New aerial photos of an ancient city in the Pacific Ocean have renewed a debate about the existence of the fabled “Lost City” of Atlantis.  The new photos have now brought real questions about the existence of the previously assumed fictional city.

The latest episode of the Science Channel’s What on Earth? reveals new aerial images of the site, which was built on top of a lagoon. The virtually uninhabitable Nan Madol is located just off the main island of Pohnpei in Micronesia in the Pacific. As the city is separated by tidal canals and is protected by the ocean by 12 sea walls, Nan Madol is often considered the ‘Venice of the Pacific’. The name Nan Madol means ‘spaces between’ and is a reference to the tidal canals that crisscross the ruins. The Micronesian city’s ruins are not only that of a once-great city of man-made stone islands, but they also inspired the city of R’lyeh in H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos (a shared fictional universe.)

Mark McCoy, who led the team of researchers at the city’s ruins, said: “It now looks like Nan Madol represents a first in Pacific Island history. To me, in its prime, Nan Madol was a capital. It was the seat of political power, the center of the most important religious rituals, and the place where the former chiefs of the island were laid to rest.”

According to the Smithsonian, the buildings that makeup Nan Madol incorporate an estimated 750,000 tons of black rock. The Saudeleurs must have needed to move 1,850 tonnes every year, despite a population of only 30,000 people and no access to pulleys and levers. The Saudeleur kingdom also spent several centuries creating the stone structures which still stand on 92 artificial islands in a lagoon off the coast of the island of Pohnpei.

Evidence of the early human activity on the islands dates back to the first or second century BC, but it is not known exactly when the construction of the artificial islets started. Theories put the city’s construction timeframe from the 5th to the 11th century AD.

Locals are so frightened of the city, that they won’t go near it, out of fear that spirits and ghosts intent on taking life now inhabit the desolate place.  They have dubbed it “the island of ghosts.”

  1. THAT GUY says:

    >Is This The Lost City Of Atlantis?

    Yup, that is it, no doubt about it.

  2. Yohan Smythe III says:

    “Atlantis” – in the pacific ocean?

    Um, I thought Atlantis was supposed to be in the Atlantic ocean?

  3. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    Can we send the libturds there?

  4. Star says:

    This is likely Lemuria another lost continent. Atlantis was in the Atlantic, Lemuria in the Pacific.

  5. RSBL says:

    Atlantis was highly advanced, hardly the stone age looking place they are showing. Pre-flood civilization.

  6. aljamo says:

    I thought they found Atlantis under the ice at the South Pole along with vast land areas undiscovered beyond the pole.

  7. Archivist says:

    Being in the Pacific, it would be the lost continent of Mu or Muror, as written about by James Churchward. I bought all of his books back in the early 1970s, except the first one, which was out of print. But I have that one on the computer.

    • JustMe says:

      Another possible connection to Mu, is Yonaguni, near Japan. Underwater structures exist, that would have been above current sea level around 8-10 thousand years ago.

      There are sunken structures off of the NW coast of Cuba, more likely part of “Atlantis”. Sunken structures exist off of the coast of Dwarka, India. There are others elsewhere, also, near Greece, and Turkey, for example.

      But, none of those things fit the narrative, so they cannot exist, and we must ignore them…

      • Oddfellow says:

        Yonaguni belongs territorially to Japan, but is a very small island close to Taiwan, so it’s located in the farthest reaches of Japan to the west. It has even its own language.
        Use Google Maps.

    • marie says:

      I had Churchwards book too, but don’t know if i still have it. Good book. Yep.

  8. Old Codger says:

    My BS Detector just went off – AGAIN!

  9. If the city was built 5th thru 11th century AD or even 2nd century BC, it’s neither Atlantis nor Lemuria.
    This article is simple click bait. It’s worse than Jeremiah Johnson telling us again about wars and cataclysms ending civilization tomorrow. (For sure, this time!)

    • Oddfellow says:

      Yesn it IS clickbait. And it is a badly written article with serious inaccuracies; as visible in the comments.

    • "Oddfellow says:

      I just realized there could be some misunderstanding – I was talking about the source Mac Slavo based this article on, the article on mirror.co.uk. It is very inaccurate, it even got the distance LA-Pohnpei completely wrong, and it wasn’t even corrected although some reader commented on it.

  10. Annabel Morgan says:

    Atlantis? No, wrong ocean. But it would seem to be a likely candidate for the fabled Hawaiiki, where the Polynesians say they lived before departing to voyage throughout the Pacific and settle in Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Rapanui, etc.

  11. Anonymous says:

    A 91 year old missionary from Indiana had thousands of artifacts from all over the world he had collected. Agents, art curators and museum curators descended upon on the home and seized the collection. Looking for some possible “illegal” item, of course. Never did hear the outcome of this. But I bet the Smithsonian had their nose in that raid.

  12. pipes says:

    WTF.
    OLD news.
    This site has been known of forever…I saw it featured YEARS ago on a Discovery show.
    Yet all of a sudden, it’s splashing all over media the last few days.
    Stupid.

  13. Brian says:

    Plato described it as having been past the pillars of Hercules which some scholars think was the Straits of Gilbratar. Others think it was the Isle of Santorini. The lost city in the Pacific was Mu.

    • "Oddfellow says:

      Mu (or Lemuria) wasn’t a city but a continent.

      The catastrophe which destroyed Santorini must have been tremendous but it wasn’t Atlantis. According to Plato, there was a population of 64 million people which were wiped out with Atlantis (or its last remnant, rather).

  14. PO'd Patriot says:

    When I first saw the picture I thought it was Puerto Rico. Wrong ocean.

    • Eisenkreutz says:

      During the hurricane my island was covered with a 15 ft storm surge. Everything, absolutely everything was underwater. People lost everything they had in this earth and we had full blown shtf actually. It was nothing glamorous. Survival sucks. Bad.

  15. War Thog says:

    I saw this on another media site the other day. Atlantis? Doubt it. Just another ancient civilization. Besides One would think that since Atlantis was 1st heard of from Aristotle or Plato then, one would think that more than likely it would’ve been located somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. My 2 cents….

  16. Press 9 for English says:

    They’ve (science) know of this site for many years.

  18. Plan twice, prep once says:

    So inquiring minds want to know, did rising sea levels due to Stone Age global warming cause it to go underwater?

    • Yohan Smythe III says:

      You only asked half the question! … and did they tax the people claiming the money would be used to stop it?

    • Oddfellow says:

      Rising sea levels seem very unlikely to have been the cause (at least not directly). Atlantis’ last remnant, according to Plato, was destroyed in 24 hours (or one night). No sea level would rise that fast, IMHO.

      It must have literally sunk, being engulfed at the same time. Imagine a huge tsunami racing over hundreds of miles, until only a very few of its highest mountain tops are left sticking out of the ocean to this day – Madeira and the Acores….

  19. TEST says:

    Are we there yet?

    “… in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly.” II Timothy 3:1-5

  20. Is This The Lost City Of Atlantis? Incredible Aerial Photos Of Ancient City In The Pacific

    No … and this is without a doubt … very old news on this area.

  21. Old Codger says:

    Google Earth says this place is only about 200 metres square!

  22. Michigan Wolverine says:

    Maybe SHTF is down there jumping sharks

  23. Sorry. Not Atlantis. My dog was able to crawl under my fence yesterday and while I was in the woods looking for it, I stumbled across Atlantis. I should have told you sooner. I could have saved you the expense of all that aerial photography. My bad.

  24. Iain Lewis says:

    Why do articles about Atlantis always refer to Atlantis as a city? Atlantis was said to be a large continent, not just a city.
