" The official science has been saying all along that the ice-cap which covers the Antarctic is million years old.
The Piri Reis map shows that the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice did cover it. That should make think it has been
mapped million years ago, but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time.
Further and more accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in the Antarctic ended about 6000 years ago. There are still
doubts about the beginning of this ice-free period, which has been put by different researchers everything between year 13000 and 9000 BC.
The question is: Who mapped the Queen Maud Land of Antarctic 6000 years ago? Which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do
You see the earth axis changes. northern canada just recently thawed and antarctica recently froze.
Research this and you will see that this is correct.
How long will it take for us to see it.

A quarter-billion years ago, forested islands flashed with autumnal hues near the South Pole ó a polar scene unlike any today, researchers say.
Geologists have discovered in Antarctica the remains of three ancient deciduous forests complete with fossils of fallen leafs scattered around the
tree trunks. The clusters of petrified tree stumps were found upright in the original living positions they held during the Permian period.
Some stumps were even poking up through the snowfield in the Beardmore Glacier area, said geologist Molly Miller of Vanderbilt University.
"These were not scrubby little things," Miller said. "These were big trees."
Some are estimated to have attained heights of 80 feet (24.6 meters), based on their trunk diameter.
Miller, Tim Cully and graduate student Nichole Knepprath came upon the three stands of the lost forests in December 2003. Knepprath will be presenting
their discovery on Sunday at the meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver.
Unlike any trees today, the long-extinct Glossopteris trees lived in stands as thick as almost a thousand per acre just 20 or 25 degrees from the
South Pole, a latitude at which they received no sunlight for half the year.
As for what they looked like, Glossopteris tapered upwards like a Christmas tree. Instead of needles, they had large, broad lance-shaped leaves that
fell to the ground at the end of summer. It's unknown if the leaves turned colors, said Miller, but it seems likely.
"These are early, early deciduous trees," said Miller.
They lived at a time when the Antarctic climate was much warmer - although the trees still had to survive an extreme light regime of low sunlight half
the year and darkness the other half.
"We don't have any modern analogues to these polar forests," said paleobotanist David Cantrill, curator at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in
The fossilized tree rings in the Glossopteris trees reveal that they grew steadily each summer and abruptly stopped for winter, as if a switch had
"They probably reacted to light (rather than temperature) to switch off," said Cantrill.
Modern deciduous trees slow down and then stop growing when cold weather moves in.
Although fossil trees from the Permian have been found before in Antarctica, this is the first time whole stands of trees have been discovered, said
Cantrill. With stands, researchers can now measure the spacing and calculate sizes of the trees to glean information about how much sunlight and
energy was available - valuable and rare clues to the Permian climate.
