Evidence Accumulates for Ancient Transoceanic Voyages, Says Geographer

An expert’s journey across controversial gap in history of the New World

By Tara MacIsaac, Epoch Times| June 8, 2016 AT 1:47 PM

Theories on the fringe of science sometimes slowly work their way into the core as the evidence accumulates.

“A classic example is the continental drift [theory],” said cultural geographer Stephen C. Jett, professor emeritus at the University of California–Davis. “In 1955, if you believed in continental drift, you were laughed at. In 1965, if you didn’t believe in continental drift, you were laughed at.”

He was a geography student while this dramatic change in opinion occurred, and he took the example to heart. Encouraged by a professor of his at Johns Hopkins University, Jett started a decades-long investigation into another controversial theory.

Diffusionism

Mainstream anthropology and archaeology holds that Norse expeditions around 1000 A.D. were the only ones to make it to the New World before Christopher Columbus landed in the 15th century. But on the fringes are multiple theories about other successful pre-Columbian expeditions. These theories are placed under the umbrella of “diffusionism.” Continue reading Evidence Accumulates for Ancient Transoceanic Voyages, Says Geographer

Earliest Colonisation of Post-Flood Earth before Pangaea’s Division by Continental Drift & Hydro Planing

Dr. Walt Brown suspects and theorises that the division of the Earth’s continents by hydro-planing of the newly split crustal continents along the fault lines – now mid-oceanic rifts – to their present positions, took place immediately at the end of the Flood year!

If that would be so, then the question arises: How in the world did the megalith builders in Peru have time to build their first harbour and “Sungate temple” complex there in Tiahuanacu, which was originally at sea-level but got lifted several thousand meters up into the air, winding up as a salt water inland sea now called Lake Titicaca?

But IF the continents did not separate immediately after the Flood — as this writer suspects — then the earliest ship-builders (made of Lebanese cedars) and world explorers, sailors, and mappers, like Cham, Canaan, Neptune (Naptuhim), Mizraim (Zeus), Atlas, Poseidon and their sons, sailing from the earliest civilisation centers of the world, Sumer in Mesopotamia and Egypt in North Africa, who were the earliest colonisers, would not have had to cross large oceans to reach these budding civilisation centers, which we now call the Valdivia (Equador), Caral, & Nazca cultures, and the megalithic centers of Sacsayhuman in Peru, Puma Punku and Tiahuanacu near Lake Titicaca on the border with Bolivia. See how Earth would have  looked like just after the Flood’s super-critical water fountains had carved up Pangaea with kilometers wide and deep channels, before continental drift took place.

Why & How Did Earth’s Pangaea’s Crust Crack! An Ancient Mystery Solved?

The early Earth, we can safely assume, did not start out cracked like this egg from its pristine beginnings.

Scientists now agree that the early Earth featured just one original continent named ‘Pangaea’, reminiscent of Chinese history’s ‘Panku.’ Historians and geologists have no clue what actually hit the Earth’s crust, or how the upper layer of 8 km thick oceanic crust and 35-60 km continental crust got cracked, nor why its fragments or plates then began to drift apart from each other, other than labeling it ‘plate tectonics & subduction’. That’s about as good an explanation as blaming “why there are murders” on “violence.” It does not explain what cracked ‘Pangaea’ in the first place, which would also indicate the real cause of why the continents drifted apart!

This article aims to try to solve this foundational mystery: “Why and how did Pangaea’s crust crack!”
