No problem about the correction. I threw my post together rather fast. I surprised myself by all the information I kept stumbling upon searching for
something I had trouble finding. The basic idea I was communicating was that there were traces of a plant that only grew in South America in Egyptian
mummies. That suggests some type of possible trade routes as a possibility in my opinion.
I've wondered what traces of any advanced civilization would be left after tens of thousands of years. I doubt much of our civilization would be
visible after 100,000 years without humans. If humans with our modern brain intellect have been around over 100,000 years, it might lead one to
believe there could have been a few advanced civilizations during that time that we do not know about even if their population was a lot smaller than
I did a search for an old thread mentioning a possible land bridge that some believe is over a million years old. It's possible the causes are
natural and as recent as about 12,000 years ago. The last post I read suggested a reasonable explanation for the bridge could have been related to a
sudden catastrophic rise in global sea levels of about 60 feet and there could have been huge waves associated with the global flooding.
thread mentioning this
I'm thinking many people would have described such an event as a global flood especially since many civilizations would have had their cities near the
Note: I'm speculating about the 60 foot rise in global sea levels. It was the number I read in the other thread. There was an extremely large lake
in northern North America that was blocked by continental ice. It was suddenly released sometime around 12,000 years ago I believe. That may not
have been enough water to raise sea levels 60 feet. The so called global flood source of water I've heard about came about from oceans of water deep
within the Earth getting released in a chain reaction along the mid atlantic ridges and other ridges across the globe. Anyway sea levels are I've
heard anywhere from 100 feet to 100 meters higher than they were during the last ice age. Many civilizations have ruins underwater.
This is the ancient bridge I was referring to. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't ancient.
