Hi, Brazil~!

or

Hy Brasil …

any the wiser now? Not yet. Let me explain:

I’m a self-confessed CT nutcase. So  whatever you call me it’s been said before.

Moving on—

IN THE SIXTIES

a professor at an American university did some sums after he’d suffered a rush of eurekas. He’d been poring over ye olde sea-maps …

Knowing that his conclusions would upset the current ‘experts’ he wrote his book anyway. So there.

Before publishing he asked an obscure kraut crank to check it out; kraut* gave it quite an endorsement. He then went ahead, was predictably soundly rubbished (and eventually I purchased a reprint).

I added his info to some of the other bits I’ve garnered; thinking how unfortunate it was that he had to do his sums the old way with slide-rules and had no computers, calculators, Google Maps etc. My good fortune …

IN A NITSHELL

Roughly 12000 years ago an ice-age ended. Various icery  (two miles thick in places) melted sending enough water downhill to raise the then sea levels by about four hundred feet-ish. (Doggerland went from forests to seabed.) So?

SO

Hapgood noted similarities in many of his old maps, similar mistakes even. Not only puffy winds and mermaids, but actual navigational things. Here’s a selection for you, see if you notice ’em too—this first being hardly fair, a real toughie …

With all these clues it’s hard not to notice …

Are we there yet?

Here’s one that seems a bit dated …finger-pointing-down

And they all have something in common:

That ‘something’ being a wee island group that doesn’t exist. So trying to find it using Google Maps, we come up with this—

Which when you blow it up, looks like this—

—which coupled with the old legends and maps … is spooky.

(Or not, I’m off now ‘cos The Spouse gets cranky if I don’t come running when she yodels about dinner …)

PS:

by the way … aforementioned kraut crank was one Albert Einstein (famous for doing things with atoms and clocks).

    1. I have no idea. Don’t even know how deep the area. But as far as lost ‘civilisations’ go there’s no shortage. Of special interest to me is Yonaguni, off Japan. We nutters have a field day with that one, boom boom!

      1. Possibly … I was referring to the offshore undersea scenery. Unique. Nutters aside, it does raise quite a few questions. I just pulled this in, and haven’t seen it all yet but thought I’d recommend it anyway as an intro—

        —five and a bit minutes long; good luck. (There’s a brief interlude between very strong currents at every change of tide.)
