Thus began a relationship between Atlantis and the Bahamas which has continued
now for nearly 35 years, with as many as 60 sites of possible archaeological interest
being noted in its shallow waters. By far the greatest concentration are found on
the south-western corner of the horseshoe-shaped Great Bahama bank which, al-
though almost entirely submerged today, was still being swallowed up by the ocean
as late as 3000-2000 BC.

Described by J. Manson Valentine, the great underwater explorer as the 'mother lode'
of the Bahamas, they face out across the extremely deep Old Bahama Channel to-
wards Cuba, and their presence seems to hint at a connection in prehistory between
these two enormous landmasses.

As early as the 1950s light aircraft pilots flying in and out of Cuba from Miami reported
seeing what appeared to be walls and buildings in the waters north of the Cuban mainland.

There is no question that, if the Bahaman landmass did once support a prehistoric cul-
ture, then it was also present on Cuba as well. Carved petroglyphs, with skylights in
their ceilings to let in sunlight, stone cairns and age-old human bones have been found
in submerged caves not only on the Great Bahama Bank, but also on its more northerly
neighbour, the Little Bahama Bank.

They bear striking similarities to the decorated caves of Cuba which are at least several
thousand years old, and plausibly much older still. Whoever inhabited these sites were
the descendants of those who survived the cataclysm, and those who went on to be-
come the ruling class of the Mesoamerican peoples such as the Olmec, Maya, Quiche,
Toltecs and Aztecs.

Here, somewhere, is the origins of the Atlantis myth, and Cuba holds the key to its re-
discovery, and one day we will have all the answers. Whether the stone structures dis-
covered by ADC in the Yucatan Channel do turn out to be remnants of lost Atlantis
remains to be seen.

All we can hope is that the full extent of the finds is researched and documented, allow-
ing people to make up their own minds on whether the greatest enigma of the ancient
world has finally been solved.

                                        P U N T A   D E L   E S T E   C A V E S 







Punta del Este Caves are located 20 km from Cayo Piedra. Through Lanier Swamp there are an
eastern way giving access into the place.

The first data obtained about Punta del Este, located at south-eastern of Isla de la Juventud
were taken in 1903 by Charles Berchona French geographer, but until 1922 first real archaeo-
logical information aren’t obtained with Fernando Ortiz’s visit to the cave, confirming it was
the rests of a pre-Columbian temple
.
Unfortunately it wasn’t until 1967 when started a successful ransom and conservation work
of these caves, but by that time those caves had been hardly mutilated by previous popula-
tors who made from the caves their home. The populators plundered the pre-Columbian ob-
jects these people damaged the original paintings with the soot of their cookers.

These painting are the main attractive of those caves.

More than 230 cave paintings are drown in the 5 caves in Punta del Este, in a cavernous
space more than 20 mts wide and 20 mts depth. The size of these imposing cave paintings
made on these caves walls and ceilings give the name of Cuba’s Sistine Chapel.

The drawings in Punta del Este are lineal, abstract ad geometric remaining curvilinear lines.

Its position is completely symbolic and chosen colours are red and black
.
According to carbon 14 test the ancient of the drawings is 850 years AC although it is
thought they could be even older.

In the symbolic allusions of these cave paintings is represented the succession of days
by nights in the worship calendar, 28 concentric circles, in which are detached a red
arrow represent the lunar month.

Every day sunbeams enters through the porch of the main cave (No.1) following this astral
route and lightning different sections of the mural. On march 21, date corresponding to the
spring equinox a sunbeam enters through a hole in the ceiling and reaches the centre of a
rounded stone located in the cave centre.

                        Has the Location of the Center City of Atlantis Been Identified?





By Dr. Greg Little

In his now-classic 2000 book, Gateway to Atlantis, British author Andrew Collins makes a compelling case that the main island of the island empire of Atlantis was Cuba. Collins believes that the center
city of Atlantis was somewhere around the Isle of Youth, located to the south of the main island of Cuba.

In his book, Collins related that a clue was left by the famous treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, before Fisher's death in 1998. Fisher spoke to Collins and told him that he had initially identified the center
city of Atlantis using satellite images. He then secretly went to the site and reportedly confirmed
that it was the actual city.

The center city of Atlantis was, according to Plato's account, a circular city about 2.5 miles in dia-
meter ringed by a much larger body of water making the land immediately around the city about 7
miles in diameter. The center city was ringed by three circular canals and had a long canal leading south to the sea. To the north, a complex of smaller canals led to the city and a mountain range blocked the cold winds. There were springs in the center of the city, on top of a small hill, which housed Poseidon's massive temple.

During his discussion with Fisher, Collins relates that Fisher refused to divulge the location of the
city, until a "certain country" had a change in political leaders. Fisher let it slip that Cuba was the location he had investigated, but not much else was discussed.

1st shot is satellite view of Andros and Cuba.







During our 2002-2003 investigations at Bimini and Andros, one of the other things we did
was obtain satelite images of Cuba which were available to Fisher back in 1998.

In August 2002 we carefully studied these images and found a location in Cuba which clo-
sely matched many of the descriptions given by Plato.

We posted some of the information on the Edgar Cayce organization's website

 (www.edgarcayce.org/am)

in September 2002 and dubbed the location the "Z" site. We planned to visit the Cuban
site in 2003 during our Andros expeditions, but because the political situation took a se-
rious turn for the worse, the plans were shelved. In our just-released book (The A.R.E.'s
Search for Atlantis) and video documentary (The A.R.E.'s 2003 Search for Atlantis) we
have revealed the location and other significant information.

 2nd satellite image focuses
on Zapata (right hand side),
the underwater island at Za-
pata, and the Isle of Youth
(left hand side).







The site is an underwater island at Zapata, located on the southern side of Cuba, north
of the Isle of Youth and just to the west of the Bay of Pigs.

The island is surrounded by a small ring of water and is about 7 miles in diameter, consi-
stent with Plato's description of the outer ring of Atlantis. We obtained old depth and
bottom contour charts of the site and found that the island has a series of rings comprising it.

3rd satellite shot shows the
underwater island enlarged
and the Bay of Pigs.







To the north of the underwater island is a massive swamp, which is criss-crossed with
manmade canals. The canals were enlarged during the 1930s and 40s for logging, but
were present before that time.

They have been attributed to the Taino Culture, a mound builder culture present in
Cuba about 3,000-years ago. However, no one knows when they were actually made.

Further to the north, a mountain range encloses the area and a wide river runs at
the base of the mountain—again, consistent with Plato. In addition, we found that
the center of the underwater island is not only the tallest portion, but also has several
springs on it.



Dr. Greg Little is a frequent guest on radio shows: Greg Little's Upcoming Radio Shows

We have posted a few satellite images with this article as well as a few Quicktime clips
of the video.

                                        Cayce on Atlantis: Bimini & Cuba?





About 700 of Cayce’s readings mentioned Atlantis. He stated the size of Atlantis (prior to
disturbances in 50,000 B.C.) was similar to Europe combined with the portion of Asia con-
sidered to be part of Europe (Eurasia). Its position “was between the Gulf of Mexico on
the one hand - and the Mediterranean upon the other.” Some islands were mentioned by
Cayce as once being mountaintops or “protrusions” of Atlantis: The British West Indies or
the Bahamas and Bimini.

In March 1927, a Cayce reading (996-12) referred to “adjacent lands to the west and south
of the isles” (Bimini) as a portion of Atlantis that “will be uncovered.” Cuba lies to the west
and south of Bimini and is between the Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean.

According to Cayce, the first two destructions of Atlantis resulted in it becoming islands.
The final catastrophe caused the major civilization centers of Atlantis to submerge as well
as be subject to destructive forces. It isn’t suggested that Cuba was Atlantis. It is logical
to assume that those fleeing prior to the final destruction would seek the highest ground
and Cuba may well have been a place where some survivors went.

Map of Bimini
showing the area of the road







Overview of the Bimini Search


The Bimini Road consists of rows of stone blocks about a half-mile from Paradise Point in
North Bimini. The longest row is about 1600 feet long. It has a J-shaped turn on one end.
The blocks vary considerably in size and shape.

“And Poseidia will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again. Expect it in sixty-
eight or sixty-nine [1968 or 1969].” (1940 Reading 958-3)

* In 1957 Joe Gouveia (an A.R.E. member and pilot) searched around Bimini and reported
finding columns and blocks.

. * A team member of the 1957 expedition (Dr. William Bell) found a vertical column rising
from the seafloor. He also found several stone slabs and a gear-like structure. David Zink’s
book, The Stones of Atlantis, published some of these pictures.

. * In 1968 pilots Trigg Adams and Robert Brush spotted what appeared to be a building
structure near Andros Island.

* Later in 1968, biologist J. Manson Valentine and Dimitri Rebikoff, discovered the “Bimini
Road.” Valentine also reported that he found over 30 other sites with structures that
appeared to be manmade.

* Valentine, Rebikoff. Adams, and Brush formed the Marine Archaeology Research Society
(MARS) and tried to obtain permission to excavate the road.

* The owners of the shore at the “road site” were given control of the “road” and excluded
the MARS team from having access to it.

* Numerous other amateurs visited and made wild claims.

* In 1971, an article in Nature by the Virginia Beach-based Geologist Wyman Harrison
reported that the “road” was natural beach rock.

* In the early 1970s, a team (SEAS ­ Scientific Exploration and Archaeology Society) led
by geologist John Gifford discovered another site called “Proctor’s Road” consisting of
clumps of stone at intervals running in a straight line for a mile.

* In 1974, Dr. David Zink (an English professor at Lamar University) met J. Manson Valen-
tine at Bimini and performed the first full survey at the Bimini Road.

* In Zink’s “Poseidia ‘75” expedition he assembled a dozen divers, archaeologists, and geo-
logists to study the road. Zink concluded that, rather than a road, the site was a mega-
lithic site. A 300-pound marble “head” sculpture was found along with a grooved building
block.

* In 1976, Zink’s “Poseidia ‘76” expedition included zoologist Dr. Doug Richards. The Bimini
Road was more accurately surveyed and mapped and magnetic anomalies were found.

* In 1977, the marble “head” was raised and a coring of the rocks was made. The results
of the coring were inconclusive. The head may—or may not—have been a carving.

* In 1980, geologist Eugene Shinn and archaeologist Marshall McKusick published a report
in Nature that the road was beach rock.

* In 1984, armed with satellite photos from Landsat 4, an A.R.E. team including Doug
Richards, Marty Obando, and others were able to view possible sites from a plane. Sub-
sequent on-site investigations from a boat were disappointing. A land excursion was also
made with nothing of relative importance found.

* In 1989 an A.R.E. group led by Joan Hanley discovered a sand-formed “shark mound” in
the middle of mangrove swamps on Bimini. The 500-foot long mound has yet to be exca-
vated or professionally examined. Raymond Leigh had an infrared photo of the mound taken.

* In 1996 Doug Richards and Joan Hanley led an A.R.E. expedition to Bimini funded by Don
Dickinson and the Law of One Foundation. Side sonar scanning was done in several areas
around Bimini. A host of rectangular and anomalous features were found in deeper water.
Dive time to inspect the anomalies was limited because of the depths. However, several
members believed the features to be manmade.

* In 2002 the A.R.E. completed a 630 sq. km IKONOS satellite imaging project of the
Bimini area.

* In March 2003, Greg and Lora Little flew over the largest circle found in the Bimini
satellite project and obtained high resolution digital video the circle. Computer analysis
revealed that the circle showed unusual characteristics.

* In April 2003 Greg and Lora Little visited several of the Bimini circles discovering that
the smaller ones appeared to have been made by a "cookie cutter." These smaller circles
had well-defined walls and a bottom with inner walls two to three-feet deep. The large
circle was actually raised off the sea bottom about three feet with a well-defined outer
wall.

From Wikipedia

 
Zapata Peninsula (Spanish: Península de Zapata)

is a large peninsula in Matanzas Province, southern Cuba,
at 22.3044444° N 81.3777778° W.

 
Ciénaga de Zapata National Park is located on the peninsula.

It is located south of Ensenada de la Broa,
east of the gulf of Batabano and
north of the Gulf of Cazones.

The Bay of Pigs defines its eastern limit.

To the north, it is lined by the
Carretera Central highway.
