidence discovered at the underwater pyramid complex 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. Coastlines changed; land was lost; islands (even island continents) disappeared.
At the end of the last Ice Age, sea levels were nearly 400 feet lower than present-day levels. Once the waters began to rise, they rose swiftly. Conceivably, no technology then, or now, could have saved Atlantis from its watery grave. The evidence that land in what's now the Caribbean also sank into the sea concurrently seems pretty certain.
At the time uplifted portions of the Mid Atlantic Ridge subsided also including Lyonese and the home islands and land mass around the Azores. Even if that had not happened, this subsidence was amply large enough.
The story of the lost continent of Atlantis starts in 355 B.C. with the Greek philosopher Plato. In Plato's book, Timaeus, a character named Kritias tells an account of Atlantis that has been in his family for generations. According to the character, the story was originally told to his ancestor, Solon, by a priest during Solon's visit to Egypt.
There had been a powerful empire located to the west of the "Pillars of Hercules" (what we now call the Straight of Gibraltar) on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. The nation there had been established by Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Poseidon fathered five sets of twins on the island. The firstborn, Atlas, had the continent and the surrounding ocean named for him. Poseidon divided the land into ten sections, each to be ruled by a son, or his heirs.
The capital city of Atlantis was a marvel of architecture and engineering. The city was composed of a series of concentric walls and canals. At the very center was a hill, and on top of the hill a temple to Poseidon. Inside was a gold statue of the God of the Sea showing him driving six winged horses.
About 9000 years before the time of Plato, after the people of Atlantis became corrupt and greedy, the gods decided to destroy them. A violent earthquake shook the land, giant waves rolled over the shores, and the island sank into the sea, never to be seen again.
But it is possible that we have encountered the underwater ruins of Atlantis? Is it possible that the underwater ruins of the coast of Cuba were actually discovered long before Weinzweig and Zalitzki encountered them?
Terrence Aym researcher and author of the book Mysteries of the Multiverse reveal that "according to journalist Luis Mariano Fernandez the city was first discovered decades ago, but all access to it was stopped during and after the Cuban Missile Crisis in the sixties, Nuclear submarines cruising in the Gulf (in deep sea) met pyramid structures.
They immediately shut down the site and took control of him and the objects, in order that it will not come to Russians hands."
The science team of deep ocean experts, archaeologists and oceanographers found ruins of ancient buildings 600 feet below the ocean. They say the city is Atlantis. Using exploration submersibles, they discovered amazingly huge pyramid structures similar to (but larger than) the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. They estimate the Atlantis pyramids are constructed with stones weighing many hundreds of tons."
"It has confirmed that the stones were cut, carved and polished to make them fit together and thus form larger structures.

On the strange inscriptions, some of them similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics, very little is known, except that they are very abundant and found in almost all parts of the field. They have also appeared symbols and drawings whose meaning is unknown," Luis Mariano Fernandez said.
During an interview about the exploration of the mega-city, Fernandez asked lead scientist Pauline Zalitzki about the civilization that built it.
"When we published the first news of this finding," she said, "the University of Veracruz was interested in our work and we had recorded images of these structures on the seabed. Specifically, the Institute of Anthropology of the University excavations invited me. They were doing [studies] on parts and ruins of the Olmec civilization.
The Olmecs and other native peoples all have primary morphology marking the arrival of this continent.
Morphologies indicate that they belong to three families who were saved. One of these families came to the coast of Veracruz, which is supposedly the Olmec.
Others came to Central America and traveled to the Pacific coast, and these families created the civilization of the Americas as we know it today, because they distributed all their knowledge.
When these anthropologists saw underwater images of this city and saw some stone monoliths, some symbols, and inscriptions, they identified with Olmec motifs. They were very surprised."
Something is hidden beneath the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. There are ancient structures that could be several thousand years old. This ancient underwater city was built by an ancient unknown civilization that perished in a series of cataclysmic earth changes.
The only way to gain more knowledge about the mysterious underwater structures in the Bermuda Triangle is to launch an archaeological mission. Only then will we be able to unravel the secrets of the pyramid, sphinx and puzzling ancient engravings found on stones buries beneath the waters.
