Coordinates – 31 20 N , 24 20 W – ancient under water city or geologic feature?
‘Dutchsinse’ who posted the video clip on YouTube: “I suppose this means that I, “dutchsinse”, am the official discoverer of Atlantis to bring it public?!”
Unfortunately we must disappoint “Dutchsinse” as early as 2009 this place was discovered by an aeronautical engineer, Bernie Bamford, of Chester who spotted the “city” and “it must be man made,” he said.
The network of criss-cross lines is 620 miles off the coast of north west Africa near the Canary Islands on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. A perfect rectangle – which is around the size of Wales.
Atlantis experts said that the unexplained grid is located at one of the possible sites of the legendary island, which was described by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato. “The site is one of the most prominent places for the proposed location of Atlantis. According to his account, the city sank beneath the ocean after its residents made a failed effort to conquer Athens around 9000 BC. Full article: Google Ocean: Has Atlantis been found off Africa
Google claims that these lines are due to some sort of sonar mapping grid when mapping the ocean floor. But one has to wonder if the “official” explanation holds any truth.

It definitely deserves a closer look.
