World War II Rumor About an Ancient Lake Is Revived (Russians Say Hitler Remains/Clones)
New York Times ^ | February 8, 2012 | J. David Goodman

Posted on 02/09/2012 7:33:04 PM PST by nickcarraway

As my colleague David M. Herszenhorn reports, scientists are poised to take some highly anticipated samples from a deep subglacial lake in Antarctica, saying on Wednesday that they had succeeded in boring through more than two miles of ice.

The state-financed broadcaster Russia Today posted video of the researchers at the frigid Antarctic outpost, including clips of them snowmobiling around the endless expanse of ice and snow and watching supply planes land.

What evolutionary secrets Lake Vostok — named after the Russian research station above it — may hold after being sealed under ice for millions of years has tantalized scientists who hope to find evidence of previously unknown forms of life.

Probing the mysterious depths of earth has also fascinated casual observers, some of whom gravitated toward more outlandish theories about what may be discovered in the ancient lake, including alien life forms or Hitler’s remains.

That last theory, based on sketchy rumors of a Nazi base on the frozen continent, received an unlikely boost this week from Russia’s state-run news service, Ria Novosti, which said that the scientific mission had revived an “old theory saying that German Nazis may have built a secret base” at Lake Vostok “as early as the 1930s.”

The state news report then delved deeper into the realm of Nazi conspiracy theory, observing without any evidence that “it was also rumored that later the submarine U-977 delivered the remains of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun to Antarctica for DNA cloning purposes.”

Bloggers pointed to other rumors of a Nazi base in a vast northern area of Antarctica known as Queen Maud’s Land (or Dronning Maud Land in Norwegian), as the Washington Post blogger Elizabeth Flock observed. Even so, the Moscow Times and others picked up the reported rumors without providing any new evidence or

NAZIs, is there anything they can't do?

By the way they aren't in Antartica anymore, they escaped to the moon. Not to worry though, even moon NAZIs are nothing a President Palin can't handle:

They won't find any Hitler remains, because Hitler never really died. That whole death thing was faked you see. He was relly kidnapped by aliens, who, since then, have made millions of clones of the Fuhrer. The aliens are now planning to take over the earth with the aid of the clones and re-establish the Third Reich on the earth and throughout the entire universe! *gasp*

I read all about it on a blog so it must be true.

I know this is a dumb question, but is this really a lake or some unfrozen water in a bubble under the ice.

When I was in high school there was a woman in my small town (Hannibal, Mo) who seemed to believe that Hitler was living in a secret camp just outside of the city limits and that he was preparing to regain control. You could call her up, tell her you were working on a paper for class, and she would go on and on. I feel bad about it now as it seems clear that she had some serious mental problem. On the other hand she could have just been having some fun at our expense.

I was thinking of “They saved Hitler’s Brain.” I would not even rate it as a “B” movie. It is worth watching, if nothing else for the train wreck effect.

Holy frozen schnitzel Batman! By golly, let’s fly the Batplane down there and show those Nazis what for! It would make a great comic book, maybe with Michelle Obama going along and giving those evil Nazis a preachy lecture on eating too much fat at the end since the Obamas don’t seem to recognize evil people for what they are.

It is an unfrozen body of water the size of Lake Ontario which is under 2 miles of ice.

A few observations in rebuttal: Why would the Nazis build a secret base there in the 1930s as a cache for Hitler’s defeated remains when they considered him invincible?

And as for cloning his DNA, I may not be up to speed, but I don’t recall much at all in the realm of genetics until the mid 60s......20 years after Hitler’s demise.

Just sayin’.

Gregory Peck isn’t playing Hitler, he is playing Dr Josef Mengele, from the Movie “Boys from Brazil”, a great and scary film.

A “Lost World” under the ice of Antartica full of rejuvenated Nazis sounds like a great movie.

Why can’t we let the Nazi stories and rumors about perpetuating the Third Reich die? They are becoming Droning Maudlin.

One of the vignettes or anecdotes in “Morning of the Magicians” (no footnotes, so, kinda useless) speaks of a guru in India who spoke of the underground realm of Agartha, and how the entrance to it was some locally famous cavern just outside of town. Thousands of followers gathered, and, holding a single torch aloft, followed him down into the darkness. None of them was ever heard from again.

That’s the beauty of Antarctica — the only southern area is the South Pole. Everything else lies north.

I want to see if anyone else gets the same results as I got.

Go to Google Earth. Go to Antarctica, enter in “Vostok station” You should get a pin-point in the interior of the continent. Zoom in closer and closer on it. I eventually got a computer generated picture of “buildings”. Very fake looking. Nothing at all like the other research stations all over Antarctica.

Try it and see if you get the same thing.
