    The massive circular structure appears to be an archaeologist's dream: a recently discovered antiquity that could reveal secrets of ancient life in the Middle East and is just waiting to be excavated.
    It's thousands of years old -- a conical, manmade behemoth weighing hundreds of tons, practically begging to be explored.
    The problem is -- it's at the bottom of the biblical Sea of Galilee. For now, at least, Israeli researchers are left stranded on dry land, wondering what finds lurk below.....

    What could it be? The first temple? A hidden underwater city? An alien mothership? Justin Bieber's ego? :rimshot:


    I'm reminded of how an ancient computer was once found at the bottom of a shipwreck and I wonder what other fantastic things are still submerged beneath the depths. I think now there's more to be discovered at the bottom of the ocean than on land.

    Cool. There are other things like that in the area. Plenty of land that wasn't underwater until a few thousand years ago.

    I was going to say, NY Daily News is a trashy tabloid. Who knows what journalistic "standards" they follow? As far as we know they found some crackpot who says there is a large conical architectural feature at the bottom.

    A hidden thousands of year old round structure and no one will provide pictures? Mayhap it looks like this?

    Perhaps this is the secret location of Sealab.

    They have to be careful. Something like that will look amazing and innovative at first, but then fall apart the more you analyze it.
