Global Catastrophes, Dark Ages, Impact Cratering on Earth
Approximately 5,200 (3,200 BC) years ago cosmic chaos began when a giant interloper entered our solar system and smashed into the largest planet, Jupiter. Such was the force exerted upon Jupiter (enough to blast the Earth into smithereens many times over) it caused an apocalyptic explosion which resulted in the birth of Venus as well as unimaginable quantities of space debris (including our Moon). The impact was of such high velocity that it caused a SOLAR-SYSTYEM-WIDE catastrophe and a 200-300 year Dark Age on Earth.
With the first two links we have corroboratory evidence linking the genesis of chaos with geological evidence here on Earth. I will tie in further dates, such as the global DA of 1,200 BC caused by Venus as it crossed the obit of Earth to begin its journey to its current location (second rock from the sun) at a later date.
Something happened 5,200 (3,200 BC) years ago
The sudden beginning, did something happen in 3,114 BC (5,200 years ago)? Why did the first great civilisations collapse suddenly and at the same time around 2200 BC?.
There are several other very interesting links from this page.
