Divers have found traces of ancient land swallowed by waves 8500 years ago Doggerland once stretched from Scotland to Denmark Rivers seen underwater by seismic scans Britain was not an island - and area under North Sea was roamed by mammoths and other giant animals Described as the 'real heartland' of Europe Had population of tens of thousands - but devastated by sea level rises

Britain's Atlantis' - a hidden underwater world swallowed by the North Sea - has been discovered by divers working with science teams from the University of St Andrews.

Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC.

Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a population of tens of thousands - which might once have been the 'real heartland' of Europe.

A team of climatologists, archaeologists and geophysicists has now mapped the area using new data from oil companies - and revealed the full extent of a 'lost land' once roamed by mammoths.

People seem to think rising sea levels are a new thing - but it’s a cycle of Earht history that has happened many many times.'

Sunkenciv indeed. Sea, this is what happens when The King isn't around to calm the oceans: the Earht (sic) succumbs to forces otherwise beyond the control of mere mortals.

Hmmm rising sea levels... we need a culprit.

Woolly mammoths must have been the prehistoric equivalent of the SUV.

The earth has been warming and cooling and the oceans have been rising and falling for 4 billion years.

Probably about the same time Elizabeth Warren’s ancestors were walking across the Bering Strait via that land bridge.

Has anybody from the “green” community commented yet on the amountof CO2 generated by Yosemite’s Rim Fire? Obviously, for the sake of the planet, we should tax forest fires — make them purchase carbon credits.

The farts of the woolly mammoth were legendary.

Romans and Barbarians
by Derek Williams
(p 70)
In fact the German heartland appears to have lain in the southern Baltic and north coastal areas of today's Germany. However, in the late 2nd century BC the Germans began to move southwards into the Rhineland and Belgium, setting in motion events which would shake Roman confidence and fuel her longstanding fear of the morthern peoples. Two tribes migrated from Jutland, 'driven from their lands by a great flood-tide.'18 [footnote: Strabo, Geography, 7.2.1]
If this old German tale were a preservation of one of the glacial flood experiences, I have to wonder if it refers to the large influx of cold water attested by isotopes in the Greenland ice cores, or to the breaching of a previously unknown natural barrier which filled what is now the strait between Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia. Interestingly enough, Strabo betrays his own uniformitarian bias:
Geography
by Strabo
[7.2.1]
II. As for the Cimbri, some things that are told about them are incorrect and others are extremely improbable. For instance, one could not accept such a reason for their having become a wandering and piratical folk as this--that while they were dwelling on a Peninsula they were driven out of their habitations by a great flood-tide; for in fact they still hold the country which they held in earlier times; and they sent as a present to Augustus the most sacred kettle1 in their country, with a plea for his friendship and for an amnesty of their earlier offences, and when their petition was granted they set sail for home; and it is ridiculous to suppose that they departed from their homes because they were incensed on account of a phenomenon that is natural and eternal, occurring twice every day. And the assertion that an excessive flood-tide once occurred looks like a fabrication, for when the ocean is affected in this way it is subject to increases and diminutions, but these are regulated and periodical.
And if he were alive today, he'd say he wouldn't believe that the Moon landings happened because he hasn't gone himself.
