Default Evidence of Lemuria?

Hello all,

Long time no see

I know this is a few years old, but perhaps you haven't seen it...
More firm evidence that there /were/ great civilzations 10,000 years ago, maybe even the Atlantis and Lemuria of the BSG narration...

With affection,
Muffit

"The whole model of the origins of civilization with which archaeologists have been working will have to be remade from scratch..."

Another Submerged City

21-Jan-2002

The remains of a huge underwater city off the western coast of India may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history. It's believed that the area was submerged when ice caps melted at the end of the last ice age, 9-10,000 years ago.

Marine scientists say archaeological remains disco vered 120 feet underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India could be over 9,000 years old. The vast city - which is five miles long and two miles wide - is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.

The site was discovered by chance last year by oceanographers from India's National Institute of Ocean Technology who were conducting a survey of pollution. Using sidescan sonar - which sends a beam of sound waves down to the bottom of the ocean - they identified huge geometrical structures at a depth of 120 feet. Debris recovered from the site - including construction material, pottery, sections of walls, beads, sculpture and human bones and teeth - has been carbon dated and found to be nearly 9,500 years old.

However, archaeologist Justin Morris from the British Museum says more work will need to be done before the site can be said to belong to a 9,000 year old civilization, since there can be errors in carbon dating. "Culturally speaking, in that part of the world there were no civilizations prior to about 2,500 BC. What's happening before then mainly consisted of small, village settlements," he says.

Strong tides make investigations in the Cambay difficult. Marine scientists led by the Madras-based National Institute of Ocean Technology are solving this problem by taking acoustic images off the sea-bed and using dredging equipment to extract artifacts.

The Indian Minister for Ocean Technology, Murli Manohar Joshi, says the images indicate symmetrical man-made structures and also a paleo-river, with banks containing artifacts, such as pottery. Carbon dating on a block of wood brought up from the depths suggests it dates back to 7,595 BC. "We have to find out what happened then ... where and how this civilisation vanished," he says.

The city is believed to be even older than the ancient Harappan civilisation, which dates back around 4,000 years and is the oldest on the subcontinent. Although Palaeolithic sites dating back around 20,000 years have been found on the coast of India's western state of Gujarat before, this is the first time that man-made structures as old as 9,500 years have been found deep beneath the ocean surface.

Marine archaeologists have used a technique known as sub- bottom profiling to show that the buildings were built on enormous foundations. Graham Hancock, author of "Fingerprints of the Gods," says, "The [oceanographers] found that they were dealing with two large blocks of apparently man made structures. Cities on this scale are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia. Nothing else on the scale of the underwater cities of Cambay is known. The first cities of the historical period are as far away from these cities as we are today from the pyramids of Egypt."

Hancock feels this discovery could have a major influence on our view of the ancient world. "There's a huge chronological problem in this discovery. It means that the whole model of the origins of civilization with which archaeologists have been working will have to be remade from scratch," he says.

Hi Taranis! Hi Dawg!

Thank you for remembering little old me.
I recalled some time ago folks used to post news items like this, and when I saw it I thought of y'all.

Btw, this jibes very well with additional evidence of advanced civilizations having existed then disappeared by some cataclysm, on two other continents.

In South America, there is a huge stone structure whcih could only have been fashioned by a very advanced and large culture, and has been dated numerous times to circa 10,000 years ago. Scientists have not wanted to acknowledge this since all the available info points to 5,000 years of history only. And recent exhaustive tests have shown the Sphynx in Egypt suffered considerable water damage from rainfall in its distant past. Yet no such rainfall has fallen - except 10,000 years ago. Added to that, the mysterious tiny shafts from the King and Queen's chambers in teh Great Pyramid, never pointed to their respective stellar deities any time near 5,000 years ago. However, by computer simulation, they proved they /did/ point /exactly/ to those deities -- (you guessed it) 10,000 years ago.

All of this plus India seems to point to a worldwide fairly advanced set of civilzations, all of which disappeared with nary a trace, and humanity had to start completely over - which took until 5,000 years ago to reach the same stage of science and culture. Researchers point out that the melting of teh polar ice cap may have raised sea levels and inundated all of the coastal cities (where everybody lived, mainly), causing this disaster, and covering the evidence from our eyes under hundreds of feet of ocean.

Anyway, I love this stuff, hope you all do too...

Nice to see ya's!

Hi Muffit,
We havent't met before, but you seem to be legendary around the fleets.
I appreciate your topic of discussion here, and totally understand the content of it, as I too, delve greatly into the realms of ancient /pre-history of our world.
Alike to Lemuria, Sri Lanka had a prehistorical lost city called, Lankapura, which was really ruled by an ancient persian people...ahhh fascinating isn't it?
Have you ever read a book called "Dead Man's Secrets" by Jonothan Gray?
And here's another you will be blown away with, is "The 12th Planet-Book 1 of the Earth Chronicles" by Zecharia Sitchin.... The bible tells of our celestial ancestors, called the Nefilim. I 'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on these.
Best Wishes!

Hi CBSG4ever!

Wow, that /is/ a good resource - I think I'm gonna order that book, it looks really neat. The author does have a few misquotes and ideas, but all in all it looks really interesting.

Thanks!

And hi Lt. Lyra!

It's so nice to meet you. And thank you so much for the neat resources, I will check them out for sure. The Nephilim I am aware of, if I remember right, they were half-angel, half-human, and God was not too awful happy about their mixing with the human blood-line. (That part of the Bible is kind of bizarre for me, but certainly interesting(!)). I sure appreciate your thoughts and thank you for your kindness.

With much affection to both,
Muffit

Lyra,

More than 'legendary', Muffit is the very soul of our Fleet. Her kindness and wisdom serve as reminders that there is goodness in all waiting to be discovered.

Now, her musings, ....... those are legendary!!

It was great to see you here again. Cool news story. I think archeologists now living are getting to work in the best time for their fields as far as discovering lost cities and ancient remanents.

Muffit -

Nice to see your furry face again!

I remember doing some online research on the subject of Lemuria - the opening narration always made me curious about it. I don't remember much about what I found (I might have posted it here....or not). I do remember one particular website saying that it was beleived that Lemuria predated Atlantis - historically speaking.

Thanks for bringing some of the mythos back into discussion!
