Ancient Solar Storm Backs Theory of Lost Civilization’s Cataclysm
Scientists studying ice core samples in Greenland found evidence of a massive solar storm stronger than any recorded in modern history, including the devastating coronal mass ejection (CME) of 1859 known as the Carrington Event.
The discovery implies that these types of severe solar events occur more frequently than previously believed and may support Dr. Robert Schoch’s theory of a solar-induced extinction event that wiped out several advanced, ancient civilizations.
Researchers have made some fascinating breakthroughs studying Greenland’s ice sheet lately, including the discovery of two massive, 12,000-year-old asteroid impact craters, which researchers like Graham Hancock point to as the catalyst for the Younger Dryas period – an anachronistic ice age caused by dust and sediment thrown into the atmosphere, which blocked out the sun.
Schoch says he believes the Younger Dryas suddenly ended when a massive solar storm, such as a CME, scorched the planet and led to the rapid melting of ice, causing global flooding and an inhospitable climate– what Schoch has dubbed a Solar-Induced Dark Age, or SIDA. The intense heat and plasma outbursts from the sun caused further extinction of civilizations that survived the ice age, while forcing remaining survivors to retreat below ground.
Schoch says one sees evidence of this in some of the oldest ruins on Earth, including the megalithic statues at Göbekli Tepe and Easter Island, which were not only buried below ground, but also show carvings that Schoch says he believes depict the solar phenomena these ancient people witnessed in the atmosphere.
Underground caves and shelters in the Cappadocia region of Anatolia, Turkey is further evidence for Schoch’s theory, which he says may be the key to our discovery of evidence for famously elusive, antediluvian civilizations such as Atlantis. According to Schoch, low-lying, thick stoned shelters with narrow entries, much like fall-out shelters or bunkers, have been found in these areas further supporting the idea that these people attempted to protect themselves from some aerial catastrophe.
This latest study appears to lend credence to Schoch’s theory, as radioactive atoms beryillium-10, chlorine-36, and carbon-14 caused by extensive radiation from solar protons were discovered in ice core samples, suggesting these types of solar storms happened way more often than once thought, and with much greater intensity.
Both Schoch’s and Hancock’s theories have been labeled “heretical” and “pseudoscientific,” but with more corroborating evidence such as this, their cases continue to strengthen. Meanwhile, the stalwarts of archeology continue to disregard mounting evidence that traditional narratives we’ve long been fed seem to be flawed.
And with this growing body of evidence showing human history may have a significantly older timeline, it’s hard to ignore Hancock’s assertion that when it comes to our own history, we may be “a species with amnesia.”

The Zone of Silence: An Ancient Mystery of Old Mexico
Because of Mexican engineer and chemist Harry De La Peña’s blond hair and blue eyes, since high school he had been called “El Luminaro,” the Luminous One. After a European education, De La Peña returned to Mexico to teach chemistry at the Instituto Tecnológico de Laguna in Torreon, Mexico. On a blistering day in 1966, he departed Torreon for a photo expedition with a group of friends.
On that day, El Luminaro would stumble into a zone of anomalous paradox. While native mestizos, the ethnically mixed descendants of Anglo and indigenous people, had long known the the area had strange and special qualities, it was now on the radar of a European-trained scientist. The locals believed that couples having trouble conceiving children could visit the Zone with a baby coming nine months later. Notably, Zone locals also had superior dental health with straight white teeth, and random blood samples from Zone residents show far greater health than those from outside the area.
Like the Bermuda Triangle, the Zone of Silence is located on the 27th parallel. Comprised of 1,500 square miles of inhospitable desert and extreme temperatures, there are no roads; only dirt tracks. And travel mishaps are dangerous as it’s difficult to call for help. El Zona del Silencio is an electromagnetic void; an anomaly, where compasses spin like dervishes and cell phone and radio signals are the definition of “hit-and-miss.” Even so, some view these odd reports as “deliberately invented to generate tourism and sold to the world via the mass media.”
Entering El Zona del Silencio
Ceballos, in the Mexican State of Durango, is the point of departure closest to the zone. In 1966 the town, comprised of dirt roads and shacks, was barely on the map. More than 50-years since, the roads are still some combination of dirt, dust and mud, but signs point the way to El Zona del Silencio, and a 16 kilometer rail spur provides access from the outside.
The wise enter the zone with as much ice and water as a vehicle can carry as well as extra gas. Only a fool would forget a hat. During monsoon season the ground becomes a slippery paste, and dry arroyos fill with torrential flood waters in an instant. Daytime temperatures can hit 120F and plummet to freezing after the sun drops below the horizon.
Nopal cactus grow in abundance — on the zone outskirts they have the typical green coloring, but change to pink and purple as one travels deeper into the region. What’s even weirder is that the purple and pink specimens are interspersed with green cactus plants.
Another rare species, the tailless Mapimí tortoise, is native to the area. Foot-long centipedes with purple heads and tails hunt anything they can catch, including mice and birds. Insects grow two to three times normal size, and albino reptiles and snakes are frequently sighted. Today much of the zone is within the boundaries of the Mapimí Biosphere Reserve — the inexplicable flora and fauna are subject to ongoing research.
