The Wandering Mind


Antarctica

Posted in Atlantis by wandren on 1 July 2009

Some seekers of Atlantis have set their sights on Antarctica, chief among them Argentine explorer Alex Chionetti.  According to Chionetti, Antarctica was once located closer to the equator.  Approximately 10,000 years ago, he insists, Earth’s axis tilted, sending the continent of Atlantis drifting toward its present location at the South Pole.

Chionetti presents such evidence as the 500-year-old Piri-Reis map, which depicts what Chionetti believes to be the coastline of Atlantis.  He also points to a 1976 Norwegian expedition to Antarctica, which allegedly found “mysterious structures” that he thinks are remnants of the Atlantean empire.
