After 40 million years, wouldn't the glaciers gouge out most its original surface and leaving a completely new surface?? *Just a thought.* Whatever was left would be in the ocean by now? Gawd! sometimes I have to read what I typed before posting. Sorry

I have been waiting a long time for ths news. After hearing of Mamoths found in Siberia, I have wondered for many years what might be under that ice, If they don't find a Muttaburasaurus or Leaellynasaura remains under there I'll be mghty suprised! Imagine finding some preserved tissue or skin! The place would have to be a goldmine. What an honor it must be to be on that team. New discoveries are pretty much guaranteed!

Maaaan, maybe they'll like totally find those awesome lost civilisations that might have been thriving during the time when Antartica wasn't covered in ice... like on those ancient maps that, that Turkish captain had. Or maybe they'll find that pyramid from that shocking movie...we ALL know which one im talking about!

Or maybe they'll find that pyramid from that shocking movie...we ALL know which one im talking about! Piri Reis was not a captain, he was a (Piri) admiral, he was also a vizier and it is as such that he was decapitated. There are also several other "portolans" (maps) (guide to ports translation). If you want to read something serious about those maps, you may consider reading Hap... [More]

Quite astonishing , if I do say so myself. Perhaps new fossils will be found indicating to new diferent species. And I, myself, am quite interested in the composition of the antarctic soil. What makes you think they should find fossils, when in Siberia, they found entire mammoth who still had grass and buttercups in their mouth.... If Hapgood was right in his theory of Earth Crust Displacement (and Einstein thought he was), then it's entire creatures that we should be expected to find... and maybe they were already but we wouldn't know about it, since science does not pass on information that ...

Witness the danger of mainstream thinking on the subject of dating: "For more than 25 million years, the fifth biggest continent on the planet has remained locked under a massive ice sheet that has concealed its secrets through out the whole of human history" That's nonsense. The Piri Re'is map proves beyond all doubt that this continent was not frozen, at least during a period where mankind was in existence and had topographic mapping abilities that were advanced enough to actually draw the landmass beneath the ice of said continent with almost total accuracy. The article goes on to quote the... [More]
