Pyramids of Ice in Antarctica

Updated on March 2, 2013

Land Bridge


For years it has been thought that the Americas were first populated by Asians crossing a land bridge, which once existed between Russia and Alaska.

More recently, some have theorized that they sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in boats. Others think they may have crossed thePacific Ocean.

I believe none of these theories to be correct.

Pyramid, Egypt
Pyramid, America
Pyramid, America


Some facts that we know.

As well as Pyramids in Egypt, there are also Pyramids in Central and South America.

This could possibly indicate that people migrated from Egypt to the Americas, taking their beliefs with them.

This would not explain however, how on examination of an Egyptian Mummy’s internal organs, an excess of nicotine and cocaine [both products of theAmericas] were found.

Obviously, trade links had already been formed.

We now know that in the 5th century BC, Alexandra the Great possessed maps of the Antarctic coast without ice.

We know, from drillings taken of the Ross Sea bottom that rivers once flowed in Antarctica. The drillings also showed that the sea bottom didn’t even start to freeze until at least 4000BC.

This means that at the times of the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians, Antarctica was not completely covered in ice.

My Theory

An ancient civilization once lived on Antarctica. As the climate got colder and living there became harder, they migrated north. Some migrating through Africa and others through South America. Although they may have taken different directions, they maintained trade routes as long as possible.

They of course would have taken their beliefs with them, which included the building of Pyramids.

If my theory was correct, you may ask, why are there no Pyramids on Antarctica?

The answer to that is: Just because we have not yet found them, does not mean they do not exist. After all, what would scientists look for, Pyramids of Ice? No, the ice would have already completely covered the highest of Pyramids.

The Nazi’s believed a civilization had existed on Antarctica and even during the hardest of the fighting, during WW11, they had scientific surveys going on in Antarctica.

Later, even at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union had joint surveys taking place in Antarctica. I believe these surveys were trying to find proof that an ancient civilization once lived there.

If this civilization had existed, I would not like to speculate as to whether or not it originated on this planet or was from an Alien origin. However, I am sure that if we were to find proof of its existence, we would be able to find the truth of our history and would no longer have to theorize or speculate.

      "Alexandra" the Great in the 5th century B. C., eh? Odd, since Alexander the Great was only born in 356 B. C., almost halfway through the fourth century BC!!

      You're right rafken!

      This is greatly interesting, and a wonderful complement to my more traditional arguments.

      You never fail with your unique theses.

      lone77star - My information is that one of Admiral Richard e. Byrds expeditions drilled the Ross Sea bed in 1949 - thanks.

      Rafken, another outstanding article. Thanks!

      The connection between Egypt and Central America based on pyramids is a shaky one, at best. The 4-sided pyramid is a very stable shape and not something that is intrinsically unique. Any child can create this basic shape without it automatically being Atlantean.

      But the nicotine and cocaine in Egyptian mummies! Wow, now that's a connection that raises my eyebrows. Very interesting.

      The source on this tidbit is not too shabby, either:

      The idea that Antarctica once held a civilization of humans is an intriguing one, but highly troubled simply because of the thickness of ice. Some parts of the continent may have been warmer in more recent times. The idea that the physical poles wander is a possible explanation of this, though I'd like to see better evidence of such a phenomenon, before passing any judgment on it.

      I don't know of any ice cores drilled in Antarctica, but the thickness of ice is in places very similar to that found on Greenland, possibly even thicker. And not much snow falls in either place because of the extreme cold.

      The cores drilled in Greenland show that ice has accumulated there for something like 100,000 years, since the Eemian interglacial. That's a really long, long time ago, even compared to the supposed ages of the pyramids (scholarly and hypothetical).

      With a slight polar shift, some coastal areas of Antarctica which might have been ice free might later have become covered with ice because of the squeezing, slow motion of glacial ice to spread out. So, 100,000+ years of ice could cover an area that had been ice free as recently as 12,000 years ago. Hmmm-m-m. I had never looked at that before. You hub is eliciting all kinds of creativity.

      Thanks! ;)
