The Antediluvian Civilization Thesis
I would like to discuss this hypothesis, first establishing some agreed facts:
Hypothesis: There was a large coastal civilization which was flooded as the ice caps melted 10,000+ years ago.
Should we agree on facts?
- The sea level rose globally about 100 meters at the end of the last ice age.
- A continental size area of coast was submerged.
- Civilizations tend to flourish in coastal areas.
Do these facts support the Hypothesis?
Can we go slow and open with this talk please!
Reasons to believe this hypothesis:
- Civilizations are generally coastal.
