If orthodox researchers have so much confidence that their pet theories are true, if they're so positive that intelligent human civilizations could not have existed 10,000 years ago, then why are they so afraid of studying this and other underwater sites? Are they afraid, after all, of being proven wrong? Why would that be such a bad thing, anyway? Is saving face really so much more important than knowing the truth?
They continue to insist that the Japanese gentleman who found the site is mistaken, or that he's only trying to make money from tourism. Well, as for making money, it seems like a bad business venture, since storms and powerful currents often make diving impossible even for professionals, let alone amateurs who only want to take home souvenir photos. And as for his being mistaken: He's had many years of experience diving in those waters, far more than any of the researchers themselves. I'm sure he's come across oddly shaped rock formations before, yet for some reason, THIS PARTICULAR rock formation caught his attention, so that he immediately thought "man-made."
We can only hope that public demand will force archeologists to take notice of this site and study it, even if it does ultimately prove to be natural.
