Hello and thanks pryed-eyed-one.

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 hope this answers your questions.

-Doug

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 study.

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.

Thank you.

Wow! Fantastic work. I've been lurking on ATS for around 3 years and this is the most well put together thread I've seen to date, well worthy of my own first post
A very enjoyable read! Thank you

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?

Fascinating. This is why I come to ATS, to read incredible posts like these.

An area seldom covered and most deffinatly never covered in depth like this, your first thread. S&F although they seem vastly underated awards for the work and nerves you have put in.

I, like many will probably need to read it a couple of times to better grasp the information, although your passion for this thread shines through.

Respects to you.

S+F, very nice presentation.

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?

Doug,

Thank you very much for what proved to be an absolutely fascinating read and a really well put together thread.

You mentioned that this was your first thread here and that you were a bit nervous. It is my hope that we'll see more threads from you on ATS in the future.

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

Brilliant read, only read a little.
It would be good to see some debate now on the topic.
It is one of the best constructed threads I have seen, and for that brilliant. 10/10 my friend.

But let the debate begin,,,,,,
