Ahh Antarctica. It has and always will capture the imagination.
I'm fairly sure the nazi regime in all of it's insanity had considered the seclusive nature of Antarctica a good idea at the time. Good place to set
up a secret base.. send out fleets.. "Cor blimey, where's those flamin' Gerrys come from?" we'd all say as we picked sauerkraut out of our beans
It's big and cold and no one lives there unless they end up in a book about the last person to live on Antarctica, and it does seem that those
bearded blokes in boats did paint a picture of liveable land a pretty short time ago. When you're talking climactic change on a large scale, a few
hundred years is peanuts.. And if it did get covered in this much ice in such a short time, perhaps it hasn't stopped. We only really notice moments
throughout the day, not so much larger changes over long times. Good thing I like the cold weather!
If any decent enough civilisation, as suggested in this thread, had existed in a previous age of construction and science, they either never developed
the technology to take the Earth and mould it into machines or constructions that could define them, or even build things of any long lasting note. I
can see no reason that there would be no trace of a civilisation that was capable of 'wireless' anything. If you're making wireless things, you
have to start with something wired. Which needs to be built. By machines, which also need to be built..
No physical evidence, fossilised or tested..
Perhaps whatever wiped out a possibly fledgling group of aware curious humanoids that had developed language, culture, who were still using wooden
tools and forming societies.. maybe it was something so globally catastrophic that it decimated the very skin of the Earth, burying any scorched
remains under an eternity of dirt, which has now become the fertile landscapes we see..
But it wouldn't matter. It's all conjecture. What if.. We've got no evidence of either primitive nor advanced life on earth before us. And I
wonder, if in 500,000 years, if people dug deep enough and found remnants of our technology, would they ask themselves the same question? They may see
the tech we used and look at it in awe, a fascination... but if someone were to tell them all we did on it was take nude pics of our mates in the
shower, and tweet that the egg roll we just had gave them us hiccups.. who knows what they'd think.. "Hungry people in the world? Can't talk now,
selling kidney, must have iPhone5"..
Almost all of the found pyramids on the planet have suffered terrible erosion due to the elements, I'd expect any pyramids on Antarctica to be in
pretty good nick. And not made out of ice lol..
