Has Atlantis Been Discovered?

That's the age-old question being asked of this new photo taken from Google Earth.

It shows a perfect rectangle the size of Wales lying on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean nearly 3½ miles down.

A host of criss-crossing lines, looking like a map of a vast metropolis, are enclosed by the boundary.

They seem too vast and organised to be caused naturally.

Funny enough this is super old news Im surprised its coming around again, this thing was discovered a while ago and there is even a documentary on it.

There are several sites like this around the world, not to say THIS isn't Atlantis, civilization is actually hundreds of thousands of years old, so its no surprise we would find such things underwater.

Thanks a bunch!
