Consider the following sketch (in edition 2 of my book):
Here I show the present day sunrise and sunset as observed from Amsterdam.
At the summer solstice (June), the sun rises in a north-easterly direction and sets in a north-westerly direction. (Longest day and shortest night).
At the winter solstice (December), the sun rises in a south-easterly direction and sets in a south-westerly direction (shortest day and longest night).
The OLB, however, says that before the bad times came the sun rose over the Baltic Sea (N to NE?) and set over the Mediterranean (S to SW?). At a first glance this seems like an error.
The OLB, however, also says that before the bad times came, the sun rose higher and Europe was warmer (they could bake their grain in the suns rays). This could only be true if the earths orientation relative to the sun was different before the disaster which, according to the OLB, lasted 3 years.
I have previously quoted from the Book of Enoch which described how the earth was thrown of its pillar(s) and the earth became inclined. The book described earthquakes and a loud noise (impact?) that was heard from the extremities of the earth to the extremities of heaven.
Now we find the Potsdam-Institut fuer Klimafolgenforschung (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research) in Germany, headed by Prof. Dr. Martin Claussen saying that The change from the mid-Holocene climate to that of today was initiated by changes in the Earth's orbit and the tilt of Earth's axis.
Admittedly, they do not say that this change in the earths orbit and axial tilt happened suddenly. In fact, they are not certain whether this happened over thousands of years or over a few centuries. The OLB and the Book of Enoch, however, describe a very sudden event.
Consider the following 2 sketches. The first merely serves to illustrate a top which continue to spin around its axis even if it changes its orbit and inclination. In the second sketch I merely tried to show how this principle can be applied to earth.
I maintain that the OLB is correct. The anomaly in the OLB re the sun setting over the Mediterranean and the"sun rose higher" can only be explained by a change in earths orbit and/or axial tilt.
How could anyone in the 19th century have known that earths axial tilt and orbit changed during the mid- Holocene? To me this is overwhelming evidence that the OLB is not a 19th century fabrication. It is the smoking gun if you wish.
