Some entertaining news for our readers: Google Earth has recently fixed a fault which gave an accurate position for the lost and magical continent of Atlantis. Here’s the story: for a while now, a snap on the Google Earth map represented the Atlantic seafloor with a grid-like pattern, which some vigilant people insisted were sunken streets of Atlantis.
Atlantis is known as a naval power which conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa approximately 9600 BC. However, when their attempt to invade Athens failed, Atlantis sank into the ocean in a single day and night of misfortune.
To great disappointment of people believing in magic, Google insisted the grid was only a data artifact from the sonar method usually used by the oceanographers to map the seafloor. In the beginning of February, Google finally updated its software using new seafloor data from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Of course, after the update the grid pattern disappeared and Atlantis was no longer on Google maps.
People who were sad to see Atlantis sinking again, this time forever, may suggest that the lizards didn’t want humans to find the lost continent. As for the search giant, it was simply obeying the orders. Meanwhile, a number f experts, including David Sandwell, a Scripps geophysicist (who definitely isn’t a lizard), told in the interview that the initial version of Google Ocean represented a newly developed prototype having high resolution, though also containing too many errors. In fact, the statistics says for itself: it took UCSD undergraduate students more than 3 years to find out and fix the blunders, according to experts.

|I enjoyed this article. Been waiting for an update on this. Thanks.|
|On the plus side, Google Maps still keeps us updated with Godzilla's current position.|
|Interesting to say the least.|

|what is a lizard? Since when do lizards tell humans what to do? And why should Google put something on the map, what isnt there?|
come on now people.. what the hell? Stop eating at MacDonalds, it's affecting your reptilian brain.

|Here I got something for you that explains why lizards are retarded and why your news is nuts:|
Lizard brains don't let their owners experience more complex states like loyalty. When an alligator lays her eggs, she leaves them. The baby alligators emerge fully programmed for life and as fierce as she is. The babies fend for themselves from the first breath. They have to. Their mother, father, and any other alligator will happily have them as lunch.
About 100 million years ago, loyalty appeared on Earth. Mammals emerged. They have more complex brains than reptiles. Specifically, mammals have a large brain that grew on top of the lizard brain. Dogs have two brains. They have the lizard brain, which forms a bump at the top of the spinal cord. This brain controls breathing and basic functions just as in lizards. It is hardwired to make mammals get turned on by sex, move automatically away from danger, and be able to defend territories. So much, so lizard.
Mammals’ new layer of brain—called the limbic system—is more complex. It is more densely wired and allows for richer experience. Dogs experience love and loyalty, as anyone knows who has one. Dogs are as adept at positive emotional attachment as we, and sometimes clearer about it.
Dogs’ limbic systems are anatomically distinct from their lizard brains. Evolution is conservative. It keeps old designs that work. The lizard brain is a beautiful design for performing basic bodily functions. Instead of starting from scratch when designing mammals, life kept the early hardwired structures and added a more complex layer to perform the subtler functions of mammalian lives.
Poetry, art, language and reason appeared on Earth a few hundred thousand years ago when our ancestors evolved. All apes have a third brain. In us, it is huge. It is inside this human brain that mathematics and music, deception and politics, religion and racism live. It is the Machiavelli as well as the Mozart brain, the Eichman as well as the Einstein brain.
This neo-cortex is functionally semi-independent from the lizard and dog brains. That is why our experience is so odd. Consider this: language lies in the human brain, but emotions lie within the separate dog and lizard brains. So the emotions are in a different world from language entirely. Not only that, reason too lives in the new human brain while emotions live in the older brains. The lizard and dog brains are running their emotion programs while the human brain is running its thinking programs. They don’t have too much to do with each other.
