Revenge of John Gault: Actually most major world religions have a flood story in them. Weather this is evidence of a "world wide flood" or the simple fact that most conglomerations of humans occur near rivers, lakes or the ocean. At some point in time, every civilization has had a great flood, but methinks they maybe happened at different times.

I see what you did there.

Hasn't anyone ever done a radar mapping of the terrain under the ice at Antartica? I'd bet it'd be interesting to see how it all actually looks like under all the cold stuff. If they compile the data and release an Atlas of the Antartica I'd very much like to purchase it. However, the blood mixed with gasping sounds of wetness and the coldness, punctuated by warmth of a dying breath. It screams of nothing but giant spiders of the dark plateau of Leng eating brains of children, and TENDONS TASTES OF FEAR filling it with cobwebs and dust as the the children squeal and giggle as the play, searching GNAWED BY A MILLION LAUGHING RATS for weak ones to bite into and devour.

Dear Editor- I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Great Cthulhu. Papa says, "If you see it on Alt.Horror.Cthulhu, it's so," Please tell me the truth, is there a Great Cthulhu who will rise from the watery depth of the Pacific to clear the Earth of all living things? ------Virgina Marsh

Virgina, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the fever of enlightenment given to them by a so-called "enlightened" age. They do not believe in anything unless it carries the weight of scientific authority. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. Reality is that which can be cataloged and measured, to be spooned out in rational doses to the common people. All minds, Virgina, whether they be adult's or children's, are little. In this vast chaos we laughingly call the universe, man is a mere insect, a bug, whose intellect has as much chance of grasping the whole truth, as an ant has of understanding non-Euclidian geometry.

Yes, Virgina, there is a Great Cthulhu. He exists as certainly as the cold unfeelingness of the cosmos exits, and you know that this meaninglessness abounds and gives to your life its highest absurdity. Alas! how comfortable would be the world if there were no Cthulhu! It would be as comforting as if a Santa Claus truly did care and reward children for doing good. There would be childlike faith then, a world of sweet believable poetry and romance to make existence idyllic and appealing. The external light with which childhood fills the world would never end.

Not believe in the Great Cthulhu! You might as well not believe in Hastur or the Necronomicon. You might get your papa's science books and Skeptical Inquirers to see if Cthulhu is mentioned in any historical contexts or if R'lyeh truly does rest under the Pacific Ocean, but even if you did not find either mentioned in your 'holy' books, what would that prove? Nobody sees or knows of Cthulhu, but that is no sign that there is no Great Cthulhu. The most real things in the world are those that we can not know through the senses. Can the headache of your friend be felt by you? No, but his pain affects your life regardless. Do you feel the angst of living a life you never wanted through any of your five senses? No, yet the despair remains. Yet if such realities are known but are never seen, then why should other's ignorance of the unseen lead us to share in their blindness. By what right have they earned your obedience? Nobody can conceive of the inconceivable, including your leaders of thought.

You tear apart the rattle of a baby to see what lies inside to make such noise, but the tiny balls there can not explain or illustrate the fear of a hostile world, that makes that baby clutch and shake that rattle so. Only reaching for insanity can push aside the curtain of our hopes and view with stark madness the emptiness that lies beyond. Is that reality? Is that the truth? To give an answer is to replace the curtain with but one more. And it is this, that makes the Great Cthulhu as true and as real as any veil we place on the chaos beyond. If one must create a meaning, why not the Great Cthulhu. At least the choice is free.

Thank Azathoth! The Great Cthulhu lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virgina, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to await the time when the stars are right again. For with those which eternal lie, with strange eons even death may die.

This Reuters writer is a completely discredited person. Most, if not all of his "writings" are about the Anterctica (as if there is that much to write about). He is a fraud of the highest order, a stuffed shirt, if you will. A faker, a liar and a criminal.

How in the *uck would a 2.5 mile mountain have anything to do with raising global water levels? The damned Alps are 15,774 feet (or 4093 meters) high. How high is the top of the Antarctica? 4093 meters (2.53 miles) Does anyone else see the issue here? They are the same height.. The alps don't have much to do with anything at all. The Rockies are longer and more expansive.

We are talking about a very small portion of this region that is that high. The rest is a mere 600-8000 feet above 0. Now, that is quite tall, but how much is actually ice? They claim to have seen 2.5 miles below the ice (WTF?) Did they ?view it? or drill it?

In how large an area?

The other trouble is that with evaporation. The atmosphere is far more capable of holding moisture than the Antarctica can melt. And... Is it possible for the WHOLE world to melt at once???fark NO.

Someone please beat this person into some semblance of rearrangment.

LonestarJ: I read a book called "Fingerprint of the Gods" a few years back. The author thought that underneath the Antarctic Ice shelf we would find a civilization lost in 11,000 BC. Supposedly the worlds crust "slipped" like an orange peel sliding on an orange, causing massive flooding (i.e. Noah's flood) and sudden freezing of the ice shelf. It was a crazy book!

I read that book too! There is actually a number of authors associated with that guy who believe similar principles. I love reading that crap. The crust moving is based off a theory by Charles Hapsgood who also postulated in another book that this race was responsible for maps of Antarctica that were copied hundred of years ago. He also thinks the arc of the covenant is a weapon hidden in Ethiopia.

I will never get tired of reading these books.

That would be because every civilization started in a river valley and river valleys flood. Once in a while they flood really badly and it gets remembered.

Is that game any good? The only Cthulhu related game I own is Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened. Which is really fun more in it's concept and story than it's gameplay. I also own a book with a similar premise called Shadows Over Baker Street. I think it was the first fanfic to ever get a nod from the estates of both Sir Author Conan Doyle and HP Lovecraft.

My favourite game based on HPL's work is the little known text adventure Anchorhead:

I stopped once I got to the warehouse part, the aiming system is horrible and they suddenly turn it into an extremely lopsided (in favor of the enemies) FPS game and stop giving you health items. Got sick of trying to fight unearthly horrors with a shiatty revolver being fired by a man that can't hold the gun straight even when he's not hopped up on morphine with two broken arms.

You may be right, that 187-foot figure he gave struck me as very Al-Gore-ish, a quick google came up with several (credible) sources which put the sea-level rise from a COMPLETE melt-down at about 16-20 feet. I would believe Science News and Scientific American published articles before I credit a Reuters published article which completely contradicts them.

Yeahhhh, except that before you panic you should realize that (A) the EAIS has actually INCREASED in mass under current conditions for the last decade, and (B) although larger, it's not actually 10X larger than the remainder. Even now.

In other words, even postulating a total melt-down (unlikely even given a century of warmer weather, even more unlikely given the measured effect of warmer weather so far has been an INCREASE), this guy exaggerates the result. So he piles improbability upon improbability upon bad numbers to get his desired result. Like I said, very Al-Gore-ish.

Hey now, the fact that journalists* and politicians are professional liars doesn't mean all the scientists they quote are too. Does the notion of that scientists can detect something without visible light really confuse you or are you just arguing semantics? :)

Whatever you wanna call it, "seeing" through ice with radar is pretty straightforward - Ice has roughly one predictable dielectric constant (basically, speed of radar propagation), and rock has a different one, and contrasts in dielectric constant cause reflections. (Maybe you learned Snell's law in high school physics optics lessons; same general idea: radar is in the electromagical spectrum just like light.) Transmit a pulse and measure the time it takes to return (to nanosecond precision), then multiply that by the speed of radar wave propagation (in meters per second) and you get the two-way travel distance to the reflector. Run a series of these radar echoes over traverse lines and you can build profiles of the subsurface reflectors.

(Actually, since most boundaries involve partial signal reflection partial transmission, what you get from each pulse is a timeseries of positive and negative intensity returns with big magnitudes for the major reflectors; you literally line up these "wiggle plots" next to eachother and interpolate between them to get a 2D profile. Then ya run iterations of processing to improve the quality of imaging by filter out echoes, accounting for off-plane reflectors, recalculate the dielectric constants to higher precision, etc... With the right processing, ground penetrating radar can give some very detailed images of the subsurface. Since radar signal loses intensitiy the farther it travels, you have to amplify the lower echoes and do other things to account for the attenuation but other than that it's very similar to seismic processing.)

Rock-ice is a fairly high-contrast dielectric boundary, but liquid water, being a polar compound, abruptly stops radar, which is how they could "see" water at 2.5mi depth. GPR can also be used to detect transitions different types of rock, soil and so on. Longer radar wavelengths give greater depth, but since radar can only resolve features roughly the size of or larger than the wavelength, longer means lower resolution. This does mean that deeper imaging is less precise, but details as broad as the general shape of mountains or contrasts like water can still be determined reliably.

*Sensationalism and oversimplification is dishonest.
I agree it's farking annoying this asshat author sees the need to go digging for Antarctica stories just so he can sprinkle his global warming fnords all over them.

Who was panicking? I know how to swim.

Yes, EAIS has been growing and seems to be stable. That's a good thing. But in the (granted, completely unlikely) event that both WAIS and EAIS disintegrated tomorrow, a global sea level rise of 190 feet isn't out of the question, because Antarctica really does contain that much water. I don't think he was attempting to incite a panic by stating that; rather he was just quoting an often-used figure without much context.
