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 
Mexico City.

"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.
