All of the main continents are depicted on the stone and for the most part they are shown in their correct locations and their correct relative
sizes. How could anyone possibly know the geographic locations and sizes of all the worlds land masses that long ago?
Something else that took me awhile to track down on the internet that goes along with the map...
The causeway leading from the Great Pyramid runs about 15 degrees north of East. Allowing the location to represent 39 degrees latitude, the north
pole would fall east of Greenland. Teotihuacan in Mexico City has its main causeway aligning about 15 degrees east of north. This points to the same
location east of Greenland. Perhaps this was the north pole between 12,200 BC and 8100 BC. This would indicate that the north pole on the coast of
Alaska, creating the ancient equator line with 10 equally spaced sites, was either between 20,000 BC and 12,200 BC or was prior to 20,200 BC before
the beginning of this Great Cycle.
If you look, there is a circle at the top of the stone map that COULD be interpreted as say.. an 'ancient arctic circle', with the center apparently
in or near Alaska. COASTAL Alaska, even. . bear with me here.
'1' on the view of the Arctic Circle corresponds to P1 on the next picture.
That would be the position of the old North Pole (1) and its corresponding equator. (P1)
That matches up PRETTY freakin succinctly with the ancient stone map! I keep finding more stuff on this (sorry for the edits, but I have to share and
get all your guys informed feedback!).. Now continuing, the fainter line on the stone map representing the ancient equator, could the thicker line
represent the path of seeding civilizations? Notice that it heads from Peru/Ecuador NORTH to Mexico, and then arcs around (sea travel is shorter by
using the smaller areas of the globe vs traveling around its middle) to China, and then the line travels in a fairly straight path through the other
ancient areas of civilization, India, the Middle East, and Egypt.
I.. am at a loss. This is so mindblowing!
How very interesting. That's not to say someone couldn't have scratched a rude map of the Earth into a rock and left it out in the middle of nowhere..
but apparently this rock was with a horde of other finds, including the so-called Black Pyramid.
There are several threads on here discussing various oopart's, but I haven't seen this one mentioned yet. If it's already been posted in a thread on
ATS I apologize, but I searched stone maps and didn't come up with anything relative to THIS particular map.
A thread discussing various ooparts both debunked and still-in-question is here:
The link at the top of this post was linked from another page here:
I never know what to believe or not believe, so I choose to collect as much evidence as I can for either side... and keep collecting.
see that the stone map itself had been tested by anyone for an actual verification of the ancient date ascribed to it, but . . who knows?
Supposedly it was amongst a large cache of finds in a tunnel in Ecuador back in 1984, along with the Black Pyramid and all the other stuff. My focus
for THIS thread is primarily the map and the markings on it. Yes, it'd be very easy to say 'FAKE!!!!!' and move on, but.. what if it isn't!?
