Now this is what I want to see more of on ATS, so a cave man whom is supposedly thick demonstrate's a very highly sophisticated level of intelligence that rivals or equals modern man but those whom have built there entire career of dismissing the very idea of an ancient localisation or pre modern human intelligent race with an advanced culture and whom pin there claim on modern thinking humans only being 160 to 200 thousand years old yet again deliberately deny or ignore this.
IT is all about money and reputation as this throws a very large Sabot in the work's for them.
S+F and if I could give more I would.
Too Welshreduk Iceland was probable still mainly submerged a million years ago, it is a new land mass that has been pushed up through vulcanism and may have been up and down a few times, it is essentially ocean bed from the mid Atlantic ridge that has been thrust up through magmatic activity like Hawaii but much larger, Greenland on the other hand is continental rock that used to be connected to northern Scotland way back along the path of continental drift so was definitely there at that time.

welcome to ATS.
1: If this rock was made by early man,which I doubt,it could have been made as art. Why would it be a map-globe?
2:The observational data required to make a map of that large an area requires mobility,teamwork,language,and a great memory-as well as great survival skills in different areas--plus luck.
3:The scale of said object area is so vast as to be worthless for navigation,or any other purpose.
Just my .03
That is why I tend to think that it is not man made,but random nature.
If it is man made-it was probably just used as decoration,and not a globe or map.The designs being again,random chance.

Greetings Hanslune. I think you missed my point. Aside from the fact that weathering and erosion do not act in ways that produce these kinds of shapes in a rock of seemingly uniform composition, the resemblance is evident to anyone with an accurate mental image of our planet.
Any geologist, archeologist, paleontologist, etc. will tell you that it is very easy to spot signs of carving in a rock. Regular geologic processes do not result in raised shapes such as this unless the raised area is of a different chemical composition than the surrounding rock (which would be visibly evident). Rocks may appear to be random in nature, but the science of mineralogy is one of precise, crystalline structures that build upon one another in predictable ways.

Reading into things too much? I'd say it's just a rock coincidentally looking a bit like the map of the world...

The reason you get raised areas is that it's a conglomerate rock with granule-sized clasts (a rock formed from tiny pieces of other rocks, for those of you who didn't suffer through Dr. L's geology class in college. en.wikipedia.org...)
