Map

RIDDLE ME THIS BATMAN:

In 1929, a map was found on a dusty shelf in a library in Constantinople. It’s known as the Pire Reis Map. How is it that the map shows features of the earth that “nobody in 1513 should have been able to know” even existed? 

Prior to the 18th Century, sailors ran the risk of crashing their ships into rocky coastlines because they lacked the ability to calculate longitude. A clock for measuring longitude was not invented until 250 years AFTER the drawing of the map, that still manages to somehow chart the southern tips of Africa and South America to within a 1/2 a degree of accuracy. Ready for the real kicker? 

GUESS WHAT?

The author of the map states that the map was a compilation of other source maps available at the time, some of which dated back to the time of Christ. 

SO… HOW WAS SOMEONE ABLE TO MEASURE AND MAP WITH SUCH A DEGREE OF ACCURACY THAT THE PRECISION RIVALS THE BEST TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE TODAY, WHEN NONE OF THE TECHNOLOGY HAD BEEN INVENTED YET?

Also completely shredding the theories and teachings of modern “science” and academia, is the fact that the map accurately shows Antarctica exactly as it is… under the ice. You know why modern “science” stays quiet on all these issues of ancient sites I keep posting about? Because they are full of sh** and they know it. Here’s why THIS time. The last time the arctic icecap was not present, was millions of years ago… yet we have an exact map? That’s a bit hard to do I would think if man didn’t even exist until five to six thousand years ago. Hmmm… did hey have planes then with ground penetrating radar? No, none of those around then either… so which is it?

1. Was there a race or civilization here before we were, and if so, why is everything about them systematically covered up? You might find some answers to this question in, Genesis Chapter 6: The Return of the Mighty Nephilim Parts 1,2,3.

2. If we (modern humans) weren’t here, and there were no other species on the earth, like GIANTS, then who was and where in the heck did they come from? Are they still here?

 

I SUPPOSE MODERN SCIENCE WILL TELL US ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS WITHOUT THE ADVENT OF THE WHEEL AND WEARING NO MORE THAN MERE LOIN CLOTHS SOMEHOW DID ALL THIS WITH ROPES AND PULLEYS TOO?

What;’s really sad, is that I suspect if modern “science” DID tell us that, few would even question it, no matter how asinine the argument is. So, I’ll ask what I’ve been continuing to ask for some time now: What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

The Following is from a post titled, Egypt’s Great Pyramid at Giza Not Oldest Pyramid on Earth Anymore:

According to conventionally acknowledged historical wisdom, the first signs of a “civilized” society appearing on this planet occurred approximately 5,000 years ago around 3,000BC in a land known then as Sumer (present day Iraq). From this original hub of early civilization sprang forth modern day cultures and societies, and since then a documented account of conventional history has been formulated and established.

But what if our historians got it completely wrong?

The Piri Reis Map

In 1929, a group of historians, whilst searching old documents in Constantinople, found a map on a dusty old shelf hidden away in the archives. It had been painstakingly created on a piece of gazelle skin.

Research has since confirmed that it is a genuine document drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet during the sixteenth century.

His passion was cartography. His high rank within the Turkish navy allowed him privileged access to the  Imperial  Library of Constantinople, from whence he obtained ancient source maps which enabled him to compile an archeological wonder, today known as the Piri Reis Map.

The Turkish admiral admits in a series of notes he wrote on the map that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated way back to the fourth century BC and much earlier.

The Piri Reis Map

The map was of immediate interest as it accurately portrayed the coastlines of South America and Africa, at their correct relative longitudes and latitudes. As the map was dated 1513, only 21 years after the official discovery of the Americas by Columbus in 1492, it seemed improbable that the map was compiled from cartographical data obtained by Columbus. The legend on the map itself in fact, gave it a source far older than 20 years, revealing that it was a section of a world map composed from more than twenty source maps, some drawn in the time of Alexander the great.

Despite the mystifying problem that the map included accurate longitude measurements – a task deemed impossible until the invention of the chronometer in 1760, there was something else displayed on the map that made its origin and history even more perplexing.

The Piri Reis map, in addition to accurately charting the coastlines of western Africa and eastern south America also included a third continent in its cartography. This map accurately portrays the coastline of Antarctica – a continent supposedly undiscovered until 1820, over 300 years after the maps creation!

However, the mystery doesn’t end there. Not only did the map illustrate accurately the coastline of Antarctica, it illustrated the coastline when the continent was ice free. Only recently, with the aid of satellite technology and GPS mapping, have science and cartographers managed to accurately plot the actual coastline of Antarctica minus the ice. However, if one were to superimpose the Piri Reis map over a modern map of an ice free Antarctic coastline, one would find the outlines almost identical.

But this presents a massive problem for historians. According to recent geological surveys of ice samples taken from Antarctica, the last time it was free of ice was between 6,000 and 12,000 years ago. So whoever created the source maps used by Piri Reis, must have had detailed knowledge of not just the area during this period – a period when, according to mainstream historical accounts, advanced civilizations did not exist – but advanced knowledge of navigation, cartography, and sophisticated mathematics.

Furthermore, not only did the source maps accurately depict latitude and longitude, but also included a mercatorial projection. A mercatorial projection is a geometric formula used to account for a 3D globe being represented as a 2D image. Such high levels of geometry had not been seen since the time of the Greeks and it was not until the work of Gerald Mercator in 1569, that European’s began to include a projection for the curvature of the earth into their maps.

In all probability, the discovery of the Piri Reis map should completely discredit mainstream historical accounts of the origins of modern civilization. Moreover, historians of integrity should be questioning official accounts and investigating the possibility that hitherto unknown highly advanced societies most likely existed thousands of years before our current historical accounts were formulated.

In the video below, there is a brief portion of a special done by the History Channel that deals with three ancient discoveries that baffle modern science known as The Antikythera Device, The Baghdad Battery, The Piri Reis Map. You can check out posts on the other topics in the video at, Six Ancient Discoveries Science Can’t Explain – What is the Antikythera Mechanism?  It talks about what the The Antikythera Device and the The Baghdad Battery is.

The Mind Unleashed Writes:

If conventional wisdom on the history of the human race is correct, then human civilization is not old enough, nor was it advanced enough, to account for many of the mysterious monolithic and archeological sites around the world. Places like Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, the Bosnian Pyramids, and Adam’s Calendar in South Africa, beg the same question: if human civilization is supposedly not old enough to have created all of these sites, then who, or what, had the capacity to create so many elaborate structures around the globe?

It is clear that our understanding of our own history is incomplete, and there is plenty of credible evidence pointing to the existence of intelligent and civilized cultures on Earth long before the first human cultures emerged from the Middle East around 4000BC. The Admiral Piri Reis world map of 1513 is part of the emerging more complete story of our history, one that challenges mainstream thinking in big ways.

Mapmaking is a complex and civilized task, thought to have emerged around 1000BC with the Babylonian clay tablets. Antarctica was officially first sighted by a Russian expedition in 1820 and is entirely covered in ice caps thought to have formed around 34-45 million years ago. Antarctica, therefore, should not be seen on any map prior to 1820, and all sighted maps of Antarctica should contain the polar ice caps, which are supposedly millions of years old.

A world map made by Ottoman cartographer and military admiral, Piri Reis, casts some doubt on what we think we know about ancient civilization.

The Piri Reis map, which focuses on Western Africa, the East Coast of South America, and the North Coast of Antarctica, features the details of a coastline that many historians and geologists believe represents Queen Maud Land, that is, Antarctica. Remarkably, as represented in this map, the frigid continent was not covered in ice caps, but, rather, with dense vegetation. How could a map drawn in 1513 feature a continent that wasn’t discovered until 1820? And if the continent had in fact been discovered by one of the civilizations known to have emerged after 4000BC, why were the ice caps not on the map?

The paradoxes presented by the map were of little significance to the world until Charles Hapgood, a history professor from New Hampshire, USA, claimed that the information in the Piri Reis map supported a different view of geology and ancient history. Hapgood believed that the map verified his global geological theory, which explains how portions of Antarctica could have remained ice-free until 4000BC.

Hapgood’s presentation is so convincing that even famed theoretical physicist and philosopherAlbert Einstein wrote the following supportive forward to a book that Hapgood wrote in 1953:

“His idea is original, of great simplicity, and – if it continues to prove itself – of great importance to everything that is related to the history of the Earth’s surface.” -Albert Einstein

Map 2

Unquestionably not a hoax, the map is certifiably authentic, but the information on the map is of mysterious origin. Piri Reis himself notes that the map was drawn from information sourced from other, older maps, charts and logs, many of which, Hapgood suggests, may have been copied and transcribed repeatedly since before the destruction of the Library of Alexandria in Egypt, which wiped out the literature of antiquity and vast cultural knowledge.

This hypothesis opens the door to the possibility that some forgotten ancient civilization had the capacity to voyage to the Antarctic, charting the earth, with the technology to make maps, sometime before the ice caps formed. A significant departure from our present understanding of our history.

The absence of the ice caps in the Piri Reis map is peculiar, and in 1960 Hapgood brought his theories on this to the attention of the United States Air Force. Hapgood asked, among other things, if the shape of the continent, as it appeared on the Piri Reis map, was at all similar to the shape of the continent under the ice, as revealed by recent Air Force testing of seismic data on the continent. Their answer was astonishing:

“…the geographical detail shown in the lower part of the map agrees very remarkably with the results of the seismic profile made across the top of the ice-cap by the Swedish-British Antarctic Expedition of 1949.

This indicates the coastline had been mapped before it was covered by the ice-cap.

The ice-cap in this region is now about a mile thick.

We have no idea how the data on this map can be reconciled with the supposed state of geographical knowledge in 1513.

If Hapgood’s theory has merit, as even Einstein believed, then there was a period of time from around 13000BC to 6000BC when Antarctica was located more closely to the equator and was more tropical in climate, much like parts of South America. This was caused by a sudden shift of the earth’s entire lithosphere, he theorized, simultaneously moving all of the continents into their present position, a much different view than the widely accepted explanation offered the plate tectonics theory.

If Antarctica had indeed been further North then than it presently is, and was not covered in ice only as recently as 6000BC, then who was around back then that could have mapped it, long before any known civilizations? And who could have done so long before the advent of the marine chronometer in the 18th century, which finally solved the problem of accurately tracking longitude on the high seas?

Had the entire Earth already been mapped by 4000BC, by a civilization that has been forgotten, as analysis of the Piri Reis map and the theories of Charles Hapgood suggest?

 

As I always say, I don’t profess to have the answers any more than I profess to have a good enough understanding of physics to understand how to get to space, but I have enough common sense to know if someone tells me to keep flapping my arms and I’ll get there, that they’re full of crap. Same thing here.

The following posts are part of a series that hypothesizes that the New World Order/Illuminati/Bilderberg’s are behind the biggest cover-up in human history by robbing us of the knowledge. What’s unknown is WHY? Each part gives a different possibility as to what might be the underlying reason for keeping humanity in the dark. To the best of my knowledge, only the global elites would have the influence and he reach to keep things this big hushed up even though the party line makes as much sense as my example about flapping my arms.
