It is believed that ancient civilization known as Antediluvian civilizations made detailed maps of our planet.
The Antediluvian period or the Pre-Flood period is referred to the time ‘before the great deluge’. In the bible, this period is set between the fall of man and the Noachian deluge, the story of the Flood as described by genesis. However, stories of a great deluge are not only present in the Bible, as a matter of a fact, similar stories can be found in different religions and stretching back thousands of years.
It is noteworthy to mention that according to Sumerian Tablets, just before the great flood struck the Earth, ‘Gods’ left the planet to remain safe in the ‘heavens’, only to return after the flood.
These stories are commonly referred to as ‘myths’ by mainstream scholars indicate a time when different civilizations inhabited our planet, cultures and people that lived on Earth before history was written, a lost period of pre-historic events whose remains we are slowly picking up today.
But not only are the stories of a Great Flood the only evidence that supports the theory advanced civilizations were her much before us, there are numerous other discoveries that support the idea of Antediluvian civilizations.
Maps like the one by Piri Reis have been validated by scholars who remain baffled and cannot explain their precision and level of detail. Some of them were created as if somehow, someone was able to see the land from the air before drawing the charts.
The Piri Reis map was composed around 1520 and in addition to displaying Antarctica without ice, it accurately depicts the geography of the American Continent with such a precision that it looks as if it was put together with the aid of aerial photography. Interestingly, this map was examined by the US Hydrographic Office of the Navy, where its authenticity was confirmed. The map was proven genuine and is so accurate that it was purportedly used to correct errors in some modern maps.
The geographical information contained in the map indicates that some of its source material date back more than 5,000 years. While the Piri Reis map is not a map that is believed to predate the Great Deluge, the map was created using maps that are over 5000 years old.
However, other maps like the Zeno Map draws our attention since it predates the Piri Reis map, outlining the coast of modern-day Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Scotland, and Germany.
Even more interesting are the cartographical charts created by Iehudi Ibn ben Zara. His Map drawn around 1487 depicts certain regions of Britain covered in Glaciers. The map also displays islands in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. These islands exist still today, the only underwater, suggesting that whatever maps were used to create the cartographical chart of 1487, were from a time when our planet’s geology was much different, a time that perhaps could be traced back to the antediluvian period.
