9.1 – PYRAMIDS OF ANTARCTICA (5.6.16)

ORONTEUS FINAEUS MAP [2c]

Siberia, 2013. A wooly mammoth is discovered flash frozen in the glacial ice, engulfed so quickly that its blood and muscle tissue are perfectly preserved. It is just one of dozens that have been found within the Siberian ice since the turn of the 20th-century. Many seemingly caught in suspended animation, some with food in their mouths and vegetation in their stomachs that would only grow in a much warmer climate.

“The discovery of a woolly mammoth that was flash frozen raises some interesting scientific questions. Did something happen very locally to the woolly mammoth that it froze very fast? But it does also raise the question of how quickly can climate really change. And does it take some sort of cataclysm, one that’s sudden and unexpected?”

In 1958, Charles Hapgood, a Harvard-educated scientist, published the book, Earth’s Shifting Crust. In it, he proposed that portions of the Earth’s crust experienced violent and sudden shifts during Earth’s geological history. His theory, known as Crustal Displacement, posited that both Siberia and the continent of Antarctica were located in slightly more temperate climates prior to the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 12,000 years ago. But then, some unknown catastrophe plunged them into their current positions.

“Professor Hapgood came up with the idea that the previous North Pole position had been in the area of the Hudson Bay. And then it shifted to where the pole is today. And at the Southern Pole, he believes that the area of Antarctica had previously also experienced a temperate climate, and that this was suddenly now thrust into this deep ice and this harsh, freezing climate. He believed the last time that this had actually taken place was approximately 12,000 years ago.”

“When we think about Earth crust displacement theory and plate tectonics, you want to think of the crust basically floating on the magma and being able to shift and move around on top of it. The Earth’s crust is not one solid piece. We know it’s made of individual pieces. So, you could look and see how the continents probably used to fit together and where they’ve moved, and how they move apart over a long period of time. But the question is, you know, would something the size of Antarctica shift suddenly, or is that too big?”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“These crustal shifts, according to Hapgood, actually could happen over a period of even days. And so, if you had a thriving civilization, this crustal displacement could have hit it very, very quickly, and so, it could have actually been frozen over a very short period of time.”

– Michael Salla, Ph.D. (Author, Exopolitics:
Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence)

Although Hapgood’s theory of sudden, large-scale shifts of the Earth’s crust was not widely accepted, renowned physicist Albert Einstein was “electrified” by it, and even wrote the foreword of Hapgood’s book. Hapgood would also find additional support for his theory when, in 1960, while combining through the Library of Congress archives, he unearthed an unusual map, published in 1531. The map, credited to mathematician and cartographer Oronteus Finaeus, appears to depict an ice-free continent remarkably similar to today’s maps of Antarctica.

“It was not until as late as 1820 that we had any real idea of what Antarctica looked like. Yet, here, on the Oronteus Finaeus map from 1531, here was Antarctica. How the hell is it possible that it could appear on this map?”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

Researchers are baffled as to how the Oronteus Finaeus map could include a continent that was not discovered until over 300 years later, and are even more perplexed by the fact that it depicts Antarctica free of ice. If explorers somehow discovered Antarctica in the 1500s, it would have been completely frozen over. Remarkably, the Finaeus map shows not only a detailed coastline free of ice, but the entire continent, including interior features such as rivers, valleys and mountains.

“The map shows mountain ranges that have rivers coming out of the mountain ranges. How could that be? It’s frozen, it’s ice. There’s a NASA image of the continent of Antarctica using radar so that mountain ranges come through and can be seen. And you can see a mountain range on one photograph, and on the Oronteus Finaeus map, it’s right there too. It’s the same mountain range.”

Jerry Kroth, Ph.D. (Author, Aliens and Man)

According to climatologists, the estimates of when this feature would have been free from ice cover was at least 6,000 years ago. So, how is it possible that this map exists? Did Finaeus have access to an older map, one dating back thousands of years? Perhaps more confounding, U.S. Air Force cartographers that were sent the maps in the 1960s concluded that they were drawn using advanced spherical trigonometry with remarkable precision, especially when considering the maps were made hundreds of years ago.

“The fact that we find something that’s a reference to modern-day technology on a map that dates back to the 16th-century, makes me think: is it possible that some type of advanced radar technology was used? Because in order to produce a map that would outline the areas we see, you would have to be at an altitude of 80 miles. So, how was that possible? Could it be that the basis for these maps was gleaned from maps that were cartographed by extraterrestrial land surveyors?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The implications of all this – and if you now are able to add things like pyramids – this would really indicate that there was some kind of ancient civilization in Antarctica. And that it would have been over 12,000 years ago. And you’ve got to wonder what kind of civilization this was. Is it possible that it was extraterrestrials?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Could Antarctica have been inhabited by extraterrestrials in the distant past? Did they study this continent and leave behind detailed information about its landscape? If so, just what happened to these otherworldly visitors? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe more clues can be found in Egyptian stories describing an Earth-altering catastrophe.
