When the ice melted (wall) the to different worlds and possibly different human species met for the first time in tens of thousands of years. Could this be the giants (gods) of the bible, greek and other myth? Was they smarter than us, had they better technology, and was stronger than us. Maybe, the neanderthals was.. Did they took control and ruled us for a period?
Storegga is a area beneth the north sea that have caused the largest zunamies known too man. It is documented that it has caused at least 5 huge zunamies/floods during the last 30.000 years. Could one of these zunamies have killed most of the gods and their cities? And the reason we cant find traces of them is tjat the sea has rised about 50 meters in this area.
Was we lucky, was there others that deserved to rule this earth, but just got unlucky by a zunami and bad timing and afterwards deception.. A possible a inner revolt, were several of the gods saw an oppotunity to increase their own power and wealth and went against their own ( like the bible and greeks tell us). Two of poseidons own sons revoltet against him (greek) with the help of us human slaves. We hunted them down and killed every last one of them. They were not practical as slaves and a threat to all humanity.
Was the gods good or evil?
Difficult to say.. They were probably much like us. Both. Most were probably good people, some were bad. Some treated us bad. We know stories that they hunted for us (the free ones), they ate us over the camp fire, they stole and raped our women and took them as sexslaves (neanderthals finds..) and generally used us as slaves.
We know that along the trading and settling routes of the north sea people during history is two places that stand out. One is caucasus and the area north, which is the single most important area in the world strategelicy if you want to rule the world. This area controlled two of the three north sea searoutes to the mediterian. The last one went around and in from the west. And the the first island from the west in the mediterian are strategicaly important as bases. Caucasus also controlled the tradingroutes to kina, indus valley, sumer and egypt from north sea point of view. The north sea also had the only known ancient trading route to the americas. A north sea based coast culture could easily take over the world location wise.
In stoneage, north sea also ruled over the largest easy acessable storable protein food source in the world. Before farming and domesticated animals this was the only place in the world where foods for millions could just be gathered in small geographical areas. The most important by far is the now sunken island rÝst, lofoten off norway, where the cod every year comes to lay eggs. A large storable foodsource is a must if a large civilsation like culture were to evolve with large cities.
