The mysterious 20,000-year-old giant pyramid under the Portuguese sea

Sailor Diocletian Silva during a sea voyage accidentally discovered a huge pyramid on the seabed near Portugal. The amazing thing is that this pyramid is at least 20,000 years old. This discovery once again raises big questions about human history. Could it be that before our civilization there existed many other advanced civilizations? 

According to Portuguese media, in 2013, Diocletian Silva was sailing on a boat searching for fishing grounds in the Atlantic Ocean when he caught a strange radar signal.

After that, he immediately followed this signal and discovered a large pyramid, the top of which was located 12m above the sea surface. The location of the pyramid is located between the island of São Miguel and the island of Terceira, in the Azores archipelago off the coast of Portugal.

This discovery surprised many people. Since then, experts and archaeologists have spent a lot of time researching this work. They were extremely impressed when they noticed that the bottom of the building was a pretty perfect square, 4 sides facing 4 main directions (east, west, south, north).

According to data collected via GPS, this pyramid is about 60m high, the square bottom is about 8,000m2 wide.

Not only scientists, Portuguese naval forces have also participated in solving the mysteries of this work. After a long time of testing and performing dating analysis, experts say that this work has sunk to the seabed about 20,000 years ago. Therefore its age must be at least over 20,000 years.

Researchers believe that the pyramid lying under the sea is the remnants of an advanced civilization in the past that we have never known.

Some say this is most likely a relic of the legendary Atlantis civilization. According to the philosopher Plato, Atlantis is a landmass larger than Libya and Asia combined, located in the Atlantic Ocean. This place used to possess the ultimate civilization, but after the people’s morals became increasingly corrupt, even the guts to blaspheme the Go‌ds were sunk to the bottom of the ocean.

Coincidentally, the Azores are located around faults between the North American, Eurasian and African tectonic plates, suggesting underlying instability.

Other vestiges of prehistoric civilization 

Not long after the Portuguese undersea pyramid was discovered, archaeologists from the Portuguese Archaeological Research as‌sociation (APIA) continued to find archaeological evidence that humans once inhabited the Azores for thousands of years before the Portuguese discovered the archipelago in 1427. Evidence includes numerous pyramidal rock structures, some as high as 13m.

In 2012, archaeologists also discovered some rock art on the island of Terceira, which they believe dates back thousands of years.

Three years later, many ancient archaeological remains were also identified on all nine islands of the Azores archipelago. These include a Roman ruins, Carthaginian sanctuaries, cave paintings and megalithic structures.

These evidences support the theory that there once existed an ancient civilization in the Azores Islands, and maybe it was the civilization that built the giant pyramid on the seabed.

According to most scientists today, humanity is a species of organism that appeared no more than 2 to 3 million years ago. And according to the theory of evolution, human civilization formed not beyond 10,000 years ago.

So who created the underwater pyramid 20,000 years ago? This discovery once again causes us to rewrite the origin and history of mankind. Before our civilization this time there existed other advanced civilizations that for some reason perished.
