I can only imagine how long you've been waiting for this day.  The day when any article about Madagascar pops up and you can finally use that login that you've been saving.

Theoretically there could have been an Atlantis comment, but I guess people don't really care about that anymore.

No one has yet gone to Retard Level 7 and said "Atlantis"

I thought Atlantis, too.

I didn't read any of the comments on the site except for this one on top:  Just another piece of evidence confirming Noah's flood, along with the submerged cities off Cuba, India, and Japan among other places.


So much derp.

I saw on the History Channel how this was Atlantis but the ancient aliens sunk it dining a war.

Ocean goes up, ocean goes down, ocean swirls round and round...this must mean Jesus loves us or something.

Sgygus: Though Gods they were
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
Let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
Hail Atlantis


Atlanta was a city, landlocked,
Hundreds of miles from the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean,
Yet so desperate the city's desire for tourism,
That they moved offshore, becoming an island,
And an even bigger Delta hub,
until the city overdeveloped
And it started to sink.
Knowing their fate, the quality people ran away,
Ted Turner, Hank Aaron, Jeff Foxworthy,
The Guy Who Invented Coca-Cola, the Magician,
And the other so-called gods of our legends,
Though gods they were--
And also, Jane Fonda was there.
The others chose to remain behind
On their porches with their rifles,
And one day evolve into mermaids,
And sing and dance,
And ring in the new.
Hail Atlanta!

Rather interesting. Continental crust usually does not sink like the denser ocean crusts. I wonder if these are the subducted remains of something off the Indian or Antarctic plates.

That article is evidence for why English majors are the worst people in the world.

Perhaps Madagascar drowned under the weight of the world's largest Corvette.

Atlantis would've been in the Atlantic Ocean, silly. This is in the Indian Ocean, so it must be ...

Indiana!

Um, yeah there was a microcontinent in that area at one time. It is called India. Look at the continental drift models. India during its migration would pass right through the area the guy describes.

Two wafers, a double Flake 99, and box of mint choc-ices, please. Sprinkles and raspberry sauce on the 99.
