Actually, the middle one didn't work for me. Don't know why, but it was the worst example anyway and not worth bothering with. The one in the frame was the best example and could have been interpreted as concentric circles, which was what I was trying to show.
Again, it doesn't have to be an either/or proposition. And what evidence do you have that the ancestors of today's Scots were responsible for these depictions? How do you know that someone else didn't do it and pass it down to the Scots? Particularly as Irish legend, IIRC, would have the today's Scots originating from Eochaid Allmuir (c.240 AD) and other immigrants, who had left their homeland when a bid for independence was severely crushed by their High-King.
Also, Doggerland wasn't the only area above sea level prior to 6100 BC. Northern, Western and Southern areas around England and Ireland were as well. Possibly even a bigger portion of the Faroe Islands and intermittent areas southwest from there.
So you'd rather talk to yourself and insult people for not being interested enough to post in your thread. You're not encouraging anything. But that's OK, I'm done here.
Well, for what it's worth, I was interested in those volcanic clouds, so I really love to see a photo of that.
And no, I have no evidence that the people living back then were the ancestors of the present-day Scots, but it wouldn't be much of a surprize to me if some mixing of genes took place. I just said 'Scots' as a name for the people living in what is now called Scotland. But ok, I was a bit too quick with my answer to you.
Still, I think it is kind of intriguing that most of these cup-and-circle marks can be found in Scotland, as though they were closest to whatever happened that made them carve these pictures onto stone.
Oh yeah, I do know Doggerland wasn't the only now submerged area above sea level; in a former post I talked about submerged megalithic looking structures found there, some kind of structure looking like a large stone table. According to me the people living on what was Doggerland were not separated in culture from the culture on the British Isles and Ireland or other nearby areas, and that is why I talk about finds in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Germany, Denmark and Scandinavia.
About the 'insult': is it an insult when you ask people to use their 'fcking brains'? I wasn't thinking of you when I said that, btw; you are obviously using your brains.
The reason I sometimes flare up is that I cannot understand that people interested in an unknown past - and we have many here - are not interested to take part in the discussion. Some admit that they don't know about anything concerning Doggerland, but are interested in what comes up here, and that's ok with me. But my idea is that most others do not participate because Doggerland appears not to be the place to look for when you believe is some ancient super-civilization, "Atlantis", and/or aliens. They have lots of imagination, but they seem unable to use that imagination in a useful way.
OK, so you are done here. Thanks for your contribution, Cormac.
