Speculation that there are mysterious pyramids at the bottom of the Atlantic is circulating online.
Conspiracy theorists have been debating whether a video posted to YouTube shows two ancient structures off the coast of The Bahamas.
Believers argue that they are proof of inhabitance of the region by an ancient race of people, similar to the Aztec culture of South America.
The video was posted by SecureTeam10’s YouTube account, which has become a household name in UFO and paranormal circles.
Scott Waring, who created the UFO Sightings Daily website, is a regular contributor to the channel.
He was using Google Earth to scour the ocean floor for anomalies, when he came across the strange shapes.
Speaking in the SecureTeam10 video, Mr Waring said: ‘I found these two pyramids on the ocean floor near New Providence island, it is not far from Florida.
‘The lines on the pyramids are easy to make out and are proof that the nearby island was once inhabited by an ancient man or Aztec-like people.’
Narrator Tyler Glockner agrees with Mr Waring’s assessment, adding: ‘I have to say these do look like pyramids, obviously ancient pyramids that would have some weathering over the years.
‘One thing about the ocean is that it actually preserves things much better, because you’re not out there in the open air where things can rust and deteriorate.
‘If these are pyramids, they could be much much older than, say, the ruins found on Earth that are barely still there and have nearly crumbled to dust.’
The pair point out that the two pyramids are not the same, with one appearing to be a perfect three sided structure, like the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The other has a step-like design, which they compare this the famous Mayan temples, like Chichen Itza.
The reaction from viewers of the video on YouTube has been mixed, with some buying into the elaborate explanation on offer.
Referencing a theory about an ancient alien race, Bartofilms said: ‘Do these underwater pyramids intersect one of the lay lines?
‘There are these lines that intersect the the great pyramids in Giza, as well as the Inca and Maya pyramids.
‘Some think the Pyramids may have been navigation waypoints for the Annunaki’
Others took a more cynical view.
