Near Bimini Island, a discovery blew wide open of a man-made underground road called Bimini Road. Theories exploded about what it could mean. Could it be the location of Atlantis? However, after carbon dating, scientists discovered that it was made specifically by geological forces and not human.
Atlantis of Japan
Similar to Bimini Road, Yonaguni is a major find near Japan that many think is their version of Atlantis. For Japan, it was an ancient civilization called Mu that vanished perhaps by a tsunami. Controversy surrounds Yonaguni with arguments for and against its man-made formation.
Steaming Black Sea
Under unique circumstances when the sea air is cold and the sun burns hot, the Black Sea, among others, produces the phenomenon known as sea fog.
Recorded in 1999, the Julia sound was picked up by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It lasts for 15 seconds and sounds like a eerie whining. Originally, scientists had no idea what this was but now believe it was an iceberg.
Baltic Sea Anomaly
Since its discovery in 2012, the Baltic Sea Anomaly continues to mystify scientists and has produced many conspiracy theories about UFOs. And there’s a good reason why: the discovery at the bottom of the Baltic Sea looks a lot like the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars. At first glance, some believed it was formed by natural causes, but they ruled that out after inspecting the substance of the structure; the metals inside couldn’t have been formed naturally. Some scientists think that it’s a structure formed back in the ice age.
