The most interesting aspect, to me, about these, so called, ancient maps, is the idea that they were reported to be drawn up before Columbus sailed to the Western Hemisphere. This would seem to point toward a more advanced civilization in the past than we thought existed, and a civilization that had ventured out to the Western Hemisphere long before Columbus.
The fact that the oldest and largest stone megalith constructions are in South America (Peru), seems odd, considering mankind, it is believed, crossed into North America 10,000 years ago, and, according to archaeological thinking, waited till they reached Peru, around 1,000 AD, to move 300 plus ton stones around. Hapgood's theory about ancient maps could be a possible explanation for how a civilization arrived in South America well before Columbus, perhaps 10,000 years ago. The megaliths of the Western World seem to be a thorn in the side of scientific theories, but by placing them in the civilizations which they were found, most megalith structures are explained away, which I find more convenient than scientific, but, with free thinkers, such as, Charles Hapgood, Graham Hancock, Robert Schoch, Eric Von Danyken (yes even Danyken) and many others on the sleuth, maybe an explanation is near. The search for past advanced civilizations is very exciting, and those engaged in that search should be commended not condemned.Read more ›
Hapgood's book about the ancient maps and his theory of crustal shift remain just as valid and plausible today as when he wrote them. His ideas have not been successfully debunked. It is true that he has been passed over -- and often dismissed. But the reason is not because the maps and his theory of crustal shift have been disproved. They haven't.
In my opinion science has passed over his work because the implications for our civilization are so horrific. It's easy to see why this could be so. Even Hapgood himself didn't want to face the logical conclusion of the wholesale mammoth and mastadon extinction in Siberia and Alaska at the end of the Pleistocene. Something killed those animals by the millions and quick froze them in vast muck beds -- so that ten thousand years later the meat was still edible. This is fact -- not conjecture. But the crunch is the flowers and other temperate zone vegetation found in their mouths. The animals were eating and were killed suddenly where they stood. Hapgood preferred to argue that the crustal shift occurred slowly -- over a thousand years or more. But the evidence suggests that it was a very rapid event -- a cataclysm.
The maps today remain, just as Hapgood claimed -- necessary and sufficient evidence that a high civilization existed on earth long long before Sumer and ancient Egypt. The question is what happened to it?
Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings is essential reading for anyone interested in the untold story of our human origins.
