The Buache map, 1737

Phillipe Bauche was an 18th century Geographer in France and published yet another map of Antarctica in 1737, well before the continent was discovered. And again, it shows the land with no ice on it and accurate topography which was only mapped in 1958 when the first seismic survey was done. As shown on this map, it was discovered that under the existing mile of ice a waterway was found dividing Antarctica into two land-masses. .

Even orthodox geologists believe the last time this ice-free condition existed was millions of years ago. However it's absurd to consider that the knuckle dragging hominids which were scattered on Earth back then were capable of mapping at that time.

So how did this happen to be recorded in not one but at least four maps? Either our "known" history of human beings on this planet is wrong, our 'history' of our planet's development is wrong, there were highly developed civilizations on Earth that we are ignroing because it doesn't fit into the established "norm" or the ancient maps that predated these and were used as reference were done by alien cartographers or someone - drawing our planet from the air..

The simple explanation is that the 'interpretation' of the Buache Map is completely wrong. Here's a website that thoroughly examines the claims made by Graham Hancock and his reliance on the erroneous information championed by amatuer cartographer C.H.Hapgood;



Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan

"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler
