Many years ago as I was searching and learning regarding Aztlan, the Aztec and the key feature Lake Copala, lets face it, you are not going to find Aztlan if you cannot find the lake, I recall reading the casual comments regarding the maps of old. It would seem that who ever was doing the writing like to tell the reader what the Cartographers thought, and what the Spanish thought. This is a similar problem I run into today in scriptural studies, the modern scholarly authors are always telling us what the prophets of old “actually” meant, I never could buy into the idea that today’s scholars or anyone living today know more about what the ancient prophets meant, than what the prophets actually said. I think they said what they meant and meant what they said.
I tend to believe the Cartographers of old knew more about what they were drawing, and what they thought than those of today whom without any supporting reference tell us what the cartographer thought.
One of these things we were told was that the Spanish thought that
was an Island, where would the Cartographers
get such a crazy idea? Well, likely because of all the maps they had access to
when they created their map, and, surprise! As it turns out, California WAS an Island in the past, or very near to it, this is not a
hypothesis, it is a fact. If you search the various cretaceous maps, although they are quite general, you will see the
very high probability. The problem is, this was in the cretaceous period, at a
time science attributes to having existed 60+ million years ago, certainly no
man who ever lived could have seen California
as an island right?
Another of these things which I had read is that the cartographers were mistaken in showing that the gulf of California extended at one time, as far as even
Las Vegas. Well once again, since I had read
this it would seem it is a proven fact and even some scientists are beginning
to believe and see that this was the case in the not so distant past rather than million of
years ago, there are a few stories documented in the past of ships sailing into
this ancient Salton sea and becoming stranded, and references to a river some 7 leguas wide... Yet here again, the maps of old show exactly this.
One other key feature which was associated with several legends regarding 7 cities, on an island, in a sea, the mythical place called Aztlan, another called it Avlon and one a little more ancient referred to by Plato as Atlan-tis, but the key to finding this mythical place of Aztlan was to find the elusive lake Copala. The authors of the past told us that the Spanish learned of this place from the Aztec, but the fact is, those early explorers knew of this place long before even
thought of coming here. We were told the Cartographers “thought” the lake
existed and so they placed it on the maps. Well once again it is a known fact
that in the very place where this mysterious lake should be, there was indeed
an ancient lake and again, geologist with their wonderful and flawless dating
system, state that this lake hasn’t been in existence for 33 million years,
geologist call it Lake Uinta. I have in former articles shown the uncanny
resemblance of this 33 million year old lake and the mysterious Lake Copala on the old Latin
maps. Why is Aztlan important? With some research, it will come to you... Many tribes of the past refer to it as "Turtle Island"
On 3 of French maps it shows a river flowing east from the mysterious presumed lake Copala, the Salt Sea which Humboldt was told of that the river he was following lead to, but he never made it to, yet somehow the cartographer managed to capture not only its near correct location but the very image of it, how could this be? We all know that from the location of Lake Uinta, if a river was flowing east it would have to circumvent the Northern Colorado mountains before it entered the upper waters of the Missourri, is it possible that in times past a river flowed East out of the basin? Well yes, but of course this was “millions” of years ago… This one is yet to be proven… But where did all the cartographers get this information of this apparent Lake Uinta? And some showing a river that once flowed east from it? The Gulf of California extending at times as far as Las Vegas? California being an Island?
Keep in mind, we know so little about the history of this continent let alone its geography including and more so the time table, and the things I have proposed as possibilities are much less ridiculous than the THEORIES of Pangea, Continental Drift, Polar Wandering and an Ice age let alone a “last” one… The things that they try to convince us of regarding geologic feature age, and taught as if it were a fact, did not occur as far back as they believe or have been taught to believe… the inconsistencies just keep coming, telling us that something is wrong with the dating system, but those who control the various forms of media keep creating their excuses… Many do not understand that the outlandish dates are as a result of a flawed dating system due to lack of understanding. Without going into that subject you can read more here……
Well, with these tales of what the Spanish or early explorers thought, an occasional map was shown, I always thought there were just a few… it wouldn’t be for another 15 years that I discovered that there are not just a few, it would seem that every known cartographer of various countries with the exception of those who did not have access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople which after 1000 years or better, was mysteriously destroyed by fire and a majority of its contents, or were they? Yet some how they were all including the same features, not to mention capturing the very likeness of this 33 Million year old lake Uinta, I’m sure it is all just a coincident. I have seen at least 20 different digital maps made by various Cartographers, and there are several more, why is it a majority included these features? I believe this can be in part answer by one cartographer’s notes…
