(this refers to the finds in Cuba and around)
This time coincides with the introduction of people in the New World and colonizing virtually every region of it. Consequently, evidence for human occupation sites, particularly sites left by colonizing fluted point bearing people, is expected on the continental shelves. The map shown to the right is a compilation of the distributions of fluted points across the United States. It reveals several areas of concentration that may have components submerged offshore.
Here is a map from an old CIA Factbook, ironically
Some 20,000 years ago, for example, ice sheets locked up much of the world’s water, lowering the oceans and laying bare vast coastal plains—attractive hunting grounds and harbors for maritime people. Today these plains lie beneath almost 400 feet of water, out of reach of all but a handful of underwater archaeologists. “So this shines a spotlight on a huge area of ignorance: what people were doing when sea level was lower than at present,” says Geoff Bailey, a coastal archaeologist at the University of York in England. “And that is especially problematic, given that sea level was low for most of prehistory.”
Thanks for the colorful maps, and while they speak to generally accepted theory of plate tectonics and shifts they don't really help when trying to make out what was exposed from approx. 20k to 10k b.c. during the last Ice Age.
The underwater structure will not have changed that much during that short geological time.

The BIGGEST problem with all this is:
It doesn't match ANYTHING that Plato said about Atlantis (except perhaps that Atlantis wasn't in Greece.) Since Plato is the ONLY source for the story, in order for the information to be correct it MUST match Plato's account.
There's no large continent there made up of 10 rings of land masses, there's no large central city, and there's no evidence that a culture from Bronze Age Cuba ever ruled over the Mediterranean area.
If anything, the "channelers" are trying to cover up the original Plato story.
You seem to have a posted a map in before me. Question on your paragraph below the map. I don't get what you are saying. Can you explain a bit more. Why the "pre diluvial" comment?
I am familiar with the accepted timeframes for habitation in the region, and have to respond with the traditional, perhaps tired, but I think true explanation of coastal habitation. Tthe area of Cuba that is exposed now would have been a small area of mountain top in the Ice Age.
Which is not the case with Florida's Ice Age geology, hence artifacts are found there dating to 15, 000 B.C. You make the point that man was able to migrate over water to Australia.
Don't you find it anomolous that these Ice Age sea farers didn't figure out how to settle on land they could, from the looks of the maps we are referencing, ACTUALLY SEE?
