A fisherman near the Azores (off the coast of Portugal) found a huge pyramid with its top about 40 feet under the sea. Soon two more pyramids were discovered, with the three forming a perfect triangle. Some consider these to be part of the lost city of Atlantis that is mentioned by Plato (360 B.C.) in his book, Timaeus. The city was said to have been destroyed in a single day by some disaster about 9,000 years earlier.
This discovery suggests that there was a civilization long before Adam and that it may have been destroyed by some disaster long prior to Noah’s flood. Men have long suggested that Genesis 1:1, 2 sets forth an original creation that was then destroyed, saying (according to Dr. Bullinger), “and the earth became formless and void.” In other words, the history of creation in Genesis 1:3-31 appears to be the history of a second creation, though no details are given about how the first came to be void and empty.
Of course, I myself avoid trying to teach on Creationism, because that is a study that should be left to the experts. I see various possibilities and viewpoints but have no fixed view for myself.
After the discovery, the Portuguese Hydrographic Institute of the Navy tried to determine if the pyramid was man-made, or it occurred as a result of natural phenomenon, and what they found next surprised even the most skeptic of researchers.
Other signals coming from massive underwater structures were picked up by researchers in the nearby area, and after they’ve sent divers in for a closer look, two other pyramids were discovered, bigger than the one found in 2013.
The underwater formations have about 120 meters in height and a 20,000 square meters base and they appear to be indeed artificial structures.
Since the beginning of our written history, legends of an advanced prehistoric civilization known as Atlantis have existed, and while countless people went searching for the mysterious city, they couldn’t agree on where to start looking first….
Records depicting the mythical Atlantis were first mentioned by the Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues of Timaeus and Critias, written in 360 C, and according to Plato, Atlantis was a naval force “lying across the Pillars of Hercules”.
It succeeded in conquering a substantial part of Western Europe and Africa, 9,000 years before the renowned Athenian lawgiver Solomon. After an unsuccessful attempt to conquer Athens, the entire Atlantis was swollen by the ocean “in a single day and night of misfortune.”
