True but the issues raised are still worthy of discussion. Some of the archeological anomolies are very very interesting. This does not mean that creationism is correct though. If a dinosaur footprint and a human footprint are found in the same rock strata then this means they existed at the same time BUT this does NOT mean that "period" was several thousand years ago (to fit in with the creatinist calendar). It just means that our existing geological timeline needs rewriting. Unfortunately established theories support lots of careers and so change will not come without a fight.
Human beings throughout history have built settlements near the coast and river deltas. So most human settlements at the time of the last ice age will have been on the old coastline which is now under a considerable amount of water! DUH! No brainer....that's where the ice age archeology must take place. So the latest finds support the bleeding obvious.
I don't think it's Atlantis though! After all atlantis lies between the two great oceans and there is only one place on this planet surrounded by those two great oceans.........Antartica. Get a globe and turn it around and note where the two great oceans are!!!! Here's another trick to try. Mark on a globe the extent of the northern ice cap at the last ice age. put the centre of the ice sheet at the "new" north pole. Now take a look at where Antartica is....ooops!
