A fertile and populated ancient Antarctic

In my last article “Do we live in a Crater?” we saw ancient maps that showed Antarctica was at one time green, fertile and populated. After a Great Flood there was a climate change and half the Earth froze over.

The Land of Fire

Old maps are witness to a time you could walk from South America straight into the lush Antarctic. This 1570 map shows that Terra del Fuego, which is today the southern tip of South America, was at one time part of Antarctica (Australia was part of the Antarctic too, discussed in an older article). Again we see unknown land north and south of the known world.

Today, Tierra Del Fuego is the Southernmost tip of Argentina and Chile, as if split off from the Antarctic continent or the sea levels have risen. A closer look reveals the two land masses aren’t actually connected, you need bridges to reach the south.

Here’s a map showing town names of Antarctica (bottom of image).

There are place names in the Antarctic. Where towns are named, there are also people. Antarctica was inhabited! I see lago delos (lake delos), syerra de monadas (monad mountains), malcusodu and other towns lost to historical memory.

The engraving below is by Dutch Navigator Willem Schouten in a book published in 1619. It shows a scene in southern Patagonia (which back then was Tierra del Fuego/Antarctica).

If true to size, we see humans examining the skeleton of a Giant, a giant skull beside normal size humans, birds that are bigger than ships and penguins.

In the same book, a star-fort nearby.

When the first Europeans arrived to the “new world” after the cataclysm, they met naked or sparsely dressed natives. From history class and movies, I assumed that “indigenous people” were dark skinned. But on all early drawings and maps of South America of the time, they are white.

It’s a good guess as any to assume that their outdoor lifestyle over generations, turned their skin darker. In fact, more recent travelers meeting upon the indigenous also found naked people in Tierra del Fuego, but by the 1800s they had become darker.

Here we see an Antarctic “Tierra del Fuogo” separated from South America by the Magellan river. The strait of Magellan is the waterway that also today separates the South American continent from Terra del Fuego. The drawing is made from the Antarctic perspective. It’s one of many examples showing the place fertile, warm and populated. Today Tierra del Fuego is very cold. There are unusual town names with a “pre flood” feel to them, like Draconis. We see a variety of languages: There’s “Die erste Enge” which is German for “the first narrow”. Then we have Dutch sounding places such as Groote Wal (big Whale) and Verbeeck, the Jewish sounding place Abraham and several Spanish labels. This clearly points to a kind of borderless world where anyone could travel around and claim land.


The people of the Antarctic

The indigenous of Tierra del Fuego are the Yahgan People. The Encyclopedia says:

The Yahgan (also called Yagán, Yaghan, Yámana or Yamana) are a group of indigenous peoples in the Southern Cone. Their traditional territory includes the islands south of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, extending their presence into Cape Horn, making them the world’s southernmost human population.

The Yahgan language, also known as Yámana, is considered a language isolate. 

The Yahgan were traditionally nomads and hunter-gatherers who traveled by canoe between islands to collect food. The men hunted sea lions and the women dove to collect shellfish.

The name “Yaghan” is interesting. Remember my two books that say all indigenous people around the world were part of a global empire that spoke ancient German? The word Yaghan in ancient German means “to hunt”. And to hunt is precisely what they did. Simple!

Another indigenous people in the Tierra del Fuego were called the Selk’nam. Selk is ancient German for Seal, an animal that figures prominently in their mythology. The Encyclopedia says this about them:

Selk’nam male initiation ceremonies, the passage to adulthood, was called Hain. Nearby indigenous peoples, the Yahgan and Haush, had similar initiation ceremonies.

The word “Hain” is an often used word of ancient German. It refers to initiation ceremonies, places of sacrifice, Temples, altars, sacred places.

A screenshot from a dictionary of ancient German:

In their Hain ceremonies, they identified with entities from other realms. To merge with this entities, they painted and dressed themselves to look like them:

To me, these have a “lower astral” feel to them. The long pointed masks are seen in dozens of famous horror-movies (such as “Silent Hill”) because they represent well known lower-astrals or demons.

The last of the Selk’nam were kidnapped, enslaved and portrayed as animals in zoos across Europe. I guess the Germans who came for viewing them in their zoos had no idea they were looking at their own genetic brothers and sisters. Strange world.

The primary god of the Selk-a-nam was called Temaukel, which is ancient German Te-Mak-El (the maker El – see my books for explanation or recall El-o-him from the Bible). The goddess of the underworld was called Xalpen, which is Alpen the German word for Mountains. The German word for nightmare is “Alptraum” (Alp-Dream) because scary things were linked to the underworld.

The ancestral Selk’nam who are said to have created this realm were called the “Howenh” which is German for the “heights” or higher places. The “heights people” formed the Earth and Waters. These Howenh were sent here from beyond “the celestial dome” (their words, not mine) in the sky.

The Encyclopedia says this about the Haush people (a word we easily recognize as the German word Haus, meaning House in English, same sound):

Haush was the name given them by the Selknam or Ona people, while the Yamana or Yaghan people called them Italum Ona, meaning Eastern Ona. Several authors state that their name for themselves was Manek’enk or Manek’enkn. Martin Gusinde reported, however, that in the Haush language Manek’enkn simply meant people in general. Furlong notes that Haush has no meaning in the Selknam/Ona language, while haush means kelp in the Yamana/Yaghan language. Since the Selknam/Ona probably met the Yamana/Yaghan people primarily in Haush territory, Furlong speculates that the Selknam/Ona borrowed haush as the name of the people from the Yamana/Yaghan language.

It doesn’t take any research to realize that the Yaghan, Selk’nam and Haush were the same people sharing customs and similar languages. I don’t know why academics have such a hard time understanding even the most rudimentary facts. The Selk’nam were called Ona and the Haush were called Eastern Ona. The Yaghan were also called Yamana which is ancient German for the Men of God (Yah-Mana). The Haush called themselves Manekenk which has the same meaning.

The first expedition led by James Cook encountered the Haush in 1769. Captain Cook wrote that the Haush “are perhaps as miserable a set of people as are this day upon earth.” HMS Beagle, with Charles Darwin aboard, visited Tierra del Fuego in 1832. Darwin noted the resemblance of the Haush to the “Patagonians” he had seen earlier in the voyage, and stated they were very different from the “stunted, miserable wretches further westward”, apparently referring to the Yamana.

Wikipedia tells us that Yaghan is a language isolate (unrelated to any other language). This is easily be debunked by looking at just a few words from a Yaghan Dictionary.

The word for flame and light is sola. In ancient European, Sol is the sun. The word for witch and sorcerer is kaspix. This derives from the ancient German word Kasper, a magical figure that Disney turned into “Casper the Ghost”. The word for priest is prista. The word for God is watainewa. As previously taught “ewa” was ancient German for eternal and wa or wai meant sacred. So their word for God is “the sacred eternal”. Seems pretty clear to me. The word for love is kur, which is ancient German for cure. The word for dirty is derti – an obvious loan word from English.

Let’s take something more difficult. I found the word luteamaka, which I at first don’t understand. It’s translation is “to hollow out”. I look into my German dictionary for “lute” and find that one meaning is to work clay or mud, to hollow clay or mud. The word then is “hollow make”, lute-a-maka. The word for cut is asokata, an example of an incorrectly understood phrase. The indigenous person was saying “A so Kata”, an ancient German phrase meaning “this is how to cut it”.

The Selk’nam say they humans were created by a being called El-Lal, a name any reader of my book “Extraterrestrial Linguistics” will be familiar with.


The Cannibals

According to reports from travelers, South America and Antarctica were in a dire state when the Europeans arrived.  Tribes were in a constant state of war with each other. Cannibalism was widely practiced. Most people were living in wooden huts that were easily burned down by warring tribes, leaving the naked people without shelter. The natives were said to be quick to sell their daughters to the European arrivals in exchange for food. It seemed like the were survivors of a traumatic cataclysm.

The discoverer and merchant Amerigo Vespucci (born 1451), after who America was named, sailed to South America and then to the Antarctic where he discovered a vast “new” land that was fertile and populated. Of course “Historians have questioned the accuracy of Vespucci’s letters” because it doesn’t fit in with the veil that was cast around History. The letters of Vespucci contain a detailed account of life in South America and the Antarctic. Vespucci says that Antarctica had more animals than Africa and that the cannibalistic people lived in very large buildings that could house thousands of people. But while their ancestors built such buildings, when the Europeans met them they were merely building towns made of wood and straw.

It’s possible that Antarctica was the legendary land of Giants. Ancient accounts say the Giants were offspring of forbidden sex between fallen angels and humans and for this reason they were eliminated in a flood. Maybe this is why their continent was frozen. Most Giants, especially in more ancient times, were hostile to humans. They enslaved and also ate them.

There are also plenty of drawings from the 1400s to 1600s of humans acting as cannibals, perhaps emulating the example of the Giants. These are by Theodore de Bry, drawings of South Americans from the 1500s:

Six of the seven men in it look alike. All four women look alike. Their hair is red. What was the painter trying to say?

All accounts say that they were very well built and musculous and raged an average age of 150.

The next one is by Johan Froschauer, 1505:

These cannibals again have red hair and the feathered hats native Americans are known for. And they are lookalike. Does that point toward inbreeding?

Why were these people in such a dire state? I suspect it’s because their civilization was destroyed, they were collectively traumatized and henceforth descended into an uncivilized, chaotic state.

Travelers both ancient and more recent have accused the Yaghan and Selk’nam of Cannibalism. Their own mythology casts cannibal Giants as the villains. Yaghan cosmological myths include a story of the great flood. Anthropologists and Travelers have collected over 60 Yaghan stories mentioning the Great Flood, an event that was obviously very important to them.

This was in the early 1500s, so my previous idea that the area was flooded and iced around 1250 is perhaps not the whole story. There must have been several progressive floods that gradually changed earth’s climate and put the Antarctic under ice. Here, for instance, is a 1507 map showing North America almost completely flooded, except for the Rocky Mountains, unlike earlier maps:

News service Reuters said that this map “puzzles researchers” because it names America and shows South America as well as an Ocean beyond the two, which it “shouldn’t”. Notice also the Pyramid capstone at the North Pole.


The Pyramids of Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego apparently has undiscovered Pyramids of its own. I was lucky to stumble upon a webpage with aerial photos of Tierra del Fuego Pyramids. I don’t know who runs the webpage nor how they knew where to look. But I went to verify and get some screenshots of my own:

If you go to Bing Maps and type the coordinates 53,640583 S 68,414449 W and the “aerial view” of the map, you will see this:


The same on Google Earth, a little more obscured but still obviously a large Pyramid-shape:

Maps show no special site, building, tourist attraction, township or even community here, so I’ll assume for now, that this structure is ancient and unexplored (at least by the general public):

Here’s another one, at the coordinates 53,522329 S 68,487686 W on Bing Maps Aerial view:


Terra Australis

If you scroll back to the map at the top of this article you can see that the gigantic Antarctic continent was at one time called “Terra Australis”.

A Wikipedia-article on “Terra Australis” in italic:

“Terra Australis (Latin: Southern Land) was a hypothetical continent first posited in antiquity and which appeared on maps between the 15th and 18th centuries. Its existence was not based on any survey or direct observation, but rather on the idea that continental land in the Northern Hemisphere should be balanced by land in the Southern Hemisphere. This theory of balancing land has been documented as early as the 5th century on maps by Macrobius, who uses the term Australis on his maps”.

This entire paragraph is one for the garbage bin. Terra Australis was not a “hypothetical land”, it was used in world maps, sea maps and navigation maps that people relied on as accurate. It wasn’t “posited”, but shown to exist on maps and reported by travelers. Of course they have to say “hypothetical” because Antarctica wasn’t supposed to have been known in the 15th Century, much less in the 5th when Macrobius used it. This is why Amerigo Vespuccis travels are all accepted as authentic except for his travels to the Antarctic which are called “controversial”. Those who have falsified our History won’t allow for ancient trans-atlantic contact, much less an awareness of Terra Australis. Even though it was known, it was often called “the unknown land”. There must have been something preventing most people to go there, just like today. Was it the land of Giants and was this the main deterrent?

Other names for the hypothetical continent have included Terra Australis Ignota, Terra Australis Incognit’ (“the unknown land of the south”) or Terra Australis Nondum Cognita (“the southern land not yet known”). Other names were Brasiliae Australis (“the southern Brazil”), and Magellanica (“the land of Magellan”). Matthias Ringmann called it the Ora antarctica (antarctic land) in 1505, and Franciscus Monachus called it the Australis orę (Austral country). In Medieval times it was known as the Antipodes.

During the eighteenth century, today’s Australia was not conflated with Terra Australis, as it sometimes was in the twentieth century. Captain Cook and his contemporaries knew that the sixth continent (today’s Australia), which they called New Holland, was entirely separate from the imagined (but still undiscovered) seventh continent (today’s Antarctica).

A cataclysm that flooded the land and separated Australia from Antarctica, as well as Tierra del Fuego. It is my current view (subject to change) that one of these disasters happened around 1250, another in the 1500s and another in the 1700s. Captain Cook found a post-cataclysmic Australia.

Ptolemy (2nd century AD) believed that the Indian Ocean was enclosed on the south by land, and that the lands of the Northern Hemisphere should be balanced by land in the south. Marcus Tullius Cicero used the term cingulus australis (“southern zone”) in referring to the Antipodes in Somnium Scipionis (“Dream of Scipio”). The land (terra in Latin) in this zone was the Terra Australis.

Legends of Terra Australis Incognita—an “unknown land of the South”—date back to Roman times and before, and were commonplace in medieval geography, although not based on any documented knowledge of the continent.

Even though Wikipedia is full of inaccuracies, much is learned by reading between the lines. I was surprised to find that Terra Australis was known by 2nd Century Ptolemy! I remember learning in school that Antarctica was “discovered” in the 1800s. and here it says it was already known in the year 200! The last sentence is not very smart: “Terra Australis…was common in medieval geography, although not based on any documented knowledge of the continent”. If there was no knowledge of the continent, why did so many learned people reference it? That would be as if I say “Even though people of the year 2001 were all talking about the World Trade Center attack, they had no documented knowledge of it”.

The next images shows the well-known 1513 Piri Reis map. That map, by Turkish Navigator Piri Reis is more than enough to debunk any notion that Antarctica/Terra Australis weren’t known to the ancients.

When mainstream academics looks into the past, they find “primitive hunter-gatherers” and an “ice-age”. Every time I look into the past, no matter where, I find Giants, Dwarves, Cannibals, Dragons, Flying Ships and Floods. It is not wrong that at some points on our timeline, humans descend to survival-mode as “hunter gatherers’. It’s not wrong that there was an age of ice. But the ice-age did not begin 2.4 Million years ago, there was a drastic event as recent as 400-1000 years ago. And the hunter-gatherers weren’t just that for hundreds of thousands of years, humans went through cycles of great advancement and decline many times. This much is obvious from a comparative and unbiased look at the old maps, reports and paintings.
