Are there any continents that have been raised?


s we have seen previously, the quantities of magma, which would have been displaced, have been much too important to be projected into the air, or to have covered the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean. We can therefore assume that the largest amount had found its way elsewhere. We can easily imagine that the Earth, which is mainly composed of soft materials, has been depressed by an external force somewhere in the Atlantic, or to its board. This force would have been likely the impact of an asteroid or comet, moving in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Is also remaining the possibility, as we have already seen earlier, that the Azores Islands have been a small tectonic plate, caught between the American, Eurasian and African tectonic plates, which could have lost its support. This assumption, however, requires the presence of a tectonic fault on either side of the island. A detailed examination of the floor of the Atlantic Ocean between the islands of the Azores and the continental base of the European plate, however, does not show such a north-south fault between the European coast and the islands of the Azores. It's therefore unlikely that this small plate could have sunk this way into the bottom of the ocean.

We can ask ourselves if these few tens of millions of cubic kilometers of magma, which disappeared below the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, could not have found its place below other continents, which would have been raised in this case. The Australian plate and the South American plate are among the applicants.

The Australian plate:

The Australian plate shows indeed a curiosity by the fact that the waters between Australia and New Guinea aren't very deep. To know why this is a curiosity, we must recall that the level of the oceans and seas were once between 100 meters and 130 meters lower and New Guinea and Australia would normally have formed a single continent for at least a few million years. We know, on the other hand, that this was probably not the case because of the difference in the flora and fauna between New Guinea and Australia. We know for example that New Guinea has not and never had kangaroos and koalas. This lack of kangaroos and koalas on the island New Guinea could mean that there had never been a bridge between them. According to data of today, on the other hand, lowering the level of the oceans and seas by more than twenty meters shows such a bridge between Australia and New Guinea. So, on the basis of these findings, as we saw earlier, such a bridge has likely never existed. We can therefore assume that the tectonic plate on which Australia and New Guinea are, has been raised with a value equal to the rising waters resulting from the melting of the Ice Age. What is interesting to observe is the fact that Australia is the antithesis of the Bermuda Triangle!

The South American plate:

Why South America? Is there something special with the South American continent? These are the questions we should ask ourselves. There are actually many sources, among them books written by Mr Otto H Muck, Charles Berliz and Erich von Däniken, who all the three mentioned, for different reasons, the possibility that the South American continent has been raised. Some of these writers and even some scientists do not exclude a lateral shift at the same time that the continent would have been raised. This idea is reinforced by the allure of the Inca fortress of “Sacsayhuaman”, we can easily confuse with old port buildings. However, there are other clues, the coastline should have been much higher, even up to two thousand meters of altitude. We can also file among these signs of movement of the South American continent, the famous “Ovnidrome” formed by lines and over-sized drawings of the plains of “Nazca”, of which we don't know, up to today, the reasons for being there. While some prefer to see in these drawings and lines a sort of aerodrome, or even a “Ovnidrome”, we should rather consider that this is a sort of astronomical calendar. The fact that nobody so far could establish a relationship between these lines and any astronomic constellation, doesn't exclude the existence of such a relationship in the past. Were they religious indicators, have they served as a calendar to determine when we had to work fields, the best moments of the fishing and hunting, no one knows. We can't exclude, in the case of a timetable, that the drawings and lines have lost their reason of being, due to a shifting of the continental plate.

Based on these findings, we can admit that there is a strong likelihood that the Earth has undergone a substantial change of it parameters of rotation and location of continents.
