A truly spectacular find. This will probably re-write history as we know it. See link for details.

Again? Pretty soon there will be as many Atlantises as there are Noah’s Arks.
Well, finally we have found a place where the property values have sunk lower then California.
Google Ocean: Atlantis ‘found off Africa’ turns out to be boat mapping lines
Article also at the Telegraph.
Look at the Google map, realize you are viewing an area as large as Connecticut, then let me know what you think!
What is a boat mapping line?
Yeah, the Telegraph publishes the truth behind the lines in a linked article. No Atlantis...this time.
But it is credibly speculated that the sailing ship Marie Celeste did ground off the coast of Africa on sand bars that rise and fall rapidly. Under sail, she would not be going rapidly before the grounding, and there is no reason to think her captain would let loose the anchor to hold a ship that is firmly aground.
Once grounded, her passengers immediately left their meal and their chores and joined part of the crew who had also left the ship to “walk on the newly-found land” ... while leaving maybe 1 or 2 on the ship as watchstanders.
When the sandbar washed back away and refloated the ship, the remaining one or two crew would certainly have tried to launch the ship’s heavy wooden boats to rescue the struggling “walkers” who were now in waist deep waves (or worse) in rapidly rising water. If the boat’s crew and whatever rescued members couldn’t get back onboard the Celeste, the ship would simply pass rapidly away under the already set sails as the boat tried vainly to row back ....
Notice there are “lines” (roads?) going between various islands.
This article is from February 2009.
You’re making me want to read Master and Commander again.
There is a problem here of sorts, if Google is trying to say it is some kind of artifact.
The problem is that I am now looking at a satellite image on Geology.com
And the lines ARE STILL THERE!
And the picture I am looking at is labeled Imagery @(copyright) 2011 NASA
Boat mapping line my aunt fanny. The lines interestingly enough stop at our go around the underwater mountains. Why would a boat need to sail around an underwater mountain?
What’s the link for the satellite image?
Hello, I’m 2009. Have we met?
Oh, I see at the bottom of the image.
I still don’t see why a boat needs to stop and go around anything that’s UNDER the water. The article says there is nothing between the lines but either I’m crazy or there is lots that I see between the lines. Sounds more like someone wants to keep it under wraps.
