Howdy DangerDeath, yes rogues, loners, hermits, self-voyagers tend to keep a low profile but even they can be detected archaeology wise - of course
their philosophy wouldn't be recovered. You might get clues of this by art work (bone and stone and in some cases softer things if the soil is the
proper type) you might also detect them as being different from the matrix of whatever other civilization might be around.
Yoda411, underground civilzations. We discussed that recently here in another thread. Difficult for humans without a more technological society to
deal with psychological and physical problems caused by living underground. Alternatively evolved or non-human civilizations living under ground?
Possible but in my mind not of a high probably. However how would we detect such a society that lived in such heat at such depths?
Howdy Infinite, even nuclear weapons don't destroy everything, as proven by Hiroshima and Nagasaki - unless you go for ground bursts, and even then
deeply buried materials will survive-plus you'd need a whole lot of them. At present there is no evidence of nuclear war in ancient times, the
Mahabharata notwithstanding. Challenge, find that quote in the original source. There are similar types of quotes but that one seems more 'over
Howdy Dangerdeath, people without technological society tend to call things they see by names that of course don't exactly describe them. However we
don't know if they are describing natural events, dreams, imaginations or actual technology. But we stray off subject.
Howdy Punkinworks, yes a well reasoned comment. Yep advanced, ie equal to us, would leave an impressive trail of debris, a favorite of mine, cut gems,
virtually indestructable. Even when a city goes flat it leaves it traces in the soil, in the sediments of lakes and oceans and of course ice.
Howdy Merka, yes, how and where to look? There are a few independently wealthy archaeologists or those who have sources of funds that would allow for
such searches. Field survey can be done by just about anyone, however. I would note that fossil hunters and rock hounds haven't come up with anything
yet. ....but those types of amateurs would probably be the ones to come up with an anomaly first. As I walk around I tend to find arrow heads, since I
have developed an eye for that in doing field survey in the ME.
Howdy Ex_MislTech, thanks for your comments but Zecharia made his stuff up and we know that Sumer has been found. This thread is about finding unknown
Howdy Slayer69, yes were to look? Let us know what you come up with.
Howdy Mel1962, I would question the validity of your statement
especially by the archeology which refuses to think outside of the box
They do that all the time, what we know about the ancient world and early man all comes from them, "thinking outside the bos' created by religion.
Geologists and Archaeologists were among the leaders in the 19th century in overturning thousands of years of religious based thinking. They continue
to find new stuff all the time - quite out of the box I would think.
Imagine its starts raining 10,000 years ago and doesn't stop! The ice sheets melt within years and flood the great civilizations!
Considering we have icecores from 750,000 years ago I think your point of argument has, in fact, melted.
Great comments all
