Atlantis is not being addressed as of yet, but I DO NOT support the theory that Antarctica was Atlantis.
In regard to Schöner's maps, his 1515 and 1524 depictions of a southern continent were based on two separate maps, that is, assuming that his 1524
depiction was based on a source map as well and not merely randomly drawn.
Schöner's 1515 design relied on a copy of a 2,000-year-old Roman world map. If Schöner relied similarly on an ancient map for his 1524 design, then
he likely had access to an ancient map of Antarctica since the design most closely resembles that landmass and exceedingly so at that.
I have read alot of threads on this site OP and I am so grateful and relieved that you have provided us with some tantalising information for us to
I have always thought there is much more than meets the eye with ancient cartography and your thread has accelerated my passion to explore further. An
excellent piece of writing and I/we look forward to reading more from you in the future.
a splendid body of work which i will enjoy coming back to. many thanks doug fisher. up to now the only ancient map i studied regarding antartica was
the piri reis which is still considered dubious but interesting nontheless.

Thank you for such a well done, thought-provoking thread. Once I have time to fully analyze everything, I will leave a more detailed response. Just so
you know though, there's no need to be nervous about it--this far surpasses most work on ATS.
Out of pure curioisity, do you think the Earth is hollow?
Now assume for a moment that I have no knowledge of the mechanics of ice accumulation, or of any dating methods involved.
Is there any way that our scientists could be wrong about the age of the ice sheet? The dating methods are probably well established, but is there
some sort of fringe theory which could account for the ice appearing to 34 million years older than it actually is?
The most amazing first thread I've seen here (no offense to anyone else!)
You make a great case and build it with all available evidence and follow with your conclusions.
It;s work such as yours that keeps ATS at the top.
First class detective work sir
Very nicely done
