Riddles Bimini road
In 1940, prominent American clairvoyant Edgar Cayce said one of the strangest of their prophecies. He predicted that Atlantis would rise from the ocean floor, and it will happen between 1966 and 1970...
This prediction made Casey shortly before his death, it seemed so unbelievable that he almost nobody believed. However, another clairvoyant - master of the Rosicrucian Raymond Bernard in his book "Invisible Empire", published in 1961, confirmed this prophecy.
And in 1968 was an amazing event. French diver Dmitry Rebikoff noticed under water near the island of North Bimini, belonging to the group of the Bahamas in the Atlantic ocean, stone geometrically correct plate!
The news is rapidly spread around the world and caused a sensation. It seemed that finally found the real traces of Atlantis, the legendary country plunged into the ocean, according to Plato, 12 thousand years ago.
Right after Rebikoff the bottom at the North Bimini examined Dr. J.. Vallentayn, honorary curator of Natural-science Museum in Miami. He described the facility as "the broad pavement of rectangular flat stones of different size, the edges of which are curved long years of water erosion" and expressed confidence in its artificial origin.
In the same year Rebikoff together with a group of experts from the University of Massachusetts has made aerial ocean waters near North Bimini and made a rough diagram of the location of the mysterious object. Everyone said that found the remains of some ancient roads or building foundations and walls, and possibly tops of buildings, speaking of the age-old sediment.
The expedition failed
Over the next 40 years at the North Bimini visited dozens of expeditions. Thousands of divers, fascinated by the dream to find the legendary Atlantis, dived seven meter deep to the strange stone roads".
Overgrown basins and underwater vegetation, they are about 20 centimeters above the surface of the oceanic and soil stretch, turning in some places at an obtuse angle. The length of the "roads" is 100-150 meters. Such objects are detected also in the vicinity of other Islands of the group are the Bahamas - Andros.
Most expeditions engaged in the study of "Bimini road", turned out to be really successful. Underwater archaeologists tried to dig, to determine at what depth lie blocks, but nobody managed to get to their base. It is hampered by strong underwater currents and whirlpools. Besides local water full white sharks are the most dangerous to human health and the bottom is full of eels.
No wonder the Bahamas is among athletes podvodnikov of ill fame. By the way, the Bahamas are the area of the Bermuda triangle. Therefore, you should not be surprised that two expeditions to the North Bimini went missing, and the remaining members were faced with a very unusual phenomena.
The glow of the seabed
24 March 1979 Americans Jim Ventana and Harold X. Wilson during the dive at the North Bimini in the sixth hour of the afternoon saw in the water glowing triangular object "wingspan" about twelve meters.
Triangle, moving swiftly above the bottom, has made several sharp turns, and then emerged from the water, into the sky and disappeared. This object also saw people on the boat that was waiting for divers.
In June 1998, the French expedition under the guidance of D. Vallo late evening watched bluish glow of the ocean floor at the North Bimini. A luminous area was a straight broad band with distinct edges, where the band has moved on, and moved. The source of the strange glow discovered. Continued phenomenon of about forty minutes.
As it turned out, a luminous stripe noticed with the fishing boats, located nearby; spotted her and American space satellite.
The three-meter stranger
The incredible story told diver John March, diravshi to the "Bimini road" in 2000. In clear weather at sunset with good visibility, he noticed a dark human figure, which was walking along the ancient plates (Chagall, and not have sailed). The March particularly impressed that man was without a suit. Very high, about three feet tall, the stranger moved in the direction of the diver.
March thought it was fitting jumpsuit. However, no clothes, no person to see in bluish fog was impossible; the approaching figure seemed solid dark silhouette. March then said that at that moment I had in mind was to swim to a strange figure, on the contrary, his whole being yearned to escape as soon as possible.
Suddenly developed a severe headache. Not waiting until the stranger will draw near, March surfaced to the waiting boat. It felt so overwhelmed that he barely managed to get into hanging on Board the ladder.
The pain was released after ten minutes. And then it turned out that the head is sore from all of the crew of the yacht, and the pain began all at the same time, coinciding in time with the appearance of her in March.
Metal colonnade preserved?
Immediately after the opening of the "Bimini road" there were skeptics who tried to prove their natural origin. Geologist Eugene Sinn suggested that "the road" could be formed under the action of the tides.
Later version was proposed that "the road" is a sea shells and sand, hundreds of years pressed in a rectangular formation. Dr. Greg little from Georgia state University, the professional diver and archaeologist, wrote the following about this: "Such delusional theory invented by those who have never dived to the "roads", not seen with their own eyes, not touched by the hands of their amazing stones".
By the way, the expedition doctor little to the North Bimini in 2003 and 2004 Dali, probably, more information about these objects, than all the previous ones combined. Little and his team discovered under a layer of stone blocks of the same, and even lower - third. To get to the base of ancient construction Little failed, in connection with which he has concluded that it is not expensive, and, most likely, the tops of the walls, buried under the sea-floor sediments.
When viewed very small part of the second layer of plates, which managed to reveal, it was discovered that it is less affected by water erosion, plates carefully polished and fitted to each other tightly. The devices showed the presence of a bottom in the area of the "roads" voids, and metal.
It is unusual for the whole region, since neither for themselves, the Bahamas or at a location nearby Atlantic deposits of metals no. Underground metal objects, recorded by the instrument, are mostly to the North and North-West of the "roads", and they are like a point, splashes, and form a wide semicircle.
Little believes that this may ancient metal colonnade, which once supported (and maybe still maintains) codes of some buildings.
In 2004, one of the participants of the expedition were killed by a shark, and work had to fold early. But the little doctor intends in the future to come back here.
Traces of the legendary country
The researchers tried three times to determine the age of the "roads". In 1968, studied the bottom topography and geological layers, scientists have suggested that they are 2 - 2.5 thousand years. However, in the 80 years, new research has postponed the time of their creation until the X-IX centuries BC.
Investigations of the 2000-ies "aged" underwater object for another thousand years. Now it is expected that "road" appeared in the XI-X Millennium BC. Analysis of stones showed that originally they were on land.
The most striking thing is that if you look at the above dates, the age "Bimini road" in General corresponds to the age of Atlantis provided by Plato in his famous dialogues "of Crete" and "timey".
According to the testimony of Plato, which refers, in turn, on the Egyptian sources, Atlantis was destroyed in X Millennium BC But, in addition, there is also the prophecy Casey, who directly said that from the ocean floor must rise Atlantis.
Now almost no one doubts that the clairvoyant had in mind "Bimini road". Is Casey and this time was right, and we received tangible traces of the existence of the legendary country?
Whatever it was, in connection with the opening of underwater ruins in North Bimini top on the agenda of historical science there was a question about the time and place of occurrence of the first ancient civilizations.
Now it is obvious that already in the end of the fourth ice age, the human race was not only primitive hunters with stone axes in their hands.
