DISCOVERED in 1999, Israel forbade the recovery of an old Phoenician ship wreck although they were outside of their territorial waters, but then the law changed and then acc. to the US State Department it was in Egyptian territorial waters and they said that Egypt would forbid the access & recovery of the ship for “Egyptian security reasons” Sure!!! See how important this is to hijacked Academia?
First the Israelis, then the Egyptians got the warning from the Intl. Darwinian Academics to make the recovery of the ship impossible. I don’t believe it has anything to do with politics or territorial waters, but it is all about proof of Phoenicians leaving the coasts for over 30 miles which is contrary to the “official academic policy” that the Phoenicians never left sight of the coast, and therefore “NEVER crossed the Atlantic Ocean.” Ha! You can’t fight city hall!

ARCHAEOLOGY: Signs of ancient Seafarers: 2,500-year-old Phoenician ships discovered off Israel’s coast
Sun | Nation & World
TEL AVIV, Israel – Phoenician mariners sailed more than 2,500 years ago into the uncertain waters of the Mediterranean, praying to their storm god for a successful voyage – only to meet death in a fierce tempest.
Now, American explorer Robert Ballard has located their two ships – the world’s oldest known deep-water sea wrecks – using the same techniques he used to find the Titanic.
The vessels’ cargo – large ceramic containers of wine – was probably headed to the Pharaoh’s table in Egypt or to the Phoenician colony of Carthage in present-day Tunisia, Ballard said at a news conference Wednesday in which he announced the discovery.
The ships’ contents indicate they set sail from the Phoenician port of Tyre – now a city in Lebanon – around 750 B.C. Both vessels were transporting hundreds of ceramic jugs, called amphorae, filled with wine.
Remarkably, the amphorae were found intact, stacked snugly in rows, unlike the shards typically unearthed on land. Archaeologist Lawrence Stager, one of several Harvard University scientists on Ballard’s team, said the discovery of the pristine jugs “was one of our greatest moments.”
The ships also were almost perfectly preserved – a result of the bitterly cold deep-sea waters, where sunlight cannot reach, the pressure is intense and sediment scarcely accumulates.
Ballard said the ocean’s deepest waters are capable of suspending history in time.
“Human history lost in the high seas is waiting to be discovered,” said Ballard, who was propelled to fame by his 1985 discovery of the ocean liner Titanic.
Ballard, a former Naval officer and oceanographer, uncovered the Phoenician vessels about 30 miles off Israel with the aid of an underwater robot, deep-water tracking equipment and a global positioning satellite.
The vessels were discovered sitting upright at a depth of about 1,500 feet.
Ballard said the deep-sea route used by the two vessels was not previously known as one traveled by Phoenicians. The explorer said he hopes to find more ancient wrecks along the same path.
One ship is approximately 60 feet long and the other – located about two miles away – measures 45 feet.
The vessels may have been part of a fleet of cargo ships on consignment, Stager said. Stone anchors were found, as well as crockery, a wine decanter and incense stands for offering prayers to the weather gods.
Incense offerings were made at the beginning and end of every voyage, Stager said, but desperate sailors might also have used the incense stands during the violent storm that sank the boats.
Based on the pots and crockery found aboard, Stager said he believed there were about a half-dozen sailors on each ship, and that fish stew would have been a typical meal for the crew.
Ballard said the two vessels were the first intact Phoenician ships ever found. He said they will serve as primary research material for historians and archaeologists, who until now had to rely on classical texts and the Bible for information about Phoenician shipping. Phoenicians were a seafaring people who lived along the Levantine coast for about 2,000 years, beginning in 2,300 B.C.
Stager said the findings were preliminary, noting that the expedition ship had just docked Tuesday night. More will be revealed in the coming months when the artifacts are brought to Harvard for study, he said.
Ballard’s expedition was sponsored by the National Geographic Society, the U.S. Office of Naval Research and an Israeli archaeological institute.
Ballard, whose childhood hero was Captain Nemo of Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea,” said the answer to many of history’s mysteries could be found under the sea.
“A lot of history books will be rewritten from what we are finding in the deep seas,” Ballard said.
So, dear reader, do you understand how history is being warped, obfuscated, suppressed, and hijacked by the Darwinians? Why? Because “the Phoenicians were too stupid to cross the oceans as they were a mere recent improvement on cavemen getting on simple ships with simple navigation skills… and could NEVER cross the oceans”.
WHICH IS PATENTLY FALSE! Phoenician inscriptions have been found in South America and Phoenician archeological artifacts and locations were found in North and South America.
