Carla Sage

Carla Sage is a fictional archaeologist featured in the November 11, 2003 issue of the satirical Weekly World News (1979-2007), under the headline "Lost City of Atlantis Found—Underneath Sahara Desert!".

In the article, the renowned Dr. Carla Sage believes she has found Atlantis under the Sahara Desert in Libya.

Unfortunately, the article took on a life of its own and was picked up by so many fringe websites, that it became mistaken as fact, and is still cited even today.

The article is attributed to Mike Foster, one of the many pen names of comedy writer C. Michael Forsyth.
