Unless every country on Earth was effected by this disaster I cant see how we would revert to cavemen. Most countries have their own facteries and produce their own goods. If something were to happen somewhere then it could just get help from other nations until it can land back on its feet. Some people say how Atlantis had a nuclear war with India or around that area and it set us back a thousand years. That or a whole bunch of meteorites hitting the Earth is the only way I could see something like this happening.

This is exactly what I was talking about when I mentioned a world wide disaster. Say, for instance, a fairly large asteroid roughly two-three miles wide impacted roughly around the center of Africa. In a very short time the entire planet would probably be enveloped by a thick shroud of dust, possibly affecting communications, and soon after food would become scarce. Soon oil shortages would cause massive death around the world as people would succumb to the cold and panic would ensue.
