Sixty Meter Tall Pyramid Found Off Coast of Azores Island

Legends of an advanced prehistoric civilization know as Atlantis have been around since the beginning of history, but previously those who searched for it were divided whether or not it was located near the Azores, South America or elsewhere. From as far back as Plato it was suggested the original builders of the pyramids lived west of Gibraltar, but findings of Machu Picchu, and other curiosities in the Mediterranean, led people to believe it was on the other side of the Atlantic.

According to Diocleciano Silva, the newly discovered Pyramid is sixty meters tall with a base of approximately 8,000 square meters. It is around forty meters below water and aligned with the four cardinal compass directions, similar to the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The Azores are a chain of nine volcanic islands in three main groups that are 930 miles west of Lisbon. They are above what is known as a geological triple junction where the North American, Eurasian, and African tectonic plates meet. They were recolonized in 1941, but artifacts have been found suggesting they had been previously inhabited. Those artifacts are thought to have predated Christ by a few thousand years, but the location of the pyramid has been below water for 20,000 years since the last ice age.

  • The pyramid here is nothing more than a naturally formed basalt outcrop on the ocean floor. Atlantis was entirely made up by Plato as a fable for one of his philosophical works. He never intended for anybody to take him seriously about a lost civilization. There are, however, real chunks of large real estate in the Mediterranian basin that did sink sometime in the last ten thousand years due to earthquake activity. A major quake struck Crete and brought Mycenaean civilization to an end. It may h More..

    • @gdaymate Just because the bible blokes shoved a story into their book it doesn't mean it didn't happen..  When the glacial ice melted a natural dam was breached and the black sea was formed where dry land had been  (there is survey evidencce of river channels) Just because  the creator  made up  some real weird critters with lots of left over bits and shoved all in Oz  there is no need to get all  anti christian.

      You're not whinging are yer mate?

      That's a bizarre response to a theory of how the story of Noah is nothing more than mythology used to explain a localized natural disaster. My guess is that you went rabid at seeing the words "Noah" and "Ark". You should think more and not imitate the people you hate.

  • So let me get this straight - a pyramid is claimed to have been found with the tip being only 120 feet or so below the surface, this guy claims to have found it with sonar, but not even the most simple video from an underwater video camera that I can go buy at Harbor Freight Tools for $100?  I call Legendary Bullshit!

      Sorry, working on other projects. Ask me what you want. We were there for a bit. Interesting place.

      We found another island north of Graclosa. It turned out to be a mustard stain on the map. Our Navigation system turned out to not be particularly accurate. When we turned it on, it was close to about 10 meters.

      The only time one had to turn on the depth meter was when one was rocking up in a harbor. I saw lots of ancient pyramids and barely missed them. In modern terminology, More..

  • Once you clear the shelf around either of those islands (well, all of them which are very well mapped), it drops off to 1000-3000+ meters between those two islands. I'm not sure what he thinks he's seeing on his fish finder but it isn't a pyramid.

    Heading north west from Sao Miguel is a fairly heavy seismic region so he probably saw a bump on the ocean floor before the depth drops off. The same is true if you look south east of the island. It's called a fault-line. Where the hell with you thi More..

As for all the other phony shit, can suck my balls. I also do not think we're alone. We can not be the only spoof of life in the whole god damn universe.

  • fake - a simple dive to take real pictures its only 40 meters.

    That "scan" of the bottom is drawn. Peak public interest, get investors, take the money and run. Or dive and record nothing.. Happens all the time.

  • If the top is only 40 metres down then a submersible vehicle like an ROV can be used to get pics EASILY.

  • My theory is that Earth was once inhabited by a race of highly evolved human-like creatures who created a very advanced civilization here many thousands of years ago. Then when the great Ice Age hit they all fled the Earth to live on another planet in outer space. The UFO's we see every now and then in the sky are tourist ships and scientific research ships piloted by the descendants of the former Earth inhabitants coming back to study us. The mysterious pyramid structures scattered across the E More..

And it is fantacy in the extreme to say that the really Old Stonemasonary was fashioned with copper tools. In Bolivia you can see your face in the reflection on this highly polished surface.

      There's a lot of nice boats out there, particularly around the island of Sao Miguel. I'm not sure how many actually sail there vs. fly to Ponta Delgada and rent as I could tell that a pile of the big boats had never left the marina. 

      To each his own. You'll find the die hard sailors at Flores and Corvo which is wayyyy West. I think the next island west from there is Newfoundland.
