Re: Any verification on Azores pyramid?

It is just a matter of money. Exactly, it would be a waste of money to investigate the site before a preliminary dive. And an ROV could provide video. But someone has to pay the bill of getting an equipped ship out there for at least a week. No need for a ship since the depth is 40 meters. Scuba di...

Re: Any verification on Azores pyramid?

Hi It seems that the sonar has very low resolution so it shows a pyramid where there's no pyramid at all. One easy way to get more information could be to scan the area traveling in several other directions, in this way you would get a more detailed scan of the area. Anyway, it's probably another su...

Re: Atlantis?

Well, Plato talks about a submerged continent bigger than Ancient Lybia and Asia Minor combined, and that does not exist in South Spain. Eratosthenes of Cyrene estimated the circumference of the earth with a remarkable precision. Althought plato story was stated earlier, It is certain that Greeks kn...

Hi all

As a consequence of turistic pressure, several terrain owners have been hiding and destroying Roman remains in order to build luxury resorts for turists. The most serious case is happ...

On the related article is said that: "Continuing population growth put stress on local food supplies, which, in turn, led to farming as a way of artificially boosting food production." I don't agree with this statement. For sure to colect food is always easier than produce it but population will gro...
