Those who are alive today face a momentous choice, whether to succumb to the catastrophes that are coming, or whether to be a part of a new Golden Age that is.

The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes presents new scientific evidence of a series of prehistoric cataclysmic events that not only validates the legends and myths of our ancestors’ extinctions by fire, quake, and flood, but shows how these events suggest that we are entering a thousand-year cycle of increasing danger and possibly a new cycle of natural disasters.

Catastrophes. Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Tornadoes, and Other Earth-Shattering Disasters By Donald R. Prothero Catastrophes!" is a first-rate look at natural disasters from a more paleontological approach/5. The earth's history of catastrophes has both moulded the planet and determined evolution.

For each disaster led to another leap forward on. The planets of our solar system have experienced epic catastrophes throughout their long history, both raining down from outside and bubbling up from within. The opening chapters of Genesis have only an abbreviated description of the earth’s early history (only six chapters describing more than 1, years).
