Sorry to have left the Mu/Atlantis discussion hanging, but I was not able to do much computer work the past several weeks. At any rate, I reviewed all of the sites that Ketch mentioned in his last post on the subject of the abrupt ending of the last ice age. The basis for the discussion was that if there was evidence of a cataclysm sufficient to have destroyed them, then we could say that it is at least possible that Mu and Atlantis could have existed prior to aprox. 12,000 years ago.
After reading through the various sites referenced by Ketch, I could find nothing in any of them that dealt with the specific question at hand. They more generally discussed different aspects of the environment before and after the last ice age ended.
Now, when I say that the last ice age ended abruptly, I mean in geological terms. That does not mean that all of the glaciers suddenly disappeared. It means that the climactic conditions conducive to an ice age abruptly changed, and a large part of the ocean ice was broken up and melted as a result of the particular kind of cataclysm that occurred (primarily an ocean impact). The glaciers (on land) then began to slowly melt, and, of course, still exist today, although greatly diminished.
For verification of this fact, I would suggest to begin by looking at the book When the Earth Nearly Died, by Allan & Delair. "When the Earth Nearly Died challenges contemporary theories by showing in a detailed survey that well-established geological, palaeontological and biological evidence point to this planet undergoing sudden and very major physical changes about 11,500 years ago. (In fact, the 'Ice Age', as proposed by orthodoxy, is abandoned by the authors in favour of a much shorter later period of intense cold). Nearly all the phenomena ascribed to conventional Ice Age theory can be interpreted as the result of natural convulsions of worldwide proportions. The authors - citing much reputable supporting evidence - argue that the great mountain ranges of today and the great crustal displacements which, along with enormous seismic and volcanic eruptions, changed the face of the Earth, in fact happened violently, rapidly and comparatively very recently.
One of the most fascinating bodies of evidence is provided by animal remains found in caves, especially in Europe, Asia, South American and Australasia. These usually consist of chaotic agglutinated piles of disjointed of a variety of species that could never have co-existed in the same environment - tropical species in northern graveyards and northern species at many equatorial sites. Bird remains in Californian tar-pits illustrate this anomaly even more tellingly."
As to what caused the cataclysm, try reading Earth Under Fire: Humanity's Survival of the Apocalypse, by Paul LaViolette.
"LaViolette, a systems scientist and physicist, found high concentrations of cosmic dust in undisturbed polar ice from Greenland at ice-age depths. He determined the amount of cosmic dust in the ice samples by measuring the amount of iridium, a metal that is rare on Earth but abundant in extraterrestrial material. The old uniformitarian assumption was that the rate of cosmic dust depositing in the earth would not have change over millions of years, but LaViolette found unusually high concentrations in his samples, and other evidence of a cosmic visitor during ice age times."
Or try this site, http://www.unibg.it/dmsia/dynamics/apollo.html Apollo objects/ocean impacts v continental. "After about 1,300 years of cold and aridity, the Younger Dryas (the last ice age) seems to have ended in the space of only a few decades (various estimates from ice core climate indicators range from 20 - 70 years for this sudden transition) when conditions became as warm as they are today. Around half of the warming seems to have occurred in the space of a single span of 15 years, according to the latest detailed analyses of the Greenland ice core record (Taylor et al. 1997)."
And "University of California researchers have solved a longstanding mystery for scientists trying to understand how Earth's climate can quickly shift between cold and warm modes.
The mystery revolves around the source of a rapid change in the geochemistry of oceanic carbon that occurred just as the last ice age ended ....
Based on analyses of carbon stored in tiny fossil seashells, the UC geologists suggest that the chemical change occurred because of dramatic shifts in ocean circulation.
The authors are geology professors Howard Spero of UC Davis and David Lea of UC Santa Barbara."
A cosmic visitor (meteors) impacting and shattering the ocean floor certainly would explain that. Well, this is one of those issues that may take some time, but eventually the existence of mu and Atlantis will become widely recognized.
