Professor Stephen Oppenheimer, makes the same case in his excellent book, Eden In The East.
Dr Robert Schoch does essentially the same in his book, Voyages Of The Pyramid Builders
We are about to see the greatest era of archeology unfold.

Did anyone check Sandy Berger?
Somewhere I've got an old bottle with some Naacal tablets. They're obviously a little past their expiration date...
Kind of like Helen Thomas! Come to think of it, it was probably originally her bottle. . .They didn't find a mummified journalist at the site with the Naacal tablets, did they?
I won't believe any of this untill we find a Case Backhoe or a Manitowoc 2100 rusting in the bay of Campeche!
The land area that went underwater is twice the land area of present day India. A lot of people had to move.
Oppenheimer said that the Ice Age had three major melt surges, the last one 7-8,000 years ago. I expect there would have been a lot of earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanos due to weight redistribution. I guessing that most could have walked/sailed away from the rising melt water.
Excellent article, thanks for posting.
Boy, is this ever interesting. Yeah, thanks for putting it up.
Mu and Atlantis both suffered from melting glaciers. Funny, lot of people seem to think that is only happening now.
Bump for later
I agree. The flooding occurred in three major events. The last one was in the 7-8,000 year time frame. Remember that the Black Sea flood is dated at 5,600BC. I think it took that long for the Mediterranean to refill through the opening at Gilbralter and then cascaded into the Black Sea. I suspect the Gulf Of Mexico went through something similar. I have some wood from a forest thats on the bottom of Santa Rosa Sound (Florida) that dates to about 7,000BC.
BTW, the Gulf Of Mexico scenario is pure speculation (I know of no evidence), I came up with that thought as about the only way to explain the underwater structures (if they turn out to be structures) off the coast of Cuba. They were built on the shore of a dessicated Gulf Of Mexico in pre-history. They are one-half mile underwater and that seems like too much for subsidence.
