In Revisiting Armageddon, Ray Covill explains the after-effects of what he calls the Gulf Event: the crashing of a massive asteroid into the earth 7,500 years ago. The impact of the Gulf Asteroid changed our planet’s history, geography, climate, and composition. Revisiting Armageddon is a fact-based account of what may have happened at the asteroid’s point of impact during and after the crash of the Gulf Asteroid, as well as what happened across the globe as the effects of the crash traveled like falling dominoes. You may be surprised to learn how much of our present-day lives and history have been shaped by this single, planetary-changing event.
The people on Earth today are no strangers to hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, and volcanoes, but we have never been exposed to the sort of disaster described here as the Gulf Event. When an asteroid of such magnitude crashes into the earth and sends a 3,000 mile-long wall of water charging eastward, there is no doubt that the consequences will be grave. However, Covill goes a step further and describes in detail, relying on research and his own personal theories, the devastation of such an incredible force of nature and the way in which it affected the landmasses in its path.
In the Americas, the landscape was forever changed due to the asteroid, and its positioning just off the Florida coast and beneath the peninsula itself. This may be the cause of several so-called mysteries in the “Bermuda Triangle.”
Across the Atlantic, Covill explains the inundation of several European countries and Africa, and how this abundance of fast-moving water molded the landscape into the form we know today. Covill addresses the mystery of the Great Sphinx and even retells the biblical story of Noah’s Ark in modern scientific language, giving more plausibility to a tale many may have believed to be a religious fable.
Based on factual events, research, and theory, Ray Covill gives a probable account of one of the most dramatic and Earth-changing events in recent—by Earth’s standards—history. His vast knowledge of geography, astronomy, and history are put into practice in this incredible account of the transformation of our planet. Covill’s practical conclusions help to make sense of real-life mysteries, science, and legends. The shapes and contours of Earth’s landmasses’ mysterious disappearances in the Atlantic, and the creation of the Great Sphinx are all explored and explained here in Revisiting Armageddon.
Ray Covill was born and raised in the Fairhaven/New Bedford area of Massachusetts. Birding and boating have been among his favorite pastimes over the years. His passion for birding continues to lead Ray and his wife on extensive travels throughout both North and Central America.
It was sometime during the 1960s or 1970s when Ray watched a television program that addressed the Bible’s claim that The Great Flood covered all of the earth. The program proposed that Earth suddenly split open and poured out sea water that covered the world—and then, it tightly closed itself up again. It later opened up once more, and the excess seawater went back underground. This not only seemed absurd, but quite impossible to him.
Ray finally concluded that the original text must have read that the flood covered all of the area in Noah’s world. Now, there was an answer he could really believe. This realization was the inspiration and the motivation for him to put pen to paper and write his debut work, Revisiting Armageddon.
