The Antikythera Mechanism

An ancient astronomical calculator made at the end of the 2nd century BC was amazingly accurate and more complex than any instrument for the next 1,000 years, scientists said on Wednesday.

Most people do not realize how advanced ancient cultures were. Stones cut with diamond-laser sharp precision found in South American ruins. The Egyptians used batteries. Accurate maps of Antarctica, before it was covered in ice.

There are many scientists that believe there was a great culture that inhabited the Earth up to 12 thousand years ago. These people traveled the earth almost as easily as we do today (albeit no airplanes). There are many names for this race of people, more commonly referred to Atlantians. Not the fable of a continent consumed by the ocean, but of an actual race of people who were master explorers, navigators and astronomers. But a planetary catastrophe ended their culture and scattered the survivors. But traces of their shared heritage can be found throughout the world.

Sounds like sci-fi fantasy doesn't it?

Well, the ancient device described about sounds exactly like what you would find in
The Atlantis Blueprint, which gives a well detailed and fact based look into this civilization.

It's not tought in schools kids, so before you snicker at the notion, look again at The Antikythera Mechanism. That's as real as it gets.
