The subsidence of land (2)

“… certain biological evidence … shows that continuous land united Greenland and north-west Europe as late as post-glacial times … this landmass ‘… sank beneath the sea at the end of the Ice Age.’ “

“Presumably these crustal disturbances – collapses, they were nothing less – occurred more or less simultaneously with the subsidence of the entire North Atlantic floor between Greenland and Norway by some 9,000 ft ((2750m), a convulsion which Forrest believed took place ‘since the Ice Age.’ … these tremendous changes occurred synchronously with the breakup and drowning of the greater part of Fennoscandia, a now-submerged northern landmass formerly connecting Spitzbergen with northern Eurasia.”

“Leaving the Atlantic for the Indian Ocean we find in the latter interesting evidence for the geologically recent submergence of extensive landmasses or series of large islands which Wallace called the great Southern Continent. This submergence was apparently yet another facet of the global catastrophe under discussion and, as in so many other areas, here also it was accompanied by stupendous volcanic activity.

Records of this were recovered by the Swedish survey ship Albatross in 1947 when, for several hundred miles south-east of Sri Lanka, it sailed over a vast and continuous plateau of hardened lava. This filled almost all the earlier valleys of the sea-bed and gave the ocean floor a singularly level surface.”

“According to HF Blanford, the eruption of this material may have been synchronous with the sinking of Wallace’s Southern Continent, of which he believed the Seychelles, Mauritius, the Adas Bank, the Laccadives, Maldives and Chagos island groups, and the Saya de Malha (Mulha) are the last surviving remnants. To Blanford’s list can also be added Sri Lanka, for it is believed to have been severed from the Indian state of Madras ‘in sub-recent times.’ “
