    you forgot to mention that there is a an opening in Antarctica that leads to middle earth. the path that admiral Byrd took. where he found a civilization of humanoids living there. you also forgot to mention the reason why Antarctica was a green forest was because it was connected to Africa and broke off due to plate tectonics. You also forgot to mention the pyramids that were found there. especially those that were built by the Nephilim.

    ADMIN: With the possible exception of the plate tectonics theory these are all just fantastical claims. There is currently no available evidence to support them.

    Interesting facts and opinions. Interestingly, they are presented as though all facts. Note that there is a difference between what some scientists believe based on certain models, and what they can scientifically prove. When the introduction states that science “reveals” the length of time the continent has been covered in ice, note that there is no unanimity about that number. That is an opinion. Journalists have to be careful about their term selections. Scientific reports on many of the facts stated can be verified, but not so regarding when it last rained or how long the current ice sheet has been on the ground. What typically happens is that with ongoing research the estimates keep changing. If it keeps changing then it is neither a fact nor a revelation. It is a guess or an estimate. The same thing happens with the age of the earth, where typically the science textbooks used in schools cannot keep pace with the changing opinions as reported in the latest scientific papers.

      That’s what happens when one grouping of ‘the powerful’ does ..all they can to control nature’s narrative. Just think how Charles Darwin and his gang of thugs were once propped up as a heroes, today with more info and research out there they are seen as a sinister group of villains. :twisted:
