A.R.E. Search for Atlantis Findings: Update August, 2011
Pre-Ice Age Complex Found Off Bahamas Coast
Carbon-dating results for a recently discovered underwater site match Edgar Cayce's dates and location for Atlantis and the sunken Hall of Records!
Researchers for the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) have investigated an underwater site with what appears to be the remains of a collapsed multi-room building. Locals first found the structure and notified A.R.E. team members who made several expeditions to the location. On August 17, 2011, a spokesman for the organization announced the discovery and carbon dating results.
The building foundation has manmade mitered limestone corners and other debris inside the outer walls. A sample of beach rock from a long, straight foundation wall was carbon dated to between 21,520 BCE and 20,610 BCE. These dates are astonishing, because prior to this discovery most researchers considered the oldest dates for humans in this area to be 1000 BCE.
The A.R.E. has been searching this region since the late 1960s and has found many unusual underwater formations that appear to be manmade, but this is the first site to actually be carbon dated to a time long before the last Ice Age ended, which fits with Edgar Cayce's information that a highly developed culture once lived off the coast of the Bahamas and operated throughout the region.
It is also in the area where Cayce said a temple housing the Hall of Records with its Atlantean stone tablets sank. The dates also fit with those Cayce gave for the declining years of the Atlantean era. Visit the Search for Atlantis page for details about the unusual underwater formations. A.R.E.
