Why do you wish to avoid any discourse with me as I am presenting a serious discussion? Do you ignore people as you please and Address only Doctor Beaver, who is somewhat more gullible?
Jim!Quote: Canada 15,000 years ago, the ice was several kilometers thick and NOTHING lived on it. It was exactly as the interior of Antartica is today. That happened 23,000–18,000 years B.P. several kilometers thick sheet could create huge evaporation of water from warm and hot seas and oceans. that could produce huge fissure outflow from asthenosphere through the mid-ocean ridges mainly! Conclusive evidence about global geo-catastrophe 23,000 BP!

REGISTER or LOGINA system cools from the hottest part to the coolest. The vacuum and coolness of space allows ONLY for heat flow to occur from the core of the earth outward. It cannot occur the other way around as proven by Issac Newton.My, my, my - I learned that 5 years before I went to university at 18 years old. I am sorry you missed this law in school.
Gullible, am I?

Carl Martin Now you have Exclusive right to publish my Atlantis map in your site!
What a load of ......Is this supposed to be a Science forum?Tolkein does this sort of thing so much better.
I agree. Getting people who know nothing about geology, let alone people who disregard the scientific process - observe, experiment, verify THEN hypothesize - belong in a forum for people who would rather decline the scientific community. They are certainly NOT going to convert any scientifically-minded people.
Sometimes scientists can learn something from an "outsider." For more on this subject of "outsiderness," check out my award-winning essay, "Outsiderness in the Scientific Community," at ...sorry, you cannot view external links. To see them, please
REGISTER or LOGIN. I once heard a story from an artist who once worked for NASA about one such incident. Scientists had been working on a solution for a universal docking mechanism. One of the scientists told his son about his work, and his young son asked, "Can't they use a funnel?" Bingo! Also, scientists can be surprisingly ignorant at times. The mini-series on Oppenheimer shows one such incident where scientists are debating ardently about the friction inside their device. After some time, they realize with much chagrin that their arguments were wasted. Wear and tear from friction is meaningless inside a nuclear bomb.
Here's another interesting point. During the era in which Atlantis was supposed to have existed it is estimated that you could feed 1.4 people per hectare of farmland. Multiplying that by the alleged 64 million inhabitants of Atlantis means you would need an area of farmland 8 times the size of France (roughly half the size of the U.S.A.). Judging by the map Mr Margiani has posted, Atlantis was nowhere near that size.
Yes… this is impossible to study in the Oxford and Cambridge
I am not always such a grumpy old sod.
I think there may be some confusion in this paragraph between the words Scientist and Engineer. The man's son came up with an engineering solution, not a scientific truth.
One theory put forward is that all of Plato's figures should be divided by 10 - thus making Thera a good candidate. As Plato was writing about events that occured many centuries previous (and which had been recounted only orally) the possibility of exaggeration in the continual re-telling of the myth cannot be discounted.You see, I like to work with facts or, at least, theories with a high degree of scientific validity. I have seen neither in any of Mr Margiani's post so far.
1. I only said my university is good as well!
Yes… this is impossible to study in the Oxford and Cambridge. Only my University has enough level to explain that!
Im going to write plausible book about the sunken kingdom!
Wow! four pages and this thread is still going - lol.
Is it possible to zoom in further, so we can see the cities?
I'm looking for that all my life!
If serious, there is treasure of the mankind!
Carl - you raise some interesting points. Unfortunately I know nothing about geology.I shall digest the rest of what you wrote and regurgitate my musings on it later
