    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.

    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.
