On some of the old maps of the sixth continent shows a partially ice-free, but on the other — completely free. In this map creators claim that they were guided by drawing even more ancient samples.
Define the contours of the hidden under the ice of the coastline and the surface of Antarctica was possible only in the mid-twentieth century with the help of special equipment. And what happened? Similarly portrayed outlines of continents and its relief medieval cartographers! According to scientists, partially ice-free Antarctica was about 6000 years ago, and completely free — nearly 15,000 years ago.
Who is engaged in surveying and mapping at a time when the Earth, according to the modern view, there was a civilized society?
The hypothesis of the Italian Admiral
In 1974 in Italy, the book "Civilization under the ice," the retired admiral Flavio Barbieri. Based on the analysis of archaeological finds, ancient documents, legends, myths and traditions of ancient peoples and their scientific and technical knowledge the author came to the conclusion paradoxical.
He believes that all the agricultural civilizations appeared almost simultaneously in different parts of the world: in Central and South America, Mesopotamia, Central Africa, East China, South-East Asia. And this despite the fact that no contact between these regions at the time was not. The conclusion is that in the past there was a kind of super-civilization, which became the source of all later civilizations in the world.
Where and when this super-civilization might arise?
It is known that in the period from 50 to 12 thousand years ago, ice up to three kilometers covered northeastern North America until the middle of the Great Plains in the west and to the latitude of New York City in the south. In northern Europe, the solid ice cover reached the latitude of London and Berlin. In this case, the sea level was below the present by more than 100 meters.
It is believed that such an extension of ice masses resulted from the general cooling on Earth. In geology, this period is called the Pleistocene. Then the whole territory of Siberia, until the coast of the Arctic Ocean and Alaska, was free of ice, and it lived in a variety of different animals — mammoths, reindeer, woolly rhinoceroses, cave bears and many others. Hence, the climate of Siberia was then quite soft.
In the same period in the Southern Hemisphere in Australia and New Zealand piled glaciers, but in much of Antarctica, which is adjacent to the Atlantic coast, the ice was absent, and the climate in this part of the continent was moderate. Said can be explained only by the fact that if the Earth's axis is inclined less than now, and the geographic pole takes a different position.
The first inhabitants of the Americas
With such a "dislocation" stable air currents — the trade winds — blowing in the southern hemisphere in the direction of South America. In this case, there had to be ocean current, which is from the south-east coast of Asia went through the Indian Ocean, bordering the South Africa, reached South America, came through in the Drake Passage between Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica and directed further along its western shore, lost in the Pacific Ocean. During the rush to the side of Antarctica. Sin was not to use it. Paleolithic peoples who inhabited the Indonesian region, over 50 thousand years ago could make at least a primitive craft. In the same period there was a nearby settlement of Australia. Study of ancient human skulls to be at least 12,000 years old, found in South America, have shown that the first inhabitants of the region belong to the same ethnic group as the Australian aborigines.
These findings contradict the classical concept of the settlement of the Americas through Beringia — an area of land which burst in the ancient Bering Strait between Chukotka and Alaska.
During those 40 thousand years that have passed since the construction of the first Paleolithic tools of navigation and the end of the Pleistocene, a group of people from the Asian and South American coasts, as well as from South India and South Africa, may have occurred off the coast of Antarctica. This happened when they got to the already mentioned equatorial current.
Caught in a rather favorable climate, they engaged in growing crops, seeds brought with them. Following this, began to create new tools and new housing types, the first steps on the path of technological civilization. And when the people learned to build big Antarctica seaworthy vessels that can withstand ocean disaster, the voyage to the shores of other lands. It is very likely that the result has been the creation of such voyages coastal colonies, at least in South America. From these settlements would remain some traces, but the fact is that the sea level was then below the current about 130 meters, so look for these signs need at great depths. As for the villages and cities that existed on the Antarctic continent, they are all buried in the ice cover and blown into the sea, as from the end of the Pleistocene glaciation gradually spread throughout Antarctica. The cause was a global catastrophe.
Earth asteroid launched
About 12 500 years ago, fell to the ground a large asteroid (or comet), so that the situation has changed the geographic poles of the planet. This is confirmed, in particular, finds in northern Siberia corpses frozen mammoths preserved in the stomach which undigested food. Hence, they died almost instantly because of the sudden and abrupt cooling. But permafrost to step on the land gradually over thousands of years.
According to Alexander Tolmana the University of Vienna and Victor Club of Oxford University, a cataclysm occurred between 10,000 and 9600 years BC, when the pieces hit the Earth a huge comet.
In Antarctica, which occupies a central position in the earth's ocean mass, the sea level would rise so that all cities were under water. If any of the residents and alive, he died in the snow, which lasted several months.
This is Atlantis?
Saved only those who were at that time in the sea. Part explorers reached the coast of South America, Africa and Asia. There they mixed with the remnants of the disaster locals, initiating the formation of various nations, nationalities and peoples. They taught the local people to agriculture, which was cultivated by his lost homeland.
So global disaster and the associated "The Flood" helped spread the civilization that originally evolved on six continents. At the same time laid the foundation for further progress of mankind in different corners of the globe.
Pundits still can not clearly explain why the Step Pyramid of Djoser Egyptian pharaoh who ruled XXVIII century BC, so similar to the stepped pyramids (ziggurats), built by the Sumerians in about the same period in ancient Mesopotamia. And why are the pyramids of the Aztecs and the Incas — the creators of the first civilizations in the history of the American continent — are a kind of stylized copies of the above-mentioned structures?
Apparently, this historical fact, along with the mysterious ancient maps of Antarctica, the myths and legends of the Deluge, of the gods of mankind, mentors can serve as a powerful argument in favor of the hypothesis Flavio Barbieri. Its legitimacy is confirmed by the fact that almost 20 years after Barbieri, in 1995, very similar ideas were expressed by the American scholar Graham Hancock in his book "Traces of gods" and couple of Canadian scientists — Rand and Rose Flem-Amx — in the book "The End of Atlantis ".
