Researcher Graham Hancock published Magicians of the Gods , where he presents evidence of how a massive celestial object completely wiped out a human civilization much older than known settlements.
Hancock bases his theory on the correlation between cultural and geological events between different sites as far apart as Indonesia, Turkey, Egypt, and India . These indicate that a human civilization lived much earlier than science claims.
An unknown human civilization
The researcher has collaborated in different explorations, visiting locations as mysterious as the sacred site of Gunung Padang , in Indonesia. There he found remains of columnar basalt that, according to him, belonged to a pyramid dating from the year 22,000 before our era… or even before.
The pyramids we have on Earth are the tip of the iceberg of a huge pyramid. This was how a civilization managed to survive the era of the Younger Dryas , around the year 10,900 of our era.
A time when the Earth was living the last days of the ice age and the temperature was favorable to mammals. But where an event that has yet to be determined caused the planet to plunge abruptly back into freezing cold.
For Hancock, this sudden reemergence of cold was due to a comet impacting the polar caps , unleashing colossal tides and blanketing the atmosphere in dust for more than 1,000 years.
Another huge settlement is Göbekli Tepe , in Turkey. According to experts, this immense structure is more than 9,600 years old and is the greatest proof of the effects of a devastating scenario.
According to Hancock, the area served for the survivors of the cataclysm to preserve at least some knowledge of the civilization that was annihilated with the intention of transmitting it to new generations.
Traces of an ancient society
The researchers say it is no coincidence that the first traces of the re-emergence of civilization, in the form of the oldest known megalithic architecture , as well as agricultural knowledge, occurred at Göbekli Tepe, 11,000 years ago.
This date coincides perfectly with the Younger Dryas and the return of a more pleasant global environment.
The book also presents evidence that comet fragments also reached ancient Egypt .
There, an ancient cult in Heliopolis developed a way to preserve historical knowledge for the benefit of new generations in the form of astronomical charts and monumental architecture.
This theory would add a new connection to a civilization so ancient and unknown that it would completely rewrite history. This leads us to think that there is a period of time on Earth that was completely eliminated .
