I have become interested in all this galactic alignment talk from reading the many different posts here. I don't wanna discuss wether or not the world will end but rather what has happend on earlier occassions.
So far what I could find myself was that the last aligment took place during the ending of our last ice age.
But what happend in the one before that?
The reason for my pondering is that if I imagine the alignments as being somewhat like an earthly year where we have summer on one side and winter on the other, what did the earth look like around the alignment before our iceage?[/qoute]
Somewhat like today, yes.
I read a little about the theory on the Auric Time Scale and it suggests that the closer we get to the alignment the frequency on dramatic occurances increase.
This is a theory that someone came up with. It actually doesn't match the physical evidence (the ancient bones, pollens, stream bed deposits, etc, etc) but this hasn't stopped them from promoting it. Well-meaning folks who haven't googled for info on ice ages may fall into the trap of believing it.
So did earth experience more and more dramatic changes, culminating in extreme changes around the alignment before the iceage alignment? or was it mere coinsidence that the iceage laid during the last aligment?
The ice age lasted from about 20,000 years ago to about 10,000 years ago... so would have seen 3 or more of these 'galactic alignments'. Homo sapeins as a species has been around for about 75,000 years or so, meaning that they'd have seen well over 20 of these "alignments". Hominids that are considered human beings have been around for over 5 million years, and so on and so forth on back through history.
Use wikipedia to find 'Malinkovitch cycle' in your own language. That will explain ice ages better. You can ask more questions about this and we'll be glad to answer them.
Here's the English language page on these cycles;
