The world in upheaval 3000 B.C.E

5 posts in this topic

Leonard Farra: As I mentioned, in previous articles, extraordinary things were happening on our planet 5,000 years ago . There was a major climate change, and flooding, and this was followed by the rise of advanced civilisations. However, there is another fascinating side to this story and its been a major influence on many aspects of human life ever since. The Quelccaya Ice Cap, in the high Andes Mountains in Peru, is the largest glaciated region in the tropics and Lonnie Thompson, Professor of geological sciences at Ohio State, who conducted scientific research there, made the discovery that something had abruptly happened, around 5,200 years ago, and that it influenced climate over a large area.

The Masoretic text of Genesis would place Noah's flood at around 2350-2450 BC. However, the Septuagint version found in the New Jerusalem Bible would place it 600 years earlier. This is another reason I prefer the more realistic Septuagint for dating purposes.

An interesting piece--until the great flood, ancient aliens and alternate historians crept into it.

I agree, and quoting Thor Herdahl as a source is not very enlightening. His theories have been discredited by mainstream scientists.

I would like to see more authoratative sources on what, on first reading, is an interesting post.

It was an interesting piece until I started looking at the citations, which referenced different dates than 3000 BCE negating their usefulness to support the article...
