Just when you thought that Antarctica could not possibly become any stranger, reality comes along and upsets things. And it certainly has been strange. For one thing, temperatures in the southern polar continent have been on average about 20 degrees warmer than normal, and I even read a report that certain places in Antarctica reached a balmy 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and that indeed was very convenient, because we were told that the strange visits of former Secretary of State John Kerry and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin were all about “climate change.” Well, indulge my high octane speculation for a moment: if one can manipulate weather systems, then boosting the temperature in Antarctica a bit to “help out the narrative” would not be all that farfetched, if one grants the assumption. And personally, I put nothing past these people. “See? it got up to 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit! So Kerry’s visit was about climate change. Nothing to see here, move along.”

Except that Kerry isn’t the only one to have shown a sudden interest in Antarctica. Readers of this website and of my books will know that he’s but the most recent famous visitor and world leader to take an interest in the continent, a list which includes Admiral Richard Byrd, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Prince What’s-his-name from Great Britain, Kiril III Patriarch of Moscow, and oh yes, did we mention the Nazi expedition and its sponsors Rudolf Hess – who ended up in Great Britain in May of 1941 for reasons that are still difficult to fathom and then spent the rest of his life in Spandau prison, where his British physician discovered reasons to believe that “Hess” was not Hess, while Frau Hess adamantly maintained he was, &c. – and Hermann Goering. One made add to this list the planned visit of elements of Russia’s Baltic Sea Fleet, which, as I pointed out a few weeks ago, was not known for the success of its half-way-round-the-world junkets (see the Russo-Japanese War, Admiral Rozhdestvenski, Admiral Togo, &c.). A strange mix indeed: Orthodox Patriarchs, US diplomats and astronauts, British and Spanish royalty, the Deputy Fuehrer of Nazi Germany (not as a visitor, but as an “interested party”) and the founder and head of the Luftwaffe (again, not as a visitor but as an “interested party”), and an American admiral and a few U.S. Marines.

Nothing to see here, move along.

In my previous high octane speculations about all this Antarctimania I’ve suggested that there might be four basic reasons for all this interest (1) “they” had need to conduct secret negotiations with “someone” and where better to do it than balmy Antarctica, where access is strictly controlled; or (2) “they” had found something down there, of an extraterrestrial nature, either life or technology or both; or (3) “they” had found something relating to humanity’s distant past and perhaps to the legend of Atlantis (after all, Antarctica is a continent submerged under lots of water in the form of ice); or (4) some combination of elements, or all, of the above.

With that in mind, consider this article shared by Mr. B.H. (and many others), for it looks like options (3) and (4) might now be the main contenders in our list of high octane speculative options:

https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/antarctica-nasa-images-reveal-traces-of-ancient-human-settlement-underneath-2-3-km-of-ice/embed/#?secret=c2WaT4oOJi

Note the opening two paragraphs:

WASHINGTON | Recently released remote sensing photography of NASA’s Operation IceBridge mission in Antarctica led to a fascinating discovery when images revealed what some experts believe could be the existence of a possible ancient human settlement lying beneath an impressive 2.3 kilometers of ice.

The intriguing discovery was made during aircraft tests trials of NASA’s Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS) lidar technology set to be launched on the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) in 2017, that aims to monitor changes in polar ice.

I don’t know about you, but assuming that these photos are genuine, the image on the right clearly looks artificial to me, and an Indian archaeologist, Ashoka Tripathi, as noted in the article, concurs:

“These are clearly features of some sort of human-made structure, resembling some sort of pyramidal structure. The patterns clearly show nothing we should expect from natural geomorphological formations found in nature. We clearly have here evidence of human engineering. The only problem is that these photographs were taken in Antarctica under 2 kilometers of ice. That is clearly the puzzling part, we do not have any explanation for this at the moment,” he admits.

The problem, as noted, is that this is buried under two kilometers – that’s about 1.2 miles for those of you still using the more scientific imperial metrology – and that raises the problem of how such a habitation became encrusted with about a mile of ice. Predictably, the explanation runs to the Piri Reis map:

“One of histories most puzzling maps is that of the Turkish admiral Piri Reis in 1513 AD which successfully mapped the coastline of Antarctica over 500 years ago. What is most fascinating about this map is that it shows the coastline of Antarctica without any ice. How is this possible when images of the subglacial coastline of Antarctica were only seen for the first time after the development of ground-penetrating radar in 1958? Is it possible Antarctica has not always been covered under such an ice sheet? This could be evidence that it is a possibility” he acknowledges.

« A slight pole shift or displacement of the axis of rotation of the Earth in historical times is possibly the only rational explanation that comes to mind but we definitely need more research done before we jump to any conclusion.”

What I find so incredible here is that the final two paragraphs are being advanced by Cambridge University cartographer Christopher Adam, who also appears to be accepting of the hypothesis that has been bandied about in alternative research for decades as an explanation for the 16th century Turkish admiral’s map and its highly anomalous depiction of the coastline of Antarctica without ice. The topic of axial rotational shift and even crustal displacement was first advanced by science teacher Charles Hapgood who made an extensive study of the Piri Reis map in his classic study, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Hapgood subsequently wrote a book about his theory of crustal displacement, with a foreword by none other than Dr. Albert Einstein. Let it also be noted, as I pointed out in my book The Financial Vipers of Venice, that in the marginalia of the Piri Reis map, the Turkish admiral also states that Christopher Columbus had mediaeval maps of the new world, and undertook a secret journey to the New World prior to his famous “voyage of discovery” in 1492, but that’s another story.

What’s intriguing of course is to contemplate when such an event might have occurred, and my high octane intuition suggests that this might have been concurrent with some ancient catastrophe, such as blowing up a planet in a war, the shock waves of which might have concussed the Earth, tipping it slightly, and burying an entire continent under lots of water which froze. And let’s remember, in Plato’s accounting of the Atlantis myth, the “lost continent” was known for its warlike ways.

So if this is human habitation, it certainly would be a significant enough discovery to call forth the attentions of US Secretaries of State, Patriarchs of Moscow, Baltic Sea Fleets, and Apollo 11 moon astronauts, for it would be an attestation of the truthfulness – in some degree – of the Atlantis myth. Recall however, that in that myth, it is strongly suggested that Atlantis was possessed of “technologies of war” that would be of interest as well, which might rationalize the attentions of American Admirals, Nazi Party Reichsleiters and the founder of the Luftwaffe. The problem there of course, is whether they knew of such things, and if so, how, since it is buried under lots of ice, and radar tomography from satellites did not develop until after World War Two.

So if it’s a human(or other) habitation, how does one investigate? Well, one way, of course, is to drill down through the ice and carefully excavate a subterranean chamber for conventional archaeological study.

And the other way, of course, is simply to melt the ice, while calling it “climate change.”

See you on the flip side..

Antarctica: NASA Images Reveal Traces Of Ancient Human Settlement Underneath 2.3K Of Ice

WASHINGTON | Recently released remote sensing photography of NASA’s Operation IceBridge mission in Antarctica led to a fascinating discovery when images revealed what some experts believe could be the existence of a possible ancient human settlement lying beneath an impressive 2.3 kilometers of ice.

The intriguing discovery was made during aircraft tests trials of NASA’s Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS) lidar technology set to be launched on the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) in 2017, that aims to monitor changes in polar ice.

“There’s very little margin for error when it comes to individual photons hitting on individual fiber optics, that is why we were so surprised when we noticed these abnormal features on the lidar imagery,” explains Nathan Borrowitz, IceBridge’s project scientist and sea ice researcher with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

“As of now we can only speculate as to what these features are but the launching of ICESat-2 in 2017 could lead to other major discoveries and a better understanding of Antarctica’s geomorphological features” he adds.
A human settlement buried under 2.3 km of ice

Leading archeologist, Ashoka Tripathi, of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Calcutta believes the images show clear evidence of an ancient human settlement beneath the ice sheet.

“These are clearly features of some sort of human-made structure, resembling some sort of pyramidal structure. The patterns clearly show nothing we should expect from natural geomorphological formations found in nature. We clearly have here evidence of human engineering. The only problem is that these photographs were taken in Antarctica under 2 kilometers of ice. That is clearly the puzzling part, we do not have any explanation for this at the moment,” he admits.

“These pictures just reflect a small portion of Antarctica’s total land mass. There are possibly many other additional sites that are covered over with ice. It just shows us how easy it is to underestimate both the size and scale of past human settlements,” says Dr Tripathi.

Remnants of a lost civilization

Historian and cartographer at the University of Cambridge, Christopher Adam, believes there might be a rationnal explanation.

The map of Turkish admiral Piri Reis in 1513 AD shows the “ice less” coastline of Antarctica

“One of histories most puzzling maps is that of the Turkish admiral Piri Reis in 1513 AD which successfully mapped the coastline of Antarctica over 500 years ago. What is most fascinating about this map is that it shows the coastline of Antarctica without any ice. How is this possible when images of the subglacial coastline of Antarctica were only seen for the first time after the development of ground-penetrating radar in 1958? Is it possible Antarctica has not always been covered under such an ice sheet? This could be evidence that it is a possibility” he acknowledges.

« A slight pole shift or displacement of the axis of rotation of the Earth in historical times is possibly the only rational explanation that comes to mind but we definitely need more research done before we jump to any conclusion.”

ICESat-2 (Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite 2), part of NASA’s Earth Observing System, is a planned satellite mission for measuring ice sheet mass elevation, sea ice freeboard as well as land topography and vegetation characteristics, and is set to launch in may 2017.

Fascinating NASA Map Shows Antarctica Ice-Free: Evidence Of Human Occupation?

This fascinating map provided by NASA shows Antarctica as it looked like in the distant past, free of Ice. We need to start looking at Antarctica from a different perspective since the now icy-continent could have been home to a number of ancient cultures.

Antarctica has long been considered as one of the most remote places on our planet due to its extreme climate. However, Antarctica isn’t only Ice. IN factor, there is more to Antarctica than we have knowledge of today. With its 14.0 million square kilometers, Antarctica is the fifth largest continent on our planet, and in other words, is twice the size of Australia.

It turns out that in the distant past of our planet, Antarctica was much more different than we see it today. In fact, the icy continent was located much more north in the distant past, meaning that the now icy continent was ice free in the past.

Interestingly, some 170 million years ago, Antarctica was part of the supercontinent called Gondwana. Around 25 million years ago, Antarctica as we know it, gradually broke apart from Gondwana.

Researchers have concluded that Antarctica was not always cold, dry, and covered in ice sheets. In fact during its long history, when Antarctica was located farther north, and the continent experiences a tropical or temperate climate, meaning that it was covered in forests, and inhabited by various ancient life forms.

But, is there a slight possibility that in the distant past of our planet, Antarctica was home to ancient Civilizations? Many have speculated for decades that icy continent was home to ancient civilizations before written history.

The story behind Antarctica is more than fascinating as there are a number of indicators which point to the possibility that the continent was occupied by ancient civilizations.

In 1929, researchers came across an ancient map that forever changed our views on ancient civilizations and their capabilities.

The Piri-Reis map, created by one of the most famous Turkish officers was a map lost for centuries, established in 1513; it was created with the use of much older maps that are said to predate numerous ancient cultures. The most shocking details about the map were the continent of Antarctica free of ice.

But the Piri-reis map isn’t the only one depicting Antarctica without ice; it turns out that a umber of other maps also depict Antarctica ice free before it was even discovered in ‘modern times.’

Another extremely controversial map is the cartographical chart created by a French geographer by the name of Philippe Buache de la Neuville. The Bauche map come in two different versions. The Buache map has two versions. One of the charts is believed to accurately depict the ice-free coastline of Antarctica while the other chart makes no mention of the continent whatsoever. Claims about the Buache Map and that it depicts the continent of Antarctica Ice-Free are said to have its origins Charles Hapgood’s 1966 book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Since then, many have claimed that together with other ancient maps, the Buache map was created based on far older maps which are said to have been created by a highly developed ancient civilization. However, many argue that this is incorrect.

NASA map shows what Antarctica would look like without ice

The animation released by NASA completely exposes what the Antarctic continent would look like if all the ice disappeared. The map from NASA offers a glimpse of what lies beneath our planet’s largest Ice sheet, revealing incredible features that will forever change our views on Antarctica. The data was compiled by researchers at the British Antarctic Survey, who worked on the project for over two decades, studying the surface elevation, and ice thickness measured with ice-penetrating radar.

The maps called BedMap2 is the most updated map of the content which includes a staggering 15 million additional measurements which have been done since 2001.

The map offers an incredible view of the icy continent and everything that lies hidden beneath the ice.

Human occupation on Antarctica?

The possibilities are endless if you realize that Antarctica wasn’t always as cold, dry and ‘inhospitable’ as it is today.

The question that we are not asking is the following: is it possible that Antarctica was once warm enough in the past to make it possible for an ancient civilization to live there? The answer is YES.

And if an ancient cultures did, in fact, develop and inhabit Antarctica in the distant past, wouldn’t we find evidence of their life there today? Well according to many researchers, there are structures at Antarctica, there are pyramids there and enough evidence to support the theory of ancient civilization inhabiting Antarctica in the past.

The new map issued by NASA reveals what seem to be a number of lines and structure-like objects seen thanks to the new maps. While many believe, these are mere natural formations, millions of people around the globe believe there is a firm possibility that the new maps will offer conclusive evidence of ‘Antediluvian’ structures located on the icy continent.

Whether or not the archaeological community will ever acknowledge this possibility is an entirely different question.

What do you believe? Is there a possibility that there are actual structures beneath the thick layers of Ice at Antarctica? Is it possible that maps like BedMap2 will help explore Antarctica, searching for evidence of ancient cultures on the continent? Is there a possibility that ancient civilization might have developed there thousands of years ago, when Antarctica had an entirely different climate? Let us know what you think.
