Natural pattern, or lost civilization?

An article in the London Telegraph reports on an interesting find on the ocean floor that has predictably caused some to start talking about Atlantis.  Oddly enough, this started with a guy browsing images from the newly launched Google Ocean.  Check out this image:

I have a hard time believing that is natural.  Too many right angles, too much symetry.

The Telegraph’s Matthew Moore writes:

The network of criss-cross lines is 620 miles off the coast of north west Africa near the Canary Islands on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.

The perfect rectangle – which is around the size of Wales – was noticed on the search giant’s underwater exploration tool by an aeronautical engineer who claims it looks like an “aerial map” of a city.

While this could have nothing to do with any legendary Atlantis, there is no reason not to believe that a large city state could have existed on the spot in the distant past.  It would be interesting to learn more about the geology of the area to see if there is evidence is a huge collapse at some point.
