The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes: How a Stone-Age Comet Changed the Course of World Culture

“The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes tells a fascinating, remarkable, and scientifically convincing story that will change how we look at our world. The important conclusion that catastrophes like this could happen again at any time should inspire a united global effort to confront this serious danger to Earth.” (Prof. Anders Nilsson, Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, Stanford University, and the Department of Physics, Stockholm University, Sweden )“Reads like a mystery n (more…)

    Tiring but amazing!
    I’ll keep this simple. People who read books like this (alternative theories) want proof. They want research links, physical evidence, and the proverbial “smoking gun.

    This one will mess you mind
    I’ll make this short – everyone should read it!!!
    The slightly lengthier version is –
    The authors put a case for a cataclysmic planetary impact event of circa 13000 -…

    Interesting theory
    I agree with one other reviewer here who said “horrible cover but great book”…the cover and the title of the book are way over the top.

  4. 5.0 out of 5 stars
    Thought provoking
    As other reviewers have mentioned, the title of this book is not completely accurate as it doesn’t explore much in the way of cycles of catastrophe’s such as comet strikes and Im…

    an interesting corollary
    I have no problem with the main theory of this book, that a body, or bodies from space struck the earth and caused geologic havoc and mass extinction principally to the North…

    Well Researched & Supported
    I love it when scientists can prove what many of us have known for so long – that our civilization is MUCH older than anyone thinks or believes could be possible.

  10. 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Big Ideas under a Silly Cover
    I picked up the book because of the title, but almost didn’t get it because of the cover, which made it look like a knock-off from the Graham Hancock-Erich Von Daniken school…
