When I say theory I mean scientific theory especially when scientific evidence is introduced. I'll use the phrase scientific theory from now on.
The idea of an advanced civilization is unlikely. A civilization does many things including trade. Even if the so-called home center were inundated by
the Black sea or the rise in sea level after the ice melted from the Ice Age, we'd still expect to see evidence in places where they traded. The lack
of signs or pieces of material that indicate an advanced civilization in any place studied so far makes such a civilization rather unlikely.
Look at the trade routes in North America. You can find obsidian from Yellowstone, sea shells from Florida, mica from North Carolina, native silver
from Ontario, native copper from Michigan in the mounds of Ohio.
Despite decades of intense study from all over the world we are not finding any signs of an advanced civilization from ancient times.
