APRIMITIVEPLACE – Antarctica the remote and ice-covered continent, has long been a source of mystery and speculation. One of the most intriguing theories is the existence of “Terra Infinita,” a vast landmass hidden behind Antarctica’s ice wall.
The theory of Terra Infinita was first introduced by Charles Hapgood, an American geographer and author, in 1958. Hapgood argued that Antarctica was once a fertile and warm continent, but that around 13,000 years ago, a major catastrophe caused the continent to become ice-covered. This catastrophe also caused a shift in the Earth’s poles, which hid Terra Infinita from view.
Hapgood supported his theory with some evidence, including ancient maps that show an unknown continent in the location of Antarctica. He also claimed that there is geological evidence to suggest that Antarctica once had a warmer climate.
The theory of Terra Infinita has been debunked by most scientists, who argue that there is not enough evidence to support it. They argue that the ancient maps used by Hapgood are inaccurate and that the geological evidence he used can be explained by other natural phenomena.
However, even though the theory of Terra Infinita has been debunked, there are still people who believe it is true. Some people believe that Terra Infinita is home to a lost ancient civilization, while others believe it is a gateway to another dimension.
The mystery of Terra Infinita is likely to remain a mystery for some time to come. However, it is a fascinating example of how human imagination can take us to places we never thought possible.
