19-Mile Impact Crater Found In Greenland May Confirm Great Flood
A 19-mile wide impact crater was discovered half a mile beneath a Greenland ice sheet, offering scientists and archeologists proof that a mile-wide meteorite impacted the planet’s northern ice cap more than 12,000 years ago.
The discovery appears to support a contentious theory proposed by researchers, including Graham Hancock and Dr. Robert Schoch, who believe such a cataclysmic impact may have wiped out a lost civilization that predated the accepted timeline of mainstream archeology.
“You have to go back 40 million years to find a crater of the same size, so this is a rare, rare occurrence in Earth’s history,” Kurt Kjær, of the Natural History Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen, told The Guardian.
According to researchers involved in the study, the asteroid impacted an area known as the Hiawatha glacier, on the northwestern side of Greenland. Traveling at a speed of 12 miles per second, the iron space rock slammed into Earth with the force of about 47 million times the energy released by Little Boy, the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima during WWII. The meteorite ranks within the top 25 largest meteorites to ever have impacted Earth.
The force of the impact would have melted large amounts of ice, causing sea levels to rise, and debris to be catapulted high into the air. This dust and detritus would have resulted in a nuclear winter, leaving heavy particulate matter hanging in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, before settling and allowing sunlight to reach the planet’s surface again.
Early evidence of such an impact was found in 2015 when scientists noticed that ice samples taken from the glacier showed signs of an impact. Unsurprisingly, around this time temperatures dropped abnormally following the end of the last ice age, throwing Earth’s climate back into an even more severe ice age known as the Younger Dryas.
But before finding evidence of such a cataclysmic event, scientists were unsure of what could have caused the drastic swing in temperature.
“Archeologists tend to be uniformitarians, they don’t really like cataclysms very much,” Hancock said. “And they don’t, in my view, take enough account of the role of cataclysmic events in the story of human civilization.”
Years before this data became apparent, Hancock proposed a cataclysmic event much like this, believing it could explain anomalous evidence of an ancient civilization predating the Egyptians and Sumerians by thousands of years. The theory, known as the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis, supported the possibility that such an apocalyptic event could provide evidence for the existence of a lost civilization, such as Atlantis.
According to Hancock, the dust launched into the atmosphere from the asteroid’s impact likely lingered for as long as 1,600 years before temperatures began to rise. This led to massive amounts of melted ice as the cold subsided, which in turn caused sea levels to rise.
This period of around 11,600 years ago, corresponds almost exactly with the period Plato mentions as the era in which Atlantis was destroyed.
“Plato said Atlantis was destroyed by a giant flood and earthquakes 9,000 years before the time of Solon (an Athenian statesmen). Solon is 600 BC, so that’s 9,600 BC, which is 11,600 years ago – that is the end of the Younger Dryas. How could Plato have made that up?”

Russian Archeologists Find Elongated Skull with Perfect Teeth
Archeologists uncovered another skeleton with an elongated skull, much like the “Paracas skulls” found in Peru. In addition to the noticeably deformed cranium, the skeletal remains showed a female with unusually pristine teeth that remained preserved for somewhere between 1,700 and 2,000 years.
The remains were discovered at a 4,000-year-old settlement known as Arkaim, in Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast. The site is referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge, due to the remains of a monolithic structure that once stood there, which has become a mecca for pagans, psychics, astrologers, and clairvoyants.
The arrangement of the structure at Arkaim was believed to have been used for astronomy but in some instances, visitors have described strange magnetic anomalies, unexplained lights, and even hallucinations during visits.
Arkhaim and the Ural Mountains in general have also become a hotspot for UFO sightings, attracting throngs of seekers hoping to catch a glimpse of the unusual aerial phenomena.
In the past, the unearthing of elongated skulls tended to elicit speculation and headlines describing their discovery as evidence of aliens, but the practice of using wooden boards and wraps to intentionally stretch the skull of child is a well-documented practice. In fact, a parent could even shape the skull of an infant in such a fashion, simply by massaging it when the baby’s skull was soft and tensile.
But of course this hasn’t stopped tabloids from continuing to publish fantastic headlines calling newly unearthed elongated skulls “alien-like,” and the latest discovery is no exception.
Researchers believe this skeleton is unconnected to the original Arkaim civilization as radiocarbon dating placed it at a significantly earlier date. Instead, the ancient woman was believed to have belonged to the Sarmati tribe that inhabited the southern Urals.
Cranial deformation began while a child was still an infant, but no one is quite sure why ancient cultures conducted this practice. Some speculate that it was a way to achieve a more masculine look for males, but this wouldn’t explain the elongation of the recently discovered female skull. The most widely accepted answer is that it was believed to be an indicator of higher social status.
And elongated skulls or their depiction in ancient civilizations can be found all over the world, dating back to ancient Egyptian pharaohs, such as King Tut, Nefertiti, and Akhenaton. Meanwhile, similar skulls have been unearthed in a multitude of disparate areas across the world including England, France, Peru, and in parts of Africa.
Some proponents of the ancient astronaut theory believe the elongated skulls were an attempt to emulate the look of an ancient extraterrestrial race that visited our ancestors, but no one knows for certain. Still the practice becomes interesting especially when you throw Gaia’s 2017 discovery of several anomalous Peruvian skeletons with elongated skulls from Nazca into the mix.
