Little by little, or rather, century by century, the northern part of the present Altiplano and mountain ranges rose aarthur a result of the cessation of the aforementioned weight of the ice, and it was then that there was produced an initial inclination which drained the first great glacial lake.

It would involve a long discussion to enter into details about this aspect and we wish only to touch on it lightly because of its great interest.

W hen the S ky F ell: The idea of an Antarctic civilisation was also part of another novel, A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder [ ]by the Canadian author, James De Millepublished posthumously in Later in that decade he made his first visit to Tiahuanaco.

He was especially interested in those found along the shoreline and on the islands of Lake Titicaca. Robert Rengifo was a little known Chilean professor who flourished in the early decades of the 20th century. In order to know the difference in the obliquity posnnansky the ecliptic of that time, and today, it would be necessary to know in the first place, how great is the amplitude of the sun marked on this temple and other data which we shall enumerate at once.

It is evident beyond a doubt that the inhabitants of Tihuanacu knew animals now extinct, which they reproduced faithfully by stylizing them on their ceramics and other plastic works. His ideas were enthusiastically received back in Nazi Germany.

His attention was drawn even further south to Antarctica where he controversially concluded that man had originated rather than Africa.

Later, when the inhabitants of the Peninsula came to the Altiplano, new excavations in search of hidden treasure were carried out on a large scale. Set up My libraries How do I set up “My libraries”? Inhis government service continued when he was elected to La Paz City Council. The results of these investigations were published in books such as The Islands of Titicaca and Koati and Rasas y monumentos prehistoricos del Altiplano Andino.


Still later, in the period in which these ruins served as a quarry for the construction of the church in the modern village of Tihuanacu, the rest of the alluvia which still covered the ruins was removed. He also described the ruins of Tiwanaku as bearing the traces of a great cataclysm, which he concluded was how the city had been destroyed and abandoned.

He later wrote a brief refutation of the Antarctic theory aa. They perceived clear evidence of a global catastrophe in the tenth millennium BC in worldwide myths.

Only after conceiving the idea of investigating the age of these remains of human activity in prehistoric America, the most notable ruins which have come down to us, and using astronomical resources to this end, has a slight ray of light penetrated this mystery.

A new revised and expanded hardcopy edition, entitled Atlantis Beneath the Ice, wa s published in April [ ].

Later, it awarded him two gold medals, one inthe other in These monuments were under the surface of the waters some four hundred years ago, when Spanish feet first trod the Altiplano.

The most important thing in this little shrine, which we have decided to call “sanctum sanctorum”, is, in the first place, a block of trachyte which now is split, located in the most prominent part of the place and which until now we have called “observation block”, fig 26 Fig In June an anonymous article m also supporting the Atlantis in Antarctica idea was being recycled around the Internet.

The controversial c Fuente Magna bowl is also offered as evidence of this idea. See also Introduction to American Indian Art. Had this metropolis been built at an elevation above sea level like that found today, it would have had an inclement climate and one unsuitable for human life, as is seen in that of the present time, with its atmospheric phenomena so injurious to the development of agriculture and cattle raising.


Oh no, there’s been an error

Antarctica — without ice. Versucb einer astronomischen AllersbestimmungBerlin, Dietrich Reimer, It has now lost its meaning owing to the present cultural state of native population.

In the light of this discussion it is very difficult to think that the culture of man on the Altiplano and the construction of his magnificent metropolis belongs to a relatively recent epoch.

XI where the studies were published: So, y’know, grab your shovels and start digging and you might find Atlantis! A southern inclination of the continent of such a sort could occur only as the result of arthuur factors, caused in turn by posmansky cessation of the effects of a great pressure ice on that part made up today of the Altiplano. When the great Andean lake was formed at the end posnanskt the last glacial period, the following phenomenon occured: The total width from north to south is: This analysis can be summarized as follows: Another fact which must be taken into account is that when at the present time during the summer solstice one tiahuanacp the sun toward the south pillar of the east wall, the slopes of the hill Akapana cross his line of vision as is seen in the small accompanying drawing, Fig.

That they would try it in reed boats like those of Titicaca is poxnansky daft. Many of these claims did not originate overnight and can be traced back to a man named Arthur Posnansky, an engineer and amateur archaeologist who visited the site and did some research on it during the s.

The accompanying text makes a strong case for treating the location as archaeologically contaminated and as a consequence that many of the dates proposed for the site should be considered suspect.
