I've speculated that there was an even earlier 'breach' of the Mediterranean at Gilbralter and perhaps a similar breaching of the Gulf Of Mexico.
Similar article...same title:
The Black Sea breach has been proposed as having caused the biblical flood for some time. This is the first time I’ve seen heard of a connection to the Canadian event. That is also familiar, but I think the connection is new.
“Then the LORD said to Al Gore, Get thee into thy back yard and build thee an ark out of your father’s toxic waste dump, for the global warming from Sodom and Gommorah and San Francisco are ever increasing my wrath!”
What’s the consensus on the Lake Agassiz event? I was recently reading something relating it to the Carolina Bays event 12900? years ago.
May be the first connection I've seen too. Albeit, RightWhale may have spoken of a connection in the past.
So fire, ice, earthquake, or kinetic kill.
However, the British Isles got majorly-separated from Europe about that time.
God owes a lot of money to Gore’s carbon credit company.
When I was much younger some people I used to know then used to smoke some kind of tobacco and then come out with these kinds of revelations.
When Lake Agassiz broke out it flooded all the way down the Mississippi and carried all of Canada's topsoil down to Illinois and even Oklahoma. The weight was also unsettling to the region and perhaps contributed to the new Madrid series of earthquakes, but at least the soil was still loose enough to be greatly disturbed during the earthquakes. Later the Dust Bowl moved much of that topsoil again, which surprised some people but shouldn't have since it was recently deposited and wasn't that well rooted.
Yup. My grandmother Mrs Smith's people (Dad's Mom) in Scotland and Finland, haplogroup U5a1a, were seperated by this event. Previously they could walk across (What is now the North Sea) for a visit.
BTW, Cheddar Man was/is haplogroup U5a too.
But I thought the world was only 4000 years old???
I think making a causal connection is a real stretch. The world was getting warmer, growing seasons were longer, glaciers were retreating. Sounds as though it was a good time to start agriculture.
There can be no exact timing on events that far in the past.
And if the Black Sea Flooded as a result, wouldn't the final effect on sea level be just about all even?
Ignore dendrochronology. They have a continuous calendar going back that far. When they finally pull up a post from a building down in the oxygen-free depths of the Black Sea they will be able to date it to the year the tree was cut.
I looked up Chris Turney on Amazon and ordered his most recent book. I’ll let you know later if it’s a good buy.
