'dating civilizations' by
the lack of equilibrium between the
build-up and decay of c14 in the atmosphere indicates that a great cosmic
disaster occurred in 2345 bce. he thinks the great flood was then.
rock from a lava bed was dated up to
3 billion years old, when it was known to have formed 168 years ago.
ice cores of greenland are thought to
be 135,000 years old, assuming thin annual layers. yet war planes parked
on the ice in 1941 were found in 1990 to be under 268 ft of ice! it turns
out the rings are not summer-winter but warm-cold, and there can be 10 in a day,
yet our lads still call them annual. its now easier to see how green
became white in a mere 1000 years, since the vikings.
gray makes assumptions too, thinking
that salt traces in the lakes of the great basin are from glacial lakes, and not
considering they may have resulted from a tsunami. the same is true for
the great plains.
[i agree that a global disaster
happened, but think it dates closer to 2950 bce, and it was not the great
deluge, nations suffered, but were not destroyed. it was the smallest
of 4 disasters since 50,000 bce, as given by cayce. he didnt even mention
that of 2950 bce. ]
the great barrier reef is about 3,700
years old, suggesting the current sealevel of the pacific began about
then. i challenge the accuracy of that, fewer organisms at the start would
produce less coral, than the mass later. the rate of growth increases with
he asks why there is no evidence of
earlier generations of sequoias and bristlecone pines? good
question. a short-term flood would have left them standing,
and perhaps alive, but a huge tsunami would have knocked them down and swept
away the pieces.
in 1999 the potsdam institute
concluded that the sahara desert was about 4,000 years old.
astronomer dodwell's study of ancient
solstice sites shows that the axis was vertical before about 3350 bce, and
it suddenly shifted to a wobble of 26.5 degrees, and since then it has corrected
3 degrees. he concluded that something struck the earth about 2355
bce. [i think that the dates assigned to the monuments that he measured
the solstice shadow at are not accurately known, so the date of the collision
could have been just as easily 2950 bce, the date given by tradition for a
flood in the andes, and closer to the 3000 bce date when many of the cultures of
the world were disrupted, in egypt, india, mexico, and peru. the
calendar count restarted in many nations near then. the new long count
began in mexico 3114 bce, 1st dynasty in egypt, and the kali yuga of india 3104
bce. it is significant though. ]
oops, author says that only by
reading his books can we know the facts! he insists that no culture
survived the event of 2355 bce, and there was no great floods or global
disasters before that time. i just lost interest in this author!!
unless he has full access to the akashic records, he boasts, he is hardly on a
soul development with edgar cayce and blavatsky, who have said otherwise.
i can concur that there was possibly a cosmic collision circa 3000 bce, that
disrupted orbits, caused wobble of the earth's axis, great tsunamis, megafauna
kill-off, and a change in the hours of the day, and length of the year - but
will not admit that only he has all of the facts! he needs to reword
that. God may have granted understanding to a few others.
