Christopher Hall (17 дней назад)
everyone saying it's Atlantis, I've seen that video and it's wrong. He says the ground below the city rose around the time the younger dryas hit, causing sea levels to rise, so if the ground and the sea level rose at the same time, and every legend ever says Atlantis sunk into the ocean, why is the supposed site for Atlantis hundreds of miles away from the ocean?
Christopher Hall (17 дней назад)
1 final point, Hank says in this video that it took millions of years for this to form, so if you were a creationist then it would make sense to you because they all believe things that take millions of years actually happen in a few hundred
Christopher Hall (17 дней назад)
also the salt deposits on the south boundary are hardly compelling evidence for the city being on the ocean shore, the ENTIRE Sahara was once the bottom of the ocean, there's salt everywhere

It's the lost City of Atlantis. The same size, the same shape, the same description of the mountain in the north. The ancient map of Herodotus also confirms it.

The eye of the sahara is the ancient lost city of Atlantis. Look up Brightinsight. Open your mind you will know it to be true.

Yep" bright insight channel !!! This is the lost city of Atlantis . As Plato described exactly . That part of africa was a sea. Even down to the exact radius 23km apart i think. This most definitely was Atlantis

See I find it amazing a study say of a human lifespan of 70 to 100 years can tell us of something that took thousands of years to happen and form. Wouldn't you think we will have to study rocks and land for that long in order to actually know what the Eye of Sahara really is or why it happened? I mean we can not even verify how ancient Egypt built the pyramids with precise calculations but we somehow know about the Eye .

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...

Just where this ancient scar is situated nestled in between the mountain ridges with the ancient river beds feeding into it ...to me, it looks like the ancient weathered and eroded remains of a giant Back-Eddy....

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 (3 месяца 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 (3 месяца 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

+Ghost of Bill Cooper This is a primarily science focused show so historical conjecture is less relevant than geological interpretations in this case. Not every failure to mention some aspect of something is necessarily a dismissal.
Ashwin Mouton (24 дня назад)
What about the fact that Plato said Atlantis was located just outside the Straight of Gibraltar and was an Island the size of North Africa and Asia combined? The exact same size?
Natalia Stolarz (27 дней назад)
+Ghost of Bill Cooper talking to locals who have not seen Atlantis, because they couldn't have is not an equivalent of research. Anecdotes =/= facts. And for the record I don't dismiss the possibility of the location being Atlantis, but I will also NOT sell it as truth, even though nothing has been confirmed and no study was done to see if it's the truth. As for the "they are hiding this from us" I see in every video that has anything todo with "not mainstream science" I only have one question: why? to which I will probably get an answer along the lines of: because they want to control us. But well, yet again.. why? What is the purpose of the mysterious them controlling us? I'm sorry but I just don't see how knowledge about things long past can make me harder to control. Another thing I hate about this kind of videos is the instant demand for answers - they found something new literally a week prior to the video being published and the author of the video is already screaming "they are hiding things from us. Why don't they teach us about that in school!". (example, the tomb recently found flooded with water). a) they didn't teach us that in school, because they didn't know about it back then, b) they are not hiding anything. They just made the discovery, it's gonna take time before we have ACTUAL FACTS about the thing and not speculations or what-could-have-beens. And yet again, all the speculation is sold like it's fact.

+greg happening Well I have read both of the texts. And it's common sense to have a basic understanding of anything before rejecting it.
greg happening (2 дня назад)
+For Fun Oh the BI vids are just for people new to the subject yet in your last comment you refer to them as something we need to see before even having an opinion. Do your own research and reading of Plato's translated text, accounts and Solon's journey and you'll see many things don't line up.
For Fun (2 дня назад)
+greg happening The BI videos are for people new to the subject, as it's simply a report. Second, there's few if any contradictions. If anything it's not enough evidence for absolute proof. There's also not enough proof against it either. In fact, there's few if any evidence against the hypothesis.

+For Fun The BI videos have plenty of contradictions mentioned above, why don't you look into yourself instead of just believing youtube videos that have very few references

@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!
