My comment isn't about Atlantis, but about "The Flood" that people are touching on.


Antonia Zamora has posted a video on Youtube, I know I know, unknown person on Youtube with a theory... I'm not saying believe him, but his hypothesis is interesting.

He suggests that the Younger Dryas Cooling event was caused by an impact event in the Saginaw, Michigan area. The area was still covered by an ice sheet, but was also holding back a glacial melt water lake. In the process of impact, the glacial lake was released and much of the ice was converted to water, causing rising sea levels. In addition, tremendous amounts of water ice was ejected into the atmosphere which then returned to earth more slowly as worldwide rain.

Rising water along with lots of rain, around 12800 years ago, Biblical-like, but much earlier than the Biblical timeline. Still, one could imagine such a global cataclysm impacting people worldwide causing many cultures to develop great flood myths, so powerful, that they were carried forward for millennia in their oral traditions.

The theory needs more proof, but it is interesting. Plus, don't knock oral traditions. It wasn't that long ago that the Viking Sagas of Leif Ericsson were considered myth not history.

I refuse to watch you tube, but if a meteor caused the sudden melting of the one mile thick ice sheet covering all of Michigan and it drained suddenly into the Atlantic, sea level wouldn't have risen more than a couple feet. Compare the area covered by the whole ice sheet and then the area of Michigan to the area of the oceans.

Another thing to consider about "The Flood" is that to ancient people "the whole world" was only about 30 miles across-- the extent of their travels on foot in a lifetime. For that matter, a devastating flood may only have been a couple inches deep-- enough to prevent planting next year's crop- a real calamity.

It isn't Atlantis. As the article says, it is a well-known fact that Southern Spain was a center of civilization with native, Phoenician, Nuragic, and Greek elements and connections.

Atlantis was a place that was 10,000 years old, centered on a continent bigger than African and Asia togehter, beyond the pillars of Hercules, filled with elephants, went to war with Athens, etc. In other words, it did not exist.

Exactly, all one has to do is look at Goblecki Tepe for proof of more advanced civilizations having been wiped out.. There are 100’s of structures still undiscovered in this location.
