Numerous maps have been discovered depicting our planet as it was before the last ice age. Many people claim that before written history, extremely advanced ancient civilizations existed on Earth and these ancient cultures, ignored by mainstream history, had well-developed cartography systems comparable in precision to the one’s we have today.

 

No one has been able to explain just how these extremely ancient maps,  depicting regions of our planet like Antarctica without ice, dating back thousands of years exist. Many argue that these maps are the product of Antediluvian civilizations that inhabited our planet thousands of years before written mainstream history.

The Antediluvian period or the Pre-Flood period is referred to the time ‘before the great deluge’. In the Bible, this time, is set between the fall of man and the Noachian deluge, the story of the Flood as described in Genesis.

While most of us are familiar with the Piri Reis map –which has been validated by scholars who remain baffled and cannot explain their precision and level of detail—most of us are unaware that there are numerous other maps that depict the same scenery.

 

One of those maps is the controversial cartographic chart created by a French geographer by the name of Philippe Buache de la Neuville. The Buache map has two versions. One of the charts is believed to accurately depict the ice-free coastline of Antarctica while the other chart makes no mention of the continent whatsoever. Many indicate that Buache was unaware of the existence of the Icy Continent and that his depictions were nothing more than a hypothesis.

The 18th-century map is claimed to accurately depict the continent of Antarctica before it was buried by thick layers of Ice. The only way for the map to correctly portray this is if someone mapped the Antarctic continent when it was free from ice. However, not many agree with these claims suggesting it was misinterpreted.

The correct name of the map is “Carte des Terres Australes comprises entre le Tropique du Capricorne et le Pôle Antarctique où se voyent les nouvelles découvertes faites en 1739 au Sud du Cap de Bonne Esperance” which translated to English reads: “Map of the Southern Lands contained between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Pole, where the new discoveries made in 1739 to the south of the Cape of Good Hope may be seen”.

Many people claim that the Bouche Map also accurately positioned the Canary Island. The map issued in 1737 also displays the correct outline of the underwater plateau on which the islands are located. This means that the source of the map used to create it is based on a survey of the shape before glaciers melted and ocean levels rose. Even more interesting is the fact that the Buache Map depicts the waterway which divides the continent of Antarctica into two landmasses.

Claims about the Buache Map and that it depicts the continent of Antarctica Ice-Free are said to have its origins Charles Hapgood’s 1966 book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Since then, many have claimed that together with other ancient maps, the Buache map was created based on far older maps which are said to have been created by a highly developed ancient civilization. However, many argue that this is incorrect. Today, its difficult to imagine if or not, the Buache map accurately represents the subglacial coastline of Antarctica. Furthermore, many argue that the map itself indicate as to how it was created, making no reference to far older maps.

Philippe Buache’s map (supposedly of 1739, although, as we shall see, there are complications with the date) has suffered the same fate as Piri’s and Orontius Finaeus’s maps, to be used as evidence for an ancient civilisation that mapped Antarctica when it was free from ice. According to the title of the map, it is a ‘Carte des Terres Australes comprises entre le Tropique du Capricorne et le Pôle Antarctique où se voyent les nouvelles découvertes faites en 1739 au Sud du Cap de Bonne Esperance’ (‘Map of the Southern Lands contained between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Pole, where the new discoveries made in 1739 to the south of the Cape of Good Hope may be seen’). Despite the frequent Bad Archaeologists’ statements that the map was published in 1737, it gives the date of publication as 5 September 1739. Moreover, the text describes Jean-Baptiste Charles Bouvet de Lozier’s (1704-1786) voyage to the south, which lasted from 19 July 1738 to 24 June 1739.

PIRI REISE MAP

 

The map frequently mentions icebergs, freezing temperatures and glaciers; icebergs are even drawn in places. Bouvet’s Cape of the Circumcision, where he was unable to land owing to the icebergs, is now known to be the island that was named after him by the American whaler Benjamin Morrell (1795-1839) in 1822. This makes the claims that Buache’s map shows an ice-free Antarctica all the more bizarre, but it is clear that none of the Bad Archaeologists have bothered to read the French legends that cover the map.

The life of Philippe Buache (1700-1773)
The claims of Bad Archaeologists about Buache’s map ignore a crucial fact: he was the foremost theoretical geographer of his generation, whose published works include hypotheses about the Antarctic continent. Philippe Buache de la Neuville was born in Neuville-en-Pont (France) on 7th February 1700 and studied at the Académie des Sciences, where he won the first prize for architecture in 1721. He subsequently joined the Ministry of the Navy, where his drafting skills enabled him to concentrate on cartography. In 1729 he became geographer to the king, then geographer in the Académie des Sciences, successor to his former teacher and father-in-law, Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726). He pioneered a new form of theoretical geography and, in 1755, was appointed Professor of Geography.

More than a copyist, Buache was an academic geographer who researched his material thoroughly, relying on the most up-to-date information from voyages of discovery. He was the first geographer to recognise the important concept of the watershed and it was this that led him to make a number of deductions, some correct, some not. A correct deduction was the existence of Alaska and the Bering Strait, years before they were officially discovered, while an incorrect deduction was the existence of a central Antarctic sea, which he conjectured to be the source of the icebergs observed by Bouvet in 1738.

 

Buache’s important published works include Considérations géographiques et physiques sur les découvertes nouvelles dans la grande mer, published in 1754, which contains the first accurate map of the western coast of North America, and Considérations géographiques sur les terres australes et antarctiques, published in 1761, which includes his justification for a belief in a central Antarctic sea. These publications were the works of a major geographical theorist who established some of the fundamental principles of physical geography that have endured to the present day.

Your source mentions Charles Hapgood, who proposed Crustal Displacement as the means by which earth's mantle breaks, rises, falls, moves. 

Admiral Byrd also reported seeing ice-free areas on his Antarctic expedition. The Nazis were very interested in the frozen wasteland and UFOs have been reported coming from mysterious bases. After Operation HighJump, we have seen a military fleet "protect" the frozen wasteland from intruders. The Antarctic Treaty has divvied it up among various nations for so-called scientific purposes. It is strictly off-limits to unauthorized visitors.

Flatearthers want access to Antarctica. Why? Because we see it as the ice shelf which encircles the Gleason map. What is beyond the shelf? 

Here is Rick Potvin's map. If you study it carefully, you will see how he is planning to circumnavigate it virtually, it to verify its true size.

My thoughts on it is that there are some ancient maps showing antarctica without ice, so at one time, it must have been ice free.  This would indicate people had cartographic abilities before the ice age.

It also indicates advanced civilizations that have risen and fallen throughout time. There is too much evidence out there to think otherwise.

I think you are right Octopus prime, I think we have been around a lot longer than we think.

There's evidence all over the planet but it's carefully covered up.

In a dream I had, I lived in a world, where the World map was Upside down from what it was today, North America being in the SE Corner of the world map.

It could also mean they had the ability to see what was beneath the ice. It is also known that the area was at one time a tropical rain forest, and I have even studied that Atlantis actually slid there in a massive crustal shift when the Mid-Atlantic Ridge was formed.

We also know there were other earth ages before this one we are now living in. Example, The Pre-Adamic Age, and others which happened many billions of years ago.  The further back in time you travel, the more advanced was their technology, but because of their own destruction, everything have pretty much been covered over though some relics have been discovered, but, those really advanced things are crated and shipped off to a warehouse for later study. You're not gonna know about those. Remember the show that aired on Sci-Fi channel for a few seasons called Warehouse 13?

Do not go there, puny humans. It is a small icy island with nothing to gain by going there. The Antarctic Treaty has forbidden unauthorized visitors. A naval fleet makes sure you do not enter. Or else. Several explorers have taken expeditions to circumnavigate it and found the mileage to be far greater than the maps would say.

I don't see how their calculations jibe with the hollow earth, Titanic.

Go directly to 3:30 of the following video.

 @grav, please watch this as directed above. If you want to be fair to us sphere earther's, you can post this on you FE thread as it makes some very valid and yet overlooked sciences. Maybe I'll just post it there myself and not hang around to get involved in any conflict with anyone. lol. Just joking.

It made me chuckle. Is that his office? It looks like a diner. And the food kept changing. Plastic, no doubt. I had just been an episode of The Big Bang Theory, with Sheldon doing his Fun with Flags video. This guy is very much like him, slim, kinda effeminate.

Please do post it on the FE thread. Maps are a big part of our research. Esp. Antarctica, which we see as the ice wall that encircles the puddle of Earth in the flat Universe. Yes, astrophysicists say it's a parallel plane.

The visible spectrum applies more to alien ct, IMO. Butterflies see in infrared. Whales echolocate. Dogs hear ultrasound. I have a friend who is color blind,  which makes his job as a botanist tricky when he can't see red flowers. Before I derail the thread further, I will simply admit that we know next to nothing about the world. Tptb dangle interesting tidbits and shiny objects to hypnotize us. How can we sort the truth from the psy ops without verifying by ourselves? That is the zetetic approach. Trust no authority. Proceed from inquiry. Something is fishy in Antarctica, and it ain't the penguins.
