National Geographic to explore underwater city

Did civilization exist in Central America 40,000 years ago? If so, it rewrites some anthropology:

The Russian-Canadian oceanographer Paulina Zelitsky reveals that in late October, she will lead a new expedition, from the Port of Progress, to explore a suspected site of a lost underwater city near Cuba financed by National Geographic. The team has been readying a specially equipped ship in Canada for the expedition. A hundred people plan to deploy a mini-submarine and several robots to depths of up to half a mile. In October of 2004, Paulina Zelitsky and her team found evidence that an island collapsed into the sea, but they could not complete the mission due to technical deficiencies. The scientists managed to film a pyramid of almost 35 meters height (115 feet) and to extract stones embedded with animal fossils incapable of living at a depth of 700 meters (2,300 feet).

The existence of pyramidal structures deep underneath Cuban waters is verified. Paulina Zelitsky has been steadfast in her theory of the collapse of the city as a result of a powerful earthquake more than 12,000 years ago. The scientists are in agreement that the geologic formation of the Yucatan Peninsula is as a result of seismic activity.

This discovery demonstrates that the first North Americans arrived earlier than previously thought and that all did not arrive on the continent by means of the Bering Straits. There is even a new theory which surmises that the Mayans of Yucatan come from Central America. British archaeologists said that they found human tracks in Puebla that date from 40 thousand years ago, which contradicts the general idea that America was populated not more 13,500 years ago. The city lies between Cuba and Yucatan submerged to more than 600 meters with structures very geometrically cut, passages, tunnels and even temples with diverse symbols that arose in a place where officially human beings never lived. Most of these megalithic blocks have gigantic dimensions, reaching to five meters of height and several tons of weight and were cut to form greater structures. Photo from

I don't know George Filer, but his website is really amusing.
