Last month, it was reported in the journal Science Advances that a 20-mile-wide asteroid impact crater had been discovered in northern Greenland, with the impact dated to be as recent as 12,000 years ago. This discovery would lend support to the 2006 “Clovis Comet” (aka Younger-Dryas Impact) hypothesis of Richard Firestone, which posited a massive airblast in the Great Lakes region that extinguished the Paleo-Indians living in North America at that time, along with numerous species of giant Ice Age animals.
This extremely consequential impact coincides with the beginning of our modern Holocene Epoch and the 6th Extinction, which continues to this day. I’ve always found it odd that as children, we’re taught more about the dinosaurs from tens and hundreds of millions of years ago than we are about the megafauna, which were hunted by humans until relatively recently.
As publisher and author Barbara Hand Clow says in her book, ‘Catastrophobia’, “We resist knowing about the recent cataclysm because humans experienced the nearly complete annihilation of life on Earth. Evidence of this catastrophe lies in the intact frozen bodies of oxen, bison, horses, sheep, tigers, lions, hairy mammoths, and wooly rhinoceroses found interred in the Sibero-Alaskan permafrost…”
Clow predicted a cataclysmic extraterrestrial impact at the end of the last Ice Age, describing the brutal results of this impact: “The Earth’s lithosphere was dislocated both vertically and horizontally and tectonic plates formed that caused the planet to become a polyhedron of twenty faces – an icosahedron…”
Clow believes the trauma from this event is still locked in our DNA, blocking our view of that era and preventing the spiritual/psychological/cultural integration of those events.
In the view of Jimmy from the Bright Insight YouTube channel, it has more to do with scientists protecting their turf and not wanting to grapple with the implications of a global civilization in deep antiquity. He does a great job discussing the rampant Group Think in science, that has caused Graham Hancock to be continually disrespected by organizations like TED. He gives ample evidence that the Ancient Egyptians who left us their beautiful temples and sculptures were not the people who built the pyramids at Giza, the latter pre-dating that civilization by thousands of years.
