was not only sudden and brutal, but occurred at the date stipulated by Plato, that of 11,600years ago. So, it seems the old philosopher was right after all, despite the fact that scientistsstill adamantly refuse to believe in the reality of the Flood cataclysm. The nature of thecataclysm which caused the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age — the Heinrich Events justmentioned — also seem to be the result of the events preconized by ourselves some 20 yearsago, that is, the result of giant maritime invasions caused by giant tsunamis, themselvescaused by explosive supervolcanic eruptions, as discussed in this text.Scientists have not yet realized the real cause of Heinrich Events, but I am sure they soonwill, when they realize the utter impossibility of the mechanism now held to have beenresponsible for them: the breaking open of giant lakes dammed by the glaciers themselves. Assome geologists of note have remarked, this damming is impossible for several good reasons,one of them the lack of mechanical resistance on their part. The reduction of glacier albedo by soot deposition has also been proposed as a possible cause, just as we predicted it would be. In other words, though no prophets, our predictions turned out to be quite accurate. Infact, they are obvious on hindsight, since they are so logical. And they are, though non-canonical, all strictly scientific, as I am a professional scientist myself, and quite used todoing science, conventional or not. In time, my theory will create a new paradigm for bothScience and Religion that seems to be on the coming for this new millennium of ours. It is a bit poignant, however, to be some sort of Cassandra, fated to be disbelieved by one and all,despite the correctness of my prophecies.
Domine, non sum dignus
This giant explosion is widely attested in all sorts of myths and traditions such as thoseconcerning Atlantis and Paradise, indeed located in this region of the world. It is universallyremembered as the explosion of the Mountain of Paradise (= Mt. Krakatoa, Atlas, Sinai, Zion,Alborj, Qaf, Golgotha, Meru, etc.) and of the deluge it caused, of which they all speak obsessively as the Universal Flood and the Universal Conflagration.The explosion of Mt. Krakatoa caused a giant tsunami, which ravaged the lowlands of Atlantis and Lemuria. It also triggered the end of the last Ice Age by covering the continentalglaciers with a layer of soot (fly ash) which precipitated their melting by increasing theabsorption of sunshine. The giant tsunami it caused also resulted in a maritime invasion of thecontinents surrounding the Pacific region and, above all, of the Antarctic region. The resultwas that the glaciers were floated by these invading waters and carried back to the ocean,when these waters returned to it. This process has recently been confirmed by geological andoceanographic research, and is called Heinrich Events. These are associated with thecataclysm end of the Pleistocene Ice age, and are sudden and brutal.The meltwaters of these glaciers — covered by soot or carried off as glaciers and banquises — flowed into the oceans, raising sea-level by about 100-150 meters. This huge rise in sealevel created tremendous strains and stresses in the crust of the earth due to the extra weighton the seafloor and the isostatic rebound of the continents, alleviated of the colossal weight of the mile-thick glaciers which formerly covered them. The crust then cracked open in theweak spots, engendering further volcanic eruptions, and further earthquakes and tsunamiswhich fedback (positively) the process, furthering it to completion. The result was thedramatic end of the Pleistocene Ice Age and the so-called Quaternary Extinctions which wementioned above.introductionAll nations, of all times, believed in the existence of a Primordial Paradise where Manoriginated and developed the fist civilization ever. This story, real and true, is told in the Bibleand in Hindu Holy Books such a the
and many others. That thisParadise lay "towards the Orient" no one doubts, excepting some die-hard scientists whostolidly hold that the different civilizations developed independently from each other even insuch unlikely, late places such as Europe, the Americas or the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
