It fits the profile of Atlantis a lot better than Crete.

You really should read that thread I linked to.

Doggerland wasn't an island like Atlantis, but after the tsunami only an island, "Dogger Island", remained (the future Dogger Bank). Still quite large back then (about the size of Ireland), but it kept slowly and steadily sinking.

It would have been more an 'Island of the Dead' (like many traditions around the North Sea hint at), a land of fog and mist (cold and warm sea currents meeting),  a Niflheim, a 'Hell'.

I also assumed the Strait of Dover was much narrower 8000 years ago, and the chalk rocks of Dover and Calais (but much closer to eachother) may have been the origin of the true 'Pillars of Hercules'.

Some nice pics I created:

And I think many of you will like this video I posted in that thread:

Great sum Abramelin.
I notice you think that OLB is hoax. So far in my research (which started after you told me about it last month) I didnt find anything that could it be hoax except lingustic debate.
When do think it was created?

The summary was from before the OLB thread even started, and I just copied and pasted it here.

The linguistic debate - even though it's not really my thing - it IS important.

I will try to make an analogy: suppose they find an 'ancient' Egyptian papyrus about some long lost civilization of thousands of years before pharaonic times.

But the language used appears to be very close to modern Coptic. However,  the papayrus is written in hieroglyphs, but 'more primitive' ones.

What would you think?

.==

I think the OLB was created in the 19th century, using all the available Latin, Greek and Frisian sources (= legends. myths and ancient accounts). It was put on paper using an 'Old 'Frisianized' form of 19th century Dutch.

I can read that '2600 years' old language. As soon as I got accostumed to the language, I could translate the text. And all I needed was my knowledge of Medieval Dutch I learned in highschool, and occasionally with the help of an Old Frisian dictionary (>> Old Frisian is the Frisian used in the 13th century, medieval times).


The syntax used in the Oera Linda Book (OLB) is modern.

I didnt research enough to even start debate. Its interesting for sure. Soon I will be ready to join you in  thread about it.
