Graham Hancock Just Announced The TERRIFYING Truth About Antarctica

Exploring Antarcticas Secret History: Graham Hancocks Theories on Ice-Free Maps

  • Graham Hancock has presented theories regarding Antarctica’s role in global climate processes and its importance to the Earth’s heat balance
  • He also points to several old maps, such as the Pirie Reese map and Oronteus Finaeus map, which show Antarctica before it was covered in ice
  • The accuracy of these maps suggest they were created with a level of technology not available until modern times
  • Hancock argues that these maps indicate that some parts of Antarctica had been navigated prior to 4000 BC.

Uncovering Antarcticas Ice-Free Past: Evidence of Ancient Maps and Advanced Civilization

  • The Orontius Phineas Map of Antarctica from 1531 is strikingly similar to modern maps
  • The map does not include ice shelves and glaciers, suggesting that it was created at a time when Antarctica was largely ice-free
  • Mathematical probability suggests that the map bears a striking resemblance to modern scientific maps
  • Coring of the Ross Sea in 1949 revealed sediment dating back to 4000 BC, further indicating that at one point the area was likely free of ice
  • Evidence suggests that ancient cartographers had access to highly developed seafaring civilizations with knowledge of projecting longitude and latitude
  • Giza Pyramids appear to be much older than previously thought, constructed with a level of technology later lost by subsequent generations.

Revealing the Ancient Origins of Our World: Examining Hancocks Theory and Unprecedented Climate Change in Antarctica

  • Hancock’s theory suggests a highly advanced civilization existed before 10,000 BC.
  • The mythology of ancient civilizations records geologic upheavals
  • Hancock believes the survivors of this advanced civilization fled their homeland and spread their knowledge to other parts of the world
  • Scientists have found evidence that in contrast to the dramatic sea ice losses reported in the Arctic, Antarctic sea ice cover is increasing due to climate change
  • Satellite observations demonstrate changes in sea ice drift around Antarctica with some regions experiencing a doubling while others decrease significantly.

Antarcticas Ever-Changing Ice Patterns Affect Research Stations

  • Antarctica’s overall ice extent has increased slightly
  • Regional increases and decreases are attributed to wind driven changes
  • McMurdo Station is a U.S research facility with a capacity of 1250 residents
  • Supplies are brought in by cargo ships once a year and personnel are flown in from Christchurch New Zealand and Argentina
  • Davis station has limited food supply which is rationed per person per year
  • Hydroponics is practiced at Davis station to add fresh produce to meals and serve as a sunroom for residents deprived of sunlight.

here we see Antarctica looking a littlebit different with mountains clearlyvisible along the coast and riversrunning down from those mountains it'shard to imagine Antarctica is anythingother than a freezing lifeless landscapethat has been like that since foreverthanks to the most popular photos of theplace however that mental image is alsodue to what we have all been told aboutthe continent a handful of Truth Seekersincluding prominent author GrahamHancock have been revealing whatAntarctica really is even though theiropinions are furiously opposed what isthe real truth about Antarctica and whathas Hancock found out about it in thisvideo we join Graham Hancock as hereveals the truth about AntarcticaAntarctica is one of the mostinteresting places on the planetalthough you must be a hearty soul tofind that out for yourself for startersthis place is crucial to Global Climateprocesses because it's an essentialcomponent of the Earth's heat balancethe heat balance also known as theenergy balance is the relationshipbetween how much solar heat is absorbedby the Earth's atmosphere and how muchheat is reflected back into spaceAntarctica plays a larger role inmaintaining Earth's heat balance thanmost other continents so anywhere youare in the world you're feeling theeffect of the cold place ice reflectsmore light than land or water surfacesthe vast antarctic ice sheet reflects asignificant amount of solar radiationaway from the Earth's surface thereflectivity of the Earth's surfacedecreases as globalized cover decreasesthis allows more incoming solarradiation to be absorbed by the Earth'ssurface resulting in an unequal heatbalance associated with a global warmingthe current phase of clay climate changeand the waters around Antarctica are animportant component of the oceanconveyor belt a global system in whichwater circulates around the globe basedon density and current Antarctic bottomwater the cold Waters surroundingAntarctica are so dense that they pushup against the ocean floor warmer Watersrise or up well as a result of theAntarctic bottom water Antarcticupwelling is so powerful that it aids inthe movement of water around the entireplanet strong winds that circumnavigateAntarctica Aid in this movement Earth'swaters would not circulate in a balancedand efficient manner without theassistance of the oceans surroundingAntarctica one of the published worksthat revealed the truth is by GrahamHancock in his book titled fingerprintsthat Gods the evidence of Earth's LostCivilization Hancock expounds on severalgroundbreaking theories about Antarcticaeven though they are opposed bymainstream scientists this is one of theugly truths about science that is oftenhidden from the public politics andscience this kind of scientific thinkingoften influences the results of researchin his tell-all book Hancock covers thedetails of a number of old Maps drawn upduring the 1500s the depict parts ofSouth America that were unknown toEuropeans at the time more intriguinglythey depicted the Antarctic Coast as itappears beneath the ice this was beforemen discovered Antarctica and seismicsurveys revealed what lay beneath theice the first map is known as the PirieReese map and is the most well-known andcontroversial this is because itthreatens to upend everything we've beentold about Antarctica for example oneExplorer James Cook passed through theAntarctic Circle in 1773 cook and hiscrew discovered land that had previouslybeen unknown while this Expedition isstill considered the first discovery ofthe continent the Perry Reese map showsthat that was not the case the map wasfirst discovered in Istanbul Turkeywhile cataloging the content ofIstanbul's topaki Palace Library GermanTheologian at Gustav Dyson and thepalace director discovered bundles ofmaps and charts hidden among piles ofdiscarded materials he quicklyrecognized the significance of thisdiscovery and brought it to an expert itwas immediately recognized as the Perryresmap so named after the medievalcartographer Perry Reese who signed thebottom what the map appeared to identifyhowever was even more intriguingAntarctica in addition to the usuallandmasses was present however thecontinent had only recently beendiscovered so what was it doing on a mapfrom 1513 periodottoman Turkish Admiral geographer andcartographer created a map of the worldas it was known at the time in 1513 Garyexplained in an inscription that thechart was based on about 20 other mapsincluding some drawn by ChristopherColumbus in the New World in PortugueseSpanish and Arabic Perry presented thepiriris map along with several othermaps and charts to ottoman Sultan psilimthe first in 1517 because it was basedon multiple other charts the sultanthought it was one of the most completemaps in the world at the time theperiris map is drawn on parchment madefrom gazelle skin the map which measuresapproximately 35 by 24 inches iscurrently in pieces but the survivingpieces depict various parts of the worldas they appeared to cartographers backin 1513 along with most of the usualplots of land the Pirie Reese mapincludes one that is particularlyinteresting the map shows the northerncoast Antarctica along the bottomhowever almost all historians agree thatthe continent was not discovered until1733 even more intriguing the continentis connected to South America and is notcovered in ice Captain Lorenzo WBurroughs a United States Air ForceCaptain with a background in cartographyconfirms the accuracy of the depictionof Antarctica and that it depicts thecontinent before it was covered in iceand while some scientists May balk atAntarctica being linked to South Americaanother historian has an explanation forwhy the two places are linked on thepiriris map burroughs's letter wasaddressed to Dr Charles hebgood aprofessor and historian who explainedthat in the past coastlines wereexaggerated in size to make detailseasier to see Coastal accuracy wasfrequently overlooked in the name ofthese details resulting in continentsthat appeared more connected the othermap Hancock talks about is the orontiusPhineas map also shows Antarctica as icefree this is another very ancient worldmap drawn by unknown people who are ableto use technology that we consider to beonly available in the modern day a closeexamination of the map reveals that thecreators knew the exact circumference ofthe earth to within 50 miles thecoastlines and Islands depicted inAntarctica must have been navigatedprior to 4000 BC when these areas werefree of ice from the previous ice ageaccording to Perry Reese's owncommentary some of his Source Maps dateback to Alexander the Great's reign in332 BC now a comparison of the orontiusPhineas map with the map of Antarctica'ssubglacial land surfaces produced bysurvey teams from various Nations duringthe international geophysical year 1958explains what some people claim areshortcomings of the ice-free Antarcticaorontius Phineas map while also sheddingsome light on the questions of theproblems extent of glacial conditions atthe time the original Maps would drawhowever in 1959 hapgod discovered anauthentic map in the Library of Congressthat immediately dispelled his doubts amap of what was certainly Antarcticadone in 1531 by the French cartographerorange fine also known as aronteusPhineas even at the most skeptical orshocked by the orontius Phineas map eventhough it was printed in a book in 1531and thus was not subject to subsequentAmendment it is strikingly similar toModern Antarctic Maps sure there is theargument that it's too close to SouthAmerica's tip but the proportions aresimilar the coastal mountains discoveredin a 1957 geophysical study are roughlyin the right places as are many bays andrivets furthermore the shape of SouthAmerica is correct and there is astriking resemblance between a modernscientifically exact map of the Ross seaand phineas's around unnamed golf butthe orontius Phineas map remarkably doesnot show the great ice shelves that nowsurround the continent nor the greatglaciers that Fringe the coastal regionsinstead there appears to be estuariesand inlets implying large rivers thatmeant that at some point in the past theRoss sea and its coasts the site of theNovember 1979 air disaster on MountErebus and some of Antarctica'sHinterland were free of ice it alsoproves that because the Antarctic wasundoubtedly icebound in 1531 whenaronteus Phineas made his map the mappermust have had access to very ancientmaps maps made when Antarctica waslargely free of the mild thick ice capthat now engulfs it and has presumablycovered it for Millennia there's alsothe perplexing question of the orontiusPhineas map to contend with even ifPirie Reese's Antarctica is SouthAmerica even Australia phineas'sAntarctica is unmistakably andAntarctica and his map was also drawn inthe 16th century 1531 so where didorontius Phineas get his far moredetailed and accurate information fromwas it the alexandrian library is nowsubmerged beneath the waves also whydoes Phineas depict Antarctica withoutan ice cap in addition hapgood's teamidentified 50 geographical points on thereprojected Phineas map whose latitudesand longitudes were located quiteaccurately in latitude and longitudesome of which quite close to the polethe mathematical probability of thisbeing an accident is astronomical theRoss sea is another piece of evidencetoday it is fed by Massive glaciersforming a floating ice shelf hundreds offeet thick nonetheless both this map andthe resmap show estuaries and rivers onthe site coring was done in 1949 tocollect samples of the ice and sedimentat the bottom of the Ross sea theyclearly showed several layers ofstratification indicating that the areaexperienced numerous environmentalchanges some of the sediments were ofthe type that Rivers typically transportto the Sea tests performed the CarnegieInstitute in Washington DC which dateradioactive elements found in seawaterdated the sediment at around 4000 BCimplying that the area was ice-free andhad flowing Rivers at the time exactlywhat is recorded on the Reese andorontius Phineas Maps most likely fromthe alexandrian libraries all of thesemap makers Drew on Old maps that theyhad compiled Perry Reese for example hadaccess to constantinople's ImperialLibrary which is likely where heobtained the sources for his map andanother amazing aspect of these old Mapsis that they frequently show locationsin South America for example a preciselongitude and latitude so how did thisend up or not one but at least four Mapseither our known his history of humanson this planet is incorrect our historyof our planet's development is incorrectthere were highly developedcivilizations on Earth that we areignoring because it does not fit intothe established Norm all the ancientmaps that predated these and were usedas references were done by aliencartographers or someone drawing ourplanet from the air however Hancock'stake away from these Maps is as followswhatever Source Maps Peri reason toothers used had to have been created bya sophisticated seafaring civilizationthat had explored the world andunderstood how to project longitude andlatitude what is most amazing is thatthese Sailors mathematicians chartedAntarctica when it was not completelycovered in ice that in a nutshell istheir civilization extremely old Hancockalso addresses another ancient subjectthat has been just as mysterious hedevotes 10 chapters to the Incan and preand civilizations including the NASCARlines the incredible complex at LakeTiticaca and the tradition that linksthese to a bearded culture bringer theVera culture who came from the sea morechapters describe at Central Americancultures including their obsession withthe numbers calculating exact dates inthe distant past and future andpredicting the end of the worldincluding by human sacrifice they'realso accomplished astronomers the hateotuacan pyramid complex for exampleappears to have been designed as a scalemodel of the solar system Hancock alsotouches on Egyptian history there arenumerous things to take note of here area few examples the ancient Egyptiancivilization appears to have appearedout of nowhere as a high civilizationcomplete with myths history engineeringand a boat Obsession overall its historyhas been one of gradual decline and lossof knowledge rather than scheduleaccumulation Hancock points out that theGiza Pyramids do not match the pyramidsthat were supposed to have been builtimmediately before and after them theyare far more robust and sophisticatedthan the Alternatives the point is if weaccept the accepted chronology theEgyptians built some relatively lowquality pyramids then some amazinglygood ones a few Generations later beforereturning to building relatively lowquality pyramids Again by roller coasterof technological advancement Hancockcontends that the Giza Pyramids are mucholder than previously thought they wereconstructed using knowledge ortechnology that was later lost themediocre pyramids are attempts toreplicate the ones at Giza Hancockwrites that Robert beauval's evidenceshowed that the three pyramids at Gizawere an unbelievably precise terrestrialmap of the three stars of Orion's Beltaccurately reflecting the angles betweeneach of them and even providing someindication of their individualmagnitudes furthermore this map extendednorth and south to include several otherstructures on the Giza Plateau the Gizamonuments were arranged in such a waythat they provided a picture of theSkies as they appeared and only as theyappeared around the year 10 450 BC theGreat Pyramid of Giza has a 2 pi ratiobetween its original height and itscircumference this supports the theorythat it was meant to represent a star ora circle the height to basecircumference ratio of teotawakon'spyramid of the sun is four Pi both ofthese pyramids had to have an unusualangle of slope to achieve this 52degrees for gizen 43.5 degrees for tailto wacken so it appears to have beendeliberate Pai was allegedly notcalculated correctly until Archimedes inthe 3rd Century BC but it appears theancient Egyptians and Mexicans wereaware of it Hancock's point is thatpeople on both sides of the Atlanticinherited their incredible engineeringmathematical and astronomical Knowledgefrom older sources or civilizations hebelieves it was the same as seafaringcivilization the mapped Antarctica thisimpression is reinforced by the Egyptianobsession with boats as well as theIncan legends that claim all knowledgecame from the sea Hancock contends thata highly Advanced civilization existedwell before 10 000 BC however he doesn'tsay whether these people were taught byalien Spirits or something else thisleaves us with a problem where was itthis civilization normally Advancedcivilizations do not emerge until acritical mass of arable land is reachedin a nutshell a continent Hancockbelieves he has found a solution to thisproblem he believes there was one such amess of land but it was destroyed by acataclysm and now we get to the reallyinteresting part of his thesis themythology rounding ancient cataclysms isa universal Hancock's book devotes fourchapters to this subject alone floodmyths for example a widespread of mostcultures however also record earthquakesfire falling from the sky the Sun notRising for an extended period of time oran endless winter Hancock delves intomyths from the following cultures indepth Aztec Sumerian Greek Inuit ChineseSoutheast Asian Pacific Indian EgyptianMayan Norse some cultures for examplethe Aztecs and the hope he believedtheir natural disasters occur at regularintervals that each one ushers in a newage of the world Hancock believes thatthese myths are historical records withall the usual caveats about thembecoming garbled and so forth of aperiod of geologic upheaval in humanhistory he writes that hapgood developedthis geological theory which AlbertEinstein supported it suggests that ourplanet's 30 mile thick lithospherescompletely slipped over its nearly 8 000mile thick Central core forcing largeparts of the Western HemisphereSouthward towards the equator and thento the Antarctic Circle this movement isviewed as pivoting around the centralplains of what is now the United Statesrather than following a straight Northto South Meridian as a result thenortheastern segment of North Americawhere the North Pole was previouslylocated in Hudson's Bay and large partsof Siberia which were dragged into theArctic Circle were dragged southwardsout of the Arctic Circle hapgud's modelin the southern hemisphere depicts thelandmass now known as Antarctica much ofwhich was previously at temperate oreven warm latitudes being shiftedentirely inside the Antarctic Circle theoverall movement is thought to have beenin the region of 30 degrees or about 2000 miles and concentrated primarilybetween the years 14 500 BC and 12 000to 500 BC but with a massive half toshocks on a planetary scale continuingat widely separated intervals down toabout 9500 BC according to Hancock'sTheory the survivors of this Advancedcivilization that once existed in whatis now Antarctica fled their Homelandtaking their science with them theymoved to other parts of the world andattempted to rebuild Hancock alsobelieves that they deliberately plantedmyths and Cults in order to preserveknowledge and draw people's attention tothe processional cycle of theconstellations in order to warn themthey believed that geological disasterslike this happened in Cycles in tandemwith celestial events he believes thatthis is why the pyramids were built forexampleanother popular idea is that climatechange
