New evidence supports exploding asteroid 12,900 years ago over Canada.

CINCINNATI, July 7 (UPI) -- U.S. scientists say evidence found recently in Ohio and Indiana supports the theory of a giant object exploding 12,900 years ago over Canada.

That theory -- advanced by geophysicist Allen West -- posits a comet or asteroid exploded just above the Earth's surface over what is now Canada, setting large parts of the northern hemisphere ablaze.

The new evidence was discovered by University of Cincinnati Assistant Professor Ken Tankersley, working with West and Indiana Geological Society Research Scientist Nelson Schaffer. They said samples of diamonds, gold and silver offers the strongest support yet for the exploding comet or asteroid theory.

This is great information. The ancient meso americans wrote on cave walls and told the story of how something great in the sky destroyed their homeland.

The most interesting part about this story is it lends creadence to the destruction of Atlantis or Meso Americas by global flooding and what the ancients described as the 'other' moon fell from the sky.

This is also the same time as the ice age was in north america. Some scientits believe that this event could of kick started the end of the ice age in the north most likely causing massive flooding after the catacalysm of the asteroid which most likely killed many of the animals that exsited in North America.

There is alot of ancient evidence telling the tale of this cataclysm.

Here is another link People with Blue Eyes were Genetically Mutated 10,000 Years Ago.

Here is clipping from a Atlanits in cuba researcher.

Rumours of Cataclysm

Following Columbus' celebrated landfall in the Bahamas in 1492, Spanish explorers heard stories from the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean and Bahamas that spoke of a flood which had devastated the archipelagos. It was said to have split apart a much larger landmass, killing the inhabitants and leaving the many thousands and islands and cays that remain today. Some of these stories include clues which hint at a much greater catastrophe. One from Tobago speaks of 'the ole moon breaking', while others from Venezuela and the Yucatan allude to a period of darkness, fire falling from the sky and the presence overhead of a fiery snake. Had some cosmic impact caused a massive cataclysm that devastated the Bahamas and Caribbean?

The Carolina Bays Comet

The presence of around 500,000 elliptical craters, ranging from a few hundred metres to 11 kilometres in size, across the entire eastern seaboard of the United States, from New Jersey down to Miami, is perhaps the greatest clue. Modern theories are that these so-called Carolina Bays (after the states in which they were first noted during aerial surveys in the 1920s) were caused by a comet which entered the earth's atmosphere from the north-west over Alaska and disintegrated into millions of pieces that detonated above the ground, very much in the manner of the small comet which caused the Tunguska event in Siberia in June 1908.

The effects of the catastrophe, some time around the end of the last Ice Age, were extreme. Not only would it have caused a wall of fire and wind, which would have laid flat large areas of Tundra forest and decimated flora and fauna, but the resulting dust clouds would have created a 'nuclear winter' which seems to have resulted in a temporary re-advance of the ice fields that had covered much of North America, Europe and Asia for the previous 40,000 years. Moreover, hundreds and thousands of fragments of the comet falling in the western Atlantic basin would have produced tsunami waves of immense proportions which would have temporarily drowned both the eastern seaboard of the United States and the islands of the Bahamas and Caribbean, wiping out entire populations (a few must have got away to tell the tale, as it told in the creation myths of the indigenous peoples of both Central and North America, and also those of the Caribbean).

shows you, think the earth has been through worse times that a little bit of CO2 action!

According to Hopi History we are in our fourth world, last one destroyed by fire, water, and ice. The hopi survived by going underground.

reply to post by IvanZana

The earth's womb has, and always will be a valuable asset in times of great peril.

I'm pretty certain that going underground is a viable solution to a great number of the problems faced by society in this day and age, actually.

Thank you for presenting a well put together thread, a seemingly rare thing in recent days.

I will review the information, and hopefully have comments/questions.

Here we go again with the whole Atlantis myth. The fact of the matter is that there's no credible evidence that would suggest the existence of such a highly civilized race of peoples. Trying to link the myth of Atlantis with new evidence for an asteroid impact within the same time-frame only further proves that people are grasping at straws when it comes to this topic.

Yet another piece of information which adds to theory of past civilizations exisiting in our ancient past.

Great find Ivan!

While we still don't have concrete proof of past civilizations of the ilk of Atlantis and Mu, we seem to have one obvious trend:

There is more data being found which supports the idea of ancient advanced civilizations than data being found that disproves the idea.

Combine this with the inumerable creation myths and legends of ancient tribal peoples the world over and i think a solid case is being built.

It is becoming increasingly foolish to write such concepts off as mere fantasy

Great find indeed

Only I would like to quibble with the interpretation of the geophysicist as to what actually happened.

Oh yes, that was a humongous explosion.

But it was not caused by an "exploding asteroid."

It was the result of one or more nuclear missiles, possibly even antimatter missiles -- which physicist, engineer, and former governmental insider, Bob Lazar has testified the Reticulans have in their arsenal

Lazar explains in his documentary and illustrates that antimatter weapons are far more powerful than conventional nuclear devices.

This event was part of the war between the Atalans/Atlanteans and the Zetan-Reptilians/Anunnaki. This is the failed Atalan "war of independence" against the Space Race empire based on Reticulum 4 (whose forces are still here) which resulted in the end of the Atalan civilization.

The 12,900 year ago time line is right on the mark

In ATS I have stated that this war occurred about 13,000 years ago.

At that juncture, the Reticulan orchestrated nuclear holocaust caused: global earthquakes, tidal waves, the tilting of the world on its axis, and The Great Flood which is documented in various ancient cultures.

Thanks OP for bringing this corroborating evidence to our attention.

It will also be interesting to see if we ever figure out what caused the Tunguska blast.. And if we find concrete evidence of it being an asteroid/comet/meteor or whatever, it would pretty much back up what we are learning now with this news story..

We know that these kinds of impacts are not exactly uncommon on large time-scales.

For some reason it reminds me of how we are overdue for a poleshift and how, in fact, the current magnetic field of the earth is still degrading.

The Tunguska blast of 1908 is also a related research project, as it has all the earmarks of a nuclear detonation.

However, in my opinion, the idea that pole shifts are cyclical in nature is inaccurate.

Richard W. Noone wrote a book in which he predicted that, due to cyclical planetary alignment, there would once again be a pole shift and that it would take place on May 5th, 2000.

May 5th, 2000 came and went.

Pole shifts are not cyclical in nature

It takes a great deal of disruptive energy to the environment of a planet -- from without -- in order to cause something like that to happen.

Like a major meteor/asteroid collision.

Or a nuclear holocaust

Ancient Atomic Wars - Best Evidence?

J. Robert Oppenheimer, (1904–1967) the Supervising Scientist of the Manhattan Project was giving a lecture at Rochester University seven years after the first atomic weapon was successfully detonated. After his lecture he opened the floor to a period of questions and answers.

One student asked: “Was the bomb exploded at Alamogordo during the Manhattan Project the first one to be detonated?”

Dr. Oppenheimer’s answer was short but extremely telling. Dr. Oppenheimer said: “Well – yes. In modern times, of course.”
