Divers seeking Atlantis in Bahamas

By Susan Cocking - Miami Herald

Agroup of Florida-based technical divers is poised to try to solve a New Age/ancient mystery near the island of Bimini, Bahamas, 50 miles off the South Florida coast.

Gainesville-based Global Underwater Explorers -- best known for mapping massive underground springs in North Florida -- has been hired by a Virginia Beach-based non-profit group to try to uncover evidence of the Lost Continent of Atlantis.

The Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) is devoted to the teachings of the late Edgar Cayce -- one of America's best-known psychics.

Dubbed the "Sleeping Prophet", Cayce died more than 60 years ago after making predictions both accurate and otherwise about thousands of topics and events.
