ASTRONOMY / GEOLOGY CATACLYSM! Cataclysm! presents a breakthrough
of enormous proportions--a new understanding of cosmic events in
Earth's recent geological past. Follow this multi-disciplinary,
scientific study as it examines the evidence of a great global
catastrophe that occurred only 11,500 years ago. Crustal shifting,
the tilting of Earth's axis, mass extinctions, upthrusted mountain
ranges, rising and shrinking land masses, and gigantic volcanic
eruptions and earthquakes--all indicate that a fateful
confrontation with a destructive cosmic visitor must have occurred.
The abundant geological, biological, and climatological evidence
from this dire event calls into question many geological theories
and will awaken our memories to our true--and not-so-distant--past.
"In not only the scholarship of paleontology but the paleontology
of scholarship, this is the sort of book which someday we will
realize to be--like the record of a great extinction--the marker at
the end of one era and the threshold of another. It is monumental
work, which no enlightened library of the coming paradigm shift
will be without." --Douglas Kenyon, Atlantis Rising magazine "Allan
and Delair do a brilliant job in revealing that researchers have
barely touched the tip of the iceberg of events that shook the
Earth around 9,577 B.C. . . . This book is an essential handbook to
our ancient past: a brave multi-disciplinary approach that should
be applauded." --Rand Flem-Ath, coauthor, When the Sky Fell D.S.
