Hello digipulse,

There is not a lot more that I can offer at this time. There are tangential findings that I will be detailing in my book—should it ever materialize—which will introduce and analyze a few more ancient maps pertaining to Antarctica.

On a separate note, I do intend on piecing together an in-depth post on Atlantis, but other priorities have recently cropped up, so it may be a bit further out than I initially expected.

Thanks for the bump soficrow.

-Doug

POSSIBLE NEWS ITEM:

Or just confusion.

So I checked up on the Gamburtsev range and found this little stunner from just a few days ago:

Antarctica Ice Sheet Only 1.4 Million Years Old, Not 34 Million


"Antarctica's ice sheet formed about 32-million years ago but [Tom Jordan of BAS] said that experts now believed the oldest ice was only 1.4-million years old."
LINK


Anyone know anything about this claim? Is it possible that BAS means that the ice in that particular area dates back only 1.4 million years because much of the ice there is thawed and refrozen-ice?


The findings, published in the journal Science, confound a traditional view that ice sheets are almost solely formed by snow that lands on top, gets compressed into ice and flows slowly towards the oceans because of gravity.

'We usually think of ice sheets like cakes - one layer at a time added from the top. This is like someone injected a layer of frosting at the bottom - a really thick layer,' Robin Bell, lead author at Columbia University in New York, said.

The scientists said that about 24 per cent of the ice in an area around Dome A, a 13,800ft high plateau the size of California that forms the top of East Antarctica, was formed by re-frozen ice.

'In some places up to half the ice thickness has been added from below,' they wrote of ice above the invisible Gamburtsev Mountain range.


Jordan's statement, or misstatement, is clearly made in general reference to the entire ice sheet. Unless it was quoted out of context. Journalists don't do that. Do they?

The age of the Antarctic ice sheet has dropped by millions in the past, but this would be a phenomenal drop percentage wise. Are we just one find away from the ice sheets being dated in thousands of years?

-Doug


UPDATE:

I received a reply from BAS and they have confirmed that they still maintain the 32-million-year timeframe. As I partially suspected, the journalist appears to have made an incorrect assumption and erroneously drew contrasts between the two dates:


"Antarctica's ice sheet formed about 32million years ago but Jordan said that experts NOW believed the oldest ice was only 1.4million years old."


Correct statement should perhaps have been:


Antarctica's ice sheet formed about 32million years ago and Jordan said that experts believed the oldest ice was only 1.4million years old.


To clarify, the oldest dating of the ice via an ice core is 800,000 years. Theoretically, the oldest remaining ice is 1.4 million years based on the current rate of ice flow.

The ice sheet, on the other hand, is believed to have originated 32 mya with more than 30 million years of ice having been shed from the sheet as it flows out beyond the continent and cleaves free.

According to Tom Jordan's response, the 32 million figure has been established by the following:


"Firstly glacial drop stones found far out in the ocean, which can only have been carried by icebergs. These are dated using the micro-fossils found with them.

Secondly there is a change in the isotopic composition of the oceans recorded in fossil shells, indicating lots of water was locked away in an ice sheet.

Thirdly there was a global drop in sea level, related to storage of a large volume of ice on the continents."

Oh my God (or any God's for that matter)...this is such an interesting read that I doubt i will be doing much else but read this for the next few days. S&F for all the hard work and effort you put in to make this available to us.

Thanks Doug

This is my 2nd favorite forum on this site. Very close to my first.

This is probably one of the most well executed and put together threads I've seen on here. I've only read the first 2 pages and I'm already hooked
.

Thank you for this. Now, back to reading.

Thanks very much. It is extremely gratifying to find a forum that is highly and positively receptive to these unconventional concepts. I can only hope that my next submission is similarly engaging and received half as well.

Thanks again,
Doug

Eureka,this is why there are abduction events like mine,so glad I found this thread.
Seek high ground,ignore media,take food for 6mth minimum and water for same,google "tsunami shelter crop circle message",these are regular earth changes governments and major religons know of and withhold from us all,I dreamt many of the things I have read on ATS,I have already found many of these things on my own long ago,humanity will not perish just many of us ,some will be saved to reseed earth,there will be pockets around the world in high altitude areas,major governments are all already prepared but most of these facilities will not make it.

Keep this thread rolling,this is the real cheese.

The bible is a history book that has been bastardised,if you reverse extrapolate it you will find all the info you require,take a highlighter and cross out every word that contains an emotional connotation or an opinion,keep only the words that contain no human context therefore no human changes or influences.

Whoever said that crustal displacement causes massive amounts of water to vaporise is a GENIUS.

This is the only way it could rain for forty days and forty nights.


Noahs ark when replicated using measurements and design specifics from the history book we call the bible---is truly a specially designed tsunami proof vessel,or ease up on the tsunami and say water inundation because a forty day constant rain would be slower than a tsunami.

Let any negative emotions go because there will be no one to blame for the lack of information we are suffering from right now.

Prepare ,and keep the faith in humanities ability to survive and remember that we are all connected so it matters not who survives because through them we all survive.

Only place to look that isnt under water would be under snow,if you believe the words of history which had no agenda to make them lie as we have today then you are like me,you know history isnt lieing you also know that we are constantly lied to today,therefore under water or under snow ,one or the other,but definately there.Where is the one place the entire world considers off limits?Yes there is and it is Antarctica.Hint hint.

I just wanted to say thanks for the bump
and, on a serious note, thanks also for the positive feedback.


I also wish to thank greeneyedleo for being extremely cordial and supportive throughout the process as the staff performed a necessary review of the content.

Thanks guys,
Doug

Geez man you make some awesome threads! I really liked the the Atlantis thread also.

I'm friending to keep track of your stuff
