Are ruins of a universal ancient civilization submerged?

Despite our cultural, traditional, religious, and linguistic differences, humans are often alike. That is not surprising because we all belong to the same race.

When we study our ancient past, we find striking similarities between cultures separated by vast distances.


Ancient people who were not supposed to have contacted each other constructed almost identical buildings, used the same symbols, and relied on similar religious rites in their daily lives.


There is no doubt prehistoric civilizations shared universal scientific and technological knowledge.

Are these striking ancient similarities we encounter world-wide a result of a universal mind or rather a legacy of a universal ancient civilization that gave birth to all other ancient cultures across the world?


Was there once a global mother civilization that predated all ancestral civilizations?

Today, Mesopotamia is recognized as the cradle of civilization, but in recent years, some scholars have challenged this theory.

"More and more evidence confirms a very brave thesis, according to which the Balkan Peninsula, rather than ancient Mesopotamia that is the cradle of our civilization.

The evidence of a little-known culture preceding Egyptian and even Sumerian culture has been attracting the attention of researchers, turning everything we know about antiquity upside down.

Remains of this ancient society have gradually been emerging from the ashes of human history, taking us some 6-7 millennia back in time when a highly-advanced unknown civilization flourished in our lands, a period which preceded Sumer and Akkad by at least one millennium." 1

It is true that around 8,000 years ago, people in Mesopotamia practiced agriculture and ancient Sumerians led the foundation of what is today defined as a civilization.


We cannot dispute the fact that Mesopotamia changed the world. Still, we also cannot ignore that there are ancient underwater ruins that pre-date the Sumerian civilization.


These structures testify to the existence of even older cultures present on our planet.

As an example, we can mention Dwarka has long been considered a mythic place.


However, the discovery of underwater ruin in the Gulf of Cambay has confirmed Dwarka did exist, and the vast city,

"is believed to pre-date the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.


Mainstream scientists maintain that ancient Indian culture/civilization goes back some 4-5 thousand years. Yet the ruins below the Gulf of Cambay go back at least 9 thousand years, i.e. to the time when the area submerged underwater.

This means that the city must have existed before the flooding, i.e. at least 9 thousand years ago." 2

We must also consider the fact that most of our oceans remain unexplored.


This means we cannot dismiss the possibility that even older than 9,000 years can lie hidden in the waters awaiting our discovery.

Can remains of a universal prehistoric civilization be submerged? It is certainly possible...

There are so many similarities between ancient civilizations that it impossible to discuss all of them in this article, but we can mention a few examples.

Research of connection between ancient people reveals that pyramids and dolmens were standard in different parts of the world.

"Most people think of Egypt when the word 'pyramid' is mentioned.


Although the Egyptian pyramids are today most well-known and keep attracting tourists, we must not forget that pyramids were built worldwide in ancient times.


Ancient dolmens are yet another great example of ancient universal thinking.


It is obvious the ancient traditions were the same despite the vast distance separating these cultures. Let us also keep in mind that the builders of the dolmens were unrelated to each other.


Intriguing, isn't it?" 3

We find hand paintings depicted in rock art around the world and for some unknown reason, our ancestors carved the spiral symbol on countless rocks, sculptures, boulders, and ancient cave walls worldwide.


There are of course different opinions,

"as to how far these civilizations can be regarded as isolated and separate; but no doubt history reveals large scale social unities with easily recognized cultural characteristics.


Further, these unities exhibit periods of growth maturity and decline: this phenomenon seems to be universal, for it is found in the civilizations of Central America as well as in those of the old world.


It is indeed an amazing panorama which history reveals; there can be no doubt about the general nature of the course of events, however obscure the details may be.


Civilizations go up hill and down hill with a certain inevitability." 4

It is obvious our ancestors on different continents had more in common than we previously thought.


it is valid to ask whether this universal knowledge was a legacy of a long-gone mother culture whose people survived a catastrophe and created new civilizations across the world?
