it is said that space is the final frontier except that's not really true consider over 70 of the earth's surface is covered by water nearly all of it ocean and yet only 5 of the world's oceans have been explored by human beings the remaining 95 still a dark and uncharted frontier what secrets might lie within this unexplored expanse what could be down

there just waiting to be found numerous ancient civilizations have provided us with at least one answer across eras and cultures separated by thousands of miles there are stories of once great cities suddenly sinking to the bottom of the ocean lost forever for many years these stories were regarded as little more than myth until in modern times archaeologists began to discover ancient ruins
01:01
submerged beneath the ocean all over the world and the question started to get asked could these ruins be evidence of the advanced prehistoric super cities spoken about by the ancients or maybe they are evidence of something more something out of this world we'd like to thank expressvpn for sponsoring this video expressvpn presents the fastest speeds compared to other vpn providers and it's really easy to use using the

02:35
they also said they saw numerous pyramids in it today i actually seem to have found part of it these were the words of popular author and youtuber scott c waring in mid-2020 he was claiming that by using google earth to scour the ocean floor for anomalies he had found multiple underwater pyramids off the coast of cuba in the caribbean sea he noted that while the anomalies appeared when examining the area
03:06
in the web browser version of google earth in the downloaded version the entire area was blacked out in his words that really makes me think google hid it on purpose so that the city will remain hidden if it was hidden on purpose what purpose if it was a cover-up then what was being covered up predictably waring was called a conspiracy theorist and his purported findings were largely
03:37
rejected in the mainstream except what he'd found had already been found before and in fact documented in 2001 the cuban government launched a project to search for sunken ships left over from the spanish colonial era in the waters off its shores it is estimated that billions of dollars of gold bullion carried by these ships are still sitting on the ocean floor part of what has been called the richest galleon cemetery in the
04:08
world the project was led by advanced digital communications a canadian company headed by marine biologist pauline zelitsky and her husband paul weinzweg using the most advanced sonar equipment available they scan the ocean floor for irregularities when suddenly their equipment picked up something that stunned them there an incredible 650 meters below the surface were what appeared to be a series of
04:39
symmetrical and geometric stone structures standing out against the barren terrain of the ocean floor in short order they set down a remotely operated vehicle equipped with a camera to explore further what they found could not be denied in the words of zelitsky it is stunning what we see in our high resolution sonar images are limitless rolling white sand planes and in the middle of this beautiful
05:10
white sand there are clear man-made large-sized architectural designs it looks like when you fly over an urban development in a plane and you see highways tunnels and buildings weinzwig added some structures within the complex may be as long as 400 meters wide and as high as 40 meters some are sitting on top of each other they show very distinct shapes and symmetrical designs of a non-natural kind
05:41
we've shown them to scientists in cuba the u.s and elsewhere and nobody has suggested they are natural but how could this be possible many pointed out that to sink to that depth the city would have to be over 50 000 years old long before humans had the architectural capacity to construct what had been found surely this is the type of mystery that requires further investigation except this is not
06:12
what happened shortly after the discovery the cuban government unexpectedly cut the exploration project short and stories of the find disappeared from mainstream media in fact the story had nearly faded from memory altogether until the proclamations of wearing in 2020 interestingly this is not the first time the story of an underwater city off the coast of cuba had appeared
06:42
then faded from memory back in 1954 lester hemingway was flying from the united states to cuba to visit his brother the famed american writer ernest hemingway when he noticed something peculiar out the plane window as media reports recorded submerged under the water below him was an expanse of stone ruins several acres in area and apparently white as if they were marble it is well known that ernest hemingway
07:13
spent a great deal of time not only in cuba but just over 100 miles away on the tiny island of bimini it was this setting from which hemingway concocted his seminal works the old man and the sea and islands in the stream in 1968 seven years after hemingway's death a team led by sub-sea archaeologists joseph mason valentine discovered a half-mile stretch of limestone blocks submerged in the ocean just off the
07:45
coast of bimini like a paved road too perfect to have been created naturally the discovery came to be known as the bimini road but a road to what curiously ernest hemingway was known to call bimini the end of the world was he just being grandiose euphemistic as writers sometimes are or did he and his brother know something the rest of us
08:15
didn't for decades questions about the bimini road remained unanswered until in 2009 a team led by archaeologist jez alexander mapped a grid of the ocean floor surrounding bimini using a combination of google earth satellite imagery and ocean floor maps as alexander amazingly described they discovered foundation ruins rubble sections of building walls and ruins of large public edifices some
08:47
of what remains standing clearly show evidence of intelligent structure post and lentil construction parallel wall sections and right angles things that could not be explained as having been natural in origin just like off the shores of cuba it appeared they discovered the submerged ruins of an ancient city could this really be true could deep below the ocean waves lie ancient cities from a prehistoric past
09:17
and if so what could these forgotten cities tell us about human history nearly 2500 years ago the legendary greek philosopher plato penned one of his most long-standing and most notorious works it told a story of the lost continent of atlantis according to plato atlantis was an advanced island civilization which had existed many centuries before the ancient greeks
09:47
its continent was an island larger than libya and asia minor put together located just beyond the pillars of hercules meaning beyond the strait of gibraltar somewhere in the atlantic ocean the fate of this mighty civilization is described by plato in his dramatic conclusion to the story there occurred violent earthquakes and floods and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth and the island of
10:19
atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea despite its eloquence the story may have been remembered as little more than another of plato's rhetorical tools rather than a historical possibility if not for the work of u.s congressman ignatius l donnelly in 1882 donnelly published the antediluvian world in which he hypothesized that atlantis was not only real but that it was a civilization that
10:49
populated much of the ancient world according to donnelly atlantis inspired greek african indian and scandinavian myths as well as those among the native tribes of the americas for his work donnelly is credited with starting the modern search for atlantis in the 1930s this search led american psychic edgar casey to claim he knew where atlantis was and when it would be discovered stunningly in hindsight
11:21
he declared that atlantis was near the small and then unknown island of bimini and that it would be discovered in 1968 or 1969 of course 1968 was the year the bimini road was found could it be that this road is in fact the road to atlantis and where the ancient ruins found around bimini in 2009 the borders of this ancient lost continent
11:51
was this what hemingway meant by the end of the world perhaps but perhaps not it seems that any time something unusual is found at the bottom of the ocean claims of atlantis appear and the more that humans explore earth's uncharted waters the more common these types of incredible discoveries become in 2013 an unassuming portuguese fisherman named diocletiano silva was searching for fish
12:22
between the islands of sao miguel and tercera some 900 miles west of the portuguese capital of lisbon in the middle of the atlantic ocean as his sonar system scanned the water it picked up something which shocked the humble fisherman there below his boat appeared to be a perfect pyramid some 60 meters tall sitting on the ocean floor as silva told portuguese news outlets it's amazing because it forms a perfect pyramid
12:52
and moreover orientation and deployment of the pyramid the vertices are oriented north and south just north and south such as the giza pyramids in egypt incredibly in the face of such a potentially significant discovery the portuguese navy rejected silva's claims and shut down all further investigation however they did not shut down the imagination of those who had heard the story particularly when the admiral in charge
13:23
of the area gave a rare interview in which he proclaimed that even the navy did not have enough information about the structure to stay definitively what it was certainly many headlines blared this must be part of the lost city of atlantis then in 2016 a new and even more bizarre underwater discovery captured attention some 45 miles off the coast of mexico
13:54
in the bay of california it seemed that google earth revealed a monumental expanse of linear lines and massive outlines reminiscent of the mysterious nazca lines in peru some asserted that the lines designated an enormous underwater pyramid many miles across one of those was scott c waring who ruminated an 8.5 mile pyramid biggest the world has ever known and it's right off mexico others
14:25
asserted that the structure cannot be a natural formation while waring himself proclaimed there was a 100 chance of it being an intelligently made structure again the headlines announced we must surely have found atlantis in late 2016 nasa's operation icebridge used remote sensing photography to create a three-dimensional view of what was under the mile thick
14:54
sheet of ice that covers the arctic and antarctic continents remarkably the 3d constructions of antarctica appeared to show the remains of settlement under the ice unknown land masses and mysterious structures some as big as the eiffel tower could this be the lost city of atlantis not sunk to the bottom of the ocean but encased in ice obviously mysterious ruins hidden in
15:26
the ice of antarctica or submerged in the water around cuba bimini mexico and portugal cannot all be atlantis but that's just the point if not atlantis then what are they well to start atlantis is not the only ancient tale of a submerged city lost to the dark depths of the ocean augustus le plangio had devoted his life to investigating the ancient mayan culture
15:57
in the yucatan peninsula of what is now mexico in the early 1880s the archaeologist reached the pinnacle of his work he had come across a series of ancient inscriptions which he purported to translate according to la plagio they described an ancient lost continent called mew which had existed somewhere in the pacific ocean in prehistoric times before being submerged in the ocean had he discovered the record of another atlantis
16:28
many questioned the translations of les plancheons and thus the veracity of his claims writing them off as the work of fiction and there the story might have died if not for a man named james churchward in the 1930s churchword came forward with a story from his time as a british soldier in india there he asserted he had befriended a high-ranking indian priest who introduced him to a set of ancient clay tablets
16:59
they were written in a lost language that only a few people in the world could understand consequently church word set about convincing the priest to teach him the language so that he might read the sacred tablets for himself after some time he was able to read them and to his amazement they told an astounding tale according to churchward they spoke of an ancient lost continent in the pacific ocean which had existed some fifty thousand years ago
17:30
it was named mew stretching some 3 000 miles from north to south and 5 000 miles from east to west the vast continent was purportedly home to 64 million people before suddenly sinking to the bottom of the ocean and disappearing like le plesion churchward's claims were met with skepticism surely there could not be some sort of lost civilization at the bottom of the pacific ocean or could there
18:02
one day 1986 a japanese diver named kihachiro arataki was enjoying his favorite pastime exploring the sea floor off the coast of japan on this particular day arataki was driving around yonaguni island some 60 miles east of taiwan when he came across something he couldn't believe there beneath him were what appeared to be the ruins of a sunken city there were castles roads monuments a pyramid
18:34
even a stadium immediately a group of scientists led by masaaki kimura rushed to the area to investigate in the years that followed kimura identified numerous structures at the unaguni site and amazingly additional structures some 300 miles further into the ocean around the island of okinawa at both sites he and his team noted walls constructed at right angles hexagonal columns even an
19:06
underwater road all displaying an unbelievable symmetry some expressed skepticism that perhaps what kimura was finding were not ruins but actually just natural formations until his team began to uncover carvings of animals and people even a face which seemed eerily similar to the moai heads of easter island i think it's very difficult to explain away their origin as being purely natural
19:37
because of the vast amount of evidence of man's influence on the structures kimura explained could this really be the outskirts of a lost continent called mew more importantly if ancient stories of mew and atlantis were true how would this change our understanding of human history in 1963 an investigation launched by the indian government's department of archaeology discovered what appeared to be the remnants of a sunken city
20:07
in the bay of kambe off india's sauerstraw coast exploration in the murky waters was difficult but by the late 1970s the marine archaeological unit of india had started underwater excavations bringing up bits and pieces of pottery jewelry and other artifacts dated at over 3 500 years old as time passed and technology advanced so too did the exploration become more robust
20:37
until in 2002 india's national institute of ocean technology discovered a series of structures further out into the bay some 40 meters below the surface archaeologists descended discovering sections of walls and buildings sculptures even human bones and teeth the ruins of a vast city many miles long most incredibly the artifacts were dated at nearly 10 000 years old predating the ancient
21:09
egyptians by thousands of years to many familiar with ancient indian tradition the meaning of this discovery was obvious it meant that the ancient stories of lord krishna were true according to the mahabharata a fundamental epic in indian tradition as well as many other ancient texts krishna fled the indian continent to escape a never-ending cycle of war between his people and their neighbors with the help of the god viswa karma krishna founded the island city of
21:40
dwarka there an advanced civilization lived amongst seven hundred thousand palaces made of gold silver and precious stones incredible structures which as written in the harivancha almost touched the sky and could be seen everywhere like clouds according to the ancient texts after krishna's death the city and its advanced civilization sank into the ocean there are many who believe that the modern discovery of an ancient
22:09
underwater city confirms the stories of krishna are not myth but historical records if this is true then what would it mean for our understanding of humanity's pasts as the bbc suggested the remains of what has been described as a huge lost city may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history but how it's not just that a 10 000 year old
22:40
indian civilization would throw our understanding of where civilization started in disarray it goes much deeper than that consider if the ancient texts are telling the truth about krsna's mystical city of dwarka what else might they be telling the truth about look back through the story of krishna to his time of conflict prior to founding dwarka there a battle against a leader named shalva is particularly notable
23:10
according to the texts shalva attacked krishna in some sort of flying machine unleashing what appears to be an energy weapon projectiles described as bolts of lightning in response krishna responds with a weapon bright as the sun in the sky killing shalva and wiping out his army in one fell swoop here the ancient indian texts read like the pages of science fiction shalva armed with a ufo that shoots
23:41
lasers and krishna with some sort of ancient nuclear weapon but if the story of dwarka is true could this be as well and if so how would the ancients have come to be in possession of this type of advanced technology and weaponry there are some who suggest the answer is contained within the records of ancient cultures all over the world consider from the sumerians and egyptians to the native tribes in the americas to
24:11
the ancient civilizations of india asia and beyond all told stories of gods coming from the sky and bringing humans advanced technology and knowledge many believe these beings were not gods at all but ancient aliens and that the ancient myths were actually a historical record of early extraterrestrial visitors to earth those who fundamentally shaped human evolution note that according to sumerian texts
24:43
these visitors called the anunnaki came to earth and interbred with primitive humans founding the modern human race it is interesting then that plato described the inhabitants of the lost continent of atlantis as half god and half human while james churchward asserted that sacred indian tablets named the continent of mew as the place where man first appeared is it possible that stories of atlantis
25:15
and mew and krishna are not myths but historical records and is it possible that these records tell of an ancient collaboration between human beings and alien visitors might this be why underwater discoveries are so often suppressed by official sources perhaps this is what awaits us at the bottom of the deep dark unexplored oceans not only the ruins of a lost human history
25:44
but an entirely different human history altogether thank you for watching if you enjoyed the video please hit the like button and if you're new hit subscribe and the bell next to it for future notifications
