As alternative archaeologist John Anthony West eloquently points out in my second documentary production, Atlantis: Secret Star Mappers of a Lost World, the oceans of the world were not barriers to the ancient settlers, as popularly opined, but were watery highways, fast, requiring relatively little effort, navigating often with currents and tradewinds, to far flung regions of the world, in search of gold, silver, tin, copper, jade, and pearls, navigating by the stars, thereby knowing distances and directions on a global scale, to within 0.5% precision, by the methodology simply explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
Because of the precession mapping methodology by the stars, the ancients could embark on a voyage to a location halfway around the world, and sail to within 200 miles of their destination, by this mapping method with an error of 0.5%, the same margin of error of the dimensions and alignment of the Great Pyramid of Giza by this same precession mapping and surveying methodology.
We know that Bronze Age cultures used oceangoing vessels, like the Greek and Phoenician ones you see in the movies, and like the ones found buried near the Pyramids of Giza. And with the many evidences worldwide of ancient mining and seafaring by the Phoenicians (Atlanteans) and Egyptians, and with this simple mapping methodology of fantastic precision, it’s a no brainer to say that Bronze Age navigators were exploiting minerals and other on a global scale.
In the documentary, Graham Hancock agrees with all this, but still thinks that the submerged Bronze Age cities which have been discovered in many parts of the world were submerged at around 10000 B.C., or 8000 B.C., or whenever he currently thinks the Ice Age ended. He doesn’t ever seem to be too sure when it ended, like the mainstream scientific experts on all this, who will say anywhere from 15000 B.C. to 5000 B.C. for the end of the Ice Age. Google around a bit, see for yourself.
But with Bronze Age cities on the shallow seafloor, and Bronze Age navigation obviously a foregone conclusion, we see that the Ice Age, in fact, ended much later than popularly advertised, when the ancient world was turned upside down, by drastic climate change, a great dry-out, described in the Ipuwer Papyrus from Egypt, and sea level rose a few feet per year, for about a century, as described in various ancient legends, such as in the Rig Veda about Dwarka, India, so Hancock and the mainstreamers are boxed in by all this evidence, which wonderfully comports with Genesis history, that the Ice Age ended when the Exodus occurred, when the ancient world was turned upside down.
