Author Robert Sarmast (“Discovery of Atlantis; the startling case for the island of Cyprus”), conducted two expeditions in an area of the eastern Mediterranean Sea between Cyprus and Syria.http://discoveryofatlantis.com
Findings from the second expedition, October 23-26, 2006, indicate an extraordinary mound and wall-like natural formations. Although there could not be derived definitive evidence of man-made structures, Sarmast firmly believes that with the further development of scientific technology, one day we will sustain incontrovertible evidence of man-made materials/structures now buried under perhaps tens of thousands of years of silt and sediment.

Robert Sarmast reveals Urantia Book role in quest for Atlantis
Sarmast, in an interview by George Noory on Coast-To-Coast on Monday night, August 7-8, 2006http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/10/… revealed that it was the Urantia Book’s 54-year-old description of a sunken rectangular land mass, its accounting of its sinking, and its placement as having once been “a long narrow peninsula–almost an island–projecting westward from the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea,” . . . “the neck connecting with the mainland by only twenty-seven miles at the narrowest point” that actually inspired him to quest to gather hard data and evidence within the scientific arena, and to correlate anecdotal information from ancient cultures and mythologies of the surrounding lands, in order to actually physically find this sunken land mass. It was during his research that he discovered the many points of correlation between the Urantia Book’s account and description of the sunken land mass and Plato’s account and description of “Atlantis” within his writings, “Critias” and “Timaeus.”
Sarmast thereafter attacked the project of gathering scientific and logical proof demonstrating that the physical site indicated by the Urantia Book is the very site of Plato’s legendary, “Atlantis.” Sarmast confirms that he believes not only the Urantia Book’s account of the catastrophic event it says occurred approx. 33,800 years ago, but also its claim that this sunken land mass was once the site of the original Garden of Eden, as he has gathered together a wealth of correlative indicators from the many ancient mythologies. Sarmast further alluded to a correlation in timing between the Urantia Book’s claim of the arrival of Adam and Eve on this island-peninsula (37,923 years ago) and the scientific observation of the sudden acceleration in the physical evolution of the human species coincident with marked technological advances.
