Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Rand Flem-Ath
"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."

Studying geology, natural Earth History and philosophy of science left me with some nagging doubts. This book gives answers that show the controversy in these fields that my Proffesors wouldn't. Weither you agree or disagree, you should at least see the evedience and decide for yourself.

I believe this book provides compelling, intensively-researched and referenced, evidence of a scientific explanation for the way Earth is at present, which also gives reasonable agreement with Biblical accounts. At least, it is a very interesting and intriguing dissertation, deserving thoughtful consideration.

This is in many respects a highly scholarly work. As long as the authors stick to factual evidence, they are right on. Their interpretation of scripture and ancient historical records however is in many ways mistaken. Nonetheless, they provide compelling evidence of a catastrophic past. If read with discernment, this book could certainly be benificial.
