Comments Paulina Selitsky made comparing the sunkens ruins off the
coast of Cuba follow with a link to the site where these are posted
with photos. Best regards, Krsanna
"Paulina Zelitsky knows Cuban and Caribbean archaeological histories
because one of ADC International's business services is to look for
underwater shipwrecks, treasures and artifacts. Paulina had
discovered in late 1998 the 100-year-old battleship, The Maine, that
blew up mysteriously in 1898, killed 260 American sailors and set
off the Spanish-American War. So when she saw the Cuban side scan
sonar images with 90 degree angles and long, straight corridors, she
thought of Meso American architecture and places like Teotihuacan.
"Teotihuacan, Mexico archaeological remains from Chronology and
Catastrophism Review, Vol. 1, 1999, showing three mile long Avenue
of the Dead passing the 15-story-high Pyramid of the Sun and square
stepped buildings spaced along the avenue.
"Teotihuacan might have been the largest city on Earth 2,000 years
ago. Archaeologists estimate that nearly a quarter of a million
people inhabited houses, apartments and palaces covering almost ten
square miles on the northeast outskirts of what we know today to be
"Pyramid of the Moon built at Teotihuacan, Mexico, between A.D. 150
and 225, its base measures 492 feet on each side and its height is
138 feet. The bigger Pyramid of the Sun also has a square base,
measures 738 feet on each side and rises 210 feet high.
"Teotihuacan was dominated by the 15-story-high Pyramid of the Sun
and the Pyramid of the Moon, plus the smaller but intricately carved
Pyramid of Quetzacoatl. Aztecs did not discover Teotihuacan until
the 1400s and gave the mysterious place the name "Teotihuacan,"
which in the Aztec language meant "City of the Gods" The Aztecs were
impressed by the city's size, splendor and the huge rectangular
rocks that fit closely together in its buildings and pyramids.
"Teotihuacan's most important religious structures were concentrated
in the ceremonial center of the city, an area about two square miles
in size. A great avenue ran north south for three miles with
buildings arranged symmetrically on either side while other streets
intersected going east and west in a perpendicular grid pattern. The
pyramid sizes ranged from 492 (Moon) to 738 feet (Sun) bases and
rose as high as 210 feet.
"Those dimensions are similar to the estimated sizes of some of the
deep underwater megalithic structures ADC International, Inc. has on
sonar images. On videotape, there are also singular, large, granite-
like stones that are curved with an unidentified line detail, or
squared off, or one that seems to be a pyramid-shape rising up out
of a rectangular stone.
