Read towards the bottom where it talk about increased uranium deposits in coral and irregularities in C-14 dating.
Read the whole thing, but beware of the liberal date assinged to Mahabharata. It is actually believed that the vedic epics were writtin in the middle
of the first millenium BC.
I've even found articles by skeptics who do not dispute the existence of these sites, nor do they present any evidence of an asteroid (such as
irridium at the site or a crater), just as they also do not present any evidence of uranium deposits at the sites.
I can't tell you who nuked who, nor can i prove that it even involved humans, but the evidence DOES exist, and who knows how much more remains under
sea since the deluge.
I am not saying that ancient man was technologically superior to us. I'm saying he knew got a single physical equation from somewhere- the theory of
everything. Man knew all physics before he developed metallurgy, construction, government, economics, etc. He may have known a few very simple, non
technological tricks based on physics.
The following is not likely to be exactly true, but an example of the sort of scenario i envision (simple techniques producing an illusion of high
technology because of high knowledge):
Man encounters aliens, and they want to mine Earth, and have man do the work. Man calls the union hall and says "hey boss, these guys want me to lift
50 tons of ore by myself, tell em it aint in the contract". The aliens show us how easy it is, teaching us how extremely simple tricks (which aren't
obvious to us because they play on the 10 dimensional properties of matter and energy, rather than just the 3D ones that we are limited to
understanding.) We learn that by performing some simple action we are setting an invisible process in motion in thsoe dimensions where we can not
observe the consequences, and that the process in turn affects the observable world in the way we want.
Imagine that you lived on a sheet of paper- you are 2D. You are trying to move a drawing of a huge stone block towards the top of the paper, but it
wont slide. Now I lean down from the incomprehensible world beyond (a different point in the 3rd dimension- above the paper- which you can not
percieve) and I tell you to go get a drawing of a big rubber sheet and rub it up against the sides of your drawing of a block, because i know you're
going to charge the block, and it's going to be attracted to objects up here in the 3rd dimension. You obey, and the block tries to jump up into the
third dimension, but doesn't quite have what it takes to make it, so it comes crashing dwon again father up the paper. You rinse and repeat until the
block is where you want, then you do the same process more gently, getting it to just hover as you guide it into place.
Now spend a few hours pondering a 4th or 5th dimension and get back to me later
PS- The sources of the Piri Reis map used aerial survey and spheric trigonometry before 4000BC! *repeats it over and over again until he's blue in
