I often write about a periodic cycle of pole shift catastrophes that alter the entire surface of the Earth and reduce civilizations to ruins every 12-13,000 years (probably every half-precession cycle of about 12,900 years.) But many researchers, including Graham Hancock, suggest that this (last) catastrophe roughly 12,800 years ago was caused by a comet impact – not a pole shift. Does evidence favor one theory over the other? From a Russian article I found recently:
Researchers from the University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa) have evidence that the Earth was hit by a comet or asteroid almost 13,000 years ago.
“A global catastrophe led to climate change known as the Dryas Cooldown (10730-9700 BC) and also caused the extinction of many animal species. In 2019, South African researchers analyzed rock samples recovered from peat deposits in the Limpopo province of South Africa. As a result, they found a high concentration of platinum, which is also found in celestial bodies.
According to the researchers, this is another evidence in favor of the hypothesis of a large space object colliding with the Earth – a comet or an asteroid, which probably fell in Northern Greenland, where a crater 31 kilometers in diameter and 12,800 years old was discovered under the Hiawatha glacier. Climate change has been caused by the dispersion of dust and soot in the planet’s atmosphere. Platinum has also been found in rocks of the same age in Greenland, Eurasia, North America, Mexico, and Chile.”
I feel the following adequately sums up the asteroid theory: we found impact craters, and the surface of the entire world shows a layer of dust rich in platinum (and other elements far less common on Earth) covered our world roughly 10,800 B.C. Therefore, the resulting climate changes and mass extinctions were caused by the comet (or fragments) impact.
While there are many impact craters from approximately the first century of the Younger Dryas climate change events, there is massive evidence supporting another cause – the idea that our entire galaxy has a positive and negative side separated not by a flat sheet but by a rippling, wave-like undulation between positive and negative charge. This ripple or wave reaches us roughly every 12,900 years and causes stellar micronovas and planetary pole shifts.
Our sun’s magnetic field will eventually be overwhelmed and reversed by the galactic field changes, and our planetary magnetic field is overwhelmed with both the galactic wave (which takes centuries to make the full polarity reversal) and the solar micronova (which is over in hours and is the direct and immediate trigger of the pole shifts on Earth.) This is supported by many ancient myths, legends, and religions – such as Egyptian records of the sun rising in the west and setting in the east prior to the last catastrophe – or the Greek myth of Phaethon failing the handle Apollo’s sun-chariot and coming to close to Earth and scorching it before Zeus intervened by “tilting the table” to flood the burning lands and put out the fires and returning the reins to Apollo – or the description of an intensely brightened sun from Isaiah 30:26 “…the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days…”
As our terrestrial magnetic field weakens to zero and reverses, our protection from cosmic radiation and dust temporarily disappears. The flow of the extended and greatly strengthened solar magnetic field flows right through the Earth, north to south, and carries extra cosmic dust pushed in from the galactic wave and a much greater amount of solar particles blasted out with the micronova. This also explains the high levels of platinum and other elements on the surface of the Earth at the time of pole shift events.
Earth is rarely hit by comets or asteroids, partially because the ones that intersect Earth’s orbit usually hit within the first thousand years of the establishment of such intersecting orbits, followed by long periods of stability and virtually no impacts for many thousands of years (our recent history) because Earth has cleared the path of its orbit by impacting the problems earlier…. Until the next galactic wave and micronova blasts disturb the orbits of everything in the solar system, followed by centuries of newly dislodged objects pushed into new trajectories. This causes at least a few centuries of much more frequent impacts on Earth.
So yes, there are impact craters and high levels of rare elements approximately 12,800 years ago. But I think the evidence suggests that was a result of the galactic ripple, solar micronova, and pole shift which occurred around 12,850-12,900 years ago. If the evidence truly favors a periodic (recurring) cycle of pole shift catastrophes, and not a one-time random impact event for the Pleistocene extinction that happened almost 13,000 years ago – why does our government – which funds the scientific establishment that won’t bite the hand that funds it – not admit or acknowledge the recurring pole shift cycle? (Or any other cyclic theory, such as our sun having a distant binary companion such as Sirius – or even that the sun is in one of the filaments/threads of a galactic rope of Birkeland currents of charged plasma, making it look like we are rotating with another nearby star or two as our filament channels and spirals us around the larger “rope” of entwined filaments?)
Because a one-time impact won’t happen again. Governments often love to incite fear and make the public take the action they want and have planned for. But in this case, they want the public to remain ignorant and take no action beyond continuing to work and pay taxes right up to the end, so that the elite get build, supply, and retreat into their bunkers without millions or billions of informed and angry unselected useless eaters like us banging down their doors or detonating nukes or burying their exits under tons of concrete. To avoid that, they must not teach about recurring cycles of destruction, especially if another event is due within our lifetimes. Instead we are offered distractions and lies.
The next pole shift is due in the 2nd quarter of the 21st century. There are plans to survive it. But you and I are not invited. I can find no acknowledgement of pole shift cycles by the American government. But I did recently find declassified KGB files offering Soviet acknowledgement – and they comment on known American preparations and even the Nazi archives they found on the subject. (The Nazis also expected the next pole shift in the early 21st century.)
