Graham Hancock has executed much groundbreaking work about ancient history, he has brought awareness to millions of people about the presence of submerged megalithic ruins in many parts of the world, some of them of Atlantis (see category Atlantis Revealed), and he has made the proper connection between our nautical mile mapping system and the surveyance for the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and their connection to the Hindu yugas of time which have the same numerations, but Hancock didn’t know how they did it, until I deduced the finding in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, and now, he has the article posted at his website, although he has not publicly acknowledged the veracity of this finding which plainly ties it all together, because he hates young earth creationists such as yours truly. (If one of his new ager ilk or a mainstream archaeologist had determined the finding, Hancock would have shouted from the rooftops with vigor.)
Charles Hapgood, in his classic book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, rightly saw that some of the ancient maps were based upon sumerian base 60 measurements, of the very ancient “Twelve Winds” mapping system, which were made in bronze age times, but not thereafter, as Plato said those maps were too difficult to make, so the Greeks and others began to make far less accurate maps, not knowing how to accurately measure time (precession time), and so, be enabled to accurately measure east-west distances, as are evident in the archaic 12 Winds Maps of such uncanny precision.
Thanks to Crichton Miller’s work on the Celtic Cross (archaeometer), which is now a patented back-up navigational device for sailing ships, we know the type of mechanical instrument with which they measured the earth, with the same function as Maui’s Tanawa, the Mayan Staff of Power, and the greeks’ Antikythera mechanism, of which Plato seems to have been ignorant, although he did say that Timosthenes, circa 600 B.C., was still making the 12 Winds Maps, by the methodology described the link above, of which Miller was also unware, until I apprised him of it, but he doesn’t like young earth creation scientists either, so he hasn’t publicly acknowledge the veracity of the finding, although he did to me, and demanded that he receive credit for the role which his work played in the finding, which it did.
In their landmark book, Hamlet’s Mill, authors Hertha von Dechend and Giorgios de Santillana, back in the 60’s, around the time Hapgood’s book came out, opined that the ancients somehow were measuring the rate of precession, which even Hapgood didn’t deduce, and Hancock picked up on all that, and established the relevance of the precession numbers to the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Giza, while he established the presence of submerged megalithic ruins in many parts of the world, then rightly opinionating that this mapping was ongoing during the Ice Age, which conventionally is said to have ended circa 10000 B.C., but megalithic building didn’t begin until circa 2500 B.C., so there’s obviously a problem with that timeline, however, no problem with the young earth creationism model, explained in the free ebook download of my first book, Old Earth? Why Not!.
The hindu vedic literature indicates that the sea rose circa 1500 B.C. to consume many coastal cities of the kingdoms of Kumari Kandam and Rama, in the Gulf of Kutch for instance, the ruins of the ancient vedic city, Old Dwaraka, anciently known as Kususthali (named after Kush), submerged on the old river valley of the Gomati river, back when it was a strong river, but now is just a trickle. The navigators of Kusuthali were mappers like the Egyptians, Greeks, and Atlanteans, so the mapping numbers were transliterated into their sacred time measures, the hindu yugas of time, of the same methodolgy as the 12 winds maps, the surveyance of the Great Pyramid, and for the navigational wizardry of the Atlanteans, based in the Gibraltar area, known to the ancient Hindus as Atala, the dominant western sea power in archaic times.
