Early man travelled the high seas

Homo erectus may have travelled across the world's oceans as early as 130,000 years ago.

This idea is based on the discovery of stone tools on the island of Crete that couldn't have got there without seafaring capabilities. Until now early ocean crossings were thought to have only happened within the last 30,000 years.

"A team of researchers that included an N. C."

There is a big problem with the unglaciated Antarctica shown on these ancient maps. The continent has rotated 180 degrees from its present position. According to some of the theories of continental drift the continent was last in that position hundrreds of millions of years. So somebody or something mapped this contient that many years ago. That is something Hapgood or even Eric Von Danien dared not explore. Look at the Orontius Finaeus Map of 1531. The question I have is where are the original source maps that he and Mercator were copying from? Hapgood thinks they are in the Vatican Library. ... [More]

One of those strange but true facts. But if they did, why such a spotty record? Well, because we are periodically invaded by a magnetic cloud (that infamous blue star is a neutron bitsy) that first compresses as it incurrs, then when it passes the planetary body, the body expands, its molecular bonds stretch out and are exposed to cosmic rays in a huge way. Science should have been tieing all this together but all we got was black holes and gravity waves. Like the Tshirt that says Mom and Dad went to Florida and all I got was this lousy Tshirt.

Somebody or something mapped an unglaciated Antarctica millionsof years ago. Maybe they were not human, but had great intelligence to map an entire continent. The land forms under the ice was mapped in the 1950s using radar. The Oronteus Finaeus Map of 1531 shows rivers flowing into the ocean. Those rivers are now glaciers. See Hapgood, pp91-92. There is no doubt that the scientists came up with the continental drift theory by looking at these ancient maps which actually show the continents in different positions from today.

Hapgood debunked? Not according to the geologists who are studying these acient maps of an unglaciated antarctica in order to study global warmings. See new analysis hints ancient explorers mapped antarctic New York Times goog. I know in the past you claim that this 1984 aricle is out of date. THEN WHY DIDN'T THIS CRACKPOT PROFESSOR FROM WISCONSIN MENTION AND ATTACK IT IN HIS ARTICLE? And no geologist has ever attacked this NY Times article

Dr. Weihaupt is a crackpot because he tries to prove that Antactica on these maps is really Australia and his methology comes from the mind of a lunatic. NOtice the crackpot does not refer to the letter from Captain Burroughs of the USAF, 8th Reconnaissance Technical Squadron (SAC) to Hapgood, p.244. In this letter, the captain agrees with Hagood on all of his conclusions about Antartica and these ancient maps. Why didn't the crackpot refer to this letter? Anyway as the geologist says that the Antacrica on these maps is the continent and not Australia. He also says that somebody mapped the con... [More]
