The Great Flood?

May 10, 2807 BC - Noah and his sons finally had all the animals aboard and Noah knew that the bright light in the Southern sky was the hand of God about to descend on the idol worshipers and sinful people of Earth. All he could do was wait and pray the ship held together. Suddenly, the ground shook beneath the huge ship and it rocked on the beams propping it up as if the planet was wrenching in agony at some mysterious intrusion.

Gradually, over the course of the next few hours, the trembling slowed down with occasional tremors moving the giant ship around more and more. Slowly the sky began to darken as day turned into night. The animals stirred restlessly and outside large crowds of those God intended to destroy gathered and began pounding on the sides of the ship.

Then the rains came and lightning flashed across the sky in mighty rumbling sheets of righteous energy from the hand of God. Noah and his family huddled together and prayed while from the South a huge wall of water several hundred feet high approached at blinding speed, washing all before it. The cleansing had begun ....

Is that how it happened? Could be. There are many explanations for the Great Flood myths that may be found in almost every area and religion of the world. It is not hard to believe that something drastic happened in recent history that stuck in the human mind for thousands of years. Scientists have now uncovered evidence of a possible explanation for it all. It all revolves around an 18-mile-wide impact crater in the South Indian Ocean under 12,500 feet of water ....

At the southern end of Madagascar lie four enormous wedge-shaped sediment deposits, called chevrons, that are composed of material from the ocean floor. Each covers twice the area of Manhattan with sediment as deep as the Chrysler Building is high.

On close inspection, the chevron deposits contain deep ocean microfossils that are fused with a medley of metals typically formed by cosmic impacts. And all of them point in the same direction — toward the middle of the Indian Ocean where a newly discovered crater, 18 miles in diameter, lies 12,500 feet below the surface.

The explanation is obvious to some scientists. A large asteroid or comet, the kind that could kill a quarter of the world’s population, smashed into the Indian Ocean 4,800 years ago, producing a tsunami at least 600 feet high, about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Indonesia nearly two years ago. The wave carried the huge deposits of sediment to land.

Bruce Masse, an environmental archaeologist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico thinks he can say precisely when the comet fell: on the morning of May 10, 2807 B.C. Dr. Masse analyzed 175 flood myths from around the world, and tried to relate them to known and accurately dated natural events like solar eclipses and volcanic eruptions. Among other evidence, he said, 14 flood myths specifically mention a full solar eclipse, which could have been the one that occurred in May 2807 B.C.  Half the myths talk of a torrential downpour, Dr. Masse said. A third talk of a tsunami. Worldwide they describe hurricane force winds and darkness during the storm. All of these could come from a mega-tsunami.

This asteroid landed in the seabed (30.87 S / 61.36 E - See Map Below) and sent a 600-900 foot high wall of water - a megatsunami - around the Indian Ocean, impacting land as far away as Australia, and crashing onto the coast of Africa, up the Red Sea and Persian Gulf, and quite possibly into the Mediterranean Sea as well.

This asteroidal impact would have sent a huge surge of water into the mouth of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, flooding the ancient land of Sumeria, the source of the Biblical flood legend. Indeed, Sir Leonard Wooley, the archaeologist who discovered the city of Ur, found 30 feet of flood-deposited sand that separated the most ancient levels of the city from newer habitation levels on top of the flood debris.

Abbott’s findings of deep-sea meteor/asteroid strike craters (which she has developed the technology to discover) indicates that large-scale cosmic strikes hit the earth much more frequently than scientists have previously postulated - perhaps every 1 to 3 thousand years, instead of every hundred thousand or so.

Large asteroid strikes also produce weather alterations, and many more global phenomena. Interestingly, the period 2800BC is when the first dynasty of Egypt started.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
