Update On Deep Water Megalithic Stones and Structures Near Western Cuba
Back in 2000, Paulina Zelitsky had been contracted to take ocean
current temperatures at various depths for a global warming study and
was working in the waters northeast of Cabo San Antonio offshore from
the Guanacahabibes Peninsula. That peninsula is geologically anomalous
compared to the rest of Cuba and geologists think it originated from the
continental margin of the Yucatan Peninsula. Both have lots of porous
limestone mixed with bentonite clay and extremely fine sand. What
stunned Paulina about the unexpected structures on the sea floor were
the 90 degree angles and regular spacing of large objects as deep as

The reason Stonehenge was built 4,800 years ago remains mysterious. Archeologists have speculated that it was a place of worship or an early calendar. But a gynecologist thinks its design may be based on female genitalia.

When he compared the layout with the shape of female sexual organs, he found surprising parallels.

Walk into any modern museum, or open any history textbook, and the picture of the past presented is one in which humanity started from primitive beginnings, and steadily progressed upward in the development of culture and science. Most of the artifacts preserved in archaeological and geological records have been neatly arranged to fit this accepted linear view of our past.
Yet many other tantalizing bits and pieces unearthed offer a very different story of what really happened. Called out-of-place artifacts, they don't fit the established pattern of prehistory, pointing back instead to the existence of advanced civilizations before any of the known ancient cultures came into being.

It's a video screen whose center is dominated by a dark blob. Around the blob yawn strangely bloated, bowed, stretched, and sometimes doubled images of museum visitors. That's how they might appear if light from them were distorted by a black hole — an unimaginably dense package of matter whose existence follows from Einstein's theories.
