Are the Carnac Stones Part of Atlantis?

Drive to the northwest part of France and you'll run into a region called Brittany. A small village, Carnac, is in this peaceful region.

It's very quaint and different from Paris, consisting of livestock, beautiful green fields, and quiet French life. However, something is different about this village.

Look closely. Carnac isn't only the home of livestock and quiet French life. It is also the home of the infamous Carnac stones. These ominous stones stand in Carnac's landscape, dotting fields with rows of gray, thick rocks. Some resemble prehistoric cemetaries, although no one is buried here. These rows of rocks engulf northwestern France, edging off into the ocean.

Some researchers think these stones are part of the lost city of Atlantis.

Perhaps they are.

What are the Carnac Stones?
The Carnac stones are a collection of monoliths (usually called megaliths) in northwestern France, surrounding the village of Carnac. These stones range in size and thickness, from small, scattered, round rocks to massive, pointed rocks that tower over 6.5 meters. From 4500 B.C. to 2000 B.C., people places these rocks all over northwestern France.

These rocks are crudely constructed. These are normal rocks mined from different areas within northern Europe, with little modifications. They are unlike the rock statues of Easter Island in that regard. These people merely rolled it to its location, set it up, and left it for eternity (or in this case, over 5,000 years).

The Carnac stones are assembled differently from area to area. This might be the time gap (the stones' construction is over a period of 2,500 years) or just a pace in direction. These stones had different purposes varying from area to area. Some Carnac stones are aligned like desolate graves; some Carnac stones are actually stone forts.

What's more interesting is these stones trail off the French shores into the ocean. These stones existed on solid ground -- at least that's what researchers believe. If that is the case, then a dramatic change in sea level brought these stones to its watery graves. The sea level dramatically changed around 12,000 years ago. It's very possible that these stones were constructed well over 4500 BC. But who? Even the Celts didn't exist at this time. Was it the Celts' ancestors?

Possibly. These ancestors could also come from the lost city of Atlantis.

It is believed Atlantis disappeared in 10,000 B.C. This coincides with the time the sea levels rose around Carnac. There is a time gap between the time these rocks were built and when they were closely built aruond Carnac. Coincidence? Some researchers think these prehistoric Celts could be the people of Atlantis, disappearing when the sea levels rose in 12,000 B.C. It's very possible that today's Celts -- the people of France and England -- are the descendants of Atlantis.

Could it be? No one can deny the proof that the half-emerged rocks off Carnac's shores are much older than the ones immediately surrounding Carnac. They might date back to 12,000 B.C. When the ice caps melted, Atlantis disappeared, creating the Atlantic Ocean -- hence the name "Atlantic".

We might already have evidence of the lost Atlantis and not even know it.

You might be the descendant of the lost people of Atlantis. Not the Celts
