One major problem I had with it was that they kept showing the Egyptian wall carvings of the alleged helicopter, spaceship, tank, etc. which are known to a hoax, or if not an intentional hoax they were a mistake claiming to be advanced tech.
This is SO very important to know and remember when entering this forum, or trying to discredit everything, when someone is presented with information, the dissection, research, and continuous gaining of knowledge is meant for the individual, to do as much or as little as they choose.
Using the knowledge of Antarctica that has developed since the late 1930s, and reading the abundant reports of expeditions from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, it can be stated with conﬁdence that the unsubstantiated claims made by Szabo (1947), Mattern and Friedrich (1975), Friedrich(1979),Stevens(1997,2003),Farrell(2005)and Choron (date unknown) about a supposed secret German base in Antarctica, or about its re-supply by U-boats, are entirely fallacious. That applies also to the vast bulk of what Robert (2005a, 2005b, 2005c) writes on the subject of Britain’s supposed secret war in Antarctica.
Critical and comprehensive examination of all the available evidence in the light of what we know today about Antarctica and its science and history indicates the following:
1 - The Germans did not construct a secret base in Dronning Maud Land before, during or immediately after World War II.
2 - During, and immediately after World War II, British activities in Antarctica took place far to the west of Dronning Maud Land, on and to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula; the British did not construct a secret base in Dronning Maud Land from which to observe hypothetical German activities; nor did the British undertake military activity of any kind against a secret German base in Dronning Maud Land.
3 - Neither during Operation Highjump in the south- ern summer of 1946–1947, nor during the US Ant- arctic Expedition of 1940–1941 did the Americans manifest any special interest in Dronning Maud Land or in the possibility that there might be or have been a German base there.
4 - When the Americans did land in Dronning Maud Land, in February 1955, it was to reconnoitre for a suitable place for an airstrip; they manifested no interest in the possibility of German bases being there;
5 - Three secret nuclear explosions were made in the atmosphere south of Cape Town in 1958; they took place not over Dronning Maud Land, but in the upper atmosphere at heights of between 160 and 750km above sea level, and between 2280 and 3500km north of Dronning Maud Land. Radiation data from the ice sheet show that there could not have been any nuclear explosions in the atmosphere above Dronning Maud Land in 1958;
6 - The vast extent of the southern winter pack ice would have prevented German U-boats from reaching the shores of Dronning Maud Land from May to August 1945. In addition there is no channel through which U-boats could have penetrated the mountains of Dronning Maud Land to moor in some hypothetical underground cavern where they could have been serviced;
7 - The words of Byrd in the El Mercurio article of 5 March 1947 have been mistranslated in a way that suggests that he was talking about the dangers of ﬂying saucers. What he did refer to was the threat to US security of Soviet planes that could attack the USA across the polar regions, and of the dangers inherent in a world that was rapidly shrinking.
8 - The Americans on Operation Highjump were not attacked by ﬂying saucers, they did not lose four planes as a result of enemy opposition, and they did not leave Antarctica unexpectedly early because of such action, but because of the early onset of winter.

This story sounds absolutely ridiculous.
300 year old maps, UFO's destroying ships and causing a US fleet to turn around, and Hitler's obsession with the holy grail being at an Antarctic Atlantis...this is just...ugh.
