New Evidence Ties Younger Dryas Impact With Gobekli Tepe

Evidence Younger Dryas Impact

What could have triggered a sudden ice age 13,000 years ago, causing massive global destruction and dramatic cultural change? A new survey of decades of compelling scientific evidence strongly indicates that it came from the sky and gave rise to the very origins of civilization.

The Younger Dryas is the name given to a geological period that took place between 12,800 and 11,500 years ago. Marked by a suddenly occurring mini-ice age, this time was one of environmental catastrophe, worldwide animal extinctions, and major changes in human culture and population. While researchers have, for decades, been debating various explanations for these cataclysmic events, one controversial hypothesis now appears to be supported by evidence.

Dr. Martin Sweatman is a scientist at the University of Edinburgh who recently completed a thorough survey of this Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis.

“There is now this impact hypothesis, which was developed and first stated in 2007, and it suggested that this geological period—this mini-ice age that lasted for 1,300 years—was triggered by a cosmic impact with fragments of a comet,” he said.

“And so since then, since 2007, there’s been a lot of research published, some for and some against this idea.”

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu Wants to Clone Scythian Army

Russia clone ancient scythian army

The Russian military is reportedly looking to clone ancient warriors. Is it possible, and if so, why would they do it?

In the Siberian Republic of Tuva lie the remains of Scythian warriors and their horses buried for nearly 3,000 years. Now, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu apparently wants to put them back into action.

According to Ancient Origins, Shoigu has announced his desire to clone the 3,000-year-old soldiers telling the Russian Geographical Society, “Of course, we would like very much to find the organic matter and I believe you understand what would follow that. It would be possible to make something of it, if not Dolly the Sheep. In general, it will be very interesting.”

Dolly the Sheep refers to the first mammal ever cloned back in 1996. Now, a Russian-Swiss archeological team is reportedly searching for viable DNA from the graves to clone the ancient warriors. But many scientists are skeptical that this is even possible. No human has ever been cloned—that we know of…
