This would, for the most part be wrong as while the Old Kingdom did end c.2195 BC, the Akkadian Empire ended with Shar-Kali-Sharri c.2100 BC; the (mature) Harappan (Indus Valley Civilization) ended c.1900 BC, well AFTER your 2200 BC date; and the Hongsan (presumably Hong(s)han culture had long ended c.2900 BC. The IVC as a whole lasted long after 1900 BC and DID NOT collapse, therefore, circa 2200 BC.
Somewhat is a huge understatement if there ever was one. Youve even taken the Burckle Crater, tentatively dated to c.2800 BC and moved it forward in time 600 years to make it fit the 2200 BC date. This doesnt prove the OLB isnt a hoax, either. Not only is there no bath water to throw out, you havent even presented evidence of a baby, not to mention a tub for both.
And yet, in all your research, you missed this basic mathematics.
You can stand by and believe whatever you wish, but that belief is wholly unevidenced in the archaeological or geological record.
It stands to reason, IMO, that if Steven Dutch's explanation is correct, then in order for an impactor or impactors to move the core separately from the mantle, it would take a comparable amount of energy to do it globally as it would have taken to change the earths axis. Again this would wipe out all life on the planet. There should also be widespread geological phenomena dating to only 4200 years ago. Why is there none?
1. Old Kingdom (Egypt) c 2200 BC (at least you agree on this one).
2. Akkadian Empire (Weiss, Courty and numerous others): c.2200 BC e.g.
Skeletal Evidence for health and disease at Bronze Age Tell Leilan, Syria by H.G. McKenzie
Lying within the Habur Plains of northem Syria, Tell Leilan was continuously occupied for
more than three millennia until its sudden abandonment around 2200 BC.
3. Harrapan Civilization: c.2200 BC
The Harappan Civilization and Myth of Aryan Invasion From The Hindustan Times By Dr. N.S. Rajaram
"Further, there is profuse archaeological evidence including the presence of sacrificial altars that go to show that the Harappans were part of the Vedic aryan fold. As a result, it can safely by said that the Vedic age also ended with the Harappan civilization."
"From all this it is clear that the loss of these sites must have been associated with some natural catastrophe."
"On the basis of extensive explorations carried out in Northern Mesopotamia, a joint French-American team led by H. Weiss of Yale University has determined that most of the old world civilization were severely affected by a prolonged drought that began about 2200 B.C. and persisted for about 300 years. The most drastically hit region seems to have been the Akkadian civilization neighbouring India. The drought may have been triggered by massive volcanic eruptions. According to the findings of this historic study concluded only recently:
"At approximately 2,200 B.C., occupations of Tell Leilan and Tell Brak (in Northern Mesopotamia) were suddenly abandoned...a marked increase in aridity and wind circulation, subsequent to a volcanic eruption, induced considerable degradation in land use conditions.... this abrupt climatic change caused abandonement of Tell Leilan, regional desertion, and collapse of the Akkadian empire based in southern Mesopotamia. Synchronous collapse in adjacent regions suggests the impact of abrupt climatic change was excessive."
"An end uncannily like that of the Harappans. The authors of this momentous study note that the collapse of the Akkdians more or less coincided with similar climate change, land degradation and collapse noted in the Aegean, Palestine, Egypt, and India. The date of 1900 BCE given by S.R. Rao for the collapse of the Harappans should be seen as approximate"
Now strangely we find the Oera Linda "Hoax" mentioning the same date - in the 19th century?
You keep on saying there is no archaelogical evidence. This is only because you are not aware of it. I could quote numerous sources but, I am afraid, nothing will get you out of your denial. If you are really interested, check it out yourself.
You do not have the foggiest idea about the Oera Linda Book yet you want to express an opinian about it. Not very professional, is it?
As for your last comment it clearly demonstrates that you do not have any idea about the physics of waves and wave energy. To help you a bit, herewith something from Wiki:
"In physics, resonance is the tendency of a system (usually a linear system) to oscillate with larger amplitude at some frequencies than at others. These are known as the system's resonant frequencies (or resonance frequencies). At these frequencies, even small periodic driving forces can produce large amplitude oscillations, because the system stores vibrational energy."
And no, you do not need anything near the size of impacts described by Steven Dutch.
