Clearly, this was Bush's fault.

And haliburton, too.

Tree rings show that vegetation growth slowed down in around 207BC, possibly because of the “nuclear winter” effect of dust blotting out the sun.

So did this happen after Tunguska, as well?

Kerry will find a way to make this Bushs' fault.

This may be of intrest to you. It calculates the effects of impacts of meteorites.

That's interesting. Never heard of that. Sounds plausible.

If it's not global warming, it's nuclear winter. We're doomed.

"may have witnessed"

Conversely, they may not have. :~)

BAN COMETS NOW!!! SAY "NO" TO NUCLEAR WINTER!!

Ok, somebody fill me in on how we can get tree ring data from 207BC.

Not only would trees and homes have been flattened for many miles by the blast, but the local climate would have changed for years afterwards.

What should this be chalked up to????
Ignorance of journalists???

Professor Mike Baillie's world wide tree-ring data indicates that there were catastrophic events in 1628BC, 1159BC, 207BC, 44BC,and 540AD...these events were large enough to affect the trees world wide. Baillie has an excellent book, Exodus To Arthur that details these events. He thinks the impact of a comet fragment in 540AD caused the Dark Ages.

Because of these events, the Senate in 205BC ordered that a conical meteorite known as the Needle of Cybele, which had been worshipped in Asia Minor, be brought to Rome.

I strongly doubt it. A team of Romans was sent to Asia Minor to bring back the stone of Cybele in order to protect the City of Rome during the Second Punic War. Hannibal was a much more immediate threat to Rome than meteors in Bavaria.

Cybele is the Magna Mater, portrayed with a crown of a hundred cities and representing the rise and fall of empires. Virgil mentions her briefly twice in the Aeneid, I believe as the divine power behind the thrown who was responsible for the fall of the ancient empire of Troy and the rise of Rome with its supposed Trojan ancestors. Carthage, of course, was Rome's great rival for imperial rule.

The stone of Cybele, probably a meteorite, was said to have protected the City of Troy until it was removed by the Greeks. As long as it remained in the city it was prophesied that the city would stand. So, no wonder if the Romans wanted to move it to Rome.

Thanks blam and Freedom44. Here's a (literal) blast from the past, probably has a full thread somewhere on FR:
Space impact 'saved Christianity'
by Dr David Whitehouse
Monday, 23 June, 2003
It was just before a decisive battle for control of Rome and the empire that Constantine saw a blazing light cross the sky and attributed his subsequent victory to divine help from a Christian God. Constantine went on to consolidate his grip on power and ordered that persecution of Christians cease and their religion receive official status... Jens Ormo, a Swedish geologist, and colleagues working in Italy believe Constantine witnessed a meteoroid impact. The research team believes it has identified what remains of the impactor's crater. It is the small, circular Cratere del Sirente in central Italy. It is clearly an impact crater, Ormo says, because its shape fits and it is also surrounded by numerous smaller, secondary craters, gouged out by ejected debris, as expected from impact models. Radiocarbon dating puts the crater's formation at about the right time to have been witnessed by Constantine and there are magnetic anomalies detected around the secondary craters - possibly due to magnetic fragments from the meteorite.
