I wish somebody would hurry up and find Atlantis then TV could find something else to talk about, hopefully not the Titanic again though.

Perhaps the Titanic hit Atlantis?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I wish there was an Atlantis. I wish there was a Santa Claus too. I guess I've been a bad fella.

Atlantis would solve all the questions. The mysteries that we talk about are unfathomable, anomalous, and right now unsolvable. The only sensible thing to do though is keep looking and don't give it all up by selling out to something like an Atlantis theory.

A person can look at our history through a hyperdiffusionist lens without going there.

We've got to cover the chapter about the Saharan climate in the early Holocene period, but I've obviously been caught up with the statement that J.A. West made about that land bridge.

I have a lot more checking to do. Anybody with Google Earth should take a look at the island chain composed of Malta, Gozo, etc. The elevation meter will also work as a negative reader, but not very accurately I don't think.

But I'm not finding a spot that wouldn't be above sea level at that time.
That would open up a new bag of worms.

Min, I was about to give you a shout, but then, I figure what the hell, we've got about 20 years minimum to finish this. No rush.

Maybe some tomorrow. 8)

I wonder how many pages we'll be up to.

Okay. I have to put some time in on my other project. What the hell time is it in Warsaw?

Beagle, Cognito and anyone else interested

I found this link http://www.worldwindcentral.com/wiki/Add-on:Sea_Level
which allows you to visualize the sea level on google earth at the time of the ice age (120m lower) and if the all the ice melts in Greenland and Antartica (80m. higher). I'm downloading it now (53mbytes) so have'nt had a chance to review it yet.

Might be the very thing you were looking for.

:wink:

I'm positive that this won't give me the picture that I saw earlier today. The first reason is that I think I've seen it before.

The second reason is obvious. :lol:

Monk, I'm sorry, I'm not getting anything. I'm heading for the barn. I might check back later - definately tomorrow.

You're a good fellow Monk. I don't understand you're choice of friends, and it's none of my business. There is no secret about what is going on in this forum. We've seen it before. This too shall pass.

Just don't drink the Koolaid, my friend.

Back to Saharan climate, then.

Just a quick reference located here; one suspects there are others.

http://www.zeco.com/travel-reports/dayreports.asp?id=139&itid=1399

On the nine-hour return trip to Agadez, we took an alternate route and visited the incredible Dabous Engravings, one of the finest examples of rock art in the Sahara region. Between about 9000 and 4000 BC, the climate in northern Africa was much wetter and the Sahara region was a verdant grassland that supported large numbers of African wildlife species. Nilo-Saharan speaking peoples from northeastern Africa (in the present Sudan) migrated into the Sahara region and brought their domesticated animals with them. The Dabous rock art portrays life-size giraffes in amazing detail along with numerous other species of animals: gazelles, addaxes, baboons, and domesticated, long-horned zebu cattle. Archaeologists have estimated that the engravings were made between 8,000 and 6,000 years ago, near the end of the wet cycle in the Sahara. Between 4000 BC and 2500 BC, the Sahara gradually became drier and converted back into a major desert.
