Never Again!

These poor people lost their city 9,000 years ago to sea level rise, because they just weren’t smart enough to build windmills or implement a carbon tax. We can do better, because we have wise men like Michael Mann, Prince Charles, Richard Branson, Bette Midler, Leonardo DiCaprio, the mermaid from Splash, and Al Gore to tell us what to do.

    I’m glad you didn’t leave Bette Midler out. πŸ™‚

    This one is shaking up the establishment as well:

      But, but, but the consensus… πŸ˜†

      One of my interests is ancient history, and what we learned in school was flat wrong. Human civilization is older than we thought, and ancient humans traveled much more widely than we were taught.

        It would not surprise me to find that man’s past history (and previous creations) has largely been ‘subducted’ deep into the earth (and thereby recycled) due to mantle movement, and we are (to use a Yogi Bera-ism) “discovering everything all over again”.

    What is new about that ?

  4. Gamecock says:

    History isn’t what it used to be.

      Those that were in the right received bad press and the villains enjoyed the prestige and adoration of the press contemporaneously at the time … my, how times have changed. No, wait …

  5. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    It’s not unusual for dredging along the east coast of the US (for beach re-nourishment projects) to pump artifacts and fossils onto the beach. Pottery shards and stone tools, as well as horse and camel teeth are not uncommon. The dredges typically dig 2 to 6 miles from shore in water depths of 20+ feet.

    If only the ancient indians had realized campfires and buffalo farts would cause sea levels to rise they could have done something to prevent it.

  6. People knew more about “lost cities”–including submerged ones–in the 19th century, before science enthroned uniformitarian evolution, and later “plate tectonics”, and made them the central theories of all the life- and earth-sciences, respectively. 9,000 years ago is nothing, yet everything to a mankind that has not pierced the “ancient mysteries” of perennial popularity. The larger truth is what happened between roughly 20,000 and 10,000 years ago (when the very shapes and distribution of the continents themselves was set, by design), as only my research has uncovered and verified. This is very deep water, as it were, for the amateur scientists of today, and the last 150+ years, to be swimming around in. It is a time of unsuspected general ignorance, and innocent hubris.

      Hmmm … ‘alternative theory’ type stuff … based on?? Next, are we going to hear that energy can be extracted from magnets or some other over-unity device for which there exists only Youtube videos or websites by amateurs showing nothing more than readings on simple DVMs (digital volt meters) as instrumentation, without an oscilloscope or RMS-reading DVM in sight?

  7. Gamecock says:

    I’d love to explore the mouth of the Columbia River 300′ down, or the hump 6500′ down in the Black Sea. I think I’d find amazing artifacts, and, perhaps, Atlantis.

  8. TimiBoy says:

    So Conan was an Indian?

  9. Rosco says:

    Donovan was right after all.

  10. Bob Knows says:

    Probably over 90% of human civilization and other human living places were lost when the Ice age melted. People then, as now, tend to live near the sea. The great flood stories are about the end of the ice age when most human settlements vanished beneath the waves. Those who survived and lived to write stories about the great flood were the ones who packed up and moved to higher ground before they were marooned on islands that would soon vanish. I have to laugh every time I see some idiot claiming to be searching for Noah’s boat. After 10,000 years of oral traditions the story gets little distorted, but still remembered.

  11. inMAGICn says:

    While I get the comedy usage of this “lost city,” there is considerable doubt about it. The artifacts may not be as claimed, the carbon-dating is suspect, the structures are questionable, and the excavation has been done with no stratigraphy…they used a dredge.
