Alien Maps Found

Updated on March 2, 2013

The Facts

It is estimated that the Antarctic was ice free until 4000B.C, since then though it has been covered in ice.

At the end of the last ice age, water from the melting glaciers covered a 1600km strip of land that joined Alaska to Asia.

Greenland is in fact two islands. At sometime in our ancient history, a thick ice cap joined the two islands.

Piri Reis Map

The Maps

In 1929 historians found a map. It has later been proven that this map was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a high ranking officer in the Turkish navy. In some notes that accompanied the map, the Admiral admits that he compiled the map from earlier documents he had seen.

The map showed longitude and latitude precisely, something that it was thought could not be done prior to 1761, when an Englishman named John Harrison invented a technique in doing it.

The Piri Reis map showed West Africa, the Atlantic Ocean, Eastern America and the coastline of Antarctica without ice.

This map was drawn in 1513, 300 years before the discovery of Antarctica and showed details of the land mass, that according to modern geographers, could not have been seen, without sonar and seismic instruments, for 6000 years.

This however was not the only map of its kind to have been found. A map drawn in 1532 by Oronteus Fineus, also shows the coastline ofAntarctica. In 1559 Hadji Ahmed drew a map that detailed the 1600km wide land bridge between Alaska and Siberia. “Zeno’s Chart” said to have been drawn in 1380 shows Greenland as two separate islands.

A map found in China, which has been dated to originating in 1137, also shows the same details as the above.

The Conclusion

Because of the way these maps have been drawn, experts believe that all these maps had been copied from older source documents, even perhaps they had all been copied from the same document.

This begs the questions; when was the original document drawn and by whom?

The information is over 6000 years old. Yet the details are similar to those seen by aircraft or satellite and the technique used to produce accuracy, is only 300 years old.

If the original document was not drawn by an alien, then who? A time traveler? Take your pick.

      Interesting story rafken I wonder if today’s analysis of mankind post or before BC was even in the slightest close or accurate, there is so much archeologically remaining today that baffles even today’s scientists and some would again argue that we don’t have the machinery to even complete some of it today, like aligning and moving 100, 000 tonne blocks etc.

      Yet if we try to challenge or speak of anything that is in conflict to the excepted norm, all you receive are repetitive “Hss’s and a few Ahum, Ahumms” from an already fixed mindset community, plus whatever evidence you produce it just goes blindly in the archived box.

      Oh Humanity is wearing away at me?

      Is there any wonder why they don’t see it, well that’s because they just don’t want too, bloody sucks!

      Extraterrestrials exist! Time Travel is possible! Ancient man was no fool!

      Were they primitive?

      No they bloody were not and that’s a fact, just look around the world today and their advanced societies have left much to be wondered and bewildered about, and the ordinary sheep say “BAaah, ropes and pulleys my friend as they didn’t even discover Iron in those days”.

      yeah right that’s what your degree at Harvard told you, but then can you please explain how they have managed to quarry perfectly cut stone blocks that weigh incredible measurements that we could not lift today, also how did they put them together so precisely that you would struggle to put a credit card in between them?

      Educated Reply?

      Oh huffle puss and rags dear boy, you have been reading too much of those ‘Sci-Fi’ books, here have a glass of port and smoke your cigar and not waste your prime and youth on such folly!

      Extraterrestrials are real! I actually met one and I even drank the port, now go figure!

      Another great hub by the way rafken…

      This is very interesting, There are many events like this in our history that leave questions open to speculation. I have no doubt that we (Humankind) are not the only intelligent life forms that exist and I also don't discount the possibility of much older lifeforms out there that may have visited Earth.

      This is not to say that (they) are the answer to this mystery but the possibility exists and is a valid topic for discussion.

      Some things are just a mystery. This article is very well presented with background material and your premise. I would not discount anything, although I have doubts about aliens being involved. Thank you for a thought-invoking article.

      Melpor: In 1953 the Piri Reis map was loaned to the US Navy Hydrographic Bureau for evaluation. They confirmed its accuracy and even used the map to correct some of their own charts. In his notes Piri Reis admits using some charts from the Alexandra the Great Library dating back to 332B.C

      Rafken, I do not believe these maps have aliens origin at all. There is alway some valid explanation for these kind of things. The coastlines of these continents on these old maps are not accurate. Early explorers simply did not have the technology to do any kind of surveying until hundreds of years later. The maps Christopher Columbus used were not accurate. Some of the landmasses represented on the map were based on assumptions that there were more land out there to be explored. They had no idea what the land look like.
