The world-renowned Ottoman cartographer The 500-year-old map of Piri Reis, apart from the precise exploration of the northern coast of Antarctica, provides amazing information about 2000 major ports and cities of the Mediterranean, the western coasts of Europe and North Africa and the East Coast of South America
The Piri Reis map was compiled in 1513 and, when discovered in 1929, caused an international sensation as it was the only map of the sixteenth century that showed South America in its proper longitudinal position compared with Africa. The map shows the earth seen from space, the sub-glacial topography of Greenland and Antarctica, and is aligned with the terrestrial energy network – enough information difficult to chew to fascinate the world today.
The amazing details puzzled human minds and raised questions and controversies:
The map depicts Queen Maud Land, an area of 2.7 million square kilometers of Antarctica, ice-free millions of years ago. The geological evidence proves that this area would not have been free from ice until 4000 BC.
The true nature of Antarctica as a chilly region of ice and snow was convincingly proved for the first time by the second voyage of the English navigator Captain James Cook between 1772 and 1775.
The map shows the Antarctic mountain ranges. These were discovered only in 1952.
The geographical survey in Antarctica could not have been carried out without aerial technology. Such expertise did not exist a million years ago.
The last ice-free period in Antarctica ended about 6000 years ago. The puzzle is now: Who mapped the Earth of Queen Maud of Antarctica 6000 years ago?
The map of Piri Reis probably implies that, if not technology, there existed perhaps an ancient civilization and extremely intelligent with all the tools of modern civilization. The first civilization developed around 3000 BC. AD, followed by the Indus Valley and Chinese civilizations. Now the second puzzle is: Who conducted such in-depth research and investigations 4000 BC. Which are only possible in the modern era with state-of-the-art technology?
History Professor Charles Hapgood believes: “It seems that accurate information has been passed on to people. It seems that the paintings must have originated from an unknown people and that they were transmitted, perhaps by the Minoans and Phoenicians, who for a thousand years or more had been the greatest sailors of the ancient world. We have proof that they were collected and studied in the great library of Alexandria (Egypt) and that the compilations were made by the geographers who worked there. ”
The map did not originate from an ancient civilization nor created by extraterrestrials; an astonishing work, the Piri Reis card was indeed a piece of first-class intelligence.
