Gallery: Google Earth finds Atlantis or Atlant-isn't

Last week, a grid was discovered on Google Earth at coordinates 31 15′15.53N, 24 15′30.53W on the ocean floor 600 miles off the coast of Africa, sparking rumors that spread over the Internet that the ruins of the lost city of Atlantis were found. Or maybe they were plow marks from aliens?

Google was quick to discredit the rumor, saying that these lines couldn't have been from the lost city and were created by "ship tracks."
