    The thing about arguing the structure is natural because it is one solid stone is simply supplemental evidence at best. Especially when you can go to Africa and India and find entrance cultures that are also carved out of a single rock. Some from the top down. It’s not too crazy to think that these people built their homes and civilization into the rock instead of on top of it

    Honestly some of these claims like the garden of Eden one are a bit much but this does match up with multiple accounts from throughout the centuries of people. Also if Atlantis was destroyed buy a rapid change in water level It would make sense that other places felt that and similar issues as well. What’s interesting about this account is there are some Polynesian stories of Hawaiians leaving to a place that sounds like Alaska or the arctic and then returning many years later after the disaster.

    11:47 ".. accumulate over millennia which means stalactites can only form in caves that are above ground so if you find stalactites in a cave system under the ocean they can be dated to give you a precise point in history when the cave was last on dry land". Really? How does that work? Surely the length of the stalactites can only give you an idea of how long it took them to form, not how long ago it was when that formation took place. A stalactite that is 50mm long, say, will still be 50mm long a million years later if nothing is happening during those million years which would add to or subtract from the length.

    The lost continent is Africa when the Sahara went from green to desert. We just mistranslate what people wrote back then and think “sea” is referring to a sea of water but it’s actually referring to the sea of sand that swallowed up an entire land mass that was once green and habitable 12,000 years ago

    Hey thoughty, I like your videos but have noticed one thing. I'm sure your intention is to present the facts and let your viewers develop their opinions but I've seen a few videos this one included where the way in which you present the information, has a decent impact on in almost saying outright what to believe. It's a slight condescending tone that makes the information you don't agree with sound silly and bullshit. Just thought you might want to know. Thanks for the hard work and keep making your videos. 👍

    Why is it in these programmes that they never mention the real numbers , Like the split in genetics to us was 10 million years ago , We have been here as humans for around 200,000 years,. we have no proof and never will have of what our ancestors were capable of, There is an ICE age every 63,000 years that covers the northern hemi sphere , so that means we have lived through 4 ice ages as modern humans, Everything we have built today would all be gone and nothing left after 3000 years (we don't build in granite)

    The Sphinx is older than 5000 years- painfully obvious since the corrupt politics of Egypt try to hide that and for decades refuse to let people prove it more

  • Some Dandy

    I actually think Schoch and Hancock are on to something with their Ancient Sphinx theory. For one. The head of the Pharaoh is REALLY small compared to the lion body beneath. Secondly: the Sphinx was buried in sand until Napoleon, so the erosion on the Sphinx was likely not caused by long-term wind exposure. And third (more of a cool tidbit): The Sphinx faces the point in the sky where the spring equinox rises, and if the lion were built as a statue to Leo, that may imply that the equinox sun rose in the Leo constellation, implying it was built during the Age of Leo, putting it roughly 10,000 years back.

    I usually like your videos but you leave out a lot of well known data that I doubt you overlooked, rather more likely omitted to make Schock and Hancock look like idiots and confirm your own bias. I doubt you've read any literature from either of them, as it's very well put together, well referenced and makes strong arguments for civilization being much older than is academically accepted. Kind of a bummer and I'm not going to be as likely to click on your next video

    Just like every paradigm throughout history, it’s always taken people brandished as pseudoscientists or worse to truly bring forth a change in mainstream belief. Regarding our ancient past, we truly know so little, and our mainstream archeologists tend to base their findings off of very little evidence and have theories full of massive holes. I strongly suggest looking into the works of Graham Hancock such as magicians of the gods and you will get a better picture of the reality of how our past is much different than we recognize. Check out the channel Uncharted X. Ben goes into detail on these topics of ancient history that many naively play out to be simple pseudoscience. The younger dryas impact event was what caused that massive rise in sea level you speak of, not gradual sea level rise. Whether Yonoguni is manmade or not, you need to look deeper into this topic. Being the academic that you are, you’ll be astounded by the true lack of thought that these mainstream archaeologists put forth to come to many of these conclusions we consider fact today. Far too often academia likes to go in with a closed mind and inability to consider that their theory on our past may be wrong as well. A conversation needs to be had, but academic close mindedness is in the way of that. Don’t add to it, look deeper
