Megalithic Structure found beneath Sea of Galilee

From the online article:

"The mysterious structure is cone shaped, made of 'unhewn basalt cobbles and boulders,' and weighs an estimated 60,000 tons the researchers said. That makes it heavier than most modern-day warships."

Wouldn't it be disappointing if there was a mundane explanation, like a pile of dumped ballast that someone pointed out?

Since the Sea of Galilee (ancient Chinnereth) is completely below sea level - this is clearly a phenomenon that will require considerable help from the Geology department - my guess is that whatever it is could go back as far or farther than Gobekli-Tepi - and, for a side note, no ships ever sailed that sea that carried significant ballast - all were smaller than 30 feet by 15 - (earlier ambitious modifications of the Coracle)

There is so much weird ancient stuff out there, waiting to be discovered. Submerged structures have also been reported beneath Lake Titicaca, beneath Rock Lake in Wisconsin, and off the coast of Okinawa. The island of Malta supposedly has fossilized wheel-cart ruts running off the land into the Mediterranean, perhaps dating from the era when the Mediterranean was still just a valley, and the "Straits of Gibralter" just an enormous waterfall which hammered the senses.

I read a book a few months ago, Looking for Dilmun by Geoffrey Bibby, which dealt with Danish archeological expeditions in Bahrain and other Arabian islands, searching for the legendary Sumerian land of "Dilmun". Bibby told of exploring an ancient-looking mound on one of the Arabian islands (I forget which one) ---at which point he was instantly surrounded by angry Muslims bearing guns. Turned out that the mound -around which the city was built- was located within the women's quarter of the city, where the females took their baths, and thus off-limits to all men. Bibby eventually, after much wrangling, arranged to be given ONE HOUR to visually search the site: at which time they found shards of four-thousand year old pottery lying everywhere along the ground, untouched for ages. Bibby managed to sneak a single photograph of little girls watching curiously as they looked around (he'd have been shot if authorities knew he'd taken the picture!) As far as I know, this site is still unexplored by science.

Mt. Judi (Judi Dagh) in Iran which is identified in several sources, principally those regarding Sennacherib,
is similarly off-limits - it is the only site which has extra-biblical references as "the" site of the "Ark" of Noah (Gilgamesh etc, ad infin.)

I've always wondered why no Cthulhoid creatures have ever been encountered in the Middle East. What was so horrible that mankind's collective unconsciousness blotted it from racial memory? Or maybe it's just the stopper for God's bathtub.

Charles Fort reports shipboard sightings of enormous revolving wheels of light, seen at night beneath the surface of the Arabian Sea.

In my more credulous moments, I've imagined that all the various conflicts in the Middle East have less to do with oil, than something hidden beneath the waters of the Gulf.....

I can highly recommend this book on the topic written by Reza Negarestani:
