    Agriculture and the domestication of cows happened about 10 or 11 thousand years ago. That's what gave us cities and modern civilisation. We have archeological evidence for this supposition I believe.

    The native American Indians were a good example of how hunter gatherers just don't progress past an effective model. Farmers have surplus food and surplus time, trade is a way of life.

    So your premise rests on false assumptions.

    There's a theory that the Great Pyramid is some form of geo-transducer, constructed to convert telluric energies into electrical energy for local use (power plant theory). This could be seen as being in line with a technological manner of advancement that is more honed to nature and its phenomena, than our current incarnation of human advancement.

    In other words, a civilization so in tune to the unseen forces, to the point of harnessing them for mechanical use, can easily be assumed to have avoided, or simply not developed, things like our modern day plastics.

    Such a structure would indicate an entirely different path of technological progression.

    Which are you referring to particularly?

    Because nobody knows who built a lot of these ancient sites. Teotihuacan is a great example. The Aztecs merely settled its ruins, but had no part in its construction. They themselves only spoke tales about the supposed builders.

    Natives had cataclysm stories as well. Arizona's Pima Indians said that their ancestors came from an island at the center of the world, before it sank beneath the waves (Atlantis refugees?).

    Of course not. The archaeological evidence is suspiciously...not there at all.

    I re-read through this thread. The TS didn't mention 12,000 years ago in his first post nor did he define "advanced" at that time. I think some people are now hung up on 12,000 years ago (evidence of a great flood around 12,000 years ago) and "advanced" as defined within our current level of tech.

    If we start talking about 5,000 years ago instead of 12,000 we put the timeline nearly 2,500 years before Mesopotamia if my math is correct which it may not be. If we define "advanced" as structure-building, ocean traveling, or having tooling and metallurgy then the possibility of a lost civilization increases IMO. It's easier to imagine that we might find evidence of a civilization from 5,000 years ago that had boats and buildings than it is to imagine one from 13,000 years ago that had all of that and cable TV.

    We're still finding ruins today using our current known satellite tech. Who knows what the future holds.

    I used to be a hardcore believer in this, just got done reading a book that changed my perspective a bit. I still think humanity was "advanced" in prehistory, but I used to be really generous with how advanced and how far back I went.

    Civilization popped up around 9,000 years ago because of agriculture, but places like Gobekli Tepe paint a different picture. We can find advanced stone age tools sandwhiched in between times of total primitivity, up until around 50,000 years ago when "modern" humans began consistently making advanced tools and crafts. What this seems to mean is that humanity flourishes when we spread ideas and preserve them.

    This makes me think that humanity had 50,000 years of development, in that time I think they probably rose to an "advanced" state before the great melting 12,000 years ago. If it took a few thousand years to come back up, it probably only had time to pop up once before before a cataclysm knocked it back down.

    I think the biggest fallacy is thinking it had to look like our civilization to be advanced, like we're the end goal for humanity. We're a branch of humanity is all. Our knowledge is fragile, losing it resets us entirely, we could have had an established agrarian civilization rise and fall before we cemented ourselves today. If anything we're vulnerable to that loss of knowledge with just a solar event knocking us off the electrical grid.

    don't try to set me up i'm not the troglodyte you'd like me to be.... those are in question but i'd say things/places like baalbek or Derinkuyu or tiwanacu and pumapunku... now go ahead and look up the official explanation and skeptics debunking, copy and paste call me a moron and we can move on...

    I don't know about more advanced. They had larger brain casings but ours have actually shrunk in the past few thousand years, leading scientists to think it's more so how efficient the wiring is than how big the brain is. There's not a lot of archeological sites that show equal sophistication to homo sapien sapiens, and the few we have could actually be human sites crossing over since they would share the same safe spaces over thousands of years. I love me some Neanderthals though, they were badass.

    There is also a thought that there is possibly ancient unknown civilizations under the ice in Antarctica. I think there is still so much we don't know about this planet and the history of our species. Anatomically modern humans have been around for 200,000 years. Think about how long that is. Geologists like Randall Carlson have been collecting data on these possible events in the past that may have sort of reset humanity and likely its happened over and over, not just once or twice.

    I saw one of Rogan's podcasts recently where he was talking about how all of our knowledge is becoming digital so that if anything happens in the future that resets civilization, almost all of our knowledge will be lost because it won't be written down anymore, it will all be stored digitally and instantly destroyed.

    Well for one thing these civilizations might only have mostly items of cloth or wood so no, there wouldn't be much left after 12,000 years. I mean we found Gobekli Tepe which is 11,000+ years old and the only reason we got lucky and found that is because its stone monoliths.

    Even our civilization, after 12,000 years there would be fuck all left except plastics probably. Our major downtown areas like Chicago or L.A. would be swallowed up by the Earth over the course of 12 millennia.

    Concrete foundations would probably remain. But yeah, it's entirely feasible that you could have a real civilization that doesn't show many signs after nature reclaims it.
