Years ago He produces evidence from ethnography archaeology oceanography creation stories myths linguistics and DNA analysis to argue that this founding civilization was destroyed by a catastrophic flood caused by a rapid rise in the sea level at the end of the last ice a. Oppenheimer advances the thesis that rapid sea level rise about 8000 years ago forced people living on the Sunda Shelf in southeast Asia then an extensive area of dry land to migrate east and west bringing much of their culture with them The geology genetics and linguistics he rallies in support seem sound When he gets to mythology though his ground becomes much shakier He claims evidence to suggest that themes common to the Middle East and Europe pretty much everything in Genesis 1 8 and a little originated in Sunda But mostly his argument is that when a theme occurs in Sunda it originated there and there was a physical inspiration for it when the same theme occurs elsewhere it came via diffusion In a couple places he buttresses his case with statistical correlations of motifs occurring together but those statistics are weakened by selective interpretation of the myths eg any mention of vegetation becomes a tree and by omission of South American myths perhaps unknown to him at the time which include several of the same motifs His case is strong enough to merit further study particularly regarding an early settlement of Polynesia and the myths he discusses are interesting in themselves But the section on spread of myths must remain in the wild speculation category at least until reliable methods are found to determine how and where myths spread

Eden in the East The Drowned Continent of Southeast Asia

This book completetly changes the established and conventional view of prehistory by relocating the Lost Eden the world's first civilisation to Southeast Asia At the end of the Ice Age Southeast Asia formed a continent twice the size of India which included Indochina Mal. 41719 uote from National Geographic A study published today in Cell adds a surprising new twist to their mystery DNA from a large sampling of living southeast Asians suggests that the ghostly Denisovans may be not one but three distinct kinds of human one of which is almost as different from other Denisovans as they are from NeanderthalsWhat s while the Denisovans lived alongside humans for millennia one group may have outlasted even the Neanderthals who disappeared some 40000 years ago According to the study these Denisovans co existed and mixed with modern humans in New Guinea until at least 30000 years ago but perhaps as recently as 15000 years ago a date that if confirmed means Denisovans were the last known humans save ourselves to walk the Earth Suddenly it s kind of crystalized that the center of diversity for archaic populations is in Islands Southeast Asia says study co author Murray Cox of Massey University New Zealand referring to the Philippines Malaysia and the other archipelagos that make up the vast maritime region of the Asian subcontinent Five stars for times it comes to mind Imagining the now underwater East Asia as it existed for most human time on Earth Exposing the land now covered by the China Sea Yellow Sea etc SundalandFive stars for providing a world view how the end of the Ice Age caused extreme increase in sea level the civilization destroyed and the diaspora Depicts the now underwater world of East Asia where I speculate Sapiens created the first Civilization dating to the Great Flood stars for too much information find re reading a challengeBought an Eden in the East for myself after reading a library copy It now contains many stickies and notes written in margins Some interesting what if material What potential for a fantasy the three era sinking of the world s first civilization a trip around the north Pacific by survivors Oppenheimer s theories seem uite plausible and could provide useful world building blocks the Wiki about Oppenheimer In his book Eden in the East The Drowned Continent of Southeast Asia published in 1998 Oppenheimer makes a case that the rise in ocean levels that accompanied the waning of the ice age as much as 500 feet 150 m during the period 14000 7000 years ago must be taken into account when trying to understand the flow of genes and culture in Eurasia Citing evidence from geology archaeology genetics linguistics and folklore he hypothesizes that the Southeast Asian subcontinent of Sundaland was home to a rich and original culture that was dispersed when Sundaland was mostly submerged and its population moved westward According to Oppenheimer Sundaland s culture may have reached India and Mesopotamia becoming the root for the innovative cultures that developed in those areas page 10 At the height of the Ice Age around 20000 18000 years ago Southeast Asia formed a continent twice the size of India and included what we now call Indo China Malaysia and Indonesia The South China Sea the Gulf of Thailand and the Java Sea which were then all dry formed the connecting parts of the continent Sundaland The flat land area lost by Sundaland Geologically this half sunken continent is termed the Sunda shelf or Sundaland The flat land area lost by Sundaland after the Ice Age was as large as India Eventually only the scattered mountainous island of the Malay archipelago were left A similar and vast swathe of land was also lost from the Pacific coast of Asia Land that formerly stretched between Korea Japan China and Taiwan is now called the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea Today s ports along the present south coastline of China such as Hong Kong were hundreds of miles inland during the Ice AgeThis book discusses the possibility that when the final dramatic rise in water level occurred between about 8000 and 7500 years ago the last of a series of emigration routes went south towards Australia east towards the Pacific west into the Indian Ocean and north into the Asian Mainland In their flight they carried their domestic animals and food plants with them Those in northern Sundaland fled north into Indo China and Asia and founded sophisticated cultures in Southwest China Burma and Tibet Some of the splendid artefacts of these early civilizations are only now being unearthed page 62 Southeast Asia has the highest concentration of flood myths in the world It is an area with few large river deltas and no recent reputation for flooding but it lost than 50 per cent of its landmass after the Ice AgeFor the serious science oriented reader I could not get engaged with an attempted reread The elements of speculation that appealed to me were lost in the vast of amount of uestionable information Would recommend with little enthusiasm A book to be skimmed
