    Default A new Atlantis location is proposed: the Richat structure, in Mauritania. But watch the video. It's compelling

    Folks, this new video has gone viral with over a million hits in 5 days.

    The theory — that Atlantis was located in Mauritania, deep in the Western Sahara — isn't new: there's a website about it here, where the notion was first presented back in 2011.
    But I have to say, the apparent correspondences are very interesting. There's a lot of data that seems to fit surprisingly well. The notion has been re-presented here in a new 21 minute video that's really quite a lot of fun to watch.


    The proposed site is a very strange geological formation called the Richat Structure. It's usually photographed from space, and the interest starts because it seems to have the exact Atlantean dimensions and layout as stated by Plato — who in turn had the information passed down to him from Solon, who knew a thing or two.

    There's a 2013 Avalon thread about the structure, here:
    And this is what it looks like. The Richat Structure is on the right, and an artist's impression of Atlantis, from Plato's description, is on the left.



    The original documentary is on YouTube in 6 parts, simply called Visiting Atlantis. It's slightly distorted (squeezed widthwise), so I downloaded the parts, corrected the distortion, joined it up, and the whole thing can be seen here: Enjoy.
    The video quality is only 360p, however, which isn't that good. An HD version is on Gaia TV here. If anyone has it downloaded, please send it to me by WeTransfer.com.

    I caught a video about this on YouTube yesterday.

    The measurements in relation to Plato’s description were very convincing, I wouldn’t object to any of it. I’m doing some research on a different topic at the moment, which suggests a large portion of North Africa—mostly around the Mediterranean—was lush greenery up until 700AD, until a catastrophe struck and brought about the dark ages...

    Imagining what the location in the video would’ve looked like with rivers flowing down the mountains would be awe-inspiring. The Atlanteans certainly seemed to have a great eye for aesthetics.

    Interesting, but not completely in accordance with Plato's account due to the video's selective comparisons. Plato also states from the outset that:

    "[Atlantis] was an island larger than Libya ..."

    Although it's easy to assert that Richat was an "island" city, it would be disingenuous to equate the city of Atlantis with the island of Atlantis, which, according to Plato was "larger than Libya".

    Plato also states:

    "9,000 years since the war occurred, as is recorded, between dwellers beyond the Pillars of Hercules and all that dwelt within them" And, "... this city of ours was in command of the one side ... and in command of the [other] side were the kings of Atlantis."

    It is widely accepted that the "Pillars of Hercules" have long referred to the straits of Gibraltar. The Richat location is clearly to the south and inside the pillars and hardly matches Plato's geographical description.

    I suspect that a more plausible explanation of Richat is that if it was a city that it was one modeled on the layout of Atlantis. However, if it was a city at all was not really covered in the video so perhaps that issue is subject to further archaeological study. It's certainly not a stretch to assert that if this was a city that it's builders decided to replicate the great city of Atlantis.

    It may be in the same style, like a satellite city or even--a predecessor.

    Actually, it's precisely the same size as the City of Atlantis was said to be: 127 Stadia across. That's 23.5 km. The measurements are a perfect match.

    I like it how wikipedia has locked the page on Atlantis and Richat structure. Anything that the left agenda does is a coverup! Incredible proof of the real thing. It's easy to spot truth from lies nowadays - listen to any left talk about any subject matter - and understand that the opposite is true.

    Haven't watched the vids yet but:
    What has been seen with today's satellite and radar technology, what geology and or remnants of foundations, tracks etc ?
    What reason for it's lack of exploration ?
    Any odd energy readings from the center or area ?

    It reminds me of some film effect where some mighty Wizard or Demon stomping their magic staff into the ground sending out masses of energy, leveling the ground or in this case sending out vast ripples

    Another one of those possible Electric-Universe Arch welding effects.

    A very interesting place for sure and in many ways an ideal candidate for Atlantis.

    This previous posting from InCiDeR shows the geologic make up of the site and area.

    InCiDeR
    Quote Re: Seen from space, nobody knows what it is
    Some more information:

    The formation of this structure initially was attributed to a meteorite impact due to its resemblance to a crater. Geologists now theorize that the structure is a result of different types of rocks being eroded at different rates of erosion. This theory "holds water" as igneous rocks within the structure are more resistant to erosion than the host sedimentary rocks.

    The age of sedimentary rocks that surround Richat range in age from Late Proterozoic (2.5 billion years) to Ordovician (480 million years).

    The interior of the Richat Structure itself contains the following rock types:

    • Rhyolitic volcanic rocks – Consist of hydrothermally altered tuffaceous rocks and lava flows. These are from two different volcanic centres, remnants of two maars (low-relief volcanic crater).

    • Gabbroic Rocks – These rocks form two concentric ring dikes. The inner ring is approximately 3 km from the centre and has a diameter of about 20m. The outer ring is about 8km from the centre and 50m in diameter.

    • Carbonatite Rocks – are a rare type of calcium-rich igneous rock. These intruded and cooled between 94 to 104 million years ago. Within the Richat structure, 32 carbonatite dikes and sills have been mapped.

    • Kimberlites – Igneous rocks of deep earth origin and potentially diamond hosting. Kimberlites occur in the northern area within Richat, including a kimberlitic plug and a few sills.



    Quote This formation is believed to be the remnants of a dome, a deformational feature made up of symmetrically-dipping anticlines (see here for an explanation on synclines and anticlines). The desert weather caused the dome to shed various layers, flattening the structure.

    The interior of the Richat structure contains rhyolitic volcanic rocks, gabbros, carbonatites and kimberlites. The rhyolitic rock is made up of lava flows and hydrothermally altered tuffaceous rocks, which in turn are part of two distinct eruptive centres, interpreted to be the eroded remains of two maars.

    Thirty-two carbonatite dikes and sills have been mapped within the Richat structure; the dikes are generally about 300 m long and about 1 to 4 m wide. The carbonatite rocks have been dated as having cooled 94 to 104 million years ago. A kimberlite plug found in the northern region of the Richat structure has been dated at 99 million years old.

    The sedimentary rocks exposed in the dome range in age from Late Proterozoic (2.5 billion years) within the centre to Ordovician sandstone (480 million years) around the edges. These sedimentary rocks dip outward at 10°-20°, and Paleozoic quartzites form the resistant beds outlining the structure.

    The centre of the dome consists of a siliceous breccia covering an area that is at least 3 km in diameter; it varies in thickness from 40 metres thick in the centre to a few metres along the edges. The breccia is made up of fragments of chert, quartz-rich sandstone, diagenetic cherty nodules, and stromatolitic limestone. The hydrothermal alteration, which created this breccia, has been dated to have occurred about 98.2 ± 2.6 million years ago.

    It was initially believed to be a crater due to its circularity and the presence of coesite, an indicator of shock metamorphism, in rock samples collected from the Richat structure. However further analysis of rock samples showed that barite had been misidentified as coesite.

    Even if this Richat Structure is natural it dose not mean it wouldn't have made the foundations for a great ringed city like Atlantis.
    Then at some time a vast disaster scrubs the area clean leaving virtually no remains.

    Quote The Richat Structure, Mauritania (above, 21.12°8N 11.400°W) is 2,708 miles from the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, comprising a resonant distance that is 10.9% of the Earth's mean circumference of 24,892 miles.




    The famous giant concentric sedimentary formation actually has a disregarded twin structure situated to the west of the main structure. This smaller concentric companion feature (above, 21.015°N 11.834°W) is located 2,737 miles from the Great Pyramid, at exactly 11.0%. The two concentric bedrock features are aligned directly with the Great Pyramid, with all three sites falling along a single axis.

    These magnificent structures may exist in many other parts of the world, hidden below topsoil and vegetation. While the hot, dry Sahara winds are a menace to all life, the exposed bedrock of sites such as these reveal the fundamental principles underlying planetary infrasound resonance.

    I haven't checked out the alignment yet.

    Do go to the original documentary, besides the newer summary. I uploaded it in the best quality/format I could. It's really extremely interesting.

    Thanks Bill. What is very interesting is that the Wikipedia site is locked and has no reference to the Richat Structure. Yet another clue to the truth of our past being censored and kept from us?

    Edgar Cayce stated that an ancient civilization flourished in what is now the Sahara desert of Africa.

    The below is found here. https://www.edgarcayce.org/the-readi...ent-mysteries/
    Reading #364-13:
    Edgar Cayce: ...The Nile entered into the Atlantic Ocean. What is now the Sahara was an inhabited land and very fertile. What is now the central portion of this country, or the Mississippi basin, was then all in the ocean; only the plateau was existent, or the regions that are now portions of Nevada, Utah and Arizona formed the greater part of what we know as the United States...

    Reading #276-2:
    Edgar Cayce: ...In the one before this we find again in this same land now called Egypt (this before the mountains rose in the south, and when the waters called the Nile then emptied into what is NOW the Atlantic Ocean)...

    Reading #5748-6:
    Edgar Cayce: ...In those periods when the first change had come in the position of the land, when the Nile (or Nole, then) emptied into what is now the Atlantic Ocean, on the Congo end of the country. What is now as the Sahara was a fertile land...

    As if to confirm some of the above, an article published in Science (August 1986), reported that the Shuttle Imaging Radar from the Space Shuttle had discovered previously unknown river valleys beneath the driest part of the Sahara. Through satellite imaging and on-site archeological investigations, it appeared as though the present day Nile had changed its course, once flowing across the Sahara, through Africa, and into the Atlantic Ocean! Only time will tell how many more of the readings historical claims regarding such places as Atlantis, ancient Egypt, and ancient Persia, will eventually be verified.
    The A.R.E./Edgar Cayce Foundation's recent satellite project was the first comprehensive analysis of all subsurface features around Bimini. The project covered 630 square miles and imaging was done via the IKONOS satellite. Via special processing, imaging was able to look at the seabed contours at a depth of approximately 75 feet. The precise location of all features that were identified is easily determined via special program.



    The conquering of self is truly greater than were one to conquer many worlds.
    --Edgar Cayce

    Quote Posted by Andre (here)
    Interesting, but not completely in accordance with Plato's account due to the video's selective comparisons. Plato also states from the outset that:

    "[Atlantis] was an island larger than Libya ..."

    Although it's easy to assert that Richat was an "island" city, it would be disingenuous to equate the city of Atlantis with the island of Atlantis, which, according to Plato was "larger than Libya".

    Plato also states:

    "9,000 years since the war occurred, as is recorded, between dwellers beyond the Pillars of Hercules and all that dwelt within them" And, "... this city of ours was in command of the one side ... and in command of the [other] side were the kings of Atlantis."

    It is widely accepted that the "Pillars of Hercules" have long referred to the straits of Gibraltar. The Richat location is clearly to the south and inside the pillars and hardly matches Plato's geographical description.

    I suspect that a more plausible explanation of Richat is that if it was a city that it was one modeled on the layout of Atlantis. However, if it was a city at all was not really covered in the video so perhaps that issue is subject to further archaeological study. It's certainly not a stretch to assert that if this was a city that it's builders decided to replicate the great city of Atlantis.
    Hi Andre, this might interest you.

    Info about the Mauritania ship and her sister the Lusitania.

    Quote The ship's name was taken from Mauretania, an ancient Roman province on the northwest African coast, not the modern Mauritania which is now to the south.[2] Similar nomenclature was also employed by Mauretania's running mate, Lusitania, which was named after the Roman province directly north of Mauretania, across the Strait of Gibraltar

    My last reply to this interesting post, well I'm not sure how relevant it is to the main OP.

    Just musing:
    If the present position of Mauretania was in fact the very first position of the 'Pillars of Hercules' with the 'Richat Structure' being one side of it or at least part of it.
    I'm saying the above because I can see how there might well have a been a long lost drained inland sea there.

    Plato's "Beyond the Pillars of Hercules" (Straits of Gibraltar) description applies 100% with the Richat structure, because from the Mediterranean (Greece, Egypt, etc) one would have had to sail out into the Atlantic to reach Richat/Mauritania. At that time, hypothetically, Richat would have been a major sea port on the western coast of Africa.

    Note that Mauritania and Mauretania aren't the same places, though both were in NW Africa.
