^ This is turning funny. You believers can make a story sounds pretty interesting, if it fits your imagination. Plato (the “author” of Atlantis) placed it in front of Estrecho de Gibraltar (Hercules pillars on greek myth), that is, just out of the mediterranean ocean, entering the Atlantic.

I quit the game! ;)

EDIT : honestly, accepting we are imaginating and not talking about history, i would prefer the legend of aliens giving egyptians special knowledges…

Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvr1Emc9xrA Massive man made structure under the sea in Japan, said to be 14 000 years old when the sea was much lower. Interesting stuff.

Parts of Japan moved a few meters only in the last magnitude 9 earthquake this year. :)

So what are you saying? That structure is 20 metres under the ocean in Japan.

I don’t know if you guys have watched the movie Idiocracy :D, but its funny theory looks reasonable to me… more the humans stay on heart and more they become stupid, so it’s reasonable to think that 5000 years ago people was more smart than now… we seem smarter only because we’re collecting more and more tech discoveries year after year to help us in the complex stuff, but especially on the simple ones.

It’s pretty true, I think when humans started out we had a connection and respect for the earth and its people/animals. But over time we become self destructive, greedy, start wars with each other and destroy our own planet gradually – which is exactly what is happening right now. We think we’re smart, we think we’re the most advanced we have ever been, but I think the earth has been destroyed many times before – whole civilizations wiped out and knocked back to the stone age each time, with ancient technologies lost only to be rediscovered much later.

^ No enough evidence but I feel the same. Human beings are definitely smarter by gene but not enough as a social group with possibility of continuous growth and to stay safer from self destructive activities (or to beat natural disasters). Looking at the speed of technological advancements happening for the past few centuries, it seems atleast 10% of similar advancements possibly happened many times within latest 25k years. One of the conceptual proof is same level of advancements (on certain things) that happened simultaneously among different races without communication between each other.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened

Plenty of evidence, you just need to research.. check out the ruins of Pumapunku one of the oldest monuments on earth, and they have no idea how they cut these stones. Also shows signs of tool marks and drilling holes etc into dyarite stone which is the second hardest stone to diamond, which means they would need to use tools tipped with diamonds to cut the stones. With modern machinery they would not be able to achieve the same level of cutting and precision. And this temple was supposedly built by stone age people with basic tools? Not possible, they had advance technology to be able to cut stones of this hardness and size. The quarry where these stones weighing up to 130 tons were mined is 10 miles from the site which is on top of a mountain, so that also raises the question how they got these stones there in the first place ;)
