On a Posting Spree - Piri Reis Map

I REALLY need to get out of the house and get to work, I have a couple of jobs that need to get done but before I go... I was doing some research this morning about an ancient artifact that has always interested me, the Piri Reis Map. The Piri Reis Map was a map created about 1513 in Turkey and from the first stories I read contained some really interesting tid-bits of information and could possibly question our understanding of our Civilizations past. After rereading the site I had originally gleened most of my (Supposed) facts from (I mean really who would lie). I found another site that actually did the homework on the map and drew a totally different conclusion. I will post the two sites here and you can decide for yourself. I myself see a lot more light in the second link... Shucks I was really hoping for proof of aliens helping our ancestors... (I will keep looking)

Basically claims that map is spot on and VERY correct...

Might have spent a couple of minutes comparing the Piri Reis Map to ohh I don't know a real map... After looking at the alignments I would have to say this is a pretty realistic interpretation of the map.
