They are all locations in Texas and Louisiana (and I could list 100s more). Can you spot what is wrong with them all? Nope? Well lets get right to it - since when are rivers perfectly straight?

I am not aware of colonial powers building 1000s of kilometres of straight rivers and canals. That would have been a major civil engineering product requiring millions of men and a huge amount of money. Yet there is no mention of it in the history of the United States. So who built them? Who had the power and men and money to build them? Was Atlantis in North America?

What arent we being told?

Those canals were not in the hundreds. If we were to just skim over the surface text of Plato's description we have fifty canals, diisregarding the width of tbe canals. The canals were said to be only in the plain measuring 3,000 X 2,000 stade. The canals being 100  stade apart, we have 20 one way, and 30 the other way. As 20 X 100 = 2,000 and 30 X 100 = 3,000

But again, that's just one aspect of it, as there is more meaning deeper down.

Whats a stade?

Never mind I found a link. So that would be about 500 x 300 miles? Thats consistent with where they are located.

Ask the Egyptian priests, perhaps they were using the Egyptian stade. I make it out to be 186 meters, for each stade, on average.

But from Plato's point of view miles are more like it.

Nope, miles didnt exist back then.

Your stade measurement seems to be correct which would make the area of straight canals 558 x 336 which I`d looks about right for the area in Texas and Louisiana that has them in.

I checked out native American cities in the area and there is a lack of information. Just nomads, but nomads dont have a need to create canals and so many canals at that. There is no information I could find about the US building them.

The canals are just one of the many clues given for Atlantis. One cannot come out and make a claim of an Atlantis found based on a single particular, the canals.

You don't know what you are claiming. Don't just go look up the stade, go look up Plato's dialogues and get famiilar with tbe whole, before working with just one particular, my rabbid friend.

Use images that work in other browsers might be a better solution - or just take screen shots of what you are trying show.

Did you take a look at the evil Corps of Engineers?

Like @Hanslune  said. They are all U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects from the 20th Century. Lots of drainage problems there they need to worsen.

Well its opposite the straits of Gibraltar, there are plains, there are loads of straight canals.

Putting aside who made it, we still cannot explain what the straight canals and rivers are about. They are not man made and there is nothing that I can find in USA history about a mass canal building program.

Hey, goose, good work but I can't buy it. Sorry.

Email the USGS. I don't have time for this pure silliness.

I was all over the field around there. There are no ancient canals.

Additionally our friend thinks they are ancient then he can ask himself - whose maintaining them now - and why?

He can also look at the notes of the earlier explorers of these reasons - did they note all these ancient canals? I think not....

I never realized Intracoastal Waterways from the early to mid 20th century were considered ancient. Man do I feel old. :D
