When Antarctica Was Warm…

Whenever I read an article about how Antarctica was once a warm and tree covered paradise, my imagination soars and I wonder, well then, who was living there then? Some people say that the true location of Atlantis is under the ice of Antarctica – it IS a giant island after all… And with all the evidence lately of civilization being way older than we ever thought, who is to say that we weren’t around a million years ago building cities? (See: The Vedic literature of India!) –


EcoAlert: Ancient Antarctica Found Warmer & Wetter Than Expected





“A new university-led study with NASA participation finds ancient Antarctica was much warmer and wetter than previously suspected. The climate was suitable to support substantial vegetation — including stunted trees — along the edges of the frozen continent.


By examining plant leaf wax remnants in sediment core samples taken from beneath the Ross Ice Shelf, the research team found summer temperatures along the Antarctic coast 15 to 20 million years ago were 20 degrees Fahrenheit (11 degrees Celsius) warmer than today, with temperatures reaching as high as 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius). Precipitation levels also were found to be several times higher than today.


“The ultimate goal of the study was to better understand what the future of climate change may look like,” said Feakins, an assistant professor of Earth sciences at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. “Just as history has a lot to teach us about the future, so does past climate. This record shows us how much warmer and wetter it can get around the Antarctic ice sheet as the climate system heats up. This is some of the first evidence of just how much warmer it was.”…

“The Door of the Cougar”

Blow your mind and read about Puma Punku, my favorite ancient ruin. Built with stone cutting techniques that rival our own, this place is the smoking gun for the idea that super advanced civilizations existed way, way, way long ago –



“Pumapunku, also called “Puma Pumku” or “Puma Puncu”, is part of a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia. In Aymara, its name means, “The Door of the Cougar”. The processes and technologies involved in the creation of these temples are still not fully understood by modern scholars. Our current ideas of the Tiwanaku culture hold that they had no writing system and also that the invention of the wheel was most likely unknown to them. The architectural achievements seen at Pumapunku are striking in light of the presumed level of technological capability available during its construction. Due to the monumental proportions of the stones, the method by which they were transported to Pumapunku has been a topic of interest since the temple’s discovery.


Of course there is no certainty that this was the reason as the ancient builders left no written records. All the legends have been handed down through the generations…”

Early Cave Art May Not Be of Human Origin

This is one of the most interesting arguments in favor of the “humanity” of our old friends the Neanderthals!


Famous Cave Paintings Might Not Be From Humans

by  (NPR)


“The famous paintings on the walls of caves in Europe mark the beginning of figurative art and a great leap forward for human culture.


But now a novel method of determining the age of some of those cave paintings questions their provenance. Not that they’re fakes — only that it might not have been modern humans who made them.



The first European cave paintings are thought to have been made over 30,000 years ago. Most depict animals and hunters. Some of the eeriest are stencils of human hands, apparently made by blowing a spray of pigment over a hand held up to a wall.


But now scientists are suggesting those aren’t human hands, at least in some caves in Spain…”
