The Green Sahara Era ends as the desert encroaches upon the Lower Nile. The first step pyramids are constructed in the style of Sumerian ziggurats.
Although modern-day academicians cannot agree on an exact day nor time-frame "The Big Bopper" has returned to the skies of planet Earth on an average span of every 75.32 years.Sometimes it is at a low end of 73 years while others check in at almost 79 years.It has, they say, been making this elongated orbit for at least over a thousand times now and is predicted to do so for another 300 plus orbits. That means that it will be hanging around the neighborhood for a million years.
And we are observing nowadays, the same sight that our distant ancestors did on those antediluvian nights so many campfires ago, although with a much less grandeur appearance. It last visited in 1986, as forecast. Ironically "it" wasn't named nor was its orbit figured out until 1705 when Edmund Halley (1656-1742) finally predicted that the comet seen in 1531, 1607, and 1682 would arrive again in 1758. He was correct, Sir... give that man a cigar!
Something that had only taken the academicians a little over 600,000 years to do.
Or was it already etched in stone?
And then ignored.
As the population increases and is condensed into smaller habitable areas, civilization is reborn at sites all over the known world and begins to flourish in Sumeria along the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Trade routes are reestablished with the tribes of Nubia and the Sumerians occupy the Lower Nile by the delta. Many of their customs are interchanged.
The Atlantic Sea Level is 350 feet Below Present Level. An astro/terra event (a collision with a comet?) in Greenland produces a tsunami that devastates the North Atlantic as far south as Barbados. Because of the sunlight being blocked out from the ash for several years the vegetation dies off in the Northern Hemisphere and many of the large animals go extinct.
I've passed this way before...
And each time my orbit has fluctuated from the period before and I have spewed my gasses and lost many tons of my matter.
I have come in contact with a host of my various neighbors as they have each altered my course.
I once lit up the day sky but I shall diminish with each orbit until my time is through... after a million of your years have gone by.
Glaciers were at maximum after a 120,000 year Ice Age. Because of all the water locked up as ice the sea levels are 400 feet below present.
The area has retained its own unique language, Euskera (a language isolate) that is vastly different from the neighboring “Romance Languages” although Basque can be found in Arabic, Greek, Aztec, Berber, and Japanese.
It is the last remaining descendant of the extinct pre-Indo-European languages and its words for “knife” (aizto) “axe” (aizhora) and “hoe” (aitzur) come from their word for “stone” (haitz) and suggests the time when the tools were made from stone.
Is this the Mother Tongue?
Now begins the Golden Age of Greece, their defeat of Troy, as well as the rise of Phoenicia in Lebanon that inherited the “Rulers of the Sea” title from Minoa. They would sail the Seven Seas between 1500-300 BC before their Colonia at Carthage is destroyed by the new power of Rome in 146 BC.
And If one were to follow the latitude of 29.85 N westerly across the Atlantic and back to the sea level of 10,000 BC, the sea shelf would be 200 feet above the ocean at the Cape of Good Hat Rack:
Now could someone explain these unnatural-looking eight ¾-mile-long x ¼ mile wide rectangles that stretch 20 miles across its submerged ancient shoreline that is 190 miles east of New Smyrna Beach, Florida at 29.85 N without saying “coincidence?”
The people of Gobekli Tepe would head to the cooler climate 300 miles southeast into Mesopotamia as Nabta Playa in Nubia would settle in and around the the Nile River Valley, 300 miles to their northeast.
Along the shores of a now long-extinct lake they pay attention to the fires that light up their cloistered world. High in the night sky a new star arrives and grows larger each evening.
The Ancients have foretold of such a star. The one that shakes the ground and send streams of fire and smoke throughout the land. It signals a time of drought and famine and we will have to move to find better pastures.
Just as our grandfathers had done, just as our grandchildren will.
We must built our stone circles to tell the children when it will appear next so they might store the food and shelter their animals.
And pray to Mother Earth that everyone will survive.
The Great Sphinx (originally had the head of a lion) is constructed at N29.58 N 31.08E in a West to East alignment, possibly as a boundary marker for the eastern terminus of an early civilization. Its age has been determined by the rainwater weathering on its body and confirmed by over 200 geologists.
The three main islands at 29.85 N latitude/-28 longitude (750 miles west of the Canary Islands and at the same latitude as the Sphinx) that stretched 150 miles north to south and was east of the epicenter sank beneath the waves almost immediately as does most of the exposed land in the area. The only remnants of the landmass are now the Azores.
The Sahara was a grass tundra with numerous lakes and rivers that was traversed across for thousands of years.
Oh me oh my oh
A shell of its former self...
Plato also wrote that the lands of Atlantis were beyond the pillars in the Atlantikos. The Aztecs of Mexica - who Plato never heard of - called the place where they originated from "Aztlan."
Nowadays experts say that the Student of Socrates and Teacher of Aristotle was “probably fabricating the tale as an allegory and a metaphor.”
Earth has been - and will continue to be so - bombarded with material from the beginning of the Solar System (about 4.2 billion years ago) as it sweeps through Space crisscrossing and overlapping orbits.
A space body the size of a house would flatten everything within 5 miles upon impact; one that is comparable in size to a tall office building would wipe out a 50 mile radius from its center; if a chunk a mile wide should hit downtown New York, New York... say adios to everything from Boston to Baltimore as it all would be leveled flat.
But we would survive.
Not so on that November Day 65 million years ago as a six-mile wide asteroid had all the right stuff when it hit near the area now known as the Yucatan Peninsular as it exploded and created a crater 20 miles deep, flinging out billions of tons of material in a plume 100-200 miles high. Not only did it send a firestorm through the oxygen-rich (some estimates say 35% compared to today's 21%) it also punched a hole in the atmosphere and deflated the pressure that ranged from 5-6 times atmospheres than nowadays' 14.7 pounds per square inch.
Pretty much like letting the air out of a balloon.
And that balloon's enclosed ecosystem was what kept the Earth's climate at a uniform warmth all over the world. It was similar to being inside a temperature-controlled bariatric chamber.
Which promotes gigantism.
But that was the least of everyone's problems as the sun was blotted out, most plants died off after a week without light, the food chain was stopped, and life that had not been burned to death began to starve and die after 30 days.
And the darkness would last for over two years... minimum.

SCROLL DOWN FOR GOODBYE CRETACEOUS
They left their rock art at their stopover places along the trade route to tell where and who they were.
The population was decimated by the tsunami and any survivors would head to and settle in a dry mountainous region inland away from the oceans. (?Baalbek, Illyria?) as the only thing they bring with them are their talents (?stone masonry?) and a knowledge of astronomy.
A very ancient history…
The resulting mega-tsunami at least 500 feet high leaves gravel and boulders 14 meters/42 feet up at Guincho Beach in present-day Lisbon, Portugal (originally 15 miles from ocean and 270 feet above sea level) The effects are felt throughout the North Atlantic as every shoreline is inundated hundreds of miles inland effectively destroying all traces of civilization.
The two Kingdoms of Egypt (Upper and Lower Nile) are united in the First Dynasty under King Menes and the Age of the Pharaohs begins. Menes would rule for 62 years.
The 26,000-year cycle of axial precession (the wobble/tilt of the earth’s axis which ranges from 22.1 – 24.5 degrees) begins to increase as another warming trend and glaciers melt and sea levels rise.
A 180-mile long section of the Storegga Ice shelf of Norway slides into the ocean causing another tsunami only this time heading west and south. It devastates the repopulated Orkney Islands with a 40 foot high wall of water and continues on to hit Doggerland which becomes marshland.
Ireland and England are now islands as the hot zone in Africa continues its march North and sends the population towards more fertile land.
The Volcano at Santorini, Greece explodes in one of the largest eruptions of the past 10,000 years. A giant Tsunami effectively ends the Minoan Civilization on the island of Crete, 120 miles south, who were Rulers of the Sea.
A volcanic explosion in Iceland brings an 18-year-long mini-ice age and northern European-wide drought and forces the “Sea People” to sail the Mediterranean in search of food. They plunder the inhabitants along the shoreline before they are finally defeated and conquered by Ramses III in 1154 BC.
The Mediterranean civilization grows with trade and in wealth and flourishes under the Great Egyptian Age as its borders are extended. Three-year round trips by large ocean-going vessels journey to the far points of the Earth.
The Green Sahara era begins opening up North Africa from coast to coast to Neolithic hunting and exploration. Rivers led from the Atlantic East to the major 3 freshwater lakes (now extinct) and to the Nile. Trade routes are established through the Sahara as “the land without borders” speak Afro-asiatic, the Mother Tongue of the Berbers, Cushtics, ancient Egyptians, and the Semetics, the ancestors of the ancient Arabians.
A Volcanic eruption or Isostatic/tectonic displacement results in the sea floor to drop 127 feet (recorded in Icelandic Ice Cores) “between the 29th and 30th parallel” and causes a major shift of the plates West.
The tsunami hits Doggerland (stone age Britain) with at a 500-foot plus wall of water and wipes out any trace of the inhabitants in the low-lying areas as well as on the Atlantic Islands as it eventually slams into the glacier covering Iceland.
The pyramids at Giza are supposedly constructed by Khufu of the fourth dynasty (2575-2465 BC) and his son Khafre (2558-2532 BC) who also repairs the Sphinx and replaces the Lion’s head with his own likeness. He built more statues of himself than any other Pharaoh. Both father and son were detested megalomaniac tyrants and within two hundred years its body is covered in sand leaving only the head without a nose exposed.
Removing the nose removes the "Ka" or soul from the statues,
The “Dream Stela” is dedicated by pharaoh Thutmose IV in front of the already multi millennium-old Sphinx in the first year of his reign in 1401 BC. It pictures the Sphinx sitting on top of a temple and experts translate the sometimes unreadable script that Thutmose IV attributed its construction to Khaf** from 1,000 years before. However In the various languages spoken in ancient Egypt (Hebrew, Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Omotic etc.) kaph, caph, khaf, has multiple meanings including “mountain,” “dark,” “cave,” and “corridor.”
THE ORIGINAL SURVIVORS?
Due to its location nestled in the “elbow pit” of the Iberian peninsular and its mountainous regions, the Basque area has been protected from a direct hit from numerous mega-tsunamis of the past 20,000 years. It was a place of refuge and has been inhabited for 50,000 plus years.
Greek philosopher Plato (427-347 BC) writes of a land being “beyond the Pillars of Hercules” that “sank in a night and a day into the ocean around 9,600 BC” stating an oral tradition handed down by his great-grandfather Critias of Athens. Plato named the Great Sea “Atlantikos” (sea of Atlas) for the Greek god Atlas who was punished by his father Zeus to “hold up the heavens for eternity” for revolting against him. Hercules rescued Atlas by constructing the Pillars of Hercules at Gibraltar to replace him.
Gobekli Tepe, 2,500 feet above sea level in present-day Turkey (excavated in 1994) shows an advanced knowledge of astronomy as its stone carvings tell of a comet that foretold the coming of a major catastrophe.
The Big Bopper
A whole lotta shakin' goin' on
(every 76 years or so)
A series of 300 foot deep tunnels and corridors carved in the bedrock are discovered - and yet unexplored - under the 12,000 plus year-old Sphinx that lead throughout the Giza Plateau and possibly under the Pyramids.
There have been many "Extinction Level Events" in the history of our planet. Most of them coming from contact with the numerous asteroids, comets, and meteors that we share Space with. The most notorious one being 65 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs and gave way to the rise of the much smaller mammals... about the size of a leetle mouse.
This was part of “the Fertile Crescent” where wild wheat and other grasses were cultivated.
The structures were occupied for over 3,000 years before the climate warmed up and the area eventually became too hot and arid. Nabta Playa in Africa would suffer the same fate.
A major ice water melt causes cooling in the northern hemisphere as winds bring warmer temperatures south. And yes, parts of Antarctica were warm and ice-free..
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
780 miles east from the Tri Mount of the Atlantic, in Northern Africa at 29.85 N is the western terminus of the Northern Sahara trade route (where most of the rock artwork is located) During the Green Sahara another route was from “the Gold Coast” (at the same latitude as the Olmec civilization in Mesoamerica) east along now-dried up rivers and the extinct 400-mile wide lakes.
