Deeply eroded geologic dome? ... is there another one anyware on the planet?

You morons won't say a word about how this natural formation was used by the earliest egyptian ancestors. They later(much later) referred to it as Atlantis but hey stuff like that is so boring.

Atlantis! Always nice to see it. Formed by an intense electrical plasma discharge, during the time of actual celestial events.

So have we confirmed this theory or is this just a theory? Is it possible that it could be a very large and very ancient structure? If not why and what proof do we have of either? It’s nice that you state these things as fact without explaining how these ideas came to be the accepted reality.

It is an electrical arc discharge, to the left is a smaller version which didn't get completed. The raw power of nature at work. Wouldn't have wanted to be there when it touched.

Yeah... Turns out that's where they built Atlantis the entire time... Whoop-de-fuckin-do we were trying _way_ too hard with the "Sea" aspect that we didn't see the neon arrows on dry land...

You are a clown..first find out what was there before you do a video..its an exact place of lost Atlantis and makes perfect sense to what Plato describes. The rocks are there as left overs from this amazing man made structure before huge catastrophic event happened in the area around 11600 years ago..

chuck norris (1 месяц назад)
Odd that it matches every one of Plato's descriptions of Atlantis, which he received from his ancestor from 6 generations ago Solon, who in turn received them from his travels to egypt. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwii3ZvijqvdAhULJ8AKHd0vDZYQwqsBMAB6BAgKEAU&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov
trebelclef (1 месяц назад)
no educated person would leave out the uncanny resemblance to Atlantis particularly since its measurements are almost identical to Plato's description including freshwater in the center (a well was dug to check and there was fresh water), mountains to the north, rivers in the mountains, etc
Blinkey (23 дня назад)
I looked at their website and skimmed through their documentary, they are a VERY, VERY questionable source to say the least. I am willing to consider the possibility and there definitely are some things which makes this seem plausible. But most of them presented in bright side's video are just conjured up out of nowhere and fall under basic scrutiny. This kind of pseudo science hurts more serious unorthodox theories like Randall Carlssons theory about Egypt and the Sphinx if you are familiar with them.

Ghost of Bill Cooper (1 месяц назад)
Blinkey: Brightside got most of his info from a documentary called Visiting Atlantis. The people who made that video did their research by actually going to the site and talking with the local inhabitants. I agree the Wikipedia stuff doesn't add anything but to dismiss the hypothesis like you have, shows an unwillingness to even consider the idea. That's a damn shame.
Curse of Yig (1 месяц назад)
Sahara was green 5000 plus years ago, there were three mega lakes in the Sahara. The Eye is a great contender for Atlantis. Untold tons of sand get blown into the ocean west of the eye every year. I bet that extended the land further and further away from the eye in the last 12000 years.

Adrian Högström (1 месяц назад)
@SciShow due to recent discoveries you can clearly see that the surroundings looks exactly like a tsunami of water washed over there, and this "Eye of the Sahara" could possibly be the lost city of Atlantis! What do you think? Search for Bright Insight an look at his comparison. You're welcome!

The details of this structure fit Plato's description of Atlantis very very well. I'm not saying it is, but there are quite a few similarities if one looks into into it.
Alan Parris (1 месяц назад)
Looks like what Plato described as Atlantis. Size checks out. Mountains to the north checks out. Spring in the center ...also checks out.

It looks like it has had some sort of electric type of impact. You can clearly see it at the outskirts of the rings "canyons".
Crispy2012A (8 месяцев назад)
That has to be the most ridiculous explanation I have heard so far...if any of that were factual, there would be more than one around the globe...seriously, some times I think Geologists just spew whatever comes out of their mouth's because they feel pressured into doing so. The eye contains Lichtenburgh Dendritic Figures exterior to the circumference, this is a cathodic plasma discharge scar, probably caused by the sun, or some other celestial body that came too close to earth in the past. From the center core outwards, radially, the plasma arc column has a gradient temperature, hottest at the center and cools in bands radially to the outermost column, leaving the circular band imprints, which you can also see the electrical dendritic scars exterior to the outermost circumference of the column leaving secondary streamer scars. This also resolves the so called age erosion rates by material type, as each material reacts differently under high temperature...this video is pure nonsense.
Crow Bear (5 месяцев назад)
Crispy2012A Of course they do. Their entire field is built on a rock bed of lies.
Sahelian Nomad (8 месяцев назад)
So called scientists are liars. This is the Atlantis Plato described and those rings were made of metal. Furthermore they knew the world was flat and as shown in this stretch of 31 miles, no curvature!
