Many have dedicated their lives to searching for the mythical city, first written about by Greek philosopher Plato. However, it may have been hiding in plain sight all along. A bizarre rock formation in the North Atlantic Ocean, around 50 miles from the coast of Miami, Florida, US, has become of particular interest to historians, it has been revealed.
Amazon Prime’s new documentary: “Proof That Left Historians’ speechless” reveals how ruins near the island of Bimini could hold the answer to the age-long question.
The Bimini Road is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas, that features an 800-metre-long compound of rectangular limestone blocks.
The 2018 series reveals: “Off the coast of Bimini under crystal blue waters, lie ancient stone formations.
“Many believe the Bimini Road, paved with perfectly cut stone slabs, are the remains of the mythical lost city of Atlantis.
“Numerous archaeologists and historians have dived off the coast to explore the stones.
“They were looking to find out whether they are a natural formation or man-made from a lost civilisation.”
However, experts have failed to agree on whether the formation is either a wall, road, pier, breakwater, or other man-made structure, leaving it difficult to conclude such claims.
The legend of Atlantis originates in Plato’s “The Republic” – a story handed down by generations.
In the book, Athens repels an Atlantean attack unlike any other nation in the known world, giving testament to his concept of a state.
The tale ends with Atlantis losing the favour of their deities and the city eventually sinks into the Atlantic Ocean.
However, the majority of present-day philosophers agree the story is of a fictional nature, claiming it was entirely made up by Plato.
