Planet X: PRIOR Pole Shifts, 2 BACK

2 BACK, 7,200 Years Ago

Physical Evidence

 1. An international team of geologists and
    oceanographers reconstructed the history of a
    catastrophic flood from data gathered by a Russian
    research ship in 1993. Seismic soundings and
    sediment cores revealed traces of the sea's former
    shorelines, showing an abrupt 500 foot rise in water levels.
    Radiocarbon dating of the transition from fresh water to
    marine organisms in the cores put the time of the event
    at about 7,700 years ago.

 2. The first event probably occurred concomitantly with
    the rise of Holocene sea-level near modern levels around
    7000 BP. ... Recent work indicates that the southeast
    coast of Australia may not be the only coast to be
    affected by catastrophic tsunami. The geomorphic
    signatures of such events have been found on Lord
    Howe Island in the mid-Tasman Sea, along the north
    Queensland coast and along the northwest coast of
    Western Australia. At the latter location, there is good
    evidence that a recent wave swept more than 30 km
    inland, in the process topping 60 m high hills more
    than 2 km from the coast. Finally bedrock sculpturing
    features have been identified on the islands of Hawaii
    and along the east coast of Scotland. The latter
    location is within the zone affected by the tsunami
    generated by a large submarine landslide near
    Storegga, Norway also 7,000 years ago.

 3. When the European glaciers melted, about 7,000 years ago,
    the Mediterranean Sea overflowed into what was then a
    smaller freshwater lake to create the Black Sea. Last year
    Ballard found indications of an ancient coastline miles
    out from the current Black Sea coast. The new discovery
    provides evidence that people once lived in that now
    inundated region. Ballard, a National Geographic Society
    explorer in residence, said he studied shells found along
    the ancient coastline and found two types. One group is
    an extinct type of freshwater shell, while the second
    is from saltwater shellfish.
