I am not a geologist, nor do I assume to know global history as it pertains to geophysics, but after having read and viewed many things otherwise
unrelated, I began to wonder, what happened to the world between 12000 and 12500 years ago?
The three things that I can readily mention are these:
1. The sinking of Atlantis
2. The last Great Ice Age
3. The coincidental orientation of ancient structures as they appear to constellations
Last night on the Discovery Channel, they were doing a show called "Noah's Ark, the True Story", and in it, they mentioned that there is no way the
entire world, mountians included, could have been covered with water by any means, without the effects killing all of life (size/number of comets
would have burned off the atmosphere, not enough free water in all the rivers/lakes/ice, if the lands were "floating", all the water would make the
lands like quicksand, so much moisture in the air would make people drown just by breathing). It went to explain how the Noah story was a retelling
of the Sumerian tale. (There was more to it, but that's for a different thread).
I am wondering, though, if something celestrial could have occured, thus drawing the attention of man towards the heavens, making them feel as if they
needed to replicate the stars on earth... as if to know when things are correct/warn if something is affecting the world (axis tilt, gravitational
Just by the three above examples, within this time frame, I am under the impression (other then having too much free time to think of stuff like
this), that something altered the orbit of the earth. The ancient people, being already familiar with the heavens, sought to make things right by
making the heavens on earth. While under the effect of this... event... gravitional forces pulled at the waters, sinking the land of Atlantis (and
creating many Deluge myths). When the earth finally returned to the norm (much as a spinning top does when having experienced an outside influence),
the waters returned to normal... but because of the global effect on the climate from having been quickly altered, the water formed into ice (there
are many scientists under the impression that the Ice Ages were a quick and sudden event, and there are too many thread/post links on ATS to mention
I really hope I explained the above correctly. I'm sure after posting this, a different way of expression will make itself clear... I think
Velykovski was on this train-of-thought; I'll have to look more into it. Or maybe I am seeing too much as it is, by trying to compare different
things together... oh well, such is the way...
