I heard Jonathan Gray speak on the radio once, and in all the places it could have been, it was Alabama!
But anyway, he had some very interesting and convincing arguments. I'd be interested in reading his book, thanks for posting!

As accurate measurings of earth came about officially in historical records at the end of the 18th century then how do you explain the above?
The chinese would have needed
Spherical trigonometry in exact measurments of mathematical presscion
Advanced geodetic instruments to measure longitude and latitude
Knowledge of cartography matching our modern knowledge today
They would have known the exact shape and size of the earth.

I didn't have time to read the entire post, but I remember reading stuff about this. And I see it being Highly Possible. I've heard from many people that the last Ice Age was caused by a Nuclear War. Since this was ONLY 12,000 years ago, and the Earth is 4.6 Billion years old... I can see many civilizations possibly rising and falling during these periods. Let's see... Dino's died 65 million years ago. let's give mammals about 15 million years to become completely dominate. This leaves 50 million years of opportunity.
In 50 million years, don't you think it possible that there were humans that were as advanced as us... or other species as advanced as us? The progress we made in 12,000 years is amazing. What is 50 million divided by 12,000? That is 4,166.67. That means that 4,166 "human cycles" worth of time has passed. I think it more than possible that other creatures, whether humans or not, had some sort of advanced civilization as we do.
Geologic timelines are also constantly under debate. if these times are wrong, what if it was actually twice as long since the dino's died out? That would be 130 million years worth of time. All these stories you hear of ancient machinery being found, could very well be true. I just hate that these things are hidden from the world, whether it be by government agencies or places like the Vatican.

You need to do some research on his claims... look into both sides. Many of us have, and we've found him pretty lacking.
