YONAGUNI ANALYSIS

The author came to know about the Yonaguni monument at about 1995 by a remark in some publication about “a rectangular steps-like structure that was reported by Japanese divers, which was possibly of artificial nature". At the moment the artificiality is still under discussion , especially among archaeologists (though most of them ignore the existence of the finds). What is remarkable are the arguments used by the 'natural origin' proponents, e.g. that only part of the structure is of natural origin, or that the tools associated with its construction have not been found. The first argument is ridiculous: even it were 99% natural, the only thing that matters is the 1% of artificial origin (sceptics are invited to look at the pictures here, and/or the movies here) . The second argument applies equally well to the pyramids of Gizeh. What the natural origin proponents need to do is to make rules in order to distinguish natural from artificial, apply these rules to (archaeological) constructions they consider artificial and see if they comply, and then apply the rules to Yonaguni. The author has formulated a simple set of rules here, that works well on constructions the archaeologists admit to being artificial, like the pyramids of Gizeh. According to these rules, Yonaguni is artificial to the same degree of certainty as the pyramids of Gizeh. So here is taken, on the basis of the rules of good science, that the Yonaguni monument and its surrounding structures are artificial.
