A mysterious, circular structure, with a diameter greater than the length of a Boeing 747 jet, has been discovered submerged about 30 feet (9 meters) underneath the Sea of Galilee in Israel.
Scientists first made the discovery by accident in 2003 using sonar to survey the bottom of the lake but published their findings only recently.
"We just bumped into it," recalls Shmuel Marco, a geophysicist from Tel Aviv University who worked on the project. "Usually the bottom of the lake is quite smooth. We were surprised to find a large mound. Initially we didn't realize the importance of this but we consulted with a couple of archaeologists, and they said it looked like an unusually large Bronze Age statue."

No.

The place where they found it is 10 meters deep or less. The structure looks to be a few meters high, so in reality it is only a few feet from the surface of the water.

hmmmm, found it in 2003, it's readily available to investigate being in only 30 feet of water, and they finally publish their "findings" 10 years later? color me unimpressed.

I bet it is an underwater structure that Jesus used to give the impression he was actually walking on water. Kinda a David Copperfield like illusion. It may have taken us thousands of years but we are finally onto you JC!!!!!
