The Flem-Aths reference another of Hapgood's books, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, to discuss the fact that the 1513 Piri Re's map accurately disclosed Antarctica's coastline. This map could only have been created from knowledge of Antarctica's coastline when it was free of ice! On page 128 the Flem-Aths give us a quote from Lt. Colonel Harold Z. Ohlmeyer of the 8th Reconnaissance Technical Squadron in July, 1960 to Charles Hapgood: 'This indicates the coastline had been mapped before it was covered by the ice cap. The ice cap in this region is now about a mile thick. We have no idea how the data on this map can be reconciled with the supposed state of geographic knowledge in 1513.' The gist of this information is that the land that is now Antarctica and the South Pole was located somewhere else on the earth's surface where it was not subject to heavy, unmelting snowfall. Also, there existed a civilization capable of navigating the continental coastlines and generating accurate maps based on the knowledge that the earth is spherical. Further, this civilization would necessarily predate our present historical time frame of 10,000 years.
