Dr. Ray Brown discovered a pyramid on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970. Brown also discovered roads, unidentified metallic instruments and a mysterious statue holding a crystal. The metallic devices and crystal were taken to a Florida university for analysis. It was discovered that the crystal amplified various energies that were passed through it. A huge eleven-room pyramid with a crystal capstone was found 10,000 feet under water in the mid Atlantic Ocean as reported by Tony Benlk. Ari Marshall discovered a 650-foot high pyramid off Cay Sal in the Bahamas in 1977. A sunken city was discovered 400 miles off Portugal by a Soviet expedition led by Boris Asturua. He reported buildings made of extremely strong concrete and plastics and the remains of streets and monorails. All of these and other discoveries were printed in daily newspapers when they occurred, but ultimately were ignored and rejected by researchers, authorities and historians because they are unable to explain away these findings with their own, closed minded theories.
