Thanks.

I entered those coordinates, and the white blob appears to be right along the Serti-Panwai-Bali Road. It's strange that nobody using the road noticed the ruins of Atlantis nearby.
In fact, there are a number of similar long, thin white blobs that seem to follow the path of the road.

Here's is my evidence for the existence of an advanced agricultural global civilization, its connections to Atlantis, evidence for the what destroyed the mythical city, and I have only just begun...

I just discovered an entire forgotten Atlantean-styled series of cities in Nigeria!

3D wall, anyone?

Lat. 7°35'54.42"N
Long. 11°10'44.41"E
How odd. Google and Google maps reject those co-ordinates as invalid. Why is that?
Google Earth rejects it also. Why might that be? Well I figured it out. The answer is that you have no clue how to provide search terms. How likely is it that you can provide terms for god or aliens if you are unable to map your own planet?

You have to cut off the "lat & long" parts, and put N & E before the numbers, rather than after.

Get this.......and this is brilliant........

.......I've been there too. Well, within 50 miles of it. We crossed from Nigeria into Cameroune at the Gembo/ Banu border crossing.

I can't see anything at all at that location other than trees. Trees are sort of what you expect in a tropical rain forest.



ETA....the white patch? It's either water (there's a hell of a lot of that in a rainforest), or it's a road-side quarry for road making materials. Such quarries were our standard campsites in the area. Crap photo, no chance of telling.

Here's a main road through that area:





Yes, I said road.

If it's a Google Earth image it is rotated 180 degrees, and the coordinates given in the op are somewhat to the southeast of the white rectangle.

There is definitely a river running through there. The white rectangle and other areas of white along the river look like flood plains, possibly sand. Another possibility is the sides of cliffs that have been cut by the river.

No sign of Atlantis, or a city, or a wall.

Ok, maybe it's a road. Looked like a river to me but my eye sight isn't the best.

The blog has my findings, argument, and thesis.

The photo is the central wall for two massive irrigation systems...YES there's water flowing through it...zoom out to see the rest of the system.

*There's a link at the bottom of the blog to more photos. I'll add more as I am able. https://albertknabe.imgur.com/all/

No-one gives a **** about your blog. We respond to what is posted here, and here you are posting baseless uninformed childish nonsense in a scattergun gish-gallop manner. What sort of reaction would you expect from grown-ups?

It's a *********** rainforest. There's water every damn where. There has never been any need whatever for irrigation systems in a rainforest. Those are rivers. Tell me when anyone has ever needed irrigation in that area, which gets X feet of rainfall in a year.

Here's some more water in the area:



There's water absolutely everywhere there. We crossed hundreds of log bridges like this:






And there is so much water that bog holes form every few yards along the road. this is a main road, I'll remind you:



Now, if there is that much water, can you tell me WTF anyone would be doing digging irrigation ditches?

Ah, but WHY is it so wet in the rain forest? Because of the irrigation systems!

Granted, they seem to have broken and are now causing the water to fall from the sky - but it's impressive they're working at all after all this time.

Outside a national park in Nigeria. It's still a road. How is that different from a road anywhere else in the world?

I suspect that KOTA has never had anyone pick apart his claims before, and he weally weally doesn't like it. It's so unfair that people don't just lap up his crap without question. His blog/s probably attracts gullible sycophants, and people with the same reality issues as those who find pictures of kids in raincoats on Mars.

I'm thinking he'll be back in six months, if not sooner.

In the meantime maybe he'll post more cool stuff on his new blog. Or maybe we'll all see him on the news, newly famous for discovering Atlantis was sitting there in plain sight and nobody noticed because they didn't think to use Google Earth. It's probably in Delaware.

Nah he's going away for the weekend and the Monday he'll be back trolling everyone with more and more dim pictures and incoherent babbling.

I came by after leaving to see how things were going. JKC where did all these junk threads come from? lol Oh, man its just endless 'nothing'.

I'm gone again - have a good time.

He was away for quite a bit longer until he reappeared a couple of months ago. But we'll first have to see if he really stays away as he promised us.

Coordinates on Google Earth and Google Maps will show the same place. It's the same planet. In fact they both use the same photo maps and data.

Why would they show anything different?

It looks like it may be an are of landslip on the side of a ravine??

Out of curiosity I glanced at KotA's blog again.

No new posts, but he has added a bunch of stuff onto the existing one because I guess he doesn't understand how blogging works.

If anyone wanted to know, he has now determined that this globe-spanning high tech civilization was destroyed about 5500 years ago which is... interesting. That's more recent than he had previously claimed, I think, which puts all his previous claims of dating in an awkward place.

He bases this on the fact that he can find reddish dirt all over the globe, and much like the fields he just KNOWS that this is all connected. So clearly the red dirt is all stuff that washed across the continents due to Mount Pinatubo erupting.

Mount Pinatubo, which also spectacularly erupted in 1991 and somehow failed to destroy us all even though we clearly don't have the same level of advanced technology as the Atlanteans. It's also odd that other people around at the time didn't seem to notice this happening.

So there you go, that's the current state of the King of the Americas.

For reasons I cannot fathom, simple agriculture is beyond KotA.

But you have to admit, his childlike wonder at literally anything he sees on Google Earth is adorable.

Unsurprisingly, he missed Australia, where iron oxide in the soil gives Australia its red tinge and allows us to be the largest iron exporter.
