The science for the younger drays boundry event, the so called clovis comet, is solid.
Starting with the astronomical work of Whipple, then Napier and Clube, shows that the current comet Enke is just the remnant of a much larger object(100 km diameter), possibly a centaur object, that was injected into a inner solar earth crossing orbit around 25,000 years ago. The object started to break up around 14Kya and caused a oeriod of very increased impact activity on earth. The major event happen approx 12.9 kya, but was isloated to a singular event.
It was a series of events that really didnt taper off until the early iron age. The signals can be found in the Greenland Ice cores as spikes of platinum iridium ammonia and extra terrestrial dust grains peaks.
There are dozens of published peer reviewed papers, by insitutions from around the world that adress the evidence, evidence that includes high temp melt products, that there is no terrestrial mechanism to produce, rare forms of carbon(various diamond types that have been shown to be only produced by impacts) to wide spread evidence of massive bio mass burning( that includes the above evidence).
These events arent limited to the 12.9kya event but happened repeatedly throught the early and mid holocene, the first archeologists to take notice were members of the Yale team working in mesopotamia starting in the late seventies, with soil scientist M.A Courty finding periodic widespread burning of biomass at several ancient mesopotamian sites, going back 7k years, with several major events in the 3rd and 4th millenia bc.
All that being said, hate to say it and burst everyones internet Atlantis bubble, it had nothing to do with the loss of atlantis, which is a fictional state, based on the real Minoan empire, which collapsed due to the eruption of Thera.

One of the theories with known scientific basis of the sibling of Atlantis is a chain reaction of massive, collapsing gas chambers within the crust beneath the surface. The gas explodes or leaks out, the former "bubble" collapses, and everything above it falls down to fill the space. If Atlantis had the right (wrong) geological features, an entire continent could collapse and "sink" within a day or less.
My guess is a continent crashing into the ocean could raise waters pretty drastically. Whether enough to flood the world for 40 days, I don't know. That's just a viable, but unproven possibility.
