I will concede it is not perfect but then it is not alone and other portolon (port to port) maps show other things which are not now accurate as well
as being possibly distorted as they were copyed time and time again with only the used and travelled area's being updated, one map comes to mind and I
can not think of the name but it is also 16th century and show's a small island west of Ireland called Hi Brasil, Well where it show's Hi Brasil is a
shallow part of the ocean which indeed during the last ice age was above water though it was a flat land and low it would likely have been forrested
and possible settled by humans whom could get there at that time.
Here is some reading on it,
Hmm the next on is Odd?.
Now back to it,
This is entertaining and probably more accurate than my recolections
Can't find the information I allude to as I read it yonk's ago but entertaining anyway.
My point is that it is just possible that it is real but distorted over time as since they never travelled there and had no other source than earlier
maps these more practical map makers filled it with what information they could find instead of here be monsters which some whom were totally ignorant
and had no access to these earlier maps did put.
This is just to support the possability the map is accurate but distorted by time and poor copy's, parchment was expensive and it would often be
copyed to goat skin etc.
Now an island with technology or science or magic and priests, scientists or at least people of knowlege as in the celt myths is interesting and if
there was a cosmic war which included the earth you can imagine the possible implications of geological level event's related to such but I am
stretching it a bit here, still that last video made me think of hawaii and icaland, both are sitting on volcanic plumes and though a very long time
ago the plume for iceland (which is litterally ocean floor near the mid atlantic ridge pushed upward by the magma chamber and thermal plume) may have
provided enough magma upthrust to push the western side of the european plate up enough to allow part's to form a dome and break the surface, the ice
age may have forced it down due to the continent sized ice sheet on top of the continent and the melt would then have increased sea level while the
thermal plume had long since had the continental plate move off of if but the time scale is on the order of tens of millions of years, but then again
so is the antarctic one, and the possible lost age of technology and cosmic conflict that the thread is about.
Still hypothesising away it is still interesting in itself.
