Hey, they were just a bunch of guys sitting around near the lake over a mastodon barbeque sharing some ice fishing stories.

“Hairy, I swear to you that was a megolodon I almost caught, but he broke that darn mammoth-gut line and got away.”

Looks like they were trodden on by a dwarf.

You sure that isn’t a image of the Virgin Mary making a grilled cheese sandwich?

You, too, huh? Couple of summers ago I did actually recover a leather Aussie bush hat about 4 months after I dropped it in Canyon Lake. Still looks good, and now it has a STORY! Which is always better.

I’m kinda familiar with Grand Traverse bay. Think about this: This alleged Stonhedge type of structure was found in approx. 39 feet of water. That means that the inhabitants of that time made that structure when Lake Michigan was at least 40 - 50 feet shallower.......

Back when I was younger than I am now,(1995 or so) I remember Art Bell having this scientist lady on and they used a Side Sonar off the Coast of Cuba, saying it looked like anunderground city, blah blah blah, it was Sponsored by the LIFE Magazine or something too. Never heard what became of that.

Hail Atlantis!

You would be surprised how right you are.

During the last ice age, the water levels were much lower around the globe, and since humans like to live near water, it makes sense that our history, beyond the past 12k years or so, is under water.

It would also explain why every culture has a flood story.

The mastadon, IF that is what the lines are (I’ve seen some really weird “pictures” in supposedly random-pattern linoleum) doesn’t mean a lot, as the boulder could have come from elsewhere; it doesn’t look ‘native’ to that spot.

As to the rock formation, wasn’t the area of Traverse Bay either under ice or under even deeper water up until around 4,000 years ago?

don’t see any kind of arrangement similar to sstonehenge, or anything that would make me think it’s manmade.

Me either. Plus lots of years of storms and currents could move things about to form about anything.

Y'know, I'm not sure about the length of time... here in Grand Rapids, on the south side of Michigan Street, at the east end of the bridge, there's an historical marker which shows the various courses of the rivers flowing along the edge of the retreating ice sheet.

[heading] Archaeology: Undersea Adventures and Pre-Columbian Mingling

Eric Powell, a senior editor at Archaeology magazine, says some of 2009’s most exciting digs will be undersea.

“There is a lot of good work on everything from Bronze Age shipwrecks in the Aegean to Paleolithic archaeology,” he said.

“People are starting to think of underwater archaeology as focused not just on nautical history, but on the prehistoric landscape that existed when glaciers had water tied up and sea levels were much lower,” he said.

Powell expects new evidence of pre-Columbian mingling to shake-up the field as well.

“I think in the coming year you’re going to see some discoveries announced that shed light on the New World/Old World contacts before Columbus came,” Powell said.

“We may realize that there was much more contact than we previously thought.”

Looks like another mastadon above and to the right also. Hope the Japanese can clone them:)
