For a complex that spreads for 311 miles is seems odd that they have only taken about 16 photographs in total and almost all of those seem to be of the same rather small rocky structure from different angles. Each of the websites has exactly the same photographs so I don't see how the five sources are any more convincing than one. As a result it's not clear whether the rocks are a man made artifact (either ancient or modern) or natural geological formation. There are certainly much larger and rather more geometrically regular rock formations which are natural.

Like this shocking evidence of an 'ancient multilevel outdoor paved patio area' in Northern Antrim:

They've been saying that for decades. It looks like a bunch of basalt blocks to me. And that's not a very nice header for your subject line. :shock:

When I saw the title I tought of Herbert's Dune...
The lost planet of Arrakis? ;)

The funny thing with the Atlantis myth is that it's all over the map.
One day in the Caribean, the other in Japan, then in Anctartica, then in the Mediterranean...
Speaking of which: Santorini seems like the most likely candidate for the historical basis or the mythical Atlantis.

Findings of supposed locations of alleged Atlantises abound, but there is only one primary source for the myth, a cautionary tale by Plato...

I saw one "map" that suggested Atlantis was in Ohio! :lol:

Oh, it's at least as funny as "aboot" jokes are... mildly funny in context.
