Well, you and I are still here after Friday December 21. The world did not end. Yes, it is true that the highly publicised Mayan calendar did end – and now it has begun again on December 22. That’s all! At such a time, the question on the lips of some is this: Has any enormous world-wide cataclysm ever occurred in the past, in historical times – that has affected the human race?
The answer is a definite YES. There was one single event that has gone down in history, in which the medium involved was WATER. I thought you might like to see a flash-back to it, quickly – with some of the evidence it left behind.
The event had been foretold. But, predictably, there was heaps of skepticism. However, at the precise date indicated, the disaster struck. As people were going about their normal affairs, suddenly the earth shook – violently. Those living near the coastlines looked – and saw a huge tsunami racing toward them.
It surged into the streets of the coastal cities… But that was merely the curtain-raiser. The news soon spread inland of the disaster along the coasts. More huge tsunamis followed.
But they did not stop there. Soon the water was pushing inland. It came in further and further, but didn’t go back. It kept rising… and rising… and rising. Then, as it continued advancing, the panic intensified. Just imagine you were there… let your mind loose on this!… For the evidence shows this is exactly what happened…
A DESPERATE DASH TO SAFETY
There now began a terror-stricken dash by man and animal alike to reach safety – only for them to be sucked under by the relentless force of advancing waters. The agonised cries of drowning men and beasts pierced the air.
CATTLE FLEEING AUSTRALIAN FLOODING
Gripped by the same terror, wild beasts and tame struggle together to higher grounds. Some of the people bind their children and themselves upon powerful animals, knowing that these will climb to the highest peaks to escape the rising waters. Some fasten themselves to tall trees on the hills or mountains, but the trees are uprooted and hurled into the billows.
As the waters rise higher, the people flee for refuge to the loftiest heights. In amphitheaters in the hills, they find themselves trapped. In great numbers they throng together, pushing into caves, swarming over the ground in front. Until the waters rise and cover them. Strong animals, without a sign of degeneration, come to an end.
Yes, worldwide, the traditions of the human race recount this terrifying disaster. And geological evidence supports their account. They recall that it was accompanied by enormous universal rains, violent waterspouts, earthquakes and hurricane winds.
THE FIT DO NOT SURVIVE
This is NOT the survival of the fittest. Fit and unfit, and mostly fit, old and young with sharp teeth, with strong muscles, with fleet legs, with plenty of food around, all perish. The earth is even at this moment convulsing, opening up fissures to swallow many of them, as they collect on the tops of these hills.
Then the huge waves smash over them large rocks and debris, until their bones are crushed and smashed. Here, often thousands of feet up, they are washed into crevices and held tight.
WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN’T TELL YOU
There is a most crucial circumstance concerning the earth’s strata and the fossils that is not generally disclosed to the public, and which many geologists apparently do not recognise. On every continent, and in numerous places on each, are vast “fossil graveyards”, where masses of flora and fauna have been swept to a sudden death in their millions.
These areas are often packed with both land and sea creatures from different habitats and even different climatic zones – all mixed and buried together in a completely unnatural way. There is evidence that a great disaster took place, in which creatures of all types perished together – mostly fit, young and old, with fleet legs, strong muscles and sharp teeth.
And with plenty of food around. Artefacts of man are found among them. They all died together, suddenly and violently, high up on hills and mountains.
WHAT DID IT?
Come with me on a global tour. You’ll see what I mean. Let’s start with Europe.
In France, numerous clefts crammed to overflowing with animal bones have been found. Along with them are human remains. One could mention Mount Genay, near Semur in Burgundy – 1,430 feet high. Here, capped by a breccia (a cemented mass of stone fragments), is a fissure filled with mixed bones of numerous animals.
Near Chalon-sur-Saone, between Dijon and Lyons, stands an isolated hill, flat-topped Mont de Santenay. It rises 1,030 feet above the plain. Near the summit is a fissure crammed with bones. The bones are unweathered and un-gnawed.
I ask you, Why should so many wolves, bears, horses and oxen have ascended a hill isolated on all sides? These broken and splintered bones are evidently not those of animals devoured by beasts of prey; nor have they been broken by man. The state of preservation of the bones indicates that the animals perished in the same period of time. It appears that all these animals had fled there to escape rising waters.
Caves and fissures on the Cote d’Azur have yielded mixed land and sea remains – bones of lions, rhinoceros, hyenas, macao monkeys, elephants and whales. All together. In Britain (for example, Yorkshire, Plymouth, Devonshire and Wales) and Eire, are similar mixtures.
What could have brought, together in quick succession, all these animals and plants, from the tundra of the Arctic Circle and from the jungle of the tropics… from lands of many latitudes and altitudes, from freshwater lakes and rivers, and from the salt seas of the north and south? There is evidence of submersion to a depth of not less than about 1,000 feet.
In Germany, coal beds contain a complete mixture of plants, insects and animals from all climatic zones. Their muscles and skin are perfectly preserved. Although leaves are preserved in fresh condition (retaining their fine fiber and green colour) and insects their membranes and colours perfectly preserved, ALL ARE VIOLENTLY TORN INTO PIECES. Were they carried there by onrushing water – from all parts of the world???
Numerous crevices down to 290 feet deep on the Rock of Gibraltar are filled with bones of the wolf, bear, lynx, hare, ibex, rabbit, horse, panther, rhinoceros, ox, wild boar, deer and other animals. The bones are neither worn, rolled, nor gnawed. They are splintered and broken. And found together with land and marine shells – as well as coral.
Tell me, what but a great and common danger, such as a colossal disaster by water, could have driven together the animals of the plains and of the crags and caves?
A handful of bone samples still in the Natural History Museum in London confirm their “freshness”, indicating that they had been entombed with the flesh still on them – and not eaten by predators. These show a consistently unrolled and fresh appearance. Flood, not glacial action, is indicated.
We could cite similar evidence from Sicily – where bones of hippopotamus, deer, ox and elephant were mixed together in wild confusion, again without sign of weathering or gnawing. The fact that bones of animals of all ages were piled together, indicates that the catastrophe was SUDDEN.
On the island of Malta are caves crammed full of hares, lemurs, tigers, rhinoceros, elephants – and birds. Giant swans (twice as large as any swans now on earth) and huge sea birds are crammed in with the animals. Now Malta is an island 170 miles (270 km) from the nearest other land (Sicily). And please note, these birds are sea birds.
Had this been a mere local flood, these giant swans would have taken off for Sicily and been there in half an hour. These sea birds would never have been drowned – they’re sea birds! So what happened? You’ve guessed it! These birds kept flying until they could fly no more!!!
The same mixture of LAND animals and SEA shells is found in caves and fissures from Western Europe to Russia – and in Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon and elsewhere. The bones are broken into innumerable fragments. They are still “fresh”. Artefacts of man are found among them. Fissures are in rocks on top of isolated hills. Often, birds and animals are MIXED TOGETHER WITH trees and vegetation.
QUESTION: “COULD THEY HAVE FALLEN IN ALIVE, OR BEEN BURIED THERE?”
The answer is no, for there are no complete skeletons.
QUESTION: “COULD THEY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT THERE BY STREAMS?”
Again, no, for there are no signs of them having been rolled.
QUESTION: “COULD THEY HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED BY RUTHLESS MEN?”
No, there could have been no way to bury them in such numbers before other animals gnawed them or the weather affected them. Considering the number of the remains found, thrown together in great heaps, mixed in great confusion, large and small animals, grass-eating and flesh-eating animals and birds, all in one pile, buried in alluvial deposits, intermingled with remains of plants and trees, seashells and fish, such an idea becomes absurd.
QUESTION: “DID SOME DISEASE STRIKE THEM DOWN?”
All animals at the same time and in every part of the world? Land animals and deep sea creatures, all mixed together? Of course not. Certainly animals stricken by sudden disease would be too weak to ascend to the hilltops! The bones could not have been exposed to weather for long, for none of them shows marks of weathering.
That water deposited them is indicated by the very general cementing together of the bones by calcite. Moreover, these bone-filled chasms are usually found on isolated hills of considerable height – places on which we might expect animals to gather in seeking safety from an approaching flood.
This scene is enacted on hundreds of thousands of hills in every part of the earth. While panicked men, women and animals were rushing to the highest points in Europe, the very same scene was being enacted ALL OVER THE WORLD. From North America (California, Maryland, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Canada, for example), the story is the same.
Human remains are mixed chaotically with those of land and sea animals – just as in South America, Australia, Africa, Siberia, India, China, Korea, Burma. In fact, all over Asia.
WHAT COULD DO THIS, BUT WATER?
Clearly, nothing but a colossal flood of worldwide magnitude would have driven such strange mixtures of animals – animals that don’t normally live together – into caves and crevices in all parts of the world. And buried them together.
The evidence everywhere strongly indicates that they were drowned en masse by violent water action. This bone-cave phenomenon is of world-wide extent. Was this a global Flood? Of course it was.
Here is a fact of utmost importance: Creatures of every kind died in great numbers and were buried almost instantly. Each of these animals, by the unbelievable uniformitarian (evolutionary) explanation, fell into their graveyards by accident – one at a time!
However, the facts reveal not normal, slow processes, but unusual transportation and rapid burial mechanisms.
DINOSAURS LIKEWISE DROWNED
Yes, big as they were, dinosaurs suffered the same watery fate – followed by rapid burial. This is evidence that some scientists prefer to ignore. Great dinosaur beds have been excavated in Alberta, Belgium, New Mexico, Tanzania, Spitsbergen and many other places. All over the world, paleontologists have found caches of fossilized dinosaurs that were buried instantly in a catastrophic movement of water.
WHAT MECHANISM DID IT?
You may be asking at this point, what kind of mechanism could have triggered such an “unlikely” event – such a worldwide catastrophe – which wiped out so much of the human race that it has left an indelible impression on human history – both written and oral?
