City Found Under Water

Divers off the shore of Egypt have found the ruins of a city under 20 feet of water.

Herodotus wrote about visiting the city of Herakleion in 450 B.C.E., but historians and archaeologists always figured that he was just smoking crack, which never made sense to me since Herodotus died over 2400 years before cocaine was first crystallized for the purposes of combustion. Now the reputation of this dead historian has finally been restored.

Apparantly Herakleion fell into the sea following a major earthquake that some say was caused by the decadant, permissive atmosphere fostered in the city. Let's just hope that the Fundie Christians still don't believe anything they hear from an archaeologist, OK?

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
