Default CIty of Atlantis found?

Interesting article at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sciencean...ff-Africa.html

had a look at the following coordinates: 31 15'15.53N 24 15'30.53W.

You can put them in google earth.

Here is a picture of the supposed town grid..looks convincing ! It's about 620 km off the coast!

Zoom in until the 'eye altitude' is at about 20 miles. If you can't see it, zoom in some more. If you think it's a hoax, keep going... there's structural evidence...

Yes..the word spells Hamad, which is joined up so the canal waters pass through all the letters. If you zoom in on the remaining dry letters...you can see bulldozer tracks.

...interesting !

Looks like a canal or marina project... but why?! What does it mean?! Apart from the fact it'll be a swine to navigate.

These letters have been a hot topic on the internet since 2006 where they are known as the large mystery letters on the ground. It turns out that it was the owner's name of the island.
