During every pole shift some land, particularly coastal land near a widening ocean rift, submerges. This has been the case on the eastern seaboard of the US, and in the Caribbean. Traces of a submerged civilization can be seen under the waves off Bermuda - roads, sign posts, and walls. Who lived there, and where, if anywhere, did this civilization go? This civilization was no more advanced than the ancient Mayan and Incan civilizations, and came from the same base. Where local Indians and slave labor brought from Africa formed the bulk of the populace, the ruling elite was, at that time, the giant hominoids from the 12th Planet, who have left their footprints in many lands. This land has been dragged down over successive pole shifts, to its present depth, so slipping under the waves was not as dramatic as it might seem. Following the tidal waves that always accompany a pole shift the land was permanently changed, low lying areas now under water. As the melting poles soon cause the oceans to encroach on the shorelines, the surviving inhabitants are forced to flee inland, and thus the historical record tends to get lost.
