The fabled Atlantis found? A Big Possibility! Two scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zelitzsky (husband and wife team), working off the coast of Cuba have confirmed that a gigantic city exists at the bottom of the ocean. Not only have they found an ancient city but also four giant pyramids, sphinxes and strange symbols on them.
Many have prophesies that when the mountains topple at the end of days, an island will rise within the Bermuda Triangle, and I think they may be onto something!
It began with an expedition to locate the remains of the Maine which sunk in 1898, whose sinking sparked the Spanish-American War. The ship was located about five kilometers from the coast of Havana and nearly a thousand feet deep. During this time the research reported the discovery of a huge land plateau with clear traces of what appeared to be man-made architectural structures partly covered by sand. From above, the shapes resembled pyramids, roads, and buildings. On these structures are strange symbols and drawings, similar to the Egyptian hieroglyphics.
All of Spain echoed the sensational news, the discovery was made in July of 2000, and now a team of scientists from different countries plan to investigate the seabed with underwater robotics.
Most of the large blocks of granite and perpendicular, circular formations have been between two and five meters long, were exposed and could be seen on blocks, markings and drawings.
Luis Fernandez reveals some very interesting information about this matter on his website. Seems, that Paulina Zelitsky, President, Advanced Digital Communications (ADC), Victoria B.C. Canada and Havana, Cuba, the discoverer of this area, was a guest at the Hotel Congress of Geology. During her stay Luis interviewed the researcher with shocking revelations.
At the end of the interview, Luis was given images recorded by an underwater camera of this ‘city’ submerged. These images are being studied by the Center for Marine Archaeology and Anthropology of the Cuban Academy of Sciences. The work of these scientists is focusing on symbols and inscriptions on the stone monoliths.
More in the interview…(TRANSLATED from Spanish)
Luis: Paulina, you have been the discoverer of this “city” submerged. How did it happen?
Paulina: We researched the channel between Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula and it is a very interesting area for different purposes. Doing a side scan sonar, we realized that there were thousands and thousands of feet of a flat area with a very fine line sand like white silica. We spent three or four days sweeping, nothing but desert like white sand. When we suddenly saw on our maps very symmetrical structures, as of they were drawn my man. Within this area we were very frightened because we thought it might be U.S. submarine installations, and other great powers that are able to build blocks of structures and leave it totally deserted. We were the first to investigate the merits of this part of the sea because it was so very deep. The depth changes from 500 to 3000 meters and up to this day very few researchers had instruments that could accomplish this task.
LMF: What exactly is in that seabed?
PZ: There are huge structures built of large stone in perfect shapes, as if they were cut, and installed one above the other, with a perfection that I believe to this day, we cannot do.
LMF: So what is artificial?
PZ: Geological it is not. I can not tell where they came from naturally.
LMF: Paulina, maybe the remains of an ancient civilization? Some researchers associate these structures with the former Atlantis…
PZ: When we first published the news of this finding, the University of Veracruz, was interested in our work and we had recorded images of these structures on the seabed. Specifically, the Institute of Anthropology of the University excavations invited me, they were doing on parts and ruins of the Olmec civilization. When they saw these images, their submarine found similarities and parallels with the ruins found in these excavations. His interest also happened because the Olmec and other native peoples all have primary morphology marking the arrival of this continent. This means coming from the direction of Cuba, had to occur, very large earthquakes where the land sunk. Morphologies indicate that they belong to three families who were saved. One of these families came to the coast of Veracruz, which are supposedly the Olmec. Others came to Central America and traveled the Pacific coast, and these families created the civilization of the Americas as we know it today, because they distributed all their knowledge. When these anthropologists saw underwater images of this “city” and saw some stone monoliths, symbols, and inscriptions, they identified with the Olmec motifs. They were very surprised.
LMF: Is it true that there are pyramidal structures down there?
PZ: Yeah right, and I’m going to teach. But, there are many types and kinds of structures, not just pyramidal. There is even a huge pedestal with what could very well be a large sundial.
LMF: What is your theory?
PZ: Nobody knows where the Olmec arrived. However, they have a ancient art, perhaps more than 3,500 years. Unknown origin and age. But, everyone agrees that they came from the East. It is likely that some islands which sank with these civilizations of Olmec were established. Some speak of Atlantis and Mexico. I think maybe these structures belong to the Olmec civilization. We believe, and many scientists agree that perhaps the Yucatan Peninsula was united by a great mountain range in Cuba and probably there, lived and built a native city. A natural element, such as an earthquake could have caused the disaster and the collapse of this city.
LMF: What is the immediate future of this fascinating project and research?
PZ: We leave the summer expedition to investigate in depth the range, “map”, catalog and identify each of these structures. Plans are to work together with the University of Veracruz and continue the process of identifying this area. Yes, we’ve had some contact with the National Geographic and Discovery Channel to finance part of this project.
This is the same kind of stone used on the Easter Island and Stonehenge! Very large, smooth and light colored that bear no relationship to the surrounding ecology. Also there is evidence of smooth cut and fit, that is one on top of another.
Another thing we found, the anthropologist found, was an American cross shape. It’s a Central American cross. It is not two lines perpendicular to each other but they are two oval shapes crossing one another. Two long ovals, like a flattened circle. Found in Cuba in a variety of caves, and on the island. They are very ancient, pre-Columbian, possibly even thousands of years before Columbus.
In addition, many of the inscriptions may very well be Greek-like. Some of the symbols are like those described but others are cosmic type depictions.

She wrote of crossed oval symbols above and below spirals: “The image is from the Cuban Isle of Youth and restored by archeologists. But there are a number of similar (Cuban) caves: one in Matanzas and one in Quanacabibe which are not restored. The age of these nobody knows. But the scientific community believed they belong to the “SEA PEOPLE”.
In the September/October issue of Ancient American magazine, there is a brief article entitled ‘U. S. Navy Atlantis Cover-up?’ It says that on September 7, 2001, a team from Spain and the U. S. looking for oil have been “250 miles southwest of the Azores equipped with bathescape and two submersibles researching a 90-kilometer ledge with a central temple supported by three stands of nine pillars about 3 feet in diameter supporting a flat stone roof about 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. There are the remains of five circular canals and bridges, plus four rings of structures like the temple in between. It is roughly 2,800 feet deep in the Mid-Atlantic Trench and stable at this time.” According to the researchers, when they tried to send photographic images from the site, their signals were jammed by a U. S. Naval exercise nearby, perhaps inadvertently.
Frank Joseph, Editor-In-Chief, Ancient American, Archaeology of the Americas before Columbus, Colfax, Wisconsin: “The Luwians were a peoples who lived about the same time as the Trojans that lived in what is now Turkey. They were either an ally of the Trojans, a close ally during the Trojan War and before. Or else in fact, they were Trojans. Some Luwian script has supposedly been found in Italy and they think that is an important link between the Etruscans and Asia Minor, or what is now Turkey. And the Luwians were maritime people, very proficient at sea.
Apparently, these crossed oval symbols related to ‘LU’, is also parallel to what other culture languages describe as ‘star’!
A star, yeah. But maybe. That “lu” that is repeated is like they are identifying themselves, the Luwians. They might have called themselves the “lu.” It is very interesting. That whole cultural context is Atlantean because the Atlanteans were plugged into the Trojans. The Trojans themselves had a story of Atlantis. Their founder was Dardanus who came from Atlantis. Elektra, when she was sinking into the sea.
The Trojans were a people who built their city around 3,000 B. C. And they chose that spot at the Dardanelles because it was a very valuable place for trade between the East and the West. You had access then to the Black Sea. Whoever controlled the Dardanelles controlled trade. So Troy over time became a very wealthy city.
And the myth of Dardanos is that he was born on an island far away to the West. And his mother was Elektra. Her father was Atlas, the name of the island that Atlantis was on. She was the daughter of Atlas and her mother was Clione.
And Clione was the sea goddess who produced what is known as the Pleiades. And Pleiades means daughter of Atlas which is Atlantis. That’s what Atlantis means, daughter of Atlas.
PLEIADES MEANS DAUGHTER OF ATLAS?
Pleiades means daughter of Atlas. It is a poetic way of saying this is on Atlantis.
WELL, THE FACT THAT THERE COULD HAVE BEEN AN ATLANTIS THAT HAD BASES THAT SPREAD ALL THE WAY FROM WEST OF THE STRAITS OF GIBRALTAR THAT MIGHT HAVE INCLUDED THE AZORES, THE CANARY ISLANDS AND DOWN ACROSS THE ATLANTIC IS WHAT BEGINS TO EMERGE AS A GREATER TRUTH.
Now, the relationship between Atlantis and Troy is not the same as the relationship between say Atlantis and the Yucatan, for example, where they had an allied kingdom. They really owned the Yucatan. Or they would own parts of Ireland and Spain. That was really plugged in tight to the Atlantean Empire.
HOW FAR BACK WOULD YOU PUT THIS SINCE PLATO SAYS GOING THROUGH SOLON AND IN THE CRITEAS ’9000 YEARS’ AND THAT WOULD PLACE IT AT ABOUT 11,500 YEARS AGO?
No, that’s another story altogether. My colleagues and I have worked very hard since the 1980s on these dates. And those dates are a mistake, that was a mistake in translation. The Greeks used a calendar that was very similar to ours. They used a solar calendar of about 365 days. A standard solar calendar. The Egyptians used a minimum of five different calendars and their, including a solar calendar. Their priests and holy places where they had the story of Atlantis which was at the holy place called the Temple of Knife in Egypt. They used a lunar calendar.
We concluded that the Egyptian priest, when he said 9,000 years, is talking about lunar years and not solar years. There is abundant evidence to show that is exactly what he was saying. And the Greeks, when they heard this, they thought solar years. So when Plato all of the numerical values in the Criteas and the Timaeus are totally inflated beyond reality. They do not work with the description that Plato gives. Plato describes a late bronze age citadel or city.
There was a huge gap in knowledge between Plato’s and Solon’s time and what happened in Atlantis. Because we now know that when the Bronze Age stopped suddenly around 1200 B. C., that for the next 400 years at least there was a period of profound Dark Age. There was no more writing. There was no more building of cities. The population of the world had decreased phenomenally. There was widespread burning. The entire Black Forest of Germany was incinerated. Every, not virtually, but every known archaeological site in the Near East and Asia Minor were burned. It is now understood that there was a major catastrophe of which Atlantis was only a small part that whipped around the world in a band literally from about Iceland to oh, say, the middle of North Africa. It affected North America, went right through the Pacific.
There was a symposium of archaeo-astronomers back in 1997, not New Age people at all, in England, in which they found that probably the greatest natural catastrophe human beings ever witnessed was around 1200 B. C. And that was when two or more comets, including Haley’s Comet, converged in the skies over earth and showered the world with a barrage of asteroids and meteors that pushed human beings to the brink of extinction.
And Atlantis was especially hard hit because there are two Swedish physicists, Thomas Larsson and Lars Franzen, who established in 1997 that several asteroids – I’m not talking about meteorites – several asteroids! collided in the eastern Atlantic precisely in the location of Atlantis and that is why we can explain why an island the size of Atlantis which was 6,000 square miles – it was not a continent, it was a big island. And it was destroyed. If you have an island out in the middle of the water and it’s hit by several nuclear blasts at once, the chances of that thing being around are slim.
AND WHAT YOU MEAN IS THAT THE IMPACT OF THESE BREAKING OR COLLIDING ASTEROIDS WOULD HAVE BEEN EQUIVALENT TO ATOMIC BOMB FORCES HITTING ON THE ISLAND?
Probably H-Bomb forces. And they didn’t even have to hit the island itself. The island was part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge which is a very unstable part of the planet geologically. You could have an asteroid collision hundreds of miles away, but if it hit the Mid-Atlantic Ridge – that’s the end of that island.
SO, THE BRIEF ARTICLE YOU HAVE IN THE SEPTEMBER TO OCTOBER ISSUE OF ANCIENT AMERICAN ABOUT A SPANISH OIL RESEARCH GROUP BEING IN THE AZORES AND FINDING DOWN 2800 FEET NINE COLUMNS SUPPORTING SOME KIND OF STONE SLAB ROOF….
THAT IT MIGHT LITERALLY CONNECT TO THERE HAVING BEEN SOME KIND OF STRUCTURE THERE IN THIS 1200 B. C. TIME FRAME?
Yeah, I think so. It works out real well. Unfortunately, I have not been able to verify that report anymore than you have seen. But I would bet that it was part of the 1200 B. C. destruction because it was so massive at that time. We know for example that many parts of the world like Britain and Germany lost 9/10th of their population all at once. So, we’re dealing with a massive, almost an extinction, human extinction, in various parts of the world all at the same time. And I think that’s entirely possible.
That would explain also perhaps how this structure now found off Cuba is where it is. We understand that possibly that it was part of a much larger complex. I’m beginning to think that what they are finding there was much larger originally, and what they are finding now is only a small part, a remnant, that was perhaps on a kind of shelf which sank vertically. That is not impossible. Things like that have been known to happen before in the Atlantic and that this part remained upright and that’s what they are finding.”
One of the most mysterious cultures on earth are known as the Etruscans. Twenty-five hundred years ago they lived in a region of Italy known as Tuscany. No one knew who they were or where they came from. The Etruscans were skilled sailors and craftsmen and they left behind carved in stone blocks, columns and other artifacts a language that no one has ever been able to translate. It resembles Greek, but is not Greek.

Frank Joseph: “I haven’t seen what they found down there. It sounds like if it looks Greek, but isn’t Greek, that might be that it’s Etruscan. I’m not saying the site underwater is an Etruscan site. That’s probably unlikely. The Etruscans did not build things that look like Teotihuacan, that’s for sure! But the Etruscans, where did they get their written language? It’s possible that what we’re looking at in Etruscan is a variation of the Atlantean language. We don’t know what the Atlantean written language looks like. But it appears to be the precursor, not just of Greek, but other written languages in other parts of the world. So, it’s possible that if they look to Etruscan, they might be able to see some similarities. That’s not much help though. Even if they identify it as Etruscan, they won’t be able to read it because the Etruscan written language as not yet been deciphered. They’ve gotten some names off it and little snatches of things, but the language itself is really bizarre because it is a Greek type written language, but the language itself is more like Turkish or something. It’s really very perplexing.
The Etruscans are far more directly connected to Atlantis because Plato in his discussion of Atlantis mentions the Etruscans specifically as being an outpost of Atlantis, that the Atlanteans came to western Italy and set up their estate there and sort of inter-married with the people and created what became known as the Etruscans.
NOW FROM THE WORK YOU HAVE DONE ON ATLANTIS RESEARCH – AND I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY YOU ARE CONVINCED THAT PLATO’S DESCRIPTION AND HERODITUS OF THIS ATLANTEAN CIVILIZATION THAT IT REALLY DID EXIST. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE ATLANTEAN CULTURE IN THAT PERIOD FROM 3,000 TO 1200 B. C. BASED ON WHAT YOU’VE STUDIED?
What I can tell you is that the Atlanteans who developed on an island outside the Straits of Gibralter developed an extremely powerful sea civilization. They were great seafarers. Plato described the Atlanteans as great seafarers and great miners. And that works out extremely well with the copper mining that took place in North America – I’m not going to get into that, but there was a major copper mining enterprise that involved a minimum of half a billion pounds of raw copper being removed and disappearing during that time period. And I believe the Atlanteans fit the bill for that.
AND THIS WAS THE 5,000 MINES OF THE NORTHERN PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN THAT ARE EACH ABOUT 60 FEET DEEP?
Well, the average depth is probably like 20 feet deep for the pit mines, but there were many pit mines that were excavated through solid rock 60 feet down. So, whoever did that obviously had a technology far beyond anything that was known to the native Americans at that time who were not interested in anything more than float copper, copper they picked up off the ground. But this is one of the great – I hate to use the word conspiracy, but it certainly is suppressed evidence that American scholars have known about for more than 100 years that there was a huge copper mining enterprise in upper Michigan that lasted from 3,000 B. C. to 1,200 B. C. – those magic dates again – in which a minimum of half a billion pounds of the world’s highest grade copper was excavated and disappeared.
Meanwhile on the opposite side of the world, the Bronze Age erupts and bronze is only made through high grade copper combined with zinc and tin. So, I think that what Plato was talking about are these ancient copper miners who were able to mine through their tremendous technological development and ship this huge prodigious amount of raw copper to Europe where it became the merchants, the copper barons, of the ancient world and that is what made them so phenomenally wealthy and powerful.
WELL, AN INTERESTING POSSIBLE DISCOVERY IN THIS UNDERWATER MEGALITHIC SITE THAT’S UNDER RESEARCH IS THAT IN SOME OF THE SONAR DATA, NOT THE VIDEOTAPE, BUT THE SONAR DATA, THERE ARE SOME RETURNS THAT SUGGEST THAT THERE MIGHT BE METAL, LIKE METAL ON THE TOPS ON SOME OF THE OBJECTS. WOULD THE USE OF METAL AS SHEETING ON STRUCTURES BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE RESEARCH ON ATLANTIS?
Well, now we are getting really close to the Atlantean realm. Plato tells us that at the height of their prosperity to show off their wealth, would actually sheet their outer walls of the city with great sheets of what he called ‘orichalcum.’ Orichalcum means nothing more than high grade copper which didn’t exist in Europe in large numbers like North America. So, here were people who used a design technique, an architectural technique of including sheets of precious metal in their walls and now we are finding this supposedly at a site underwater off of Cuba. I would say now we are beginning to narrow in on a cultural commonality.

WHO WERE THE SEA PEOPLE??
The tribe of Dan is spoken of in the Bible. In the division of Palestine among the twelve tribes of Israel, after the Exodus from Egypt, Dan received his portion in the very north. As Dan was unable to secure and conquer much of its inheritance, due to spiritual weaknesses, they felt hemmed in and constrained to migrate and conquer elsewhere, which is one reason they captured Laish and renamed it “Dan.” Their inheritance was near the cities of Tyre and Sidon, famous home ports of the Phoenicians. Dan, who “abode in ships,” made common concourse with the Phoenicians, intermarried with them, and established colonies throughout the Mediterranean region.
The tribal emblem of the Danites was a snake with a serpent in its claws.
In fact, because at one time Denmark ruled all the surrounding region, the whole region took its name from themthe ScanDINavian peninsula! Clearly, here are remnants of the people of DAN, who migrated westward overland from the Caucasus to their present location in northern Europe! However, other Danites, who dwelt or abode in ships, and who associated themselves with the sea peoples of Tyre and Sidon, fled westward through the Mediterranean when northern Israel fell.
As a matter of fact the British Royal Family also came from the lowest of the low class as did the Blue Bloods of Europe to rule Europe. These Blue Blood families are said to have stolen THE DIVINE RIGHT TO RULE the world from their Scandinavian predecessors before recorded history. The British Royals and Blue Bloods of Europe appear to be a bloodline of people with Scandinavian DNA and the DNA of a dark race who may have been the “Sea People.” The Royals and “Blue Bloods” can be tracked back to the Lost Tribe of Dan and Cain in the Old Testament who are described as having had red hair and green-eyes. They are also referred to as the “Serpent Bloodline” or “Reptilian Bloodline.” The Bloodline of Cain or Dan migrated into Europe from the Mediterranean Sea into Spain, France and the British Isles with the aid of the “Sea People.”
Tuatha de Danaan literally means ‘Tribe of Dan.
As time went on the dark haired races, such as the Sea People, bred into or with the Scandinavian races to form a variety of people groups such as the Basques, Anglo-Saxons, Scythians, and Aryans etc.
The winners, who constituted the Sea Peoples’ confederacy, were a) the tribes of people who came from Anatolia—and the lands to its north and west—who migrated into the Levant and onto islands across the Mediterranean, b) the Kaska who kept their original lands in the north of Anatolia on the Black Sea, and added the heart of the Hittite territories to their own, c) the West Anatolian people who remained in their own lands, but added some of the Hittite lands, and gained influence in the Aegean, and d) the Phoenicians who seem to have gained more than anyone else from the mass migration of the Land and Sea Peoples.
So, even if it wasn’t Phoenicians (which I tend to think it was), and some even still believe them to be of the Greeks. The Greek have many legends of the demi-gods which lend itself to Atlantis.
Kabbalah & Magick Occult Symbols
Its figures are supposedly derived form the constellations. Advanced students of occult philosophy use many of these documents. Under each letter is the equivalent in English. Above each letter of the other three is its Hebrew equivalent.
[EDITOR: I personally believe these deities which came from Atlantis originated from the stars. But not as aliens, per say. They are fallen angels. If you look into the Kabbalah, and the Freemason establishment, you will find these same symbols. Their cross is exactly as this 'cross' from this 'city'.
