ScienceDaily (Nov. 18, 2004) — Radiocarbon tests of carbonized plant remains where artifacts were unearthed last May along the Savannah River in Allendale County by University of South Carolina archaeologist Dr. Albert Goodyear indicate that the sediments containing these artifacts are at least 50,000 years old, meaning that humans inhabited North American long before the last ice age
The findings are significant because they suggest that humans inhabited North America well before the last ice age more than 20,000 years ago, a potentially explosive revelation in American archaeology.
Essentially, by focusing upon materiality and ignoring their true spiritual nature, the people brought upon themselves a series of three cataclysms. The first, about 50,000 B.C., destroyed their major power source. The second, about 28,500 B.C., caused the continent to break into three smaller islands: Poseidia, Og, and Aryan. The third and final destruction – which is the one mentioned by Plato – occurred about 10,500 B.C. and caused the three islands to sink, forcing those who survived to migrate to other parts of the world.

Atlantis? Obviously not. Atlanteans used bronze age technology (at the very minimum). The article says they found stone tools, ie a stone age society at best. Since paleolithic stone age extends from like 2.5 million years to 10,000 BC, 50,000 years aint all that shocking to me.

This isn't actually new news, it's several years old. Here's an article about Dr. Albert Goodyear.
You can also check out the Dr. at Wikipedia, where it says that this discovery is controversial; meaning mainstream doesn't go along with it, but then they're not known to accept new information easily.
