Precession is simply the wobble of the Earth on its axis. I see no point in making anything more of it (although the change in "North Stars" it causes is fascinating; for the ancient Egyptians, it was Thuban in Draco). But what happened 25999 years ago of significance? For humans, it was just another day of hunting, gathering, and trying to stay out of the way of saber-toothed tigers and mammoths. That would have been during the last Ice Age, too. The "Dreamtime" was a concept of the Native Australians, wasn't it?

The second way to determine untruth is if the word "Atlantis" is mentioned anywhere at all in the discussion.

I think I'm going to agree with Chango here on Atlantis being part of a serious conversation - unless it's dicussing how ancient people believed in such a place.
