Huge Mountain Range Should Not Be There

An Antarctic mountain range that rivals the Alps in elevation will be probed this month by an expedition of scientists using airborne radar and other Information Age tools to virtually "peel away" more than 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of ice covering the peaks.

One of the mysteries of the mountain range is that current evidence suggests that it "shouldn't be there" at all.

The researchers hope to find answers there to some basic questions about the nature of the southernmost continent, including the massive East Antarctic Ice Sheet. For instance, it is unclear how Antarctica came to be ice-covered in the first place and whether that process began millions of years ago in the enigmatic Gamburtsev Mountain range.

Working every day at extreme altitudes, in 24 hours of sunlight and at temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius, the researchers of the Antarctica's Gamburtsev Province (AGAP) team hope to learn whether the Gamburtsevs were born of tectonic activity in Antarctica or date from a period millions of years ago, when Antarctica was the center of an enormous supercontinent located at far lower latitudes.

Robin Bell of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in New York, who shares the leadership of the U.S. science effort, said AGAP will help scientists understand one of Antarctica's last major mysteries.

"Because the heart of East Antarctica is so difficult to get to, we know very little about it," she said. "We think also that there's a strong possibility that the mountains are the birthplace of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

It strikes me as arrogant to say the mountains shouldn't be there.

It should be, "Our current theories can't explain why they are there"

It seems to me that they meant "shouldn't be there according to our information" by "shouldn't be there".

Very interesting find, OP. It looks like there are more unknowns about Antarctica than knowns.

This is really extremely interesting in that in 1934 when Edgar Cayce gave a reading at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. Mitchell Hastings, which is called (and is somewhat famous among those who really appreciate his readings) 3976-15, he stated this:

As to the changes physical again: The earth will be broken
up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of
Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will
be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear
off the east coast of America. There will be the upheavals
in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the
eruption of volcanos in the Torrid areas
, and there will be
shifting then of the poles - so that where there has been
those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more
tropical, and moss and fern will grow. And these will begin
in those periods in '58 to '98, when these will be proclaimed
as the periods when His light will be seen again in the
clouds. As to times, as to seasons, as to places, ALONE is
it given to those who have named the name - and who bear the
mark of those of His calling and His election in their
bodies. To them it shall be given.

The emphasis is mine.

While I've never been a believer at all in prophecies OR channelrs, I do find the Science of matching global events that are truly happening to those that were "channeled" many years ago!

Many argue that the "shifting" he meant is that of a geomagnetic pole shift, while others will argue that he meant axial pole shift. Arguably, an axial pole shift would be far more horrific than a geomagnetic shift or reversal, however If he could be right on EITHER count, it would be interesting to say the least.

Doubtless the mountain range is the leftover tailings of the excavation of the hollow earth.

Voila! Obviously none of these geologists are members of ATS, or they'd have known that.

In related news an unnamed Antarctic mountain range stated that detractors who do not believe in it's existence should "think again suckas because we rulez da world!"
