Default Giant Crystal Pyramid Discovered In Bermuda Triangle

http://www.pakalertpress.com/2012/06...muda-triangle/

“This suggests a culture that is more than 50,000 years old and that this entire land mass was once above water supporting a civilization that had no trouble moving around tremendous stones to build very large, complicated societies which we know absolutely nothing about, other than the fact that someone built them and they are older than biblical history.

i don't know if this has been posted yet but anyhow i found this article really interesting.

The whole thing is utter shite, top-to-bottom. There is no pyramid off Bermuda. The "Bermuda Triangle" doesn't exist. Most of the references in the story are to its own site or to other conspiritard sites. It's filled with words like "claims," "suggests," or phrases like "Some theories of Atlantis propose..." This ain't science, folks. Viktor Grebennikov? Seriously? The man who discovered how to levitate on an anti-gravity platform but who couldn't take pictures because the "geometric power" of the chitin he used somehow jammed his camera? And "Bermuda Triangle Death Vortices"? Whatever.

The last sentence of the article:
Quote:
And, of course, the world’s universities are not especially eager to explore the idea that very ancient ruins containing high technology may exist that challenges virtually all of the foundations of their pet theories.
Right. There is an instant PhD and probably a Nobel prize in this, were it true. But of course, no scientist wants to work on it because scientists don't want to discover new things. Historians don't want to learn more about history. New sources of energy? Who cares? We need to ignore all of this in the name of the Great Scientific Conspiracy To Hide The Truth!

I did a quick search for "doctor of naturopathy, Ray Brown of Mesa, Arizona." The first five pages of Google hits (I couldn't be bothered to search further) are nothing but junk pseudoscience sites (or ads for naturopaths). Not one piece of valid, peer-reviewed scientific evidence, but a whole lotta Maya calendar, Atlantis, Edgar Cayce, and meaningless drivel like "The structure of this pyramid and the sphere looks like a kind of transmitter / receiver, designed to deliver or receive energy and information." Source. Many of the Google hits simply copy-and-paste the first linked article. No photos, no published papers, no real science at all. Just shit.
