The Great Sea Kings of Mu(Asia/Pacific), Atlantis(Americas/Caribbean), and the Mycenaens of Greece(Miditerranean) were all devastated by a common
cataclysm. The Bronze Age flourished with these Great Empires. They traded routinely across the globe with their great fleet of ships.
And left no record/artifacts of their trade? How... unusual. Most trading civilizations are easily traceable.
But in one terrifying moment, they were lost under the sea that they dominated. Their governmental seats were lost by the sinking of the land
masses they sat on.
I've looked out the window and I'm pretty sure that Texas hasn't sunk, and niether has the rest of the United States. I think that the Pacific rim
civilizations are still there, and last I heard, Mycenea and the Euboea mountain are still above sea level:
Once regulation was lost by these controlling powers, the surviving fringes of their powers, that still remain above ground, fell to the hand
of chaos and disorder.
I'm trying very hard to be good and not start chanting, "one ring to rule them all...."
What caused these land masses to sink?
I'm dying to know since they're all above ground. Still. Including Texas.
It was obviously the result of an asteroid impacting in several places over the globe. The force impact into the ocean beds caused disruption
in the plate tectonics which caused an unsettling effect to the nearby geography.
A small asteroid entering the earth's atmosphere would probably break up and explode and do no damage. A Block O Cosmic Rock large enough to do the
amount of damage you hypothesize still isn't big enough to do any changes to the plate tectonics.
If you smacked the Earth with the Moon, then yes, you'd get disruption.
The impactors all over the globe, along with the erupting volcanoes, which were set off the tectonic disruption, produced a darkening
Hollywood has a LOT ot answer for....
So from the bibical account it can be summed up this way,(this is the first phase)
Mathew 24: And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you not be troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
yet. For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom(Mycenaens and Atlantians).
Hello? Reality check? Did you notice that Matt says "these things must come to pass" -- they haven't happened yet.
Matthew was written in 70AD or thereabouts. netministries.org...
This was hardly the Dark Ages of any account or the end of the Dark Ages. Egypt depended on lots and lots of sunlight and they'd have written if
something happened to the sun. ("Dear Ra. Somebody's been messing around with the Sun. Please have Bast and Horus and Sekhmet go retrieve it.
There were a lot of civilizations around the world, they were literate, they left written records... some of which we can easily read.Nobody mentions
continents going missing, trading partners going missing, devastation, huge fireballs in the sky (Mycenea... the middle of Greece. You'd think the
flourishing Roman civilization mighta noticed that one of their main areas went missing. ("FLAVIUS! WHAT DID YOU DO WITH MYCENEA??? HOW MANY TIMES
HAVE I TOLD YOU TO PUT YOUR CONTINENTS BACK AFTER YOU PLAY WITH THEM???!!!")
When you therefore see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whose readeth, let him
understand(the Roman armies coming near Jerusalem to overthrow it.)
Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains( the converted Jews to Christianity.)
So you're saying that Matthew says when the Jews see the Romans coming they should immediately convert to Christianity? Really? Given the bad rap
that the Early Christians had and the relatively good reputation that the Jews had?
Y'know, I think the advice probably means what it says... "if some goober whacks Jerusalem, everyone in Judea better head for the hills and don't
let them catch you."
Immediately, after the tribulation of those days(fleeing out of Judea) shall the sun be darkened, and the moon not give her light, and the
stars shall fall from heaven(the asteroids), and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
Erf. Stars aren't asteroids. Asteroids aren't stars. And the Temple was destroyed in the Jewish-Roman war of 66-70 AD
when writing was common and wide areas of the world were civilized.
You'd think they'd notice something little like a lot of ash from the darkened skies falling down on them for many days. Furthermore, you'd expect
to find the layer of ash all over the world (as it is with the meteorite that helped wipe out the dinosaurs.)
There's no ash. You can trot out into your backyard and dig and confirm this (you'll need a hole about 6 feet deep, depending where you live.)
Your source, whoever it is, is making a real ash of themselves.
And the Thirteen gods were seized by the Nine gods. And a fiery rain fell, and ashes fell, and rocks and trees fell down. And the Thirteen gods
were seized and their heads were cut off, and their faces were slapped, and they were spat out, and weights were placed upon their
Jolly intriging, given that originally there were three creator gods in Mayan mythology, followed by seven creator gods and then thirteen creator
gods. Nine isn't a particularly sacred number to the Mayans, something that the Source-Who-Is-Making-An-Ash-Of-Themselves doesn't know.
And their Great Serpent was ravished from the heavens, together with the rattles of its tail and also with their quetzal feathers...
And their skin and pieces of their bones fell here upon the earth. And then their heart hid itself, because the Thirteen gods did not wish to leave
their heart and seed.
And they were buried on the sandy shores, in sea-waves. And then, in one watery blow, came the waters. And when the Great Serpent was ravished, the
sky fell down and the dry land sank. Then Four gods, the Four Bacab, destroyed everything...
Ah, I love the smell of Mixed Metaphors in the morning.
Quezalcoatl was Aztec: weber.ucsd.edu...
The Bacab, the Sons of the Jaguar, are Mayan
It so happens that the ruins recently found in the depths of the Cuban waters (down 2200ft) have two interesting features inscribed upon them.
One is mentioned as being crossed shape ovals and the other is hyroglyphics that look Greek but not Greek. Were the Mycenaens of the Mediterranean and
the Atlantians of the Americas keeping the ties of communication open?
Pictures? Sources? Or is this just something that came from some nutty website?
The hyroglyphs are not made public yet.
Oh, I'll bet they aren't! You see, Greeks never wrote in hieroglyphics and by the time of this suggested disaster, the Egyptians were writing in
coptic script. "Greek hieroglyphics", indeed....
Sources of many details with my personal twist are as follows:
King James Bible
Andrew Collins-Gateway to Atlantis
Earthfiles.com by Linda Moulton Howe
Might I instead recommend Wikipedia and the wealth of resources mentioned in this web page: www.angelfire.com...
