    An Ancient City Is Discovered Underwater. What They Found Will Change History Forever

    An Ancient City Is Discovered Underwater. What They Found Will Change History Forever

    The city of Heracleion was engulfed underwater 1500 years ago. This grand city had been mentioned by the Greek writer Herodotus, the 5th-century BC historian. He had told a wonderful tale of Helen of Troy, who traveled to Heracleion, then a port of 'great wealth', with her Trojan lover, Paris.

    When French marine archaeologist Franck Goddio stumbled upon some relics, it led them to one of the greatest finds of the 21st century; a city underwater. The discovery took place when Goddio had been in search of Napoleon?s warships from the 1798 Battle of the Nile, when he had been defeated by Nelson in these very waters, but to his surprise, he stumbled upon this magnificent discovery.

    More and more statues are brought to surface, still in excellent condition

    The discoveries include the colossal statues of the Egyptian goddess Isis, the god Hapi, and an unidentified Egyptian pharaoh, all preserved in excellent condition by their muddy burial shroud. Along with these 16ft statues there are hundreds of smaller statues of Egyptian gods, among them the figures that guarded the temple where Cleopatra who was inaugurated as Queen of the Nile. Dozens of sarcophagi have also been found, containing the bodies of mummified animals sacrificed to Amun-Gereb, the supreme god of the Egyptians. Many amulets, or religious charms, have been unearthed, too, showing gods such as Isis, Osiris and Horus.

    The god Hapi was the god of the flooding of the Nile, a symbol of abundance and fertility

    Evidence shows that Heracleion slipped into its watery grave sometime in the 6th or 7th century AD. The discovery of Heracleion will now add depth and detail to our knowledge of the ancient world, because among the discoveries, there are perfectly preserved inscribed pillars decorated with hieroglyphics.

    This is cool. I really have a feeling that the human story is actually much longer than most historians believe.

    The earth is approximately 300 million years old maybe a little older. Im sure humanity's history is far older then the 2500 years the Christians believe or the 4500 - 5000 plus years of the written history of the Chinese and Jewish people. I read some where its closer to 40,000 years but it's probably older than that.

    I love reading about archeology finds that turn history on its ear and causes things to be rewritten.
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    Actually Christians believe the earth and humans are only 5,000 years old, which I cannot understand in this day and age and the amount of technology we have why people continue to read and believe a story book written centuries ago by people that had a tiny fraction of the knowledge and science available today.

    Were talking billions of years. The Q is how long humans have been here. They want you to believe the 5000 yr theory, cause if you believe that, you'll believe anything!

    Some of those megaliths go back 10,000's of years.

    And what about the annunaki who supposedly created humans, if you subscribe to that theory. Me myself, I find that just as easy if not more so than that jesus bullshit.

    So, it was the Christians that caused the fall of the Roman Empire that led to the Dark Ages? The over extension of Roman military power, corrupt Roman government and the Visigoths had nothing to do with it. Just a small minority religion did it all? Who would have thunk it.

    The learned folks focus on the reasons listed last; as they are the real ones. Christianity was not much of a force to be reckoned with until the Crusades if my memory serves me right.

    Pretty much. The theory is that the ancients were utilizing zero point energy modules and mastered sacred geometry 10K+ years ago. Taught by whom is still a mystery...but the knowledge was kept within the priest class. Priest class always keeps mans true nature and abilities hidden, in order to control him. And that remains to this day.

    How in the hell does this always turn into a bashing Christians thing? The general population of Christianity does not believe the earth is 5K years old. The referenced article wouldn't prove, or disprove any of that anyways as it is about a city that disappeared into the sea 1500 years ago. This has nothing to do with Christianity yet, you retards and fuck ups continue to try and push this stupid science vs religion bull shit. The article is about how history has discovered something new, and our understanding has changed. Obviously our knowledge of science and history is incomplete. The fact we make new discoveries everyday that changes our fundamental understanding of the world around us shows that. To turn Science into your own religion makes you as bad as those you rail against you claim the world is 5k years old. How can you not figure that out?

    I am not bashing Christians, I am just saying they believe that the world is only 5,000 years old because a book written thousands of years ago said so is like believing the world is flat. And yes, that is what the majorities of Christians believe, the earth was created in 6 days , remember?

    Yet current science believes the world is about 4.5 billion years old, quite a discrepancy huh?

    What do you call it, the Brown Ages, when Arabs were making strides...???
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    1. No, Christians as a whole don't believe the earth is 5K years old. Only a small fraction of fundamentalists would you be able to find who would say they believe that. It's actually pretty funny that you, an individual who doesn't believe in Christianity would try and speak for those who do.

    2. Can you please explain the relevance of Christianity to a city that slipped into the sea 1500 years ago? It's quite comical when you post factually incorrect, and so astoundingly off topic information.

    The world would be a better place regardless of belief if more people followed that rule.

    It would be better as well if people weren't trying to use religion, or science to argue against each other.

    Let me address the next part.

    The Arabs haven't done jack since converting to Islam in the 7th and 8th centuries (some areas came later). They did far more under the old Egyptians gods. At best, they rode the coattails of the previous era, the Greeks, and the Romans. People like to talk about that era being the Golden Age of Arabs, but quiet often the so-called achievements aren't named, were minor by Western standards or simply not of Arab origin. Take catgut (using intestinal wall material for suturing wounds). It's claimed to be of Arab origin since it was created in the Arab world, Turkey to be precise. In fact, it was created by a Roman -- Galen -- living in Turkey. Hell, most of the Arab advancements in Medicine was mostly Galen's work. The Muslim-Arab discovery of breast cancer? Beaten by the Egyptian by almost 4000 years. The Muslim-Arab invention of using windmills to power irrigation? Greeks in the first century BC. At best, they codified trigonometry. The so-called Golden Age of the Arab world reads like African-American studies. Something that's supposed to make you feel good if you're in that group -- the facts be damned.

    Stuff that was discovered in the West in the Middle Ages? The heavy plow, eye glasses, hourglass, tidal mills, blast furnace, mechanical clock, and the printing press.

    Dark Ages, my ass.

Beaten by the Egyptian by almost 4000 years. The Muslim-Arab invention of using windmills to power irrigation? Greeks in the first century BC. At best, they codified trigonometry. The so-called Golden Age of the Arab world reads like African-American studies. Something that's supposed to make you feel good if you're in that group -- the facts be damned.

    Stuff that was discovered in the West in the Middle Ages? The heavy plow, eye glasses, hourglass, tidal mills, blast furnace, mechanical clock, and the printing press.

    Dark Ages, my ass.

    Always appreciate all of your post ...Thanks
