Problem.  From your link:


Granite, being intrusive, forms only at great depths under the surface, due to the need for pressure to create the granite.

Otherwise, it would be basalt (IIRC.)

Granite never forms "on dry land," taking the meaning of "dry land" in the usual sense.

basalt was mentioned on the phys.org link i seem to remember seeing .... get with the program Mr HArte .... :lol:

How about you (and others) getting with the program?

The linked source claimed the granite must have formed on "dry land."

Total crap.

Why is it necessary that I point this out?  You should have known this simple fact.

Maybe you are all missing the main point.

Atlantis or not, this has to be more evidence of civilisation pre-dating the sacrosant 3000 - 4000BC written into all the school text books.

What civilization are you inferring from a slab of granite???

Actually no, since the article says both "several tens of million years ago" and "No man-made structures have been found there".  Which invalidates your claim of it being "more evidence of civilisation pre-dating the sacrosant 3000 - 4000BC".

cormac

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

The Granitatians, of course.

— which normally forms only on dry land —

Ahh...not exactly.

More accurately, the formation of granite requires an absence of water.  If I recall my one geology class, It doesn't have to be on land, and it usually isn't.  The bolus of magma that become granite usually cools over thousands of years underground, and is later pushed up towards the surface.

They themselves state that no man-made structures have been found there. Then??? On what basis do they bring the Atlantis bogey into this???

They don't, actually.  The Japanese team denied the Atlantis connection in typical excessively polite Japanese fashion (Their equivalent of "No, you freaking idiot").  It was the unnamed, unsourced, Brazilian official (of some kind), which threw in the malarkey about the legendary Atlantis.

Zoser, here's thread about a sunken (micro-)continent of 3 times the size of Japan:

http://www.unexplain...opic=156406&hl=

Most important line in the first post:

"Don't worry, it's nothing but science fiction."

But that continent did exist, in the south of the Indian Ocean.

Oh, and here a post concerning my fantasy (Kerguelen/ants):

We may be dealing with pre or older Atlantiss. That is a possability that should be looked into.

But it's far to ancient to have anything to do with us humans or our distant ancestors who by then were still swinging from tree to tree.

EDIT:

Make that 'jumping from branch to branch'.
