    That civilization started in the Fertile Crescent in 5,000BC in Tigris-Euphrates and that our modern civilization absolutely HAS to be and CAN ONLY be the most advanced civilization that ever walked the planet?

    It isn't complete unless you believe that God blessed the US with exceptionalism over all other nations.

    Absolutely not. authors are still re-interpreting what happened at the end of the Roman Republic, while we are pretty certain we know the details since the Romans recorded every day to day event in their government annals.

    So even the passage of millenia fails to reconcile us about those events. Every author seems to have their own take.

    You can say that about modern liberals. It's amazing what they have brought to this country. The Institutions of higher learning. The Art. The Literature. The science. The inventions. The technology.

    Especially the science. The geological sciences and understanding how the earth was created. Climatology. All the biological sciences, including the foundation science of biology, botany and physiology, which of course, is evolution.

    And finally, the terrible struggle the liberals had to endure fighting those who want to keep us in the dark ages.

    You're a fucking idiot. Do you really think that EVERY fucking situation in the world is not only a partisan problem but one caused by conservatives?

    Do us a favor and turn your computer off and leave it off.

    I was thinking of something like this

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk6SWtumdK0&feature=related]YouTube - Underwater City Off of Cuba Part 2 (An Update)[/ame]

    What looks like Tikal or Teotihuacan, except it's underwater off the shores of Cuba.

    When was it built? Is it contemporaneous with the Mayan (nah) Was it built thousands of years before? Was it above sea level before the Ice Age ended, because, Lord know, it takes a ton of effort to built these things and I'm not sure people built them underwater.

    There's some rather large disconnect in our time-line.
