...the upper portions of the northern hemisphere would have been locked in ice, and for hundreds of miles south of the ice far too cold for high population densities. Civilizations then, even more so than they are today, would have concentrated most of their populations along coastal continental regions or on islands out at sea. The sea levels before this event would have been substantially lower than they are today. Much more than the 300 or so feet that scientists claim they have risen since the melting of the glaciers.

I find it extremely difficult to believe that human culture and organized civilization only date back to 6000-8000bc.
Yet how could so much evidence of past civilizations be so reclusive to confirm?
I have a theory that I hope that others on this site could comment on. I have been dwelling on this topic since I read the news of the confirmation by scientists of an airborne comet detonation over south central Canada dated around 10500 bc.
The headline with this news was that it was the possible catalyst for the extinction of the mammoths.
Using the Shoemaker-Levy comet impact on Jupiter as a model, could a fragmented comet of many small and/or large sections have impacted earth during the period of this impact discovery in Canada and we have only found evidence in one area so far?
Using the general latitude in Canada of this detonation and tracing it around the globe a comet fragment large enough to impact could have hit the Atlantic or Pacific leaving no visible trace and smaller airborne detonations were possible from western Europe all the way to the Pacific.
A highly fragmented comet detonating in earths atmosphere at that latitude not only would have created the conditions sufficient enough to cause rapid, massive melting of the northern glaciers it would also have introduced an enormous amount of new water vapor to our planet.
Can we say rain for 40 days and 40 nights? A combination of the rapid melting of the northern glaciers and the added newly introduced water to our planet would not only have caused a sudden, extreme rise in sea levels (beyond what scientists say is possible by only the melting of the glaciers),
it would also introduce an enormous added weight burden on the crust of our planet.
This added weight would have created extreme seismic activity, volcanic eruptions and tectonic plate movements.
They calculate this based only on the existing water on our planet that the glaciers would have contained- not including the additional water introduced by the comet.

I have some theory about our true history, remember this is only speculation.
It seems to me that the oldest known religions are pagan in nature. They seem to have been worldwide and still exist in primitive tribal cultures.
These beliefs/ cultures seem to live as one with nature, the whole giving as much as you take kinda thing.
There are theory's that a ancient nuke war occurred on Earth in the distant past as discussed here Link on ATS
I believe the world embraced paganism after this event both to heal the planet and the people who survived. This is also why I believe we are not taught about this past advanced civilization...If we understand our past we are less likely to repeat it.
