Atlantis: Where science began

i am quite sure that most of you are aware of Dr. Graham Hancock's work on ancient maps, his book was called fingerprints of the gods. In his book he stated that maps were created from a higly advanced culture that existed 10,000 years ago when antartica was not the frozen wasteland it now is. It is possible that ancient knowledge is burried somewhere on earth and that clues have been left for us to find. I am already completing the first clue: assigning constellation as cities on ancient earth: for example Orion = Egypt Sagitarius = Mayan, these constellation are reflected by archetecture of ancient man and mind, the first clue will lead to the second and I will report when i have found it.

I don't have a question mark key, the parrot took it again.I think he may have chewed it up this time.
Anubis comes up with some good stuff.

LOL, here and there, I have been a little sick for the last couple of week and also when working just do not seem to get the time to be here. So you will see me around in fits and starts for a while.
I think you may have to get a stronger keyboard soon. I do hope the little terror does not get hold of any cables behind your pc.
I can see things hotting up* around here as some of these new theories are bounced around (*Hotting up in a good way)

I have not heard of Graham Hancocks work with maps, but from the way you describe it I can imagine the curved surface of the earth reflecting the apparent concave sky with the stars and planets. If it were mapped out this way then it would be interesting to see when everything lines up again. I recently downloaded a picture of the Piri Reis map that apparently shows Antarctic before it was covered in ice. This is a report concerning the authenticity of the map.

" On 6th July 1960 the U. S. Air Force responded to Prof. Charles H. Hapgood of Keene College, specifically to his request for an evaluation of the ancient Piri Reis Map:

6, July, 1960
Subject: Admiral Piri Reis Map
TO: Prof. Charles H. Hapgood
Keene College
Keene, New Hampshire

Dear Professor Hapgood,
Your request of evaluation of certain unusual features of the Piri Reis map of 1513 by this organization has been reviewed.
The claim that the lower part of the map portrays the Princess Martha Coast of Queen Maud Land, Antarctic, and the Palmer Peninsular, is reasonable. We find that this is the most logical and in all probability the correct interpretation of the map.
The geographical detail shown in the lower part of the map agrees very remarkably with the results of the seismic profile made across the top of the ice-cap by the Swedish-British Antarctic Expedition of 1949.
This indicates the coastline had been mapped before it was covered by the ice-cap.
The ice-cap in this region is now about a mile thick.
We have no idea how the data on this map can be reconciled with the supposed state of geographical knowledge in 1513.

The map I downloaded is here if anyone has not seen it. http://www.mtvdance.com/scitrance/shivat...

I also remember seeing some reports about ancient maps , carved into stone, that may have been useful for navigation by air. I think they were in Russia. At the time I doubted whether advanced civilisations with air transport would carve their maps into stone, but maybe if ancient maps were designed to show later generations the locations of stars mirrored in cities and monuments then stone would be a good form.

I guess Graham Hancock will already have thought of this, but, if we were able to map out the world then it would not be too difficult to encode it's size into the pyramids which Kinda makes them into learning tools as well as navigation aids and markers for an astrological alignment. Maybe if there were no subject definitions and genres in those days, all effort worthy monuments would serve as many purposes as possible.
