Answering the unanswered; Answers to unanswered questions of the mysterious Kochi island

Why did you do this analysis? What gave you interest in this issue?

Why do we need all these analysis to prove there is no island, when ships are visible there?

Scientific temperament is what we need these days, and I wanted the issue to end with a single post(not even this post was intended) closing the case from all sides, giving no room for further questions. I could have commented on a single Twitter thread or a Facebook post, but the goal may only be partially achieved. Now the media took it to the mainstream without a second thought as they have proof from all sides and reached a larger crowd than my posts could have.

How competent are you in this matter to question those theories and university?

What is your intention in doing this analysis and proving there is no island?

Does any organisation funded the research?

Does the coastal erosion at Chellanam have any connection with this?

Does the island have any relationship with Ockhi or 2018 Kerala floods?

Can’t it be an underwater feature/sand bed shown in the Google Map? How can Google be wrong?

Can’t it be an island rising below the sea bed even below the height that ships are required to navigate?

What is your comment on the “Plankton Assemblage” theory?

When did you notice this artefact?

Why do Google Maps have the ocean floor textured image instead of a high resolution image over the ocean like we have it over the land masses?

Is this island the only case?

What error might have happened with Google for having this error?

How sure are you on this theory of Google’s error?

Can I share/ reuse your images and details in the post?
