Hair is an insulator from heat and cold. So I don't understand this notion that long hair equals cold climates. In fact the woolly Mammoth couldn't live in an arctic or desert climate to tell you the truth, think about it for a while and see if you can discover why. Look at today's elephants and the amount of food they have to eat each day to survive. There is no woolly mammoth with scrape marks on it's tusks so it couldn't have been scraping away snow and ice to get to vegetation nor does the sandy desert of most of Egypt grow the amount of food that a mammoth would need to survive. This leaves two options, #1 the world was very different before the flood and much of the earth was tropical or #2 the mammoths died of starvation.

As far as the historical accuracy is concerned, who cares?!? I don't go to the cinema to be educated, I go to be entertained.

I love this movie, and here is why.
The movie screams, nobody knows for sure, and thats so true, sure we have Archaeologists with their 2600 yr claim for the pyramid building etc, but if you look deep enough, there is a lot of contradicting evidence, also suspicious behavior, take the Sumerian tablets for instance, why are they hidden away? even rumors they where destroyed or lost, the Dropa stones, why are they not being examined? in fact I heard not long ago they could no longer all be found.
Stories from Nepal, India, Tibet of the Nagas (reptilian beings who local history say went underground and were sealed in by locals), also reported in India anyhow that they traveled in Flying chariots, who is right? modern science, or stories passed from generation to generation, same story in different countries?.
If you search and dig deep you will see there is something missing, why are we not encouraged to talk about these things in main stream science? in fact like here on ATS, you become the target of ridicule in some respects.
So the movie IMO is simply plying artistic License to the story or the history whatever you believe, I don't know if Mammoth remains were ever found in North Africa, but I do know the area around Giza was not always desert, one time it was lush greenery, over time the desert has claimed most of it, In fact new discoveries are being made all the time indicating that even deep into the Sahara desert, there is evidence of Crocodiles, lions, hippo's, and a ton of other animals reliant on water and vegetation.
My best bet tells me, that Egypt was a lot friendlier place to live the further back in time you go.
IMO 10,000 yrs is easily inserted into any timeline for the region, even more if you try and put modern science out of your mind, if you take into account Sumeria as being a huge vast civilization, more advanced than everyone is led to believe, look at the Baghdad battery, a mystery from the same region.
If you look hard enough, not just the links I posted, search deeper, you will see yourselves, there are many things which do not make sense, also if you look at the Nagas link, does the illustration not look similar to the crowns of the Pharaohs?
Nice thread OP, so who is right? what is right? are you all certain what you have been told and taught is the truth? even in School and Univercity, you can only be taught what your teachers know, and IMO they have been lied to from the very start of their careers, but you cant blame them, its what they knew

The only thing that slightly bothers me is that alternative theories about ancient history are treated like they are only good as plots to fictionalized entertainment, I think that maybe sends the wrong message.
