Helike (Greece): Archaeologists claimed, for the longest time, that it didnt exist. Even after extensive sea floor imaging they concluded that "there is no lost and sunken city here". This was eventually refuted when holes were drilled a bit more inland.
Tamil Homeland: According to the Tamil of South India and Sri Lanka, they came from a "homeland" which is now submerged under the ocean. Mainstream archeaologists have, again,, for the longest time, claimed that the Tamil came from somewhere else (from lands north), ignoring the ancient texts as "legend and myth". As more and more underwater ruins are found off the coasts of India, this will have to be revised.
In 2002, geneticist Spencer Wells completed a study of human out-migrations from Africa utilizing the DNA of Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert who, according to Wells, have the oldest human DNA on earth. From analysis of DNA specimens collected in Tamil province, Wells concluded that the earliest significant wave of human emigration from Africa was that of San Bushmen to southern India and then along coastal routes to Australia (the Aborigines). Wells's findings are consistent with the conclusions of various forensic anthropologists, historians and oral historical accounts that classify the Tamils as Negroid or Australoid peoples.

Artifical structures off the coast of Japan/Taiwan, Cuba, Bimini, Cyprus, Ireland, India...theyve ALL been labelled "natural formations"...
...for no other reason than "they cant be artificial because when these places were above water, there were only hunter-gatherers around that couldnt build stuff like that".

I had read about this when it came out. Interesting to note that Paulina Zelitsky has been quoted as saying although she couldn't explain these ruins as natural phenomenon she also couldn't rule it out.
Also interesting is the fact that there have been no further updates on the progress of her investigations into these supposed ruins since 2002.

Just because it can't be ruled out doesn't make it a point in your favor. In the least, you insinuated that it was artificial in nature. Care to retract that?
Interesting that the original discoverers haven't presented any proof one way or the other in the last 6 years. Not a glowing recommendation!

Then lets talk about how things are lost overtime. Underground, underwater, eroded away, decayed away. I think people underestimate what a huge difference there is between 3000 B.C. and 10 000 B.C. Thats 7000 years difference and a lot can happen in 7000 years.

The problem is material does survive and did survive from 12,000 BP and even before. In that existing material no evidence can be found for an "advanced" civilization.
400,000 year old javelins, these are interesting as they survived more than one ICE age too. Why no tools from these boys?
They need to be told about the real stuff that we know of that existed before 3500 BC -- like some of the material that I was documenting that dates from 7,000 BC.
