A City 6,000 Feet Under The Sea

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This may be about the most astonishing thing you ever heard, A City 6,000 Feet Under The Sea,  reports Jonathan Gray in his newsletter -




The Swedish research ship “Albatross” had just returned from a peaceful reconnaissance in the South Atlantic.




Had you peeped through a lattice window in a little house outside Stockholm, you might have seen two men, one of them bearded, huddled across a table, engaged in lively talk.


One of them, in fact, looked almost wild-eyed. But, knowing him as a well-balanced, sober man, you would have to admit that whatever it was that now had him so excited must be something extraordinary.



“I swear to you, it’s incredible! Do you know, we were sounding the seabed 700 miles east of Brazil. And we brought up core samples of fresh-water plants! Can you believe that! And do you know how deep they were? Three thousand metres!”


The speaker was Professor Hans Pettersson, who had led the expedition.


And he added: “These samples actually contained micro-organisms, twigs, plants and even tree bark.”




Within a similar time frame, discussion was hot in London. Coral had been recovered from depths of over 3,000 feet (1,000 metres) in mid-Atlantic Ocean sites. Now we all know that coral grows only close to sea level.


So in London, England, someone else was making a chilling diagnosis: “Either the seabed dropped thousands of feet or the sea rose mightily.”




Meanwhile, at Columbia University in the U.S.A., Professor Maurice Ewing, a prominent marine geologist, was reporting on an expedition that had descended to submerged plateaus at a depth of 5,000 feet.


“It’s quite amazing,” he said. “At 5,000 feet down, they discovered prehistoric beach sand. It was brought up in one case from a depth of nearly three and one half miles, far from any place where beaches exist today.


“One deposit was 1,200 miles from the nearest land.”


As we all know, sandy beaches form from waves breaking on the edge of the coastal rim of the seas. Beach sand does not form deep down on the ocean bottom.


Then Ewing dropped his bombshell: “Either the land must have sunk 2 or 3 miles or the sea must have been 2 or 3 miles lower than now. Either conclusion is startling.”




These facts mean one of two things: either there was a mighty ocean bed subsidence (unexplainable by orthodox science), or a huge (likewise unexplained) addition of water to the ocean.


Let’s briefly consider these.


1. Sudden subsidence


Much of the landscape that is now drowned by the ocean still has sharp, fine profiles. But these sharp, fine profiles would have been eroded, and the lava covering the ocean floor would have decayed if all this rocky terrain had been

immersed in sea water for more than 15,000 years.


You see, chemical and mechanical forces are very destructive. Sharp edges and points can be ground down and blunted by abrasion, erosion, and the action of waves.


But the entire seabed below the present surf zone has retained its sharpness of profile. Had the subsidence taken place gradually, chemical and other forces would have ground down this sharp profile within a few hundred years.


If the land had sunk slowly, even the surf would have worn away these profiles. No, it was a rapid subsidence, if a subsidence it was.


This sudden collapse of an area covering many millions of square miles does not support a gradual sinking, but rather a cataclysmic event.


Such subsidence is perfectly in keeping with the centuries-long adjustments that occurred after the Great Flood trauma.


2. Pre-Flood sea level lower


However, some of the data strongly suggest that the sea level actually was several thousand feet lower than at present – that there was LESS WATER in the ocean at one time. These discoveries suggest that we are uncovering evidence of a former sea level!


But this would call for a relatively sudden increase of 30 percent in the volume of the ocean. The compelling question is, WHERE DID THIS WATER COME FROM? Few geologists can bring themselves to answer this.


Obviously, melting ice sheets could never have contained enough water to raise the ocean level thousands of feet. So we can forget melting ice sheets being the cause.




Now for another surprise. This time the excitement was in the Pacific. The year was 1965. A research vessel named “Anton Brunn” was investigating the Nazca Trench, off Peru.


The sonar operator called for the captain.


“I don’t know what to make of this,” he murmured. “Around here, the ocean floor is all mud bottom. But just take in these sonar recordings… unusual shapes on the ocean floor! I’m puzzled.”


“Better lower a camera,” came the order.


At a depth of 6,000 feet a photograph revealed huge upright pillars and walls, some of which seemed to have writing on them. In other nearby locations, apparently artificially shaped stones lay on their sides, as though they had toppled over.


The crew rubbed their eyes and kept staring. Could this really be? …the remains of a city under a mass of water more than a mile deep!


Was it overwhelmed suddenly by some gigantic disaster? And now it was buried under 6,000 feet of ocean?

That lost world was like a paradise, in many ways. It was different beyond our wildest dreams. Yet it was a REAL WORLD. As real as ours.

      lots of truths mix in with the lies. thank u for the all-some story

    • MissingRonnieR

      My hypothesis as a young student was that prior to the last Ice Age man may have existed in complex societies that are now buried under thousands of feet of ocean. I was laughed at. I am smiling.

    • JohnnyB

      Yes, Noah’s flood was the sudden event.

      • sten

        Except “Noahs Flood” happened 6 THOUSAND years BEFORE the bible story was even thought of.

        • HereAmI

          The Bible story wasn’t “thought of”. It was a story known to every civilization around the world. Moses recorded the story in 1400 BC or so; the Flood according to the Book of Jasher occurred in 2348 BC. Dr Walt Brown conjectures a date of 3290 BC +/- 100 years, based on “rewinding” the orbits of the comets which regularly visit Earth; at the time period he gives, these comets were all in earth’s vicinity. The explanation is that there were, and still are to some extent, vast quantities of subterranean water which burst forth at that time, the so-called Fountains of the Deep mentioned in Genesis. Such was the explosive force of this ejection that some water escaped into space; in fact it is well recognised that the isotopic composition of the water from which they are formed matches terrestrial water. We have all heard the epithet “dirty snowballs” applied to these objects; the dirt is therefore earth’s dirt.
          1 Sam 2, 8 states “The pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He hath set the earth upon them”. 2 Peter 3, v 5 tells us that the earth “Stood out of the water and in the water”.
          Thus, the provenance of this extra water about which the article speaks.

        • HereAmI

          Genesis ch 1 itself, of course, describes the “firmament” as being placed between two bodies of water; we can understand this therefore in precisely those terms already spelled out.

        • Gil Carlson

          Are there aliens down there?

      • Prudence Wright

        It wasn’t just “Noah’s” flood….all cultures say a great flood happened….and even in the bible it supports not only the flood but why we are all different….you know the story of the tower of Babel right?

      • Pix

        The Noah’s flood story originates from the south east coast of the black sea, no where near the holy lands.

    • InCeNdIa_DrAcOnIs

      I think that the water was locked up in the atmosphere. This would explain why things grew much larger in the distant past, and also why lifespans were much greater too. The water would have shielded much more radiation, than what is currently blocked… by only our electro-magnetic field. For some reason, the water was released (could explain the raining for 40 days and nights) in the epic of Gilgamesh.

      • Ted

        Jules Verne was a much better writer! :wink:

      • Prudence Wright

        Our atmosphere is now full of carbon and other toxic elements that we have allowed to be trapped above us! We are filling our “bubble” with all sorts of toxic chemicals and killing ourselves in the process….and the sad part about that is every day we make those choices and we CHOOSE to spend less money on stuff that kills us and more money in stupid things that our neighbors can “envy”! Why do so many even CARE when they buy something how other people are going to like it or not? Isn’t the point of buying stuff is because we need it or it’s something that we can enjoy? Why does it matter what the neighbors think? Any why should they tell anyone who bought their own houses what they can and can not do with them? Why have we in society gotten so bad about telling others what they should be doing to make them fit into OUR realities when no one has respect for anyone else’s realities?

      It’s obvious — a worldwide flood covered the earth roughly 4,400 years ago. Look at how most of the dinosaurs died — including the giant one all over the newspapers this week. They drowned! Want to know what really happened? Read Genesis Chapters 6-9.

      Only 8 people survived — one man, Noah, and his family. Everything else on the planet drowned — people, animals, even the birds.

      Another “flood” is coming soon, only this one won’t bring water but fire. In Noah’s case, the ark saved him. In our case, the ark is King Jesus. Get with Him and you’re safe. Without Him … no chance.

        Ignorant Christians at work again. Thanks for nothing.

      • coolsaint

        You religious fanatics need to join the human race so the human race can survive , Beleiving that jesus is going to save only you is a grave SIN before man and a selfish betrayal of all humanity . You’re egotistical self regard because of what you beleive , which is totally false , is a grave wrong upon those who have and will incarnate on this planet .

    • Andor

      Who is the author here..Jules Verne?

      Science is our New World Order state sponsored religion. Public schools all over the world forcibly indoctrinate the Science Religion into children while banning the Bible. The Bible is 100% truth, including accounts of the Great Flood, ancient giants and, most importantly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are all sinners, but God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, gave His life on the cross as full payment for our sins, was buried three days and then resurrected. Only by acknowledging our sins as placing faith in Jesus Christ do we avoid Hell and enter Heaven.

      Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished, But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 2 Peter 3:3-7

      For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18

      O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. 1 Timothy 6:20-21

    • earlcity

      Sangely, I have never seen, as a kid or as a (half) grown-up a ook about the ante-deluvian world,
      which should be in favor of the Church….?
      I know about the confisciation of a lot of books with so called “forbidden knowedge”, by the Church,
      but if people should have known about the real history, why is that in contradction with Faith?
      In early days, there were the Hittites, kow weare the “Hypocrites”…

    • truthseeker4809

      The alleged chunk of rock that fell near the Yucatan peninsula that has caused the mass extinction of the dinosaurs may have actually been a huge several mile diameter sized chunk of ice. And then many small sized subsequent chunk of ice may have fallen into earth to cause the massive ocean level rising. Do they even consider this possibilities?

      • Pix

        Thought the Yucatan peninsula meteor was the one that wiped out all life on Earth. Because the underlying rock is sulfur and when combined with the atmosphere creates sulfuric acid. Complex life had to start again, hence we get two completely different sets of dinosaurs. I could be wrong though, quite some considerable time before my specialty time period. :lol:

        As for your giant ice chunk hypothesis, anything is possible but it’s highly improbable. I don’t see how there would be any evidence left for it to be based on for it to graduate to a theory. There is plenty of evidence the sulfur based rock at Yucatan was cause enough to create a global ELE.

      Pole shifts repeatedly destroy civilization and alter the surface of the earth. They are periodic and predictable. I believe the next one is coming in December 2019.

      • Pix

        LOL. It’s Earths magnetic energy field that periodically reverses polarity, it does not alter the surface of the Earth. The only creatures who would notice are those who use Earths magnetic energy fields to navigate.

      “These facts mean one of two things: either there was a mighty ocean bed subsidence (unexplainable by orthodox science), or a huge (likewise unexplained) addition of water to the ocean.”

      Presumably the author is uneducated, yes science can most definitely explain both. Since the start of the current interglacial period c20’000 years ago the sea level has risen 120 m. Fast at first then settling down to a steady 1 to 2 mm per year sea level rise for the past c10’000 years.

      There is no sedimentary rock in the Atlantic sea bed, it is all created by magma when America broke away from Europe and Africa millions of years ago. There is a huge mid Atlantic rift that starts at Iceland and travels the world, it used to be referred to as the Midgard Serpent where the story leads to it’s inevitable reactivation creating massive tsunamis and subsequent destruction of the world… or at least everything below c500 feet.
