The archaic tribes who built the great megalithic astronomical clocks of western Europe, such as Stonehenge in England and Carnac on the britanny coast of France, are a mystery to mainstream scientists, who can’t understand the great interest and energy spent erecting those stone monuments of timekeeping, when the knowledge of the times of the seasons of the year was really all those early farmers and hunters needed, so we must ask why this tremendous interest in precise astronomical measurements, entailing the precise dates of the solstices and equinoxes? It’s because they measured the rate of precession (the wobble of the earth’s axis), from year to year, the rate that the stars appear to have shifted to the left, relative to the horizon, from one solstice or equinox to that same one a year later, like a ratchet, while the rotation of the earth around the sun causes the stars appear to move to the right during the course of a year.
As the earth spins, the rate of its wobble is 72 years/degree, this rate perfect for hexagon geometry, which means earth measure, as explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, which enabled the ancients to measure and map the earth by the stars, navigating all over the globe, building megalithc structures of gargantuan proportions, never again duplicated, the engineering of many of them so complex as to challenge today’s technology, in the 2000 B.C. timeframe, confusing to mainstream scientists, but they don’t acknowledge the astromical savvy demonstrated in the link, and so, the mysteries of the sophisticated astronomical knowledge, and the Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Hapgood), escape them, not to mention how the ancients surveyed the Great Pyramid of Giza (which is explained in the ancient mapping finding in the link), so be sure to let them know.
Three alternative archaeologists, Graham Hancock, David Hatcher Childress, and Maxine Asher, have brought the world’s attention to submerged ruins in many parts of the world (despite mainstream science’s willful ignorance of), many of them off southern Spain, near Gibraltar, where the Pillar of Hercules once stood tall, submerged bronze age megalithic ruins from Huelva to Tarifa along the spanish coast, and off Tangiers too, submerged since the end of the Ice Age, the date of which however, at least the mainstream scientists’ date, at circa 10000 B.C. defies the clearly bronze age appearance of the ruins, looking like the ruins still onshore, ancient “phoenician” ruins of the Iberian Peninsula, and Britain, which were in reality atlantean, including Stonehenge and Carnac, where nearby in the sea are found submerged ruins from that time too, of Cantre’ Gwaelod in Cardigan Bay, and of Lyonesse off Cornwall in England, the kingdom of Ys, or Keris, submerged off the britanny coast of France, undoudtedly among others, but ignored by mainstream science led by National Geographic and the History Channel, as they don’t want to admit the Ice Age ended much later than they are saying.
Plato said the City of Posidon was an island, within three circular concentric canals, five miles from the coast, connected to it by a ship canal, while Plato also spoke of the island of Atlantis, where at the southern end of its southern plain (which was 300 miles by 200 miles in area) was the island city of Atlantis, five miles from the coast, now submerged on the continental shelf, probably 30 miles south of Cadiz, in 120 feet of water, the ruins reported by spanish diver bon vivante Paco Salazar, published by author Maxine Asher. These are bronze age megalithic ruins of legendary Atlantis, which clearly was real history, when you realize the actual date for the end of the Ice Age was circa 1500 B.C., when there was climatological tumult all over the world, as the sea level rose, and the middle latitudes dried out.
And Plato said the the empire of Atlantis extended to Italy and Libya in the Mediterranean, and far outside Gibraltar too (Spain, England), so there were many meanings to Atlantis in his story, you have to read it closely. Considering Plato says the mountains north of the atlantean plain, which were the source of their mineral wealth, roughly bisected, east to west, the island of Atlantis, it’s clear that he was refering to the Sierra Nevada and Morena mountains of the iberian peninsula, Spain and Portugal, where there are indeed a vast array of “phoenician” ruins and artwork, fashioned circa 2000 B.C., this date which the mainstream scientists have right, but obviously, not the date for the end of the Ice Age, which all is reconciled when the biblical timeline is taken seriously, with the end of the Ice Age circa 1500 B.C., predictably corroborated by a vast array of evidence.
