A Google Earth user has discovered what they believe to be a “400ft ice ship” lying in an iceberg around 100 miles from the coast of Antarctica. Unintentionally, this finding has sparked a range of conspiracy theories.
A user of Google Earth was shocked to find what looked like a cruise liner, with an array of windows and host of chimneys, in the south of New Zealand.
Since the strange discovery has been made, it has sparked a range of interesting conspiracy theories around why it’s there and what it could actually be. Some have said they believe it is a clue that there is something in the frozen continent, from a secret Nazi base to an ancient civilisation.
The images of the finding were originally shared by YouTube user MrMBB333, who has described himself as an Earth Watchman.
On his website, he states: “Over the last 10 years I have become very familiar with our planet, the mechanics of it and how it reacts to many different aspects of space weather and many other things as well.
“I monitor everything from the seafloor to the cosmos and everything in between.”
In one of his latest videos, the YouTube creator has pointed out a portion of snow-covered Antarctica in which he believes he has unearthed a ship.
Initially, the video begins by showing a large chunk of ice that is rising above the rest of the otherwise white surface.
However, when the content creator switches to the 3D view option it is clear that there is an outline of something which looks very much like a ship.
In the video, he says: “You look down on it and it looks like the outline of a ship.
“An ice ship if you want to call it – a 400ft yacht just sitting there off the coast of Antarctica.”
Before mentioning his finding, he also addresses another patch of ice which he claims shows evidence of a wall, entryways and even a place to park vehicles.
Pointing to areas where there is an exact 90 degrees angle, he explains: “Looks like a random iceberg but one part looks like it’s built with purpose, looks like an entryway, and the symmetrical features look like it has been created.”
He adds: “It doesn’t look random but as if it had a purpose.”
In the comments section, one person suggested that it had been area which had been uncovered by previous explorers and has now been left behind. Whilst another claimed that is a secret vehicle which has been hidden under the ice to ferry off the rich and powerful if there is ever a major global disaster.
One user wrote: “They’ve been going down there for 80 years or more so there’s no telling what they’ve found or left behind.”
Another said: “I was told a couple of years ago that there are ships built underground somewhere on upper east coast (like the ones in the movie 2012) to save the rich and powerful when Canary Islands get hit with mass.I’ve earthquake that will take out east coast.”
Meanwhile, one fumed: “I want to why politicians, old astronauts, and religious leaders were invited to Antarctica and the whole world still doesn’t know. Makes me ANGRY!”
This theory was being implied alongside the idea that Antarctica used to be a secret base for members of the Nazis and that the ship had been abandoned following the Second World War.
One person commented: “Antarctica is Nazi army base from Hitler days. Plaidiens. Helped him.”
In addition to this, others argued that there should be further investigation into this finding in Antarctica. People believe it could uncover discoveries about ancient civilisations.
