Graham Hancock

Before we begin, no, this isn't spam, hoax or a random spam-bot. I make this post of sound mind... (as far as that goes, especially on the internet)

 

With the formalities out of the way, I wanted to draw attention on a... semi? pseudo? archeologist? something? Graham Hancock who has made some rather good videos accessible on youtube involving archeological-lingo and grand conspiracies especially concerning a precursor culture spanning the world (or just a really big chunck of it)!! - Now I am not saying that he is making good arguments here, what I am saying is that he is good at making them. This is not a case of strong science but a really good and convincing presentation of a series of scientific inspired ideas.

 

The reason I mention it, is in case that you wanted/needed some inspiration on various theories that may or may not be referenced, criticized or hereticalized in possible future games concerning the Keating heiress.

Now you're getting into one of my favorite real life subjects. I am a big believer in the Biblical flood, and I always scour a new topic on the subject when presented with one. To be fair, this guy at first glance seems to be of the 'social media rockstar' type of person, which I am not a fan of, but I'll look at what he has to say later.

Now, if you want to get into the science of things, I would recommend you look up the hydroplate theory. There is a really good explanation for a number of natural phenomena that Uniformitarian thinking can't explain nearly as well. You can find videos on youtube also, but because it is such a vast all-encompassing theory it takes the best one I've seen 6 hours to sit through.

 

looking at ruins built with large stones that modern cranes can't lift, atop large mountains that would be impossible for agriculture to support it, is incredibly fascinating, and I also believe that the 'real' sphinx in Egypt is a surviving artifact from that period of time.

 

If the Hydroplate theory is correct, then it would not be too surprising that there would have been a global civilization and that it was destroyed in a very short span of time. Of course a lot of people are loathe to even think about the possibility that anything in the bible is true, so I seriously doubt you'll ever see many highly accredited scientists do research on the subject.

There even older sources about a big devastating flood that even predate the bible and some geologic evidence about a huge flood so I personal also think there was something like this in the European / African region

Well, Almost every ancient culture has a flood story. From Polynesian, to Inuit, to the Epic of Gigamesh. That would very heavily imply that it was much more than just in Europe and Africa.

 

Of course, according to theological history, all of the Bible was was written after the flood. Still, as the first 5 books are typically attributed to Moses, who actually met God on Mt. Sinai, it would therefore not be surprising that there would be details on things which happened before then.

Sounds like fun, I'll be sure to give it a look through one evening or maybe in the weekend... or christmas... I am tempted to say that I need more time, but what I really need is to take time. Somehow it all seems to be grabbed far too easily.

 

But thanks for the idea, I'm fairly sure I'll not only enjoy it but also know someone who'll love the idea for his religious convitions.

No problem. There are few things regarding ancient history that are simple and quick to understand. Even what I know may not be 100% true because there almost isn't any way to know 100%. I once watched an interesting video that showed a genuine error in ancient Egyptian chronology, due to a totally understandable mistranslation by the guy who first cracked the Rosetta Stone. That error was never fixed, but the guy who pointed it out said that if you revise the chronology by a couple of centuries to account for the error, suddenly certain events recorded in Egyptian history could possibly match up with certain biblical events. No way to say definitively, but it's interesting, for sure.
