I just came across this video. It was posted with in the last 15 hours. IMO, its worth the watch. Its roughly an hour and covers many megalithic sites around the globe. It shows the Earths oceans as they were prior to the end of the last ice age. It covers Gobekli tepe, Tiahuanaco, Easter Island, Baalbek.. among other sites. It covers the Piri Reis map. Along with other examples of Antarctica well before it was discovered in the 1800s. It displays quetzalcoatl, the Anunnaki, and carvings within Gobekli Tepe, all displaying the mysterious "man bag". The video explains the possibility of how they are all linked together. Leaning towards a lost civilization that had existed prior to the end of the last ice age. The video is presented by Graham Hancock.




This video illustrates how different our true history really is from what we are taught in the mainstream, it’s the very mysteries that get anyone asking ‘who did that?’ and ‘how did they do that?’ even after so many years of apparently having the answers. The current accepted understanding of the origins of civilization date to between 8,000 and 5,000 BCE. Many historians hold the belief that prior to this time, mankind was comprised of largely nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes, citing the pyramids in ancient Egypt as the first signs of modern civilization. While history cannot change, our interpretation of new evidence can shine a light on misconceptions and put to bed old myths.


I ask that you watch with an open mind. If anything, it covers some of these megalithic sites in ways I had not seen before. That for me, was worth the watch in itself!

Enjoy~

I love these types of topics and spend much time thinking/reading about them

I believe we will find/ have found artifacts in Antarctica

I agree!

I wasn't aware that the Piri Reis map actually depicts the Bimini Road (on an island). That kinda blew my mind. If true, It authenticates Piri Resi claim that he created the map from older maps that he had recovered from the Library of Alexandria!

If only we had access to those archives today!!

I am definitely going to watch this.
There are so many civilizations that we have yet to acknowledge.
Hidden from us over the centuries.

Thanks for the excellent find!

Its actually one of the best summarized videos I've watched. It ties in the Younger Dryas impact event as the point in history that brought down this previous civilization. (or what was left of it)

I have been reading Graham Hancock level stuff for years. His thinking has evolved, but the basic idea remains the same. About 12-14,000 years ago the last Ice Age ended rather suddenly. The cause was likely astronomical and the result was a sea level rise of really not all that much--probably less than 100 feet, but given that "civilizations" tend to build on sea coasts with rivers nearby it probably flooded the lot of them. THAT'S where we get "Noah's Flood" tales. People often think these were advanced Atlantis-like civilizations, but I don't think so. I believe they wee Greek/Roman type civilizations perhaps on the edge of the Renaissance in terms of scientific advancement, i.e.: Pretty involved math and geometry, but no E=MC2 or rocket ships and Interstate highways. The total human population when that happened was probably in the low millions. A lot of people got wiped out, but a lot of people did not as well and though the standard of living dropped for the sea coast dwellers who survived, most agrarian economies probably chunked along fairly normally. That's my single-paragraph summary of what likely happened.

I've read a lot Hancock and stuff on forbidden archeology in general. Very fascinating topic to me.

Imo, at this point. I think it's pretty much "settled science" with regard to our complete lack of understanding of the real history of our ancestors.

There are just to many obvious discrepencys and holes in the commonly accepted histories in mainstream archeology.

A big one for me, and very simple point to illustrate, is some of the buildings and structures that employ more advanced and better building techniques BELOW the supposed advanced accepted early civilizations.

I'll be sure to watch the video when I get to a pc.

Keep in mind. The impact event that wiped out the Clovis people, and most likely any mammal on north america, also darkened the skies/reduced temperatures for nearly 1000 years. Putting the planet *back* into a lesser ice age.

Whom ever wasn't initially killed by the rising waters.. would of then had to survive without the sun for who knows how long. Even a month with reduced sunlight would be enough to kill crops and spread disease..

Now that its being recognized and accepted as an event. Its the missing piece to his book "Fingerprints of the Gods". He goes into that a bit towards the end of this presentation.

Worth the time to watch.

This pretty much solidifies the notion that civilization as we know it completely changed around 13k years ago. The comet that struck the N. American continent probably completely destroyed numerous advanced civilizations around the world. I would even hazard a guess that Atlantis was one of them. The people from that time may not have had the technology we do today, but may have harnessed energy in some form that was forgotten over the years. An energy that could move those megaliths into place, and shape their walls as we see them.

Seeing the loss of those ancient maps and what information was destroyed is incredible.
We have NO idea what these people knew.

Completely fascinating subject.

I'd find Hancock more compelling if he hadn't deliberately lied about so much of his evidence.

Id find your reply more compelling, if it were more than a single sentence.

Would you mind to elaborate?

Did you watch the video? What he "presented", doesn't require a degree in archaeology, to connect the dots. I realize that some people don't fancy others for their own personal reasons. But its not about him, its about the evidence hes sharing. Its not hard to come to your own conclusion when its all laid out in front of you.

OK. Keep in mind that the 'flood myth' pervades many different cultures all over the world: Asian, Indian Native American, Arabian, etc. And that means enough people survived all those cultures to transmit the myths forward. In other words, it wasn't an "extinction"; it was a set back. And given that it has been only 12,000 years or so, it has been a quick recovery.

Condemning the man with no evidence is not credible. We already know he has had opposition from academia. The main reason for that is that he's not one of them. If you can present some 'convincing lies' he has made I'm sure we would all be interested, but your comment as presented is worthless.

If their was an advanced civilization 12 thousand years back, who mapped the Earth, it means by default that they were accomplished travelers and could get around the globe. Which begs the question why does our DNA read differently for different regions. How can I get a DNA test that links my ancestors to a particular region. Which means if their was an advanced civilization most of us were the local workers, staying in one place and doing the bidding of whoever had a wider understanding of the power structure in place . So are we looking at a relatively small elite group getting wiped out and the rest of us getting by as best we could with whatever skills remained?

What you said, pretty much. I see it as pretty much like the Age of Discovery. Several cultures had mastered worldwide navigation and were exploring the Earth (and mapping it), but most of the word's cultures were still fairly stagnant with many interior cultures not having a clue that the rest of the world existed. Although I do not know how much credence to give it, there are stories of Romans mining copper deposits in Canada. I could see there having been Bronze to emerging Iron Age cultures in India, Japan, China, and even the Americas. Not so much in Europe and northern North America because of, you know, Ice Age. Those sorts of cultures could have pieces together Piri Reis. My overall them here is that you need not postulate a super-advanced culture akin to our own or better to explain the types of things that have been found.

I agree with you.

What I envision is North America being totally cleaned out. A 2mile thick ice sheet being vaporized is going to send a huge flash flood down the Mississippi valley. Around the rest of the globe its recorded the sea level rose 28 meters.. That's 84 feet!! The amount of vaporized water going up and into the atmosphere is going to create some killer downpours! What seems like endless rain, along with rising oceans... People are going to write about that.

There's your flood.

Howdy

Actually he didn't. May I suggest you read the book, 'The Piri Reis Map of 1513, by Gregory C. McIntosh. He covers a lot of these later myths about the PR map. Fortunately the map has written on it many notes and those explain how it was made and from what sources it came from.

....but that, while true, is of no importance to his true believers. HG paints a compelling picture- IF you don't know anything about the subjects he is 'twisting' to fit his agenda. It is information provided 'to the choir'.

But the evidence shows that didn't happen, sea rise was slow, very slow easy enough for people to just retreat up the river they were living on. Sedimentation doesn't support your contention of such drastic changes in short term, they were long term.

If north America was 'cleaned out' why are their large mammal remains there? Why are there archaeological remains prior to the Younger Dryas climate event?

Now I'll watch the video tomorrow but if it is like most of his material it should be laugh filled
