it’s said that this map may show Antarctica hundreds of years before the continent was discovered (it was discovered in 1818). Furthermore, it is said to depict Antarctica as it was in a very remote age, before it was covered with ice.
The Miocene ( /ˈmaɪəˌsiːn/) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about 23.03 to 5.333 million years ago (Ma)
The polar ice caps melted for a while after that and it wasn't until Africa and Antarctica separated around 160 million years ago that it began to cool again. By 23 million years ago, Antarctica was mostly icy forest and for the last 15 million years, it has been a frozen desert under a thick ice sheet.

Almost 80 flags, ok.
Since there are tons of people interested in this thread can someone please explain to me why my Piri Reis theory is wrong and these data sets are correct, or at least concede that I'm onto something here?
That would make a really fun discussion and I'd possibly learn something (considering I got all this wrong and need to be schooled).
Or, alternatively, I just revealed a huge flaw in the entire modern scientific timeline belief system.
Let's talk about this.
OP, any comments?
A realistic person will come to recognize that ...
and a sane person would recognize that ...

Within 2-10 years politicians will forget “global warming” and start shouting “ice-age taxes” for mirrors to direct the sunlight to Antarctica. Then 50% of the money would disappear, 25% will be used to investigate why and the rest to get the actual mirrors up and running. Some scientists will loose their funding as well.
Is anyone capable of entertaining this or are we all too invested in "modern science's timescales" to consider that we got it all wrong?
